I am so, so excited to announce this amazing giveaway!  Breville appliances are a staple in my kitchen, and I’ve never been anything short of thrilled with the quality of their products.  So when they generously offered to sponsor a giveaway on Sugarlaws, I was absolutely thrilled.

So, here’s the deal.  Breville has offered their amazing Five-Quart Stand Mixer to one lucky reader!  To win, you guys have to do two things:

  • First, go to Breville’s Facebook page and “Like” them (and while you’re add it, Like Sugarlaws here!), and,
  • Then, take a look at my food and style archives (here and here) and tell me which of my posts over the last three years was your favorite!  Maybe it’s a recipe you used, or an outfit that made you think about something in your closet a different way, or maybe it was just a little anecdote that made you smile.¬† If you’re not on Facebook and still want to enter, send an email to with your favorite post!

Leave a comment with your favorite post below, and I’ll pick a random winner and announce it on Friday, December 17th! 

And one last thing — I forgot to mention it yesterday, but the lovely DANNIJO designers are offering you guys 10% off any purchase with the code SUGARLAWS at checkout!  Enjoy!

Good luck!

    I really liked the garlic cumin crackers you had a few years back. Throwback, I know :P

  • 2 Gwen // Dec 10, 2010 at 6:04 am

    Most recently, your butternut squash dip inspired me to make that dip for a friend’s bridal shower. Those garlic cumin crackers sound intriguing, too!

  • 3 Maria Malaveci // Dec 10, 2010 at 6:14 am

    Liked Breville & Sugarlaws on Facebook :0)

    I absolutely love, love Chickpeas….and your Artichoke Hummus was simply — Delicious!

  • 4 Niki // Dec 10, 2010 at 6:23 am

    You made pita panini’s a couple years ago and my silly self never thought of makinG paninis with pita (and I’m Greek, everything should be on a pita!) So ever since then, panini’s are always on pitas in my house!

  • 5 LaToya // Dec 10, 2010 at 6:28 am

    This scallop salad looked wonderful and I used the recipe as a base for a similar dish I made over the summer.  I also really liked the Thanksgiving Stuffing recipe.

  • 6 Devorah // Dec 10, 2010 at 6:56 am

    Kale chips!

    I love Kale so making these chips was a bonus, thanks!

  • 7 Lynda // Dec 10, 2010 at 7:06 am

    Your pound cake petit fours ~ so yummy!

  • 8 Natalie // Dec 10, 2010 at 7:15 am

    I can only pick ONE favorite???  That’s nearly impossible with all of your amazing recipes!  I have to go with the cinnamon ice cream – I love it!
    I would also love that mixer!!!

  • 9 Gracie // Dec 10, 2010 at 7:42 am

    “Liked” both FB sites, and TOTALLY have to put my vote in for your Danish Bread recipe.  Beautiful! Thanks for having this giveaway!

  • 10 Meghan // Dec 10, 2010 at 7:44 am

    I love love love this recipe:
    But really, it’s hard to choose!  I have a major chocolate sweet tooth, so I went with the chocolate souffle (I just made it last week in my new ramekins!)

  • 11 Marta // Dec 10, 2010 at 7:56 am

    Amazing giveaway!!!!
    I cannot pick one recipe!! I love them all!!! Some of my favourites, cinnamon blondies, dulce de leche tart, cinnamon rolls, white choc cake… all!!!! Sooo yummy!!! I tried all them!!! ;)


  • 12 Alexandra // Dec 10, 2010 at 8:04 am

    This is by far the best giveaway I’ve seen.  I’m starting my own pastry company, and have been shopping stand mixers for months!

    You have such a great cache of recipes and outfits it’s hard to decide.  But I LOVE the idea of champagne sorbet!  It’s nice to see a recipe that means you don’t have to have an ice cream maker! xoxo

  • 13 Bonnie // Dec 10, 2010 at 8:18 am

    “oven-baked chicken fingers with honey mustard”
    My husband loves these and now makes all kinds of dipping sauces to go with them.

  • 14 Jessie // Dec 10, 2010 at 8:25 am

    All of your posts are adorable, obviously, but a few of my faves: your forever 21 post (I mean, you know how I feel about F21), and food-wise, I’m gonna go with lemon ginger edamame — and let me tell you why — I eat edamame ALL the time, and NEVER considered adding those touches. Great, easy recipe! This is an amazing giveaway by the way — way to go!!! xo Jessie

  • 15 vanessa // Dec 10, 2010 at 9:14 am

    One of my favorite posts was your recipe for Raspberry Squares.  They were amazing…and my girlfriends and I had a blast making them together.  Thank you!!

  • 16 Kelsey // Dec 10, 2010 at 9:35 am

    One of my favorite style posts was the dinner with Kenneth Cole; I love that you got some great recognition for your blog, and I love it when my favorite blogs are “noticed”..I know its a labor of love and I appreciate it.  I was also inspired by your Parmesan cone appetizers; so pretty and versatile, the cones have endless possibilities for different fillings!  Thanks!

  • 17 Beth // Dec 10, 2010 at 9:35 am

    My family loves the nutella ice cream recipe, now a staple at all of our celebrations!

  • 18 Jen // Dec 10, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I really like the butternut squash toasts because its simple , but delicious and pretty healthy! I also make similar spreads with pumpkin. Im just waiting for the day when my skin turns the color of an oompa loompa! haha.

  • 19 Emily // Dec 10, 2010 at 10:03 am

    Um, homemade marshmallows, caramel AND shortbread? In one bar? Yeah, these win.

  • 20 Joanna // Dec 10, 2010 at 10:24 am

    Umm, best giveaway ever! I’ve loved a lot of your recipe posts but I would say my favorite recent-ish post on the blog was from a few weeks ago–“Style–Sheer Blue”–which has definitely encouraged me to play with textures more in my outfits in the weeks since seeing this post!

  • 21 Amy // Dec 10, 2010 at 10:49 am

    I loved your “Style: A Bit Old Fashioned” post. I thought it was so awesome that you took the dress your mom wore to your wedding and completely changed the style. It looked so good on you! You are so creative and inventive when it comes to style; you have definitely helped influence my wardrobe!

  • 22 June // Dec 10, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Awesome giveaway!!

    Definitely your soft pretzels. Those are totally a staple in this house, especially as a kid friendly project. We just made some last week!

    (so you can see us in action:

  • 23 Hailey // Dec 10, 2010 at 11:45 am

    I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for a recipe for homemade pasta. 

    Your whole wheat pasta recipe is an absolute fav, and I’ve used it to make butternut squash raviolis a bunch of times!

  • 24 Tanya R. // Dec 10, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    Wow, this is really cool. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!!! I just “liked” on facebook both Sugarlaws & Breville’s pages as well!!!

    Since I recently just stumbled upon your lovely blog, I can actually say I’ve become quite the fan & look forward to your new posts!!!!

    My favorite post thus far was the the mascara post. It made me laugh and relate in so many ways and want to buy that Dior Mascara ASAP (By the way I’m totally buying one for my mom & mother in law for Christmas this year). We both share two loves: Style & Food and THANK YOU for your lovely posts that just make my day!

  • 25 Carol Bahr // Dec 10, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    I subscribe mainly for the recipes, but enjoy looking at your design/style blogs too. This mixer would be such a blessing as I have been trying to figure out how we could afford one for sometime now. My toddler will eat the carrot coins you posted (that means they are REALLY good!) and I am excited to try the butternut squash dip you posted recently. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • 26 Elizabeth // Dec 10, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    I already like Sugarlaws on FB, but now I like Breville too! I think my favorite post was about your super easy, super delicious sweet potato fries, though I also love your fashion posts! What an amazing giveaway (I like the giveaway posts a lot too)! Thanks for offering this up!

  • 27 janet // Dec 10, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    I’ve made your apple banana cake, so that would be my pick for favourite post. I still can’t believe there’s no butter at all and very so moist and delicious. :)

  • 28 Haley // Dec 10, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    Ooh, I have many favorite recipes from your site!

    1: Smoked paprika hummus
    2: Homemade marshamallows
    3: Carmelized onion pizza

    And I’m excited to try the garlic jam. Keep the great recipes, fashions posts, and giveaways coming!

  • 29 New York Expat in Tokyo // Dec 10, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Thanks to your sponsor for offering such a fab giveaway.. as a baker/pastry student…my kitchen aid went kaput..broken..gone, done…

    So, that would be a super, duper fab christmas gift to try out a new brand, and replace my broken Kitchen aid… and cos we know…mixers are expensive… having not to shell out a replacement would be fab.

    I’m not on facebook though… but I can assure you, if I’m the lucky one, their get major air time.. I mean.. PR… hehe nudge, nudge..

    My fav recipe of yours is this one

    Because your pup is trying so hard to get a bite.. and it looks delish too.

  • 30 Kemberley // Dec 10, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    I like Breville and Sugarlaws on facebook

    My favorite recipe EVER is the nutella ice cream! I have made this over and over and get asked where I got the recipe every time.

  • 31 trang // Dec 10, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    I already like you on facebook and just liked Breville too! 

    My favorite recipe of yours that I have made is definitely the nutella ice cream.  I going to try the pumpkin fudge sometime next week too and that tomatoe cup thing that you did a few months ago.  And I love just about every style that you showed so.  You’re just so darling.

  • 32 Susan // Dec 10, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    I would have to say that your pretzels are out of this world!!!!  They are a hit with my whole family. 

    Also, your style is fabulous!Q!

  • 33 Jennifer E // Dec 10, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    I am really looking forward to the butternut squash dip. I have recently found my love for butternut squash and this dip seems like a great way to quench my love for it!

  • 34 Theresa // Dec 10, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    I liked your post about making Chad’s birthday cake!

  • 35 Erin R // Dec 11, 2010 at 6:41 am

    Asparagus with Roasted Garlic Aioli!  I love all things asparagus, all things garlic, and who doesn’t love mayo?!!

  • 36 Kim A. // Dec 11, 2010 at 9:47 am

    I love your chicken fingers recipe, and more importantly, my two-year-old son does too!

  • 37 kathy // Dec 11, 2010 at 10:39 am

    the rhubarb ice cream recipe has become a spring/early summer staple, and i plan to continue the tradition of giving away cinnamon almonds this christmas – thanks to the recipe you posted last year.

    thanks for the simple and attainable, but delicious, fare.

  • 38 Stephanie // Dec 11, 2010 at 11:56 am

    My top three favorite recipes are your Apple Onion Tarts, Apple Honey and Goat Cheese Tart and your Blue Cheese Gougeres. (I have a thing for cheese and finger foods) :)

    I have taken all of my favorite recipes from your website and compiled them into a recipe book. (which is not a bad idea for you to look into marketing someday!) :D My family definitely doesn’t complain when I experiment in the kitchen with your recipes.

    I’m having a college graduation party next weekend and your tarts, gougeres and quail salad will be present. It would be so wonderful if I won that amazing mixer because I am moving out and getting my own place. :)

  • 39 karmel // Dec 11, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    kale chips!! My neighbor always grows an abundance of kale in her garden and this is a great way to eat it!  Love your blog!

  • 40 Amanda Perez // Dec 11, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    I loved when you went to the new balance party and met some of the designers from project runway.  Love love love that show.

  • 41 Kenya Cramer // Dec 11, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    hmm.ALL of the food posts, but i must say that i love your grecian inspired look post, and your collaborative posts.

  • 42 Veronique Conus // Dec 12, 2010 at 5:22 am

    I LOVE your chocolate souffl√© post!  For starters, you gave a super easy recipe, wonderful instructions and the most appetizing photos!  I’m absolutely making these today.  Also, how cute are your blue ramekins!!

  • 43 jen // Dec 12, 2010 at 6:57 am

    Chocolate souffle! :-)

  • 44 Jennifer // Dec 12, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    I’ve been silently following your bog for a while, and I just love it! The butternut squash dip is my current favorite, but I’m also a fan of all the eggplant dishes I’ve tried off your site too. Mmmm! Thanks so much!

  • 45 Amanda // Dec 12, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Love your blog!!  It was hard, but I will have to go with your delicious caramel cupcakes!  I’ve had a passion for cupcakes for a couple of years now, and when I saw your post on cupcakes, I was thrilled :) Thank you for your yummy recipes!  I always look forward to your new posts!

  • 46 Jessica // Dec 13, 2010 at 9:59 am

    I use your Turkey Ragout recipe every time I want to make a yummy, meaty (and light) sauce. It’s DELICIOUS and we’ve had it with rigatoni, spaghetti, penne… very versatile, n’est-ce pas?

    Happy Holidays!!

  • 47 Emily // Dec 13, 2010 at 10:12 am

    I think my favorite post was of you and your husband (then fiance) in Paris. What could be more romantic? I admit, it made me a bit teary-eyed to read it. Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway!

  • 48 Pam // Dec 13, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Peanut Butter Cup Tuiles!  Such a perfect bite to take to a holiday party

  • 49 Stephanie // Dec 14, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    Without question, your cinnamon rolls! They were the first recipe I ever tried of yours and I must’ve made them about 4 times in that first week alone. I still make them alot…I’m kind of in love with them because they’re just so darn quick :)

  • 50 Joy // Dec 14, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    Ah, I still go back to your soft pretzels:

    I liked Breville on FB, and well, I already liked SugarLaws for a while. ;-)

  • 51 Grace // Dec 14, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    I love your soft pretzels, pumpkin pasta, cinnamon rolls, rasin bread… I’ve made so many things off your blog

  • 54 Jennifer // Dec 16, 2010 at 10:25 am

    My favorite is the Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies recipe. I’ll be baking those pass out to my neighbors. Nothing says Christmas like a good, simple sugar cookie and the flecks from the vanilla bean are the perfect way to add a touch of elegance! Thanks!

  • 55 Julie // Dec 16, 2010 at 11:05 am

    Butternut squash dip – YUM!!! :)

    I also want to try the squash dip soon.

  • 59 Sharon // Dec 17, 2010 at 4:13 am

    I loved the turquoise dress with the black belt you wore in your old fashioned style post.  I’m a current fan of Breville on facebook. 

    Thanks, and Happy holidays to you!

  • 60 Erin // Dec 18, 2010 at 12:28 pm
