Check out the DS Spring Bundle and I’m sure you’ll agree that it would be a fantastic Mother’s Day gift.

Oooh! I didn’t know they had a DS in green!!! I likey. The personal trainer cooking “game” is great! Especially when you need a little inspiration or like I often find myself in a recipe rut. :)

Google reader subscriber :) Thanks for the chance{s}!

Stacie May 27, 2009 at 7:26 am

I would love to win this. I would love to have a recipes at hand. I love the color of the DS it’s a unique color. It’s a springy looking bundle! What a great giveaway!

Marci May 27, 2009 at 10:51 am

I just recently used my Nieces DS. I had so much fun with it that I didn’t want to give it back to her…LOL! I would enjoy having one of my own.

Stephanie May 27, 2009 at 11:37 am

The personal trainer and cooking part is perfect to get rid of that winter weight I have put on! I have my fingers crossed on this one!

Trina May 27, 2009 at 11:39 am

Ummmm Hello!!
What an awesome giveaway… and your site is so fun!
I know some kids who would love that game(ok me too)
but more so, I COULD SERIOUSLY use some inspiration in the cooking area!!

Lesly Orf May 27, 2009 at 11:45 am

I absolutely love to cook and am always looking for new recipes to try. I think this game looks great and could be a great inspiration to my cooking. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Naomi May 27, 2009 at 12:16 pm

I love that this bundle makes no bones about being for mom and not for kids… from the gorgeous case and trendy green color to the companion cooking “game” it is the most chic video game, ever!

Amy May 27, 2009 at 2:10 pm

I would love to win this bundle for my sister, because she is always trying to find new ideas for cooking, she is always calling me for cooking advice, so this bundle would be perfect for her.

Rebecca May 27, 2009 at 2:36 pm

I just had a new baby and don’t have the time to fumble around in the kitchen like I did before. This would be a super win for my family. I would be able to be more organized and efficient when I cook. Thanks for giving me the chance at such a wonderful prize!

Kathy Scott May 27, 2009 at 3:58 pm

Looks like a great way to get motivated in the kitchen. I would have to hide it from my boys though.

Patricia Wagner May 27, 2009 at 5:16 pm

Would love to have one.

Tanya M. Cormier May 27, 2009 at 5:54 pm

With 2 small toddler, my attention span, patience & time runs thin, especially if I had to follow recipes out of a book. However, I cannot even cook nevermind lose my patience attempting to read a recipe. I’m hoping to win the personal trainer so that I can be a better mother & plump my little cherubs up with healthier home-cooked meals with foods from every food group. Of course, for the hubby as well. Thanks for the opportunity!

Julie May 27, 2009 at 6:14 pm

This looks really cool!

Jaque May 27, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Cooking? Not my forte, but perhaps it could become my love. I definitely need this DS lite & Personal Trainer:Cooking. Actually, an orangutan could probably prepare a better meal than me. :-(

Thank you for this opportunity to learn to out cook a monkey! :-)

Pelumi A May 27, 2009 at 6:25 pm

Hey i would love to learn how to cook, im tired of being a microwave chef. But don’t get me wrong, i can boil a mean egg, but ive heard that it takes more than that to impress people.

Dawn May 27, 2009 at 9:41 pm

i would love to have one to give to my boy

Mishia May 28, 2009 at 1:33 am

I love to cook and this would be great to help me find new recipes!

debbie May 28, 2009 at 3:15 am

would love to have this! I love to cook, but when it comes to coming up with new ideas, I seem to lack in that creativity department. This would give me LOTS of great ideas to try out. And it would be a fun little toy that would be all mine

Erma May 28, 2009 at 5:47 am

I would love the chance to win, thanks.

Mark Nason May 28, 2009 at 6:07 am

I grew up with the original Nintendo Game Boy, so for me to have a reason to play games as an adult while still learning & being productive would be a win win!

tanya campbell May 28, 2009 at 6:44 am

Honestly, the only way I’m ever going to learn to cook is by having my own private cooking instructor. Sounds like this is the next best thing to having a real person with me!!

Nicole Price May 28, 2009 at 7:19 am

I would love to win this. It would be so nice to be talked through a new recipe. I tend to get frazzled whenever I’m trying to cook something new. I’ve wanted to try this since I saw a commercial awhile ago. Thanks for the giveaway!

Tammy Darling May 28, 2009 at 8:36 am

I love the idea of 245 recipes in such a small space!

Tiffani May 28, 2009 at 9:21 am

I am a agmaer. I love food in any shape or form. So this combination of the two is a match made in my personal heaven!! I would love to get my hands on this.

Tiffani May 28, 2009 at 9:22 am

I subscribe.

K.rock May 28, 2009 at 9:23 am

Recipes in a game!! That sounds like fun. I would love to win this.

Bev Maloy May 28, 2009 at 9:31 am

How cool to be able to chat with the new WIFI hookup? Very nice package period!

Erin Walsh May 28, 2009 at 10:32 am

Well anyone talking to me while I cook, including a virtual instructor, has to be better than the usual mumbling an whining to myself that goes on in the kitchen.

Erin Walsh May 28, 2009 at 10:34 am

I’ve subscribed to your RSS feed. Thanks!

Jody May 28, 2009 at 12:12 pm

OK, this looks super cool, but the reason I would like to win it is so my daughter can have it and leave mine alone! (Or maybe I’ll keep the super cool green one and give her mine?) Either way I won’t have to hear that little voice coming to me at 6 am asking to play my “game”!

TRACY HEYER May 28, 2009 at 4:04 pm

Great way to learn how to cook! This a great giveaway! Thanks!

vandroid May 28, 2009 at 5:13 pm

This is a more hands-on and more clear way to read a recipe which would be great for my kids as they’re starting to make their own food. All the text from a tradtional recipe intimidates them a little, and this would be awesome. I love those little ones. ;)

Jennifer B May 28, 2009 at 5:48 pm

this would be cool to have in your purse when you went to grocery store because you could look to see what ingredients you might need for a dish you want to cook

ktanjatk May 28, 2009 at 5:51 pm

2 things that I love: cooking and gaming! Perfect combination :)
I love that it’s so slim and that it has a touch screen!

My wife loves to try new ways of cooking.

Tia May 28, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Tesa S. May 28, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Well, I certainly haven’t seen this in stores. What an awesome gift for Mother’s Day for myself! lol I’ve got picky eaters, and this would be awesome, and would probably entice my kids more if they got to read the recipe from the DS!

Tesa S. May 28, 2009 at 8:42 pm

I subscribe!

Robyn L Norris May 28, 2009 at 8:44 pm

This is really cool! I’ve never been much of a cook, but am trying to be healthier and I think this will be exciting for me and motivate me. Thanks! :)

katie May 28, 2009 at 9:01 pm

There has never been a person in history more in need of kitchen help than I. I hate cleaning and I’m a horrible cook, so I feel like a total trophy wife! This prize would definitely take my recipe repertoire and “kick it up a notch!”

Lisa A May 28, 2009 at 9:55 pm

I would love to win the DS/Cook Combo to improve my cooking skills for my family of four. It seems like a fun way to learn. Thanks for the giveaway!

Tammy Kennedy May 28, 2009 at 10:49 pm

I love to cook and I’m always experimenting on my family with my ideas.
I think it would be so awesome to win the bundle because it could serve more then one use. I spend at least 8 hours sometimes more a day entering contest and sadly don’t win to often but when I win it’s so exciting. We will be making a 2500+ trip on June 7th by car and this would be so nice to have to keep myself when not driving or the kids from being bored and when else would be the best time to learn, It would also be great for my teen daughter to help her learn to cook, but my sons love to cook to.

Thank you

I would ecstatic to win a Nintendo DS Lite for MYSELF! The kids get all the cool, fun stuff. This time, it’s for ME! The DS Lite is fun but functional. That’s for me.

Kathleen S. May 29, 2009 at 3:00 am

I have been trying to make more home cooked meals, but honestly, I’m just not the best cook. Maybe this would make it more fun and easy for me? Thanks!

Charles Eartly May 29, 2009 at 6:15 am

This would help this Dad/Husband expand his repitoire in the kitchen for the family! I’d like to learn more than what I know now.

Paula Harmon May 29, 2009 at 6:41 am

Hubby’s hobby is cooking, and video games. How perfect this prize would be for him. He was just laid off (again) and now has more time to cook, that’s the thing he loves to do the most. He has been really down and blue, this time he’s not getting his job back (after putting 15 years of his life into his work) and I’d love to surprise him with this, it sure would lift his spirits. I’m grateful just for the chance, because this is something I cannot go out an buy for him.

Christal M May 29, 2009 at 7:02 am

I would love to get something from this bundle to surprise my husband with something I haven’t cooked before

Justine May 29, 2009 at 9:55 am

I would be very excited to win this because I have never treated myself to an ‘adult’ type gaming system and don’t I deserve it just cause I’m the mom and I always put myself last? This would be a great opportunity to try some new recipes without taking up space!

Kim May 29, 2009 at 10:44 am

I personally love the colour! Maybe that’s a little silly but it’s so much nicer than a boring gray or black.

Marie May 29, 2009 at 11:12 am

I would love to win this to help me learn to be a better cook — since I lost my job I am trying to teach myself to cook more meals so we can save money. This might be a big help for that!!

kim v May 29, 2009 at 12:09 pm

I would love to win this b/c I need some new recipes and its cool that its all self contained.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Ryan May 29, 2009 at 12:38 pm

So this is kind of weird and I hope I don’t have a woman’s face next to my name, but I saw this and thought it’d be cool for a guy to enter for once and try to learn to cook for his girlfriend, instead of the other way around. don’t ya think?? It’d be a nice surprise for her, and looking at this system it seems to be a fool proof (or “guy-proof”) way to learn :-)

Amy Bradshaw May 29, 2009 at 1:12 pm

Ooo I would love to win this so I could actually cook something besides hamburger helper for a change! lol Learning to cook more and better dinners is something I have always wanted to do and with the ds it looks so much fun! When I am not using it for cooking the kids would love it too as they are bored with the gamecube lol. Thanks for the chance it looks awesome!!

Jillian Veit May 29, 2009 at 3:12 pm

it’s such a great idea to integrate video games and cooking together

Annie G May 29, 2009 at 3:17 pm

Cute bundle. I could really use the technique help. I’m often winging what my recipe says, because I’ve had no cooking training.

Dhimitrali May 29, 2009 at 3:44 pm

i would be excited to win because i am a female and as a child i loved video games! i would be playing pokemon on my gba for hours to try and get all badges, i pkayed megaman, pokemon, yugioh, dbz games and plenty more!

Wendy R May 29, 2009 at 3:49 pm

i Was be very excited beacuse me and my fiance recently moved in together and alot of my cookbooks got lost in storage and the cooking game would be great because of the of the recipes and instruction it offers so possibly i would be able to cook him a nice romantic meal one night also the game system would just be great because im always travling for my job and it would give me something fun to do on plane rides and such sooo excited about this giveaway :)

James F May 29, 2009 at 4:49 pm

I’d love to win this for my wife. She loves to cook and is excellent at it. She loves trying new recipes and I know she would love this as a gift.

Sadiana May 29, 2009 at 4:53 pm

Honestly, I suck at cooking! Anything I make comes out of a box, and has clearly labeled instructions, haha! I’d love to win this to give my fiance a chance to step back from the stove, and be able to wow him with something I made (that doesn’t taste like cardboard)! Hopefully something healthy, since we’re both dieting!

Sadiana May 29, 2009 at 4:56 pm

I blogged about this contest!


Julie k May 29, 2009 at 6:26 pm

My cookbook fell apart and I am always borrowing my daughter’s DS. It sounds like a match to me!

Annemarie May 29, 2009 at 6:51 pm

I have to use the same receipes over and over again because I have no real cooking skills. I would love to learn some new receipes and how to cook them with this.

Jammie May 29, 2009 at 7:02 pm

I would love to win this for my daughter. She is always in the kitchen helping me cook and this would be great for her.

andrea estes May 29, 2009 at 7:10 pm

I am a foodie-so a fun way to explore food. I also like the crimson color.

Marissa May 29, 2009 at 8:09 pm

I need to learn how to cook.

Kimberly M May 29, 2009 at 8:53 pm

Wow – I’ve never seen a cooking game before, but I’ve heard the Nintendo DS lites are very cool, and I LOVE the bright spring green color. As for the cooking program, well, my hubby will be the first to admit that I tend to get into a cooking rut, and having a game that inspires me to create something new in the kitchen will be both helpful and very welcome!

Danielle May 29, 2009 at 9:02 pm

I am just starting to learn to cook. Working on gathering a collection of kitchen items so its not chinese takeout and pizza every night. I would love to have the cooking game to help me learn to cook. ;)


Danielle May 29, 2009 at 9:04 pm

Melanie May 29, 2009 at 9:14 pm

I have never owned one of these, so this would be exciting.
Im most excited about the Cooking game however, because
I LOVE to cook, and I love cooking from recipes!

Dree May 29, 2009 at 9:33 pm

I’d love to win because I need new recipes and the game looks fun.

I subscribe.

denice p May 29, 2009 at 9:38 pm

what gets me excited about the game is that it has over 245 recipes, so conceivably i could do a new one for about 2/3 of a year. Which means that I get to have a different meal instead of the same ol thing. Which one can really only hope, btw green is the color of hope as is the system. lol and it ‘s nice and small too!

Chrysa May 29, 2009 at 9:56 pm

I would love to learn new recipes and have fun while doing it!

I would love to win this to help teach both my daughters to cook.I think this would be a fun way for the 3 of us to have some bonding time.Thanks!

Ellie W May 29, 2009 at 10:05 pm

I would love this! I love to cook, but haven’t got a lot of time to find new recipes. This would be perfect.

Cindy B. in Montana May 29, 2009 at 10:24 pm

I would love to win this not only for the cooking possibilities. My grandson loves his DS and would be thrilled if this grandma had one and got the games to play with/against him :)

Maria May 29, 2009 at 11:01 pm

Forgot to mention that I subscribed to your blog feed as well!! Thanks!

cathleen n. May 29, 2009 at 11:01 pm

So you “win” when it tastes your creation, right :) I LOVE video games, and would equally love to have a portable guide to help me in the real world! Nintendo is ingenius software company – to think I began by playing Mario games 20 years ago! Thanks for the entry!

Molly Capel May 30, 2009 at 12:01 am

I would love to win this, so that way while I am at work, I can peruse some recipes & hit up the store for ingredients when I get off.

Mia H. Beaudet May 30, 2009 at 12:26 am

My kids love to help me cook. It’s their special one on one time with me. I’d love to let them browse and find a recipe they’d like to try to prepare with me!
