Le Creuset Review and Giveaway with CSN Stores and NCF!!

I was so excited about the opportunity to do a Le Creuset Review and Giveaway with CSN Stores!!

This is my first Le Creuset! And it is fabulous! I was so excited to finally receive my bakeware items to review! One was on backorder so I couldn't wait to hear that last knock at the door from the UPS man! :)

I, along with Hubby's help, ended up choosing the Kiwi green. I was actually a little worried about the depth of color, how it seemed to fade as it worked it's way to the tops of the dishes based on the pictures online. But when I received it, it was beautiful. So much better in person. The only thing is the color of the interior was a little bit different for the smaller two dishes and the larger piece.

And guess what I made to christen our new Le Creuset??? I took the advice of many of my Southern friends and got in on the Poppyseed Chicken action! We all (especially Hubby and Little) LOVED it! (I also made it for some friends who just had a baby (I found out when we dropped it off it was her favorite meal! I hoped mine turned out ok!) and they LOVED it, AND ate the leftovers, and she doesn't eat leftovers ;)) Thank you Kelly for sending me the link to your recipe!

So in the 12.5" x 9" I made our main dish: Poppyseed Chicken, in the 10.5" x 7" I made our side dish: Zucchini Herb Rice Casserole (which did not go at all with the poppyseed chicken! I went a little heavier on the rice thinking it would be a nice rice dish to accompany the chicken, nope! :) the flavors did not go, but would be yummy for something else [and I cut the cheese down too :)] and I had made some extra brown rice that I topped the chicken over!), and in the 7" x 5" I made our veggie: roasted broccoli (just a little EV Olive Oil and garlic salt!)!

Final thoughts on our new Le Creuset cookware: It cooked evenly, it stored wonderfully in the fridge until we finished the leftovers, it washed beautifully in the dishwasher, and it's pretty! :) And did I mention it was easy to clean?! Love that!

Now it's your turn!!! You have the chance to win some fabulous pieces of Le Creuset from CSN Stores!!

I love Le Creuset! I'd go with red to match my other pieces.

Lora Lynn @ Vitafamiliae said...

The teal/blue would totally match my kitchen.

melissa said...

I would absoulutely choose the teal/blue....even though it doesn't even remotely match our kitchen!!

Shannon said...

YUM - that food looks so good!

Honestly, I don't know what color I'd choose - we don't have any colorful dishes or primary colors in our kitchen!

The Farmer Files said...

Love the blue you have at the bottom of this post!

PinkSass said...

What a great giveaway. I would go with the green that you got.

Nina @ AccordingtoNina.com said...

What a great giveaway! I actually have an order started in my CSN Stores cookware.com cart. Thanks to the generosity of our wedding guests, our Le Creuset set has already been started in Cherry. I LOVE the red but I also love the dijon color. Actually I love all the colors. I've been dying to get a casserole dish (one thing I didn't get for shower or wedding) so I can make this Mexican Chicken Casserole via myrecipes.com http://www.myrecipes.com/recipes/gallery/0,28548,1874369,00.html.
I do love the CSN Stores cookware.com Le Creuset specials - for example you get 2 baking dishes with purchase of this 3 quart Saucier pan http://www.cookware.com/Le-Creuset-L2557-2467-LEC1114.html
Also, in my cart :)
Yes, I'm addicted. Hope I win!

I have wanted my own Le Creuset for so long and I just love their Cobalt Blue! Thanks for the giveaway.

southerngraduate said...

Love this giveaway! I think I'd pick white, but I love the kiwi that you got.

The blue for sure! But I love these things! I have a mini one and love it!

Rebecca (Craving Simplicity) said...

Oh I hope I win!!! I don't own any Le Creuset yet, but it's on my list of things for my dream kitchen!! My safe choice would be blue...but I might go wild and pick red. :)

Lucky in Love said...

I'm pretty sure I would choose red. I have a lot of red appliances in the house and those would go perfectly!

And I would DEFINITELY be making mac 'n cheese :)

Emily said...

ahhh how fun:) I would go with red or kiwi green:) Soo fun! I feel like I need to order these;) ha

MBF said...

I think we would go with the kiwi green. We tend to love that color and we use it to cook everything in since our oven is usually our quick, no fuss, go to method.
