Thank you so much for the awesome response to this giveaway! I was certainly feeling the love. Without further ado, the winner is:

Amy #943: …tonight I am making a shrimp and lobster scampi for hubby and me and your Tuscan garlic chicken recipe for my girls (ages {almost} 7 and 4). We will all have mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli. My youngest, and I are getting ready to head into the kitchen to make your No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake recipe…

A huge thank you to everyone who entered! Man, I sure love all of your guts and will undoubtedly be throwing many of these giveaways out there in the near future.


I’m not a spontaneous person by nature. But Valentine’s Day must bring out the very small part of me that wants to live on the edge. I decided at 10:00 p.m. last night that the orange glazed chicken set to post today was just not going to cut it.

So I scrapped it and decided to honor this day of loooooove, by giving away a sweet box packed with a few of my favorite things. Humor me since a few of these are not kitchen/cooking related. They are just too fabulous not to share.

Let’s take a peek at what you’ll find inside the little box of love if you are the lucky winner:

valentines giveaway revised

1. This night-renewing serum is the most amazing stuff I’ve ever put on my face. My friend, Elizabeth, introduced me to these products and I am loving the changes in my skin. Loving. I am not a cosmetic/facial product junkie, unless you count L’Oreal mascara and sometimes eyeshadow so it didn’t take much convincing for me to spend a little bit more on actual skin care products. This serum is weightless and silky and light and makes me feel about 20 years younger by morning. So I want you to have some, too. Let’s be in denial of our age together, ok?

2. Like I always say, you just can’t live without a kitchen scale. From weighing roll dough to at-home science experiments with the kids, this is most definitely the only scale I need in my house (trust me, those bathroom scales can just go away, they do me no good).

3. I fully recognize that I may be the only person still living in a climate where slippers are a necessity. I’m afraid we may not thaw until June. Until then, I’ll be wearing these lovies. So cute, I kind of want to wear them to the grocery store (PS: I’m wearing them right this very instant). Plus, they are fantastically warm and comfy. They are on clearance right now so I’ll hurry and choose a winner so we can be sure to get your size (if not, we’ll come up with a snazzy replacement, promise!).

4. I really love this lotion. That’s all. Not fancy. Not shmancy. Just really great.

5. Since these are the only knives I really use anymore, I figure I ought to share the love. Sharp and pretty. What more could you ask for?

6. You’d think that these nested round cutters wouldn’t be that life-changing, but I’m telling you, I use mine all.the.time. I am in constant disbelief at how handy they are. We’re talking donuts, biscuits, cookies. I never knew I needed a 3 1/6 round cutter until I actually had one.

7. I’ve waxed poetic about this lip butter before so it’s no wonder it should appear again today. It’s glossy and moisturizing and I don’t go anywhere without it. I’m kind of partial to the Jasmine color myself because it’s pretty neutral which works for me and my afraid-of-bold-lips self. The winner can choose whichever color they like!

To enter, simply leave ONE comment on this post telling me anything you like (a simple Happy Valentine’s Day, or better yet, what you are eating for Valentine’s Day, will do!).

Winner will be picked sometime this weekend so hurry and enter!
