Whirley Pop GIVEAWAY!!!

Hi guys! Today is the day I've been waiting for for a long time! It's the day I'm going to start my WHIRLEY POP GIVEAWAY!
My Whirley Pop popcorn popper is one of the favorite things I have in my kitchen.  I use it at least once a week.

We make our own kettlecorn at home  (see how here).   It's super yummy.  It's really fast to make.  It's pretty healthy.  And it's fun!  You can make other kinds of popcorn in the Whirley Pop, but we stick to kettlecorn because we love it so much.

The Whirley Pop is the perfect gift too (for yourself) or for someone you love.  I've given quite a few away.

This post is sponsored by me because I love blogging and I'm grateful for those of you that read my blog.  :)

So, how do you win this WHIRLEY POPThere are THREE WAYS to win, so increase your chances of winning by doing all three.  So, if you do all three things, leave three separate comments in this post.

2.  Like "What is on your menu this week?" on Facebook!  Then leave me a comment in this post telling me that you "like" me.  If you previously liked my blog on facebook, then tell me "I already liked you on Facebook" in a comment.  (find my facebook page here)

3.  Post about the giveaway on your facebook page or your blog.  Then leave me a comment IN THIS POST telling me so.  

The giveaway will close next Friday, November 21st at midnight MDT.  You must live within the United Stated.  I'll email the winner.  If I don't hear from the winner within 48 hours, then another winner will be chosen.  

I choose the winner by having a random number generated using the number of comments from THIS POST, so you make sure you leave your comments on THIS post and not on facebook.  Thanks!

Good luck everyone!  



  1. Hi Jenny! If I win I want to give the popper to those cute Baker twins & older sisters ... I had stirfry: rice, left over meat, vegetables and homemade gravy. I plan to go to Arby's for dinner and Cafe Rio (therefore I will have some left overs ...) So glad you are such a nice person & friend. kathbaker@gmail.com

  2. I shared your give away post on my limited little Facebook ... I use it to get cousins to share family photos & it has worked!!! Beth Baker Given has put photos in my pedigree on FamilySearch!!! yea!!! It's all about making connections. So maybe if I really read your blog I will feel like I can cook again...

  3. I liked your Facebook post, and commented on it. Love you & those kids...

  4. okay ... now I am just being silly ... but I don't think I have my recipe cards here & I am trying to recreate the recipe some girl made for my husband back when he was an undergrad ... maybe this is it ...

    "These ribs came out so tender and I know I've had problems with dried out country style ribs in the past. I did drop the temp. to 325 and baked for 1-1/2 hours, then topped with sauce and followed another review and did 20 minutes covered, uncovered and basted 20 minutes and basted 20 minutes. I think that last 40 minutes uncovered as long as your basting regularly (and turning) gave them a more solid outside texture and not a mushy texture. We will definitely make these again and I'll watch for the sales on these ribs which I've ignored for many years."

    "Prepared the sauce at night, the next morning, put everything in the slow cooker on Low before going to work. Great flavor, not too sweet or too spicy. Meat just falls apart. Family loved it!"

  10. Fun giveaway! Tonight I am making baked potato soup (in the crockpot) and rolls, and I've also got a crockpot of your hot chocolate going for when the kids get home. BECAUSE IT IS SINGLE DIGITS HERE. But the cold never bothered me anyway.

    Last night I made my Aunt Julie's "lazy day lasagna" skillet. It was a new recipe for me but I think I like it better than real lasagna!

    1 (26 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
    ½ lb browned Italian sausage
    2 cups water
    4 cloved minced garlic
    4 cups uncooked egg noodles
    1 cup ricotta cheese
    3 tbsp chopped fresh basil (I did this with dried basil and it was still good - obv fresh would be better)
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

    Bring spaghetti sauce, cooked sausage, water and garlic to boil in large skillet. Stir in noodles, cover. Cook on medium-low heat for 12 minutes or just until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir. Mix ricotta and basil, drop spoonfuls over noodle mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses and cover. Let stand 5 minutes until mozzarella is melted.

    Can substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese.

  11. I've been following you on Facebook for years!

  22. I am making Hawaiian pork chops, with corn, green salad and your one hour rolls!

  23. I made a super fattening bake potato soup with ham, lots of sour cream, and butter. A hint of garlic salt, cheddar cheese and potatoes and then when it was all nicely cooked in the crock pot I blended about 1/4 of the soup to thicken it up. Paired it with some One hour rolls, and walla, yummm yumm. Also shared your giveaway with my facebook pals.

  25. Thanks for the giveaway!! Dinner last night was pretty sad. I just started a new job this week that is kicking my trash! We had spaghetti with leftover spaghetti noodles, banana squash and a salad. Instead of having my spaghetti meat sauce over noodles I had it over banana squash.
