Win-It Wednesday: Crisco Get Inspired Giveaway (2 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on February 2, 2011 · 452 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

If you've been enjoying Crisco's three olive oil varieties in your cooking, you'll want to check out their Crisco Mediterranean Inspirations Recipe and Essay Contest for the chance to win a trip for two to Italy. Plus the top three entries in each category will receive a year's supply of Crisco Olive Oil products and a cookware set.

Submit a recipe using either the Crisco 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Crisco Pure Olive Oil or Crisco Light Olive Oil; plus, two Mediterranean-style ingredients, including tomatoes, garlic, olives, pasta, yogurt, legumes, fresh herbs, lentils or cheese before March 18th for a chance to win.

We use olive oil on pretty much a daily basis when cooking, but one of my favorite indulgences is to serve it as a dipping oil a la The Macaroni Grill!

Pair it with some really delicious homemade bread (Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day pictured here -- more on this very soon), and it can actually be a meal in itself. In fact, this was my lunch today, LOL...

If you're interested in the recipe for my Italian Herb Dipping Oil, you can find it on Unsophisticook!

Two lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will win a Crisco Get Inspired Prize Pack including:

  • Crisco Olive Oil product
  • Recipe cards
  • Mediterranean-style gourmet gift items

To enter, tell me what your favorite Mediterranean-inspired meal is. Are you a straight spaghetti and meatballs fan, or do you prefer the lentils and olives side of the sea?

+++++++++++++++

Every reader has four methods available to enter this contest. Choose one each of any combination of method one, two, three, or four for up to a total of 4 entries!!!
