{CLOSED} April Giveaway - Win a Burst of Sunshine!

** this giveaway is closed - thank you for your participation! **



I'm bringing this April giveaway a tad early.  We've all been getting bogged down by some wet weather so I wanted to bring a little sunshine into your lives!  This month, our giveaway sponsor is CSN Stores.  CSN Stores is an online U.S. retailer of home and office goods - they have over 200 sites where you can find anything from kids bedding to fitness equipment  to outdoor barbecues!

I'm so excited that this month CSN Stores is partnering with me to giveaway a Le Creuset 12-ounce Petite Oval Casserole dish in Dijon (2" H x 6.75" W x 4" D):


According to CSN Stores,
This Petite Oval Casserole is the perfect size for accenting a table with dips, condiments, cheeses, salsas, and aioli. The lid makes it practical for heating up sauces in the microwave or keeping snacks fresh. You can bake charming individual portionswhile entertaining guests. Crafted from high-quality durable stoneware, this piece will not chip, scratch, or stain. The Le Creuset Petite Oval Casserole is a stylish and versatile kitchen essential! 
Who wouldn't love to have this burst of yellow sunshine in their kitchen?? You can enter up to FIVE times by doing any or all of the following (but make sure you leave a separate comment for each entry!).  Here's how you can win it:

3. Add my blog to your blogroll and leave a comment here including a link!
4. Leave a comment telling me (1) Do you currently own any Le Creuset cookware? (2) If so, what's your favorite Le Creuset item you own?
5. What's your favorite warm-weather/spring dish to fix?

Open to residents of U.S. and Canada only. One winner will be chosen randomly on Friday, April 2nd at 9pm PDT.  Please make sure you include your email address in your entry OR have your email visible in your blogger profile.

My favorite warm weather/spring dish? HMM. That's a tough one.

I love to grill burgers in warm weather, with fresh slices of german johnson tomatoes from the garden, lettuce from the garden with a side of potato salad. That just screams spring to me because I can never wait for the first pretty day to break out the charcoal!

My favorite warm/spring-weather dish to cook is a pearled barley salad with mozzarella, tomatos and balsamic vinegar. You chill it and it's so tasty!! I prepare it ahead of time and we always have it Sunday afternoons after churh!

Marisa said...

Hello! I have no Le Creuset products but I would love one! My most recent blog post, Tilapia baked in Parchment Paper is definitely a go-to spring dish!

Stacie said...

Stacie said...

I do own one Le Creuset pot! A wonderful red oval dutch oven! I use it for everything. If I knew then what I know now, I would have registered for a few of them when I got married!

Stacie said...

It is so funny! You can tell when the weather is changing because my menu changes drastically! No more soups and casseroles (well not as many) it's on to the salads and sandwhiches and all things grilled. I have a few faves. Tomorrow night we will be having Black and Blue Spinach Salad (steak, blue cheese, candied nuts, fruits & veggies, and spinach with a light homemade vinaigrette dressing)! Welcome spring! Even if you are still a bit cold and wet!
