Home for the Holidays 2010 Giveaway: The Winners!

Whew. What a week!

I had such fun introducing you to great companies and giving you a chance to win their exceptional products. Home for the Holidays has been a blast, and I wish I could hand out prizes to each one of you, out of thanks for being such loyal, encouraging readers. Sadly, I’m not Santa – or Oprah.

Now, I’m as anxious as you are to announce the winners of the five giveaways that Simple Bites featured over the past few days, so let’s get right to it without further ado…

1. Scanpan CTX 5-Piece Cookware Set from Sur la Table

The winner of the Scanpan CTX 5-Piece Cookware Set is: Ashlee!

It will indeed. Enjoy your new pots and pans, Ashlee!

“I cook/ bake weekly, if not daily with my kiddos! My middle daughter in particular is ALWAYS in the kitchen with me. I can’t wait ’til she’s old enough to REALLY put her to work. ;)
