Crushing on Colton – American Idol Live Portland #Giveaway

american idol logoYes, so I admit it.

I am one of the umpteen million people that watch American Idol.

However, I did skip a few seasons, but last year I was back in it from beginning to end.

So, here’s another confession.. I kinda sorta have a mom crush on both Phillip Phillips and Colton Dixon, okay more so on Colton. I was literally crushed when he was voted off, but I gotta tell you that the performance he gave as the show was ending that night was amazing. So amazing, I even wrote a post about it.

Where was I?

Oh yeah, so I like American Idol and Colton Dixon. 🙂

american idol live portlandIf you’re a fan like me you know that every year the top 10 contestants on the show go on a concert tour afterward. This year the tour is sponsored by CHIPS AHOY! & RITZ. And seriously?? What could be better than watching Colton and snacking on some chocolate chip cookies??

As presenting sponsors, CHIPS AHOY! and RITZ are thrilled to bring the excitement of the tour to their fans in a number of awesome ways, including a one-of-kind consumer promotion that gives two lucky fans the chance to win a unique side-stage concert experience at one of the tour concerts. All you have to do is head to for more info on how you can enter.

Since it’s summer and all, I thought that I would also share with you a “show-stopping” recipe that is perfect no matter the occasion.

These are Chewy Chips S’mores!

Think of them as a no roasting alternative to regular s’mores. (Actually, if you still want to roast your marshmallow that’s cool too and tastes even better!) One addition I recommend is to spread some peanut button on one of the cookies.

Excuse, I need to go wipe off the drool.

That’s better.

So, remember how up there ^ I wrote about the cool ways CHIPS AHOY! and RITZ are getting their fans excited about the tour? Well, I have one more.

  13. I love AI! I’m like you where I was really in to watching the first four or five seasons then dropped it. I started watching as soon as JLo and Steven Tyler came on because I love them both! My favorite last season was Heejun – he was hilarious! But I like you had a crush on both Colton and Phil. I like Phil a bit more so you can take Colton and his skinny jeans and I’ll take Phil and his guitar lol
