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.
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).

Oops. forgot to answer the question. First, I would make baked rice, impossible to make lovely unless in the right cookware! x

I’d make some decadent baked Mac and cheese!
A veggie Moroccan tagine for two – perfect portion in a super cute container!
I love Le Creuset! This dish would play the perfect host for a romantic dinner with my fiancé. I’d probably roast some pork loin (our favorite) over root vegetables, and use my mini cocotte to make a gooey chocolate dessert.
I would make homemade Mac and Cheese with Bacon and tomato. YUM! I just love le creuset!
I want one! I would braise lamb chops in a spicy tomato sauce inside of it.
I would make lightened up chicken pot pie for valentines day…and everyday for my husband and kiddos!
I would have to try the Fig and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts recipe. It looks so amazing.

I would make a German apple pancake for Valentine’s Day morning to share with my husband. Yummmm!
The cake must be delicious. It actually reminded me of the gift I’m gonna give to my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. I’ve made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school here in Vancouver – cooking classes for couples and your recipe will most certainly be among the first ones we’ll try together. So it fits in perfectly with my romantic plans. :)
That beautiful flourless chocolate cake. Looks yummy!
I would make baked macaroni and cheese. These are too cute for words!
