Kerrygold Give Away

I got to thinking, after posting all those odes to Kerrygold for the contest, that it would be wrong of me not to give you an opportunity to experience #butterlove for yourself.  The folks at Kerrygold have been very good to me and it’s only right that I pay that goodwill forward.  Besides, I think part of finding grace in everyday life is making the conscious decision to share that which you have with others.

So, two lucky folks will each receive:

  • One store coupon redeemable for the Kerrygold product of your choice…as in FREE y’all.
  • One eco-friendly reusable shopping bag featuring the fine Kerrygold logo.

While the folks at Kerrygold are not sponsoring this give away, I did receive these items from them at various blogging events.  But let’s be honest, the folks at Kerrygold could pass me on the street and we’d never recognize each other…unless they were decked out in that happy gold foil and I had #butterlove tattooed on my forehead.

Want a chance to win some #butterlove?  Leave a comment on this post no later than midnight on 20 November 2011 to enter the “sweepstakes”.  Be sure to include a valid email address in the comment form so I can contact you in case you’re one of the two randomly selected winners.

Sadly, it’s a litigious world y’all, so here’s the necessary long form, legal mumbojumbo, disclaimery type language:

  • The Give Away period shall commence at 8am on 16 November 2011.  Entries must be received no later than midnight on 20 November 2011.  Any entries received after that time will be disqualified.

  • Each prize consists of: one manufacturer’s coupon for the Kerrygold item of your choice (approximate retail value $5); one reusable grocery bag.
  • Odds of winning will be determined by the number of eligible entries.
  • Bon Appetit Hon is not responsible for entries that are not received due to technical error.
  • Two winners will be randomly selected using Random.org on 21 November 2011 and will have five days to respond via email to claim their prize and provide shipping information.
  • All prizes will be awarded and shipped via USPS.  Bon Appetit Hon is not responsible for loss of prize by USPS.

Give It Away. Give It Away. Give It Away, Now.

 

At what point is it ok to decide that something you thought would be a perfect gift really wasn’t?  Here it is, nearly 365 days after I received Cookwise for Christmas and honestly, that book is collecting some serious dust on my bookshelf.  I don’t get it.  I always enjoyed it when Shirley Corriher made a cameo appearance on Good Eats and I was certain that Cookwise would open a whole new understanding of food science to me.  So I read it cover to cover.  And none of it clicked for me.  None.  Nothing.  Nada. I’m convinced this has nothing to do with Miss Shirley and everything to do with me.  Wow, I never thought I’d use the “it’s not you it’s me” line to break up with a cookbook.

So in the spirit of giving, I’d like to find a new home for Miss Shirley.  One where she is appreciated and her knowledge of food science is regularly called upon.  Or at least called on more than once a year.  Want to win my copy of Cookwise?  Just leave me a comment below with the one thing at the top of your holiday gift list this year.  One commenter will be chosen via Random.org at noon on December 20th to receive an little extra holiday cheer.

The give away is open to residents of the US and Canada and the book will ship via USPS Media Mail.
