At home I’m a slacker and the proof can be found in an assortment of colors usually all-over the shirt I managed to keep clean all day at work- go figure! Anywhoo, love the chance to win and maybe this apron could be my specially designated HOME kitchen attire.

#462: Rachel R “ooooh Mel. . I am swooning over this apron- which would get me out of my husband’s icky BBQ apron- AND would give my friends/family many hysterical laughs as my obsession with your recipes would be rightfully emblazoned across my body during my daily Mel cooking sessions. . .fingers crossed!! I am going over to Cost Apparel to see if these are for sale .. this needs to be on my Christmas list!

#605: Kandi v “Always an apron. I am way too messy of a cook!”

#621: Karen “I love your recipes. We have tried tons of them. I actually created my own Mel’s cookbook; printing off the recipes I think my family will like.

I’m trying to contain my excitement about today. Nope, not working!

Are you ready for this?

Together, At Cost Apparel and I (me, Mel), are giving away 30 Mel’s Kitchen Cafe aprons. That’s 30 chances to win!

Since I think everyone can be a rockstar in the kitchen, each apron says:
apron1

The lettering will be white printed on a black apron just like you see here. Cute? Cute.

You can earn up to two entries. 1) Leave a comment right here on this post telling me whether you are an apron-wearer while cooking or not (winners will be chosen indiscriminately whether or not you say you wear an apron or not; promise) and 2) go on over to At Cost Apparel’s facebook page, like it, and then leave an additional comment on this post telling me you did just that.

You can do one, both or none. Your choice!

Giveaway winners will be announced October 1st. Thanks to Kelly at At Cost Apparel for making this giveaway possible!

Meanwhile, I’m off to dance around my kitchen in my new apron ignoring the fact that it’s probably pretty tacky to be wearing an apron with my own logo on it.

apron3

Giveaway sponsored by At Cost Apparel. I know jumping through hoops on a giveaway can be annoying but to that I say, get over it this time (in the nicest way possible), because these aprons are just too fun to pass up and I think At Cost Apparel deserves a little facebook love for making this possible, don’t you?

  1. Julie says:

    Mel, I received my apron on Saturday and I love it!! Thank you so much!!

  2. Karen Anderson says:

  3. Tina says:

    I just found your site via Pinterest! Thanks for sharing your ‘rockstar’ recipes, I’ll be catching up with your site the next few days 🙂
    I wear aprons…white long one tied at the waist when I’m feeling modern…one of two vintage ones I own when I can or bake. So if I won your apron, I’d have to wear it first time out when I made potstickers-I can rock those 😮 !!

  4. Lori says:

    Well, here’s the thing. My husband bought me a really cute apron for Christmas, as I may have mentioned a time or two…or a hundred that I would like one. And at first, like for a week, I wore it. Now, I usually forget to wear it until I splash something or spill something on myself, at which point I remember…I should be wearing my apron!!!

  5. Marla Solano says:

    I heart aprons!

  6. Ashley Perkins says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel on facebook.

    I have a grungy man apron that my wife kindly stitched my name into, it gets washed only when absolutely needed.

  9. Vanda says:

    I would be an apron wearer if I owned one!

  10. Marie says:

    I should wear one more than I do. I’d be tempted to wear this one every day just to remind my family how great my cooking skills really are!

  11. Marie says:

    I should probably wear one more than I do. And if this were mine, I definitely would!

  12. A. B. says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I wear aprons most times when cooking and baking. It keeps the splatters off my clothes. 🙂

  13. Liz says:

    I don’t usually wear an apron, but will as I need to. I get messy cooking. Thanks for the opportunity.

  14. Kim in MD says:

    I always wear an apron when I cook. I would wear your apron with pride, Mel!

  15. Julie says:

    I LOVE APRONS! Started to collect them after all my shirts were getting ruined!!! One of my favorites is Keep Calm and Bake On! You do Rock the kitchen, Mel! Thanks for helping me – especially with yeast!!!

  16. Jan says:

    Love aprons, need them badly, always wipe my hands on my sides, so my pants have flour hand prints if I don’t! Thanks for all the loved recipes.

  17. Nicole H. says:

    I’d like to be someone who always wears an apron, that would be wise, I just mostly forget to.

  18. Angie says:

    I don’t normally wear aprons, but I’d wear that one! (proudly – I love your site!)

  19. Carolyn G says:

    I have an apron collection but rarely wear them because they are so pretty

  20. Michelle Resnick says:

  21. hayley says:

    I liked at cost apparel on facebook

  23. Jessica w says:

    I was never an apron wearer but the hubs gets annoyed if I ruin my clothes so I try to wear them all the time now

  24. claire says:

    Depends on what I’m making & what I’m wearing, but yes, I do like to wear an apron in the kitchen!

  25. Emily C. says:

    I love wearing a whimsically printed apron with birds–somehow it makes it more fun to bake. Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. Andrea Jardine says:

    I wear aprons mostly when I have clothes on that I don’t want to mess up. But it’s hard to remember to wear them, or I would wear them more…they certainly make me feel legit.

  27. Kellie says:

    I try to wear aprons but I forget, until a splash reminds me 😉

  28. Abbey says:

    I tend to only wear an apron when I’m making bread, at Thanksgiving & Christmas and when my Mom is visiting. She would be horrified to know that I don’t wear one most of the time.

  29. Janet says:

    Always wear an apron! I have several and will wear yours proudly if I win one Mel. Why not cook and look like a “rockstar” at the same time. Love your website Mel. It’s my “go to” for recipes and read it every day.

  30. Liz says:

    I love your recipes and your apron. You are one of my favorites.

  31. Alyssa B says:

    Not really an apron wearer, but my mom has been trying to convince me for years.

  32. Jennifer says:

    Yep, I wear an apron when I’m cooking and washing the dishes…sure could use a new one though!

  33. Jennifer says:

    Yep, I wear on apron when I’m cooking and washing the dishes…sure could use a new one though!

  34. Jodie Potter says:

    Hello,

    Just found your website via Pinterest. I’m a terrible cook (tried the vanilla pudding cinnamon rolls which ultimately resulted in a cinnamon loaf!!!) however your recipes all look great so I’m not giving up!!! I’d love an apron!!!
    Thanks,
    Jodie

  35. Mel Nelson says:

    I don’t own an apron, therefore I don’t use one. But if I did since my name is Mel too, this apron would be awesome!

  36. Lana says:

    Gee whiz. Aprons?? Who has time? Actually, occasionally I wear one–like on Sundays when roll making and flour dust can be found. But I really should be more diligent. If only I knew where to get a good apron……….. 🙂

  37. Jennifer Allen says:

    I am definitely an apron-wearer. Avoid grease stains on shirts at any cost!

  38. Ashley Nicole. says:

    I don’t really wear one all too often. It slips my mind all the time, but I have actually been meaning to make one at some point.

  39. Julie says:

    I usually wear an apron. Love your recipes! You’re amazing!

  40. Amanda B says:

    I wear an apron when I remember. And I usually dont wear one when I am wearing a white shirt. Ugh. But I love your website!

  41. My oldest daughter calls herself a Rockstar and posts her Instagram photos with that logo. More than that my youngest daughter’s name is Melanie (Mel). This would be a perfect Xmas gift. Melanie(Mel) also loves to cook!! I am the Mom. This Apron is absolutely Perfect!!! I can just see it on my Rockstar daughter!!!

  42. Rick says:

    I wear an apron most of the time and I have one for my grandson to wear in the kitchen with me.

  43. Karen says:

    I am an occasional apron-wearer. Mostly I end up staining my t-shirts because I only remember the apron after I’ve already gotten something on my shirt.

  44. Betsy Hartmann says:

    I have been wanting to start wearing an apron in the kitchen for some time now but don’t currently own one, so it would be so great if I won one.

  45. angie bailey says:

    I wear an apron all the time. If not, my clothes are a mess. I’m glad to see there are other apron wearing ladies out there.

  46. Liz says:

    A nice idea and a great apron. Thank you.

  47. Abby C. says:

    I usually wear an apron – it’s a cute handmade one with strawberries on it, that I won at a Chinese auction. I put most of my tickets in for it and love it so much! It’d be so fun to have two aprons that I won! By the way, I’m making the pork burritos this weekend. Keep the great recipes coming.

  48. Teresa says:

    I “liked” the FB page!

  49. Teresa says:

    I definitely wear an apron!

  50. Nanci says:

    Left you a comment, flipped to At Cost Apparel “LIKED” and making comment 2 for the WIN!!
    (I hope) love to cook and THANKS FOR THE RECIPES and the APRON ~~~~~~~!!

  51. Nanci says:

    Like to wear an apron when cooking, keeps down the loads of laundry!! LOVE THIS SITE AND RECIPES!!!!!!

  52. Michelle says:

    Cute apron!! I wear an apron about half the time I’m cooking. It depends on how much I like what I’m wearing, and how messy (or stain-worthy) the food is! 🙂

  53. heather says:

    I LOVE aprons and would just love to win this one.

  54. Sarah M says:

    I do on occasion. It really depends on what I’m wearing or if I’m using a lot of flour.

  55. Marcie says:

    Love your blog! I should always wear an apron because it seems when I don’t I get food on myself and when I do wear an apron it stays perfectly clean.

  56. Nikelle says:

    Aprons are definitely a MUST WEAR for me. I absolutely love to cook but all that wonderful food goodness usually gets all over me and my little kitchen so aprons are a necessity. It was actually one of the first gifts that my husband gave me when we were dating because I didn’t have one of my own yet. 🙂

  57. Hannah says:

    Yes!!!!!! I love to make aprons and then wear them!!!!! But it is more of a fashion statement then protection for me.

  58. Dwight Blood says:

    Went to the other page, discovered it was in Orem UT, followed all instructions.

  59. Dwight Blood says:

    I thought about entering the apron drawing since I have no apron and use a gallon of zout each week to spray on green, yellow, red, white, and rainbow colored spills and stains on my polo shirts. Then I saw the word “cute” at least twice describing the aprons and realized that I could probably not wear a cute apron anyway even though the odds are a zillion to one I wouldn’t win anyway. So I will continuing spraying with zout and slopping on my shirts. Oh well.

  60. Valerie says:

    I am not an apron wearer – but maybe it’s because I don’t have a cute one?

  61. Larilyn says:

    I am an apron wearer – more so when I’m baking as opposed to just cooking. That flour gets everywhere!! =/

  62. Holly says:

    I should wear an apron, instead of splattering on my clothes. We have a sign in our kitchen that says, “This meal is brought to you by Mel.” Not kidding, my husband gave it to me this summer for our tenth anniversary, because we have a running joke at our house. I cook so much from your site that we literally would not have dinner without you! Love your site!

  63. Wendy Teel says:

    I would love a Kitchen Rockstar apron because I’m 100% living, cooking proof that “…everyone can be a rockstar in the kitchen” is true! The delectable recipes on your site make it oh so easy for the cook to shine. More importantly, is that it’s food the whole family loves and asks for again and again. What better compliment can you ask for? Our kids get to peruse your site in search of yummy items to include on our weekly menu plan and they love the pictures. We’re making Asian Lettuce Wraps tonight along with the Oreo Cheesecake Bites. We’ve also enjoyed the BBQ Chicken Salad with Creamy BBQ Cilantro Lime Dressing this week. And the Sweet Mustard Baked Chicken was a huge hit! Thanks for helping make our kitchen a rockin’ place to be and eat!

  64. Cass says:

    Love the apron!! I would wear an apron all the time if I remember…unfortunately, 4 kids have destroyed my brain’s ability to function at normal speed and capacity! I ruin a many shirts from grease or tomato sauce spills. Good thing I’m white trash enough to still wear them. Anyway, much love to you and your family! We miss and love you!!

  65. Shawna says:

    I love aprons! How does anyone stay clean without one? Also, anyone who has met me knows that I LOVE your blog. I wish we were related 🙂 ….is that weird?

  66. Eileen says:

    I liked on Facebook!

  67. Eileen says:

    I LOVE wearing aprons! I have some frilly ones, and they make me feel all girlie and adorable:)

  68. Vanessa Bugbee says:

    I liked them on Facebook

  69. Vanessa Bugbee says:

    I liked them on Facebook

  70. Julie says:

    Cute aprons! I usually don’t wear one unless I’m working with popping grease.

  71. Vanessa Bugbee says:

    I’m an apron wearer if there’s flour or oil involved. If not, I usually forget. It also depends on how hot my apartment is 😉

  72. Shelly says:

    I usually wear an apron. I have a pretty one that I only use for baking, and an everyday one. I could always use another!

  73. Liz says:

    Love your recipes and now need your apron to make them. Thanks Mel.

  74. Stacie A. says:

    I’m pretty sure I need one of these so all of my cooking has your trade mark on it. About 70% of the things I cook are from your site! I use an apron when I know it’s gonna be messy- like rolling out bread dough or making spaghetti sauce.

  75. Manda says:

    If I remember I wear an apron, but I don’t usually remember until I’m already covered with splotches.

  76. Patti Henderson says:

    I sometimes wear an apron, but my oldest daughter does (they do in school). I do when company comes or I bake from scratch = rarely. That would change if I had one of these awesome aprons!! Love your site, Mel. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  77. Dezi A says:

    I like them on Facebook

  78. Dezi A says:

    I love wearing aprons! 🙂

  79. tarryn says:

    I am a sometimes apron-wearer. Especially if it will involve a lot of flour and a rolling pin. Cute apron!

  80. Abbie Butler says:

    I totally need to wear an apron, but I don’t. I would if I got one from Mel’s Kitchen though!! We love you and all of your fantastic recipes!

  81. Brenda says:

    I don’t own an apron, or I would wear one! Instead, I put on an old t-shirt when cooking anything messy!

  82. Heather says:

    It all depends on if I want to protect the clothes I am wearing. I would say I wear an apron about 10% of the time.

  83. crystal says:

    I “liked” their page 🙂

  84. crystal says:

    I wear an apron most of the time. Sometimes I remember halfway through cooking 😉

  85. Amie says:

    I wear an apron! Especially on Sundays……and tomorrow is my birthday so pick me! 🙂

  86. Joanna says:

    I always wear an apron… at least when cooking with my toddler!

  87. Melanie says:

    yes! Homemade aprons, one from Hawaii, holiday ones!! Love your recipes, love your site, love your name ha ha. I liked them on facebook too! Thanks for the opportunity to add another apron to the collection 🙂

  88. Cheryl says:

    Always….Love aprons!

  89. Alison says:

    I always wear aprons! Would love to win!

  90. Anne Schofield says:

    Considering the way I cook, I should always wear an apron. I rarely do, but wish I would think of it before starting. I do have an apron, but maybe it is not cute enough? I think one of these lovely aprons would have me wanting to wear it all the time! Especially to hide all those ridiculous grease spots I can’t seem to banish from my clothes.

  91. Rhiannon Gonzalez says:

    Oh and I went over and liked At Cost Apparel on my Facebook page!

  92. Rhiannon Gonzalez says:

    I don’t currently wear an apron because I don’t have one but I am looking to get one (or win one ;)) so I can join the apron wearing club! And save my clothes while I am at it!

  93. Dawn P. says:

    I usually wear an apron because if not I end up wearing whatever I’m cooking.

  94. Cheree Daley says:

    I want to wear an apron all the time…but I’m lazy and usually have a bunch of dirty aprons so I choose not to wear one because I don’t have a clean one! If no one is around, I just throw the dirty one on 🙂

  95. Shante says:

    I am an apron wearer. Who wants flour all over their clothes all of the time? I guess I get a little messy in the kitchen. 🙂

  96. Dora says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel on FB! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  97. Nancy says:

    I always wear an apron. Guess I’m just too messy not to.

  98. Stephanie Daw says:

    No…I don’t wear an apron, but I want one that says Mel’s Kitchen Cafe! I love you so much!

  99. Sandee says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel on Facebook. And even if you don’t choose me, we both know that I’m your favorite reader. *wink wink*

  100. Sandee says:

    I nearly always wear an apron when cooking. My favorite one is black, in fact. It was my waitressing apron from years and years ago.

  101. Stephanie Daw says:

    No…I din’t wear an apron, but I want one that says Mel’s Kitchen Cafe! I love you so much!

  102. Michaela says:

    When I do wear an apron, I wear one of my old Jamba Juice aprons that I got while working there about 10 years ago. I’m definitely in need of a few new ones 🙂

  103. Marianne says:

    I don’t typically wear an apron but I should considering I have ruined half my shirts. Please help me save my wardrobe:)

  104. Jackie says:

    Would love to be an apron wearer, but I don’t have one! Seems silly, I don’t think about wearing one until its to late and I’m already a mess- thanks for helping me remember how much fun making dinner can be, after 20+ years of it, I had forgotten. My husband and kids appreciates it too!

  105. Terressa T. says:

    I liked “at cost apparel” on facebook

  106. Terressa T. says:

    I wear an apron for cooking AND cleaning. I pretty much love aprons-my kids wear aprons when they help me too. Everyone has their own 🙂

  107. Becky says:

    I liked the facebook page.

  108. Becky says:

    By far my favorite blog to visit for amazing recipes! I wish I was an apron wearer, because I am a messy cooker, but I never remember to put them on!

  109. Moriah says:

    I didn’t use to wear aprons but now I do, and I’ve started collecting aprons from places I travel!

  110. Nic says:

    I always wear an apron! It’s like I’m a 70-year-old granny stuck in a 35-year-old’s body!! 🙂

  111. Monika says:

    I do not wear an apron and I’m always a mess when I’m done cooking dinner.

  112. Lisa Carson says:

    I’m not a huge apron wearer. But when one of my daughters reminds me to put it on, I do

  117. Alicia W. says:

    Love the apron! Like so many others, I should wear an apron more often. I am pretty good about wearing one when I am wearing Sunday best, but not so much on a weekday. I would definitely make an effort to wear this as often as possible! Love it!

  118. Ciara says:

    I usually don’t wear my apron but need to get into the habit. I have several stains on several shirts that have come from my kitchen endeavors. 🙂

  119. Janae says:

    Just liked “at cost apparel” on Facebook! Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  120. Janae says:

    Three things I absolutely love in life: 1) Food 2) Food from your website 3) a good apron! I’m somewhat lacking #3 because my sweet mom made me a super floral/crazy/wild/way-too-bold-for-the-kitchen apron that I only use when necessary. I would love to have this apron to wear all the time!

  121. Jen T says:

    Totally an apron wearer! These are too cute, and would definitely make me dance around my kitchen! Thanks Mel!

  122. Kim Hansen says:

    I am totally an apron wearer in the kitchen. I am messy, but messy always tastes good, right?

  123. Alice-Anne says:

    I am an apron wearer when I remember. Usually I forget and find tomato sauce on a white shirt. I would love one of these!

  124. Lisa Mower says:

    I never wear an apron, but love to cook and love your blog. A lot of my favorite go to meals are from you so thanks a ton. Your blog has made family meal time a little bit easier to accomplish. I’d love the apron just cause I love your site.

  135. Kristina Tietjen says:

    I wear an apron about half the time. Love this giveaway!

  140. Tracie W. says:

    Definitely an apron wearer. Where else would I be able to just wipe my hands?

  141. Bernadette says:

    I don’t wear a apron unless I have on some thing really nice and am in a hurry and don’t feel like changing.

  142. Brandie says:

    Never use to wear one but I am fast learning the benefits of them. I have an old one I dug out and have been using so would LOVE a new one!

  143. Melissa Parry says:

    Totally liked their page! I’m actually looking into using them for an upcoming project. Very cool!

  144. Karen Haynes says:

    I have recently started to wear an apron as I am now spending more time in the kitchen.

  145. Melissa Parry says:

    I sometimes where an apron I the kitchen. But I would definitely use one of these! Love your recipes!

  146. Tina says:

    Just “liked” and posted my comment on At Cost Apparel’s facebook page.

  147. Tina says:

    Hello! I LOVE aprons! I have to admit that I do have a few that I just hang on a pegged shelf in my kitchen just because I think they are too pretty to get grease on them! LOL But….I DO have 3 that I wear all the time – not everyday, but whenever I am deep-frying or baking. I would love to have the one from Mel’s kitchen! What a cute saying! I AM a kitchen rockstar…lol. I am now heading over to At Cost Apparel’s facebook page to post my second comment.

  148. Tiffany says:

    I would totally rock it out in my kitchen wearing your apron! It’s super exciting, how fab! 😀

  149. Chelsea says:

    I love your aprons! They express your personality (that I know just from reading your blog:). I need to wear aprons more often but usually only break them out when there’s raw meat or grease involved.

  150. Leisa says:

    I “liked” At Cost Apparel on facebook; I’d love to win your apron!

  151. Leisa says:

    I do love wearing aprons, but when I’m in a hurry I usually forget. This doesn’t work out too well for me since when I’m in a hurry, I usually make a mess!

  158. Tina says:

    I frequently wear an apron while cooking, although not all the time.
    What a fun give away.

  159. CoyAnn KIlmer says:

    I LOVE this apron! 🙂 I love this website 🙂 I would be an apron wearer if I had such a cute one like this.

  160. Liz says:

    Love you healthy recipes, Mel which I receive by email. A great apron for sure and I’d love to win one. Thanks!

  161. Jae says:

    I don’t wear an apron, but I should. I usually have to change my shirt after baking, and sometimes even after cooking!

  162. Alicia says:

    I currently am not an apron wearer. However, only because I only have a boring one. This one would be fun! 🙂

  163. juanita says:

    I enjoy wearing an apron but i haven’t for a long time because my old one is so stained and ugly that i’m embarrassed if someone should see me in it. Love your recipes and humor!

  164. Sharese Hall says:

    I have an apron but do not wear it very often, I guess I am just too lazy. Unless it is Sunday and I am hurrying to get some food in the crockpot early in the morning before Church. I don’t want to splatter on my church clothes. Also when I have my kids cooking next to me they usually insist that we all wear our aprons to all look like professional cooks. Love it!

  165. Bri says:

    I became a fan of at cost apparel. Pick me Mel!!!

  166. Bri says:

    I totally am an apron wearer and this needs to be in my kitchen!!!!

  167. Benton says:

  171. Shannon says:

    i try to remember to wear an apron, but I usually forget and then I’m sorry! I have one apron that is in pretty sad shape because I’ve had it forever and it’s gotten kind of stained.

  172. Michelle R says:

    Just “liked” Cost Apparel!

  173. Michelle R says:

    I always wear an apron. More often than not, I’m cooking with a 2-year old “helper.” Aprons are mandatory!

  174. Cammee says:

    It depends on whether I have on cute clothes or not! Cute clothes=apron. Scroungy clothes=no apron. I’m dying over this apron. NEED! I’m not a facebooker (I’m pretty sure that’s a real word now) so this is it.

  175. Laura says:

    YES! I wear an apron to cook in, do the dishes in, fold the laundry or clean the house. An apron signifies “I mean business”…..otherwise I might just take a nap instead :)!

  176. Vika says:

    I just liked At Cost Apparel’s on Facebook and am hopeful!:))

  177. Vika says:

    I don’t really wear aprons when baking/cooking mainly because we don’t have one and I never have the chance to get one. But I would adore a Mel’s apron and would always where it proud in the kitchen!!

  178. Sarah says:

    I almost always wear an apron when cooking because I am just too sloppy and ruin all my clothes otherwise! These are SO cute!

  179. Celia says:

    It depends on what I’m cooking and what I’m wearing. Making breakfast in my PJ’s means no apron. Splattering grease for dinner, apron on!

  180. Jeanine says:

    I sometimes wear an apron… it just depends on what I’m wearing and what I’m making!

  181. Melanie says:

    Aprons are a necessity when I’m in the kitchen! It usually looks like a bomb went off when my masterpiece is complete so I’ve got to protect my clothes! 🙂

  182. lisa says:

    Definitely am… Mine is a little shabby these days 🙂

  183. Jeanene says:

    Just ‘Liked’ AC Apparel site. Thanks.

  184. Janssen says:

    You are just one of my all-time favorite bloggers. Be glad I don’t live at all near you or I’d be on your doorstep all the time, forcing you to be my friend.

    (I have a SWEET apron that my mom made me a couple of years ago. I always get compliments on it and it has pockets, so I can stick my phone in it and listen to audiobooks while I do mountains of dishes).

  185. Jeanene says:

    I would LOVE one of your aprons, whether I win one or buy one! Are they for sale? Oh, & I love your recipes also. Keep up the good work.

  186. Susan says:

    I almost always wear an apron, in fact a few of mine are getting worn out. I especially like to wear one when doing the dishes too, I like to stay neat and clean underneath.

  187. Tina Reeve says:

    It depends on what I’m making and when. If it’s for a nice family gathering I definitely wear an apron. If it involves tomato sauce or oil, I wear an apron. Just family night dinner, usually not.

  188. Jess says:

    Cost Apparel liked!

  189. Lauren T says:

    I am an apron wearer.. Especially when I eat your Cowboy Dinner 🙂

  190. Jess says:

    I am a social apron-wearing kinda gal. Usually when making a regular ol’ dinner, I forget to put an apron on (until it’s too late. eek) but if I am getting ready for a party it seems I conveniently remember to wear my super-cute-found-on-clearance Anthropology apron. Sometimes if I am wearing white I remember to wear one… sometimes. P.S. I am giddy over your blog. Giddy as in I laugh out loud when you are funny, I anxiously await your next post, annnnnnd usually at least two of the meals I make every week are from this here blog. (Do I get extra points for buttering up the blogger?) wink wink.

  191. Alycia says:

    Everytime I splash dinner on myself while cooking, or spray flour from the mixer I WISH I were an apron wearer! I have two — one makes me look frumpy (and I’m the same age as you, so we are WAY TOO YOUNG to look frumpy!) and the other has 2 of my 3 kids’ handprints on it and I want to preserve its beauty so I never actually wear it! And let me tell ya….I went into marriage not knowing a thing about cooking! And now, all that I cook is YOUR stuff and my family raves about it. Thanks for making me a “kitchen rockstar!”

  194. Janet says:

    Hi Mel,
    Just recently found your blog and have spent hours reading. I have never had an apron but if I had one of yours it would get used. I care for my grandkids full time and have made them aprons but have never made one for myself. They are 3 and 4 and love to help me in the kitchen and grandpa is our official taster (he never complains about his important job!) Keep cookin!!

  195. Camille says:

    I love to wear an apron when I cook!

  200. Amanda Yoder says:

    I don’t usually wear an apron but that’s because I don’t own one and don’t like the flowery patterns–I would like to try wearing one like you are giving away! Even my husband could wear it (he cooks sometimes too!)

  201. Crystalyn Hull says:

    I wear an apron half the time that I cook. Its a must sometimes. I also love your website. You have blessed me and my family hundreds of times and for many years. You save me so much time and then I am to spent time with those people the Lord wants me to. Love, Crystalyn

  202. Amanda says:

    I almost always wear an apron just so I can avoid those little annoying holes that I tend to get from water, etc on the bottom front of my shirt 🙂 Plus, I think aprons are an adorable fashion statement!

  203. tiffany says:

    Definately apron wearer? Reminds me of my Grandma

  204. Jenna says:

    I don’t wear an apron baking or cooing because I don’t own any! I am sure for some baking projects it would be extremely helpful, though. 🙂

  205. Meghan says:

    I’m a special occasion apron wearer. It is typically a weekend morning of baking that brings me to put on an apron. 🙂

  206. Deepa says:

    Im not an apron wearer..but if i win this im def wearing this apron..super cute and fun !!!

  212. Susan says:

    I am not currently an apron wearing chef because I do not have one but I am such a fan of Mel’s Kitchen Cafe I would definitely incorporate wearing an apron to my adventures in cooking! : )

    I wear an apron if I care about the clothes that I am wearing, in other words sometimes on Sunday. I would wear this one more!!!

  230. Maurina says:

    Mel-sometimes I feel like I really know you, even though I don’t personally know you! I always spread the word to others about how amazing your website is because it has made a difference for me and my family! Depends on the day & what my plans are if I wear an apron or not, but if I want to stay clean and am doing a lot, then I wear an apron. 🙂

    liked on facebook!

  234. megan says:

    I always mean to wear an apron but more often than not (okay, almost always) I just forget to. Which means my clothes frequently get dirty and stained. Oh well!

  235. Kim says:

    Mel ~ was going on your site to find a recipe for tonight’s dinner and came across your contest. Would be proud to wear your apron 🙂

  236. elizabeth says:

    When I remember to…. 🙂

  237. Jennifer Ward says:

    There are so many cooking blogs out there and Mel’s is the one I’ve stuck with the most, because she turns me into a ROCKSTAR in the KITCHEN!!! My family loves my cooking since I found your site!!! When my youngest son loves what I have made for dinner he says, “Mom, can I have this for my birday dinner?” He seriously says that every time I cook from Mel’s!! Oh and I desperately NEED this APRON!!! As my family will attest- I am the worlds messiest cook! I have ruined so many shirts!!! I once even DUMPED down the front of me and down the front of the dishwasher, HOT GRAPE
    JELLY!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE your cooking Mel!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

  238. Aleisha says:

    I would definitely wear it when baking, I always end up with flour and sugar everywhere!!

  239. Monica says:

    I just liked ‘At Cost Apparel’ page on fb, too!

  240. Monica says:

    I haven’t worn an apron since Home Ec class in Middle School all those years ago. But considering how many tshirts and work shirts I’ve stained with tomatoes and oil and beet juice and strawberries and the list goes on and on, I have been reconsidering my lack of apron wearing-ness. I’d so love to wear this one!

  241. Erin says:

    I wear an apron in the kitchen and while I’m cleaning, and have been known to wear one while mowing the lawn. Love my aprons!

  242. Alexis says:

    Love aprons! Never remember to put one on unless I am doing a full day of kitchen prep/cooking. Off to like at cost apparel on FB. Thanks for all the inspiration and great recipes.

  243. Jen M says:

    I’m not really an apron wearer, but I really should be! I love your apron, but it should say Mel made me a rockstar! ‘Cause your recipes are what make me look like I’m a good cook. 😉 Thanks for being awesome!

  248. Joey W. says:

  249. Kelli says:

    I don’t wear an apron, but I probably should. Especially when I make a dish using tomato sauce. Love the apron design!

  250. Valerie says:

    I love aprons – they are the perfect accessory! Keep my clothes clean when I cook and when I eat! I have one for each day of the week. I would love one of yours the best I think since I love your food.

  251. Amy G. says:

    I’ve been wearing aprons more and more because my pregnant belly sticks out and I always seem to be getting something on it!

  252. Erin says:

    If I am using flour or rolling anything out, I always wear an apron. Or if I am wearing clothes I care about. Or if it’s going to be a big day in the kitchen.

  253. Jan R says:

    I would wear one if I had one…PLEASE!

  254. CJ Pillow says:

  256. Kelly says:

    I liked their facebook page.

  257. Jen says:

    Growing up, none of the women in my family wore aprons. When I moved out on my own and started cooking on my own, I don’t know HOW that was ever possible! I own a gazillion aprons, even was gifted two homemade “frilly 50’s style” aprons last Christmas b/c I love them so much. BUT— what would be even better? An apron with YOUR logo on it, of course!
    My husband knows you (and your recipes) by first name now. Every time I cook a new stellar recipe of yours, I’m like “this is another of Mel’s recipes.”
    Bizarre note: I had mentioned to my neighbor that I was CRAVING chewy chocolate chip cookies while pregnant and she brought over a nice tray of cookie bars that were FABULOUS. And she included the recipe with it so my husband could make them himself. Needless to say, I wasn’t *too* shocked to see that it was ONE OF YOURS! You’re just THAT awesome. 🙂 (and, I’ve made that recipe twice since then— and will be again by the time I deliver in December, I’m sure!!!)

  258. Kelly says:

    I love the apron! I only wear one when I’m cooking something messy.

  259. I don’t wear them for making dinner, but I do if it’s a bigger-than-dinner project, like canning or baking day or something. Love these aprons!

  260. Kim T says:

    Liked the FB page! and Mel–your recipes have made me a rockstar in the kitchen! Would love to show that off! 🙂

  261. Leslie says:

    I also liked that Facebook page! OOOOOOHHH Pick Me!

  262. Leslie says:

    I am an apron wearer, but only when I have nicer clothes on (like Sundays). Most of the time I actually don’t wear one….I think it’s cause I need some more!

  263. Emily says:

    I need to wear an apron more often!
    Mel- I am so in love with your blog! I tell everyone about it- it has made my life so much easier! It has taken so much stress out of the kitchen for me! THANK YOU!

  266. Tommie Bennett says:

    I don’t wear an apron but I should! I’m always a mess after baking!

  267. Erin says:

    I usually do not wear an apron in the kitchen. Unless I am throwing a party and I’m wearing party clothes. Then I do. However I love aprons and I own a ton of them.

  268. Karin B says:

    I have actually been thinking about buying an apron. Please save me the money. 😉

  269. laura vautour says:

    I usually wear an apron … learned the hard way that it’s best to take a few seconds & prevent “wearing” my work!

  270. Katrina says:

    I am not an apron wearer, but I should be. I’m always a mess! I need to get into the habit of wearing them, and perhaps obtaining some. 😉

  271. Amy Weaver says:

    Sometimes I wear an apron and sometimes I do not. It depends on what I am cooking and what I am wearing. Although now that I have a darling apron made for me by THE Aunt Marilyn, I wear one a lot more often!

  272. Aubrey Dokos says:

    I ALWAYS wear an apron because I am the world’s messiest cook, guaranteed! Plus, I just feel cuter and more official when I wear one. Basically, I NEED one of your awesome aprons because your recipes seriously do make me feel like a kitchen rock star!

  273. Debbie says:

    I wear an apron when I am frying something.

  274. Denise Heaton says:

    I always wear an apron. I am a messy cook!!! A cook can never have too many aprons!!! They are really cute and it would match my new kitchen. I love your site and I “liked” on the site of “At Cost Apparel”. Thanks for the chance to win.

  275. Barbi Jensen says:

    I never think to wear my apron, but I do have a super cute one. It would be great to have two super cute aprons! 🙂

  279. Sam says:

    I always wear an apron when am in the kitchen. Its because my kitchen counter and sink is little higher than what I wanted which makes it difficult to do anything without an apron.
    Those aprons are so lovely and I know it really looks good on me…;-)

    Greetings, Mel,

    I love to wear an apron when I am cooking! It makes me feel so very special. It also helps me to remember my Grandmother who was a phenomenal cook.

  284. Kira says:

    How cute! It depends on what I am making if I wear an apron…. And often, I should wear one when I don’t to avoid the mess I make!

  285. Janeen E says:

    Love your food and the apron! I wear an apron about half the time.

  286. Anne says:

    I “liked” At Cost Apparel. Thanks for the fun giveaway! Love your blog and your food 🙂

  293. Susan from WA says:

  295. Abigail says:

    My 3 1/2 year old daughter likes to help me cook in the kitchen, so I have started wearing my apron more often. 🙂 I love to cook, I love your blog, and I would love to have an apron that says you think I’m a rockstar. It would be basically amazing.

  296. Ali Flegal says:

    Even if I don’t win, my husband is buying me one for Christmas. If I win, will you sign mine?! 😉 Truth be told, I don’t own an apron. I’m pretty disgusting by the time bedtime rolls around!

  297. Brooke P. says:

    I ALWAYS wear an apron and the funny thing is I wear one that I sewed myself when I was ten years old. As you can imagine it is getting pretty worn and I could really use a new one. I am often found running my kids all around town still in my apron!!

  298. Shelly says:

    I wear an apron every Sunday. I’ve had to change too many times right before church because dinner ended up on me instead of in the crockpot! I absolutely love all your recipes and your cooking style. Thank you for so generously sharing such great recipes and tips.

  299. Jackie Gonzales says:

    I like to wear aprons for big jobs…or anything working with tomatoes 🙂

  302. Rayanne says:

    I love your site and would be proud to wear that apron. I’m not usually an apron wearing girl, but should be as my shirt us usually covered in four.

  303. Liz says:

    An excellent idea. I never wear one, but really should as I ruin lots of clothes and can’t get them clean. Would love this cute apron. Thanks Mel.

  304. Ann says:

    I almost never wear an apron, but I always wish I did! Seriously, I have ruined so many shirts from splatter/drips/spills that it’s embarrassing. Maybe if I had a cute apron that I was excited about I would remember to put it on!;)

  305. rachel garber says:

    I wear an apron on very special occasions when I’m making “fancy foods” and spend a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I’d wear this one everyday!

    Sometimes. Thanks for sharing all your tasty recipes!

  307. Teresa R. says:

    I seldom wear an apron, mainly because I forget to put one on.

  311. jenna k says:

    I always wear an apron! My grandma started that trend and now I continue it!

  312. Audrey Mueller says:

    I sometimes wear an apron when I cook. I know I should wear one all the time because I keep spilling stuff on myself and after the fact I always think, “Why wasn’t I wearing an apron!!?!” Always.

  313. Emily F says:

    I usually don’t remember to wear an apron until after I’m done cooking and need to change my clothes!

  314. bluebaker says:

    I love wearing aprons- its nostalgic and makes me feel more like those 50’s TV moms who do everything right!. My mom and gramma always wore one, and we saved a few of their vintage ones.

  321. Lori says:

    I do not wear an apron because I don’t have one! But I should because I always end up having to change my shirt after fiddling around in the kitchen!

  357. Chris says:

    I rarely wear an apron and then get upset with myself for not doing so when I fold the laundry and see all the stains on my favorite shirts from not wearing one. I do wear one from time to time mostly if I’m baking lots of cookies. These are super cute, by the way, thanks for the opportunity to win one!

    I often forget to wear an apron but ever since I got a cute, flirty one with cherries on it two years ago for christmas, I am better at remembering. 🙂

  360. Michelle watabe says:

    Cute! Totally depends on how messy it is and how much I like the clothes I’m wearing!

  361. Rachel says:

    I usually don’t wear an apron, but should! I have way too many shirts that have been ruined by grease 🙂 I love your site…. I don’t bake often enough, but surprised my husband with some fresh baked French bread, so I think it’s safe to say he loves your site as well 😉

  362. Liz B. says:

    I don’t sew (but I cook/bake!), but took 15 hours to make a cute apron one time. I love it, it’s SO cute. And I never wear it. I just forget to put it on. Or, I never have cute clothes on when I cook so why bother wearing an apron, ha! Either way, I’m not much of an apron wearer. Fun give-away though!

    Hi, Mel! Been meaning to write you for weeks actually. Seriously love your blog and your humor. I’m a single mom (my son is 2) and discovered my passion for cooking about 3 years ago but don’t have much time for it – it’s literally taken me half a day just to get these few words down due to toddler demands every 5 seconds lol. ANYWAY, your “magic sauce” (sauce from the Thai Quinoa Salad)..I’m sorry, I have renamed it “magic sauce”…hope that’s ok…has helped me out a lot. I drizzle it on many things to get my insanely finicky toddler to eat. So, THANKS! I don’t cook with an apron cause I don’t have one but I’d LOVE to have one and yours looks pretty cool!

  372. Jaqui says:

    If i know it’s gonna be messy I wear an apron, otherwise I skip that step.

    Hi, Mel,

  385. Susanne Nielsen says:

  394. Nicole says:

    I love wearing aprons…when I remember. I’ve gotten odd grease spots on far too many shirts because of my forgetfulness/neglect.

  395. Maureen says:

    Depends, if I remember. Often times I just jump in and by the time I realize it, it’s too late.

    Oh, my goodness!!! I WANT ONE!!! I have an apron I should wear, but I always forget, and then I think about it after the fact (like when I have tomato sauce dripping all over my shirt from canning salsa. . . figures. . .). If I never win another giveaway on your website, I WANT TO WIN THIS ONE!!!! Thanks, Mel, for everything!!

    Amy

  401. Hayley says:

    Ps- I liked them on Fb.

  402. Hayley says:

    I mostly wear aprons when I have nice clothing on… which sadly, isn’t as often as I might like. T-shirts and jeans are just safer with babies around. Love you design though. You are by far my favorite food blogger.

  403. Ashlee says:

    I love aprons…when I have a nice shirt on. Which is 13% of the time.

  404. Betsy says:

    I don’t wear one as often as I should. I’m well into my 50’s but I can remember my grandmother always wearing one when she cooked. I guess with paper towels, we don’t need a place to wipe our hands like she did!

  405. Patricia Pichany-Mapley says:

    I come from a long line of apron wearers. I remember my Grandma, two Aunts, Mom and Big Sister all wearing aprons. My daughter and I both wear aprons and the two granddaughters ( ages 6 & 9) love wearing aprons when they help in the kitchen.
    Thanks for this opportunity~~I love Mel’s Kitchen Café!

  410. Annie says:

    I wear one about 10% of the time… But I usually regret it. I need a cute one like this to start saving all of my clothes!!

  411. Kate says:

    I should wear aprons more than I do… too many stained clothes 🙂

  412. Melissa says:

    I like At Cost Apparel on Facebook

  413. Melissa says:

    I am a big fan of aprons!

  414. Ragan says:

    And if family does complain about what we will be having for dinner, it would be nice to be able to tap the wording on the apron you are giving away in a significant way and then silently turn back to my pots and pans.

  415. I have one basic, horribly stained white chef’s apron that was signed by a celebrity chef with whom I took a cooking class. Sometimes I don’t wear it, but when I do it means I’m really serious about what I’m cooking. I actually feel like a better cook when I’m wearing it.

  416. Alex says:

    I don’t currently wear an apron while cooking, but I sure need to start!! I would love to win this!

  417. Alex says:

    I liked the page on fb! What a fun contest!

  418. Ragan says:

    I’m new to your website. So far I love it. I defiantly wear an apron. After years of my family complaining about the food I prepared (and it was very good food) I just quit. Recently I decided to pic up the spatula again and this time cook for me! If my family likes it great, if they don’t, it’s just more delicious home cooked food for me. Thank you for helping me fall in love with cooking again.

  419. Heather says:

    I don’t wear one very often- I always forget till it is too late.

  420. Catherine Rich says:

    Oh! I need one of those! I tell people about you and your site all the time and most of my neighborhood and ward love you too. Crossing my fingers that I win!

  423. Libby says:

    My four year old got an embroidered Cars movie apron with her name on it as a gift from grandma. That’s the only apron in our household. I wear it 75% of the time, always when cooking with anything greasy, splattery or with tomatoes. She’s always telling me to get my own.

  424. Jennifer C. says:

    I am not an apron wearer, probably because I don’t own one–yet!

  425. Katie says:

    Just liked At Cost Apparel

  426. Amanda Z says:

    I liked Cost Apparel’s page! Thanks for the giveaway

  427. Katie says:

    I usually only wear one when I’m decorating a fondant cake…though I wished I wore it more often to save clothing 🙂

  428. Amanda Z says:

    I have never worn an apron before, but I really want one! As a fairly “green” cook, I just had not gotten around to buying one yet, but thanks to this blog, I cook all the time now!! 🙂

  429. Aimee says:

    I’ve never owned an apron, but I always think that it is silly that I don’t. My shirts and dresses are always showing signs of the latest Mel’s Kitchen Cafe recipe I’ve tried!

  430. Lena clary says:

    I wear an apron, especially if the recipe calls for flour!

  431. LB says:

    I put on an apron right after I hear the splatter of bacon hitting the pan. But if I get an apron this cute, I will wear one more often, promise!

  432. Janet T says:

    I wear an apron when I’m feeling ‘fancy’!

  433. Laurie says:

    I usually don’t wear an apron, but when my kiddos cook/bake with me then I do. They each have their own aprons and they INSIST that I wear mine with them. But mine is just a plain khaki color; definitely not as cute as Mel’s Kitchen Rockstar apron 😉

  434. Amanda c says:

    I’m not, but I never regret wearing one!

  435. Jamie in GA says:

    Mel, I LOVE the aprons! I am not an apron wearer in the kitchen but I’ve always wanted to be! I usually walk around with a towel on my shoulder. 😉 Mel, you have changed my life! I have always enjoyed cooking but I never had confidence in the kitchen..you changed that! Thank you! By the way, I have a very similar necklace with my kids’ names on it! 🙂

  436. Marci says:

    No I don’t wear an apron, but just commented yesterday that I need one. I recently bought aprons for my 2.5 year old twins and should have also bought one for myself!

  437. Natalie says:

    I don’t wear an apron. In fact, I don’t even own one. As messy as I am in the kitchen, I should be required to wear one for all meals I prepare! Love your website and I would love to win one of these. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  438. Hailey says:

    I like to wear aprons when I actually remember to put one on! 😛

  439. Heidi says:

    I liked their Facebook page – they do deserve a few new friends – tell them thanks for sponsoring these adorable aprons!!!

  440. Laura says:

    I wear one when I remember to put it on. Usually I’m in too much of a rush to remember, and then I’ve got grease and sauce stains all over my shirt! Thanks for the chance to win!

  441. Amy says:

    I’m an apron wearer when I remember to put one on – especially Sunday evenings, but then I forget I put it on and end up wearing it all day. But if I’m still in my workout clothes when I’m cooking, I never wear an apron.

  442. Heidi says:

    I love wearing an apron – I feel so official in one.

  443. Amy says:

  448. I wear it most of the time but sometimes i dont cause I am lazy

  449. Susan P says:

    I LOVE your aprons! so clever. I SHOULD always wear an apron, but I usually put one on after I’ve already spilled on myself 🙂

  450. Sam M says:

    I don’t usually wear an apron, but I probably should since I usually get stuff all over me!

  451. Kim O says:

    I wear an apron less than half the time….but this would be great motivation! 🙂
    Enjoy your site and recipes!

  452. Allison says:

    I liked AC on facebook

  453. Allison says:

    I wear one when I’m baking because I always make a mess, when I cook its hit or miss

  454. Cara says:

    I wear an apron about half the time but am messy enough that it should be all the time.

  455. Brad Kokocinski says:

    Non-apron wearer. (Because I don’t have one.) Stumbled upon your website a little over a year ago and I have been using it ever since. I actually came to the website today to get the meatball recipe. Fingers crossed they turn out. Thanks for your website, perfect for a cooking dad and his family.

  456. KarenK says:

    I don’t wear an apron when making breakfast or lunch but will when baking or preparing a big supper. Cool apron!

  457. Lisa says:

    I’m usually not, but I’m messy enough that I should be!!

  458. Cheryl Newton says:

    I want to be an apron-wearer. I bought some fabric and a pattern but that’s as far as I’ve gotten. If I win one from you, Mel, it will be my 1st ever apron!

  459. Heather says:

    I liked At Cost on FB (Heather Babcock)

    I “liked” At Cost on FB!

  464. Natalie says:

    I don’t if I’m cooking, but if I’m baking an apron is a must!!

  465. Erin says:

    I usually do not wear an apron but I probably should, I get a little messy sometimes:)

  466. Kendra L. says:

    When I was a kid living at my parents, all 8 of us kids had an apron to wear. Actually they were “House dresses” (We sisters liked to catch my brothers on camera wearing theirs). But since living away from home, I never have worn one. Simply because I haven’t put it on the list. But if I had one, I would wear it!

  467. Meg says:

    I do wear an apron when I cook. Although my husband has commented it is not the most attractive apron I believe the quote is “it looks like I slaughtered a goat with it” but hey I love it and it keeps the clothes tidy.

  468. Rae Trigg says:

    I forgot to add, I have gone and liked Cost Apparel’s Facebook page.

  469. Rae Trigg says:

    I don’t always wear an apron, but sometimes do if I’m wearing something that I want to keep clean. I usually do wear one when I’m running the kitchen for the church dinner I organize.

  470. Julie says:

    I never ever wear an apron but if I win this I will try to start.

  471. Sheila Bailey says:

    I usually don’t wear an apron unless I’m cooking something that will stain-such as beets or tomatoes.

  472. Laura says:

    I also went to At Cost Apparel and gave it a “Like”. Thanks for the offer!

  473. Laura says:

    I would wear it while cooking. You can’t beat a great apron with inspiration!

  474. Lauren says:

    I don’t currently wear an apron, but would love to start–then I would have somewhere to wipe my hands other then on my work pants/dress/etc. I am a HUGE fan of all of your meals, and would be honored to wear an apron with your name on it.

  475. Cameron says:

    I am not an apron wearer usually (even though I own 3) only because I’m too lazy to walk the 6 feet over to the hook on which they are hanging and/or because I already have food on my clothes courtesy of my toddlers. But I’d PROUDLY rock yours! Thanks!

  476. Christina says:

    I love the apron! I don’t wear an apron when I cook but that’s probably because I don’t own an apron.

  477. Shanna says:

    Depends on what I am cooking. I almost always wear one when preparing something to bake. Love your site and use it all the time.

  478. McKinlay says:

    I mostly do not wear and apron but sometimes I do. When I do I’m always glad cause they’re cute and helpful!

    I liked At Cost Apparel!

  493. Beth Wadsworth says:

    I don’t wear an apron because I don’t own one. I would definitely wear YOURS! Tonight at dinner we had a meal from my freezer club that my husband didn’t love at all. He would eat cardboard normally. I told him it just made me sad because it is so nice to eat something that you didn’t have to prepare yourself. He said “They can’t all cook as good as you.” Thanks for making me a Rockstar in my kitchen 🙂

  494. Claire says:

    While I am not an apron wearer I would gift this to my sis in law who thinks she can’t cook and so I am always encouraging to cook and to check out your website for ideas, of which she has had a couple of successes.

  495. Barbara says:

    Posted on Facebook as well, and happy to learn I can purchase also, maybe fun Christmas gifts. Thank you.

  496. Tricia says:

    Mel, since retiring I find myself in the kitchen more. I would love an apron like this to wear while I cook. BTW, love your recipes.

    I like the idea of aprons. Maybe if I had cute enough one i’d wear it more often 🙂

  498. Jessica says:

    I usually wear an apron, but I have ugly ones. I’m not sure where I accumulated them, but one even has bears and hearts on it. Seriously! I would love a new apron. I love your site and have almost all of your recipes printed and whenever I make a good recipe that people ask for, it’s always yours! Thank you for all your hard work!

  499. Barbara says:

    I love to wear aprons while I’m cooking, otherwise I have to change clothes when I’m done.

  500. Ariane says:

    In this house, you are THE kitchen rock star and I am in training through your guidance:-) Thanks for all the great recipes, I’ve learned so much about what works and what doesn’t. I even make bread weekly, my roommates in college would be totally shocked.!!!

  501. Ginger Crook says:

    yes! I need a new apron! How exciting! I usually just wear my apron while I make cookies or bread or anything that involves a lot of flour.

  507. Jess Reed says:

    Mel, I totaly wear a apron when I am rocking out in the kitchen. You, without knowing it, have become my kitchen “guru” and have inspired me to try to cook things for my family I never would’ve tried before – which is why I wear an apron, because I tend to get messy!

  508. kristen says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel and I could really use an apron!!

  509. Jen says:

    I have a love/hate relationship with aprons. I never remember to put them on until I’ve made the first food splatter 🙂 but they are definitely a wardrobe saver! I love your apron! 🙂

  510. Soonhee says:

    I wear an apron when I’m frying stuff and on thanksgiving and Christmas. But I’d wear one of these every time I cook one of your recipes, which is almost every day!

  541. Pam says:

    I “liked” At Cost Apparel on Facebook! (Pam Krick Gurganus)

  542. Rebecca B says:

    I wear aprons when I’m not in a rush. Then I’m sorry if I don’t because I have to scrub spots out of my clothes. I follow several blogs, but yours is the first one I always check. We enjoy your recipe for banana blueberry muffins most weekends. Thank you for sharing your love of good food

  543. Pam says:

    I’m not an apron-wearer, but not that I shouldn’t be! Only because I don’t have one! 🙂

  544. LaRae says:

    I recently have started wearing aprons again:) Thanks Mel I love your website!

    I also liked At Cost Apparel’s website!

  546. Mary says:

    I only wear an apron when my roommate is home 😀 and hoping that I can nudge her to try whatever it is I’m making (since aprons make things more legit). These aprons are adorable Mel, thanks for the great chance!

  547. Macy Gruber says:

    I have 5 super cute aprons but only seem to wear them when I bake or else I would get flour all over myself. I am obsessed with your blog! Everything I make of yours gets great reviews from my husband, friends, and family 🙂

  548. Ali Jones says:

    I don’t typically wear an apron because I don’t have one! I’d love to win one! Pick me!!

  549. Melissa says:

    I should wear an apron! But I am often trying to get dinner on the table so fast that I forget to get the apron on. Thanks to many of your excellent recipes, at least dinner tastes great!

  550. Anna says:

    I only wear aprons when I think the clothes I’m wearing are good enought not to get dirt on them, which isn’t very often. Or I remember I even have one. 🙂

  551. Aurelia says:

    I dream of being an apron-wearing cook, but just haven’t found one or made one that i like.

  552. Tanya says:

    Yup! We love aprons! Last year for Christmas I made an apron for each of my kids with their names on them so when they’re helping with dinner (we rotate turns) they get to wear their own apron. I even made one for my hubby with handprints of each kid. I’d love a MKC apron since my kids think you’re my friend! Lol! 🙂

  553. Christy c says:

    I rarely wear an apron.

  554. Katie says:

    I love wearing an apron while cooking. It’s like a portable towel (and since it seems like I’m always washing my hands while cooking, that is very convenient). Plus it’s nice not to worry about getting flour/spaghetti sauce/oil/etc. all over myself 🙂

  555. Kari Flom says:

    Love love love aprons. My favorite apron was made for me by my mother in law. The fabric is 1950s housewives doing chores: stiring frosting, using the hand held mixer and ironing all while wearing their heels, house dresses and pearls. My other favorite apron is a ‘flirty’ apron brand that is black with pink ruffles. Don’t feel like I’m cooking unless I’m wearing an apron.

  556. Lisa says:

    I am since I’ve ruined so many clothes with cooking stains! I would love this apron 🙂

  557. Cyd says:

    I love me a good apron and have quite a few (you can never have too many!), but wish I would slow down more often to actually use them!!!

  558. Andrea says:

    Great aprons! I don’t normally wear one, but sometimes do for holiday meal preparation! 🙂

  559. Tamara Graham says:

  564. Terri says:

    Yeppers…I always wear an apron…I’m a messy cook! 😉

  565. Amanda says:

    I almost always wear an apron in the kitchen. I’ve ruined WAY too many shirts splattering something on them while cooking. I would LOVE to have one of yours! 🙂

  566. Natalie says:

    I wear an apron because it makes me feel cute even when I’m wearing grungy clothes that I wouldn’t care at all if I spilled on 🙂

  567. Suzanne says:

    Wear an apron about 1/3 of the time, depending on Sunday after church clothes or really messy stuff:)

  568. Michele says:

    Older and wiser, I have recently decided that I should wear an apron as I am a wonderful but messy cook.

  569. Michelle Barile says:

    Ok..I did it…I LIKED the At Cost Apparel fb page. Good luck to me!

  570. I’ve also liked At Cost Apparel on facebook 🙂

  571. My boyfriend laughs at me, but I do sport an apron when I cook. It makes me feel like I’m the master of my kitchen and it’s fun! I’ve started accumulating them for different occasions, so fun.

  572. Natalie says:

    I do wear an apron, usually. I can’t find mine right now because I recently moved.

    I NEVER wear an apron, but this apron…I would wear this thing out for a date night out on the town, with some cute hot pink leggings! Love your blog!

  576. Michelle Barile says:

    I am an apron wearer because, unlike my sloppy-less sister, I make a mess as I whirl around the kitchen! Thanks!

  577. Jenny Lay says:

    I “liked”the at cost apparel page.

  578. Kaylyn says:

    I wear an apron maybe half of the time I am cooking and am always glad when I do. But I should definitely wear one more. Especially now being pregnant, my belly is always getting in the way and getting something spilled on it. 🙂

  579. Lindsay G says:

    I also liked At Cost Apparel’s facebook page! 🙂

  580. Lindsay G says:

    Mel, I usually do wear an apron. I don’t want grease or flour getting all over me. And since I’m 35 weeks prego I’m prone to get everything and anything on my belly, so I eat with an apron on. It’s like a giant bib! 🙂

  581. Jenny Lay says:

    I usually don’t. Except on Thanksgiving.

  582. Jenny Lay says:

    I usually only wear aprons on big events, like Christmas and Thanksgiving. I probably should wear them more.

  583. Meredith Williams says:

    I don’t wear an apron but mostly because I’ve been too lazy to go out and buy one. So this would be perfect!! 🙂 ps I love, love, love your site! Its my go-to site for recipes!

  584. amanda says:

    Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. It depends on how messy I plan on my creation being or if my kids are involved in the process 🙂

  585. Whitney Tanner says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel on FAcebook!

  586. Whitney Tanner says:

    Who wouldn’t LOVE an apron with your logo and sanction? I probably wear aprons 60% of the time–when I’m still in nice clothes, and when things are about to get messy. Your recipes are honestly the best. I use them all the time!!

  587. Amanda says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel. And thanks to you, I may have found a new supplier for team t-shirts for the Walk to Cure Diabetes. Thanks!

  588. Lisa E says:

    Usually no, but I really should so I can stop staining my shirts! Thanks for the endless delicious recipes! How do you stay so thin when you’re always cooking so much goodness?!?

  589. Barb says:

    I always grab an apron bc I am a messy cook & got tired of ruining my clothes!
    I do not have a beautiful black Mel’s Kitchen Cafe apron though 😉 YET 😉
    Your recipes always make me feel like a kitchen rockstar, Mel! You are my go-to girl!

  590. Amy S. says:

    I’m a sometimes apron wearer. It depends on how nice the clothes I have on are and how messy I think the cooking will get. That apron is super cute!

  591. TrishInFL says:

    I’m the latest FB liker of At Cost Apparel!

  592. Tamara George says:

    I don’t wear an apron, although I should! I’m pretty messy.

  593. Melissa says:

    And At Cost Apparel is liked!

  594. Melissa says:

    For the most part… no, I do not wear aprons. I figure with small children around I’m going to get dirty at some point so just embrace it! And PS, I would love to have Mel’s endorsement to wear while cooking. I’m sure that I would wear it more often just to feel like a kitchen superstar!

  595. I almost always wear an apron unless I am in a rush, and then I regret it.

  596. Lien says:

    Whoa! Accidentally pressed the “notify” button! How do I un-notify?

  597. TrishInFL says:

    I am not an apron wearer, but really should be especially with this cute apron!

  598. Amanda says:

    I am not a wearer of aprons, but the food stains on my clothes say I should be! Would love to start the habit with yours!

  599. Tami R says:

    I don’t currently wear an apron around the kitchen only because I don’t have one! But I would wear one if I had one!

  600. Kim B says:

    I “liked” it!

  601. Lindsey says:

    I love this! I wear a red apron all the time, and it would be fun to mix it up with this one.

  602. Christi says:

    Love aprons! I ruined many a shirt before I realized an apron was the answer to my problems. What a fun apron Mel!

  603. mommar6 says:

    I love wearing my aprons. I could be the world’s messiest cook. And my birthday is OCT 1st. It would be so much fun to win on my special day!

  604. Kim B says:

    I almost always wear an apron…why risk having anything splash on my clothes?

  605. Alisha says:

    I hardly ever wear an apron and have the stained clothes to prove it 😉

  610. Erin says:

    I don’t always wear an apron. I find the times I wear an apron I am less messy and when I think I will be fine and don’t that is when I get messy and wish I had.

  611. I do wear an apron because I make such a mess!!

  612. teasha says:

    I am definitely an apron wearer!

  613. Jennifer says:

    Definitely an apron wearer. Hope I get to wear this one!

  614. Carli Hoopes says:

    I like to remember to put my apron on after I splatter something all over myself!

  615. Nikole says:

    I always wear an apron. Always ! They make me feel girly and domestic.:)

  616. Carly says:

    I should wear an apron more often than I do, I think I just need a cuter apron.
    I’d love to win.

  617. Clare says:

    I’m not, generally because I’m not wearing anything nice enough to cover up.

  618. Jenn W. says:

    I should be an apron-wearer, but I am not. I think that might change if I had one of these!!

  619. Becky D says:

    50/50, but I always regret not putting an apron on!

    I try to remember to wear aprons – especially while baking, as I am messy – but I don’t always do it. I have to be honest there. Super cute apron & great giveaway!

    My laundry bill and pile of ruined shirts says I need to be an apron wearer! Especially as I’m rocking in the kitchen, muppet Swedish Chef style. LOL!

    I wear an apron when I remember to – they really save my clothes from many splatters and spills! I’d love to wear the apron you are giving away – too cute! Love your blog!

  640. Katherine M says:

    I’m not an apron wearer. I long to be one though. I have asked for one for Christmas but It must of fell on deaf ears. I find myself sometimes sticking a kitchen towel in the neck of my shirt. I’m sure I look very attractive that way! 🙂

    I LOVE aprons. Once I put one on, it stays for the rest of the day. I especially love wearing it to the dinner table because I inevitably spill while I eat. I’m also a super messy cook, it’s nice to just cook without any reserve for my clothes. Let the flour fly!!!!

  652. Julie says:

    I didn’t used to, but now my 4-year old loves to cook with me and she always reminds me to wear one and help her put hers on. I love it!

    I wear an apron on Sundays and would love one with your cute logo and what looks to be an adjustable neck!

    I usually wear my reversable apron. One side is for baking (it has rolling pins and measuring cups on it) and the other has a fall motif. Love your site!

  678. Angela Hirschi says:

    No apron because it has my kids handprints on it from 3 years ago and I don’t want to ruin it.

  679. caryn says:

    A sometimes wearer… depends on what I’m cooking

  681. Heather Irvine says:

    I love to wear aprons when I’m making messy food! You can ALWAYS use another one! 🙂 Thanks,Mel!

  682. Jessica says:

    I just discovered your blog about a month ago and I’m so glad I did. I actually fell in love with your Coconut Curry Chicken a while ago, but I didn’t explore your blog until recently. EVERY. SINGLE. RECIPE. I have tried has turned out delicious. We just had your Coconut Curry Soup last night and it was fantastic! I would love to win an apron! I don’t usually wear one when I cook, but I know that I need to based on how many stains I’ve gotten on my shirts! The apron is so cute!

  683. Judy says:

    I don’t wear an apron for everyday cooking, but when I am canning (which seems like it has been every day since the middle of August!!) I wear one since there is so much splatter from tomatoes, apples, pears, grapes… the list goes on and on. I would love a new apron!

  684. Lindsay* says:

    Wearing an apron is a must for me!! I wear one every night. My little boys like to get in on the apron wearing action, too. Thanks for the chance to win! Fingers crossed!

  685. Heather says:

    I am not an apron wearer, but that’s only because I don’t own one! I would definitely wear this one if I won.

  686. Maggie Tennant says:

    I have not found an apron as cute as this!!!! Should I win I will wear it proudly every day I am in the kitchen!!I
    It is about time to cook in vogue!!

  687. Tracy says:

    I actually have been meaning to make my own apron for some time- I think it would come in handy. So I guess technically I’m not an apron wearer but hope to be a convert!!

  688. Shelley says:

    I love aprons! Better they get dirty than me. I’d love to wear one of your aprons. Thanks for sharing your talents!

    I like At Cost Apparel on Facebook.

    Most of the time when I’m cooking, I wear an apron. Not always. It depends on what I’m making. I always wear one when I decorate cakes, though.
    Thanks for the chance to win. They are cute!

    I liked their fb page.

  699. Thesha says:

    It totally depends on what I am making. I wear an apron if I am baking, cooking something that I know will be messy, or when I am working with raw chicken. Most other times I don’t and yes, I have regretted that at times :). Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  700. Johlene says:

    No, I don’t wear and apron and probably should because of the occasional shirt that needs treating after cooking. 😉

  701. Sheri says:

    Both…apron when I remember, but lately I w
    Always forget until its too late!

    Yes, I wear aprons. It reminds me of my special time with my Grandmother. Great memories.

  706. Karen Andrson says:

    After almost “doing in” my favorite t-shirt while frying 3 dozen tacos, I’m shopping for an apron as we speak! I would LOVE to have one of these!

  707. Carol L says:

    Love your site here and so many of your recipes. I love Aprons and if I didn’t wear them all my clothes would be ruined. 🙂

  708. Jessica says:

    I should wear an apron more, I just forget to put one on a lot. You are my go-to site for recipes. I jokingly refer to you as “my good friend Mel” to my family and friends. I am also a mom to five young kiddos and love how family and budget friendly you recipes are! Thanks for making me a rock star in the kitchen!

  709. PJ says:

    I never go in the kitchen without it (an apron).

    I tend to wear a lot of flour on my regular clothes. A new apron would be a great incentive to quit!

  713. Diane Riedel says:

    LOVE the apron, love you, love your site! Also liked “At Cost Apparel” FB page. I always wear aprons in the kitchen…tend to be a messy cook/baker. Aprons are easier to clean than my clothes! Good luck to all who enter, wish we all could win, 🙂

    It depends on what I’m cooking. I do only have one apron though and would love another.

  718. ann says:

    I’m SOMETIMES an apron wearer. But I always SHOULD be, because I’m always a mess.

  719. Annie B says:

    I wear an apron if I’m cooking something messy…or if I’m cooking in my Sunday best 🙂

  720. Amy says:

    I usually wear an apron because I’m a messy baker/cook. I love your site and tell everyone about it.

  721. Kara says:

    I wear an apron all the time. They are the best inventions ever. I have all different lengths and styles. My all time favorite one is the full coverage in the back and front because it allows me to wrestle with my kids even when I’m wearing a skirt and I don’t flash anyone. Win, win.

  722. Lavinia Anderl says:

    I love wearing aprons!

  723. Kristen says:

    I wear an apron when I have nice clothes on.

    I really should wear an apron but, forget most of the time 🙂

  727. Katie says:

    I only have an apron with a snowman on it so I don’t usually wear it, though my husband did the other day while he was helping me can salsa…..shhhh, don’t tell! Love your site and would love this apron!

  728. Holly says:

    Definitely an apron-wearer. Though sometimes I opt for one of my designated “kitchen shirts” – old t-shirts that have grease spots on them from previous kitchen encounters.
    And, Mel, you have definitely improved my repertoire for dinners, sweets, and everything in between! This is my go-to blog – I look here before I look anywhere else when seeking something new.

  731. Brooke F. says:

    I love the idea of an apron, but I always forget to pull it out! I need to hang it right where I’ll see it~!

  732. SARAH says:

    I love a good apron!!

  733. Robin says:

    I only wear an apron when i am decorating a cake, but I’m pretty sure I would give this one to my SIL who swears you are her BFF. We like to tease her quite often about it 🙂

    It’s “liked”!!

  740. tricia mincy says:

    Mel, I haven’t been doing very well with my apron-wearing. BUT I know that my clothes will thank you and me if I win this contest!!!

  741. Esther says:

    I liked At Cost Apparel.

  742. Sara says:

    I definitely wear an apron when I’m baking bread or anything with lots of flour or if I’m wearing white. Otherwise I tend to forget to put it on. But when I remember I’m always so happy about it.

  743. Erin says:

    I wear an apron if I’m doing something that could really do some damage to my clothes…like a huge pot of spaghetti sauce to freeze or frying something. Otherwise I’m too lazy. My little girls on the other hand, LOVE to wear an apron while they help me in the kitchen!!

  744. Jodee says:

    I should wear an apron since I am like a tornado when I cook but a lot of times I don’t remember…I’m having too much fun cooking! I would love one of these aprons though since the majority of the recipes I make are yours!

  745. Esther says:

    I like to wear an apron, but I only have one, so I need another for when the first one is in the wash! 🙂

  746. Jennifer G says:

    Depends on the clothes I have on – good clothes, wear an apron – everyday not so much unless frying.

  750. Deb says:

    I’m an apron-wearer wannabe. I love aprons, but never remember to wear them!

    I am definitely an apron wearer when I cook, and your aprons are cute!

  752. Andreya says:

    I would love to be an apron wearer, but I do not have one so I must claim that I am not. I love these aprons!

  753. Dana says:

    I wear an apron sometimes – i was just about to make a new one, but this would be so fun!

  754. Ashleigh says:

    I sometimes wear my apron, but it’s white and I hate to get it dirty, so I pick and choose when I wear it depending on what I’m making. I realize this rationale doesn’t make sense and frankly sounds a bit crazy. That being said, a black apron would really help!!

  755. April kim says:

    I love them! It depends on my mood if i wear an apron or not, but I would love this, and it would be very appropriate since i mainly use your blog for all my cooking needs!!!

  756. Julia C. says:

    So cute! Truthfully, I do not wear an apron because i don’t own one but have often thought to myself “I need an apron!!”

  758. kensi says:

    I need one of these!!! And I am an apron wearer!!

    I don’t usually wear one. I think I just forget. I usually remember after I splatter something on my shirt. I do believe this cute apron would help me remember before I make a mess of my shirt!

  760. Melissa E says:

    I am an apron wearer while baking but not as often while cooking. I am a messy baker.

  761. Patricialynn says:

    I consider myself an apron wearer who doesn’t happen to currently own an apron – but I would love one!

  766. ChrissieK says:

    I just suggested to my husband that he should get me an apron for my BDay 🙂 …. I get stuff all over me when I cook, I’ve never used one!! (silly and ridiculous!)

  767. Tracey says:

    I really try to remember to wear my apron when I cook! But let’s be honest, I usually forget and end up getting food all over myself! 🙂 I would love your apron! I make so many of your recipes that my family even makes fun of me a little bit for it! 😀

  768. Audra says:

    I am a contant apron wearing gal. I wear them to cook, clean, do art with the kids and feed babies (because hey, they spit). And I even fall into the put-on-an-apron-just-to-carry-a-messy-toddler-from-high-chair-to-bath-tub category. I would totally wear yours. Love your blog! Thanks for cooking real food with real ingredients!

  769. Lisa says:

    You crack me up girl! I wear one every once-in-awhile, when I remember to. My kids have adorable ones made by a friend, I think I am in need of one such as this!

  770. Mimi says:

    I don’t wear aprons always, but a cute one like this might have me rocking them all the time!

    I love to make aprons and give as gifts to those who I know love to cook.
    Cooking is my therapy…….and I love to try new recipes.
    Absolutely love your recipes!

  773. Lynne says:

    Super cute! I like to wear an apron when I bake or when I’m dressed and ready to leave the house. I tend to be a bit messy. 🙂

  774. Heather says:

    I wear one when I remember, and its not filthy too. Whenever I do wear one I think, “Why don’t I wear one of these every time?”

  775. Nancy A. says:

    I need one of these adorable aprons so much! Lately I get what I’m cooking on the front of me and ruin some blouses!! My husband said he thinks I need to start wearing one!!

  776. Lia says:

    Liked at Cost Apparel 🙂

  777. Cyndi says:

    Unfortunately I normally do not wear an apron when I cook. I spent today making your amazing Italian lasagne, and I have one pretty stained shirt! Totally worth it though, the lasagne is to die for.

  778. Lisa says:

    I wear aprons if I am dressed up, entertaining, or cooking with my kids and we all have them on. I truly love your recipes and don’t know what I would cook without your site. Thank you!!

  779. Nancy A. says:

    I have been wanting an apron so badly! I am a messy cook, apparently. Wear what I make lately and could use this apron a lot!!!

  780. Lori says:

    I am an apron wearer, but only during the holidays because I only have one apron and it is christmas themed. I would love an apron for every day.

  781. Kathy says:

    I have visited At Cost Apparel’s on facebook, liked them and left a comment.

  782. Jenny says:

    “Tried” my best to make an apron (by the time I paid for materials and hired a sitter so my neighbor could give me sewing lessons it was a $90 apron!) I would love a Mel apron since I frequently refer to you as ‘my friend Mel’ since you kindly share so many yummy recipes with me. (That’s what friends do, right? Share recipes and aprons!)

  783. Marna S says:

    I LOVE wearing aprons!

  784. Kathy says:

    I love aprons and would LOVE to win this one! Thanks!!

  785. Lia says:

    I wear an apron everyday…all day. Most of my aprons were made by my mom. People usually tease me on the bus stop about my apron, but also comment on how good the aromas are coming from my kitchen (My house is where the bus stops). I’ve even worn my apron at school functions like Thanksgiving meal or Multicultural day.
    Love your website and recipes, I use it all the time.

    I usually wear an apron when baking and cooking, I also use one when washing dishes and giving the dog a bath.

  789. Lindsey says:

    I wear an apron while baking bc I always wipe my hands on my clothes (it’s easier that looking for a towel that my kids probably took)! This way my apron gets messy and not me!

  790. Carrie says:

    I should wear an apron all the time – like upon entering my house – since I can’t be home with my 2 year old for more than 5 minutes without food of some kind being added to my shirt. 🙂

    I have an apron, but I usually forget to wear it. It must not be special enough. 😉

  794. Becca says:

    I’ll wear an apron for my more messy, or splattery (is that a word?), kitchen creations. I should wear an apron more often that I do!

  795. Edna A. says:

    I don’t wear an apron, but I should wear an apron, with all those grease stains on my shirts! But I never learn! 😀

  796. Nicole says:

    I usually try to wear an apron, most the time I forget though.

  797. Andrea says:

    I own several aprons and do manage to put one on when I have on nice clothes, but every time I don’t wear one I regret it. With this darling apron I know I would always remember. Thanks Mel!

  798. Holly says:

    I love aprons. I usually admire all the cute ones at the store, but I’ve never bought one for myself. My sister and I attempted making aprons together, but they ended up half done in my closet. I would love to wear an apron, so I guess now in just need to win one! 🙂 The apron is very cute and everyone who knows me, knows that everything I make is from Mel. Mel, thanks for making me a rock star in the kitchen :)!

  799. Missy says:

  802. Missy says:

    I should wear aprons because, well, I’m a complete mess in the kitchen. I own a couple but rarely wear them because I have them stored in a cupboard up high due to the lack of drawers and space in my kitchen. However, I’ve just decided to put a command hook (love those things!) on the back if my pantry door so I can hang my (hopefully) new Mel’s kitchen cafe apron on it! I don’t think wearing your own logo is tacky at all! You are a rockstar Mel!

  803. Rachel says:

    So I commented over at Cost Apparel. Should I leave my shipping address now? 😉 Thanks a ton for doing this. Super fun!

    I always have my apron on in the kitchen! I am to much of a wrecking ball at 9 months pregnant to not get something on myself! 🙂

  806. Alicia says:

    Just liked At Cost Apparel. Hoping to win! (My 3 girls would be so impressed since we talk about you all the time over dinner as if we’re best buds.)

  807. Melanee says:

    I always wear an apron! Whether I’m cooking, eating, or simply standing in the kitchen I am bound to spill something. It’s just a fact I’ve accepted, so it’s always an apron for me 🙂

  808. Alicia says:

    I wear an apron only if I’m really dressed up and cooking something, but if I win one of THESE, I’ll be an apron-wearing regular! You are my go-to cooking blog.

  809. Liz says:

    I love your recipes, Mel. I should wear an apron while cooking as I always get stuff on me, I will if I win one of yours. Thanks.

    I love to wear an apron and try to wear one each time I’m in the kitchen. Otherwise, my clothes have food stains all over them and that’s no good.

  821. Elizabeth says:

    Yes, I always wear a bib apron in the kitchen because I’m such a klutz and usually wearing a white shirt. I don’t care if it’s a Christmas apron and it’s in the middle of summer. If I like it, I use it anytime. Love your recipes! Thanks for sharing them with us!

  830. Michelle says:

    I don’t usually wear an apron (and I have plenty of stained or lightly stained clothes to prove it). I would love to have an apron from you– Especially since it says “Kitchen Rockstar” — My boys wouldn’t be able to deny my kitchen abilities!!

  834. Melissa says:

    I do both, depending on what I’m wearing, what I’m cooking, and how lazy I’m feeling. Such a cute apron! And I would take anything in which Mel endorses me (however impersonally)!

    Sad as it may be, I do not own an apron but if I did I would totally wear it! It’s my own fault obviously, I could easily purchase one! But, my daughter wears one when she helps me cook 🙂
