Pick Your Prize Giveaway - Choose between a KitchenAid Artisan Mixer OR a Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker OR a $300 Amazon gift card!

Hi friends! Five years ago today, I hit publish on my very first blog post. The recipe was for Italian Vegetable Soup and at that time, I barely even knew what a blog was. I just wanted an easy way to share a few favorite family recipes with my family. As it turns out, Barefeet In The Kitchen has become a fun way to share recipes with people all over the world.

Blogging has changed our lives in so many ways, and I have you awesome readers to thank for so much of that! Who knew that I’d spend the next five years connecting with countless new friends online and learning to cook so many amazing foods?! There are almost 1400 recipes on this website now and we’ve cooked and eaten every single one of them.

To say THANK YOU for being the awesome readers you are, I am sharing a PICK YOUR PRIZE GIVEAWAY with you today: One lucky winner will get to choose between a KitchenAid Artisan Mixer OR a Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker OR $300 Amazon gift card!

Maybe you’re a baker and that mixer is calling to you with any number of cookies, cakes, and breads begging to be made, maybe you’ve been watching as I churned out 60 different ice cream recipes over the past few years and you can’t wait to get your hands on the fancy ice cream maker, or maybe a shopping spree is your idea of the best thing ever and you can’t wait to pick out a whole new collection of your favorite kitchen tools!

    Comgratulations on your success. Love your recipes! I guess, I would have to say I could really use a Kitchenaid. I do most of my baking by using a whisk since my mixer broke. Thank tou for this giveaway.

    First of all.. Congratulations on your 5th year anniversary!! Thank you so much for so many great recipes.. If I were to be blessed to win, I would choose the Kitchen aid mixer- as I need all the help I can get w/ my baking !! Thank you for this opportunity.

    Love your blog and recipes! Would love the gift certificate – my son just moved into his own apartment and is juggling college and an internship. Would love to give him this to outfit his kitchen – he loves to cook!

    Congratulations on your 5-year anniversary. I just found you about a year ago but I keep going back in your archive and find more great recipes. I would like the gift card. I have lots of kitchen items on my wish list that I can't justify buying unless I won the lottery (or a contest). 🙂

    Happy 5 years!! 🙂 That's a tough question since I can be a tad indecisive lol, but I think I would pick the $300 Amazon. So I can buy things to finish my bathroom. Thanks for the chance!
