Twelve things I love ~13 if you count FREE stuff! {GIVEAWAY}

Twelve things I love dearly in my kitchen
{other than people ~of which there are many}
  • my Magic Bullet
  • my Too Cute Totes Apron
  • my Kyocera Ceramic knives
  • my Calphalon saute pan with silicone handles
  • my candy stripe William~Sonoma pot holders
  • my silicone potholders {see profile picture!}
  • my Sea Salt collection
  • my Scentsy burner
  • my hanging measuring spoons from the Purple Dragonfly Boutique
  • my Pampered Chef nesting measuring cups
  • my Tom Colicchio "Think Like A Chef" cookbook
  • my POMI tomatoes
And to celebrate these awesome things I'm going to write a review AND give one of them away EACH month for the next 12 months!  The entry periods will run from the day I post until the last day of the month.... for example entries for April's giveaway will start NOW and end on April 30th at 11:59 p.m. EST.  Note: while I will consider entries from anywhere, I will only pay for shipping within the US FOR THIS MONTH's ITEM {it's food & it's heavy}, so if you are living outside of the US we will have to reach an arrangement on shipping costs if you enter and win.... so, you are dying to know... what do you have to do?






Well, you need to leave a comment on this post confirming that you have done the following tasks:
  • Followed/Joined my site OR signed up to receive my emails
  • Liked my Facebook page or followed me on Twitter or Pinterest
Now, although my site allows anonymous comments if you are anonymous I cannot contact you! So make sure you leave a way to contact you... PLEASE do not hesitate to email me with any questions you might have at heidisuewebb@yahoo.com.  I will announce winners on the 1st of the month in a post and contact you via email, your blog if you're a blogger or any other method you provide in your comment! If I cannot find you I will do a second drawing one week later.... someone is gettin' the stuff!
So, enough talk.... what's my April pick?  My POMI!  I'm giving a CASE of Pomi CHOPPED tomatoes... that's 12 packages, over 300 ounces of the BEST "canned" tomatoes you will ever find.  I love these things and always have them on my shelf.  I use the chopped, strained and their paste but the chopped are my favorite.... I make a salsa that has been called "magical" with these things.... seriously, they are that good.  And so while I am a "fresh ingredient girl" these are my go-to tomatoes for sauces, sides and salsa's.  They are 100% tomatoes and I kid you not it's the ONLY ingredient... LOOK!

So, one lucky person will get their pantry full... will it be you? Cannot wait to see. But even if it's not, you should seek them out, you WILL be a believer.

In bocca al lupo! or Good Luck :)




p.s. this was updated and clarified on April 1st based on some feedback, but nothing that would affect the current participants negatively.  Hope you'll join in the fun!
