Three Year Blogiversary Giveaway

Giveaways

I can’t believe it, but my little blog turned three today! It seems like just yesterday I hit publish on my Pesto Lasagna and wondered if anyone would ever find my tiny corner of the web. Thank you all for reading and commenting, and I’d especially like to thank those of you who have taken a chance and tried one of my recipes and left feedback. I know trying recipes without reviews from some random food blogger may feel a little “risky” so it really makes my day when people go out of their way and give one of my recipes a try! I truly appreciate each and every one of my readers!

As a small thank you, I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway. There are two prizes, but you can only enter to win one – just pick which one you’d most like and leave a comment letting me know!

1. Any cookbook you’d like on Amazon. Please leave a link to the book you’d like in your comment.

OR

2. A magazine subscription to one my favorite foodie magazines – Bon Appetit, Cooking Light, InStyle, or Real Simple. I just love InStyle and Real Simple and they always have a recipe section, so they totally count as being foodie magazines, right? Again, let me know which one you’d like in your comment.

Entries must be in by 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, March 4. Good luck!

The fine print: I’m sponsoring this giveaway myself. The winners will be picked with random.org on Monday, March 5 and announced shortly thereafter.

Valentine’s Day Heart Cookies

Hotel Chocolat Giveaway

When Hotel Chocolat recently contacted me about trying their premium chocolates, how could I resist? Hotel Chocolat (shok-o-la) is a UK chocolatier that specializes in high-end luxury chocolates, so I jumped at the chance to check out their new hip shop on Newbury...

Ad Hoc Giveaway

When my parents visited Boston over Mother‘s Day weekend, my mom and I got up early on Saturday morning so we could head over to Williams Sonoma. We weren‘t just going to check out all their gorgeous cookware though – we were on a mission to meet Thomas Keller at his...

Girard’s Salad Dressing Giveaway

I’ve mentioned before that I don’t make many main course salads because it’s a pain to chop up all the necessary veggies to make a restaurant quality plate of greens at home. But, I also tend to get lazy about making anything other than a boring balsamic vinaigrette,...
