500th post- Favorite Things Giveaway

So, believe it or not, my last post officially marked my 500th post. 500 times I have sat down with my laptop, opened a "new post" tab, and put my fingers to work. 500 times I've gone in the kitchen to cook up a new recipe. 500 new recipes, 500 back stories, over 500 pictures. I can't believe it. And really, I can't believe how much support you all give me. This blog started off with 2 readers and has grown into something I am so proud of that truly words can't even describe. Every time I get a comment or an e-mail or a facebook message from you it makes my day. I blog for me, but without YOU it just wouldn't be the same. So thank you, from the bottom of heart, for reading the past 500 posts, for sticking around, and for turning this blog into so much more than I ever hoped it would be.

But now.... the moment you've all been waiting for... the BIG giveaway. If you follow my facebook fan page you had the chance to enter a few giveaways there at the beginning of the year. But this is the FIRST EVER giveaway here on the blog, so I figured I better make it a good one.

Have you ever seen Oprah's Favorite Things? You know, where she gives away a car, and a house, and a country? Well, this isn't going to be quite like that, but it is going to be my much less expensive favorite things! Unless Oprah wants to jump in and sponsor a bigger giveaway, I'm always up for that! But assuming she doesn't, here's what's up for grabs.

The winner of this giveaway wins ALL of the following items. Each of these items has helped me to create many of the past 500 posts. Some are new favorites, some are old steadies, but none the less, all are well loved.

(Disclaimer: All items are coming from Amazon.com, and some are limited quantity, so if for some reason one is sold out by the time the giveaway ends, I will replace it with a very similar item.)

Joseph Joseph Scoop Colander- this was a Christmas gift this year and I use it all.the.time to scoop pasta out of boiling water, remove potatoes from a pan, etc. Very useful.

A Wusthof pairing knife. Honestly, I've been drooling over Wusthof knives for some time now and just started my collection, so let me help you start yours.

Wilton 3 tiered stacking cooling racks- I use these daily. I use them for baking, I also use them when entertaining to create makeshift shelves in my fridge. They work beautifully for making extra shelves when you have a lot going on in the kitchen. And they unstack too.

My microplane- I use this constantly to zest lemons, grate cheese, etc. 

My doughnut pan- my new BFF! I don't have a mini one, like this, I have a full sized, but I want the mini one too, so I'm living vicariously through you.


To enter: Leave a comment in the comment section telling me the type of recipes you most enjoy seeing on my blog, or food blogs in general. Do you like pasta? Sweets? Savory? Lay it on me!


Deadline to enter: Midnight, Saturday the 19th.


ONLY ONE ENTRY PER PERSON, CONTINENTAL US RESIDENTS ONLY. 


Good luck!

  2. I like quick dinner recipes I can make after work.

  3. There's no clean answer to that question. I like to see all types of recipes, but the ones I gravatate to the most have clear instructions, a new twist on an old favorite, and/or a final product our family will love.

    ReplyDelete
  4. By far, I bookmark dessert recipes most often.

    ReplyDelete

  9. I love ogling food photography of beautiful sweets. But I also really appreciate weeknight meals for a realistic family.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would have to say the cookies and muffins, however, I do appreciate when you post a quick and easy dinner too like the soy chicken you recently posted! Since those recipes are much harder for me to sift through on the "interwebs" :)

  14. I love anything for the crock pot first and foremost, after that is the appetizer's that you put pictures off that will make me drool. Your's was the first food blog I ever viewed and the one I always turn too. I like that your making the food I would eat. I can always find something for a meal when I struggling on my own.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congratulations, Steph! Your blog has always been my favorite because we have similar tastes and you make recipes easy enough for someone as inexperienced as I am. My favorites are definitely your Asian recipes (especially the sweet & sour chicken!) because they are so much healthier than take out. I also love recipes with short, simple and fresh ingredients lists.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 500 is awesome!! Congrats!! I like to look at all recipes and am excited when it's something I can actually make (I keep kosher and a lot of recipes are things I can't make or can't even adapt well). So, the more recipes, the better the odds I'll find things I can try!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Stephanie! I’m new to your blog as of a month ago. I love it and refer to it every week when I plan my weekly menu! I will try your dinner recipes that don’t take a lot of time and are things I think my 4 and 2 yr old will like! Thanks for sharing your talents with my household!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love quick supper recipes, so I'm always on the hunt for those. Of course, desserts are a close second...

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorite posts are the sweets and pasta dishes! I love to bake and am a total carb addict so those two posts always get me excited! I really enjoy looking at your blog and have downloaded so many recipes I dont know when I am going to try them all! Tonight I am going to try your Garlic Roasted Asparagus. I too am a veggie hater but I am hoping to reform myself with your veggie recipes!

  48. Before I started to enjoy cooking, I was a baker. This year I've moved out of my comfort zone and started "grown up" cooking as I call it. I love collecting various quick dinner or crock pot recipes. And the biggest perk of using a blog to find them is that they've been tested by "real" people and you can see how they really turn out!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The desserts! I love the cake batter bark.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  71. HUGE CONGRATS on your 500th post!

    So, my favorite kind of recipes are ones I can replace with convenience food items and make more healthy for my kids. Like your recent post on granola bars.

    Also, crock pot recipes are rocking my world lately.

  76. Congrats on 500 posts! I just recently discovered the world of cooking blogs and yours is one of the first ones I started following often. A big part of my reason for beginning to follow cooking blogs was to find healthy new ideas for my husband and I to get to a healthy weight prior to having a child, so my favorite type are low fat/calorie weight watchers type recipes.

    ReplyDelete

  82. What a great giveaway! Those all look like handy tools to have for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love seeing savory recipes...sweet ones just make me hungry :) but savory recipes usually inspire me to try something new!

    ReplyDelete

  90. I love your dessert recipes. But now that I'm trying to eat a bit healthier I'm enjoying your main course meals because they are generally healthy (or can be tweaked), but still very yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I love making sweets so I probably look at those recipes first on blogs. But I am always looking for dinner inspiration as well....

    ReplyDelete
  92. It's hard for me to say. I really love pasta dishes because they tend to be easier to make...but after reading some of your recipes, I feel confident that I can spice it up a lil' bit! :p My hubby works weird hours, so dinner time (sadly) is only my 4 year old, my 10 month old and I. It's hard to convince a 4 year old to eat veggies, but in a lot of your recipes, you incorporate veggies...but hide them in a way! It's genius!

    I also really like chicken dishes, and I cannot wait to make the chicken caccitore dish!!!! My hubby usually complains when I spend time on the net while he's home, but he doesn't complain anymomre when I'm on your blog because I end up cooking a delicious meal for him! :)

    I am dying to try the chocolate chip cookie dough dip!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I'd have to saw sweets since I prefer baking, even though I have to cook everyday!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Congrats on 500!! I love seeing new and different sweets recipes but I don't make them often (or I would eat them!) so savory is probably better for my everyday life...but you better believe I star the sweet ones in google reader and save for special occasions!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Although I love drooling over your desserts, I'm most likely to try some of your quicker dinner ideas.

    Congrats on your 500th post!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Congrats on your 500th post!
    I like a variety of recipes...but I probably have the most sweets saved.

    ReplyDelete

    I like to see quick & easy meals that make great leftovers. If they're healthy, that's great, too!

    ReplyDelete
  98. My favorite recipes that you've posted have been great dinner ideas. That is an area where I'm usually lacking inspiration, so your blog has been very helpful! I hope I win!!

  125. I love sweet and I love salty! My new favorite salty recipe is the crispy skillet potatoes, we were eating them out of the pan before they were even done cooking! Every time I use one of your cookie recipes I get so many compliments, they're delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Tough question, I guess I would say my favorite thing to see is main dishes because that is where I sometimes get stuck in a rut, but the posts that make me run to the store the same day to buy the ingredients are the desserts :)

    Guess, I didn't really choose...do I have to? ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  130. I've got to say, I love your bread recipes! Your Hawaiian rolls hold a special place in my family since it was one of the first things I made my hubby (who happens to be Hawaiian!) back when we began dating. The rolls were, and still are, a huge hit. And I swear they're the reason there's a ring on my finger ;)

    And since we're talking about bread... show us how to make some good-old-fashioned challah!

  154. Congrats on your 500th post!! Sweet or savory, I like them all. But the ones I tend to choose are quick dinners at home because that leaves me more time for some much needed downtime.

  156. I have to agree with most people on here I love pretty much all of them but I would have to say the ones I tend to cook first are the quick ethic type of dishes. I love to cook so when I find we are eating the same thing over and over I know exactly where to go. In fact last night we had Sweet Soy Glazed Chicken and Onions. Any chance you may add a Thai dish in the future? :-)
