"Thank You" $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway - CLOSED


I rarely do giveaways on here, and it's because I'm kind of a scrooge.

Mostly because I feel like the honorable citizens who follow this blog should come back for more because they genuinely enjoy the blog/recipes - not because of free prizes. And you know what? I believe it! You guys are coming back for more!

You're actually trying the recipes with your families, and that's WAY awesome. I've loved reading on Pinterest, Facebook, and notes in comments about how you've tried the recipes, loved them, and shared them. It always makes me smile, and it makes all this time I put into blogging completely worth it. I adore the way delicious food can bring couples, families, friends, and everyone else together - including you fine people.

I have felt so much love and support from all of you - and most of whom I've never even met! And to me, that's just amazing. It's something that I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally. So...

Thank you...

so much everyone for all your support since day 1, and especially this past month pulling through for the Top Bloggers of 2013 contest! 

And in case you didn't hear... 

WE DID IT!
We won the Voiceboks contest, dang it. 

Baking with Blondie is 2013's Top Food Blog. 
And it's because of YOU.

So, in lieu of what I feel is a definite victory for all of us, here's a little cash to Treat Yo Self with: 


Buy whatever the heck your heart desires. 

My suggestions: 
a year supply of Hersheys cookies & cream white chocolate bars, 
a pair of TOMS, 
a mini-food processor, 
a subscription to Food Network and Bon Apetite magazine, 
a hot night on the town with your lover, 
enough guacamole to make you delirious (yet you can't stop eating it), 
that one thing from Williams-Sonoma that you've looked at over 10 times but can't justify buying it,
some mint skinnies, 
enough mentos and diet coke to explode your backyard shed, 

...or as Ryan would probably suggest:

a couple plates of buttery lobster and crab.

either way, 

giveaway ends in 1 week!

You readers seriously are THE BEST.
