FINALLY!!! 1,000+ GIVEAWAY!!!!

Dearest Friends of Chefwannabe-

I am SO happy to announce my first EVER "Orange You Glad You're a Friend of Chefwannabe" giveaway!  I know, I promised a big giveaway when I reached 1,000 fans.  However, you were all so kind, and supportive, and got me the rest of the way SO quickly I hadn't really prepared like I should!  I don't think you will mind the wait when you see what is inside of this great "giftbag-sket". (If you only knew how much this cracked me up when I thought of calling it that.  I am a genius in my own mind)





Let me tell you about what is included in this...-------->

You will find all things ORANGE! Chefwannabe's favorite color!!
Some orange kitchen utensils, a spoon, slotted spoon, silicone covered whisk, egg whisk, you may or may not I can NOT live without whisks, my fav kitchen utensils!  An orange, nonstick Santoku knife, meat injector, small kitchen towel,  and a basting brush!!

You will also receive some other really great goodies!

You will receive Ginger Sugar, Vanilla Sugar and Santa Fe Dry Rub from my friends over at Mystic Blue Spice Company!  And you will receive Cajun seasoning and fish fry mix (which I used on pork chops) from my dear friends over at Mr. Pete's Cajun Spices!


You will also receive a 2012 calender, Chili Vanilli candle, votive candle and a sweet orange and chili pepper melt from my birthday twin, Kim at Kim's Candle Sense~Mia Bella's Gourmet Candles!

And my sister modeling a custom apron, fabric picked by me!  (I love polka dots as much as I love the color orange) from my dear friend Judith at Fried Green Aprons!


Now, how COOL is all that stuff?  I know you have been wanting to try some of these things, and now is your chance to WIN it!  You are lucky I am not keeping it all for myself but  my friends were nice enough to send me some cool stuff too!  I can vouch for the quality and flavor and smells of every single item in your giftbag-sket!!  I will enclose a clear plastic bag full of information on these companies and how to re-order, if you choose to do so!  


Here is how to you win....You can get up to 4 entries!

The chance to win ends on February 27th.
