Giveaway Time! Daregal Frozen Herbs! All Done, Calculating Winner.

That's right, it's time for my very first giveaway. The folks over at Daregal have offered to send five packages of herbs to one lucky reader. Now I don't do Facebook, Twitter or any of that other stuff, so you only have one chance to win. And to do that you need to tell me which five herbs you want. If you win, those are the ones you get. That by itself would be a bit too easy though, I think. So I also want you to tell me at least one thing you are going to make with them. You don't need to give a recipe or anything, just a description. It won't help your chances to win (I'm going to use a random number dealie) so feel free to admit if it has mushrooms, tofu or fish. Heh. I'm just curious.

So, to review, these are the herbs they have: basil, oregano, dill, cilantro, Italian parsley, the Original Blend (which is basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme), the Grilling Blend (thyme, rosemary, savory and parsley and my favorite of the blends) and the Italian Blend (parsley, red onion, oregano, basil and thyme). You can also visit their website, if you want more details on the product. I've used all of them but the dill (still can't find that specific Greek yogurt I'm looking for) and I love them. Unfortunately they only deliver in the US, sorry non-US residents. I'm going to run the giveaway through the weekend ending at, say, 6pm EST on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday. Good luck!

What? Really? Well I'll make my own blends with the basics: basil, oregano, dill, cilantro, Italian parsley. I've been interested in these frozen herb things for awhile now, I hope I get to try 'em!

I would love to try the Original Blend plus the basil, oregano, cilantro and dill. I love soupy-type of dishes over rice so I would use the basil and oregano with cannellini, zukes and tomatoes (among other things) to create a simple cassoulet-type dish. Now I'm hungry . . .

Jean Bugs said...

Awesome! I'd love the basil, of course. I think I use it in just about anything with garlic. Also the grilling blend would be great for steaks and burgers. The Italian blend would be great for my homemade spaghetti sauce, and the original and Italian parsley would be great in just about anything.

Frieda said...

Ooooh, herbs! I would love to have the basil, oregano, Original Blend, Rosemary and since I love to make anything Italian, your Italian Blend. I love to make artisan bread and throw in some rosemary and olive oil. What a great giveaway!

Grilling blend! We're going to pull out the grill and do lamb skewers!

You have no idea how long I've been coveting Daregal - I'd go for basil, oregano, dill, cilantro and Italian parsley. Dill in a sauce for salmon, basil with stewy beans, cilantro in a Peruvian beef stew.

Neat! I would love to try the Original Blend (which is basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme)!

girlichef said...

I've been wanting to try these! Would love to make some pickles with the dill!

Gina Kadlec said...

I'm going with Basil for my pasta recipe...yummy. Cilantro for my pork tacos, Original Blend for stews... Grilling blend for Grilling... and the Italian Blend for my homemade pasta sauce. Yummy!

Sounds very interesting!

Christine aka Mistress of Cakes said...

Awww...they grow up so fast!!! Giveaways are so much fun...especially when you love the products!!!

I would take the Orignal Blend as well with the basil, oregano, cilantro, and dill....they would make fine creamy Italian dressing!!

Kristin said...

I would love the original blend - I think I would like to make some shrimp simmered with a few of the herbs, and some sauces with the rest! Congrats on your first giveaway!!

Victoria K. said...

Sounds awesome! I'd love the basil, oregano, cilantro, parsley, and the grilling blend. I'd love to use the basil year round for some great Italian dishes, and the oregano inspires me to cook something Greek! Maybe some fish with a chunky Mediterranean salsa.

Reeni♥ said...

How cool! I would like the basil, oregano, cilantro, dill, and Italian parsley. I'd like to try them out in pasta sauce. You asked me about freezing the pancakes and I'm not sure, never freezed them but I don't see why they wouldn't be OK.

noble pig said...

Hmmm, I would love all of them. Mosy likely I would make chicken soup, grilled something or stinky fish heads! I can't decide which ones, you pick.

These sound cool, sorry, yes I know thay are frozen...lol...
It would be nice to have these herbs on hand especially just now before mine are in season.

I would love to try the frozen cilantro, dill, Original Blend, Grilling Blend and the Italian Blend.

Merci mille fois for offering these to your fellow cooks.

Carolsue said...

I cook a lot of Thai food which calls for Cilantro and Basil, so those are two I would like for my Pad Thai recipe! Also, I'd like the Grilling Blend (for steaks), Italian Blend and Original Blend (for spaghetti).

Ricardo said...

I am non US, doesn't mean I can't cook as well (lol hahaha) surely a little pack of herbs wouldn't cost much to send to the UK....ah well never mind lol good luck to the possible winner...I was going to mention, my ball courgettes stuffed with pearl Barley crush + courgette and garlic accompanied with pan fried salmon topped with ginger mushrooms and almonds that I made yesterday ...ah well lmao...take care kisses :) xx Rico-Recipe

MaMely said...

ohh, I'd love to try the Original Blend plus Rosemary to create some Italian dish, and cilantro for tomato salsa.

Tallie Ann said...

I'd like to try the basil, oregano, dill, italian parsley, and the grilling blend. I would make either chimichurri to be served with chicken, beef or pork or pesto sauce for pizza with the herbs.

George said...

Spaghetti sauce and salad dressing.

Pierce said...

This is cool! Let me say I like parsley, oregano, the original blend and well..... anything else is great!

Fuji Mama said...

K, FOR SURE basil, 'cause it's my absolute favorite herb on the planet! Then oregano, dill, the Original Blend and the Italian Blend. I would use the Italian Blend to make some cowboy caviar....mmmm...

Katja said...

hmmm, basil, dill and the 3 blends :) Being in the Pacific NW I would most likely use them on seafood or a veg.

Danielle said...

ooooh...a giveaway!! Ok...lets see...dill, cilantro, italian parsley, the grilling blend and the italian blend. There's sooo much I could do..theres a really good dip I make using dill. I'm always using cilantro for my mexican dishes. When I cook I only use italian parsley (especially for that breaded chicken with sauce that you know you love...hahahaha). The Italian blend will of course go in all my sauces. And with the summer coming, the grilling blend won't last long :)

Hey there "Bob"! Wow - your very own giveaway...how cool is that?! I would love some basil (#1 choice it seems), rosemary, cilantro, dill and I hear there's a blend? That would be awesome too! For the basil - it's almost tomato season so caprese salad time! The rosemary - for every chicken I ever roast...cilantro - still trying to perfect my salsa recipe! Dill - it's Spiedie time! (a central NY grilled speciality made w/ chicken, pork or lamb) and the for the blend? Maybe a yummy dressing w/ olive oil and balsamic?
