$60 CSN giveaway!!


Here we go girlies...it is time again for one of my favorite things...

A GIVEAWAY!

CSN Stores has graciously asked if one of my readers would like the chance to win a gift certificate that would be good at one of their 200+ stores and I of course could not say "YES!!" fast enough! I took some time to look through their site...checking out all the products and stores they had to offer and simply put...I was AMAZED! They have everything...and I mean EVERYTHING you could want for your home!! But I looove to cook, so was immediately was drawn to the Le Creuset cookware.



Have you ever cooked or baked anything in a piece of LeCreuset? I have a few pieces...and it is amazing to say the least! My birthday is right around the corner, so I just may have to leave their website up on the screen the next time my sweet man sits down at the computer! CSN just happens to have it many of the famous LeCreuset colors, but bright white is still my favorite!

But back to the giveaway...CSN is offering one of my readers a

$60 gift certificate!

Here's the scoop.

Leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing you cook or bake for your family.
(P.S. If you don't cook and are lucky enough to eat out every night, I am super jealous but will still take your comment as an entry!)
Oh, and I reserve the right to ask for the recipe if I think it sounds delicious...just so you know!

In honor of school starting, I will give "extra credit" to anyone that becomes a follower of my blog.

And a third entry goes to anyone that mentions the giveaway on their blog.

(Just be sure to leave me a separate comment for each!)

Comments will close on Thursday September 2nd.

 I will choose the winner via Random.org and post the name of the lucky reader on Friday September 3rd.

The winner will receive a $60 gift certificate to be used at ANY of their 200+ stores. Isn't that just fantastic?? Oooh...how I wish I could enter!

Good luck!

    I LOVE Le Creuset cookware! We're vegetarians, and I'm always cooking up a big pot of Lentil Minestrone in my French Oven. Loaded with fresh veggies from the garden, the kids devour it!

    Thanks, Mary!

    My favorite thing to bake for my family are Scottish Butterscotch scones! The are the perfect balance and not too sweet to have with a cup of joe or tea if your Scottish!

    Thanks!

    I'm sort of the unofficial baker of the family so I usually end up bringing dessert to all of the family gatherings. Some of them are so popular that I don't dare change what I bring. Probably my most popular dessert is Tripe Berry Pie that I only make for the Fourth of July.

  44. I dont know CSN - but will have to check them out. I love my LeCreuset dutch over. It's great for roasting a chicken - or making chili and soups - but I actually use it twice a week to whip up a batch of Dr. Harvey's Dog Food. My pup had cancer 4 yrs ago - so I make Dr. Harvey's which is a multi-grain/veggie oatmeal type mix - (you had a cooked protein like poached chicken - or browned ground round). Each batch makes 7 servings - so I have to do it 2x a wk - but I love my LeCreuset so much its makes it fun! -Wendy

  68. Mary,
    I too love Le Creuset cookware. I have a dutch oven, and many things from roast chicken to dutch babies are made in that pot! I also have a red tea pot that is Le Creuset...love it, so cheery on my stove top! My favorite, since the weather is changing...Potato leek soup...such creamy goodness! Already a loyal follower! : )

    ReplyDelete
  69. I, too love Le Creuset! Received a great pot for my wedding 32 yrs ago (before I knew how great it is) and now appreciate it. I really enjoy cooking a pot roast and veggies when the weather cools. Since it's in the 90's here, I am just dreaming of cooler days ahead. By the way, enjoy your playlist.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Now that my kids have grown and gone and it is just me and my husband now. I don't cook much anymore but healthy boring stuff. Have to watch all the "numbers' when you get to be a certain age, you know! When we do all get together I sometimes make lasagna, like I used to.~Patti

    ReplyDelete
  74. One of my kids came back home so I am cooking more. Favorite things to cook are soups and stews if it ever cools off some. Baked potato soup goes the fastest so that must be the best. Also homemade pizza wish I had a brick oven. Gumbo and Etouffee when we have a big family dinner.
    By the way I love your blog. sandra key

  75. I will be keeping my fingers crossed as I follow along! I am not much of a cook but my daughter loves my eggs portugal and my son loves my chicken soup. They were both my Mom's recipes!! If they ask for it I must be doing something right!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh, it's so hard to pick that I will give you a few...we are always trying new recipes and coming up with new favorites. My absolute favorite of all time my mom's Veal Saltimbocca from the Mama Leone cookbook. My new favorite is stuffed squash blossoms...so delicious - you make a mixture of herbs, garlic and goat cheese, stuff it in the squash blossom, dip in egg and flour and fry. DELISH! Third, is a very labor intensive cream cheese chocolate brownie that is absolute heaven on earth. The recipe is from the Magnolia cookbook. Wish me luck!

    Hmmmm...my thoughts this time of year always turn to chili. Thrown together in my crock pot; Hot and bubbly with turkey burger, lots of kidney and red beans, homemade stewed tomatoes, and sprinkled with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese. Served in that lovely little white LeCreuset bowl, it would be quite lovely alongside a chunk of homemade cornbread dripping with a pat of butter. Mmmmmmm!

  152. Le Creuset in white is gorgeous. I love making batches and batches of chocolate chip cookies, 7 or 8 dozen at a time. Sometimes I use butterscotch chips instead. My guys gobble them up in no time and I swear my relatives living close by can smell when I'm baking! My grown nephews bargain dyi help for cookies.
