Congratulations, Rachael and Shoshana! Be sure to reply to the email you’ve been sent, and your new Le Creuset items will be shipped out to you!

I am so excited for today’s giveaway because my Le Creuset Dutch oven (sometimes also referred to as a French oven) has become attached to my hip ever since I got it 5+ years ago. It was my biggest kitchen purchase to date at the time, and I had been salivating over one for ages. I finally broke down and bought one, and I’ve never looked back. I bought the 7¼-quart size in cherry red and promptly named it “Big Red”. I use it for everything and anything in the kitchen – big pots of soup, stew, chili and spaghetti sauce… braising meat… frying doughnuts… boiling bagels. You name it, and I’ve most likely used my Dutch oven to do it. Needless to say, I am thrilled to be giving away TWO Le Creuset items today! Read below for the details and how to enter to win…

### GIVEAWAY DETAILS

- One “grand prize” winner will receive a 7¼-quart Le Creuset Round French Oven in the color of his/her choosing.

HollyonDecember 12, 2012at7:59 amThank you for providing us with such fabulous and well tested recipes. I can always count on your site for a delicious treat! My favorite christmas cookie has to be a nut crescent, traditionally the walnut crescent, it wouldn’t be christmas without those melt in your mouth delights!

HeatheronDecember 12, 2012at8:00 amFavorite Christmas cookie….that’s tough. I do all the baking at Christmas (for mine and hubby’s family) so there are always a ton of cookies available. Right now I would have to say it’s a recipe that utilizes both dark and white chocolate chips. They are so good!
