Crate & Barrel Gift Card Giveaway!

May 19, 2011

Happy Thursday, friends!

In honor of the fact that it’s almost the weekend, and that I have a bridal shower on Saturday, and that I’ve been checking things off my to-do list like a mad woman, I’m hosting a giveaway for a $30 gift card to Crate & Barrel.

Pretty awesome, right?

To enter, leave a comment below between now and 10 pm Sunday night answering the following question:

“What type of recipes would you like to see more of on Espresso and Cream?”

Good luck!
