giveaway time!!

so you may remember that a few days (or maybe weeks) ago I mentioned an upcoming giveaway... well the time has come!


The wonderful people at CSN Stores & Cookware.com have sent me this great Emerilware Cast-Iron Enamel Deep Dish Baker to test drive, AND they are going to also send one to one of my very lucky readers!!

Isn't that just great??


Sunday night my sweet man, the savory gourmet of the casa, decided to take our new pan for it's inaugural test-drive, by making his version of Julia's Gratin Dauphinois.




For those of you who do not know why cast-iron enamel is so fabulous I will tell you (and this is something I didn't know until my Sweet Man filled me in,) Cast-Iron Enamel pans can go from stove top to oven and back again without exploding (like Pyrex and stoneware.) This makes it perfect for cooking lots and lots of yummy things, also since it is cast-iron and therefore very heavy, it is also good for propping open doors if needed.

See here this pan is sitting on 2 burners, bubbling away and nothing has exploded except our taste buds at the yummy smells of garlic and cream together...

Now that the potatoes are cooked through it is time to take the dish from the stove top to the oven broiler to melt the cheese and herb butter topping.


All done and ready to eat, so warm and yummy and perfectly cooked!
Hooray for the new dish!!

If you would like to win this little pan here are 4 ways you can enter to do so
(and you can gain an extra entry for each of these things if you choose to do them)
1) Leave a Comment *easy peasy*
2)Facebook a link to this post
3)Twitter a link to this post
4)Blog a link to this post

***And Make sure to let me know if you have facebooked/twittered & blogged so I can make sure you are entered the appropriate amount of times!***

GOOD LUCK friends!
I will announce the winners on Jan 21!

    What a great giveaway Jerusalem. I stumbled across your blog a little while ago. A link from a link from a link... Lucky for me. Sometimes I wonder what if the world was one big snow globe and we could gently shake it up so that kindred spirits could find each other. Maybe the internet is like that. Thanks for your generosity with this giveaway!

  29. Can I just say I wish someone had told me that pyrex would explode if you took it from cook top to oven? Cause I found out the very hard way. The kind of hard way that leaves a glassy green bean mess in the oven.
    And, Sara Beth tweeted, I'm proof!

    Hmmm...might just have to add Lark Rise to Candleford to my netflix. Sounds interesting!

    As for sofas, you might check to see if you have a JC Penney outlet within a 100 miles of you. I bought their slipcovered Friday sofa for a mere $199.00! Granted I don't know how often they get them in, but it's worth checking on.
