I’m pretty sure you’ve gathered this by now, but in case you weren’t aware — I’m accident-prone. Very much so. I’m even more inclined to melt spatulas, catch my hair on fire, or make a batch of sugar cookies that doesn’t have any sugar in them if I’m low on energy (or if it’s a Monday). And I have a hunch that it’s not just me :)
This? May not have happened if I’d had a Starbucks Doubleshot® Energy+Coffee handy.
The lovely folks at Starbucks invited me to run a fancy little contest to introduce you to their Starbucks Doubleshot® Energy+Coffee, and all you have to do is tell me about an embarrassing or funny thing that you’ve done in the kitchen.
So, what’s in it for you?
Prizes, of course! I mean, obviously, it’s fun enough to share your hilarious stories, but what kind of contest would this be if there weren’t some fun things to win? You get the chance to win a $5 Starbucks Card, Starbucks Doubleshot® Energy+Coffee coupons, a white board (who couldn’t use that for jotting down recipes on the fly?), and a fancy little gizmo called the StealthSwitch™ that makes computer applications go invisible (in case you’re checking out recipes at the office). Who doesn’t love prizes? (I know I do! Totally looking forward to checking out the samples I’ll be getting.)
So, in short: you can win things just by having a funny kitchen story! And I’ll even cut you some slack in case you’re coordinated and polished and all of your recipes turn out perfectly — it doesn’t have to be your story. You can tell me about the time your roommate set your kitchen on fire, or your puppy knocked over your cake stand, or your neighbor down the street put aluminum foil in the microwave.

So! Leave a comment, and tell me about your funniest or most accident-prone kitchen experiences! You’ve got two weeks to participate, and I’m looking forward to reading your stories (and hopefully sending some prizes to you!).
