Sam's Club for the Holidays!


We spent Thanksgiving this year with my mama's side of the family up in "the country" and as we were waiting for the arrival of the turkey {always the task of my cousin Donna, and always tender and delicious}, my other cousin's wife, who was hosting this gathering, pulled out yet more desserts from her refrigerator.

As soon as I saw the box I start to salivate.  Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes from Sam's Club. Swoon.

Red Velvet cheesecake. It was delicious.

And pumpkin cheesecake. So pretty. Didn't have a stitch of room in my belly to try this one, but it was beautiful and I heard, also delicious.

Course most everybody is familiar with Sam's Club membership-only retail warehouse stores and the merchandise they carry - top name brand products for all around the home, electronics, jewelry, tools, domestic housewares, books, pet supplies, tires and automotive, special seasonal merchandise and more. In other words, if you haven't considered Sam's Club yet, they can really help with paring down your holiday gift list.

And, then of course, there's the entire grocery section for those parties and big gatherings. With things like Cheesecake Factory Red Velvet Cheesecakes. Just sayin'...

Right now Sam's is making it even easier to shop for the holidays with an online gift finder by person, price and popularity, but they've also got you covered on holiday menu ideas and holiday recipes (click the drop down menu for a category listing). You can read about family holiday traditions and view holiday videos by other Sam's Club members, and even upload and share your own.  Sam's Club has even extended Cyber Monday into a Cyber Week with best values all the way through Sunday, December 5th, so there's still time to check out their online deals over the weekend.

Not a member? Right now through the end of December, you can join Sam's Club as a new member, and receive a free rotisserie chicken and regular cheesecake when you present the printable coupon from their front page. Have your printer ready and click on the offer in the lower left hand corner and get shopping!

Of course, beside grocery items, Sam's Club has a wide variety of household items for the kitchen too, including food storage and tools, dinnerware, glassware, kitchen storage, bakeware - you name it. And of course, pots and pans!  

Yes, it's time to talk about the giveaway!!! How would you like a chance to win a Wolfgang Puck 18-piece heavy gauge stainless steel cookware set from Sam's Club?  Though there is some variation in the set pieces year to year, I purchased a similar one some years back - probably at least 10 now - and it is still going strong. I literally use it near daily and it still looks and performs like new. While cooking with stainless does take some getting used to, I LOVE my cookware and this collection is a high quality, heavy stainless cookware set. Nothing lightweight here. You are going to love it too.

One reader will win a complete 18-piece 
Wolfgang Puck Stainless Steel Cookware Set including:

1 qt. saucepan with pour spout and colander cover
3 qt. saucepan with pour spout and colander cover
5 qt. dutch oven with glass cover
8 qt. stockpot with glass cover
11" sauté pan with glass cover
8’" omelet pan
10" omelet pan; and
Six tools (slotted spoon, solid spoon, solid turner,
slotted turner, whisk, fork)
