My BlogHer Food Swag Supa Dupa Giveaway!

*Updated* The winners are Suldog and Kiva! Read the Supa Dupa announcement here!


This morning I finished eating the last of my box of Nature's Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola. Oh. My. God. I loved the stuff! I will be looking for it again. I know it sounds way too healthy to actually taste good. But it really does. I highly recommend it.

The granola was one of many foods and products given away at the BlogHer Food conference. I almost cannot even comprehend the amount of swag. I gave more than half of it away to two friends of mine that I met up with on Sunday. I'll write about that soon. One piece in particular was rather amusing. Especially considering so many people returned home by plane.

One guess. Yup! A big knife! Someone already tweeted about cutting herself with it. It would have been great to keep, but I didn't feel like explaining it to airport security.

And speaking of being on the cutting edge of things... Hah! Sorry. It's rare that I see a pun that I don't like. It was pretty cool to already have Starbucks VIA Ready Brew at home the day of its debut. I liked it too.

Who knew that instant coffee would ever come back? I found another reason to keep it on hand too. For baking. Last night, I used it in place of instant coffee granules for the famous Chocolate & Zucchini Cake. I used some of my Scharffen Berger cocoa powder too. I cannot believe all the chocolate that they gave us! Wow, what a treat!

And when I baked my cake last night, I used my nifty new Fagor digital kitchen timer. It even counts down the seconds! I was giddy just setting it. Maybe it was the endorphins rushing through my body because of all the chocolate. Well either way, I'm pretty happy with all the cool new stuff.

But you know what? At a certain point, it's just too much. How much stuff does one person need? So I've decided to do my biggest giveaway yet. It's SO big that it will be in two parts. It's Supa Dupa!

Part 1 is for kitchen stuff. Part 2 will be for cookbooks.

Supa Dupa Giveaway Part 1

Here are the two prizes that you can win: a $25.00 gift card for CHEFScatalog.com or a Cuisinart 4-Cup Chopper/Grinder.

The Rules: All you need to do is to leave a comment here letting me know that you want to win. You need to be at least 18 years of age and a U.S. resident. I will do two random drawings for two winners.

If you want an extra chance at winning, you can tweet, facebook, or blog this contest for additional entries. Just come back here and leave the urls for each of them in a new comment. I do check! Please also make sure that I have an email address where I can reach you.

The contest is open for two weeks. The deadline is Saturday, October 17, 2009, which is also the Sweetest Day.

Thank you to all the Sponsors of BlogHer Food '09. Also a huge thank you to Jaden of Steamy Kitchen, Elise of Simply Recipes, and Ree of The Pioneer Woman, who threw the amazing after-party at Tropisueño. There was a ton of food, great music, dancing, conversation, and even more swag! You ladies know how to throw a party!

*Updated 10/11/09* Thanks for all the comments everyone! Best of luck to all of you!

*Updated 10/20/09* The winners have been picked! There will be an announcement very soon!

Both giveaway prizes sound wonderful - and since I couldn't attend the conference, it's great to hear about your experiences and see what awaits next year.
