3yearanniversary_2



Some Kitchen Stories is three years old this week!

GIVEAWAY

We want to celebrate by giving you free stuff. This year, we’re doing something a little different. We’re going to offer three SURPRISE prize packages. Comment below to enter for a chance to win one of them! We’re giving away two, one from me and one from Nicole.

Each package will be filled with fun stuff that fits the theme (stuff you’ll actually want, we promise) with locally sourced products from our homes (Chicago and Maine) and one delicious baked good, baked personally by us as a thank you to you. Think of it as a delicious care package from a stranger who loves food and food gadgets as much as you do.

You could win one of these babies:

Brunch Party

A loaf of delicious cake-bread (banana! chocolate banana! zucchini! lemon poppyseed!)

An assortment of items that will be perfect for your next fancy breakfast party.

Dessert Party

Cookies or Bars (winner’s choice)

Fun stuff for your dessert table! Could be syrups for sundaes, cute parfait glasses, zippy serving ware.

Midnight Snack

A candy or savory treat, just for you, baked by us.

And yet more candy and savory treats. Treats of all kind! Perfect for hiding away and snacking on in the dark when all of your loved ones are asleep.

Dates: Thursday, March 20 to Thursday, March 27, 2014 (contest ends 12am ET on the 28th)

How to Enter: Just leave a comment below with a character name (I always need more character names).

Selecting a Winner:  Winners (2) will be selected on Friday March 28, 2014 using random.org, a random generator. The winner will be notified by email and will have until Monday to respond. If the winner doesn’t respond to the winning notification email, another winner will be chosen.

Boring/Horrible Disclaimers: You must be 18+ to enter. We will only be shipping within the continental United States.  SKS reserves the right to disallow comment submissions for the following reasons:

  • Any rude or obscene comments will not be approved. (But I will laugh at them silently before deleting them.)
  • All spam comments will not be approved. (Again, some of these make me laugh. But they will not be approved.)
  • No purchase is necessary to enter. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning. I’m not even sure what you would purchase to win, honestly. Wait, was someone going to send me money to increase their chances? Maybe I should rethink this disclaimer… (aw, happy three year anniversary to you, snarky contest disclaimers!)

So what are you waiting for? Go win free stuff!!!

    Wow, this is such a cute give away idea! I love looking up character names and meanings (maybe a little too much), so some of my favorites right now are Bryony, Margo, Ewan, and Leonidas. Believe it or not, I met a little boy named Leonidas recently, which I thought was awesome! I also think Humperdinck is a great villain name, but it’s probably not very versatile.

    Girl character names: Fiona, Violet, Paige, Giana, Meghan, Natalie
    Boy character names: Cole, Benjamin, Jacob, Aaron, Patrick, Kevin, Gabriel

    Some of these were runner up baby names from when my son was born (Alec, who would also be a great character name, IMO.) Love your website and so does everyone I share it with. Congrats on doing such a great job for three years!!!

      Aw thank you Mitzie! That’s a good idea, maybe I should just buy a baby book… but this is way more fun. 😉

    Happy anniversary!

    For name ideas, I’m visiting the family tree. My grandma’s name was Earlene and her twin brother was Earl. The other two sets of twins: Eleanor and Leanore, Jeanette and Antoinette. I’ll spare you from sharing the names of their other 7 siblings.

    Happy 3 years with many ahead.Your posts always give me ideas and your writings are great with my morning cup of joe. I never had any children and am quite alright with that, but the names I always liked were Lilian, Vivian, Laurel and Reese. Here’s to many more years!!

      I just remembered something funny that I want to share about the name Reese. At the time that I thought this be a really cool name for a guy, my current boyfriend was Italian with the last name Luisi. Reese Luisi didn’t sound bad. But then we were talking about how kids can be mean with names and “Greesy Reesey Luisi” came to mind. LOL No kid should be set up like that.

    What a fun idea, and congrats on three years! I’m a total lurker, but your blog is one of the few that I always read, because I lovelovelove your stories. ^_^

    I’m not much of a writer, but I did dabble a few years back, and one name that I loved was “Keevah”. I never portrayed that character as well as I would have liked, and I’d love to see what you can do with her!
