Giveaway: Win VIP Tickets to Taste of Home Cooking School!

I love to create adventure in the kitchen. I get cookbooks from the library, from friends, I ask for them as gifts and of course find all sorts of recipes online! I have always enjoyed a good cooking show (tho they make me HUNGRY!)

I am very excited to share that I was blessed BIGTIME with two VIP tickets to our local Taste of Home Cooking School at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana this coming Thursday October 6th! I get to get the star treatment with yummy food and a tour of the cooking stage and I get to meet Eric Villegas the Culinary Specialist for the night!

He has a cooking show and focuses on LOCAL food which is right up my alley. I'm also getting a big swag bag (recycled & reusable too which I appreciate!)with $50 worth of coupons and goodies and a subscription to the Taste of Home magazine.

Can you tell I am stoked? I am taking my husband John with me...he really wanted to go so it will be a date night extraordinaire! I was asked to share about the show with my readers and to pass along the other pair of tickets and I am delighted to do so. You may have already read the Taste Of Home magazine.

You can go too! I was given two pairs of VIP tickets (selling for $95 EACH!!!) I get to keep one and I get to give one away, isn't that awesome? I will pick one winner for the other pair of tickets Tuesday morning October 4th randomly from the comments. Here is how to enter to win:

Oh my, I personally love to cook holiday dinners. Turkeys, ham, special chicken, all the fancy side dishes, and of course FABulous desserts. But for the everyday? Crockpot chicken, or perhaps a beef roast with veggies. And I LOVE the Taste of Home Cooking school!! I went to one two years ago and it was SUCH a blast!

John told me about leaving a comment for a chance for the tickets and I found a friend who would love to go with me so please put my name in the hat! I've got a few Taste of Home cookbooks and I love everything that I've made from them.

There is NO way I could pick just ONE recipe, but his catch phrase,"Think global, but buy and eat local!" definitely catches my eye (and I totally agree!) and will have me checking back on his page for more info! :)

WINNER! Theresa Krause AND MaryBeth both win tickets to Taste of Home. (I had the wrong date for an Open House for Mothers and More where I am saying a few words and cannot skip. Bummer for me, but great for you gals!) I will contact you both to coordinate ticket drop off. CONGRATULATIONS and thanks to all entrants for reading my blathering blog! Your comments make me want to keep on typing!
