I’m celebrating my 4 year blogiversary today! It’s hard to believe this little ol’ blog has been around for 4 years.  In that time I’ve accumulated 2000 subscribers (uhh, what?!) and written 470 posts.  I’ve had so much fun with elly says opa, and I hope you have, too.  I’ve really expanded my horizons with regards to food/ingredient combinations, I’ve met so many amazing people (bloggers and otherwise), and I’ve accumulated way more kitchen tools and cookbooks than any normal human being should.

I’m planning to get a blog redesign soon (though I’ve admittedly been incredibly lazy when it comes to this), so look for that in the (hopefully) near future, too.

Anyway, let’s celebrate with a giveaway! I’m giving away some of my favorite things, Oprah-style.  Well, if Oprah weren’t loaded, that is. :)

Here’s the deal:  One reader will win one of the following 4 items/packages.  The winner will pick which of the four prizes s/he wants. In addition to the selected prize, I will be also be including a $20 gift card to one of my favorite stores, The Spice House (don’t worry, you can order online, and I’ll give you some of my favorite recommendations too :)

Here are your options:

1. The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz + fancy schmancy ice cream scoop

I love ice cream and I love David Lebovitz. ‘Nuff said.

2. Mexican Everyday by Rick Bayless + tortilla warmer

This is, by far, one of my favorite cookbooks (if you couldn’t tell by all the posts about it).  All the recipes are simple and delicious.

3. 12″ Cast iron skillet + handle mitts

If  you read this blog at all, you know I’m in looooooove with my cast iron skillet.  I use it for everything from searing meats to making cornbread, to fritters, to hash browns.  It’s pretty much the greatest piece of cookware.
