2nd Blogoversary GIVEAWAY!

Hello to all my loyal and new followers/readers/creepers!
My 2nd Blogoversary is a mere 26 days away! This past year has been so fun and lots of exciting and wonderful things have happened to the blog (and myself) like the redesign and my becoming the food writer at amotherworld.com. More exciting things to come in the very near future, but for now I want to thank you all for using and reading my blog with a GIVEAWAY!

My oven got all attitude-y with me this week and decided to continue to get hotter and hotter after it reached the temperature I put in, so baking and roasting is out of the question until the repair guy comes and fixes it (hopefully soon, I'm dying over here!). It's made me really appreciate my barbeque and my slow cooker!

So in honour of my small kitchen appliance saving the day, I'm giving away a CrockPot® Slow Cooker and a General Mills prize pack!

To see a complete list of the Crockpot's features and  the General Mills Prize Pack contents, click here.

I use my slow cooker for chili, pasta sauces, pulled pork and soups, and I'm experimenting with new recipes all the time!
There will be some other goodies, tools I use in my own kitchen that I love like some silicone spatulas and Baker's Secret bakeware. When I get it all together I'll list all the items!

So now you're wondering "How do I win this fabulous prize?"

Required for entry:


Head over to lifemadedelicious.ca's collection and tell me which recipe you would make first in your new CrockPot®! While you're there I highly recommend you sign up for their newsletter, every 2 weeks you'll get an email full of yummy recipes!

Want extra entries?

Each item you do will get you ONE other chance to win (for a total of 6 chances), if you ALREADY do any of these things, they DO count! So make sure to comment for each item! You must leave each entry as a separate comment or only one comment will count.

1. Follow me @caffeinated_mom on Twitter and tweet the following statement then come back to this post and tell me you tweeted.

  6. I really want to make a beef stew in the crock pot, so I searched Life Made Delicious's webpage and found this receipe: Italian Beef and Ravioli Stew. It looks amazing, and I always love my starch with beef, so it will be the first thing that I try with my new crock pot.

  44. lol, it's tough to get into, a lot of people just don't get it (I didn't either when I first started) but it's an amazing online community. But that's why I didn't make it a requirement, not everyone is as addicted as I am ;)

  45. Favorite recipes to date that I've made for my family are:
    Turkey Pot Pie; Caramilk Fudge (I substituted the caramilk for snickers);granny's banana bread; rustic jam tarts and hashbrown quiche. I'm working my way through all the recipes! p.s My daughter is now known as the fudge dealer at her highschool. I say that's a good thing but she's making all the profits!

  46. I'm always up for trying a new rib recipe so the Santa Fe ribs would be it! I can imagine they would melt in your mouth like butter after being slow cooked for hours.

    p.s Amanda, I would love to share a few recipes with you if you're interested! One in particular landed me my husband! haha He's cursing me to this day for his little budha belly.

  57. I haven't tried any recipes yet, but I plan to make the hashbrown bake. My kids are big fans of hashbrown bake but I haven't found a good recipe yet to make it at home, and this one looks perfect. I have it bookmarked and plan to make it soon.
