I love my two huge Cathrineholm Dutch ovens. Stovetop, oven, braising, roasting, you name it. Scored them on eBay and secretly wish I could get a third. And we just got a Cuisinart Green Gourmet 12-inch wok pan for which I have high stir-fry hopes.

I have a red le creuset pot that I love, that I didn't really want.
I thought they were too heavy ( I still do) but my Mom ignored me and got me one for my birthday.
See, that's a great mom.

I love my dutch oven but honestly the thing I use the most is my stainless steel, deep saute pan. I cook in it for pretty much every meal.

I have an oval, kiwi-colored Le Creuset dutch oven that I cook just about anything in, if I can. It makes anything feel fancy. My most frequent is pantry/fridge soup using the random ingredients I have on hand on those nights when I need dinner but didn't make it to the grocery store. It always turns out delicious and with a glass of wine, I almost feel French.

We have an AWESOME dutch oven that my in-laws got us as an anniversary present. It's Lodge – in crazy ass 70s brown (though it was gifted in 2008), and costs WAY less then the Le Creuset version.

I cook EVERYTHING in the damn thing. Braises? Check. Soup? Check. Tacos? Why the hell not! Enameled cast iron is the best thing in the world for my ancient cranky apartment electric stovetop. I will never go back to caramelizing onions in a skillet.

Great cook book! I'm always looking for ways to simplify dinner time. My dutch oven and crock pot get the most use when it comes to one pot meals.

My go to meal is Salsa Chicken in the Crock Pot, you can eat it many different ways, and it is super simple to make.

my got to pot has to be my crock pot too! Especially when I cook beef…just falls right of the bone!

My favorite one pot meal is salsa chicken.
Put chicken, salsa, black beans, corn in crock pot on high. About 30 mins. before you serve it ad a block of cream cheese on top until melted. = delicious!

I love my 12 inch all clad stainless saute pan. It's not as heavy as the 14 inch but it's big enough to make a one pan family meal for 4. I usally get the pan just below smoking point, sear my meat then throw in my seasonal veggies and sqeeze in fresh lemon to deglaze. Turn the pan down as low as it can go, while flipping everything around and put a lid on it and let it cook through the remaing time. It cleans up perfect everytime. I love it. It is my work horse!

Let's see…along with my Corningware Light dish, I also love my William Sonoma Cast Iron Skillet. It was a wedding gift and makes killer pineapple upsidedown cakes.

I am in love with my found at a garage sale cast iron skillet! I cook everything in it! Although my dream of having a Le Crueset casserole dish is still running rampant. If there was nothing to dream about, life would be boring, right?!

My go-to pot (to the point that it usually just sits out on my stovetop, even when clean) is my Le Creuset oval French oven. It has me pining for a skillet and braiser too!

I don't know what it is but it's like a wok/lg. sautepan. I love it! I can do just about anything in it but boil water for spaghetti. stirfry is our favorite in it. the thing i don't like about it is it has all these little holes on the inside bottom and makes it hard to clean.

Mine would have to be our rich sausage and potato soup. Yum! Just made in a boring old pot because I don't have a Le Creuset :(

It's definitely my crockpot. I've got one of those programmable 6 quart Rivals, and it's never let me down. We use it once or twice a week.

Maybe if I mention "Le Creuset" as my absolute favorite best ever French oven enough times, a new piece of their cookware will magically appear at my front door. No? You don't think so? Well, I can dream. It is Spring, afterall – the season of hope and whatnot. :)

I love my dutch oven and pretty much decided that there is no other way to cook except with serious cast iron and an oven. Unfortunately since I've been pregnant (halfway done), the most action my dutch oven has received is from my husband cooking brats in beer so some inspiration is needed at this point.

My favorite skillet in my kitchen is my cast iron skillet because it's so easy to clean. Just give it a scrub with water and you're done!

I love my Le Creuset French Oven in Cobalt. I use it for pot roast and stuffed peppers. Unfortunately, I have no idea what else to use it for and this cookbook could really get me using it more.

For my wedding, one of my Mom's "recipe group" friends got me a deep cast iron skillet. It's not the most used dish in the house (let's be honest, that would be the microwave turn table), but it is my gourmet cooking pan. My hubby knows when that dish is out we're eating something really good.

Well, the only one I have is my crockpot if that counts for anything. I do love it though. Lots of great things I can make in it. My favorite is a white chicken chili recipe that my friend shared with me.

This is one of those giveaways where if I can't win it, I'll have to buy it!

When I'm being super lazy, I stick a rotisserie chicken with some veggies (carrots, potatoes, whatever I have on hand), some garlic and some rosemary into a dutch oven my dad brought from Poland. :) Yum! Really makes it extra awesome. Super cheap and super fast.

I'm thinking of write an Ode to My French Oven. It would start something like… "Le Creuset, how do I love thee… let me count the ways."

My favorite one dish dinner is Pritikin chili. It's fast and easy to make, and it's even low fat :)! It's made with ground turkey, lots of spices, beans and vegetables. Even my kids will eat it and they are picky. It's amazing how flavorful it is; and it's all made in one big pot.

On lazy nights, I love to make my own creation…corn bread pork chops. Mix up a box of Jiffy corn bread mix and pour it over pork chops in my stoneware baking dish and cook until the pork is done. It's main course and side all together. And bonus, my family all loves it.
