I’ve Neglected You, Let me Make up For it

There I said I have neglected you, all of these promises of multiples posts have gone down the tubes and I swear I have a good reason. Just look.

I know I have said that Christmas is my favorite time of year and its the Truth. This is what I gift family, friends and coworkers with this season. But it comes at a price to you , this takes a lot of planning and preparation and time. So to make up for it I have partnered with Cookware.com to give you a chance to win something special. (And don’t worry I will be sharing my Christmas box recipes with all of you very soon!)

A Le Creuset 1 Quart Oval Au Gratin Pan. And you get to pick the Color Kiwi, Cobalt or Cherry! I have one of these and I love it. I slowly started to upgrade some of my stoneware baking dishes to Le Creuset and I love all of them. So now you can have a chance to win a pan that I love so much!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My current favorite kitchen gear would have to be the Breadman Pro (TR875, http://bit.ly/78NVPP) which gives me fresh bread with no timesink. Since I have to be gluten free these days, this is a BIG deal to me. But I cook with Le Creuset and you can never get too much of it. LOVE that stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  48. My favorite piece of kitchen equipment is my huge Thai granite mortar and pestle. I use it a lot more than I thought I would when I got it, and I just love the idea of it, crushing things to smithereens--with a happy ending!

  58. My KitchenAid standing mixer is my favorite thing in my entire kitchen. It replaced another mixer a few years back that we got when we got married at a garage sale.

    It looks like those you gave gifts to got a lot of sweet treats, hopefully with chocolate and salt?

    I think I have my blogger set to send me direct emails just not to publicly publish my email.

  78. I just tweeted the giveaway but don't know how to do a link to it. I did put @saltandchocolat in the tweet. My Twitter user name is ddh77. I think I hit cancel instead of publish for my first comment here, so sorry if I am repeating myself. My favorite kitchen tool is a paring knife that I've had for ages. The recipients of your gift boxes are going to be VERY happy people! Voting was closed, but your stuffed mushroom looked scrumptious. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway. Happy Holidays! {foodie ffanatic - Dani H - ddh77- dd.h930 [at] gmail [dot] com}
