Le Creuset Giveaway

Le Creuset Giveaway // www.acozykitchen.com

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? I spent Saturday in Laguna and yesterday I was testing some recipes while House of Cards played in the background and OMGooodness. That season premiere was INSANE!

In other news, today we have a La Creuset Giveaway. Do you have a French Oven? It’s one of my most-used kitchen items. I literally use it at least a few times a week. I use this for everything from making soups to braising meats to making bolognese–it’s so versatile!!

And, it’s even better because this is Le Creuset’s new color, PALM, which I think is just dreamy. Today the giveaway is for this 5 1/2 quart French Oven in the color, PALM.

Le Creuset Giveaway // www.acozykitchen.com

To enter this giveaway, follow these steps:

1. Follow A Cozy Kitchen on Facebook and Instagram.

2. Go over to Le Creuset’s site and check out all of their pretty cookware in PALM.

3. Comment here telling me what your favorite Winter meal has been thus far. (I know most of you have been dealing with some serious cold weather.)

A winner will be chosen at random on Friday, February 21st 2014 at noon PST.

(This giveaway is sponsored by Le Creuset!!)

————————————————-

This giveaway is now closed! The winner is Kristel who said, “Whole roasted chicken is perfect for cold nights. The oven warms the house and leftovers can be used in a million ways.”

Thanks to all who entered – I loved reading through your ideas for Winter comfort food!!

i think my favourite winter meal so far has to be a good stew and dumplings. my son loves to help me cook and making dumplings is his favourite thing plus he finds them “yummy in his tummy” so i guess it is win win.

I love a good beef stew in a nice stew pot. I don’t have one, so I settle for the crock pot. Just not the same. I would love to own a French oven like that. My mother always used a dutch oven for stew and it was luscious.

Anyhoo, winter has not really arrived here in Germany yet… But the last months, I got totally hooked on vegan/raw nutella, or notella as some call it… I mean… Delicious Avocado Chocolate Spread… That is like being in heaven!

Megan February 17, 2014 at 6:50 am

That colour is so gorgeous and goes perfectly with my Kitchenaid mixer and new toaster. I am seriously coveting this set. (Is it bad to be too matchy matchy? I don’t even know if I care, but I don’t want to be like the sister-in-law on Breaking Bad with her purple obsession!)

My favourite winter meal of the moment is Chicken Pot-au-Feu. So easy and warm and delicious. And I can just throw in whatever I have in the kitchen and toss it in the oven. Easy peasy. (And perfect to make in a dutch oven!)

My favorite dutch oven recipe for winter right now is layered veggie enchiladas. I just learned to make it and it’s always good and easier than the regular rolled way. Last year it was chicken noodle stew (heavy on yellow and orange carrots) and the year before that a thick grass fed beef stew. All winter recipes for me are delicious when there is extra spice from cayenne or jalapenos.

We have been blitzed with snow storms and freezing temperatures in NYC and there is nothing better than a roast dinner when the snow is falling and it is cold outside. A roasted chicken on a Sunday evening means amazing leftovers in the following days. Just delicious.

I think my favorite winter meal is one we actually made up last night! I over cooked a grass fed beef roast (a crime!) and my wonderful boyfriend turned it into a delicious soup! He added the meat to a soup pot to caramelize, then added onions and all the cooked down veggies we had in the roast. Then added the beef broth, leftover steamed white rice and a little bit of barely to give it some bite. The veggies cooked down and made the soup really thick, and the meat was moist again! I even had homemade corn muffins in the freezer I toasted up in the oven to eat with it. The best part is using all those leftovers to make something phenomenal. Oh, and eating it 😉

It’s not exactly a winter dish, but since my use of the stove is limited in the summer (I live in Phoenix and I live a take-out food life between April-October), my favorite thing to make in the cold months is fried chicken. I use a hybrid of David Chang’s momfuku recipe and Thomas Keller’s recipe and the result is a wonderful, gluttonous crispy chicken-fest. I made it on Christmas eve with your blue corn muffins. DA BEST.

The dish was incredible, and hubs picked out an exquisite wine to pair, giving us a welcome treat after a long day of cheese-hunting.

A couple of weeks ago, my partner got their wisdom teeth removed and wasn’t able to eat anything for a few days afterward. My city, at the time, was having a poutine competition, so as soon as my partner was feeling marginally better, I rushed to get us a lobster poutine for our first days back in the solid food world. It was great to have a break from the Torontonian winter to have a taste of the sea – even if I did have to cut it up into tiny, palatable pieces. That’s been my favourite winter meal. :)

What a beautiful color! Le Creuset has indeed outdone themselves!

In the winter, even though I’m one who loves to go out, staying at home has been a respite to the wintry days. Since there are so many hours to spend, a rare but treasured soup that I like to make is kkori gomtang. It’s a Korean oxtail soup, where you boil beef bones hours upon hours until the milky broth forms. Place that overnight, and boil the oxtail until it’s almost falling out the bone. This soup helps with the cold, and it’s a simple meal that packs so much flavor (with rice and seaweed… oh yum!).

Dying over Le Creuset’s new collection in this color! Palm is the perfect name for this dream shade… Since I live in Southern California, the land of palm trees, I am completely obsessed with this french oven! My favorite winter meal, thus far, has been a classic French Onion Soup. Would be amazing to make it in a gorgeous Le Creuset French Oven!

My favorite winter time meal is the chicken soup my mom makes. It’s deliciously hearty and warms up my soul! She uses free range chicken from Wisconsin farms and adds potatoes, carrots, bowtie pasta, along with other veggies. She then adds a handful of rice to make it a bit thicker. It’s deliciously good!! :)

I’m 7 months pregnant so food and I haven’t been quite getting along this fall/winter – which is SO sad because I normally LOOOOOVE fall and winter flavors. Lately, we’ve made Ina Garten’s Pastitsio recipe and because there weren’t too many funky seasonings going on in there, I totally dug it. GREAT comfort food! We also really like Cook’s Illustrated’s version of Shepard’s Pie which is like the fanciest Shepard’s Pie you’ll ever meet – like the royalty of Shepard’s Pie – it should come with a tiara on top of the fancy, swirled mashed taters!

Pastitsio (I suggest making extra bechamel and adding garlic to it). Also….WE MAKE THIS IN A DUTCH OVEN! We have a giant 7.5 qt one, but have been wanting a smaller one for artisan breads (I recently acquired a sour dough start).

Palm Dutch Oven be mine!!

So over this arctic weather in the NE! Something that has been keeping my body happy + healthy + warm + full is a roasted cubed butternut squash + lemony garlic kale + grilled mushroom/purple onion pasta.

It’s pretty simple to make and makes my belly smile while I’m watching the snow fall for the MILLIONTH time outside.

It may be cliche, but my favorite winter meal is a good old pot of chili (I make mine with all the regular ingredients + Italian sausage, chipotle peppers, and a can of baked beans) topped with cheddar, Fritos, and green onions. I could eat it several times a week and be happy!

My go to winter meal is always chili (because I am from Texas and it’s probably the state dish, along with chicken fried steak). Even though my family firmly believes that chili should never have beans in it, my favorite lighter and healthier recipe is a turkey chili with black beans and pinto beans. So amazing on cold evenings (which we’ve had a ton more of this year!)!
I’ve been obsessed with Le Creuset’s stuff and can’t afford it, this new color is amazing!

Seeing as how I live in Boston, I NEED a new Palm Le Creuset to add that unique browning to my coq au vin and deep gratins. My go to’s amongst feet of snow attempting to add some warmth to my bones have been veggie loaded soups and stews, and bringing worldly flavors to the kitchen with turmeric and coconut milk. Maybe I’m trying to trick myself into thinking I’m on a tropical Island, but I couldn’t think of a better color for my Le Creuset to get me there (get it, palm tree?) :)

My favorite winter meal is spaghetti bolognese-can’t go wrong with a bowl along with a great glass of red wine!

I live in Montana where the weather changes every 20 minutes, and this winter has been ridiculous. I’ve been making lots of soups, especially chicken tortilla and baked potato soups (always in a bread bowl, because duh).

I also don’t have facebook, but I follow you on instagram!

Winter comes on the tundra in full force..(Minnesota) .Eating a warm(spicy) bowl of chili with crackers and milk makes me feel like I’m a human tucked in the house rather then a badger, hole-up, waiting for spring.

My favorite winter meal this year has been polenta! I love how versatile it is. I make a big pot of it, mix in whatever cheese I have, and then I can use it with such a variety of toppings! Or I can transform them into polenta fries (which is what I did using your recipe a week ago!). Mmmmm….

It’s gotta be soup with some crusty bread! My favorite is probably corn & potato chowder.

Brussels sprouts roasted with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and sesame seeds over brown rice–simple, hearty and delicious.

Oooh, it’s a toss up between the traditional comforting lasagne (for which half my love is the actual making of it) OR I’ve recently fallen in love with Turkey meatball oriental noodle soup… Yum!

My favorite winter meal is soup! Hot, creamy soup! Any kind will do, butternut squash, parsnip or even seafood chowder. If I have time to hit the store that day, I will even serve it in a bread bowl, which scores huge points with my 4 kids (I mean my husband and 3 kids).

Oooh, the Palm color is beautiful! I recently signed up for a CSA and made salmon with oranges and fennel en papillote. Yum!

Winter root vegetable salads of rutabagas, turnips, fresh parsley, red cabbage, freshly grated turmeric root, apple cider vinegar, orange zest and fruit, and avocado. All served over sunflower seed pate and upon a Savoy cabbage leaf. I live in the Pacific Northwest where many of these ingredients are seasonally available.

My favorite winter warmer on these blustery cold days is a Braised Short Rib with cocnut saffron cauliflower mashed! After 3 1/2 hours in a French oven, the meat falls right off the bone and is packed with flavor!

My favorite winter meal thus far has been a mushroom pot pie/casserole creation I made. I used biscuits instead of crust and it was delicious! But I can’t wait to try your Mushroom Bolognese!

Warm hearty homemade chicken and veggie stew is one of my favourite dishes to make and keep warm in the winter months. Slow cooked, simple and sooo comforting.

What a beautiful color! It makes me even more anxious for spring, if that’s even possible…

I think my favorite winter meal this year has been the toasted sage gnocchi that my husband and I made for Valentine’s Day!

I attempted a new recipe for Fried Chicken on valentine’s day. This was my second attempt in my entire life. First time was a major fail and I swore off ever trying again. I was very delighted that this new method came out perfectly!
