making a mess – plus a giveaway!

Recipe: eton mess

We’ve got three things going on here today, so keep your pants on! Are you ready?

First – I finished processing the photos from Antelope Valley. Serious orange-out is all I can say. That, and California poppies are my favorite wildflowers ever. Okay, I like the other guys too – I just love that there are so MANY of them.

poppies glow like little lanterns in the sun

If you want to see enough flowers to make your allergies tickle you can view day 1 and day 2 on my photo blog.

Next – we have a giveaway. I’ve been waiting to give this thing away for about… four months, but it had to get the stamp of approval from the law-talkin’ guys first. No matter, because it is certainly worth the wait. Back in December, I hosted a Nintendo-sponsored Wii Fit Plus party for my gal pals in Boulder! Easiest party I’ve ever had to host because all I had to do was send out invitations and show up. Nintendo took care of the space, the equipment, the food, and beverages.

everyone was let loose to try the yoga and the games after a quick demo

we had a blast

Oh, that was seriously fun. What I love about Wii Fit Plus and the Wii in general is how it’s more than just a gaming system. It gets you moving and it can be a social activity (I’m definitely hosting Wii parties at my house!). Exercise made fun. I’m a big fan of the multiplayer mode. My favorite activity is the Rhythm Kung Fu.

that’s my Mii character

we even have a Mii pet for kaweah

The good people at Nintendo have given me an additional Wii and a Wii Fit Plus game and I’m giving them away here! You merely have to answer the question:

How will you fit some fit in with the Wii Fit Plus from Nintendo?

Let me translate: How are you gonna get your Wii on?

Here are the rules:

1) Leave a comment on THIS POST answering the question above by 11:59 pm MDT Sunday, April 25, 2010.
2) One entry per person. If you submit multiple entries, you will be disqualified.
3) The winner will be selected at random using a random number generator and announced on Monday, April 26, 2010.
4) Contest is only open to US residents 18 years or older.
5) Anyone related to me cannot enter.
6) Nintendo employees are ineligible to win.

Full disclosure: I received a free Wii™ system and Wii Fit™ Plus package (including Balance Board™) from Nintendo. The Wii Fit Plus party was entirely sponsored by Nintendo. The giveaway Wii system and Wii Fit Plus package were given to me by Nintendo, and I’m giving them away.

And finally: the recipe. California strawberries are popping up in the grocery stores around here. Yeah, I know they aren’t local, but who can resist a luscious red strawberry after months of winter? Heck, who can resist a luscious red strawberry ever? My favorite way to enjoy a strawberry is straight up, but a close second is an Eton Mess.


separate the egg whites from the yolks

Eton what? Eton mess. The first time I ever had it was in Sydney at Restaurant Balzac with Jeremy and our friends, Kell and Jerad. It’s a traditional British dessert of strawberries, some booze, whipped cream, and meringue – all mixed together. It looks like a mess. I have made it three times in the past year and could never achieve a final photograph that didn’t resemble a mess – a delicious, tantalizing mess.

make meringues

bake them

I lightly macerated the strawberries with some Grand Marnier and let them sit while I baked the meringues. I remember making meringues when I was a kid in Virginia. They’d come out of the oven nicely baked and dry. Then within hours, the humidity would turn them into a sticky disaster. Not so in Colorado. I can let the meringues sit out for days and they remain perfectly dry throughout.

assemble the parts

mix together

Since the meringue is pretty sweet, there is no need to add sugar to the cream. Just whip it to soft peaks (I overwhipped mine – that’s what happens when you step away from the stand mixer for ONE second). I fold the whipped cream and meringue together first and add the strawberries last so that the whole thing doesn’t turn completely pink. It’s a good idea to serve this right after assembly or else the meringue will eventually soggify.

the best kind of mess

Eton Mess
[print recipe]

4 (150g) egg whites
pinch of salt
1 (225g) cup sugar
1 lb. (500g) strawberries, washed, topped, and diced
dash of Grand Marnier
1+ cups heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks

Preheat oven to 200°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment. Combine the egg whites and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer (or in any old bowl if using hand mixer). Whisk on high for a few minutes until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar in while beating on high (of course, my mixer flings some of the sugar around the kitchen when I do this) until stiff peaks and glossy. Fill a piping bag fitted with a wide tip (plain or fluted is fine) with meringue. Pipe long strips of meringue and some little decorative pieces (like stars, buttons, etc.) on the parchment. Bake for an hour or until the meringues are hard when tapped. Try to keep them white (they will start to brown if you let them go too long). Meanwhile, combine the strawberries and Grand Marnier in a bowl and seal tightly with plastic wrap. Shake the hell out of the bowl. Set aside. Remove the meringues from oven and let cool completely before removing from parchment. Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Crumble the meringue tubes into a large bowl. Add whipped cream and gently fold together. If it’s a big solid mass, add more cream to desired consistency. Then add strawberries and fold until they are coated with cream. Serve immediately. 8 to 10 servings.

  1. Marissa says:

    I will have some of my best friends over to get our Wii on. :)

  2. Shuinn says:

    After a long day at the hospital nothing would cheer me up more than some rhythm kung fu and wii yoga with friends and family (while I’ve got one of your delicious recipes roasting in the oven or stewing on the stove)!

  3. Collette says:

    I will get my Wii on with my toddler son instead having to dance around the living room to the horrible 70’s cop show music emanating from his beloved sit and spin. (I know. Did you even know they made those things anymore? And with music??? Thanks Grandma and Grandpa.)

  4. Liza (Jersey Cook) says:

    I am currently unemployed so I have all the time in the world to play around with the Wii fit!

  5. Audrey says:

    I am currently a nursing student who has spent most of her time sitting on her butt studying about diseases, and not getting enough exercise! The massive amount of reading, completing assignments, and spending hours at clinical has made me quite the coach potato, and I find it rather contradictory of me since my future profession is supposed to promote healthy lifestyles! If I had the wii at home, I would definitely find every possible excuse to get away from the desk and get my wii fit on! Especially if I can find a dance related game and release my inhibitions in the privacy of my home (or do some yoga). I’ll have my friends over for a Mario wii party this summer since I’ve neglected them all semester :x

  6. Amy (Shiny Cooking) says:

    I won’t have to go to friends’ or relatives’ houses to get my Wii on anymore! I can do 5000 ski jumps in a row if I want to without my nephew offering me endless “advice” or my niece trying to take the remote. ;-)

  7. Grant says:

    My wife and would Wii fit together in cross training for this year’s Ride of the Rockies! love your blog – keep up the beautiful photography!

  8. Hannah says:

    Well, I’d seriously love a Wii and Wii Fit simply so that I get some exercise, period! Honestly, I’m embarrassingly sedentary most of the time… I also love all of the options it offers, like yoga!

  9. D says:

    Use it in my parents house with whoever wants to join!

  10. Melissa says:

    It would be great to get my Wii on at home!! I could really use the exercise and it is fun too!

  11. chris says:

    These meringues are perfect! I wish I could get mine remotely close to these.

    How am I gonna get my Wii on? Anyway that will help my butt to fall off :) My schedule is so wacky at the moment, any gym routine is taking a beating.

  12. Emmy says:

    Well, I would love a Wii Fit because I am seriously funky looking when I work out–big red face, panting, general sweatiness. No need to bring that to the public! Plus I work weird hours so it might be nice to do some home exercise late at night when I get home rather than my usual morning workout which assures that I’ll be all tired and sore on the job, when I actually need to be strong.

  13. Manisha says:

    Heh. That party was fun! I’ve been using the Wii Fit to lose weight while having a ton of fun!

  14. elizabethk says:

    I am committed (well planning to commit now that I have had my bday blow out!) – to losing weight first and foremost for health reasons, me and my family – by walking and then I hope jogging. I have a 2 year old that will likely have to go with me on some of my outings (when I can’t drag my rear out earlier then his wake-up time) — SO, I would get my Wii on when I am not able to get outside to get active, I am sure my 2 year old would love to watch and at some point participate even — and learn better fitness that I did at that age. :D

  15. anandi says:

    Ooh, Wii Fit Me, please. BabyT, though awesome, has made my body a little less awesome, and I need fitness stuff I can do at home while she naps.

    And OMG that Eton Mess looks yummy. Reminds me vaguely of Berries Ath, though they didn’t have meringue and they used all sorts of berries.

  16. C.D. says:

    I work from home and keep an exercise bike near my desk. The WII would be a nice addition to my ‘office gym.’ :-)

  17. caroline says:

    Strawberries with the meringues look gorgeous!

    I would love that Wii Fit allows you to get fit at home, so that it can fit my own (ever changing) schedule

  18. Bosun says:

    Wii yoga would be really nice to return home to. By the way, I love kaweah the wii pet! Are you going to have the wii pet generate random numbers for this giveaway?

  19. Memoria says:

    1. The flowers look absolutely lovely! I love your nature shots.

    2. I would use the Wii fit to lose weight. I really need to get back down to what I was over a year ago (read: before I started a food blog).

    3. The Eton Mess is a beautiful mess! I love how you decorated it with the fanned strawberries.

  20. Geneva says:

    I will use the Wii fit to get in shape for my sister’s wedding.

  21. barbara says:

    I’m sorry I’m not eligible for the Wii, but how do you get your meringues to stay white? Mine always go a taupe colour. I love this dessert.

  22. Ruth Ann says:

    Beautiful photos as usual- both the wild flowers and the Eton Mess. (BTW what a great name for a dessert- it seems almost like a mixed up Pavlova.)
    I would love a Wii, first to make a cool Mii like yours and then to have fun!

  23. Piee says:

    I will get my wii on to lose those 3 pounds I gained since I graduated from college. Bleh =/

  24. Hamberguesa says:

    After being laid off a few weeks ago, I’d use the Wii to keep focused and motivated, and there’s nothing wrong with getting in shape for bikini season!

  25. Debi says:

    Well, I hate the gym and I love video games, and I desperately need some exercise. I think that makes me a good candidate for Wii Fit. :-) Plus, the one time I played it at a friend’s house, I beat the high score on “Big Top Juggling” and I want to keep that up; I’m sure they’re trying to beat my score!

  26. sara says:

    I would love a Wii fit because I will be going into withdrawal soon when my housemate who owns one moves out of our house in a couple of months!

  27. Terri says:

    Exercise for me is not fun. My niece feels the same way I do about exercise. But my niece got a Wii and Wii fit for Christmas and she said she actually enjoys exercising now. And it would make my doctor very happy if I moved now and then…

  28. Kitty says:

    I’m gonna play Wii with my apartment-mates to counteract all the bad-for-your-waistline foods I plan on plying them with next year >:}

  29. Leslie says:

    My husband spends way too much time in virtual environments (like Second Life) and needs to exercise. He just admitted that he should have gone hiking with me today.

    I think the Wii fit would trick him into thinking he’s still on the computer. I hope to fight him off for the Yoga/Balance/Strength training. Our kids don’t have Nintendo DS, Wii, XBox, etc. They’d think this was the bomb!

  30. Dixie says:

    What an incredible giveaway! If I had a Wii Fit, I’d challenge my diet-obsessed roomie to a weight-off: her crazy diets vs. my wii fit regimen! :)

  31. Andrea says:

    Eton Mess is one of my all-time favourite summer puddings and works equally well with raspberries or mango and passionfruit.
    The Brits mash up the whole or halved strawberries with a fork before mixing the ingredients together which streaks the whole mess a pretty pink and diffuses the cream and meringue with the strawberry flavour. The strawberries shouldn’t need chewing and the whole delicious mess should just melt in the mouth. Yum!

  32. Julie says:

    I think Wii is a great invention for small flats located in cities with horrible weather conditions! I love to work out but sometimes when I look outside the window, I just really don’t feel like going out. And if I wanted to fit some gym equipment in our flat, I’d have to ask my boyfriend to move out. :) So Wii with its endless programs would be a compromise!

    Btw, never seen such a meringue perfection! Mine never come out so even!

  33. Sherry says:

    Will you be giving the Wii and Wii Fit Plus together to one person or are they being split up? Me, I would use Wii Fit Plus to try and get into yoga and hopefully get more in shape… I don’t have to lose any weight (if I do, I probably would be considered underweight) but since I don’t exercise at all and haven’t for years, I probably am so out of shape, it’s scary to even think about.

  34. maninas says:

    I really love your little meringues!

  35. Kelly says:

    I would love to work out with my kindergartener in the privacy of our living room. The gym really intimidates me!

  36. Kristi says:

    I think I’ll have one of the Wii parties like you did! They look amazingly entertaining. Plus, my hubby and I will be able to work off all the delicious, but not so healthy foods I’ve been making for us!

  37. Jenny says:

    We just cancelled our gym membership so this would be perfect for me to keep up my routine on rainy days (and this winter when I go into hibernation)!

  38. Lindsay says:

    I’d use my WiiFit to keep myself awake in the wee hours of the night/morning when I start my Master’s Degree in September. Nothing like a little exercise to keep you awake at 3 am when you’re writing an essay (and probably far healthier than the 12 cups of coffee I’d have to consume otherwise)!

  39. Troy says:

    Love the mess!

    I would Wii-off both jelly doughnuts I ate yesterday so I could eat another one tomorrow!

  40. Nan @ tastingoutloud says:

    We were gym members until earlier this month. The Wii would Fit right in now! Love the strawberry “Mess”. It reminds me a bit of a Pavlova having a bad day — but in a good way! I love desserts like this! Chocolate meringues are great with strawberries too. Your poppies are gorgeous – just like last week’s — great images! The extremely shallow DOF in the mass of color looks so ethereal. Lovely!

  41. Megan says:

    I need a Wii to diminish what my foodie habits have done to my body!

  42. Kristin says:

    I would probably Wii alone…otherwise it’d be just like playing ping pong with my family. We’d laugh ourselves silly until we could hardly stand up. Plus, if my son were in the house HE’D be using it. He loves his friends’ Wiis. And maybe my terribly klutzy daughter (she takes after her mother) could learn some balance & grace.

    I’ve drooled at Nigella’s Eton mess. I don’t know how much longer I can resist! But really, the thought of soggified meringue is terrifying.

  43. Sara says:

    i will definitely turn it into a friendly family competetition to get my wii on!! :)

  44. Ciaochowlinda says:

    What a great giveaway. I’d be using this WII fit after breakfast each day. It would be a fun way to stay in shape. Your meringues and strawberries are lovely too.

  45. merry jennifer says:

    I’d finally get to kick my husband off the sports channel and get us both Wii-ing. Would be a blast!

  46. Sharlene says:

    I love the idea of using the Wii Fit when it’s raining outside or when I get home really late from work and can’t muster up the desire to go to the gym.

    I’ve never had an eton mess but it looks like it’s right up my alley! It’s been bookmarked for future reference. Thanks!

  47. Kat says:

    How many ways can I Wii me? First thing when I get up to get the blood flowing (I HATE “exercises”, but will do an activity until I drop!). Also as a replacement for my daily walks on days the weather is too much hot or cold. Finally as fun with darling hubby and friends! Well, those are the ones that come to mind as I sit foggily slurping my morning tea – I bet I could find wii more ways to go!

  48. Judith says:

    Oh, wow! I had been looking at the Wii for a while but I could never afford it. I would love to have one so that I can add some technology to my yoga and get feedback. I don’t have a teacher and can’t afford classes, so a Wii would be awesome for me — I’d even be willing to buy a TV if I had one :-D

  49. Michele says:

    Thanks for the chance to win! I will use the Wii Fit to have some family fun with my daughter and husband. We’re always trying to find different ways to get our daughter active, and this will be great fun for all of us. And for her friends when they come over. Thanks! Michele

  50. Amanda says:

    Wii Fit will get us out of the kitchen and off the couch so we can exercise off all the calories and eat more of your creations! Thanks for the chance to win. The meringues and the flowers are gorgeous!

  51. calyn says:

    I don’t know how I’d get my wii on, but the fun seems like in the trying!

  52. Hannah V. says:

    I will use after getting home from the airport every week when it’s too dark to run outside!

  53. Katie B says:

    I will get my boyfriend moving! He complains about gaining weight but can never make it home from work in time to go to the gym.

    And I’ll use the tennis game, since I 1) can’t find a tennis partner and 2) don’t want to have to pay the fee to use the tennis courts.

    And I’ll practice my yoga!

  54. Julie says:

    After eating a batch of the FATANSTIC Eton Mess I will get my Wii on!!!!!! Thanks for the great recipies!!!!

  55. Caitlin says:

    I think the Wii would actually get me playing any sort of video game with the fiance – at least that’s his hope! I’m told Wii boxing is pretty funny to watch too :) And now I want to make meringues or pavlova to have with strawberries. Dang Wisconsin and its lack of strawberries!

  56. Beatrice says:

    The Wii is awesome! I’d use it to get some yoga in before I go to bed at night. I also have times throughout the day when I’ve realized I’ve been sitting at my computer working too long, and my butt hurts, and I need to move! Perfect time to jump on the Wii!

  57. Julie says:

    I would love to take it to my mom’s house and get her involved, too :)

  58. Sarah says:

    Oh man I will be gettin’ my wii on with my girls and having some wii parties! It’s so much fun! I’ve loved doing the yoga at my friends’ houses!

  59. Melissa says:

    I will wii yoga by myself and I’ll wii bowl with the whole family. And then my children will take over and wii everything else.

  60. Caitlin says:

    I love your blog and have found it to be a great inspiration for trying new things in my kitchen over the last few years! I think having a Wii Fit would be a great excuse to have friends over this summer, and it would be a great alternative to sitting our butts on the couch to watch TV!

  61. Kath says:

    I am 60 (but feel like I’m 30) and determined to stay in shape so I will age well. I love visual stimulation when I’m working out, so I think the Wii would be perfect for me. I love the variety that it offers. And I need to workout to counteract the effects of my food blog!

  62. Claudia says:

    Wow! What an awesome giveaway!
    I am a translator working from home, and I could finally fit in some fitness time during my lunch break! How awesome would that be?!

  63. Barbara says:

    I’d use the Wii to get some exercise & have some fun so I can enjoy more of your recipes!

  64. Ashley says:

    I think I will get my Wii on by having some awesome friends over and have fun while working out!

  65. Anne-Sophie says:

    I would fit some fit somewhere between work, school and sleep, and have some fun with the Wii!!

  66. Brit says:

    I was just told that I had borderline diabetes and now I’m trying to find ways to get active and this would be a perfect way.

  67. carmen says:

    i’d love to try the pilates program that the wii fit offers (at least that i’ve heard of). i’ve always been intimidated by meringues but you make it sound approachable! thanks. :)

  68. DrMeglet says:

    It might give me something to do together with my husband other than sitting and watching TV.

  69. Pamela Densmore says:

    Hi Jen, I’ve been reading your blog for years. I look forward to every new post, always a pleasure to read. I’ve been coveting a Wii for quite a while. I’m hoping it will help me in my desire to get healthier.

  70. Andrea says:

    My family would love a Wii. My husband and I need any oppurtunity to be able to do something together when you have a 3,4 and 5 year old.

  71. Terri says:

    We play Wii Sports with our grandchildren when we visit them. My husband and I would love to get in a little “practice” time to be able to surprise our grandkids with our new skills.

  72. BlissfulBite says:

    I would use a Wii to switch up my everyday workout plan! (Plus, it’s SO much fun!)

  73. ally says:

    I will get the Wiiii on with my husband! Working out together at home will be great motivation to lose those extra 20 pounds in time for summer!

  74. Mehgan says:

    Unfortunately, my kids have stollen my Wii and I can no longer get my work outs in. It is now used only for Mario Kart and Dr Mario. I miss my Wii workouts very much and would love to be able to get my morning work outs in again. It was awesome to be able to track my daily workouts and my weightloss.

  75. Dawn says:

    I would enjoy doing Wii yoga.

  76. kat says:

    I live on the 2nd floor. The people below me would love it if I had something with a bit less up and down actions.
    Love the pictures.

  77. cathy says:

    wii would love to get fit in my living room on those stormy summer days when playing outside isn’t an option!

  78. Laura says:

    I will use it to get fit at home. Since my dog is already home alone 12 hours a day it’s hard to leave him to go to the gym (great excuse!).

    Thanks for the giveaway and all the fantastic recipes. Now if I could just find myself a Chinese grandma I’d be set!

  79. Maggie says:

    I’d love a wii – my grandson’s and I could yoga together!

  80. Diane says:

    I use the wii to encourage my little sister to be more active, and get a healthy body weight

  81. Pomme says:

    By the way, how do you manage these perfectly shaped meringues? Even with a piping thing like yours, mine are nowhere near as perfect!
    And I see you separate the white from the yolk without using the shell of the egg… ho do you do that??
    Can’t enter the contest (not in the US, plus I’ve already got a Wii: I work out my abs by laughing at my BF flapping his wings when he thinks is a giant bird, and he laughs at me when I’m a fierce Kung-Fu fighter!) best of luck to everyone!!

  82. Alicia P. says:

    I’ll wii wii wii all the way home.
    Can you tell I have a 6 month old kid? Makes exercise hard to fit in – Wii would work!

  83. Fran says:

    I’ll get my Wii on with yoga. Having this at home would be just what I need to get off my unfit tush and to get moving without worrying about being around other people when I’m trying to get myself into shape. I’ve thought about buying a system for myself, but winning one would be so much more immediate and devoid of the myriad excuses I seem to come up with so easily.

  84. Mina says:

    I will kick, smash and run my way through Wii episodes so that I can eat that extra T-rex-sized scoop of gelato.

  85. Margaret says:

    I’ll be boxing, doing yoga, and playing tennis on those days when the weather is just so gross that being outside is unappealing and all my pent up energy has no where to go!

  86. Patricia A. Dooley says:

    Thanks for sharing your Wii with us. I would get my Wii on by having my boys and hubby participate with me on Family night. Every Friday night one family member chooses what we do and what we eat and everyone else has to go along with it–no complaining! It has become so special in my boys’ lives that they cancel other events to be there (they are only 10 and 7–so we are talking play dates, school activities and overnights–but important to them at this age). My Family night (which is the next one coming up!) would be Wii Fit Plus (the food might not be so Fit conscious, but totally enjoyable).

  87. Amy says:

    I will get my butt out of bed a little earlier!

  88. gfpumpkins says:

    I would love to win a Wii! I’ve recommitted myself to getting in shape this spring. As a grad student I find it hard to get to the gym or do regularly scheduled activities, so a Wii Fit would be fabulous to use at home, and definitely something new to keep me engaged for quite some time, I’m sure.
    And the poppies are gorgeous :)

  89. steph says:

    My daughter and I have been saving for one, we would totally play all the time. She is 11 and loves to play games with me still.

  90. Ann says:

    Wii will be in the best shape Wii have been in in years, ready for more Real Butter and other golden goodies.

  91. Nicole says:

    wii is like playing but with added benefits — it keeps us fit and very well entertained and makes working out fun to do.

    Strawberries and cream are definitely my favorite way of consuming the juicy fruit add to it the crunchy sweet meringue? I bet it taste heavenly!

  92. Alexis says:

    We just bought a new house and so I would definitely have to invite all my friends over for a wii house warming.

  93. Josie says:

    Holy cow I want to eat those strawberries.

    I want to try all the new wii games! I have only played baseball and bowling at a friend’s house. I love the idea of the yoga!

  94. Natalie says:

    The Wii would be perfect for me since my schedule is so busy and my commute so long, I have no time to get to the gym. With, Wii, there are no excuses for skipping exercises if all I have to do is plug it in!

  95. Mary Beth Garrison says:

    The Wii looks like such great fun. After a lifetime of sitting at a desk this is the answer to a 63 year old’s motivation issues. Maybe I could entice my hubby to join in the fun.

  96. Stephanie says:

    I thought I was too full to ever eat again after my huge breakfast, but those strawberries are making me drool.

    The first thing I would do with a Wii Fit is to become an expert in tightrope walking. My friend has one, and the first time I went over, I spent half an hour walking the rope…jumping over those chompy black things is so hard!

  97. L. says:

    I’d love to Wii Fit through the winter and on rainy days! I also think my 3-year-old might even get into it. Then I can work off all those Eton mess calories… good lord that looks delicious.

  98. Dena says:

    My boyfriend and I are moving in together, and he’s going to miss his roommate’s Wii Fit – we’d love to have one of our own.

  99. Rachel says:

    I am going to get my Wii on like Donkey Kong! ;)

  100. Christa says:

    I’d love to use the Wii to add some variety to my workout. I’d want to try boxing!
    Beautiful photos today!

  101. Katherine says:

    I will succumb to my fiance’s obsession with putting furniture on wheels and rig out our coffee table with wheels so that it can be rolled out easily for Wii!

  102. eula says:

    Wii Fit sounds like a fun way to burn some calories! Sounds like a good idea to throw a Wii Fit party and have the guests compete with one another.

  103. Leanna says:

    We always have people over. A Wii Fit would be a great way to get the group active.

  104. Kristina says:

    I would love to use the Wii fit to add some fun to my cross-training regimen! I’d also use it as an excuse to invite people over to for fit game nights. :)

  105. Anna K. says:

    I would use the Wii to play some video games with friends.

  106. Brent says:

    I’ll work out with my fiancee getting ready for our wedding in August. It’d be fun to “goof off” and work out at the same time.

  107. Janet says:

    Will add it to my routine daily workout roster as a change of pace from high impact training. Those 53 year old metatarsals are starting to balk!

  108. Brian says:

    I work from hom and the wii Fit will be a great addition to my regular workout on my treadmill. I want to do the Rhythm Kung Fu

  109. Jared R. says:

    I am a teacher at a public K-12 school in a very low-income area. Due to the socioeconomic realities of the area, many of my students don’t have much healthy influence in their lives (minimal sports opportunities, horrendous cafeteria food, etc). I often try to reward my students will healthy incentives, whether it be a nutritional treat or an extra gym class period, but those are sometimes hard to negotiate and offer regularly.

    This Wii system would help my coworkers and I encourage our students to engage in healthy practices, while also providing an incentive that will ultimately improve the learning environment in my classroom.

    Thanks for the consideration!

  110. Katie @ goodLife {eats} says:

    My hubby and I have resolved to start exercising together regularly – we’ve been working out in the mornings before he goes to work at least 3 days a week for the past 4 months. It would be great to have some fun, new work outs to do. We are getting a little bored with our current programs. :) Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  111. Sean P. says:

    With friends and lots of alcohol after Rx. school exams are over :)

  112. Thai Massage Boulder says:

    I will use the Wii to learn some sweet Kung Fu skills.

  113. Lindsay says:

    I would love to win this! Since my husband and I already work out from home (hello, OnDemand fitness!), the fit sounds like a whole lot more fun than cheesy workout videos. :)

  114. Jill says:

    Lovely photos, as always…….

    We would Wii together…and I would try to not pee my pants! Looks like fun.

    I hope Kaweah picks the winner!

    Good luck to all……

  115. Ashley says:

    Oh my dear. That Eton Mess looks incredible. I should have included that in my meringue class!
    My desire for a Wii fit would be to not let this pregnancy turn me into a Flabby Mess.
    And can I just say, your Mii is just perfect!

  116. claire says:

    ooh! I want to enter! But I can’t because I am in the UK. Hope whoever wins has a fab time with their Wii Fit. Great Giveaway.

  117. Tashi says:

    I would Wii my butt off! Or, at least, I’d try. I’d love to have something to motivate me to work out that is interesting and fun.

  118. Tina says:

    I would get my Wii on to exercise with my kids.

  119. Laura B. says:

    i’m currently in the process of moving from a house out in the country to an apartment in the city. for my exercise, i usually go running or biking. now i’m going to have to find a new way to stay active. wii fit plus would be perfect!

  120. Amelia Lui says:

    I’m a full-time college student with a part-time job and a practically full-time internship. Needless to say I barely have enough time for sleep let alone exercising. Whenever I do have enough energy to go for a jog, the weather doesn’t feel like cooperating. This would be an awesome and convenient way to get my exercise!

  121. Brooke says:

    Wii fit plus! Woo!
    All our money is going to our dog costs who seems to continually be sick or have some kind of ailment (which reminds me I need to call the vet again)… a wii fit would a great alternative to the gym I can’t afford!

  122. Christine says:

    i am 35 wks weeks pregnant so after the baby, i will definitely need to find a way to get fit again. my bf has promised to buy me the wii fit for months now to help me stay/get in shape but we had some money trouble so…

  123. Maggi says:

    Oh, I will TOTALLY be using this to slowly rehab myself back into running form after the surgery I am about to have. In addition, it will finally get me to wrestle the Wii away from the DH and kiddo!

  124. Monique says:

    Wii with the grandkids, Wii to keep fit.

  125. ally says:

    i would get the wiii on with my husband!! working out at home together would be fun!

  126. Kendra @ My First Kitchen says:

    How will I get my Wii on? Well, the how is tricky since I have a five month old baby. But the why is obvious… because I have a five month old baby. I HOPE I WIN!!!

  127. cd_mcg says:

    i used to workout at the gym until i hurt my back last year and was no longer able to workout, so i cancelled my gym membership. now my doctor has said it’s okay to start working out again, so the wii fit will be a great way to ease back into working out! thanks for doing the giveaway!

  128. Julia says:

    Play Rhythm Kung Fun over and over and over again. :)

  129. Anne B. says:

    I would love to do the Wii yoga everyday!

  130. Christine says:


    With the Wii Fit on.. I will not have any more excuses but to get fit and burn off all my fats ( after all the eating and experimenting in the kitchen)

    I think it’s the only way to go since the gym is too far away ! And my excuses are building up ! Heehee

    I hope to win this wii….Weewee = ) Thanks for your giveaway =)

  131. Whitney says:

    I have never tried a Wii but I am sure I will love it! Great cross training for my marathon training :)

  132. Denise says:

    I will get my Wii Fit on by doing the boxing as well as the yoga. My sister has incorporated the Wii Fit into her running program and LOVES how fit she is getting – while having fun!!!

  133. JulieD says:

    I would love to get my Wii on by creating a daily workout routine with it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  134. Jayme says:

    Would love to get active with my kids when the weather keeps us inside (which is often, here in the NW!)

  135. heather says:

    I’m a huge yoga fan, and I think the Wii could teach me some new tricks. My fiancee is a sports fanatic in general, and would certainly get a kick out of any sport. What a great giveaway and a great messy dessert!!



  136. Anna says:

    I’d get my other grad student nerd-friends to come over and have a wii party…complete with chocolate chip cookies.

  137. kristen says:

    i would be motivated to get up earlier to use it!!

  138. Jessica says:

    I want to do Wii yoga and hula hooping. I live in a house with 3 other people so I imagine we’d have some contests!

  139. Amy P. says:

    I would throw a party so my friends and I could be terribley uncoordinated together!

  140. Megan says:

    Nothing would be more perfect to christen our family room in our new house than a Wii/Wii Fit! I’d say it would make for the best housewarming party ever. :)

  141. Laura says:

    i just moved to a new apartment and i no longer have a roommate – or a wii fit to use. :( i’d love one of my own to use when i can’t get myself to go to the gym!

  142. Krista says:

    Ohh, you are so fun! :-) Those stars are so delightful. :-) Hmmm, what would I do with a Wii? I’d get back in shape after my car accident, and have jolly nights with my friends laughing and working out to great music. :-)

  143. Stephanie says:

    I would love to get my Wii on with the Wii yoga and hula hooping. They hula hooping would be SO fun to do with all four of my sisters-in-law!

  144. JulieE says:

    I’d get my Wii on with my houseful of kiddos. BTW I love that this recipe includes “shake the hell out of the bowl”. Puts a smile on my face.

  145. Alexandra says:

    Wii fit? I would share it with my little brother, sister, and mom and finally get back to having awesome family together-time.

  146. Ginny says:

    Awesome! I love the Wii! Yoga is a must and apparently, I can be on a segway? hehe! :)

  147. Linda says:

    Love the Wii! Love the strawberry recipe too!

  148. Eileen says:

    A wii would be so much fun, I would love to try the yoga and all the games my friends talk about. Sounds really cool, just too expensive to actually buy the system myself.
    The eton mess looks deelicious!

  149. Sandy a la Mode says:

    What a FABULOUS giveaway this is!!! I will get my Wii on when it’s rainy or when there are thunderstorms/tornadoes outside, b/c I never like leaving the house when the weather is like that!!

  150. Melanie T says:

    Oh my gosh! I would totally use that for gym class! I homeschool my four kids, and this would be a blast, especially in our Wisconsin winters! Thanks:)

  151. Kelly says:

    Would love a wii and wii fit for early morning workouts (at home!) before my son wakes up : )

    love the strawberry recipe–been scouring the internet for what to do with all mine!!

  152. Joanne says:

    I would finally be able to show the nephews that I am the coolest aunt. The only thing holding me back was that I had no Wii – to their utmost disgust every time that they come for a beach vacation. Beach / fresh air / sunshine vs Wii. Why would I expect any different? I was a kid – I remember that technology stuff was way more cool that nature.

  153. Oanh S. says:

    I would definitely use my Wii when my two year old is napping. Perfect use of time!

  154. Debbie says:

    I’d get my Wii on by adding to my current workout – swimming 3 times a week and Total Gym 3 times a week. With Wii, instead of taking Saturday off, I’d have a full week workout and lots of fun too!

  155. kyra says:

    I would love to win the WII !!! At my house, my hubby has an xbox 360, and there is NO girl games!!!! I’ve been begging and begging for a WII!

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  156. Peg says:

    I am recovering from a back and knee injury, so would use the Wii to help with therapy, as well as lose weight gained because I could not move! I am unable to walk great distances yet, but I think I could do this! Due to the injury, money is tight in this household, so money has to be used for vital things, such as a roof over our heads, food and clothing. Also, my 11 year old son is on medication that causes him to pack on pounds. We have him in sports to counteract that, but it is not enough – this would be great for him, as he could do it daily, come rain, snow or shine!

  157. Binsy says:

    What great giveaway! I would use the wii to get toned up.

  158. TheKitchenWitch says:

    I’m with Manisha–let’s do a Wii party again because I had to miss it! (wah) I love the Wii version of Kaweah!

  159. Twila Moon says:

    I suspect I’ll get my wii on with my husband…in my living room…before eating ice cream and brownies :)

  160. Amy says:

    I’d love to kick my husbands but in a virtual sport since he always wins in real life games!! lol!!

  161. Cindi says:

    Wii fitness would be great to do with my two girls. A fun way to get the kids exercising, while they think they are playing video games.

  162. Randi says:

    good god, your meringues are beautiful. as is wii fit. mmmmm wii fit yoga and meringues. sign me up :)

  163. Anna says:

    After a long day at work I have no motivation to leave the house and I’m not a morning person so i can’t squeeze in a workout before work. This would be great because I could just work out at home and it looks much more fun then just a workout video. Not paying several hundred bucks for it would also be great :D

  164. Mo Arbach says:

    Oh, I got feeling I’d be getting my wii fit on With about 20 people. Grin it’s apartment setting an there are lots of displaced unemployed workers here. I could use the excerise grin 20lbs to spare. Hehe, It come in handy, if I have to go back to climbin ladders all day and unloading trucks!

  165. Susie D. says:

    I’d get my Wii fit on with my daughter. She loves to work out with mom! Great giveaway, thank you!

  166. Kathy O. says:

    I would use whenever I had spare time and to have fun with my daughter … nothing better than playing a “game” together, especially one that is as much fun as the Wii :)

  167. Heidi says:

    I’ll get my Wii on with my hubby and almost 3 year old little boy! How exciting would that be :D I’d love to try to Yoga :) Oh, and I have a US address even though my IP address says I’m in Canada right now :D

  168. Jessica F says:

    10 (or 14 depending on he day of the week) hour shifts at my place of employment make it very difficult to get to the gym and work out- Wii Fit will help me get my girlish figure back!

  169. Liz says:

    I’d get my Wii on in our new den to help lose weight put on after a major disappointment! Then I would be able to bike and hike more and more :) Plus we both NEED to do yoga, and the classes aren’t convenient. You rock!

  170. Christina says:

    I would totally use it at home everyday to get my daily workout! Sounds like so much fun!

  171. Dee says:

    I’d take advantage of all the Wii Fit exercises. Must get in shape and improve my balance!

  172. jacquie says:

    with working 2 different jobs and 1 w/ varying hours plus trying to get the dogs walked i have a hard time getting to the gym. also there is plenty of “stress” that needs an outlet. i have been wanting to try Yoga and looking for some upper body and core building exercizes to help maintain muscle strength as more moons are passing. Wii Fit would be the perfect solution for me.

  173. Cara D. says:

    I’ve had my eye on a Wii & Wii Fit for a long time! I regularly have foster dogs & other animals in & out of the house & many times the activity makes it difficult to get out of the house for as much exercise outdoors as I’d like (sometimes these dogs can’t be left alone in their first days here, etc) so I’d love to have a Wii Fit so I could help create & maintain some workout space & interesting workouts in my own home!!

  174. Lee says:

    I’d use it to entertain and hopefully motivate myself and the non-poker players at our regular poker games. Those of us who don’t play poker usually wind up sitting around talking and munching!

  175. Elizabeth B. says:

    I’m going to drive my downstairs neighbor crazy by using the Wii Fit every day! On the serious side, being unemployed, I love to find exercise and entertainment alternatives that don’t break my budget.

  176. Florence says:

    I have tried the wii once. I never had soo much fun in my life as that day. The only way I can get the WII is by winning one due to a fix income. It will mk me loose wieght and bring me out of depression. I don’t get to go out much,and I could see me really being happy with the Wii. It gave me so much motavation,and it made me feel so young,since I’am a senior Cititzen………

  177. Haley says:

    It looks like we’re all short on time! This Wii would be a perfect replacement for my boyfriend’s evening-o-tv!

  178. heather says:

    that is, indeed, the best kinda mess i’ve ever seen!

    as for fitting in wii fit…invite friends over and let the challenges begin! :o)

    thanks, jen!

  179. Megan says:

    I will use the Wii Fit with my cute little cousins – ages 5 and 7…they will love it!

  180. Meg says:

    Yum! Strawberries and CA poppies. I loved our visits to Palmdale in early Spring!! I also really love those flowers that smell like grape jelly.

    Onto the question at hand: I was SO bummed when I wasn’t able to make it to the Dec party! AND!!! We’re buying a house this month. Right now, our apartment is next door to the gym where I’ve been doing group fitness classes. Our new house…not so close. I won’t be able to walk over anytime and take a class. I’ll use my Wii and WiiFit to keep my fitness routine going. Plus, with the house, I’ll actually have ROOM to set it up. We just didn’t have room for the Wii in our apartment. The timing of this giveaway is perfect, as far as I’m concerned!! :) Thanks, Jen!

  181. Janet says:

    ALWAYS enjoy your blog, and this is a great give-away. Thank you!

    I need a Wii fit more than I care to admit to you, (or to myself!) Everytime my husband and I begin to play our Wii, it makes me laugh so hard I have to pee, which always delays our games!

    Any way… More info than you asked for, I know. But I would LOVE to try the Wii fit yoga!

    Best to you always!

  182. DianaWR says:

    I would do wii fit with my husband so we could spend more time together while getting it!

  183. Stefanie says:

    It will let me exercise when it’s too dark or cold out. Thanks!

  184. April in CT says:

    I would definitely get my Wii on with my hubby! This past year we’ve started exercising and eating better (yay for eating REAL food!) and this would be an awesome way to work out together since we do different routines right now. Awesome give away and scrumptious recipe!

  185. Kat says:

    I would get my Wii on by being able to work out at home and on my schedule, not the schedule of the gym on campus! And have some friends over to get their Wii on too!

  186. Amy says:

    Wow! Great giveaway! Thanks!

    So… the thing about Wii that I like, is that I can finally have someone telling me in my living room whether or not my poses for various exercises are right (particularly yoga… I never know if I’m doing stuff right or not). So, I’d definitely be getting my wii on with the yoga. Because I’m too embarrassed and cheap to go to yoga classes!

  187. Anjanette says:

    I would replace some of my treadmill work with the Wii. I’m getting married in 3.5 months and getting on the treadmill is so boring anymore. I have been coveting the Wii for such a long time. Hoping it will help motivate me. However, I’m currently unemployed/freelancing so can’t really justify the expense. But if not this giveaway, then soon! Because I am serious about fitness this year….beyond the wedding!

  188. Crystl C says:

    I’ll be getting my wii on with yoga – and then inviting friends over for competitions!

  189. caitlin says:

    I will wii ski! and hoola hoop!

  190. Jenn says:

    I’d get my fit on with my son.

  191. Alessa says:

    I will wii all day when its too rainy to go outside and play. (Too much Dr. Seuss on the brain).

  192. Helen says:

    I would get my Wii on all by myself.

  193. Melanie says:

    I would looooove a Wii because as a single working parent, I don’t wanna drag my 6yo kid from afterschool back inside to a gym so she can have care while I exercise. A Wii would allow both of us to get fit at home, or if she wants, to be outside playing with friends while I get my fit on inside. Also, as a person with asthma, it’s just nice to have an option other than the costly gym (membership plus childcare!) when the weather isn’t so nice.


  194. audra says:

    I would try yoga in the comfort and privacy of my own home! (i am ridiculously shy when it comes to any kind of activity or sport– no coordination). What a coincidence that you’re giving one away! We bought a Wii for my dad for Christmas, but no games, other than what came with it. Have been meaning to get Wii Fit Plus, but now Costco doesn’t carry it!!! =( thanks for the contest!

  195. Valerie says:

    Your meringues look perfect! I’ve been wanting a Wii ever since they came out, and for some reason Santa hasn’t given me one. I would LOVE to use it to do yoga, and the Rhythm Kung Fu looks fun too!

  196. Spencer says:

    I have a nine month old daughter. My wife looks fantastic and somehow I’m still out of shape. I write from home so I’ll be (hopefully) getting my Wii Fit on then.

  197. Jill says:

    As a single working mommy it’s very tough to get into the gym some days (and then pay for the gym daycare, and then the guilt of him being at yet ANOTHER daycare) a Wii Fit would be a great way of staying in shape without having to sacrifice my pocketbook or time with my child :)


  198. Alice says:

    My 5-year old daughter and I will both get our Wiis on! Sometimes it’s hard to get enough physical activity with allergies and pollen in full swing outside (not to mention the smothering hot weather and mosquito village in the summertime). It would be great to have a fun physical activity inside.

  199. RT says:

    I would play ninjabread man all day

  200. Kathy says:

    I am excited about this!! We love friendly competition at my house and I have heard many, many positive things about the Wii Fit Plus. Exercise = good sleep = energy. By the way, I got a big kick out of your Kaweah Mii. :-)

  201. Erica Best says:

    i want to wii to help me lose weight so i would love to use my wii for weight lost and fun with my friends and family

  202. C McAllister says:

    I absolutely love your blog and photography! it is truly inspiring!

    How will I get my Wii on? As a full time student with a full time job it would be the perfect excuse to get away from the routine of life and add some healthy fun to my day! I would love to end my day with some Wii fit Yoga!

  203. kim says:

    love the flower pics! I will have a girls only wii party, no boys to steal the remote =D

  204. Flora says:

    It seems like a really fun way to get some exercise into my day as well as a great tool for family fun time with the kids. Thanks for such a great giveaway.

  205. Donna says:

    After working 9 hour days in an extremely busy Oncology office, I need some serious Yoga to unwind. Wiiooo! Bring it on!

  206. Kat Viray says:

    Those flowers make me want to run through them singing “The Sound of Music” ;)…

    So, how will I get my Wii on? I’m currently training to run in the Disneyland Marathon that takes place in Anaheim, Ca on September. Since I’m told that I have to take a break every few days from running to rest my certain muscles and joints, I’ll use those off days to do some yoga or pilates on the Wii. The little pockets of fat that I have won’t stand a chance! I’ll even throw a Wii workout with some of my fellow marathoners. =D

  207. orrobbins says:

    The meringues are beautiful! Here in humid Louisiana they would never last. We would love a Wii for our family, and it would be great on girls’ night! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  208. lori says:

    wow….what a great giveaway. i think i’d have to have a plan, because i definitely need more exercise in my life. i’d start with yoga, and when my flexibility returns, i’d move up to more active games. it’d be so great….

  209. Knitopia says:

    I would probably look like a fool (I’ve never used one before), but it would be OK, because I bet it would be fun!

  210. Michelle says:

    I’d love to have the chance to get my whole family into this, esp. when we’re with my parents, sisters & their families. So fun!

  211. Wonderful says:

    I would love to win a Wii Fit Plus, especially because I just took my first yoga class last weekend. If I could do yoga at home, I’d save a lot of time, money, and gas! I’d love to win!

  212. Lisa says:

    I would use the Wii fit to burn off that gorgeous Eton Mess! ( :

  213. Laura says:

    I would use the Wii with husband so that we could get fit together.

  214. Emily says:

    I would definitely use a Wii fit for yoga. My balance stinks! You’re blog is great. I have had a blast experimenting with new Asian recipes. Thanks!

  215. anita says:

    i love yoga, so i would use the wii after work for that!

  216. Tawnia says:

    Oh–Yoga!! Would love to get some Wii on!

  217. Frances says:

    I just graduated and moved out of an apartment complex so now I have no more gym! I would definitely use the wii to replace it and use it for an hour every morning! And by the way I love the different Asian recipes on your blog- I can recognize the dishes from when I was a kid but just never had the recipe or guts to try to make them- now I can!

  218. Tammy says:

    I’m a workaholic, but I would use the Wii late at night and early in the morning!

  219. Maria says:

    We would invite the neighborhood kids and adults over for some fun! Great giveaway…and I could look at your photos all day long. Love your work.

  220. irene says:

    wii between studying, wish i had time to be more active

  221. amy says:

    I would use the Wii fit up in the attic – a large, beautiful, sunny, empty space that I have done nothing with. We just moved here a couple of months ago and I’ve left it empty as a reminder of life’s potential… and because I have little inspiration :-)

    Love the Eton Mess. It’s on my recipe list for this weekend – and strawberries are so cheap right now!

  222. Jenny says:

    Oh my goodness, I must try that eton mess. I guess its just a slightly different version of a pavlova, which is my absolute favorite!

    I think I would try to find a fun dancing game for the wii fit, I love my dance dance revolution on the xbox!

  223. Ruthie says:

    My competitive nature will make me do the obstacle course again and AGAIN till I beat my cheating friend’s high score!

  224. Stacey says:

    I would get my Wii on with some Wii Tennis….and Bowling…..and Yoga….oh heck, I’d Wii it all!! I refuse to live my life depriving myself of yummy food so exercise is key for being able to live that way!

  225. Dani says:

    I use the Wii all the time, but my roommate is moving out next month, and bringing her wii with her. Please help alleviate my withdrawal!

  226. Livia says:

    I haven’t owned a gaming system since my family’s Atari 2600. But I have friends with a Wii, and I’ve heard good things about it from the other people at Weight Watchers. I love yoga and any kind of dancing. Pretty much, I love any exercise I can do barefoot.

    That’s a surprisingly tidy mess you have there. :)

    And thank you for all of the sunny flowers.

  227. Diana says:

    I havent used a wii before :((… would love to own one.. :))

  228. susitravl says:

    Beautiful photos! I have a list of Wii games that I want, should I ever get a Wii, but I would like to start with Yoga and go from there.

  229. Jessica T. says:

    I’ll get my Wii on by, well, inviting everyone over and having a Wii and Waffle Night!

  230. Amy says:

    Giveaways are the best way to end a Monday. Thank you Jen! I would use the Wii Fit with friends and my boyfriend, and I can guarantee that I will look ridiculous “wii-ing” all over the place! I’ve never done any Wii fit stuff before, but it sounds like a lot of fun (and a nice reprieve from the daily grind at the gym). :)

  231. Julia says:

    I would get my Wii on with my mom who has been lamenting that she doesn’t get enough exercise.

  232. Daniel W says:

    I would love to use the Wii and Wii fit with my family and friends. It would be awesome!

  233. julo says:

    I would get my Wii on with my husband and, apparently, my puppy! hehe. Looks like fun. :)

  234. Kath says:

    I’m always looking for new and exciting ways to get fit since the same old routine gets boring real quick. At the moment, I have actually been catching up on all my xbox games while on an exercising bike. It definitely makes the time past by and makes exercising a bit more fun. I’m hoping with a wii I will be able to exercise in a fun but more convenient way. In other words, I am unable to see the television as well on the bike and it makes it difficult with a FPS game :p

    Good luck to everyone and thanks for setting this up. I’ve been saving a bunch of recipes but I’m looking forward to making the breakfast pizza and all the sushi recipes you have posted (if I ever get the nerves to make them) :)

  235. michelle says:

    i would have a mario party…party with my wii (and hopefully sneak in some healthier gaming too)

  236. Karen says:

    I would use it to add variety to my exercise routine. I already exercise to workout videos/dvds daily, and it would be fun to add a new wrinkle to my routine. Thanks!

    ps I happen to have 4 egg whites languising in the freezer, this looks like the perfect use for them!

  237. Lori says:

    This is so on my list of things I want to own!

    I would love to do this with my family in the evening after dinner. Family fitness time. Get a workout and have fun together! Yeah baby!

  238. Mercè says:

    I would use the Wii fit to practice yoga at home!! Specially now, that I’m really stressed finishing up writing my dissertation!
    What a lovely meringues!!

  239. Nicole says:

    What a great opportunity! I am a single mother and live with my 13 year old Son. A Wii would be a great addition to our family! We would use it for game night and would help with our fitness as we live in the heart of Central Cali and it gets HOT in the summer! Sometimes too hot to even head outside!

  240. Manggy says:

    It’d be really easy to fit some fit in with the Wii Fit – it makes burning calories so fun, I wouldn’t have to drag myself out of my seat! (Of course, there’s that aspect of beating my own record ;) I’ll be needing it especially with a job that takes up a lot of time!
    That is perhaps the most beautiful pics of eton mess I’ve seen. David Loftus managed an okay one, but most of the mess was below the rim of the glass, hehe :)

  241. Cassidy says:

    That dessert doesn’t look like a mess at all! It looks delish…

    Speaking of which, I’d need the Wii Fit to help me burn all the calories I consume after being inspired by your blog posts! Nah, really, I’d like it to do some muscle toning so I can look better in my fishnets when I play roller derby :)

    Thanks so much, you (and your blog) are awesome!

  242. Veggie Belly says:

    I’d love to wii together with my husband. What a great giveaway! Thanks!

  243. Sara says:

    Ummm, that dessert looks AMAZING. Seriously. I want it in my mouth. Right now. How could that combination of things be bad??? Will try and will report back as soon as I see some better looking strawberries (all the ones around here are still miserably pale).

    I would use the Wii as motivation to move my fat butt after overeating, duh! I love, in particular, the yoga games and the things that help with alignment and balance.

  244. Katherine says:

    after burying myself in law textbooks all day, i would use the wii to get some pent up aggression out, especially with wii boxing!

  245. robyn says:

    I’d give it to my daughter. Her husband just lost his job and his mother is dying. Not making that up. They could use a bit of joy.

    Your dessert mess looks so good, I’m stealing your recipe!

  246. Bug says:

    I (and my household) will get my (our) wii fit on every day so that I can continue to make and devour all the delicious meals and treats that I make for my family from the great recipes on your blog, Jen! I gotta stay in shape to prove to people that Butter is THE most important ingredient in every meal!

  247. Patricia says:

    I will get my Wii on with my 5 year old daughter! Go Wii fit!

  248. Banana says:

    that dessert looks great!

    I could definitely use the Wii fit right now! I recently started a new non profit job where I work long hours and have less money for gym membership. I’m trying to get into workout DVDs but I would love something a little more fun!

  249. Cathy/ShowFoodChef says:

    This little piggy would go Wii Wii Wii all the way to….15lbs less. Of course, only after I eat my fill of strawberries, meringue and cream :D Love you, Love your blog!

  250. Jeanne says:

    I will play it with my five grandsons and we will all get going with it, not to mention that it will be a nice lure for their other Wii games at my house.

  251. Julie says:

    Wow, I’ve been dying to get that wii fit plus. I’ve been trying to get off my rear a little, and I’m definitely not going to the gym, so this would do the trick :)

  252. Kaila says:

    wow, I didn’t know that Wii had Fit Plus. So I looked it up and was surprised to see variety of different exercises it contained. Looks like I would use the Balance Games more than the others. I love snowboarding, not that I’m good at it or anything, so I think the Balance Game will help prepare me for the winter. :)
    Also, having Wii would force my husband to get a big screen TV. hehehehe

  253. shelley says:

    i would wii to teach my little monkeys that tv is not just for watching

  254. Christy says:

    I could really really use this. My hubby and I are both really in the mindset to start exercising but don’t like to do much. The Wii Fit would really help us with our weightloss goal.

  255. Frances says:

    Seriously! I would love to get my Wii on and have a Wii Fit Plus Party – that sounds awsome! This would be so great for me; I live rurally so this would be a great way to cut back on travel time to the gym and just compliment my existing exercise routine. Plus, I’ve just got a place in the Kielder Marathon so I really need all the help I can get! Thank you for the inspiration!

  256. Jane L says:

    I would turn it on everyday around 6:00 PM, to unwind from the day. Yoga sounds fun, plus it seems a good way to get the others in the family to exercise more

  257. Erin from Long Island says:

    I would love to get my Wii on at home! I might even share with my sister

  258. Emily says:

    I’d love to play Wii Fit with my mom, who’s definitely been eying both the gaming system and the game for a while now. It’d also be super fun to play with my siblings. :) Basically, I’d just spend time with my family, playing with it. I’ve always had fun when I played on my friends’ Wiis, so I’m sure my family would like it, too.

    By the way, I looove Eton messes~ <3 Yours looks so delicious!!

  259. Laura says:

    I would love to have a Wii at home! It would give me something to do while my S.O. is lost to the X-Box…

  260. Carly says:

    I’m going to medical school next year, which means I will not have much free time. Having the Wii at home would let me sneak in a workout so that maybe I can actually practice the healthy lifestyle I’ll be learning about! :)

  261. Pam says:

    I’ve been trying to justify purchasing one for a year now (we have a playstation for the kids). This would be for mom to use on those days when I can’t get out on the bike or am bored with the treadmill. I would absolutely love it, the yoga sounds fun :)

  262. Kim says:

    We can’t afford a gym membership right now and a Wii would be fantastic solution!

  263. Jack says:

    I have every console ever made but I’ve never purchased one myself.
    I thought they would bring me happiness. But they have only lead to isolation and a quiet feeling of desperation.
    Hopefully the Wii fit will allow me to A. become more physically active and hence enhance my mood, and B.
    encourage me to make a friend to come over and play with me.

  264. Chef Sheree says:

    With my daughters. We’ve started exercising together.

  265. Yvonne says:

    It takes me 2 hours to get to work and 2 hours back after work, i hardly have the time to sqeeze in to go drive to the gym, i would def. enjoy a good yoga session or a good work out to vent off the steam from a hard days work. Not to mention the grumpy people from the public transportation. CRY… good luck all!

  266. alst says:

    I’ll get my wii on all the time… might share with my black lab porter too… he loves yoga! ;-)

  267. MegsP says:

    The wii yoga would be fantastic!

  268. Kieran says:

    I think that it would be a great study break for my friends and I

  269. peggyj says:

    Actually, my daughter recently said I should look into getting a Wii fit. We have just finished a horrible LONG winter, so I’ve got the toned muscles of a slug. Since I’m in my 50’s, other exercise routines look a bit extreme to me, but the Wii looks like a lot of fun. And I’m sure my daughter would want to use it, as well!
    Happy Spring, everyone!!

  270. Slim_YIm says:

    Wii would like to be FIT! I would defiantely throw a wii fit party and take lots of pictures and post them! I’m a beginner in baking and cooking and have gained ten pounds in my gut!!!!!!!

  271. Patricia Scarpin says:

    Your meringues are beautiful, perfect – I’m amazed by your piping skills, Jen!

  272. Eileen says:

    I plan to use Wii fit to get me outside to actually do the full set of monkey bars that my three boys get across with no problem! A little indoor – outdoor symmetry thanks to Wii!

  273. nico says:

    Since we got our baby we are not able to got to the gym anymore, no time and also cutting expenses. With the fit we could work put at home while we have some fun at the same time, thanks.

  274. Shannon says:

    i would get my wii fit on at night, when I’m used to sitting on the couch with my laptop… why not turn on the wii instead and work on my balance or kung fu :)

  275. jt says:

    i’ve always wanted to try yoga and wii yoga would be perfect since yoga classes are super expensive

  276. Marijoe says:

    OMG!!! I would love to have a Wii…I’m a Microsoftee wife so it have been very polemic the Wii vs Xbox thing :0
    If I get this Wii I would be able to exercise daily after 10+ hour on my feets, I am a pastry chef. And I would help my knees to heel after a silly ski lift accident that “smashed” both of them this season…probabilistically speaking, I going to win ;)

  277. Amy Q. says:

    I think I would bring it to work, for lunchtime– to reduce stress in our office! (on days when it’s not nice enough to get outside- we have a lot of those in the spring here)

  278. spike says:

    Might do a little wii fit session while waiting for treats to bake in the oven.

  279. Beth says:

    I would get my Wii on with all of my kids since I just can’t seem to carve time out of the day to get to the gym between way too many trips to schools, doctors appointments and baby naps.

  280. Amanda says:

    My husband and I would love to be able to do Wii Fit together. Our gym membership is becoming quite expensive, so we have been debating dropping it recently, so if we got a Wii, we would be able to without a doubt!

  281. kay says:

    I’ll get my Wii on early in the morning, instead of sitting on my butt with the laptop in my lap reading newspapers before I shower and go to work!

  282. Erin P. says:

    I would train my dog, Simba to do with with me. Just for pure entertainment, I’ll get a kick out of it and he’ll get the treats.

  283. Kate says:

    I’m unemployed and my kiddo is off to a prep school in CT in a few months. I’m going to have more time than I can make excuses for to fill with exercise! It’ll be better than moping about in a big empty house… and if I fill the void with a dog, I can get the pup into the act, too!

  284. Courtney Barr - The Southern Princess says:

    OMG! The yoga alone on the Wii Fit would be fantastic but I have heard the balance trials are so worth it as well! It would definitely be a good workout that would be easy access on those days where Bama gets around 100 degrees… yeah heat stroke does happen ;o)

  285. Jessica says:

    I am a teacher so I am about to have a lot of time of to Wii it up!

  286. Jennifer says:

    I would do yoga on the Wii Fit! I hear awesome things about it!

  287. kristina says:

    The Wii Fit will help balance my daily dessert intakes. :)

  288. Samantha says:

    Hey, that is a big smooshed up pavlova. Pavlova is aways a crowd pleaser! I have actuallyserved it along side a chocolate dessert and had the pavlova disappear while there was chocolate left over.
    My big german shepherd likes to “exercise” with me in my tiny living room. I will use the wii fit to get funny video of my dog exercising with me to send to AFV in my quest to win their $10k prize!

  289. Madhavi says:

    I will get the Wii on with my husband … should make getting fit a lot more fun!

  290. Deb in Indiana says:

    In Indiana, it is hot and humid in the summer and cold and wet in the winter — Wii sounds like great exercise year round.

  291. Brooke says:

    I would love to have a Wii Fit… it would be so nice to have at home to use whenever I have time!!!! And the party looked fun too!

  292. Lily says:

    I was amazed at how the original Wii Fit was so great at making me break a sweat–without me having to leave the house. I can’t wait to try out the Wii Fit Plus! My fiance and I are getting married next summer and that’s plenty of incentive to try to get into shape!

  293. sophie says:

    Hello, I love your blog and the gorgeous pics! I would love to have a Wii and Wii Fit. I would use it to lose the extra baby weight I’ve been hanging on to since my first was born almost 3 months ago!

  294. Salena says:

    I would love a Wii fit. I’ve never tried it but it looks so fun! I tend to get stuck in a routine so it would be great to shake things up a bit.

  295. Tani says:

    How would I get my Wii on? With my boys! Would love to have a game night with the little men in my life – bowling, tennis, etc….I think we would have a blast!!!

    And also the yoga for me! LOL

    Thanks for the opportunity!!


  296. stephanieee says:

    I’ve been working out 6 days/week @ home to lose my baby weight (uh.. my baby is 2!!!).. I know a Wii Fit would make it so much more fun without having to pay for a gym membership!

  297. Mikka says:

    I’m gonna get my Wii on by playing doubles tennis with my husband, maybe lose this law school weight.

  298. Angela Napolitano says:

    I’ve been wanting a Wii with Wii fit! It looks like so much fun. A great way to exercise! Love your photos!

  299. Christy says:

    I go to the gym on a regular basis. But when I or the kids are sick (with three kids, it’s likely at least 2 or3 times a month!) and we can’t get there then it would be great to be able to do the Wii Fit! My friends all rave about it, but unfortunately I haven’t gotten the chance to try it at all! I also think the kids would love to do it and they won’t even know it’s exercise!

  300. caitlin says:

    I just finished up an aerobics class at my school and now I have more free time. I would definitely use a wii fit during the time I used to have aerobics.

  301. Anne says:

    I’m going to Wii it up after work and before dinner. A desk job is better hours, but not so good when you sit at a desk most of the day.

  302. elra says:

    I have anxiety problem, I am sure Wii can help me, because I am going to have fun with Wii fit.

  303. Shannon says:

    I will use it with all The free time I’m going to have after I graduate with my masters in may. Yahoo!

  304. Emily R says:

    I would use the Wii to motivate my lazy butt to get active and lose the weight I need to.

  305. Rose in Ohio says:

    I will spend precious time at home getting fit with my off-to-college-soon-daughter who is always trying to get me to go to the gym with her. She agrees to this compromise!

  306. Kelly Cline says:

    First… I’ll take a big ole bowl of that mess and probably go back for seconds. Which would make a Wii Fit a must to work off all those delicious calories.
    Secondly… summer is coming and my only niece will be spending time at my place, she is like a daughter/sister/niece to me… her Mother has had nothing to do with her for the last 15 years, and her father (my Brother) works an insane schedule of a mix of days and nights so his time with her is unfortunately limited. She has been raised by my Mother for the last 15 years and I take her to spend time with me for Spring Break and in the Summer. One of the things she really looks forward to is coming up to spend time with me, because I try to focus on positive, good clean fun with her.
    One of the things that we love to do is Play Dance Dance Revolution… I don’t know if she just likes to play it to see her big fat butted Aunty jumping around like a loon or if it just because she just simply likes to play it. All I know is that I love those times spent with her and hearing her laugh, cut loose and really be a kid. They are precious moments for the both of us.
    I’d love a Wii Fit for the fun, for the family and for the fit of it :)

  307. Kelsey Nolen says:

    I’d get my fit on with my sister and my husband on game night instead of just sitting around a table with a board game!!

  308. Nabeela says:

    I would totally use the wii fit to start my day right with a nice kick-ass session of strength training.

  309. kris weber says:

    If I win the Wii with the Wii fit plus, I wouldn’t have to go over to my sister house, and play Wii Tennis with my 12 yr old nephew, I could actually play the Wii Fit.

  310. Terri/Love & Confections says:

    I would use it to help my workout routine. I am trying to eat healthier, but need the exercise as well. Wii Fit is a great start and something I can do everyday.

    p.s. Wii kayak is the funniest thing ever! I played it once on my cousins’ Wii. It’s hilarious to watch people row.

  311. Abby says:

    That’s the prettiest “mess” I’ve ever seen!

    My husband and I have been toying with the idea of getting a Wii fit. Like you I think it would be huge fun for parties! And it’s always great to be ACTIVE together! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  312. Jodi says:

    I would get my Wii on with my hubby, instead of him playing stupid zombie games on his computer ;-)

  313. Suhartini Perkins says:

    Just had a beautiful baby girl 9 months ago. So, I would love to do exercise without leaving my house and my daughter would love the interaction too : ) Thanks for sharing!

  314. Sharon says:

    I love the mini Kaweah! Almost as adorable as the real one! I would totally Wii it up during my Friday night ladies night, where a group of lovely graduate student ladies come together to try and decompress from the madness of graduate student life over a nice home-cooked meal and a few stolen hours away from the textbooks!

  315. Jennifer Ehmke says:

    I was looking for a unagi sushi recipe this evening and came across your Thanksgiving post. I am so glad I did! Um wii fun, I would use the wii fit to relax after a long day at the office. :)

  316. Brenda says:

    I have incredibly long and random work hours and I find it so hard to get to the gym. I think the Wii may be the answer to my fitness prayers…and then maybe I could stop paying for that gym membership?!

  317. Brenda S 'Okie in Colorado' says:

    This would be perfect for my husband. I can’t get him to exercise, not even walk around the neighborhood. He loves playing Wii with the Grandson’s. If we had this set, I believe this would get our exercise in and have lots of fun as well.
    Your food always looks so yummy. I’ve tried so many of your recipes and they always turn out perfection.

  318. Kristy says:

    Thanks for the giveaway contest! The Wii would be perfect for my mom, 73, and my dad, 79 and recovering from knee surgery, who need to get some exercise that’s not hard on their bodies!

  319. Anh says:

    I would Wii off to get back in shape from having my baby recently =)

  320. Payal says:

    I’d use the Wii to help me get close to my pre-pregnancy weight.

  321. Eve says:

    I would use it to help loose the pregnancy weight.

  322. Sharon says:

    I will Wii my way to top form so that I can really enjoy pulling in the net full of salmon, hiking in the hills for berries, and chasing down those elusive morels.

  323. Karla says:

    How are you gonna get your Wii on?

    Lose the graduate school 15 after finally finishing my PhD!!!

  324. jo says:

    Hmm … my other half says I lack exercise and am always on the computer. Maybe the Wii will get me in the mood to loose some of those kilos.

  325. Emily says:

    To unwind and relax after work! The Wii is so much fun, you have no idea you are working hard. Even tennis! I STILL get sore after playing that Wii game!

  326. Joann says:

    My friends are using it and love it. I’d love to try it. To combine fun, exercise and family time with the Wii could be life changing. I love my computer and believe i could be a great motivator.

  327. Lori says:

    I would love to have a Wii Fit in my family room to get my groove on. YOga here I come!

  328. Jenny says:

    I would use it to get back in shape. I still have baby weight and my son is almost six years old! Ha! Thanks for the giveaway.

  329. Kate says:

    I would totally bust out some yoga on that – and whatever else! Everyone I know with a Wii says the balance and yoga will whip your butt. That would be great.

    It would be even better if I could get my husband to do yoga. Awesome.

  330. Kath says:

    Looks totally yummy!!

    (don’t have a TV, so no worries about the giveaway) :-)

  331. Denise says:

    I would impress my daughters by working out and they would be so impressed! I would impress my granddaughter by working out and she would be so impressed! BUT, most of all, I would impress myself. :)

  332. Peggy says:

    With the grandkids! They love it and we could play (exercise) together inside.

  333. Scott E says:

    My mom has been talking about how’d she’d love to have this. It sounds like a great tool for exercising, especially when outside is too hot/cold/humid/dark etc. Thanks.

  334. Phoo-D says:

    I would use it to stretch my self out of a winter funk and into shape! Yoga, skiing, tennis, it all sounds like a lot of fun!

  335. KatieC says:

    I will get my Wii on with my husband, the darling Brad, who recently broke his femur in 5 places! We’ll use the Wii to aid his recovery, honing his balance and agility and strength so he can get back to doing dangerous things as quickly as possible!


  336. Rachel B says:

    At my house we’d get our Wiifit on during those yucky days when inclement weather keeps us inside!!

  337. Vicki says:

    Wii will exercise in the privacy of our own home.
    Wii will get to exercise even when it’s raining or snowing outside.
    Wii want to get fitter, healthier, more productive.

  338. Jessica V. says:

    I’m gonna do it up right! Since I live in the Pacific Northwest, this is the perfect gadget to help me get some exercise on the ever-present rainy days. I just might get online and have my friends and family from all over the country join me for some Wii fun! And I’m totally going to school my boyfriend in Yoga. ;)

  339. kerri says:

    My husband and I will get our wii on for a free date night!

  340. Drea says:

    I’ll use my Wii to take exercise breaks from blogging! My butt has taken on the shape of my desk chair, so it will be convenient to walk to my living room and try to sculpt it back into shape. Thanks for running this contest :).

  341. Nichole says:

    How will I fit some fit in with the Wii Fit Plus from Nintendo?

    Let me count the ways! 1) I would love a Wii Fit Plus because I missed the Wii Fit party you hosted in December and I am still sad about it. 2) It is the one place that Luke is not such a great skier, so to see him trying soooo hard makes me laugh. 3) I want to flap my wings and fly; and the hula hooping looks like so much fun too. 4) Many readers of the Yoga forum that I moderate write in to me about the Yoga on Wii, so if I won the system, I would finally know what they are asking me about. Jen, thanks for offering your friendly readers the chance to win this great swag!!

  342. jackie says:

    i’d use the wii in the early mornings to do some prenatal yoga/pilates before the toddler is up, and then some more in the evenings to play with him in an active sort of way. after new baby comes, i could use it in small bursts between baby naps to get rid of baby belly. :)

  343. Becky says:

    I need to exercise more, but I’m super shy about doing it in public! I’d much rather make a fool of myself doing yoga in the safety of my living room.

  344. Candace says:

    Game Night! Why make a fool out of yourself alone when you can make one out of yourself in front of 7 of your closest friends!!

  345. Jessica Smith says:

    I would love to have/use a Wii for exercising in the evenings! I live alone and do not always have a walking partner for after dark activities! This would be great for the nights when I’m working out solo and a lot less embarrassing than going to a gym! : )

  346. Piper says:

    I really NEED the wii Fit…..I have made too many of your great recipes recently….now I need to work those calories off pronto. ….right after I make the Eton Mess, of course.

  347. Debbie Marks says:

    I have been dieting since January when my blood sugar was a little higher than the Dr. wanted it to be. I would love to add the Wii fitness to my workout so I don’t feel guilty if I don’t make it to the gym. I’ve lost 35 lbs. so far and the Dr. was so pleased at my appt. this week. All vitals and blood were awesome. I would totally be able to get into ‘summer’ shape with the Wii!

  348. Lisa is Bossy says:

    Chances are 1 in 347 eh?…. Oh well it’s worth a shot. As a single “dog mom” I work all day and hate leaving my doggie at night in order to go to the gym or to a class. So I’d use a Wii Fit to work out at home and help get FIT!!! Woohoo!

  349. Speef says:

    I would love to have the wii fit to be able to workout in the comfort of my own home, saving money and losing the stress that comes with gym membership.

  350. Katie says:

    I would have my girlfriends that I do daily DVD video exercising with come over and do the Wii for something different and FUN!

  351. Patryce says:

    I would use a Wii to help my six year old be more active in the summer when it’s miserably hot outside!

  352. Valerie says:

    Exercise just doesn’t happen at my house unless it’s fun – which means that lately… no exercise. I think something like this would really get us up off our butts!

  353. Lauren says:

    I would love to have a Wii.. I like to exercise at my house so it would be perfect!

  354. Jenn says:

    I’ve played around with a Wii Fit–they’re so much fun! I would use one to exercise on crappy days and to have friends over to play. :)

  355. Andrew Hyde says:

    I will use the wii fit to work off the pounds I gain after eating the eton mess everyday. By far my favorite desert.

  356. Ben says:

    I will use the Wii Fit to gain 100 lbs of pure muscle and become the international bodybuilder that I’ve always dreamed of being.

  357. Karen says:

    Just recovering from knee surgery, will use it gingerly at first but will get the most out of it as I can.

  358. Amy says:

    I would get my Wii on without irritating my downstairs neighbor!

  359. Jen says:

    Wii Fit sounds like wiiiiiicked fun!

  360. Elizabeth says:

    I will use the Wii to host Super Smash Brother parties. Dibs on Princess Peach!

  361. Michelle says:

    I sit all day at work and school so I would use the Wii to do yoga. And when I’m too lazy to do that, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2!!

  362. colleen says:

    I will gladly plug that in to the wall and burn all those extra calories right off!

    I can’t resist commenting, because I’ve been lusting over the Wii (and especially Wii Fit) for months now! This past month, I began reading food blogs to escape the day-to-day depression of the Intensive Care Unit (I’m an ob/gyn resident and was required to do a one-month rotation there). On my pre-call days, I would often bake and bring goodies in to share with my coworkers. It was a great coping mechanism, but now I have a little bit of extra weight that I’d love to work off! The Wii fit would be SO helpful to get those workouts in, and I won’t have to give up my new baking hobby.

  364. Elaine says:

    ill be playing with my little cousins, their extra energyw ill make me lose more calories

  365. Narin Sead says:

    I’ll use the Wii Fit to help me get in much needed shape. My work doesn’t really allow me to make use of gym memberships, so it’d be really nice if I had something to work out with at home.

  366. Lisa Falls says:

    I need a Wii Fit to combat all the food I make from from URB. The Thai waitress is mad my friends and I don’t come in at all. I seen her at the market while getting more salted turnips for Pim’s Pad Thai. I got to get my Wii on! Since I do the cooking my friends (and hubby) will be doing the Wii. While they clean up it will have to be MY turn. Also I do speaker phone with my sister while she runs two miles on her Wii fit and I get ready for work. It would be awesome to run with her since we live two hours apart.

  367. Dawn says:

    I’m entering this giveaway for my friends whose house was burglarized last Friday. Nearly all of their electronics and jewelry were cleaned out, including their Wii, and none of it was covered by insurance, so if I win, I plan to give it to them.

  368. Laura says:

    I am pregnant and will be due in about 2 weeks. The Wii Fit would definitely help me lose the weight I have gained during this pregnancy.

  369. lynn @ human, being says:

    First, gorgeous pics as usual.

    Second, Eton Mess yum!

    Third Wii Fit: We fight over ours. I want one just for me, for the bedroom, so I can workout in peace without fighting for time with my kids. How’s that for honesty?

  370. erin says:

    I’ll get my Wii on during those hot summer days. When something is considered fun first then exercise second, that should be good enough to get up and get your Wii on!!

  371. Elisa says:

    I’ve got the WORST ankles – seriously for 20 years I’ve been twisting them and retwisting them. I finally got physical therapy (and finished it today!). I would LOVE to get a Wii Fit to help me continue strengthening and stretching. Plus it looks so fun!

  372. meg says:

    First I would do Wii yoga … then some kickboxing … maybe some bowling … LOL and then I think I would rest.

  373. Martha says:

    I would get up bright and early in the a.m. w/ my dog Bella and we can dance around the house Jane Fonda style.. but a new and improved Wii version! And then in the evenings wrap up my hectic day w/ some yoga (which I can never seem to make it to a class anymore so being able to do it at home will really help).

  374. Sandy says:

    I would love to get my wii on and rotate it into my exercise schedule!

  375. Molly says:

    I’ve developed a hip problem and, by extension, back problems recently and people keep telling me, Try yoga! But I’m intimidated to try a class (plus they’re expensive in the small town I live in). I would use my Wii and Wii Fit to break into yoga at home, even do Pilates, which has helped tremendously already and which I do from home too, from a DVD.

  376. Judith says:

    I would need a LOT of time with a Wii if I made that delicious mess!

  377. Becky says:

    I just had my first baby 2.5 months ago, and I would use the Wii fit to help me and my husband shed some of our baby weight (he gained some weight with me, whoops!). I’m also a nurse, and working three 13 hour days a week is exhausting, and to try to do a serious work out at 9:30 at night is exhausting. The Wii fit would be an awesome way to help me get in shape and relax too.

  378. Rosemary says:

    I would use Wii fit to jiggle my new baby love handles off!

  379. Sheri Garcia says:

    I will use the Wii fit to FINALLY do something about my weight and fitness. I have been looking at this for sometime and could maybe even convince Heather to join me! Thanks Jen.

  380. Cheryl says:

    I need Wii to kick my booty into shape! My husband and two kids will definitely join mii in the booty kicking fest.

  381. Diane L says:

    Oh, I will get my Wii on sweating profusely while my two akitas roll around on the floor laughing!

  382. Lucy says:

    I’m hoping it’s one form of exercise my skinny husband (who knows his metabolism will shrink one day) can learn how to do!
    I prefer being outside – but when it rains – oh yea – Wii time!

  383. michele says:

    I will get my four children off there computers and away from tv and we will get our wii on together.

  384. Felice says:

    I would get my wii on by trying everything it has to offer. I’d probably start with the yoga because it is something I have always wanted to try. I have been too scared to join a class for fear of falling over or something equally embarrassing.

  385. Elis says:

    Man, I want to give that balance board a try, my balance is shaky at best! Seriously, all of Wii looks like great fun. I’d love to have at-home yoga.

  386. Jen says:

    as a fun way to hang out with my apartment after a long day of school and work! plus, since all our time is constantly used in trying to balance being a good student and paying the bills, it rarely leaves any free time to go to the gym and work out. hopefully this will be able to help us both burn some calories and relax after hours in the library and labs! :)

  387. Fiona says:

    I will make sure to fit in a wii session right before dinner. That way, I can use pork as my inspiration to make it through the workout.

  388. Sue says:

    I will get up early, which I hate to do, to get in some Wii time. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  389. emhuze says:

    I will get my lazy bum off the couch and lower my cholesterol with rockin’ gyrations that will loosen up my old bones… after I eat some Eaton Mess…

  390. linda says:

    found you thru tartlette….thanks for including me in this awesome giveaway….wow!
    i will get it on w/a workout early in the a.m….& this seems like fun!
    i am ready for the challenge!

  391. Shobha says:

    Me…Me…Me…It would be awesome to win a Wiii..I have made the Sour cream coffee cake a zillion times and always a hit..

    Thanks for the give away and a great blog

  392. KAMI S. says:

    I would love to have a Wii /Wii Fit. I have just started a walking regime outdoors (at my husband’s suggestion), but I need to exercise other parts of my body and having fun would make it easier … and when it is raining/snowing outside my kids would get the exercise too. The whole family would be using it, not just me. The whole family would benefit year round from this opportunity.

  393. Karna says:

    I’m going to Wii wii wii all da way home!
    Actually, I’m going to have friends come over and enjoy this with me-eating and drinking the whole way through!

  394. Mrs Ergül says:

    I have never seen this before! Looks like fun!

  395. Hina says:

    My sister and I always work out together! With the Wii we’re going to have a completely new way to work out together! We’re going to have wii parties and invite the whole family over to see who can have the best bod by the end of the summer

  396. Sam says:

    Dude, my approximately 0.2% chance (extrapolating) would so get my Wii on after work, with the puppy running around me trying to figure out what’s going on. She’s so freaking smart I bet we could train her to use it! ;)

    I need to stop checking your blog when I’m hungry.

  397. Shosh says:

    i’d wii at home instead of going to the gym when it’s raining outside and don’t feel like dragging my butt there…also w/friends and lots of eton mess afterwards!!!

  398. AngelaMarie says:

    WOW! this would be great entertainment for my 2 little ones, seeing mama hop around, getting fit! after 2 miracles 1 1/2 years apart, I AM SOOOO READY to get into shape!

  399. farmerpam says:

    I’d get my wii on before I milked the cows in the morning. :) Love the poppies by the way.

  400. Judy says:

    Since I’m recovering from surgery the wii would be an awesome way for me to get back into the exercise mode!

  401. reagan says:

    I would us it in my daily routine, so after my evening walk or when it is raining out =D. Love the photos!!!!

  402. Kelly says:

    As a college student, it’s hard to find time to work out – I know my roommates and I would have fun hanging out and playing with the Wii, though! :)

  403. Erik R. says:

    With two kids, ages 3 & 6, as well as two full-time working parents, we’ve been looking for a way to incorporate family time and getting fit into our hectic schedules. This could possibly meet both of those desires…at least in part.

  404. Kelly Dugan says:

    I would be able to fit into my jeans and have fun with my roommates at the same time!!

  405. Jennifer R says:

    Our family has been wishing and hoping for a Wii ever since they first came out – it’s such a fun way to get in shape! And I will definitely need to burn off some calories after trying that amazing “mess” you just posted!

  406. James says:

    Post dinner party calorie burn with the Wii Fit!

  407. courtney h. says:

    playing video games is way more fun than traditional exercise!

  408. Jen B. says:

    I plan to Wii with my husband, turning it into a competition whenever possible!

  409. Veronica R. says:

    what would i do w/ the wii fit?
    party at my place!

  410. Matt says:

    My wife is trying to get in shape after having our first child, and I am trying to get in shape after recovering from a broken ankle.

    What better way to do it then with games on the Wii.

  411. Carissa says:

    I plan to use the Wii in between nursing my 3rd beautiful girl (2.5 weeks old, 20 months, 4.5 yrs) and keeping the other two from kissing her to death. And I’ll use it to instantly stream movies from Netflix during those 2:00 AM feedings…

  412. Jean Y says:

    I’m going to give it to my mom (70 in april) who has recently lost 20 pounds with 10 more to go. GO MOM!

  413. Anjali D says:

    With a Wii, I plan to supplement my workouts at the gym! I want to start working out twice a day (gained 40 pounds in 2 years from stress!!!) but gym workouts get boring! A Wii would add variety and keep me motivated! :)

  414. Alice Damsteegt says:

    This is going to be a FAMILY AFFAIR as we get movin’ with the Wii. I think we would actually use it or fight over it! Sounds good to me!


  415. Mom24@4evermom says:

    Everyday while the little ones nap, I will wii fit. It’s more important than cleaning or blogging, that’s for sure. :)

  416. Leona says:

    I would get my Wii on with the kids at the library. As a childrens librarian I would love to offer a Wii Fit program at my library. All of us could get our Wii on and be healthy at the same time!

  417. Kirsa says:

    I could use the wii to get back in shape. I have too much of a love for food, (as my fiance) and we could really do this to compete against one another :D

  418. Liz says:

    I had to give up the gym membership to save money when the baby was born…uh…almost 2 years ago! Would love to have this to go at it in my free time at home.

  419. Bridget says:

    I’ll add yet another way to cross-train. The more ways I have to get exercise in, the more fun it is and the more likely I am to do it!

  420. anniemade says:

    i’ll yoga yoga yoga! living as remotely as i do, it’s hard for me to stay motivated. having a partner, even a video game one!, will help me keep on going! thanks. this is so cool.

  421. Lisa says:

    I will use it to help me recover from breast cancer (diagnosed last September, surgery in November, just finishing chemo in May) and get back into the best shape of my life!

  422. Allie says:

    Ooh, I would totally do yoga, and pilates if they have that.

  423. Shirley says:

    I’ll use it to bond with my new roomies this summer! No better way to cement friendships than by looking ridiculous together while attempting yoga poses :)

  424. Jean says:

    I *LOVED* DDR, so I know that I use “exercise” video games. If I had a Wii, I’d use it on rainy days like today when I can’t get out and cycle!

  425. Liz says:

    I would get my hula-hooping on for some summer abs! No joke!

  426. Joanne Jones says:

    I would use it with my significant other to get us up off the couch and get some exercise together – I’m afraid we have picked up a couch potato habit.

  427. Amanda says:

    I would do some yoga with my kids. 5 year old boys trying to do yoga poses are hilarious!

  428. Deb says:

    A nice compliment to my twice weekly pilates workout. Think the Wii would be fab !!

  429. Bee says:

    Have you seen the video in youtube how adept cats are in using iPad? I’ll train my dog to do yoga on Wii Fit!

  430. Margaret says:

    I would use it to help relax and get back in shape after a loooong busy season at work.

  431. Sarah K says:

    My husband and I are dying for a Wii, but we have to set it up in the basement of our house, since we have 100 year old wood floors, and I hesitate to jump up and down on them. But we have a big lovely basement, just begging for a Wii and some people to enjoy it!

  432. Shannon says:

    A wii would be a great way for my friends/family and I to hang out and have some (healthy) fun! Wii fit sounds like super entertainment :)

  433. Irina says:

    I will get on with the times and wii-fy our family and most importantly, I will invite my friend over and finally get her to start exercising with me… I am sure she will enjoy the wii-yoga!!! I have been trying to drag her to work out with me FOREEVER!!!

  434. Cristina Arkin says:

    I would get my Wii on with my 4 year old and maybe finally lose that baby belly =)

  435. Yoshie says:

    I would like to do some ski jumping!

    Love your website – I use your ice cream recipes all the time. So, I guess I need the Wii fit to burn off those calories.

  436. Meaglet says:

    I love your photography. Thanks for offering us a chance at the Wii!

  437. Drew says:

    I’d get wiigy with the wife!

  438. daidai says:

    I’d get my wii on with the yoga!

    I just happened to bump into your site looking for Chinese food recipes, and I was so happy to find this! I’m definitely going to be following from now on :)

  439. Susan says:

    I’d get my Wii on when there’s a spring storm and I don’t have a climbing partner and my rec center pass has expired.

  440. Jess says:

    I tried doing the wiifit and loved doing the ski jumping! I’d love to use the Wii fit to do sports I wouldn’t normally do either because of lack of skill ( tight rope walking between buildings anyone?) or poor weather conditions (I wish I lived up in Colorado so I could go skiing more than once in a blue moon. Maybe wii skiing can satisfy my lust for the white powder)

  441. Nini says:

    I would loooooove a Wii! And so would my husband. If I won, I might let him use it. Or not. :)

  442. tanya says:

    Are there mii pet cats too? I have a couple who might like to be animated. I’d use the wii fit to vary my exercise routine up a bit.

  443. kaye says:

    Well as far as getting my Wii on I would definitely work out with my girlfriend. She is seven months pregnant and wants to lose quite a bit of weight after she has the twins. I could stand to lose a few pounds as well, that and I’d be moral support for her. Aside from paying an expensive gym membership, I think she would love it as a surprise. It would be nice to be able to come home to work out and not worry about finding a babysitter for the babies while we went to the gym. I think it’d be interesting and fun to talk about our day while doing some Kung Fu.

    As for your Eton Mess, that looks so delicious. Strawberries are the best thing ever, meringue right next to them, so I’ll definitely be trying this in the near future.

    (Shh. Just don’t tell my lady, ’cause I’m ‘posed to be on a diet. ;D)

  444. Marissa says:

    There’s 3 people in our household. My husband, Me and our 21 yr old daughter. We take 3 mile walk everyday to keep fit and Wii Fit (which ive been longing to have since christmas) will be a good addition to our daily exercise. We will definitely use this every single day. I hope I win. Thanks !

  445. Melissa says:

    I’d use it on winter days when it’s too cold to go running!

  446. jie says:

    i will wiiing with my mom at home after work and school. it’s going to be fun working out with her.

  447. Kristin says:

    I’d use it while my kids are napping. Finally, a fun way to workout at home!

  448. Phong says:

    I’ll probably get my Wii on with my little brother. Summer is coming, gotta stop being lazy.

  449. Jen V. says:

    Since I HATE the gym and can’t afford to buy workout equipment for my home, I’d LOVE the Wii Fit. Who wouldn’t love getting fit and having fun in the comfort of your own home?

  450. Fung Lee says:

    This year at our family Holiday get together my nephew brought his Wii game. He plugged it in at 1:00 pm and we didn’t unplug it till 1:00 am. At first it was just the kids playing with it. Then the adults got involved, we played with games that involved physical movements. We laughed so hard it was very funny to see the over 45 crowd peddling with your arms.
    The next day we were all in aches and pain just to show you haw out of shape, but what great fun. I would to use the Wii to get back in shape.

  451. Keesha says:

    I’m going to turn the guest room into a Wii room and get my downward dog and other asanas on! Good luck to all.

  452. Coralene says:

    My sister has Wii Fit Plus and I got to use it with her for just long enough to get hooked. I do go to a gym, but it would be nice to have something a little less strenuous to do at home!

  453. Shirley says:

    A Wii will give me an incentive to start excersing again so I can become more healthy and loose a couple of pounds that I have been promising myself for the past couple of years!

  454. Wend says:

    Wii – Yoga
    I am a certified group fitness instructor and am interested to see how the Wii really works in practice.

    Mess – Strawberries and cream is my guy’s absolute hands-down favorite desert from childhood. I’m definitly trying the addition of meringues for him.

  455. pat says:

    i’m going to get my husband off the computer and make him wii with me.

  456. Sagar says:

    The Wii will be great for my post-knee surgery getting back into shape!

  457. Melissa W. says:

    Wait until my husband is at work because I have a weird fear of exercising in front of people.

  458. Mimi says:

    I would get my Wii on by playing with my boys. Their old PS2 holds no interest for me because it’s not interactive. We’ve played the Wii at my sister-in-laws during the holidays and it’s such a blast. They’re in Chicago so we only play once a year. LOL I’d probaby end up playing it when my boys were at school during my days off from work! tee hee hee Dec-Feb are slow months at work and too cold in MN to go out & do anything so this would be helpful to keeping the weight down in the winter & keep me active.

    mnjesusfreak at gmail dot com

  459. Barbara R says:

    The Wii Fit will help me get fit because it makes exercise fun. Just stepping or walking on a treadmill to me is b-o-r-i-n-g but an interactive exercise tool that I can use with friends and family will get my butt off the couch. Said butt would become svelt in no time.

  460. Cindy says:

    I will get my Wii on every morning. I tried my friends Wii and love it!

  461. Grace J. says:

    My husband and I would compete on all the games trying to outdo each other’s score. My three kids would hopefully play nicely together, taking turns…yeah right. But we would all have a great time!

  462. Berna D. says:

    My only experience with Wii was at an otherwise extremely boring party. If Wii could turn that evening into so much fun, I can’t imagine how much more fun it would be to get it on with my hubby and friends. And it definitely wouldn’t hurt to lose a few calories in the meantime :)

  463. Sharon Brown says:

    I will use it to exercise.

  464. Jin says:

    I love the idea of getting friends together and making a party out of it!

  465. Kimberly says:

    I will use it to exercise — like pretty much everybody else…but being a stressed out and slightly insane law student, it will also sort of be therapy. :)

  466. Jesse B says:

    I’d make that if I had a free wii to work it off with. Otherwise, I’m sticking to just the strawberries!

  467. Carl says:

    I would use it to get more active and lose more weight!

  468. ben says:

    I would use a Wii and Wii Fit to lose the weight I gained along with my wife during her pregnancy!

  469. n says:

    I’d just start with anything to improve my coordination and balance so that I’m not a danger to others in real group fit activities.

  470. Elizabeth L says:

    Ooooh! I have lost 20 pounds but have 30 to go. After 3 hours daily of commuting to and from a job that I hate (and pays less than half of what I used ot earn but is better than the 13 months of unemployment that preceeded it!), I would use the wii (maybe yoga) to get rid of some of this stress and try to work off this last 30 pounds (and avoid cooking the yummy goat cheese flatbread posted today)

  471. Deborah Campbell says:

    I will get my Wii on to work on my stamina after breast cancer surgery (four surgeries of the last year) and an almost one-year-long job layoff! I got a great new job and need to build up my energy level again!

  472. Susan C says:

    I love Wii Fit!!!!!!! The only time I’ve really been able to use it is at Christmas when I visit my brother and his family. I stayed up WAAAAYYY past my bedtime trying to beat my brother’s score at the ski jump. Hah, I finally did it around 11:30 p.m. Awesome. Anyways, if I had a Wii, I’d be playing it every night trying to better my scores (and maybe being a little competitive against my boyfriend).

  473. Sarah says:

    I just cancelled my gym membership to save money this summer while i’m working as an intern at Seattle Children’s Theatre. A wii fit will help me keep the chub off and also keep me in touch with my kiddie side– definitely a requirement for the job!

  474. Kate D. says:

    I’m always looking for fun, new ways to work out and keep it interesting.

  475. Ana says:

    I am totally pumped to get my Wii on! :D Wonderful recipe :)

  476. Lucy says:

    I’d pig out first (because everything you make looks too damn delicious to not try at least once) and then work everything off with Wii Fit! I think it’s a perfect plan – eat everything but still fit my jeans.

  477. Amy Husk says:

    I will get my wii on during my daughter’s morning nap! Great blog!

  478. Megan says:

    I am a “Wii” bit intimidated that this is my first post to your blog. I have been “gawking” for the last 1 1/2 years – ever since I was blessed with my son entering the world. You are awesome! Your blog is way awesome! I too am a tele mama – but have been a “Wii” bit occupied with my new venture into parenthood and keeping up with my very energetic son to go out and huck some big air. Therefore, I would love to get my “Wii” on and get back in shape – not only for myself, but to keep up with my little mountain goat who is only beginning to explore his world!

  479. Angela says:

    I love the idea of incorporating FUN with fitness! Of course Wii Fitness does just that! I like that it’s easily accessible in your own home, making fitness not only fun but easy too!

  480. Shari from Ohio says:

    I got my grandson a Wii for Christmas and I have been having a blast playing with him. But I have to go to his house to “get my Wii on” and if I can win this….he can come to crazy grandma’s house.

  481. Steve says:

    Since I’ve started a regular gym regimen in prep for my upcoming wedding I would mix in time exercising on the Wii fit so that I don’t get bored with my routine. Thanks for the giveaway Jenn!

  482. Amy says:

    I will get my wii fit on everyday. I love a good challenge!

  483. Kate Sahler says:

    Thanks for the fun and tech-y giveaway! The Wii would be used to get my busy butt moving more often, in the comfort of my own home. Being a nursing student means very little time for going somewhere to work out or walk or hike!

  484. Kelly says:

    with my 3 kids coming home from college in May, we can bond this summer over Wii!

  485. Andrea S says:

    I would throw a huge Wii party for my friends…to work off the Eton Mess that we just ate! Thanks for the recipe and chance to win!

  486. Rus says:

    I’d give it to my wife… then I’d sit back and watch her get her Wii Fit on. Rowr!

  487. Margo says:

    I’d do it EVERY day, alone and with friends!

  488. Casey says:

    I will wii in my dorm room and all my floormates will be SO jealous so I’ll have to let them try =)

  489. Nina says:

    As a break from studying to become a nurse. It will be wonderful.

  490. joey says:

    The wii would make me fit on the hot summers and freezing winters here in WI

  491. Amy W says:

    I will get my wii on after making and devouring some of these delicious recipes.

  492. Ariel says:

    Wi would get our wii on in our new house here in Boise, ID! Keep up fit and firm during those hot, high desert summers.

  493. Rachel says:

    i’ll get my fit in between breaks from my lectures! fitting into my bridesmaid dress is important!! FIT, here i come!

  494. Allison says:

    wii fi is perfect for my tiny Brooklyn apartment, allowing me to do so much more with my tiny little space. i will rock out first thing in the morning–as a way of waking up before hopping on the subway

  495. Jodi says:

    I would love the wii fit! I have a lot going on these days, and finding the time to exercise is tough, but I know I could fit this into my day! I could definitely get my Wii fit on everyday! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  496. Christine says:

    I will finally try out some yoga…probably with the kids. It still counts as exercise if you’re laughing when you do the downward dog, right?

  497. gertrude says:

    Beside having our daily walk, my husband and I can get fit together indoor. My husband is not a sport person so maybe this way I can get him interest in it.

  498. Tiffany says:

    if I don’t find an internship for this summer, I will spend the entire day playing Wii Tennis and raising my endorphin levels so I won’t be sulky over not having a job.

  499. liz says:

    my kiddo & i will get our wii on, if given the chance. it has been a rainy spring and we’re both a little cabin-fevery. beautiful flowers!!!

  500. sara_k says:

    I’m a Kindergarten teacher and I could seriously use something quasi-adult and fun to do.

    I will (if I win!) use the Wii for boxing and yoga! Right after I make and eat some mess :).

  502. Sara Plays House says:

    I need a Wii to tell me I’m a 68 year old Granny. You know, to motivate my lazy butt.
    No really, I would LOVE to try out the yoga. :)

  503. Amy @ Ess Eppis says:

    Getting our Wii on gives my friends & me another reason to get together and great fun and great food!

  504. Jen says:

    The Wii will be getting on with the whole family. I imagine some friendly competition. Yoga will need to be just for me though.

  505. Julie @ Willow Bird Baking says:

    I’ll get my Wii on with my wee pup :D She’ll become a workout buddy instead of JUST a cooking buddy!

  506. Teri says:

    I could really use this. It’s so hard to make myself move! Maybe this would make it fun!

  507. Alyssa has PINK ANTLERS says:

    Ladies nights with Wii yoga and juice shooters! How fun would that be?? Delving into my community and getting my brownie laden booty moving!

  508. Mary T says:

    I would love, love, love to win this! I recently started running again after a 6+ year hiatus (and 50 pounds!) doing the Couch to 5K program. Now my husband and I are up to 30 minutes nonstop at a time! A Wii Fit would be an excellent thing to have for the off-days — especially here in rainy Seattle. Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  509. Amanda Misa says:

    The whole family would love to include this in game nights! But an even better idea- replace a few morning gym visits with at home workouts! Sounds divine!

  510. Amy says:

    Ooo I’d love
    to play Wii bowling vs my husband!!

  511. Angela Y says:

    This would be a FANTASTIC way for me and my boyfriend to get back into shape! We joined the gym together recently, and I’ve also been on the Couch to 5k program, now up to 20 min jogging (which I never thought possible). The yoga on wii fit will help tremendously for my back, and it’ll be a fun, encouraging way to keep up the exercise regimen, Thanks! Loving your blog, btw. It’s a recent discovery for me!

    Jen: i know you’ve heard this a million times but your shots are just STUNNING. i can’t even believe that those photos came out of the state that I live in!!! incredible.

    In regards to how I would fit in some wii fit – I’d make my mommy and daddy play me. they’re getting up in years and I want them around as long as possible. If it means me going over to their house every other day to play with them, I’m down for it. :)

  513. CB says:

    It aint no party unless it’s a WII FIT party! If I win I’d invite some of our neighbors and friends to eat food, make a Mii and lose those dinner party calories by doing a yoga warrior pose on the Wii balance board. Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway! Hope I win. :)

  514. RJ Flamingo says:

    Would love this – probably get me up off the couch, finally! Too embarrassed to go out in public and exercise, so I rarely get any at all. New morning routine: put on the coffee, feed the cats, get my Wii on!

  515. Jenny says:

    Wow!! seriously a WII giveaway??? I would love this. This would really give me something today when my boyfriend starts law school this fall. He’ll be locked away in the office studying and I’ll be cooking/baking – great way to burn off all this food, ha!! I am dying to try the WII Fit!!

  516. Travis says:

    my partner and I are having a competition to see who can lose the most weight and using a wii fit plus would definitely help me get the edge on him if not give us more competition to use.

  517. jenyu says:

    Thanks to everyone for your entries. The giveaway is over now, but feel free to leave any questions/comments about the recipe. xo

    I plan on entertaining my parrot. His big cage is in the front room near the tv, while Wii’ing (is that a word?)
    I’m sure he’ll wonder what kind of spaz dancing I’m doing and will break out into his infamous “belly roll” laugh ….
