Valentines Giveaway from Trudeau: 3 Winners Announced!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

 

 

We don’t make a big fuss about Valentines day, but I can’t not celebrate a holiday that gives me an excuse to cook and eat rich delicious goodies. We actually haven’t gone out to eat on Valentines Day for the past 5 years; following a lack-luster experience at an upscale restaurant where the servers were in bad moods (understandably; since there were a gazillion people there) and they charged for soda refills. I can’t figure out which I was more peeved over.

To inspire you to cook for your sweetheart, or Mom, Dad, sister; best friend (V-day is NOT for Couples only!), I’m giving away some lovely red cooking tools by Trudeau. And the winners are….

Thank you for entering the Valentines Giveaway on NatashasKitchen.com and Congratulations on being our winners:  

#122 Ligia won the Set of red Trudeau knives
#350 Tanya S won the Red Santoku Trudeau knife
#294 Dre won the red spatula and red basting brush from Trudeau
Please check your emails and reply within 48 hours or I will have to draw new winners. Thanks and congratulations again! Happy Valentines Day!

Winner #1 will receive: Trudeau’s All-Steel Resin 5-piece Knife Set ($89.95)
A little bit about this lovely set:
*High carbon stainless steel blades
*Resin coating which prevents food from sticking to the blade
*Acrylic storage/display rack
*Lifetime Warranty
*They sparkle; don’t they?

Trudeau Valentines Giveaway

Winner #2 will receive: Trudeau’s Santoku All-purpose Knife ($29.99)
A little background on this stunner:
*Ceramic blade stays sharp 10 times longer than stainless steel
*Provides maximum sharpness with it’s chiseled single beveled blade
*There’s a carrying case for safety
*Lifetime warranty

Trudeau Valentines Giveaway-2

Winner #3 will receive: Trudeau 10-Inch Silicone Spatula; the spatula I reach for most often in my kitchen ($9.99)… AND so that winner #3 goes home extra happy, you will also receive a Trudeau 10-Inch Silicone Basting Brush (Psst!! There’s a great sale on this brush on Trudeau’s website – $3.99!!)
About the Spatula and Basting Brush(like you needed convincing), they are both:
*Heat resistant to 482˚F or 250˚C
*Stain resistant
*Won’t absorb odors (good thing with all the garlic I employ)
*Dishwasher safe
*5-year warranty

    Hi Natasha!
    I am going all out and will be making a special meal for breakfast and dinner. I’m already preparing for tomorrow! I can’t wait, I always cook a special meal at home and that way it is more personal and special and much more romantic because I get to choose the setting, the decor, the food, drinks and everything! I’ll be posting to Facebook once Valentine’s is over 🙂

I will be making whipped topping and shape some into hearts to add into our coffee mugs. Dinner will consist of Crockpot Chicken Marsala over Fettucini and crab stuffed avocado some salad. Oh, almost forgot, I’ll be making Rose Apple Pies 🙂 Reply

    I honesty don’t like getting anything for Valentine’s day (flowers, chocolates, etc.) I prefer to get it on a random day because I feel it’s more special as a surprise. But for Valentine’s day we do enjoy cooking a special meal together. Last year we had lobster and asparagus. We are planning on preparing something similar but maybe add a juicy rib eye steak and share it. Yum! Reply
