Are You a Flirt? Get Cookin' with This Giveaway

March 4, 2010   49 Comments

Cooking can be boring, arduous, and messy. How can you get through it and still have style?


The people at Flirty Aprons have devised a way to get through the worst chore. Just tie on one of these lovely concoctions and Betty Crocker will get out of your way.

The great thing about these aprons is that if you are entertaining, you can just toss this over your outfit and no one will notice you are still in your sweatpants! You will look like an amazing hostess as you wow the crowd with your ruffles.

There are two negatives about these aprons. First, they are flammable. Secondly, the pretty bow can get a little close to the stove.

The bow is tied in front with perhaps a bit too much fabric (which makes me think they weren't thinking about cooking in the kitchen but cooking somewhere else in the house...need I say more?).

But, if you are careful and don't set yourself on fire, you will be the life of the party.

I do all my preparations by noon--cutting, chopping, slicing, peeling, etc. so that I know come time to cook everything is ready. My absolute cutoff time is 3 pm. If things are not ready by 3, then it will be takeout. This helps to cut down on less than healthy meals. Most importantly this cuts down on the stressing out about what to cook for dinner. However, I work from home and I have the luxury to this. When working outside of the home I could never this.

That's a very cute apron! I motivate myself to cook by making foods that I enjoy. Last night I made mexican burgers with sweet potato fries. Everything came out so delicious that next time I'm craving a burger and fries, I will definitely be motivated to get my rear moving in the kitchen.

The apron is SO cute!! Such a fun giveaway! :-)

I motivate myself to cook by almost always fixing new recipes - I like to experiment! :-)

I motivate myself to cook by cooking for those I love! I find out what they like, search for recipes, and cook those meals for them. It makes me happy to see my friends and family eating and enjoying meals that I have made with them in mind. I love seeing their happy faces and full tummies, as they eat something I made just for them. =)

As a vegan, it's hugely important to me to be able to show to others that not only is the lifestyle about ethical consumerism but the food is great, too! Veganism really opened my eyes to the extraordinary wealth of possibilities in the kitchen - and I do my best to reach for them and use them to show others that an animal-free diet can not only be as good as, but better than, consuming animal flesh and produce. And all without preaching :P I let the food speak for itself.

I get motivated by reminding myself that what I am making at home is 100 times healthier than what I can get out at a restaurant, and that if I don't cook dinner tonight, I won't have any leftovers to eat for lunch tomorrow. This will only make me spend more money!

I am naturally motivated everyday! As soon as my eyes open, I am thinking about what I am going to cook. I go to the store on my lunch hour and see what looks good. I snatch it up and when I get off of work I hurry home, grab a vintage apron, turn up the music and cook!

I motivate myself to cook by knowing it will be the healthiest option and I know what ingredients are going in - also I love cooking for my guy! :)

I know that cooking at home is the best way for me to control the calories and the quality of the food that I eat. I really love to cook and find new recipes that are tasty as well as healthy. For example last night I made us healthy turkey Rubens and my fiancé loves them so much he requested that we have them once a week!

Guilt is my motivation to cook! As in my boyfriend generally cooks 9 out of 10 meals and then it occurs to me that I should maybe pitch in a bit :) He cooks and I do the dishes - which is really what I want the apron for. I can keep myself clean while cooking but invariably get water all over myself while doing the dishes!!

Finding new recipes that use fresh whole ingredients motivates me to cook. I love the feel, smell and thought of fresh bright produce, especially fresh herbs. I don't even look at cookbooks that focus on premade packaged products anymore. I know I'm giving my family the best food possible!

I find that the times I least want to cook are the times when my fridge and cupboards aren't stocked well and I start thinking, "what the heck am I gonna cook with this stuff?" So I've started planning meals each weekend before I do my grocery shopping. I feel I'm much more motivated to cook when I've planned and stocked my cupboards in advance.

My cooking motivation is my hungry youngins! :) I would LOVE an apron! They are SO cute!

That is a cute apron. I love to cook. Now that I'm not working I find it hard not to spend all my time baking unhealthy fatting foods. I really missed having the opportunity to cook when I was working. Now I can have dinner ready when my husband gets home.

I get my inspiration from many web sites with recipes. My motivation is my health. If I cook it at home, I know what's in it. It keeps me in control.

that is cute!! instead of going to resturants and getting food how they make it I use what I want or add or take out what I want also I know how much fat salt ect I'm adding :) I have the chopping gadgets too so it's not hard to stay motivated to cook but making it easier and trying new things is how I do stay motivated

I motivate myself to cook by making foods that I enjoy and love!

So cute! Such a good idea for a Giveaway! I motivate myself by cooking easy meals that my family likes and that are easy on our waistlines. I have found a number of tasty, low-fat, low-calorie ideas on Snack Girl's site! Keep the good information coming! :)

I motivate myself to cook by using new recipes, or trying new things that I've never done before. I love to cook and bake, and I'm always up for a challenge! If it sounds challenging, then I definitely want to try it!

I motivate myself, with a reminder that packaged and processed quick foods are lousy for the mind, body and soul. But I think this apron, could motivate me all on its own! OH LA LA

i love this super cute apron! i can just imagine myself twirling around my kitchen, flirty as can be.

my health and that of my family are main motivators for getting into the kitchen and cooking, even after those long busy days. but it's straight up love that gets me baking each time- nothing settles my soul and brings me the same happiness as breaking homemade bread with friends.

Quitting all the processed foods that are out there is my motivation to cook! My family and myself FEEL better and LOOK better by eating as many whole foods as possible! Finding new recipes that the whole family will enjoy keeps me going!

I motivate myself by reminding myself how much money it saves - I tell myself I get a pedicure if I make dinner 90% of the month!

i cook with my 2 yo, so much fun,but so messy

Mostly, I realize that our children and my husband need to eat healthy meals! So do I, but I am a vegetarian and eat differently than they do. It also helps me to find unique and interesting recipes to try! What a lovely apron prize giveaway

drawing.....Thanks, Cindi

My families' health is a huge reason why I am motivated to cook. I like to come up with lists of recipes and ingredients that my family loves and I use those to plan out our meals for a week. I also like to look for new ways to fix up "old" favorites either by adding more flavor or by making them more healthy.

This apron is so cute!

I think cooking your own food makes it taste better since you put in the effort! You can also tailor the recipes so you get just what you want!

I am motivated to cook because I NEVER Cooked anything in my 20s which caused me to gain weight. Now in my 30s I realize I want to live to 100 so I have discovered a love for me and as a result cooking and eating healthy. I think my subscription to Real Simple and the Food Network are inspirations as well!

I look through my cookbooks or magazines and get excited about different recipes. Especially things for dinner for my family =}

SO CUTE!!! Boo to living in Canada. Although, knowing me, I would totally accidentally light it on fire. I have a knack for doing things like that, much as I enjoy cooking.

A couple things motivate me to cook: it's nice to take care of other people by cooking for them, it gives me a sense of accomplishment, it's relaxing, and it's nice to know that I can make something that is healthy and tasty and I'M the one who controls the ingredients.

I motivate myself to cook (and to learn how to cook) because I wanted to eat healthier. I also had surgery that required me to eat different foods, so I was sorta "forced" to learn to cook. ;)

But it was worth it after I made my first healthy and delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup!

I motivate myself to cook by trying new recipes and/or buying great, local, organic ingredients and enjoying them in a meal.

It depends.. A new recipe is a great motivator, the mood, the kids, whats going on. But I love trying out new recipes, and gourmet is fun I think. My kids enjoy trying foods from other countries too.

I motivate myself by thinking of the money I save by doing so, leaving more to spend on fun things and clothes in a smaller size!

Motivation for cooking is not my best area, but usually what does it is finding a really good recipe that's also somewhat easy.

To stay motivated.. I stay SPICEY!!!! I spice up the music... I breathe in the herbs... I feel the tingle of chilli... see the colourful plates for my family... every taste is different.. no two meals the same... trying something new at least once a week! Keepin' it spicey .. keeps my motivation on track!

Love this apron! I keep myself motivated by never letting myself go hungry. I try to eat every 3 hours. I find that if I stick to a regular schedule I am much more likely to prepare and want healthier options, than if I go too long without food and just want to shove in whatever is convenient and fast.

My 2 young boys motivate me to cook! I feel that it is my responsibility and duty to provide healthy yet, fun meals for them everyday. I want them to grow-up knowing that their mom loved them enough to make sure they ate a variety of healthy foods. I also don't want them to be picky kids because picky kids turn into picky adults. I know that I still struggle with that today. But, by making a variety of healthy meals for my family I have in turn gotten to know and now enjoy, a lot of different foods that I would have turned my nose to, before I had kids! :)

My husband motivates me to cook by enjoying new recipes. I love to experiment and, luckily, my husband will eat anything I fix!

My cooking motivation is health! If I cook it I know what's in it & how healthy it is.

I love to cook! Always have. Cooking is my refuge away from the craziness of the day! One motivation for me is knowing exactly what's in my food and what I'm eating. I've gotten the wrong orders before and have found items in my food that shouldn't be there - so my motivation is to not be grossed out, I can just do it myself!

I love to cook. It's pretty easy to get motivated. Just ready the ingredients to prepacked food or the calorie counts to take out. Then I'll gladly get my butt working in the kitchen!

I try to think about saving money! What sounds better, a fabulous vacation, or take-out Indian food?

Such a cute apron. I love eating healthy homecooked meals so that is all the motivation I need to get cooking. Even the unhealthy stuff just tastes better when it's homemade.

I make it fun by attending book sales at my local library every Saturday and rummaging for great cookbook finds. You'd be amazed at the treasures they are selling for as little as 50 cents! I feel a sense of accomplishment from finding a great book and mastering some of its most delicious recipes -- plus, at the end of a long day, I know that creating something in the kitchen will be therapeutic.

I motivate myself to cook by subscribing to several blogs with healthy recipes. They all sound so good, I just want to make them!

Oh, adorable, big bow and all! I have been wanting an apron for a long time now!

My six year old is in remission with Leukemia, so that is a BIG motivator to always cook healthy for her. I am not a good cook at all, so I try simple things and still manage to mess them up! My 'key' is planning ahead and buying what I need. Now that I have switched to largely organic shopping has actually become easier since it narrows and sharpens the focus a bit. Good luck to everyone!!


I don't need any motivation when I am hungry :) I just make something ASAP.
