Whiskey Glazed Carrots and a Kitchen Aid giveaway


Carrots are in season right now.

In my younger years I don’t think I liked them that much. Come to think of it, I don’t think I was into vegetables at all. Some I loved like fresh corn and lima beans. Others like canned green beans not so much.  I am still not keen on canned green beans. 

Anyway, these carrots are delicious. I was working on a Saint Patricks day post and had a bit of extra Irish Whiskey and thought I would make this. 

I have also teamed up with a few fellow bloggers and pooled our resources to giveaway a Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Yes, you heard me right, a Kitchen Aid.

So here are the particulars you need to know to be eligible to win.

The giveaway is for a 5 QT Artisan mixer in the color “Caviar” which is a metallic black.  There is no choice of color.  

Mixer is equipped with stainless steel bowl, flat mixing paddle, dough hook and wire whisk attachment.

Winner gains an entry for each option.  There are 14 options–which include liking Facebook pages, following on Pinterest, etc.  Each of these options must be fulfilled for a valid entry. Please make sure to read the Terms & Conditions.  The link to the Terms & Conditions is at the bottom of the Rafflecopter app.

For purposes of validating the winner, we are asking that you set your Facebook “LIKES” to public until a winner is chosen as this is the only way we can validate that you liked the specified pages if we are not Facebook friends and you have set this privacy to other than “public.”  If we cannot validate, we must pick an alternate winner.  We hope everyone understands.
