Barefeet In The Kitchen would not be the same without each and every one of you!

I’m giving away a $100 gift card to the store of the winner’s choice, just to say thank you! Thank you for being the awesome people that you are. Thank you for coming back and reading every day. Thank you for sharing the recipes with your friends and families. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Giveaway ends on Wednesday, November 6th at 10pm PST. Entry is limited to US residents only. I wish I could include everyone, but the legalities involved with international giveaways prevent me from doing that. GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED and winner has been notified.

    Thank you for your wonderful site. I get inspired by many of the recipes I see and have made a few. It seems you get in a rut now and then and it is refreshing to see some new ideas for dinner that we have never had or tried before. Please keep on posting as myself and family are grateful.

    Once upon a time (it's been years now) I would Google search recipes. Barefeet in the Kitchen changed that. I always check out the recipes you've posted for recipes, beautiful pictures, dreams of my own future cooking skills, equipment reviews, for your different combinations of gf bases and tried and true tested, family approved recipes. Thanks, Mary! [email protected]

Tells me your recipes (mostly the dessert ones, LOL) are easy to follow and not being that experienced at cooking – everything always turns out great!

    Earlier this year, I was introduced to your site by a cousin who shared your recipes that she had tried on FaceBook. I immediately loved the site! So many great recipes. I don't make all of them, but those I have tried have become favorites and will be a part of my "standard" menus (and in some cases will replace my "standard" recipes). Thank you for all the work you do to bring this to us. .

    I am on your facebook page weekly… Sundays to plan my suppers for the week. My friends all think I'm nuts… but with a career outside the home it's really hard to come home and think of something… then realize you don't have all the stuff to make it and you find yourself (putting your bra back on) and going to the store (or bribing your 16 year old to do it for you) to make up the void. I, however, have the meals planned out and "pictured" in my mind! (somehow they never look as good as yours) This leaves me more time to spend with my family because every minute counts because every minute goes faster the older my kids get. ๐Ÿ™ – Kelly ([email protected])

They also taste amazing.
