Arizona Giveaway!

Long long ago, I promised that I would do a giveaway when I reached 100 “likes” on my Facebook page. I hit that milestone a few weeks ago and have been plotting my giveaway ever since. Now it is time. I present to you…my Arizona Giveaway!

There is a reason behind this themed giveaway. I’m originally a born and bred Midwestern gal from Ohio. I went to live in China for a while and finally came back to the USA for graduate school. I went to undergrad in Ohio and wanted to try an area of the US that was totally different from where I grew up. So I went to grad school in Flagstaff, Arizona. I ended up liking the Southwest so much that I decided I wanted to stick around for another year or so. I started my 2nd Masters down in Tucson, Arizona and that’s where I am right now. In going from Ohio to China to Arizona I learned to appreciate different foods and that’s one of the reasons this blog was born. So this giveaway celebrates the love I have for the tastes of Arizona.

I purchased these lovely items from the Seasoned Kitchen in Flagstaff, Arizona where they carry quite a few impressive products from around the state of Arizona, plus a bunch of BEAUTIFUL kitchen products I can’t afford on a GA’s salary. The coffee is from one of our favorite coffee shops in Tucson, Raging Sage Coffee Roasters, which is a four minute bike ride down the street from our house. Great, right? There’s also a kitschy secret Arizona prize I’ll send along that is not pictured here.

I would like to have just as many folks following my blog via their email as I do on my Facebook page. So all you have to do to enter this giveaway is to sign up to recieve an email subscription of my blog. You don’t have to keep the subscription after the giveaway is over unless you want to. I just want to be invited into your inbox life for a while to see if there’s room for me there. 🙂 If you are already subscribed to my blog, then you can enter the giveaway by posting a comment on this blog entry telling me one thing you’d like to see me attempt to cook this year.

I’m going to pick a winner on Valentines Day evening and will post the winner the next day. So please enter by February 14th, 2012 to be considered.

The Winner will Recieve:
3 Southwestern cookie cutters: cactus, buffalo and chili pepper
RisingHy hot sauce in Habanero Hot
High Desert Farms Prickly Pear Cactus Butter
High Desert Farms Jalapeno Green Jelly
Raging Sage Coffee in Raging Sage Blend
(plus the secret kitschy prize!)

  5. How fun! We love Arizona – lived there for a bit too. 🙂 We haven’t cooked from there yet, so this would be a fun thing to win. Congrats on the 100 likes on FB.

    • Yea…you guys need to choose Arizona soon! Just celebrated 100 years of statehood on Valentines Day…that’s a good reason right? 🙂

  6. Terrific recipes and a giveaway and posted on my birthday! I spotted your comment on Eat, Play, Love and decided to check things out. 🙂

    Of course, it’s always nice to visit a blog from the warmer parts of the N American continent … I’m in the south-west as well. South-western Ontario, Canada that is. 🙂 I love spicy foods however, the spicier the better, so your basket of goodies would find a good home here. Subscribing momentarily.
