My First Giveaway – Cuisinart Mini Prep Food Processor!!

I am so excited that I have reached 1,000 plus followers on Facebook. I have always vowed I would do my first GIVEAWAY when that happened. Well, the day has arrived!!
I thought for some time about what to choose for the GIVEAWAY and have come up with my favourite kitchen appliance. I mention it often in posts because I use it all the time. I can’t imagine how I survived without it. It reduces my preparation time for dinners and baking alike and I feel like smiling when I use it.
And here it is: the Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus 3-Cup Food Processor.the Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus 3-Cup Food Processor
It makes brilliant pesto, grinds nuts, chops vegetables, minces meat, even makes date puree and that’s a tough ask.
I paid over $100 for mine in New Zealand but on Amazon, they are cheaper – you lucky people in the US who have free shipping!

To enter this giveaway, please use the Rafflecopter widget below to answer a question – What is the first thing you would cook with the mini processor? Your answer must be in the comments.

The Giveaway will close at 12am (midnight) New Zealand time on Monday 17th June 2013 (5am pacific time in the US on Monday 17th June 2013). The winner will be chosen at random, announced on this post and notified by email the next day.

  1. [...] sure you remember to enter my giveaway for the Cuisinart Mini-prep processor which you will find here. I once again used it in this recipe tonight. It is truly indispensable. Print Crispy Polenta [...]

  2. [...] And the weekend is over once again. The two free days of the week always seem to disappear like a puff of smoke. Saturdays starts off with the hope that I will get lots done and Sundays arrive all too soon with very little crossed off the to-do list. How can 16-17 waking hours a day seem like two? The answer is beyond me. Yesterday, I read an article by Penelope Trunk here about doing the first thing on your list first and not fluffing around with the minor items. If you don’t cross off the big things, you will have no sense of satisfaction at the end of the day even if you have done several minor jobs. So I have crossed off a big one but got very little else done. I am not sure if the sense of satisfaction was greater than if I now had a shorter list. The next big thing on my list is a cookbook review I have been meaning to do for a while. Maybe this week. Just a reminder that my giveaway of a Cuisinart mini processor finishes in less than a day so if you haven’t entered yet, do so here. [...]
