Trick or Treat…or GIVEAWAY!!


Hello lover butter :)

decadence 052

10 tbsp of butter to be exact!  This is how my day ended, and this is how my day began

 decadence 042

I can’t believe it’s not butter nooks and crannies!

decadence 043

with a side of syrup (one tbsp) – TASTY!!

These minis get super crispy, unlike most gluten free waffles PLUS they’re on sale right now at Whole Foods! 3 for $8 :) Got room in your freezer?

Work was busy today. Tomorrow we’re having a HUGE chocolate event at our store. We’re sampling every flavor of Fair Trade chocolate we sell PLUS the staff (all 2 of us!!) and our volunteers are creating chocolate dishes to share. Which brings us back to the butter:

decadence 053

Flourless Chocolate Decadence from the Joy of Cooking

This is the delicious treat I’m making tomorrow. Lucky for me, I received a package in the mail today that helped me create these little beauties. AND lucky for you, they’re my next GIVEAWAY!!!



Rachael Ray Yum-O Bakeware Set!!

Yum-O Bakeware is Rachael Ray's approach to bakeware...with a creative twist that's all Rachael! With each purchase, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Rachael Ray's charity Yum-O!, which was created to empower kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking.

3 Piece Bakeware Set Includes:

  • 10" x 15" Cookie Sheet
  • 6-Cup Jumbo-Muffin Pan
  • 9" Square Cake Pan


  • Extra wide handles for a confident grasp
  • Comfortable silicone grips add a splash of color
  • Long lasting nonstick aluminum, inside and out
  • Oven safe to 500° F

I know right?!? If you’ve been reading this blog long, then you know that I LOVE Rachael Ray. I’ve always wanted to try her bakeware, so when the kind folks at CSN stores contacted me about doing a giveaway I said HECK YEAH!!! and of course I would need to “quality control” a set for myself! :)

Have you guys ever heard of CSN stores? Talk about stop shop! CSN consists of 200+ stores, carrying everything from counter stools and pub tables to this INSANELY cute Burton backpack!!!(hint hint Parrish hint) Not to mention their BIG variety of Rachael Ray cookware and bakeware! I also really love Rach’s little ramekins!! Too cute.

The pans are just as awesome as I thought they would be! I almost took a picture of my old bakeware… but it’s too embarrassing. Let’s just say they’re gross and leave it at that.

Want a set of your own?

Leave me a comment or send me an email with one product from CSN that you would love (that shouldn’t be hard!!) and you’ll be entered to win.

Want a second entry? Post the giveaway on your own blog, facebook, or twitter and get an additional entry! Just leave a second comment with the link to your post!

A winner will be chosen VIA the random number generator on Friday November 6th at 7pm.

Good LUCK!!

I’ll let you guys know how the decadence turns out and Happy All-Hallow’s Eve!!!

The Le Creuset 5 Qt. Oval French Oven Gift Set in Caribbean!

Dee said...

I am a GF newbie and found your blog quite by accident. It is so informative that I have added it to my list of G-Free blogs so I can keep abreast of updates. Well, if I'm wishing from CSN I would have to go with the Kingston Sovereign Poster Bed in Tamarind by Tommy Bahama Home. King size, please. This could be a marriage saver because our current bed fits the husband with no room left over for moi!

i think awesome! :)

zarpandit said...

your giveaway about it on my twitter :)

Andrea H said...

There are too many things on there that I would love! BUT, a new set of dinnerware, like the two-tone black and white dinnerware sets, would be awesome to replace the second-hand garage sale ones I currently have...

Lauren said...

I would love a Cuisinart ice cream maker!

Iris said...

Fluted nonstick tartlet pans!

Ooh I would love to win! I just found your blog and have marked it a favorite! I was recently diagnosed Celiac and need new GF pans! This would be awesoome! I also love RR!

I love the 10.75" Crêpe Pan in Cobalt by Le Creuset. I've been playing with GF crepes and love the idea of a crepe pan.

Unknown said...

Just added a link to the contest on my blog
Happy Giveaway! CSN had a lot... Chaos loved the selection of dog beds while I oogled more of Le Creuset bakeware....

Allie said...

Can I have the entire website? I would really like one of everything to be quite honest but the thing I need the most is the

Set n' Forget 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker by Hamilton Beach

Madison said...

I'm torn between the Euro Wall-Mounted Spice Rack in Satin Nickel and the 3.5 quart Le Creuset Round Wide Oven in Caribbean. I need a spice rack, but I want the Le Creuset!

MoonGoddess said...

First, I totally want a bite of those waffles! Yum-o is right! :)

As for the contest, which I love this one! Very cool. & I love that you are doing contest now so much.

I am weird in the bunch I know, but I would LOVE the medium outdoor aviary to let the bird out when its warmer so they can get some natural light. Something to save for! ;) (

I also love these glasses... WONDER WHY? lol

suz said...

How do you even choose just one item from that website? I've been itching for some awesome veggie knives so my pick would have to be the 3 piece set by Global Cutlery. One day I will own good knives. One day...

That bakeware looks so cute with those little silicone color splashes too :)

Thanks for introducing me to the CSN store. I would love to get one of these in time for my twins 11th birthday. They want a high tea as the theme so I will be creating lots of GF goodies.

NaTy said...

Wow! Went on the CSN website and loved everything! A product I would love would be the Joseph Abboud - Constellation 4 Piece Place Settings. Gorgeous! Thanks for the chance! My family has been gluten free for 2 years now!

We are in need of a new sofa, so I love the Dream Sofa in Woodsmoke Fabric -- the arm rests look soooo comfy. Thanks for this opportunity. We love RR around here, too ;)
