Le Creuset Giveaway and Begging for Twitter Friends

Post image for Le Creuset Giveaway and Begging for Twitter Friends

by Carol Kicinski on October 27, 2009

Holiday season is right around the corner. How did this happen? It seems like just 5 minutes ago we were celebrating New Years! I wonder if this is a sign of aging and my approaching decrepitude. I remember as a child it took SOOOO long for Christmas to come, now I blink my eyes on Valentine’s Day and wham! It’s Thanksgiving.

Well despite my rapidly advancing years, I am looking forward to family and decorations and of course, fabulous gluten-free food.

Seems like there are never enough baking dishes, serving platters and casseroles for the big feasts. That’s why I am so pleased to announce my next give away.

The really nice folks at Accent Furniture Direct (which is a great site with all sorts of cool stuff at great prices) have offered to give one of my lucky blog readers a fab Le Creuset 4 quart round Casserole dish with lid in white (yes, Le Creuset has all those fancy colors but let’s face it – white goes with everything, right?)

That’s right Le Creuset!

Covered casserole!

Just in time for the holidays! How cool is that?

I have a mad crush on Le Creuset cookware. It’s heavy and beautiful and lasts forever.

There’s a little catch here, however. I am pimping myself out and basically, I am going to bride you to follow me on twitter. I know, kind of pathetic but if twitter is like high school then I am like the new kid who sits alone in the cafeteria. Oh man, doesn’t that bring a tear to your eye?

So dry your eyes, leave a comment below letting me know that you are following me on twitter by midnight November 3rd and then let’s just all put this embarrassing plea for friendship behind us!

I will draw a winner randomly on November 4th. Good luck and thanks (sob) for your help in making me feel less like a twitter dweeb.

Today was a big gluten free day for me … I had my first gluten free hamburger bun (had been having them without buns since I found out I can't eat gluten), and I brought lunch to the office offsite because I knew the only option would be sandwiches.

following you–@salty_birdie. Who says you can't win friends (or Twitter followers?) :)


laurabosak October 28, 2009 at 8:40 am

I signed up for a birthday reminder service, so I get email reminders, like when it's 30 days before Hubs' step-mom's birthday. I got a reminder about Thanksgiving in 30 days. HOW IS THIS BLOODY POSSIBLE? I haven't made the kid's Halloween costume, yet.

I'm now following you on Twitter, mostly because I need a dish to serve Trader Joe's GF Penne (sauted in olive oil w/ kosher salt & pecorino romano). The in-laws are coming for the week at Thanksgiving.


@busymomto5 October 28, 2009 at 8:48 am

i am following you :)


Whitney October 28, 2009 at 8:49 am

I am soooooo following you on Twitter. But I am also loving your blog, even though I don't "have" to be gluten-free, there is no reason not to ignore your awesome sounding recipes!

And I will be RT-ing your tweets about this blatant attempt to garner followers. :)



Nancy C October 28, 2009 at 10:09 am

OK, I am easy…I'm following.
Your blog is great. I have been GF for six months now and feel SOOOO much better. Blogs like yours are so helpful!


Margaret October 28, 2009 at 11:54 am

I think I found your blog through finding you on Twitter, actually! :) (Sporadic_hail)

That casserole would make a sweet addition to my very tiny collection of Le Creuset!


LStand October 28, 2009 at 12:06 pm

Im following you on twitter! Follow me too so we can share GFree tips :)


Sherazada October 28, 2009 at 12:39 pm

I just signed up for twitter and i'm following you now!!!!! I'll make sure my other gf friends add you as well. Unfortunately, I don't own anything Le Creuset (my mother has a huge collection) but I'm hoping some day soon I will, now that I have my own gf kitchen! :)

Like your philosophy – similar to my view of GF living – "So what? As long as I have garbanzos and sweet potatoes and chard and…" @earthtoneone


sandra November 1, 2009 at 9:38 am

I don't even have a bashed one! I follow your blog. I am new to twitter and this seems like a real good way to check it out. (and see what my daughter is up to).

I'm following you. My birthday's in November too, so if you would like to wish me an early happy birthday with this little gift, I'd be SUCH a happy girl!

Oh, and I, too, am a newbie to Twitter:) I rely on my more twitter-versed friends to help me along.


Dr. Jean Layton November 2, 2009 at 3:57 pm

Got to admit, it is fun to have followers. I created a gluten free twitter list, feel free to follow those folks. I have followed you on Twitter today. I find when I follow someone, most will follow back.
Now I would really love a new Le Cruset to make my bread in so please….


Stephanie in Idaho November 2, 2009 at 8:12 pm

Love Le Creuset! WOO HOO! Pick ME!


Stephanie in Idaho November 2, 2009 at 8:14 pm

The Hip Hostess November 4, 2009 at 6:28 am

My MIL is French and has quite a collection of Le Creuset. I'm convinced it's the secret to her fabulous cooking all these years. Of course she has all the bright colors, but I'm loving this classic white.
Follow you on Twitter, will pitch your follower campaign!

Amy November 4, 2009 at 7:04 am

Wow, I am so glad that you are "begging for twitter friends" because that is how I found your blog – somebody tweeted about your contest. I am in LOVE with your blog. Your food looks amazing and your photography is gorgeous! And, although it was a little hard to discern from the Oct. 5 post (haha), YOU HAVE A COOKBOOK?? I am going to need it. And I'd definitely take that gorgeous white Le Creuset too, if you want to give it to me (now following…)

Thank you for the awesome & generous giveaway!


kaycee November 4, 2009 at 7:05 am

Not sure if I am too late for the drawing but I am following you on twitter..kclaborn

HeatherinSF November 4, 2009 at 8:33 pm

I confess, I'm a Le Creuset addict, mostly from thrift stores and garage sales. My sister was going to give me one Christmas but my mom told her I already had the heart shaped pot. Which of course I don't!!! I'm working on forgiveness… :-) Hope I'm not too late for the contest but I'm glad I discovered your blog and I'm following you on Twitter, @HeatherHAL there.


Domenique March 9, 2015 at 2:51 pm

I’m following! :)
