Hello everyone! I know you’ve been enjoying our holiday event because I’ve been reading comments, tweets, Facebook statuses, and getting emails saying so. Every individual or company participating in this event in some way is thrilled to hear that! Here we are at the most exciting part of each week … where we announce the winners of the daily giveaways. Hopefully, you’ve been following along. (Here’s the complete line-up.) I really recommend you do follow along to check out each blogger’s phenomenal recipe and enter daily because every entry goes towards the fantastic final prizes—Caveman Cookies gift package of $89 value, $150 shopping spree at largest gluten-free store Free From Gluten, and the 5200 Healthy Lifestyle package from Vitamix (comes with the grain container and is valued at $550). But wait there’s more … I also recommend that you follow along because some additional prizes continue to be thrown into the mix and all entries will be eligible for those, too. What does that mean? It means that if you are just joining our event or got started even a little bit late you might want to check out the posts you missed. While the “daily” giveaways for most of the previous posts are closed, you can still leave a comment on those posts and that comment will give you yet another entry for the final prizes and the “surprise” prizes.
Without further ado, here are all the winners for Week 2! Congratulations to all!
First, the winners of the “added” giveaways this week …

Next, the daily giveaway winners …
The winner of Modern Spice and iSPICE app combo:
Kmercer–“I’m gluten free, mom is diabetic, brother-in-law is lactose intolerant. I actually make a lot of recipes that all of us can eat, and so when I’m visiting during the holidays I make a lot of the meals and I really love making great food and sharing it with the people I love. This bread looks fabulous!”
The winner of Paleo Comfort Foods:
Katie Kruger—“Wow what a recipe! I am trying to learn to cook all things gluten free for my son who was diagnosed gluten intolerant this summer, and myself (wheat sensitive) am just beginning to explore paleo diet and am intrigued. I’m especially wanting recipes for holiday treats as we’ll have to forego so many of our traditional favorites, this monkey bread will definitely be on our new menu! I have the Paleo cookbook on my wish list, so winning would be delightful. Thank you for all the great recipes, blog lists and links!”

The Cooking for Isaiah winner:
Mara–We are actually traveling this holiday to Ohio which is something we don’t normally do. So, not much simplification (even though that’s my motto in life) going on here, except that I love being able to ride in the car while my husband drives (the whole 13 hours) while I read and relax. So it will actually be quite relaxing
