Grandma's Cakes and A Great Coffee Giveaway

My dearest Grandma sent me some pictures of cakes she made for my Cousins birthday she says they are just simple sponge cakes but they look pretty amazing to me shame I missed out on them! Heres the link to my Grandma's chocolate cake


Also I was contacted by Jason a Marketer for good coffee about a really cool coffee program by the Arbor Day Foundation, an organization founded in the 1970's to save the rainforest's care for and plant new trees.

They have a great organic, shade grown and fair trade coffee, that came highly rated by coffeereview.com. It even helps to save the rain forest with its great growing techniques one bag saves 62 square feet or a staggering 2 square feet per cup. This is impressive I think I will start buying from them, as you get a good cup of coffee and protect the environment at the same time.

Here's the link for more information http://www.arborday.org/shopping/coffee/office/

Jason has kindly offered to ship some of this coffee to a lucky reader, just leave a comment, and I will use randomnumber.org to pick the winner by midnight tomorrow night.

Here's to good green coffee and cake!
