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!
