Giveaway!

June 28, 2010

The giveaway is now closed.

I was thrilled when CSN Stores contacted me to ask if I wanted to do another giveaway. I love entering giveaways, and it’s really fun to host them too. The really great part is that you can win a $60 gift certificate to use at any of CSN store’s 200+ websites. With that many websites to choose from, I have a feeling you’ll be able to find just the perfect thing to spend that gift certificate on. If you read my blog, you’re probably interested in cooking, but did you know that CSN also has a lighting store? Ceiling lights, wall lights, outdoor lights table lamps…it’s all there. If you have pets, check out AllModernPet.com for some really cute items. Are you like me, always eyeing up that cotton candy maker in the Sky Mall catalog? Well, maybe that’s just the thing to spend your gift certificate on!


Thank you to CSN Stores for sponsoring this giveaway!

Winner of the Giveaway!

April 5, 2010

I am happy to announce that the winner of the CSN giveaway is…

Kim of What the Whisk

In her comment, she said that she’s been wishing for a food scale. Wish no more! I will send you an email to get your mailing information and CSN Stores will send you a shiny new scale. Thank you to everyone who entered! It was fun to hear from people I know (well, “know” in a virtual sense) as well as to hear from some new people.

The Fine Print: To select the winner, I went to Random.org and generated a random number. The result was 9, and Kim left the 9th comment.

This looks kind of boring without a photo, so here’s a cute one for you.

Wake me up when the bowl is full!

It’s a giveaway!

The giveaway is closed

I’m very excited to be hosting my first giveaway! I asked myself what would my readers like to win? I couldn’t decide, so I’m giving you a choice of two things that I find very handy in the kitchen.

What do you think about a hand blender? This comes in handy for puréeing soups – you can puree them right in the pot instead of transferring the soup to your blender or food processor. Summer is almost here, so maybe you’ll want to puree some fresh fruit for a margarita or daiquiri? A hand blender is a great addition to home bars as well as kitchens. But wait! It has a chopper attachment too! I have one similar to this and it comes in really handy for chopping a small amount of nuts or chocolate. I’m sure you’ll find lots of uses for this Oster Hand Blender with Chopper Attachment.


Do you have a kitchen scale? I love mine! I’m so happy when a recipe provides measurements in weight. It’s more precise and it’s easier: you can put a bowl on the scale, zero out the weight, and start adding ingredients. I also use my scale to weigh dry pasta before cooking so we get just the amount we need for dinner. This Cusinart Elite Digital Scale will come in handy for all kinds of things.


Thank you to CSN Stores for sponsoring this giveaway! I especially appreciate that they gave me the opportunity to give you a choice of two items.

Ready to enter? Just leave a comment and tell me which item you’d like to win. Enter before midnight Central time on Sunday April 4 (that’s Easter). I’ll pick a random winner and will announce the winner Monday evening. Thanks for entering, and good luck!

The fine print:

  • One entry per person, please.
  • Make sure your email address is in the comment form. I’ll contact the winner to get your mailing information, which I’ll pass on to CSN Stores so they can ship you your item.
  • This is open to US and Canadian residents only.
