Monday Giveaway

Share |

Congratulations to sunnymum for winning last weeks giveaway! We hope she enjoys the bunny or puppy -in-the-box.

Ten days till Turkey! We'll be having a bit of Thanksgiving count down now, with posts either centered on the holiday or the general spirit of generosity, thankfulness, and of course being together as a family.

To kick it off, this week's giveaway is a kids gift that can involve the whole family.

Thanksgiving always marks the start of the holiday cooking and baking season, and it's a great time to get the kids involved. The Warm Biscuit Bedding Co. carries a selection of kids kitchen toys that will make children excited to learn to cook. The Betty Crocker Cookbook for Boys and Girls has tons of classic recipes that are easy for kids to make, from Ice Cream Cone Cakes and Pigs in a Blanket to Cheese Dreams and Sloppy Joes.

But of course it's hard for kids, especially the little ones, to use big heavy pots and pans. So there is the 11 piece stainless steel kids cooking set. This kids cooking set includes a 4 in. diameter stock pot, two pans, three lids, 4 1/2 in long slotted spoon, ladle, spaghetti fork, spatula and strainer. This is a great way to get your child started on their way to becoming a world class chef!

Here's how to win both the Betty Crocker Cookbook for Boys and
Girls and the Kids Cooking Set:

1. Leave a comment on your favorite memory in the kitchen as a kid, or as a mom with your children.
2. Mention how you found this site
3. Check out the Warm Biscuit Bedding Co. to see what other kitchen toys they offer for children.
4. Make sure I can contact you! Either leave an email address in your comment, or make sure that you have contact information on your blog profile.

You can receive an extra entry towards this giveaway if you link to this give-away in your blog and put that link in your comment.

The give-away is open for entries until Sunday, November 23rd, at 11:59PM. Winners will be chosen at random, and announced Monday morning. Good luck!

Note: At this time, the Warm Biscuit Bedding Co. cannot ship give-away items internationally. They apologize for the inconvenience to all of you great people living outside of the U.S.

I love this giveaway! My favorite memories are of cooking with my 3-year-old. Although it will take an extra 30 minutes to get dinner made when she is helping, the extra 30 minutes of memories make it all worthwile.

I visit your site often and have tons of things on my wishlist! I love the aprons, they are adorable.

I also posted about this giveaway in my blog

My favorite moment was when my daughter wanted to make cookies all by herself. So I let her read the directions and she did and the cookies came out perfect!!! That was a priceless moment!


Melody said...

I love cooking with my six-year-old, but recently I gave it a try with my 21-month-old. She happily threw chocolate chips in cookie dough batter (and ate quite a few herself).

nanja said...

My favorite memory Decorating sugar cookies with the children for the holidays. They always "goof" at least one or two up and just "have to" it it!!

Aura said...

My favorite memory in the kitchen is sharing the licking of the beaters with my sister after my mom made her special brownie pie.

I found your site when I recieved warm biscuit towels for my daughter.

I really like the kid recipes. Maybe if my son picked out his own recipe, he would actually eat the food!

We had a play baking set as children that had a rolling pin, a rolling mat and cookie cutters. I remember "helping" my mom bake Christmas cookies with it. She's always give me a little dough and I'd roll it out and cut it up. I always felt like I was contributing to the cookie stash, since my mom would always bake my cookies too.

I've been visiting for a while now and have your button on my blog.

I love Warm Biscuit's Retro Play Toaster too!

Missy said...

Yay! I love all things kitchen and can't wait for my little Vi to help out!This set would be absolutely perfect for her growing little hands!
I didn't cook much with my Mom when I was little but I want that so badly for my little girl...I remember having to call from college and ask how to bake a potato!
I stalk your blog it isn't hard to find :)

Kama @ Today's Housewife said...

My favorite memory was making pancakes with faces when we spent the night at our grandparents. Who knew food coloring and toothpicks to spread it in the batter could be so fun!!
Ilove the site--thanks for sharing. Cutebibs--reindeer is my favorite.

JULIE said...

My favorite memories of cooking with mom as a child include making cookies on my own little child-size set of bakeware, trying out the recipes from the kid section of her favorite cookbook, and her teaching me how to make cookies and UFO's (Unidentified FRYING Objects--toast with egg in the middle)!!

We are now expecting our first child and I look forward to many similar happy times of cooking with my own children!!

Jessica said...

I treasure the time I spend in the kitchen with my 3 year old. He loves to be mommy's little helper. He gets a kick out of anything I let him help with, even if it's just stirring a pitcher of Kool-Aid!

I think the aprons on their website are adorable!

I found your site through the Mom Giveaways blog! I am going to follow you now. Thanks!

Hello! What a wonderful prize package. The cookbook and cooking set are adorable! My niece would really enjoy both with her mother. I remember making Christmas cookies with my mom. Neither of us were very good at making the cut out cookies very pretty, but I have never tasted a butter cookie any better than my moms. Please enter me in your delightful giveaway drawing. Honestly, I can't at this time remember how I discovered your site, but I'm very glad that I have. Many thanks, Cindi
