200th Post & CSN Giveaway!


Contest is now closed.

Okay, so this is actually the 201st post. I messed up. That's a lot of recipes though!  I remember thinking at the beginning that I had about 100 recipes or so that I could feature.  Well, because of all of you, I have found hundreds more recipes that I can't wait to try. 


My original goal was to have this blog be about only recipes but I"m all about free stuff, so like a lot of bloggers out there, CSN contacted me to do a giveaway. I love the idea of giving one of my readers a chance to peruse their 200 + stores and pick out something they need.  They have offered me a $40 gift card to let someone shop away!  I would have a hard time choosing as I love so many of their items. 


I LOVE online shopping! It's so much quicker and easier for busy people.  They have a huge variety of items, you can find almost everything.  Seriously.


As a food blogger, I am always on the lookout to improve my kitchen items and the kitchen itself!  My newest desire is to get lights under my cabinets.  I have a small kitchen and it just seems that I am always wanting more light! Check out their awesome section for lights! I was really impressed with their awesome lights section! I also am constantly wanting new pans and bakeware. 


I so want a new bundt pan and this is on sale for a good price!!



I also totally need some new pans!  They really have a lot to choose from!


So stop on over to CSN and do some online shopping! 


Leave a comment and let me know what you would love to buy!  I love to hear what other people like!  I will pick a winner for the $40 gift card next Monday the 19th.  Make sure I have an email or a link to your blog so I can get a hold of you if you win!

  1. Congrats on 200...and 1!

    The picture of the bundt pan reminded me that I still don't have one of those and I'd really like to get one. So I'd buy that if I won : )

  11. Hey, Debbi! Congrats on your 201st post! I'll be there soon. I'm at 148 now. Not all recipes though! Very impressive that you have that many recipes!

    I love CSN Stores! They have everything!
    I need a rug for Grace's playroom. So, that's probably what I would put the gift certificate towards. I like the Olive Kids Tea Party rug. So girly!

    If I were to get something for myself, it'd soooo be a kitchen item! :)

  38. I would probably look at food processors but since my kitchen is so small right now, I'd end up buying one of the dog beds that is heated. Our husky mix, who has chewed up 6-8 dog beds in less than a year, has hip dysplasia and would probably LOVE a heated bed (that he wouldn't be left alone with so he can't chew it). rtpalmieri at gmail dot com

  39. I'd have to get a pasta maker or a ravioli maker! Maybe both!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would buy myself a mini muffin pan and some spatulas. I've never owned a mini muffin pan (always on my gift idea list, but never gets bought) and i'm always hunting for a "favorite" spatula when baking.
