Le Creuset Heart Casserole Recipes and a Giveaway

Le Creuset: Fig and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicke Breasts

There’s nothing more exciting than getting the opportunity to work with a brand that you truly, truly love. I got my first Le Creuset piece back in 2008 when I cashed in for an early birthday present. I got it specifically to bake bread, but it is easily one of the most used pieces in our kitchen.

So needless to say when Le Creuset contacted me about developing a few recipes to help promote some of their specialty pieces, well, I did a little happy dance. And then I got cooking.

And just in time for Valentine’s day, this adorable little heart casserole is perfect for a dinner for two, like this recipe for Fig and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts featured on the Le Creuset website. Or even a romantic dessert, like the Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Port Sauce shown below. Because it’s such a versatile piece you can use it to sear, simmer, bake, braise, boil, or brown.

Le Creuset: Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sauce

Cake in a Le Creuset… who would have thought?

But even more exciting than these delicious recipes… Le Creuset is offering up a Heart Casserole to one lucky L&OO reader! You know you want one.

The winner will receive this gorgeous Heart Casserole in the color of their choice (Cassis or Red), valued at $150. Do note that the red is currently back-ordered for 1-2 months, but if that’s the color your heart desires, just ask and you shall receive (as soon as it’s back in stock).

So, what are you waiting for?

Giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!

Congratulations to Amy, comment #298, who was randomly selected as the winner of this gorgeous casserole!
