    Happy birthday blog and dog!

    (I would definitely be snagging some organization stuff for my new house with the boy. Or maybe just some fabulous coffee stuff.)

    Firstly, Happy Birthday to Dog and Blog!!!! Your dog is gorgeous. :-) I would hypothetically put the gift money towards a Le Creuset Cast Iron Skillet, fire red of course! I have a small cocette when I got my first “real” job out of grad school and have been wanting to build up my collection ever since.

    It’s a tough choice but I would definitely go with the Emile Henry® Azure Pie Dish-I love the blue and I have absolutely zero pretty pie dishes (I know, it’s terrible). Thanks for doing a giveaway and congratulations!

    Happy Birthday to Honey and your blog! I hear good things were born this time of year ;)

    I think I would have to go with the Italian Ceramic One-Handled Soup Bowls – first thing I would make is your french onion soup! But I also make a killer chicken tortilla soup these would be perfect for! Plus, I just love the idea of making little individual casseroles in these types of things – so many ideas!

    Happy Birthday again, blog and dog!

  21. Laura posted on September 21, 2011 at 2:42 pm (#)

  28. Sis. Boom. posted on September 21, 2011 at 4:31 pm (#)

    LOL. I would buy a tart pan because lets face it, you can’t have enough tart pans. And I always say ‘yes’ to the impulse olive oil there.

    Happy birthday to the blog and the dog! That is a great picture, he looks so happy! I’ve never checked sur la table before, but theres so much I’m finding on there. I could make that fifty dollars go a long way: a knife sharpener, silicone oven mitts, a balloon whisk, and a new mandoline!

  47. Darina N. posted on September 22, 2011 at 1:46 pm (#)

    Hi Michelle! I found your blog a few months ago by searching a recipe for melon and prosciutto on google and now I’m following it almost everday! Since I never was brave enough to leave a comment on any of your great ideas and postings I thought now it’s the best time to do that! So..Happy Birthday to your blog and of course to your dog!! And I think it’s a lovely idea to present someone with a voucher for sur la table on YOUR blog-birthday ;) But I’m from Germany..so I’ll abstain from your “special offer”, because I don’t even know if sur la table delievers to Germany =D Nevertheless..just for the fun of it..I would buy the “Cherry Dots Vintage-Style Apron” because it’s soo cute =) By the way, I already liked you weeks ago on facebook! Kindest regards, Darina

  60. Anna posted on September 23, 2011 at 2:38 pm (#)

    Happy birthday! There are too many things I’d want, but there’s a little charlotte pan that I’d been eyeing for much too long that would probably get snagged were I to win.

  61. Lacy posted on September 23, 2011 at 3:03 pm (#)

    Happy Birthday to your blog! and your dog! I seriously love Sur La Table, I pass by the one near my apt and look longingly through the windows at everything in there! I’ve really been looking into getting sousvide equipment and while 50 won’t cover it, it would definitely be a HUGE help!! :)

  62. Carolyn posted on September 23, 2011 at 3:16 pm (#)

    I heart Sur La Table. Every time I pass it at the mall, I see a zillion things in the window that I want. I have no idea what I’d use the gift cert on, I want so much!
    Happy Birthday to your DOGGIE! And Happy Birthday to your Bloggie as well ;)

  63. WhatsForDinner posted on September 23, 2011 at 3:49 pm (#)

    Happy Birthday! If I won the money I would put it towards a new knife. I have one knife that I use for everything. I do have other knives, they just don’t work as good as my beloved knife. I could really use another good one so that I am not constantly washing and sharpening over and over again.

  64. Kimber posted on September 23, 2011 at 4:36 pm (#)

    Yay! Happy Birthday Pup! Every year for my dog’s birthday I make him a lemon cake … he goes nuts for it! And every ‘Howl’aween I bake these pumpkin dog bone treats for him and all his friends … yes I know, I need to get a child! Haha! Congrats on your Blog’s birthday and what an awesome blog it is! I love Sur la Table, if I could buy anything in there I think I would get a pestle and mortar, I’ve been wanting one of those for awhile now! Anyways, Happy Friday!

  65. Jes Armstrong posted on September 23, 2011 at 6:22 pm (#)

    I just got my first very own apartment so I would use the gift certificate to buy all of the little necessities. Baking dish, cheese grater, cupcake pan, you name it, I need it :)

Happy Birthday to Honey and to your blog! How exciting! I would love to win the Sur La Table gift card. I would definitely buy a pretty cake stand as I love to bake and really need one ASAP. Hope I win! I’m going to your FB page next.
