75 A BIG Thank You, and a BIG Giveaway

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

I want to thank each and every one of you who voted for Bentobloggy in the About.com's Readers' Choice Awards!  It's an enormous honor to even be nominated, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you SO much.  No matter who wins, it was fun and exciting.

We won't know until next Tuesday the 15th who the official winner is but until then...I have a little surprise which I've been saving for a special occasion, and I think now's the perfect time.

You saw that luscious-looking Tarte Tatin the other day, right?  Well, it was created in a wonderful Le Creuset Tarte Tatin 2 quart enameled cast iron dish from their new (old?) Heritage Collection.  I'm giving away one of these babies in the classic Flame color you see below (my personal favorite, which I collect like a fiend.)  And it's not just for tarts.  You can use it to cook absolutely anything - quiche, pizza, vegetables, you name it. If it fits, it'll cook beautifully on the stove and in the oven.  And how about those cool handles, huh?



HOW TO ENTER

Mandatory Entry:  All you need to do to enter is be a follower of this blog (either by clicking 'Follow' in the top left corner or through Google Friend Connect) AND Bentobloggy's Facebook page.  To enter you must leave a comment below telling me you follow in BOTH places.  Tell me what would you make in your new Tarte Tatin dish if you win.

Want to increase your chances of winning
Here are some additional ways to get entries:

Blog about this giveaway. Leave a comment indicating that you've done so and post the link in a comment for me to see.
Follow me on Twitter. Click to go to my Twitter page.  Leave a comment in this post telling me that you follow Bentobloggy.  
Tweet about this giveaway. Leave another comment telling me you tweeted a link to this giveaway with a link back to your Twitter post.
Add a link to Bentobloggy to your blog roll.  Leave one last comment with the verifiable link, and if you already have Bentobloggy on your blog, just leave a comment saying so!

That's five ways to enter, and five ways to win. Remember to leave a seperate comment for every entry you have. Otherwise, your entries may not be valid.  This contest is open to everyone with a valid ship-to address who lives outside my house.  Void where prohibited and all that jazz.  

You have until Monday, March 14th, by 11:59 PM EST time to enter.

The winner will be chosen using random.org and announced the following day, and the winner has about 48 hours to claim their prize - I reserve the right to choose a new winner after that. 

This contest is sponsored by Bentobloggy (me.)  This giveaway has no affiliation with any of the brands or links listed.


I also would like to take a moment to congratulate my competitors on their nominations.  I'm certain they appreciate their fans as much as I appreciate mine.  Here are their links in order of voting appearance:


Bentobloggy garnered approximately 8,625 unofficial votes.

Thank You!
