Giveaway from America’s Test Kitchen!

August 14, 2012

Sunshine on a plate!

The Pietanic 

It’s The Pietanic!! Your heart will go on!

Because finally!! The long anticipated pie post on America’s Test Kitchen’s Blog, The Feed! Is up and awesome!

You  remember don’t you?  I, and my humble blog, won a free trial scholarship to the online cooking school. America’s Test Kitchen Online Cooking School. You might recall the deal was: I would receive a scholarship if I agreed to bake apple pies utilizing their courses and blog about them for their blog called, “The Feed.”  COOL right? Yes! COOL!

It was so much fun for me. I learned making pie is a science and a craft. More importantly it is an art! Art is ALWAYS harder than it looks. But I swear this was pretty dang easy. (Once I relaxed and got my pie mojo!) Near, far, wherever you are– you can go and read all about  my process and see all of the pies and the surprise delight that came from them!


You can make pretty pies too! As a matter of fact, I WANT you to make pies, and pasta, and eggs and meat!  So much so that I am giving away (with the help of ATK Online Cooking School) to TWO lucky winners- a 60 day trial to the cooking school!  Yep, you can go back to school and have total access to the course catalogue and all the lessons for 2 whole months! You know you need this! It’s already back-to-school, Memorial Day  LABOR DAY* is coming, and before you know it it’ll be Thanksgiving! It is TIME to get your cooking mojo flowing! It’s time to get those questions answered, and take your skills to the next level- whatever that level is!

Here are the details on how to enter to win:

1. follow me on twitter AND leave your Twitter handle along with your desire to be entered to win- in the comment section here.
I will want to follow you back and put your name in the giant hat!

Click “like” on my Facebook page! Poor ‘ole thing, it needs the love!

Go check out “The Feed.” If you do nothing else, do this. It is so amazing! I learn so much from this blog! You’ll thank me for this. I subscribe to their blog. I love it that much.

It’s that easy. I will pick a name at random out of the giant hat at the next full moon! (August 31) and two lucky winners will be on their way to amazing delicious cooking!
Go on!  Tell me, do you want to go back to school- right in your own kitchen?  What do you want to learn more about cooking?

* thanks Doug, those end of summer vs beginning of summer holidays confuse me!

    I would llove the opportunity to do this. My daughter has been a challenge to cook for and I need to learn how to cook all over again.

    Funny, as I was just looking at online cooking schools like this a few weeks ago. I’m a mom of two boys (four boys and three girls if you count step kids! One step son lives with us… so we have three boys here – I’m the only girl…)

    I’ve always loved cooking, but only recently did it really dawn on me that maybe THAT is what I SHOULD be doing. So I’ve been creating a lot of food lately from scratch and trying new things and trying to build up things I need in the kitchen (challenging with very limited supplies to work with).

      this would a be a great way to continue on the path. I love it that the recipes have all the equipment listed- and show exactly how things should look each step of the way. The coking school is amazing!
