Chile and Corn Chowder & a BigKitchen Le Creuset Giveaway


Our final Soup Kitchen Monday is here! I’m kind of sad about this one, as my inner obsession with soup really made itself known during the last 13 weeks.

We’re going out with a bang though! The wonderful people over at BigKitchen worked some Christmas magic, and were able to send me a beautiful Le Creuset French Oven to whip up these classic soups and stews for you while I was running the Soup Kitchen. Talk about making the holidays cherry and bright!

The French Oven has pretty much replaced all of my old stock pots, except for that giant over-sized one that I use for turkey brining.  The value of the product speaks for itself the first time you lift the sturdy handles of this hefty cast iron behemoth. If you have never experienced the joy and quality that is Le Creuset, rush on over to BigKitchen and check out all that they have to offer! Start small, as their collection can quickly add up. But in the long run, it’s worth every penny, as it’s probably the last one you will ever need to buy. Call it an investment when you are justifying it to your spouse. ;)

Or try your luck at winning one of your own!

  44. I have wanted a Le Creuset piece for so long. I liked many of the products on the website, but was drawn to the skimmer tool as I need one of those. I did all of the things for extra points except tweet about the giveaway and heart the store on Twitter. I couldn’t find the heart to click on the page it took me to, so I followed them instead. New to Twitter, can you tell?

  45. This is my dream cookware from BigKitchen: Le Creuset Cobalt Enameled Cast Iron Bouillabaisse Pot, 7.5 Quart !!!
