‘Tis the season of giving all over the world right now, and that includes the blogosphere. From cookbooks to edible gifts, those of us who write about food are donning our Santa hats and sharing some great foodie swag with our fine readers. Yours truly’s blog is no different, especially considering I have, hands-down, THE best, most generous readers in the food blogging world! As a thank you for all your incredible support, I wanted to do a few different giveaways this Christmas season. Most of what I have to raffle off comes from the fantastic swag I’ve gotten over the past few months from some of the awesome foodie events I’ve attended and either have duplicates of, or simply no room/use for them. Other gifts come courtesy of some fabulous folks I’ve met through said foodie events, and are wonderful additions to anyone’s food & wine repertoire. Regardless, everything I’m giving away is brand new, of the highest quality, and sure to please any food lover out there.
Just a quick note about these giveaways before we get started: because we’re so close to the Christmas holiday, I want to make sure you all have a chance to get your prizes on time, which means these are going to move very quickly! So if you want to win something, be sure to enter ASAP, lest you miss out on some great goodies.
For the first giveaway, I’m starting out with a small set of gifts, but one that packs a serious flavor punch, which I’m calling my “Get Spicy!” set. A modest mix of tasty spice rubs and fiery, peppery ingredients, this is perfect for anyone who has a fearless palate. Here’s what you’ll receive:
- 1 2 oz. package of Chef Jason McClure’s Homemade Spice Rub (for chicken, fish, steak, veggies, etc.)
- 1 5.5 oz. Steak Barbecue Rub from Steven Raichlen
- 1 2.5 oz. Harissa Spice Mix from Whole Spice
- 1 16 oz. jar Golden Peperoncinis from Mezzetta
Use any of these fabulous ingredients to spice up your meats & veggies, create new soups or sauces (particularly with that harissa mix), or just add new flavors & textures to any of your favorite dishes.
Entering to win this spicy little package is easy! Simply comment below and tell me what your “must-have” herbs & spices are! Are you a fan of the fiery peppers? Or the more mysterious, exotic tasting turmerics, cumins, and sumacs? Are you more of an herb person, preferring the aromatic coolness of thymes & tarragons? Whatever herbs & spices are your faves, just comment below before 3pm on Thursday, December 16th, for your chance to win this great set of goodies. One lucky winner will be selected at random on Thursday evening.
For bonus entries, tweet about the contest by posting the following: “PGEW Christmas giveaway #1: Win the Get Spicy prize pack from @PoorGrlEatsWell at http://www.poorgirleatswell.com! #giveaway“.

Good luck, everyone! Stay tuned for a new recipe tomorrow, as well as Giveaway #2! They’ll both be good ones!
