My First Giveaway!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Like I said Monday, I don't have any St. Pat's Day recipes for you this year, but I do have a fun giveaway instead! This is the first one on You're Gonna Bake It After All!

I was contacted by a representative from CSNstores.com about a giveaway for my readers. CSN carries just about everything, from unique furniture like counter stools and bar sets (my husband will go crazy for that one!) to my personal favorites, cookware and bakeware.

I always like to have options, so I've decided to make this an interactive giveaway - the winner gets to choose his/her prize! So, you'll have to decide, would you rather have:

a beautiful bamboo cutting board for all your chopping and dicing needs,


a pizelle maker for homemade tasty Italian cookies,


or a wine rack to easily store your favorite beverages?


There are 2 ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment telling me which of these prizes you'd like to receive should you win.

2. Blog about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with a link to the post to make sure I know about it.

Contest is open until next Wednesday, March 24, 10pm CST, and is limited to US and Canadian residents only (I apologize to my international readers!)

**Make sure to either leave your email address or check back next Thursday morning to see if you're a winner. At that point I'll give you 24 hours to give me your email address or I'll have to choose another winner. Good luck!!!! :)

  1. I will post about your give-away on my blog. I'm 3 mos new to food blogging and I had never emailed a blogger or commented on a post until I came across yours. This is my fave blog since it seems like we're on the same food wavelength. I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU POST! I wanted to drop a line to let you know that you inspire me to try new recipes. :) Thanks, Meghan!!! Anne, anne@snowboards-for-sale.com

  3. Wow! Your first giveaway! Way to go girl!
    I will be sure to mention it in my blog. I really stink at the linky thing though. I would have to pick the cutting board.
    I had an accident with my cutting board the other day. Let's just say that it isn't 100% anymore :)
    Have a wonderful day!

  11. Congratulations on your first give away! I just started blogging at the beginning of February so I am very far off from giving stuff away, especially considering I don’t have any followers, haha. Even though I have been blogging since only February, I have been following your blog for a couple of months. Your photos are absolutely amazing, and are one of the reasons that I actually started to blog, after looking at your blog I got incredibly inspired to do it myself!
    If I won this contest, I would for sure go for the pizelle maker. I have always wanted one, my mom and I are supposed to get one this summer, but because money is not the greatest right now, that would have to wait for more important things. I have been in-love with pizelle’s since a really young age, one of the first cookies I actually remember eating (being an Italian and all). I also set up a goal for myself, that within the next four years I would bake through Martha Stewart’s cookie book. One of the cookies in there uses a pizelle maker, so again this would also help with a goal of mine.
    Thank you so much for the giveaway, and thank you for sharing with your fans your beautiful food! Keep blogging ☺

  13. I just did my first Giveaway last week. I've never been to your blog, so I wouldn't feel comfortable entering the giveaway. But good luck to all those that do! I came here thru 3_Arce Homestead.

  14. Congratulations on your first give away! That's so exciting for you. I am very new to blogging and still making my way around. I love to read everyone's stories and see the different types of recipes. If I was chosen in the contest my choice would be the pizelle maker for two reason. First because it brings back very fond memories of my favorite aunt and uncle. My aunt to this day is an amazing cook and when we would visit her when we were little there was always a basket of pizelle's on the counter. We could never get enough. I have her recipe but still had not made it. The second reason, both my children coming from Italian/French background have visited with relatives and it's a family tradition, which I would like to continue in my home.

  20. Look at you and your first giveaway. I would most likely choose the bamboo cutting board. I have been eyeing them for weeks now. For some reason they are calling my name.

    Though the pizelle maker does make the decision a little harder. :)
