Do you want to Win a Vita-Mix?

vita-mix

This post is for YOU.

Yes, you. All of you. Every person who is reading.

You might’ve noticed a lot of my blog comments (and tweets and facebook responses) start with “Thank you so much…”

I’m sure it sounds like an annoyingly-broken record, but I really do mean every one of those “aww thank you”s. Thank you for trying my recipes, for sharing my website with friends, or for even just reading my blog in the first place. I get up every day, excited about my job, and it’s all thanks to you. Although I can’t think of a way I could possibly repay you all, this giveaway will hopefully at least make one of you very happy!

 

This giveaway is now closed.

Congratulations to the randomly-selected winner: Leslie.

Leslie said she’d give her big toe for a Vita-Mix. Rest assured, Leslie, you can keep your toe!! But please email me at chocolatecoveredkatie at msn, including your shipping address and phone number in the message, so the company can send you a brand new machine!

Future giveaways:

I was blown away by the response to this giveaway and apologize for any site slowness (or crashing) you might have experienced while trying to enter. I’ll be much better prepared next time…

And there will be a next time, as the Vita-Mix Company was so happy with this giveaway response that they’re open for future giveaways.

So if you didn’t win today, stay tuned. 🙂

    Aww….can’t really enter to win because I don’t fb or tweet and I share email with my sweet husband. But as a stay home, homeschooling mother of 4 that loves to treat her kids (and husband) to healthy treats I’d LOVE to win this awesome machine!
    Anyway, I’ve been wanting to tell you and this got me on to comment. Your one serving recipes are super fun for mom’s with a few kids. My kids have a blast making their own pancakes and I don’t have to manage 3 kids and baby in the kitchen all at the same, every kid gets a turn and gets to do the whole thing. They love it because they get to make their own and they get 1:1 time with me, I love it because it’s healthy, fun and fast and simple w/ a quick clean up. We also LOVE your deep dish chocolate chip pie. I’ve cut the sugar down to 2/3 of a cup and increased the vanilla- AWESOME! Thanks for all YOU do to make my life a little sweeter!

      • Kelley says

        Umm I’m laughing so hard right now! I never comment on anything, I never read blogs (I don’t have time) but I love yours and only came on the computer to get the mint chip ice cream recipe. Anyhow, I must have hit the wrong thing because my email is getting flooded! Wow! Your job might be crazier than mine! Pray my husband laughs too! Oh My!!!!!!!!

        • Kelley says

          And THAN YOU for the manage button! And thank you for being one of the high light of my mother’s day with you raspberry muffins and the vanilla whip cream, coconut milk just became a must in my house : )

    By the way, it was the Healthy Cookie Dough Dip… I bet you get this all the time, but YUM! I made it for the gals in my Weight Loss Challenge group as an alternative to actual cookies, and they are in love! We reduced the amount of peanut butter to cut a few calories out, but otherwise, a-MAZ-ing! Great idea!

  8. Sarah says

    I subscribed to your blog! My husband and I have been lusting for a Vita-mix for years! What a great giveaway!

    AMAZING giveaway! I just hinted to my husband last night that I would LOVE a Vita-Mix-he didn’t seem too positive about it!

  32. Carolyn says

    I hope that, one day, my family will see that my veganism doesn’t stem from the eating disorder I had a bajillion years ago, but from an honest desire to love and nurture my body, without harming animals.

  33. Megan says

    #3 for subscribing to the email list. Can’t wait to start getting your tasty recipes delivered to my inbox!

  34. Bonnie says

    Hey Katie,

    I just subscribed to your feedburner!

    I’ve recently became obsessed with your blog when I saw one of your recipes on pininterest. As a type 1 diabetic with a sweet tooth, your blog is awesome for healthy, alternatively sweetened treats! It also helps that you put the carbs in your nutritional info.

    Thanks for doing that! It definitely makes my life easier!

  35. Carolyn says

    I am going to make the Peanut Butter Cookie Dough cookies tomorrow, and probably store all the dough in my belly. =P

  36. Lilla says

    wow, awesome giveaway, thank you! i shared your Nutella fudge pop recipe on FB and i made it public. also a reminder for me to finally make it 🙂

  37. Katie says

    Shared a recipe to Facebook (the chocolate fudgesicle recipe!) #3.

    Thank you for this contest and your blog! Your recipes have made transitioning into a vegan diet easy, and as a fellow runner that likes to eat a lot, your blog is an amazing resource.

  38. Marcey says

    Okay… so this is my first comment that I have ever posted on ANY blog. I love your blog and am so thankful for it! So I hope you feel special 🙂 I am a “stay at home” mother of 3 kids (the oldest is 4!) and I look forward to 7:30 each night because that it when the kids go to bed and I make myself a CCK treat! Oh and now I’ll get your emails … BONUS!

  39. Marcey says

    I also shared a recipe on my fb… again another first for me 🙂 I have never endorsed something on my fb other than that I sell Pampered Chef but I LOVE your blog and even my dad loved the deep dish cookie pie so I HAD to share that one!

  40. Frazz says

    Shared on Facebook — comment #3! (: Don’t have a twitter so can’t enter that way, but here’s hoping and good luck to all involved!

  41. Desi says

    3/3 I’m probably going to make the flourless chocolate chip cookie recipe and just eat it as dough like I did a few days ago 😮 It’s reeeally good.

  42. Taryn says

    Just shared the link for Apple Pie pancakes on Facebook. I’ll be making them for my birthday on Friday! Yay!

  43. Jackie says

    I subscribed via email! Although I already follow you on GReader 🙂 Everyone I work with has a VitaMix and LOVES it!!

  44. Marcey says

    Shared a recipe on fb #3… oh and my 2 girls love having tea parties during their baby brothers afternoon nap and so I love whipping up funfetti cookie dough balls for our special treat 🙂

  45. Marcey says

    Oh and I liked you on fb… once again another first for me 🙂 I know… I am sad, I just don’t have much time to do those things. But I do make time to check your blog… thanks again!

  46. Dana says

    Subscribe by email… ooh, also i had a particularly bad night last night and definitely made the mug coffee cake out of wanting something sweet that wouldnt make me go to bed feeling gross.

  47. Kathy says

    Holy Moly, a Vitamix. That is awesome. Never used one and even my own blender croaked. So really need one and would love to have one. Such a nice give away.

  48. Joyce (Noble) Carranza says

    I came across your website (what a find!) last night, while on FB–found you via Homestead Survival and your recipe they shared for Three Ingredient Chocolate Bars. Once I accessed that receipt, I went to your site and found myself dreaming of making all the recipes shared.

    Today, I went back to your site and found the Vita Mix contest–must be my lucky day, lol:) Regardless of whether I win or not (but I really, really DO want it, lol)… please know I feel fortunate to have found your site. I struggle with weight gain and I sincerely think I could live SOLELY on the recipes on your site and lose weight better than I have with all the diets on the market. I DID come across your Chocolate Covered Diet last night on FB and of course, liked it as well;)

    Today, I signed up for emails, shared a recipe on my home page on FB, and liked your FB page again.

    Again, I am very pleased I found you on FB and I loved the Mother Day comments and the ONEderful pictures of you and your mom. Please continue your blog and sharing! Thank you CCKatie!

  49. Erin says

    Shared a recipe on Facebook with my dear mother 🙂 The delightful Secret peanut butter Cookies!! Thanks again for crafting delicious healthy treats..you’re a saint!

  50. Lily says

    Katie, thank you SO MUCH for this blog.

    I know you probably won’t see this comment, since there are so many on this post, and even if you do, this measly little comment from a little sixteen-year-old girl probably won’t leave much of an impression anyway, but I’ve never told you how much I appreciate what you do, so I thought I’d take an opportunity to thank you now.

    I’ve been struggling with anorexia for months (since September) now, and even though I’m still fighting every day, your blog has helped me so much, providing me with endless new ideas to get nutritious and delicious food in me and (re)teaching me the joys of healthy eating.

    Thank you again, and I’ve subscribed by email! :]

  51. Samantha says

    Thank you for all that you do! I love all these fun recipes and all that I have learned from you. 🙂 (comment 2)

    And thank you for such a fun giveaway!

  52. LaNita says

    I posted a recipe on facebook!…Though I do not have a personal FB or Twitter so I am posting on a friends small business site. It doesn’t have a whole lot of followers now because she isn’t really that active due to some other issues at the time, but its my only access. Hopefully it is enough 🙂
