TLC's 1st Year... and 1st Giveaway!


Happy birthday, Learning Curve!

Can you believe it's been one whole year since we started this thing? I know it sounds cliche, but it really does feel like only yesterday that I sat at my kitchen table, eating homemade apple pie and posting my first recipe here. For months I had religiously followed a few of my (now ever-growing list of) favorite blogs, drooling and dreaming and wondering if I had what it takes to write a successful blog myself. And here we are, 365 days and 82 recipes later, with an even deeper love of food and a new-found appreciation for the amazing food blogging community.


So, to commemorate this happy occasion, I have decided to host The Learning Curve's first-ever giveaway!

Today we are giving away Good Cook's Red 8-Piece Ceramic Bakeware Set!

I received this set as a wedding gift, and it has quickly become my favorite bakeware! It's sturdy and distributes heat evenly for perfect cooking... plus look how purdy it is in that red color! I've used the rectangular casserole for all kinds of things, from stuffed shells to brownies, and found that the size is perfect and that nothing - hear me, NOTHING - sticks to it. And somehow apple pie just tastes better coming out of a pretty red pan. :) Trust me, you guys are going to LOVE this set!


So here's how to enter...

1. First, leave a comment on this post telling me what you'd first plan to bake in your new shiny bakeware!
2. For an additional entry, "Like" The Learning Curve on Facebook, and leave another comment back here telling me that you did so!
3. For another entry, "share" the giveaway with your Facebook friends, and leave another comment back here telling me that you did!


And the details....

1. The giveaway will be open until 5pm on Sunday, November 20. Once the giveaway has closed, I will use one of those random number generator thingies to pick a random person from this page as our winner!
2. I will contact the winner via the email given to leave your comments, and I will get your shipping address at that time. I will also post the winner here.

So get commenting, and tell all your friends! 


And thanks, as always guys, for being such awesome readers. You rock. :)
