Wow, what a month! This concludes our Holiday Gift Extravaganza. Thanks to all who played. This was a blast. 😀

So! The first week, Lara from Good Cook Doris won the Nespresso espresso machine. Last week, Elle from Elle’s New England Kitchen won the Cuisinart.

Thanks to everyone who entered to win last week’s prize, a Vita-Mix 5200 in black! Estimated value: $565.


We asked you to share most memorable thing you ever ate, and man, you guys didn’t disappoint. Some meals were delicious, some were downright icky. They all made for great stories.

Don’t believe me? Take a read back through the entries here.

Congrats to the winner!

We wound up with 201 entries in this contest. A random drawing of 1-201 popped out the number 31, which means…

Here’s her entry, which answered the question, “What’s the most memorable thing you ever ate?”

Veggie Girl's Entry I had to check out a little bit about Pure Food and Wine, which sounds just fabulous. I’ll definitely put it on my list the next time I hit the Big Apple.

A big thanks again to the good folks at Vita-Mix, who kindly donated this prize. (Thanks, guys! We love you!)

Liz, shoot me an e-mail with your mailing address at

Thanks so much!

Our Holiday Gift Extravaganza was so much fun, we’re going to do something like it again soon.

Stay tuned!
