Blendtec Blender Giveaway – My biggest giveaway ever!! ****CONTEST CLOSED-WINNER ANNOUNCED****

This blog has brought me so much happiness! I have become a better cook and I have met some of the most amazing people who love food and cooking as much as I do.  I have also been sent some fantastic products.  How cool is that??

Blendtec Blender Giveaway - My biggest giveaway ever!! ****CONTEST CLOSED-WINNER ANNOUNCED****

I was recently sent the most amazing blender I have EVER used by Blendtec.  It is extremely powerful and has so many capabilities.  You can make anything from milkshakes, smoothies, soups, sauces, hummus, pasta dough, pizza dough, mayonnaise and you can also grind meat, chop nuts and cheese.  I was really excited that they also sent me the Twister Jar attachment which makes ice cream, nut butter, pesto, and pie crust just to name a few things.  I’ve made this smoothie and this smoothie so far, which my kids LOVED, and I plan on trying several recipes from the recipe book as soon as possible.

It not only is a powerful blender, it’s simple to use and cleans up easily.  It also looks great too.  This blender will be kept on my countertop because I plan to use it A LOT.

The generous people at Blendtec are offering my readers their very own Blendtec Blender Classic Wildside, the Twister Jar attachment, and Fresh Blends Recipes Book for a total value of over $595.00!!!  You get to choose what color of blender you would like – Black, White, or Red.  I chose the black one and it’s a beauty!
