Help me get out of my slump and GIVEAWAY!

November 17th, 2010

So, I’ve been in a bit of a cooking slump and hence not much blogging… for some reason even though I have pretty good ideas, the execution just is not as tasty as I would like… probably has something to do with the impending doom exams… of course, when I received my order from the WEBstaurantStore, the leading restaurant equipment and supply website, I figured that perhaps my slump may be almost over…

When the WEBstaurantStore contacted me regarding a promotion (and giveaway for you!), I was a little unsure of it because the website is designed for restaurants and the food industry… but once my friend Aaron pointed out the copper mixing bowl, I realized I had underestimated this site.

It is a little difficult to browse because it is divided up by different types of food places but once I got the hang of it (the bakery category is an excellent place to start!), I started filling my cart with some basic cooking supplies that I desperately need…

You see- I started stocking my kitchen in college… combined with little income, many moves and numerous roommates… I have a hodgepodge of baking and cooking gear… It is time to have some grown-up cooking staples…

Through WEBstaurantStore I picked out 4 mixing bowls, 2 wooden spoons, 6 cutting boards, a spatula, cookie sheet and parchment paper… all for $50.  I was very impressed with how quickly my order arrived… three days later, I picked up the box!  It was like Christmas!

The WEBstaurantStore will give one of my readers $50 to spend on its site… The winner will be picked randomly on December 1st.

Does the above picture give you a hint? what about chocolate? beer? waffles?

Yep, I’m in Brussels. It was an out of the blue trip but I’m here. I know today I was going to decide the winner to my giveaway but… that will have to wait… You will have until Friday now to enter! Enjoy!

Updated:  I’m back!  The trip was lovely.  Now I’m recovering and busy with school.  The winner of the giveaway was Tammy.  Congratulations!  I’ll get cooking soon!
