Gift Card Giveaway

If you are anything like me, you are in love with Williams-Sonoma. Really, how can you not be? It seems like every time I walk into that store, I leave realizing there are about a hundred things I don't have in my kitchen that I need.

Alas, my eyes are bigger than my tiny apartment kitchen so I usually stick to window-shopping and browsing. Doing a lot of oooh-ing and ahh-ing along the way.

Maybe I should get to the point. Today, because I love you all so much and I'm very thankful for your readership and when my blog makes money I like to give back. And because I'm guessing we could all use a little more sunshine in our lives during the month of March, I'm giving away a $25 gift card to Williams-Sonoma!


To enter, leave a comment below before Sunday, March 13 at 10 p.m., answering the following question:

What is your ultimate comfort food?

Love Williams-Sonoma. Really, love any store where I can find kitchen gadgets that I must have (but don't really need!).

Comfort food? Grandma's goulash (which, I'm pretty sure is a made-up recipe!).

theradhousewife.com said...

What a wonderful giveaway! Lucky lady! My ultimate comfort food is my Mamah's mashed potatoes and roast beef gravy (Sunday supper-style!) YUM!

Gale Reeves said...

Ashton said...

Oh my! Boy do I love Williams-Sonoma! My go-to food for comfort is potatoes. Anything potatoes, however, mashed potatoes are the best! From simply salted mashed potatoes when I have an upset tummy, to mashed potatoes with all the fixings when I'm just feeling plain blue, mashed potatoes somehow always cheer me up!

Thanks for writing such a wonderful blog! I love how simple and healthy your recipes are.

Kylie said...

My parents did not cook much when I grew up, but I remember lots of hearty, simple pasta. Just pasta, cheese, sauce and graziano sausage!

Carol said...

Grilled cheese or mashed potatoes! Yum!

littlethingsbigstuff.com said...

mac and cheese all the way. the best I've ever had was at The Cafe in Ames, but they took it off the menu before I could have it one last time pre-moving to St. Louis. gah. I must learn to replicate it.

Kristel said...

I have never really gotten the concept of comfort food. I always wonder if its because I grew up with meat and potatoes parents while I was a vegetarian. So my alternative is a good warm cup of tea always makes me feel brand new.

MommyV said...

A HUGE plate of my grandmother's spaghetti sauce on spaghetti noodles, topped with tons of mozzarella cheese.... mmmm Actually had this for dinner tonight :-)

Randi Lynne said...

Meat and potatoes

Kacie Kinney said...

If bread, cheese, or butter is involved, it's comfort food for me. :)

Anything with a ton of cheese or pasta will hit the spot!

Laura said...

Warm apple pie with ice cream on the side...brings so much comfort.

What a great giveaway!! Pizza is my perfect comfort food!!

erin said...

My comfort food is definitely potatoes, prepared to fit my mood- soup when I'm upset, smashed when I'm exhausted, scalloped with ham and cheese for a complete meal...nom nom!

Rachel R. said...

My perfect comfort food is a slice of almost burnt toast with butter and peanut butter smeared on top. The scent of toast wafting through my small apartment takes me back home on weekend mornings at my parent's house. So simple, but so delicious.

courtney said...

Mashed potatoes is my go-to comfort food, always! My sweet husband even knows, if I'm home sick, he better bring home mashed potatoes from a deli or KFC or be ready to make me some!
