Exciting Giveaway - F & A's first ! - CLOSED

I received an email from CSN, (an online retailer based in Boston) the other day. This was a coincidence as I was browsing through some products in their stores, looking for a gift idea for a elderly couple celebrating 50 years of wedded bliss !!  Seated on my brand new bar stool in my warm kitchen, I went through their email wherein they asked me if I was interested in hosting a giveaway on my blog. What was the giveaway ?!! A Rachel Ray "Bubble & Brown" 2 piece stoneware baker set in Blue to be shipped to one lucky winner in the US or Canada within 48 - 72 hrs. after the order is placed.

I loved the idea; it seemed so exciting. Besides this will be Flavours & Aromas's first giveaway and with Easter fast approaching; there will be a lot of baking and roasting in all your homes. Anyway, all those who aren't celebrating Easter but love baking can enhance their kitchens with this set. The dishes can also be used to serve salads or dips. Yummy !!

Now how does all this work . Let's see.

All you lucky people must leave a comment on this post, mentioning your blog url or email address so that I can contact the LUCKY winner and let him/her know. Once I get your name and address, I will inform CSN who will ship this gift to you.  CSN is now one of the top 3 online US retailers of home and office goods with 200 online stores.
