Barilla Giveaway!

When I went to BlogHer Food a few months ago I stopped by the Barilla booth and drooled over their new, all-natural pasta sauces, and thought their new line of Piccolini pastas—classic shapes in miniature form—were just adorable. They shared two tasty recipes using their new products and I liked them so much that I was that girl who kept going back and sneaking more samples.

Imagine my excitement when I got a lovely surprise in the mail last week: eight jars of their new pasta sauce, two canvas bags, an apron, and a wooden spoon. 

Pre-made sauces, especially those that taste homemade, are perfect for those nights when cooking is the last thing you want to do. Honestly, if we weren't right smack dab in the middle of moving, I'd probably keep all of the sauces for myself. But lucky for you, we're trying to leave all of our pantry goods behind and start fresh when we get to Italy!




Because I'm moving in the blink of an eye, and because I love you guys, I'm giving away four Barilla sauces, a canvas bag to carry them in, a spiffy apron to wear (so you don't splatter yourself with sauce!), and a spoon to stir it with (all pictured above).

  37. I'd love to read more "everyday life/routine" posts once you are settled in. I think many people think of moving to a new country in the same terms of being a tourist...but I'm really curious about the differences that come with actually "living" somewhere new.
