3 years and 500 recipes. Holy cow. 3 years. 500 recipes. That’s a lot of time. That is a lot of food. But let me let you in on a little secret, I have loved every minute of it. I have loved trying recipes. I have loved failing at recipes and trying until I get them right. I have loved shopping for new ingredients. I have loved exploring this passion that I have had ever since I microwaved my first batch of meatballs when I was 10 years old. And above all I have loved sharing my life with you all. And I have loved you sharing bits of yours with me. To show you how much I appreciate you all being here and reading the blog, I am celebrating this blogaversary with a little giveaway.
I decided the best way to celebrate and to say thank you for being there was to give away one of my favorite kitchen items: A 3.5 qt Le Creuset Round French Oven. It’s enameled cast iron. It’s oven and stove top safe. And is really easy to clean. I simply adore mine that Ryan gave me as a birthday present a couple of years ago. I use it as often as I can. It works great for soups, deep frying, stews, chilis , roasts and spaghetti sauce. Basically it’s perfect for the comfort food season that just started.
In addition to being helpful and practical in the kitchen, I love my Le Creuset because it is just so pretty. No matter what color, they all just add a certain pop to your kitchen aresnal. And we all know that that is the most important thing right? For this giveaway I decided to go with the color that caught my eye as soon as I walked into Mrs. Cook’s, Fennel. It’s green. It’s luscious and I wouldn’t blame you if you won it and left it on your counter, just to stare at it. I mean really. It is that pretty.
I am doing a lot of talking up of Le Creuset here but it’s important that you know the people at Le Creuset don’t know me. I’ve chosen to purchase and give this away because I want to.
Unlike previous giveaways, you’ve got two chances to win. For one entry simply leave a comment in the comments section of this post telling me what your favorite comfort food is. For the second entry leave a comment telling me your favorite comfort food on the Life’s Ambrosia Facebook page. I’ll pick the winner at random. Good luck! And again, thank you so much for reading and I look forward to many more years and many more recipes.
