Giveaway the Second!!!

I have exciting news. Though I wanted to share it after I posted my Eat, Pray, Love review, the weekend had other plans for me. Now I can’t hold it in any longer! My impatience is your gain.

It’s time for the second SLB Giveaway! Whoo! CSN Stores has provided me a $25 gift code to bestow upon one lucky reader. This gift code is valid at all of their 200+ online retailers, so you can find pretty much whatever your heart desires.

On my first giveaway post, I provided some price-point purchase suggestions with an interior design theme. This time around, I think I’ll keep in the spirit of the original post by combining EAT and LOVE again:

---If you want some bang for your buck, try this 4 piece Pyrex bakeware set. Glass is great for cooking/baking, and I love going from the oven to the table with these pans.

---I have a thing for tea, so it follows that I have a thing for mugs. You can get two of these pretties—one for you and one for your friend, roommate, sweetheart, or spouse.

---If you’re into heart-shaped cooking tools, you’re in luck! You can have heart-shaped cakes and ice cubes  and cookies and muffinseven heart-shaped waffles.

(In case you’re wondering how I found these suggestions, all of the CSN sites have a handy price range selector on their sidebars. I know, I know...Stop your talking, lady, and deliver the goods!)

To enter, leave a comment here telling me about your favorite thing to cook. Or just leave a comment about anything. (This is a great way for any lurkers to introduce themselves!) Since Eat, Pray, Love was written into 3 parts, the giveaway will stay open for three days. At 11:00PM EST on Wednesday, March 23, the giveaway will close, and I'll use a random number generator to select the winning post. Good luck!


  1. Oooo...contest! yay! I'm going to treat this as my favorite thing to cook (i.e. a meal) rather than bake (i.e. all the cookies I told you about a few posts ago). So...I've been cooking more and more elaborately lately, but one of my favorites is a very easy teriyaki marinade that I use on chicken. I always come back to that recipe!

  2. My favorite thing to cook is the chicken lettuce wraps recipe you sent me. Or the flatbread one with caramelized onions.
    My favorite thing to bake is peach blueberry cobbler. Or chocolate chip banana bread- basically all our classics!

  3. My current favorite thing to cook: kale chips.

  5. My fav thing to cook is Creole Gumbo. I fell in love with Cajun/Creole food when my mother married my Cajun stepfather. He is the best cook ever with my favs being Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffe, and jambalaya. He actually came in second place in a Texas Gumbo cookoff.

  6. My favorite thing to cook is chili! Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. I'm not a great cooker, but I have always loved throwing together guacamole with my mom's recipe. It's so yummy!

  8. Amy, I'm so glad to have found your blog! I'm always happy to find more friends who have them. :) For the sake of entering your contest, my favorite thing to cook is spinach dip. My aunt gave me a great recipe that's good on almost anything!
