Silpat Giveaway

It’s the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways! On the 11th day of Christmas, there was a Silpat Baking Mat.

I am a huge, huge Silpat fan. It makes clean-up after honey-roasted nuts a breeze and it gives chocolate chip cookies those perfectly browned, crispy bottoms. And this one is the half-sheet size so it’s perfect for your large jelly roll pans.

BigKitchen is providing the Silpat for today’s giveaway. To enter, simply visit BigKitchen’s website, find one of your cooking Christmas wish list items, and then tell me about it in the comments section below! (And if you order from BigKitchen through 12/31, you can take 15% off with the code FOODIEBRIDE.)

Update: The random generator thingy has spoken: Jenn B with comment #180 is the winner! Please check your email for instructions on claiming your prize. The elves are waiting!

I have the pasta roller/cutter set for my mixer at the top of my wish list.

Giveaway #10: Envirosax Reusable Grocery Bags

in Giveaways

Planet Green by Envirosax

It’s the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways! On the 10th day of Christmas, there were Envirosax Reusable Grocery Bags.

They’re great for groceries, for packing the little one up for grandma’s for the weekend, and hauling toys up the stairs in 1 trip. And they’re way friendlier for the environment than plastic bags.

To enter the giveaway, simply answer the following question in the comments below: What was your favorite gift to receive as a kid?

Update: The random generator thingy has spoken: Mell with comment #250 and Coleen with comment #71 are the winners! Please check your email for instructions on claiming your prize. The elves are waiting!

When I was 9, I got a sparkly dark blue 10-speed bike. That was also the same year my baby brother got one of those Jeep Power Wheels. He saw it, ran toward it, jumped too high, and flew over it – almost into the burning fireplace. Greatest. Christmas. Ever. (Because no one got hurt, of course.)

Giveaway #9: Vanilla Beans

Vanilla beans

It’s the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways! On the 9th day of Christmas, there were vanilla beans.

I haven’t bought vanilla extract in years. I can make a 750ml bottle of my own with about a quarter of an order of vanilla beans. The rest? Split, scrape, add to batter/ice cream custard/cookies, repeat. Every dessert tastes better with those pretty little flecks of vanilla beans.

True story.

To enter the giveaway, simply answer the following question in the comments below: What dessert are you serving/looking forward to eating with your big Christmas/holiday meal?

Update: The random generator thingy has spoken: Jen L with comment #611 is the winner! Please check your email for instructions on claiming your prize. The elves are waiting!

I absolutely love Mince pie! It gets the weirdest looks, mostly because it’s traditionally known as mincemeat pie – and nobody wants to touch a dessert with “meat” in the title so I typically have at least a couple of slices leftover. But really, there’s no meat.

You can earn up to 4 extra entries by:
– Tweet about the giveaway (it’s easy, just click here!) and leave the link to your Tweet in the comments.

Giveaway #8: Cute Aprons!

in Giveaways

ASD Living Fantasia

It’s the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways! On the 8th day of Christmas, there were cute aprons.

I am a recovering apron hoarder. I still have a small (not small) weakness when it comes to seeing a cute apron hanging on a rack. But through compromise, I know have only 1 drawer in the kitchen for aprons. I can stuff as many aprons in there I can, but as soon as the drawer won’t close – it’s game over.

To enter the giveaway, simply answer the following question in the comments below: If you’re celebrating Christmas, or just cooking up a feast for two, when does the “big meal” happen – Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Update: The random generator thingy has spoken: Alaina with comment #373 and Jess B. with comment #193 are the winners! Please check your email for instructions on claiming your prize. The elves are waiting!

We celebrate Christmas Eve with a big dinner with my family and then repeat a big Christmas Day lunch with Jason’s family. And then it’s diet time.

You can earn up to 4 extra entries by:
– Tweet about the giveaway (it’s easy, just click here!) and leave the link to your Tweet in the comments.
– Leaving a separate comment below that you like us on Facebook.
