Rachel's Reviews and Giveaways! 2 months featured ad space for your blog or business!

"I’m in the process of redesigning my blog layout since I’m moving over to a self-hosted WordPress blog, and I plan to have some featured advertising space near the top of my sidebar. This will be available for a monthly rate, but I’m also opening up space to feature 2 winners of this giveaway!

Each winner will have space for a 150×150 button linking to your blog or business, featured in a premium space in my sidebar. This is a great way to increase awareness of your website or brand and drive traffic.

One of the things I enjoy most about blogging is the power of networking and helping other blogs achieve success, so I’m looking forward to promoting your blogs. If you have a WAHM or etsy business, here’s a free opportunity to get your name out there.

The mandatory entry is super easy – just leave your name and email address to be entered. Website and graphic must be family-friendly.

Win It: Two winners will each receive 2 months of featured ad space located on my right sidebar for the button/graphic of your choice. Open worldwide!

I’m using the Rafflecopter beta program to hopefully make giveaways easier for you to enter and for me to manage. Please comment below if you have feedback or questions, but you must use the Rafflecopter entry form to enter.

Here’s how it works: The mandatory entry is listed at the top. Hit “click for instructions” under each entry, and the necessary links or info will appear. Then click the green “I did this” button, and it will prompt for your email address and any information needed to verify the entry, such as your twitter username.

Helpful hints: if you don’t see the form, try refreshing the page or using a different browser. You must have Javascript enabled. If you don’t see the Tweet button, try hovering over the green “I did this” button first."

Italian Wedding Soup

Italian Wedding Soup
Serves 6

1/2 pound ground beef, extra lean
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Romano cheese
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
5 3/4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cups kale, thinly sliced
1 cup orzo pasta
1/3 cup carrot, finely chopped

In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, meat, egg, cheese, basil and onion
powder, shape into 3/4 inch balls.

In a large saucepan, heat broth to boiling, stir in kale, orzo, carrot and
meatballs. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook at a slow
boil for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Stir frequently to prevent

Per serving: 280 Calories; 8g Fat; 24g Protein; 28g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 58mg Cholesterol; 578mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1 1/2 Grain (Starch); 2 1/2 Lean Meat; 1/2 Vegetable; 1 Fat.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: I like bread with soup so either bake some in your
bread maker or buy a nice loaf of crusty bread to go with this. Add a salad
if you want, but you've got tons of green stuff going on this hearty soup.

VEGETARIANS: Skip the meatballs by omitting first 3 ingredients. Add extra vegetables to

vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

KOSHER: Use beef broth instead of chicken.
