a gift and a giveaway

My Sweet Man got me this movie (along with just about everything else on my list) this Christmas and I have already watched it about 5 times - maybe more.

The thing about watching this movie is it makes you want to cook. And cook. And cook.

My Sweet Man is the gourmet cook in our family, and I am the baker, though I have a few tricks up my sleve in the savory department as well (I make a yummy batch of Chicken -n- Dumplings if I do say so myself!)

For Christmas I tried to get him the perfect Christmas gift- a nice new baking dish. Turns out what I bought was a stoneware baking dish (sort of like the ones from Rachel Ray cookware ) but what he really wanted was a Cast-Iron Enamel Baking Dish. Not that he wasn't grateful for the one I got him, but it wasn't exactly what he was hoping for...

Luckily the kind people at CSN Stores are saving my bacon!

They are sending me a Enamel Cast-Iron Baking Dish to review, and drum roll please, they are also generously GIVING AWAY one also to one of my very LUCKY READERS!

So stay tuned and I will keep you posted about days to enter etc.
Right now I have to go pick out the perfect Julia recipe that we will use to test our new dish once it arrives...

If this is any indication of what the 2010 is going to be like, I am already overwhelmed with gratefulness!


  1. Julia & Julia is on a very short list -- flawless movies. Lucky you!
    -- daddyo

  2. Ooops -- Julie & Julia, of course.

  3. will it be a dutch oven that can go stovetop to oven? if so, boeuf bourguignon would be lovely

  4. My husband and I saw it the first day it came out. We loved it! We have a Le Creuset dutch oven and it is the best!!! Brian makes boef bourguignon every year we host Christmas. He uses Ina Garten's recipe. I think it is a variation of Julia's.

  5. I use Ina's too... in my big Le Creuset Dutch oven. Yummy yum yum!

  6. How exciting! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled!

  7. Dying to enter. And to win this. I'll be watching.


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
