Gift Certificate Giveaway


Last week CSN contacted me, asking if I would review a product or host a giveaway of a $150 gift certificate. My kitchen is already hopelessly cluttered with tools and gadgets, so I thought I would pass the gift certificate on to one of my humble readers. A small token of my appreciation.

You should all know really do appreciate your taking the time to follow and read the silliness I post here. When I started this blog it was purely for my own amusement, nothing more. I never expected to be one of those blogs that had followers. Now I look over at that right hand column and I am all astonishment. Really.

Don't worry, I haven't let it go to my head. I really am Ms. Humble. If anything, it usually just fills me with dread that I'll disappoint you and then you'll un-follow me. (Oh no. What did I do wrong…. wahhhhh) I can't handle that kind of rejection.

Wait, this is supposed to be about my giveaway and not my personal neurosis, right. Moving on...




So a $150 gift certificate! For the winner to spend as they please. I should note that the certificate doesn't cover shipping costs but most of the stuff on CSN has or qualifies for free shipping anyway, so no worries there.

So let's make this fun. What would you buy with $150? They stock just about everything from furniture and sectional sofas to pet supplies and housewares. They actually have over 200 different stores to browse.

I guess one of the first things I'd pick out would be a new marble rolling pin for working with chilled pastry. However at $9 that really doesn't make much of a dent in this gift certificate. So much mad-money to spend…this could be fun, right?

So think about what you would like to win and leave a comment below including:
  • your email address
  • what sort of baking/cooking from their housewares store that you really want or need. A copper bowl, a ice cream maker, or my rolling pin? This is just for fun of course, the winner can spend the gift certificate on anything.
  • If you follow my blog or start following my blog I'll enter your name twice into my drawing. If you also follow on Facebook I'll enter you three times. Just be sure to mention that when you enter (To be fair, I will be verifying that the winner was entitled to however many entries they got).

I will write an email address for each entry on a paper slip and toss it into a bowl. I will select one of the slips on Tuesday June 22nd (you can post a comment to enter up until 11AM PST on the 22nd). This drawing is open to all my readers in the US and Canada.

Edit: Looks like I will be spending an entire day cutting out little slips of paper!

  1. Am I the first to enter? Oh no...

    I would like to have an ice cream maker, or maybe just the ice cream making bowl attachment for my 20+ year old KitchenAid mixer, handed down from my mother.

    I have followed you on Google, and through Facebook. I love your blog!

  2. First off, your science cookies kill! We love them in our lab! So obviously I follow you. Second, faithlandsman at earthlink dot net.

    I killed my kitchenaid mixer making fondant...This would go a long way toward a new one.

  3. I want...
    - nonstick pans
    - a set of knives
    - 9" cake pans
    - a bundt pan
    - AND a food processor!

    Hmm, I may need more than $150 for all that - but here's hoping!

  6. Ms.Humble -- a small typo -- you have CNS instead of CSN...I wasn't familiar with the store so I googled it and got central nervous system. I knew that couldn't be right so I clicked on the sectional sofa link. (grin)

    That said, my e-mail is westenhoff at gmail dot com

    I would spend the gift cert on a good 12" non-stick pan. I have a stainless steel and love it, but could use a non-stick for some dishes.

    I have followed you via Google/Blogger, and I'm going over to Facebook RIGHT NOW to follow you there. I've never done that on facebook for ANYONE!

    And I bought something called "Farmer's Cheese" today on the advice of the lady at the cheese shop to try as a substitute for turo in the Hungarian Cheesecake. I'll let you know . . .

  7. Love your blog!

    I think I would buy something for my deck. Maybe a bar-set or something.

    Following you on facebook too.

    Good luck everyone!

  8. We are gearing up to finally start to redo the kitchen in our new house, and I'm hoping to get all kinds of new gadgets to use in it.

    Honestly, the thing I feel like I actually *need* the most is a stand mixer. I haven't put it on my wishlist because I haven't had any counter space I can spare. But with the redesign, I'm gonna have LOTS of counter space!

    I follow you on FB, and check your blog the old fashioned way - bookmarks. I love your creativity.

  9. Oh my goodness! I would buy saucepans, certainly. Maybe a cast iron skillet? Some more cutting boards? A great knife?

    Oh by the way, I follow you here and on FB.

  10. I would buy a tea kettle to replace the beautiful red enameled one I accidentally melted to burner that time I turned on the wrong one. Maybe the beautiful blue le creuset one. Or perhaps an electric one to avoid such mishaps. A waffle-iron, so I could make cake waffles. And this isn't for the kitchen but I can't lie and not mention that I would buy some sort of better litter box because OH MY GOODNESS! I am sick of stepping on cat litter.

    I follow you here on blogger, and on facebook. my email address is jewelaroni at gmail dot com

  11. Ooh, this makes me all sorts of excited. I LOVE your blog, being both a scientist AND a wanna-be pastry chef.

    I really would like a new coffee maker - so I have all the energy I need to bake when I want. Plus, I've always wanted a marble rolling pin and marble board for making pie crusts. This certificate would be so helpful.

    I follow your blog, on Facebook and also on Twitter.

    Thanks!

  12. I just tried to look through and decide what I would like, and oh my gosh, i think i just tallied up 5000 dollars! Everyone I know has birthdays in the next two months so this would be perfect for gifts for them, but i also am an avid baker (copper bowl hello!),and my home is also under renovation so....

    I follow you on google and Facebook and I am a psuedo-scientist (not graduated) so i love love love the science cookies.

    ps. i am one of those people who has never won anything ever, but today i am giving it a shot!

  15. Oh goodness. I think, since I just got out of college and am building a kitchen, I'd want a nice knife set. My $3 one from Ikea is miserably difficult. I'm following you on Google (though not under this ID -- my googleID has my real name so I don't like to comment under it but you can email me to ask me what it is to double check!) and just became a fan of yours on Facebook.

  16. I follow on Twitter, and stop by the page whenever I can for more updates. Definitely one of my favorite cooking/baking blogs!

    I've been expanding my baking repertoire, so I'd probably buy baking supplies-- a springform pan, a square pan, cooling racks, and an extra round pan for doing tiered cakes.

  17. Hi! I have to say that I love this blog and so do my kids! They love the cookies and finding new things for me to make!

  19. there are so many things i would get:

    a really nice cutting board
    and a wide assortment of all the little tools i never buy because i'm cheap.

  20. I have been wanting a spice rack... my herbs & spices are all over the place - literally (it's like an Easter egg hunt when I cook). I love the 6-drawer chest they have.

    I have been following you on Blogger for some time now... I also have you on FB. I've made 3 of your recipes including marshmallows - I will live vicariously through your macaroon experience and wait til I visit France again :)

    I am experimenting with whoopie pies right now... jalepeno corn bread with bacon scallion filling is what's being shipped out to family and friends now.

  24. What a great giveaway prize! If I won (and my fingers are crossed), I would invest in a new set of pots and pans. Mine were cheap when I got them and they are at least 10 years old now. They are in terrible shape and I would love a new set.

  25. I'm torn between wanting a new stand mixer (so I can retire the 40-year-old beast that my mother handed down to me after she finally got a new one) or a dutch oven.

  27. I think I would use the $150 as partial payment for a Henckels knife set. And with those knives I would practice hard until I could rival your mad dessert slicing skills.

  28. What would I spend $150 gift cert on? Oh, you mean AFTER I replace the mixer that I burned the motor out and a new, sharp knife to hide from my husband so he won't use it on PVC pipes and other nonsense and a cookie sheet that the kids haven't use in their "experiments". Then I would get a a chocolate mill since no one can seriously call themselves a chocoholic without one...

    And do I follow you? Please, I practically stalk you! Twitter, regular blog reader, and FB plus I hooked my brother and dad onto your posts. :D

  29. I would put the money towards a kitchenaid mixer. Or canning stuff, if they have it. Or more cheese cloth. Or... well, kitchen stores are my happy place, I'm sure I'd find something.

  30. Hi

    I have got you in my google reader and the post that brought me to your blog was the agarose gel cookies (awesome idea - my husband is defending his thesis in two weeks btw so i think i will prepare some just for fun :)

    I would either buy set of extremely good knifes or buy the mixer that i can actually do stuff with as the one i have is a 6$ mashine!

  31. Things my life is sorely lacking include but are not limited to:
    coffee grinder
    silpat
    crock pot
    fry/candy thermometer
    roasting rack
    vegetable steam basket
    the list goes on and on. I would try to trim this list as much as possible with a gift cert.

    I am a long-time subscriber to your blog (updates show up automatically on my google reader page). I didn't know this was different than following a blog. But now i am a follower as well.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Definitely a dutch oven! I've wanted one for so long! And I just started following your blog a short while ago, but I love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Cast iron frying pan for making pancakes and french toast, among other things.

    If I have money left, a nice set of rocks glasses in which to drink whiskey while I paint (and to share with my models/muses).

    I am following you here and on facebook.

  34. I'd start with a new electric steamer to replace the one that just died, and a variety of loaf pans for my bread baking. Then I'd really consider the ice cream bowl for my KitchenAid stand mixer. I keep waiting for my current ice cream maker to die so I can get that.

    Following on Google Reader.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, I can't not jump on this.

    I'm going to say I'd start with the Hamilton 10 cup food processor because the intensity with which I desire a food processor is absurd. Along side that, a new rolling pin, a few more cookie sheets to round it up, I think.

    I would like to get a kitchen aid stand mixer! I think I've been baking long enough now to know that I would put it to good use. :)

  37. I would figuratively die for a new kitchen faucet. The one in my new house doesn't have a hose! It's fixed in place! I never realized how useful/indispensable/vital the hose was until I have had to live without it. I hate this one so much that I leave the dishes for my husband. He would be ecstatic (and relieved) if we won this!

    I could really use a cookie sheet. I know it's really simple but I love making cookies and cookies are like my thing I always have in my cupboards, but I don't even own a cookie sheet. I bake cookies on a pizza pan, how sad is that?

    Keep up the great work!

  40. Hi Ms. Humble-

    Thanks for living up to your name and choosing the gift certificate giveaway! I am a happy follower of your blog both through google and facebook. I am a scientist myself (neuroscience and psychology) and I love all the geeky additions you add to your blog.

    I would first buy myself a kitchen scale, as I've never owned one and given my predilection for both baking and anal-retentive scientific measuring, that seems like a necessity. After the scale I'd probably use the money to buy a good knife. I have one decent one now, but am in desperate need of an additional knife.

    Thanks!

    I'd buy three All Clad Ovenware Baking Sheets
    http://www.csnstores.com/All-Clad-9000SB-AAC1176.html I would never splurge on these with my own money, because just those 3 would take care of the entire $150! I was so excited to find your gel electrophoresis cookies and all the other science-related cookies (fellow stay-at-home scientist) that I feel the need to go on a huge baking spree!

  45. I fixed the CNS/CSN error. Thanks!

    These wish-lists are really interesting.

    I agree with the knives. Everyone should have a good sharp knife and absolutely keep it away from your husband who wants to cut PVC with it (the horror!).

    Le Creuset is popular I see (I love them too, I admit it). However, do check out Lodge brand dutch ovens if they carry them. They make the same enameled ovens for much less. They also make fantastic cast iron pans. I have a 12" lodge skillet and a corn bread pan that I'll probably hand down to my kids.

  46. I would like an ice cream maker. Specifically, a self-cooling Cuisinart. $150 would certainly help!

    I've been a follower and a big fan since December. You make me wish I had decent tools to cook, but I'm a broke college student. If I won, I'd put it towards a stand mixer, or perhaps some decent pots and pans, and some bakeware.

    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I most definitely need a Kitchen Aid mixer!! My baking endeavors have failed miserably, probably because the 1978 Sunbeam mixer that I inherited from my grandmother makes a funny smell from the motor area whenever I go beyond the "combine dry ingredients" setting...

    Ah, and I both follow your blog and made sure to "like" it on Facebook!

  49. I am blessed to have everything I want and/or need in my kitchen. But I would love to enter on behalf of my darling Daughter #1, a great young baker/cook who also is a nerdy scientist and who thinks your website is super cool! If I am lucky enough to win, I'll turn the prize over to her.

    Don't know if it counts, but she set up my computer so that your blog pops up on "Google Reader" the moment you post something new. So I know about it right away!

    I'm moving in a month, and while I have a few nice non-stick pans, I have absolutely no pots whatsoever as I've been using my roommates. So that would be the first this on my list. With anything left over I would get a nice copper or stainless steel mixing bowl to use for melting chocolate over the stove or when I want to make gelato in the freezer :D I've been reading your blog forever but just followed you as well as liking your facebook page :)

  56. Hi again! oh boy... so many choices! I'd definitely think about using the money towards a new KitchenAid stand mixer (since I'll be moving out from home, it would be nice to have my own). Or, I'd put it towards a Gaggia Espresso machine because I can't enjoy desserts without espresso. Also, I used to be a barista so having my own machine was always a dream of mine. OR (I swear this is the last "or"), I would invest in buying a Staub Cocotte or Braiser Saute Pan for the boyfriend (I know, he's lucky) and a Staub tea kettle for me.

    Thanks for this opportunity! I follow your blog here (username: em) as well as on facebook.

  57. Ms. Humble,

    Wow, this is a great giveaway, thanks for the chance!

    I'm currently under contract for my first home, and there are so many things I could do with $150 gift certificate! But after careful consideration, I think I'd have to put it towards a Cuisinart 5.5 quart stand mixer, in brushed chrome (or the 7 quart, but I didn't see it on the site). More than furniture, dishes, and other "essentials", I've always wanted my own Cuisinart mixer. As a fellow science nerd and aspiring baker, I can't wait to have my own kitchen and start trying some of your recipes.

    I follow you here on Google Blogger, and on facebook. I can be reached at "davidtana at gmail dot com". Thanks again!

  58. I have been dying to get an immersion blender and a slow cooker. With any money left over I could get some decent cookie sheets to replace my warped and stained ones :)

  59. First, Totally in love with your blog. I made your lovely, blue cupcakes with the fondant daisies for my friend's bridal shower and they were a huge hit. Also, I made your caramels (which was the first time I delved into candy-making). Thank you thankyou! They were out of this world.

    Okay, anyway, my email address is campbell.rae@gmail.com. I do follow you on google and facebook.

    I would buy an ice cream maker, or maybe copper bowls since I have never owned any. Anything that would help me cook and bake more especially since I am inspired to start my own food blog, if only to the share the recipes I try with friends. Thanks again!

    A friend sent me a link, because I'm working my way through the alphabet in pie this year. (I'm on "K" which was, of course, Key Lime.)

    So I'd buy an Emile Henry pie plate, a copper bowl for meringues, and a decent knife.

  65. After having an ex-boyfriend take off with literally ALL my kitchen/baking stuff years ago (to the tune of over $2000 no less), the only things my husband hasn't helped me replace are my Silpats and a set of heavy duty baking sheets. I'd also love an extra 6qt bowl for my Kitchenaid (although I don't think that's something they carry). Oh! And maybe some smaller Microplanes for nutmeg and the like.

    Reading your blog has been quite a treat and a real inspiration for me to finally try cookie decorating, albeit with much less success than you've been able to attain. =)

  66. What a great giveaway. I follow your blog and love it - although I have to admit to feeling like a bit of a baking failure in comparison...

    I would love an ice cream maker. I do make ice cream regularly and it would be great not to have to keep taking it out of the freezer and stirring it.

  70. You are one of the blogs that makes my heart flutter when the FOOD section of my reader is in bold. I get SO excited... its a total tie between you and Rachel's Goma Web Log on the Kivu region of the Congo. Serious!

    I would get some muffin baking pans, because I don't have any... and maybe a cutting board? Mine is half melted on the corner and you can only cut on one side. Maybe a separate coffee grinder for just coriander... and my rubber spatula which I love was hysterically mutilated trying to get applesauce out of the food processor.... LOTS of things I need.

  71. I desperately need a set of good knives... I've got my eye on The Chicago Cutlery "Insignia Cutlery" set. That would take care of most of it in one big chunk. BTW, I follow your blog on am now following you on facebook! I feel like a stalker!!

    I need everything. Really, I am not kidding. I am getting married and I once got rid of all of my kitchen things because I thought I was going to live in South America. Who knew I would come back and get married and have NADA. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awesome! Hmmm... I'm moving so there's a long list of stuff, new knives, nice new cutting boards, or maybe some Le Creuset. There's a lot of nice stuff that I could use to break in a new kitchen.

  74. Oh gosh. I love pretend shopping! I would definitely go for the icecream maker for fun. It would alleviate some of this Florida heat and my A/C is broken currently so it seems even better. I'd go for a baking sheet and a silpat sheet.

    I follow your blog through my google reader. And enjoy it greatly!

  75. I would probably put it toward buying a nice dutch oven for a friend's birthday. She really wants one but has been spending all her time and money on finishing their remodel before her hip surgery in two weeks! I figure once she can stand for more than 10 minutes at a stretch, a new piece of cookware would be a fun distraction during recovery.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh how I love, love, love your blog!
    I seriously start drooling every time I see a new post! I wish I had all the time in the world so that I can make every single recipe that you blog about! How do you do it??

    Anyway, if I won the giveaway I would definitely get an ice cream maker and possibly an ice cream cone maker. I know it's not really a huge necessity to some, but for us in the hot humid south it is an essential to survive!!

    My email is liliddick@hotmail.com and (of course) I am a follower.

  77. A FOOD PROCESSOR. Or at least a blender. While I do at least have a decent kitchen since I moved into my new apartment, I am still a po' college student hampered by the severe lack of Kitchen Gadgetry I can afford.

    If there's anything left, I'd get a really good set of measuring spoons and some new baking pans--I pine for a muffin tin. And a steamer, but now I'm just getting greedy.

    And then I would start working through all your recipes!

    Much love,

  80. I always need another ridiculously shaped cake pan (I saw one shaped like ice cream cones - how cool!). Of course, Mr. C will probably talk me into getting something useful, like a blender. (Maybe I can convince him that an ice cream machine would be useful too!)

    If I had $150 to spend, I'd buy lots and lots of Silpat mats. Those things are awesome. Those and a kitchen scale. I think my macaron obsession would be greatly enhanced by both of these. I could get my macaron fix every day!

    Please consider me for your generous giveaway.

  90. I've been reading this blog for a while (but now I finally have followed you!)

    I definitely want an ice cream maker! Reason A] is because we're moving to Georgia and it's hot there, Reason B] is that even if I lived in Alaska I'd want one because dang food blogs keep showcasing ice creams to make!

    Hmmm...other than that...maybe some tall bowls for mixing, the only ones we have are shallow, so it makes a lot of mess.

    To be honest, my entire kitchen could really use some updating. But mostly I would like a new coffee pot where the carafe doesn't spill all over whenever you pour from it causing endless frustration. Being the happy little OCD cook that I am, I would probably ended up spending the rest of the gift certificate (if I won) in their Kitchen Storage & Organization area. Ooo! A cookbook holder! *gets sucked into the site, never to return*

    My bank account blames you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. Firstly, I cannot stop scrolling through the CSN site; I feel like I have opened Pandora's Box of Potential Naughty Kitchen Purchases. I would blame you, but I love your lime tart too much to have any negative feelings. Ever.

    Secondly, an ice cream maker would certainly be number one on my list...But I am not sure I could be trusted to eat any other type of food if I had one. So, some TBD piece of Le Creuset bakeware in Kiwi and/or Caribbean would be my second -and safer- choice indulgence.

    Finally, the email is molly.patton(at)yahoo.com & I follow on the blog & facebook.

  135. Dear Ms. Humble,

    I realize how deeply unoriginal (among the list of comments already submitted) both of these items are, but I would put the money toward a KitchenAid. I can do a lot by hand -- bread doughs, cake batters, whipped cream and egg whites, but the one thing I've been told just can't be done by hand is pasta sheets. I assisted a pasta making class last fall that used the pasta roller attachment, and I'm determined to own one someday. Thanks for the chance!

    (Your quest for the perfect macaron has inspired me to do the same with a few of my favorite dishes!)

  144. After selling Pampered Chef for a few years, my kitchen is full to bursting with tools. :) I really need a new updated kitchen, but I don't think that $150 will go far...although they do sell kitchen sinks and faucets. And I guess I could always use more silicon baking mats (since I only have one). Come to think of it, I don't own a food processor...where to put it would be a problem though...not enough counter space.

    I've been following your blog and on facebook too. Thanks for all your hard work with the Scottish tablet. I have to try it out for my Scottish husband soon. :)

  145. Well, my first thought is to put the money towards a stand mixer as that's the number one item I am missing for baking. But I might also do a bunch of little things, kitchen tools that I need/want better versions of, like some more spring-form pans, a bigger mesh strainer, et cetera.

    I certainly do follow your blog, but I don't really use facebook, so no following there.

  165. I think it would be wonderful to have a few of the Nordicware Natural Commercial 13" Bakers Quarter Sheets. Nice rolling pin though!

    I would really really love a stand mixer because right now I use a handheld one for everything... or kitchen scales, which might be more affordable :]

    I follow your blog but not on Facebook

    Anything I want for my kitchen??? Hmm... but there's so much! What I want the most right now is:

    Kitchenaid ice cream bowl
    Extra Kitchenaid mixing bowl
    New baking pans - all please!

    Oh, and that marble rolling pin looks amazing! Probably that, too.

  169. I have found myself lately wishing I had a mortar and pestle. And I need a new pepper mill.

  170. Wow what a great giveaway. I would definitely put that gift certificate towards a stand mixer. Though that might cause me to lose my one reliable arm workout. So maybe I'd put it towards a Le Creuset dutch oven instead.

  171. What a great giveaway! I would buy a non-stick madeleine pan, a balloon whisk and a sillicone baking mat.

  172. Hmmmm... I'd probably put it towards a stand mixer, or an ice cream maker of some kind. Knives are always nice to have though.

  173. I am a follower (Sandra Chang) and I would love to have the Hamilton 10 cup food processor! I recently just broke the food processor we had for years so I could really use a new one! Thanks for a chance to win!

  175. I would loooove a Le Creuset Dutch Oven...especially since they're having a super deal on the set! Or else I'm sure I could find a billion little gadgets and doohickeys I want to buy!

  176. Oh my goodness...how to decide?? Well, first, my email is sarahw5484@gmail.com and I follow your blog and now follow you on facebook as well :)

    As for what I would buy...I would have to get a little something for my puppy child, and then probably some new knives...oh there are so many options!

  177. So - my email is wench0398 at aol . I would buy some baking pans that I don't have - one can always use new baking stuff especially when you bake 15-20 dozen cookies a week with the grandson! (Or cookie cutters - we've been doing a lot of cutouts...)
    I follow you on facebook and via google...would love to let my grandson help me spend that gift certificate!!

  178. I would love a bundt cake pan. I know it sounds silly. I like big bundts and I cannot lie....

  179. i'd love a copper bowl.. however there's probably a few more important things i might need. tart pans, half sheet pans, another silpat.

    I follow you through google reader and on facebook. Enter me thrice!

  180. I adore all the wonderful nerdy that goes on on this blog, btw. With $150 I would buy a new set of pots and pans. I'm still living off of the mismatching ones I bought during undergrad...or maybe put the money toward a new camera to I can take decent photos of my own amateur attempt at a food blog.

  182. This summer I moved into my very first apartment! I love being in college, being a young independent female, and I love cooking! -but I could definitely use some kitchenware
    I think a waffle maker would be a good investment for me and my roommates, but so would a rolling pin which I don't have either

  183. How exciting! I'm going to be unoriginal and say a Kitchen Aid mixer. A 6 quart lift mixer to be exact. I had one but it's no longer with us. During it's somewhat short life it was extremely busy but it died. I'm having a hard time without it.

    ReplyDelete
  184. To be honest: I've been unemployed for over a year and my good friend is getting married in July. Needless to say, the finances are non-existent. There are plenty of things I'd like for my own kitchen: copper bowls, KA attachments, cotton candy machines(!!) and anything fun/exciting comes to mind. Instead, I'll get my friend something amazing. Something she wouldn't buy herself, but would love to have!

  186. I'm a poor postdoc just starting to put together a respectable kitchen... there are SO MANY things I still need! But I would start with a good KitchenAid stand mixer. And next maybe a food processor. And after that, maybe an ice cream maker (yum!)

    I'm following you on facebook now!

  187. Wow, look at all these people! *looks up and waves*

    Ok, in-my-dreams shopping list comprises:
    * Beautiful bright white table linens
    * Lovely white bone china dinner service
    * This brightly coloured stemware: http://www.cristaldarquesparis.co.uk/News/longchamp-folly/longchamp%282%29.aspx
    (I have some Longchamp glasses but need more - planning my Christmas place settings!)
    * KitchenAid (who DOESN'T want one! Alas they are about $800 in S'pore)
    * Copper bowl
    * Really well-tempered Japanese knife (no time for grouchy knives)
    * Diamond hone (two of my knives are ceramic and getting them sharpened is a pain. Want to learn to do it myself.)

    I follow on FB and just signed up through blogger as well.

    And my email addy is hewitt.louise at gmail dot com

    Good luck everybody!

  190. I'm moving out on my own for the first time this fall, so... I think I'd go for kitchen basics. I'd get some nice pans, storage containers for flour and things, maybe an ice cream maker (not so basic, I know).

    I follow you on bloglines and facebook.

  192. Hi! I have used the contest as an incentive to actually join as a follower and on Facebook! The things we get around to doing when there are potential prizes at stake.

    Anyway! What I would buy are some cookie cutters to make the awesome science cookies - love those. And some 3D cookie cutter sets. And the Nordicware zoo friends pancake pan and fairytale cottage bundtware cake pan (and pirate ship pan, ooooh and the classic cars pan!!) and . . . well, I'm not done my list, but I think I'd have more than spent the gift certificate.

    Thanks for a great blog. I thoroughly enjoy it.

  194. I could use a ton of kitchen tools! Double Boiler, cake pans, hand mixers, stand mixer. Really, too many things to list. Maybe I just need to have a wedding? lol.

  195. I would use the gift card to buy something...I don't know what yet. It would definitely have to be something for my kitchen. I would have to at least get a mortar and pestle.

    After reading your blog, I'd really like to get a copper mixing bowl, as well as some new cookie sheets, a springform pan, and a French rolling pin.

  197. I would use the gift card to help pay for a Kitchen Aid mixer. I have wanted one for SO long but being a full time college student, I don't really have enough extra spending money to purchase one.
