My Torrid Love Affair… and a Giveaway!

In my post, My Dirty Little Secret, I reluctantly confessed something, and I revealed my torrid love affair with Le Creuset… the bad boy of stoneware and cast iron cookware. Every time I go to the outlet malls in our town I stop by the Le Creuset shop and fondle all of their cookware. It is hands down the best out there- but, sadly, way above my budget.

L.C.

But it doesn’t have to be way above your budget. Would you like the chance to win a few pieces?

Just clickety HERE to read more and enter!


Happy baking,

I am barely relevant because I don't know what store or product you're referring to. Maybe there aren't any in the midwest or maybe I don't get out enough. But they look pretty so I'l enter.

Jess said...

What a neat giveaway! Looks like great stuff. If I won, I'd probably need to learn how to cook, huh?
