Google Nexus 7 Tablet {Giveaway}



It is the time of the year that I bake a lot getting ready for the Holidays. For me baking is total relaxation. I listen to Christmas music and prepare treats for friends and family. It is my passion and in another life I will own a bakery. 

If you would ask me what is your favorite tool in the kitchen, I would answer a tablet. I am using it all the time to cook and bake. I can browse food websites, blogs, read food magazines, watch TV shows and have quick access to recipes on my blog.

Recently Staples Canada sent me a Google Nexus 7 tablet. I have been using it for couple days and I am very please with the tablet so far. The Google Nexus 7 is one of the best tablet on the market right now.  It is so popular that many stores are sold out at the moment. 

If you were looking at buying one this Holiday Season and could not get one, here is your chance to win one. Staples Canada have been very generous and are giving aways one Google Nexus 7 tablet to one lucky reader of La Cuisine d'Hélène. Ins't this exciting? All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below.

Please read to find out how I am using my new tablet:


Browsing La Cuisine d'Hélène for recipes. The pictures are crisps and beautiful. I like the size of this Google Nexus 7 so much. It fits in my hand.



I am a bit obsessed with Pinterest. I could look at food pictures all day long. I am using the App on my tablet and it works like a charm.



One of my favorite App is Evernote. I use it like a cookbook and store my recipes. I can have quick access to them from anywhere. 




It is a breeze to browse La Cuisine d'Hélène on the Google Nexus 7.
