GE has invited me and one of my readers (possibly YOU) to its GE Monogram Experience Center in Louisville, Kentucky. GE’s Momsperience event promises “luxurious learning and sharing (and even some cooking!)”

GE describes its Experience Center as “a theater for the senses, a 10,000-sq.-ft. complex filled with an array of stimulating and appealing spaces – all designed to showcase the latest in innovation with our GE Monogram appliances.”

The event will begin on the evening of Sunday, May 15th and end Tuesday, May 15th mid day. GE will provide your airfare, hotel, meals and ground transportation in Louisville.

So…if you are free those days and would like to join me, please make sure you are a follower of this blog on Facebook and leave a comment below telling me some of the biggest challenges you face in the kitchen by midnight April 20th.

I will announce the winner on Thursday, April 21st and I will need to have specific contact information from you on that day, so I can forward it to GE to schedule your trip. So please make sure I can reach you.

I look forward to this experience and to getting to know you. Indeed, we will bond.

Let there be luxury!

    My biggest challenge is trying to work in the kitchen around my twin 3 yr olds!

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 10:58 am #

      I can’t imagine my three-year-old times two! I bet you sleep well at night.

  2. Larissa Dickens April 18, 2011 at 7:49 am #

    My biggest challenge is creativity and trying not to fix the same old thing for dinner. P.S. I would love to bond with you in my hometown.

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:00 am #

      I do that, too. You know it’s easy because we know how to make it and we don’t even have to have a list of ingredients when we are at the store. You can’t beat easy. Plus, it’s comforting that you already know your family likes it.

  3. Rebecca April 18, 2011 at 8:45 am #

    My biggest challenge is having a workspace that’s efficient for two cooks (and two chefs in training).

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:01 am #

      Yes! Efficiency is a problem I have as well, Rebecca. That and a few picky eaters.

  4. Aubrey Gideon April 18, 2011 at 12:02 pm #

    My biggest challenge in the kitchen is having time to get in there! As well as making fast but good food for my family!

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:02 am #

      I have some old standbys, but several of those involve sour cream. So while everyone likes them (especially me), I too need some standbys that are better for us.

  5. Lucia Wille April 18, 2011 at 8:37 pm #

    I am currently experimenting with baking artisanal breads at home and my biggest challenge there is getting a good crust using my home oven.

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:03 am #

      This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

  6. Angie April 19, 2011 at 1:56 pm #

    My biggest challenge is finding the time to make something besides the old standbys (which usually only take about 1/2 an hour to make). This sounds like an awesome experience!

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:03 am #

      I hear you, Sister!

  7. Tiffany April 19, 2011 at 7:45 pm #

    We use our kitchen every single day (we only eat out once a month, more or less). The trouble with using your kitchen is that it gets dirty! And with a toddler under foot, finding the time to clean up after every meal is tough. So in all honestly, our kitchen is dirty (like, embarrassingly dirty) about 75% of the time. I’ve been tempted to go to disposable plates, but I just can’t do that to the environment!

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:05 am #

      Where’s Alice from The Brady Bunch. We totally NEED her!

  8. Teresa April 19, 2011 at 8:47 pm #

    where do I begin with my biggest challenge but I guess after cooking for 25 years just tonight I had laid out chicken and drew a complete blank. I mean It’s just chicken but I had ran out of ideas and I think I literally stared at it for 10 minutes before I just threw it on the grill. That’s original.

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:20 am #

      Chicken block. I go for the grill a lot, too. Sometimes simple is the way to go.

  9. Gina April 19, 2011 at 9:00 pm #

    I feel like a short order cook. My husband is eating low carb – he’s lost over 100 pounds, so I really want to be supportive. My younger daughter is a vegetarian – happy to encourage that pursuit. My older daughter has champagne tastes – sushi? exotic sauces? I like every thing, and it likes me! Love, love, love to cook, but sometimes feel like a puppy chasing its tail. The GE kitchen looks like it has enough space to accommodate this craziness I call dinner.

    • Carole Lewis April 19, 2011 at 9:37 pm #

      Well, Gina. I thouhgt this is the perfect contest for me and I really really want to win, but I have family coming and cannot attend So started looking for the sure winner.

      I love your comment, and hope you win.

      Good Luck

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:19 am #

      Great comment! The kitchen = work a lot of the time for me, too. Music helps. I like 80′s music and it totally takes my mind off of what I am doing. Also, I don’t know if you do this too, but I feel like I never sit down. I end up standing and eating while everyone else is served.

  10. Kirsten April 19, 2011 at 9:12 pm #

    I love to cook and be in the kitchen. It’s the hub of the household. My kitchen is horribly outdated and needs a complete makeover. I think the lighting is especially weak. And the counter tops. And the floors my kids have abused. I’d love to go back to my old ‘hood to get some ideas and kitchen envy. Thanks for offering the contest!

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:16 am #

      It’s definitely the hardest working room in our house and the one I clean the most. I get really tired of cleaning it, but so it goes!

  11. Melissa April 19, 2011 at 9:38 pm #

    My challenge is space. I love to cook but I don’t have a lot of space due to how my kitchen is laid out. It does not stop me but I wish I had a more room and places to put things.

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:14 am #

      I don’t like to keep many things on the counter. When there’s too much it makes my kitchen feel hectic. I wish I had more room for toasters and crock pots and such.

  12. Jeanne April 20, 2011 at 12:59 am #

    I would love the chance to go to GE and learn about the new appliances…of course I would for sure love to get new ones so I could bake all the yummy goodies! :)

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:13 am #

      Happy to test anything you make, Sister!

  13. Victoria Jansma April 20, 2011 at 5:51 am #

    Ok, the biggest challenge that I have in the kitchen is actually using it to cook! Just moved away from home with my family, and had to really start using it! I actually cook now at least three times a week! Luckily,my husband plays in a league which saves me from cooking a fourth night! I bought a kids cookbook so that my kids can share in the agony with me. Enjoy using items that I registered for 10 years ago. I almost burned my house down forgetting that I had something on the stove to answer a skype call! So bottom line, I face many challenges in my kitchen, but trying to overcome them, one at a time…

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:12 am #

      Chef Victoria – I love it!

  14. tracy April 20, 2011 at 10:22 am #

    My biggest challenge is space. We live in a 100 year old home that was built with a small, small kitchen space. We cannot afford to move walls or do major construction – so I have to work within it’s small boundaries. Such a challenge with a family of five. Dinner parties are a huge challenge as cabinet and counter space is close to nil.

    Thank you for this super fun opportunity!

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:11 am #

      I love old houses. I bet it is full of character!

  15. Jennifer April 20, 2011 at 10:57 am #

    My challenges in the kitchen? How about the fact that there is never enough time; that my kids leave toys all over the floor and step on my toes when I’m trying to do the hustle/bustle of getting dinner together; that my husband always loads the dirty dishes into the sink instead of the dishwashwer; or that my current set of knives suck? How about the fact that i’m always missing that one obscure ingredient that the “simple” recipe calls for? How about the fact that the automatic pilot light on my stove doesn’t work right? Any of those qualify as a challenge that gets me a Louisville vacation with a great friend? :)

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 11:08 am #

      I wish you were closer so we could have a beverage and lament our kitchen woes. I have a thing about the knvies, but it’s more that I always wanted to have great knife skills. Not like ninja knife skills, but super-fast and impressive chopper skills. Maybe if there’s a chef at this thing I can pull em aside and ask them to teach me that. Miss you and hope you have a good day, Jennifer!

  16. jeannett April 20, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    my biggest challenge is having the uninterrupted time!!!! season of life, right?

    • Heather April 20, 2011 at 8:04 pm #


  17. Diana Hatcher April 20, 2011 at 11:21 pm #

    Wouldn’t be able to find a sitter so count me out of the contest… but I still want to comment: My biggest challenge is keeping my kids out of the fridge while I’m cooking. Both the 2 and 4 year old are capable of easily opening the fridge but don’t bother until I go in there to cook. Then the condiments become towers, apples start rolling across the floor, they suddenly want to pour their own juice, and my 2 year old is trying to feed the dogs leftovers.
    I’m always torn between being glad that they are occupied in front of me where I can keep an eye on them while I’m distracted by cooking, and feeling frustration over the food items I am tripping over or stepping on.

    • Heather April 21, 2011 at 9:30 am #

      Have you thought about buying them some aprons and letting them help you? They could set the table, get mixing bowls or pots out (if they are down low). False errands work, too. I keep mine busy for a good 10 mintues or so telling them they have to wash their hands if they want to help. It takes them forever to do anything, so that buys some time for me to make the magic happen. (And by magic I mean a grilled cheese).

      Thanks for reading TheMommyhood, Diana! Hope you have a great day.

  18. Mia April 21, 2011 at 4:41 pm #

    OMG, I want to go! That sounds like so much fun!! :D

  19. Mia April 21, 2011 at 4:42 pm #

    Shoot….looks like I missed the cut off :(

    • Heather April 22, 2011 at 9:41 am #

      Sorry, Mia! But thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a Happy Easter!
