Weekend Links: Home for the Holidays Winners!

What a week! Home for the Holidays has been a blast, and I wish I could hand out prizes to each of you out of gratitude for being such loyal, encouraging readers.

I had such fun introducing you to great companies like Breville, Edgeware and Magimix, and highlighting their exceptional products.

It was also great to be able to spotlight a charity close to my heart, and reading through your responses to my Q&A on traditional holiday food was so fun and interesting. I had no idea so many of you enjoy Monkey Bread on Christmas morning! I think I’m going to have to get on that bandwagon…

Giveaway Winners!

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

The winner of the Magimix Food Procesor by Robot Coupe is Melissa D!

The winner of Mandoline Slicer by Edgeware is Anne of Modern Mrs Darcy!

The Winner of The Barista Express from Breville Canada is Heather T!

Congratulations you three! Check your inbox for an email from me today.

A big Thank You and Happy Holidays to everyone who entered the giveaways!!
