Le Creuset giveaway!

Time for another giveaway!

le creuset baking dishes

Besides a good stand mixer, I feel like Le Creuset is a a classic symbol of a well-stocked kitchen. When I first started learning to cook (aka, obsessively watching the Food Network), I saw them everywhere: these huge dutch ovens and stock pots, in gorgeous colors, resting on the stove top, just waiting to be used to make soup or risotto or macaroni and cheese.

I wanted one! But what color? Maybe I needed them all? How in the world would I ever decide what color to get?

Sometimes – when you don’t know how to cook – these are the only things you think about in the kitchen.

But – lucky for me (and for Nick) – now that I spend time in the kitchen cooking, I know why all those tv chefs had them on their sets and why they are always pictured in kitchens in magazines.

Le Creuset are known for being dependable, sturdy, classic. And beautiful! They have new colors coming out all the time, including their newest: palm.



My Le Creusets are used all the time – for paella, risotto, pasta sauce, jam. You name it, it’s probably been made in one. They’re my favorite!

One lucky winner will get a 5.5 quart french oven, in the color of their choice! That’s right – if you win, you get to pick whatever color you want. I’d suggest deciding now, because they’re all beautiful and it will be hard to choose.

Good luck!!
