Win it: Spar for the Spurtle + Mad Hungry Giveaway

One of our judges for the Spar for the Spurtle cook off is Lucinda Scala Quinn, creative genius behind Mad Hungry. She has written five cookbooks, including two Mad Hungry cookbooks, writes the Mad Hungry blog, hosts Mad Hungry TV and even has a weekly SiriusXM radio show. Lucinda is also the Executive Director of Food and Entertaining for Martha Stewart Living. On top of that, she’s a mom to three boys, a full-time job that never ends, no matter what their age. Lucinda has made it her mission to bring back the family meal, which is something we can really get behind. She’s a busy gal, to say the least. Yet she has somehow found time in her very full life to create her own Mad Hungry spurtle.Lucinda Scala Quinn

The Mad Hungry spurtle is not your average spurtle, either. These spurtles are made from bamboo, which helps keep the microbes at bay, and they have a more evolved shape. These spurtles are not the dowel-like traditional Scottish spurtles, but a perfect marriage between a spurtle and a spatula. Everyone at our office agreed that it would be much easier to taste your oatmeal from one of these beauties. The same rules apply, though—always, ALWAYS stir your oats clockwise. No one needs those pesky bad spirits stirred into their oats.

We are thrilled to be welcoming Lucinda to Bob’s Red Mill for Spar for the Spurtle. To share our excitement with you, we’re teaming up with the Mad Hungry folks to offer you a stellar prize package for five, yep FIVE, lucky winners.

Mad Hungry + Bob's Red Mill GiveawayEach prize pack will contain a copy of Lucinda’s cookbooks- Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys and Mad Hungry Cravings, a Mad Hungry spurtle and a package of our favorite oats—two packages of Steel Cut Oats, a package of Scottish Oatmeal and a package of Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. (We will be more than happy to accommodate gluten free winners with gluten free oats.) To enter, follow the prompts below (be sure to check out the required comment question under “Leave a Blog Post Comment”). We’ll pick five winners at random from all who enter by 12:01 am on August 16th, 2013. Contest is limited to US and Canada residents 18 and over (official rules in the app below).
