December Giveaway!

Happy December you all!

I'm not a big fan of November. Its main redeeming factor is that it's cozily sandwiched between what are, in my mind, the two unrivalled months of the year: October and December. But now that we've kissed November goodbye, I am ready to get into full-on, no holds barred, crafty, bakey, warm & fuzzy, sipping egg nog by the fire mode. Bring. It. On.

This month I have two rather lovely giveaways for you. Since one sponsor could only ship to Canada, and the other to the US, I decided to have both giveaways side-by-side. So at the end of the month, there will be a Canadian winner and an American winner.


So for the Americans in the house, this month's giveaway is a set of 3 certified organic micro-green sprouting kits (arugula, radish, and curly cress) from Hooks & Lattice.

These darn cute terracotta kits contain everything you need to grow your own salad through the colder winter months! Who needs lettuce shipped from a gazillion miles away when you can grow your very own baby greens right on your window sill? 

I wrote a post about growing your own winter salad micro-greens a couple winters ago, and this was the video that went with it (to give you a little taste of how these kits work):





Here's how to enter the sprouting kit giveaway:

As for my fellow Canadians, the giveaway is a hot-off-the-presses copy of the über sleek and sexy Kinfolk cookbook! Can I get a wooooot? This is an exquisite book full of dreamy photos. It will take you into the homes of Kinfolk friends who share their favourite recipes. My recent squash and sage biscuits were inspired by the sweet potato biscuit recipe in this book. 


Here's how you enter the draw:

Bonne chance everyone!

  3. My cousin used to live in Hawaii and stayed on a microgreens farm! She would send us a box every Christmas... and they were heaven. Sadly, she is back on the mainland, so growing my own would be a good substitute!

  10. Hello Aube,

    I have really been enjoying your blog and your videos. I discovered it through the Devour Film Fest and I'm excited to be moving to the Annapolis valley in the summer!

    All the best.

  11. Oooh.. the Kinfolk Table! I love the concept of eating simple meals with others. I have a print in my dining room that says: "We are meant to eat together". So true!

  12. I love the idea of organic micro-green sprouting kits. Fresh greens in the dead of winter.

  13. I'd like to win because I could use some new ideas for our weekly small potlucks.

  14. I would love to win this because I am going through lot of dental problems and can't really eat salads any more. Micro-greens are much softer so I will be able to enjoy salads once again if I win this. Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity.

  15. I would love to win because every time I buy expensive microgreens at the store, they go bad faster than I can use them. This way, I could only pick the amount that I'd want to use!

  16. That book is gorgeous! I'd love to win a copy to help me come up with some yummy recipes for holiday gatherings.

  17. I would love to win either of these to try some new recipes!

  18. I would love to win, because I hate buying anonymous wilted lettuce at the grocery store, and the Farmer's Market is not enough to supply the frequency with which I love microgreen salads. Coming out of Devourfest, as well, I've fallen in love with Kinfolk and their whole atmosphere.

  19. I'm trying to eat as healthy as possible and this would help.

  20. I absolutely love your sage and squash biscuit recipe! So lovely! I would love to win the book so that I can see more!

  21. I'm a big fan of microgreens in restaurants, but have never tried to grow my own. What a treat!

  22. I'm starting a little homestead in my apartment and feel this would be the perfect size!

  23. I was just wondering what the new Kinfolk cookbook was like...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would love to win the Kinfolk cookbook, as I do not currently own any cookbooks at all, and I figure I should start my collection in style!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would totally love to win the new Kinfolk cookbook! It is SO HARD for me to cook for small groups of people! I end up having to eat the same leftovers for over a week and by then it feels like torture - which is not what food should be - but it's better than waste I suppose....

  26. I think it looks like a beautiful book. I would love surprise my own kinfolk.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would love to look through this cookbook! I write a gluten free sustainable cooking blog and am dying to take a look through this beautiful cookbook for some Kinfolk inspiration! Happy Holidays :)

  28. I would love to win either of these, as I am half of my time in the kitchen, looking for new ideas + better ways to feed the family.

  29. Black Thumb+Self Contained Kit=Maybe I could grow something :)

  30. I would love to win this beautiful book. I would give it to my friend Alison. Despite her recent battles with a rare illness, she continues to be the queen of hosting small gatherings and makes the most loving food. And she is a lover of cookbooks and new recipes!

  31. I would love to grow micro greens at home, except my cats would just eat them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. everything I grow in my summer garden is for my salad bowl, so this would bring me bliss in the winter!

  33. That book looks incredible! I know my sister in law would be sooooooooo happy to have it, so I would love to win that book to give to her :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I LOVE microgreens and put them on everything for added freshness. This kit would be perfect for wintertime!

  39. I just want to say thank you for your awesome blog, I love it and you've taught me a lot this year! I taught my father how to make a no knead bread, it was great being able to teach him something for a change. Thanks again, keep up with the great work and wishing you the best for 2014!
