Nespresso U Giveaway

Nespresso Giveaway

That almost says it all, huh?

The Novice Chef, Bake Your Day, My Life as a Mrs, Pennies on a Platter, Lauren’s Latest, and I have teamed up with Nespresso for a pretty sweet giveaway. 5 winners will receive a Nespresso U and an Aeroccino Plus Frother!

The U is Nespresso’s newest single-cup machine. It features one-touch capsule brewing, a water tank than can be positioned to fit Tetris-style onto your kitchen countertop (I know I’m not the only one with this problem!), and it remembers the size of your favorite cup. Add frothy milk from the Aeroccino Plus and then just sit back and enjoy the quiet before the storm.

The sounds of birds, the ice maker on the fridge refilling, and the occasional hiss of the school bus’ air brakes. Because as soon as the alarm goes off and the other creatures are awake, it’s all chaotically downhill from there for the next 71 minutes.

But enough about my mornings, let’s talk about yours! Want a chance to brew fancy coffee drinks in your kitchen with a shiny new machine? Simply click the entries in the Rafflecopter widget below!

All-Clad 3-Quart Sauce Pan

It’s here! It’s the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways! Do you have all your entries in for each day’s loot? No? You have ’til midnight (Texas time!) tonight!

But today, on the 12th day of Christmas, there was an All-Clad 3-Quart Sauce Pan.

It’s a great all-purpose sauce pan, it’s perfect for stove-top macaroni & cheese, pasta sauce, chili, and soups. And we have one for you.

To enter the giveaway, simply answer the following question in the comments below: What is your favorite go-to cold-weather dinner?

Update: The random generator thingy has spoken: bmk with comment #92 is the winner! Please check your email for instructions on claiming your prize. The elves are waiting!

Jason stakes his claim on chicken pot pie. Specifically, the Pastry Queen’s chicken pot pie. It can be an insanely indulgent calorie bomb or just a delicious lighter bomb. It’s the cream cheese in the crust that sets it apart from other recipes.

But me? Macaroni & cheese, please! It’s warm, creamy, and can be jazzed-up with bacon! And, you know, green things to make it a little healthier.

Hope you’ve enjoyed playing a long as much as I’m going to have shopping for the winners this week. All giveaway winners will be announced tomorrow on each post so check back to see if you’ll be getting a special delivery!

Silpat Giveaway

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

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.)
