More Blogiversary Celebration…A Giveaway with Pampered Chef!

So have you been wondering when we’d get the party going again??? :-) Well, I’m back in the land of the living…for now. I’m on antibiotics and pain meds and waiting til next Friday to have the dental work done. It seems that you you don’t “get numb” if there is swelling, which I had plenty of  and believe me I want to be very numb when I have dental work done!! The swelling is almost gone and I’m mostly off the pain meds. So let’s get the party back on track! Oh, and thank you for all the prayers and well wishes! They are much appreciated!!

On to the giveaway…

My friend and fellow homeschooling Mom, Kim Madren is an Independent Director and Consultant with Pampered Chef and she is going to help us celebrate my one year blogiversary with a giveaway! Kim would like a reader of Keen Inspirations to have one of Pampered Chef’s most popular kitchen tools….

The  Food Chopper


We’ve had one of these for years and  have used it to prepare the toppings for our Friday night homemade pizza. My kids would fuss over who got to chop the olives…they let me chop the onions! :-) It is just the right size to chop what we need and we don’t have to drag out the big food processor!

We don’t make homemade pizza every Friday anymore….but we do make pizza…either fresh from the store or frozen if there’s a great deal with a coupon! We still cut it with the same Pampered Chef Pizza Cutter! We’ve probably had this about 8 years and it’s still going strong!  Here it is after a busy Friday Pizza Night!

Here’s the new updated version…isn’t it sleek looking????

 

I do realize that my  Friday Night Pizza was not on a Pampered Chef Stone…:( I’ve never trusted my family with one living in a basement with concrete floors. Since they are all a little older now, that is something I may have to reconsider! Hmmmm…

The new spring products just came out this week!

Veggie Wedger: Cut veggies and citrus fruits into wedges using one quick motion.

Look what's new! Check out some of our new spring products.

If you’d like to enter the giveaway for the Food Chopper, you will need to go here and check out the new Pampered Chef  products! Then, come back and tell me which one is your favorite! I posted a picture of mine above! That is all that is required! Of course I always give opportunities for extra entries! :) Here ya go:

1. Required entry: Visit Kim’s site and check out the new products. Come back and tell me in a comment which is your favorite.

2. Extra entries: Blog, FB  and or Tweet about the giveaway and come back here and tell me in a separate comment for each way you shared.

3. As always if you are a follower or become one, give yourself an extra entry by telling me so!

Besides wanting a pizza stone, I’ve also fallen in love with this:

The Crinkle Cutter! I have to admit that there was a time when I thought that this is something I would never use….then I was at my friend Lisa’s for dinner and she made homemade french fries with this! They were awesome! She also used it for cutting up fresh veggies for a veggie tray and they looked so dressed up! And it was super easy to use!! I was SOLD!

Sooo, if you are like me and have a few things on your Pampered Chef “wish list”, Kim is offering

*****UPDATE*****

I’ve had some of you write and say that you have put “Keen Inspirations” in as host and nothing is found. I tried it and found that you must put Keen in the first box and Inspirations in the second.

Sorry for the confusion!

I’m finishing up my printables to share tomorrow…and then some more goodies to giveaway later in the week…so let’s keep the party rollin’!

  1. My favorite item that I already have is the citrus peeler, makes it soo easy to peel an orange. Now I whine if I have to peel an orange without one. Also, the Outdoor Party Sticks look very cool.
