Giveaway: $50 Williams-Sonoma Gift Card

This giveaway is now closed! Thank you all for participating!


I am so, so, so excited! This week I am featuring my very first giveaway!!

I have to admit, I think I am more skip-up-and-down excited about this giveaway than I think anyone else could be.

Jason & I - "Happy Skipping"

Could this gift card be the harbinger of devastatingly delicious treats?

Could it inspire a crafty cook into developing a rescue plan for all of the abandoned taste buds in the world?

Could it stop the advance of a BBQ grilling beast with its glorious shiny wonder?

As you can see, the possibilities are endless. And my mind has tirelessly looped in circles as I dreamed up all of the sweet, savory, delicious foods that this card could wondrously manifest into someday.

The possibilities of new cool gadgets and kitchen utensils from Williams-Sonoma alone have me captivated.

One of my favorites is the new iSi Twist ‘n Sparkle carbonation system = instant effervescence to your favorite drinks! So cool!

And I definitely could not resist some super cool Star Wars cookie cutters and Storm Trooper / Darth Vader Spatulas!!

So much cool Williams-Sonoma stuff…woohoo!

On another note, in one week I am celebrating a very mundane, non-milestone sort of birthday. So, of course this week I have been perusing through my Williams-Sonoma magazines and picking out my favorite items for my imaginary “would-love-to-have” list. (what can I say…I love to window shop, online browse, and magazine flip for cool kitchen stuff). So…HINT…HINTHINT…if any of my family members are out there and at a loss what to get this food blogger: There might be a clue in the heading of this post. :)

And the winner is…Eliana! Congratulations Eliana!! Thank you to everyone who participated. Keep checking back for yummy food and new giveaways coming soon!!

    If I win, I would LOVE to have the Cuisinart Elite Die-Cast Mini Prep! I can just see myself making all sorts of fresh sauces with this gadget! It would also cut down my prep times, i.e,. chopping onions, etc.

    I “liked” this blog on Facebook and I’m also a Twitter follower now! :)

  2. I am a new follower – I love your blog! This is a hard decision. I would either use the gift card towards the 12″ Le Creuset fry pan (because I’ve always wanted one) or I would get the Hario coffee drip pot. I read an article about the Hario pots, and it would be fun to try! I also “liked” you on facebook. Thank you for the chance to win!

  3. Hmm, if I were able to stay practical, then I would go with the silicone spoons and a mini-muffin or pastry tin. If I wee impractical, well the sky’s the limit!

  4. I’m following you on twitter!

  5. I just RT’ed the contest on twitter!

  16. Becky M says:

    Congruatulations on your first give away! Williams-Sonoma is a great choice and it’s so hard to choose… Maybe two things: The Ebelskivers Cookbok and a Microplane Rasp Grater. Or, $50 toward another Wusthof Classic knife.

  31. Happy early birthday, Megan! Let’s see, I would love to have a Kitchenaid mixer… That’s all I can think of at the moment, but I’ve always wanted one! Thanks for having this great giveaway.

  32. Michelle Huwe says:

    I have never bought anything from Williams- Sonoma. . .which looks to be a total fail on my part. I would love to try any of their gadgets. . .but I’m in desperate need of a legit rolling pin.
    Indeed, I am a fan!

  33. What an awesome giveaway!
    I “would-love-to-have” some silicon muffin tins! I actually really need them but I am too lazy to go to the store and buy some. 😉
    This would give me quite a great excuse.

  34. I’m following you! (as creepy as that sounds..)

  35. I “like” you on Facebook! Wonderful photos!

  36. Diana says:

    I thought Williams-Sonoma would be rather expensive, but I am impressed with their prices for the Cuisinart Elite Die-Cast Mini Prep, 4-Cup. It is under $50 and better priced at Williams-Sonoma than other places. They also have some very unique exclusive items, like the Dexas Flexi Cutting boards. I better stop looking now or I might fill up this blog.

  37. Angie Martinez says:

    I would like the baby food maker! But if I won I’d probably go for a set of knives.

    Mmmmm….Williams Sonoma.

  62. No, I’m pretty skip-up-and-down excited about this–especially if I WIN! My son would flip over the star wars cookie cutters!

  76. chellie S says:

    too many choices! I’d love a mandoline, I can always use kitchen towels and napkins. We only use cloth napkins, plus I love them for a prop when I take food pics. And that carbonation thing looks awesome!

  82. Becky K. says:

    Oh gosh… if I could choose anything… I don’t know! I could probably wander around that store for hours, looking at all their fun gadgets. I’d love that Emile Henry ruffled pie pan, or a tart pan, or a Madeleine pan, or a doughnut pan (didn’t see one online but they must have one!)… Or a crepe pan! Or an ice cream maker!
