Giveaway: Le Creuset Indoor Grill Pan! [Closed]

Posted by on Saturday Oct 9th, 2010 | Print

Win this Le Creuset Square Skillet Grill Pan!

We’ve been coping with the change of seasons here at BGSK.

Our light summer beach bags won’t cut it anymore when toting home huge gourds from the farmers’ market, and we have to remember our ever-cozy scarves and ever-trendy fall jackets when leaving our apartments to go there.

We may not lament the disappearance of corn and zucchini after a summer-long OD, but one thing we will miss is the grill we used to char them.

Thanks to our friends at Le Creuset, we’ll be taking our no-fuss grilling habits indoors this fall, and one lucky reader will receive the same small kitchen luxury!

In order to win this snazzy new grill pan, in the chic autumn color cassis, you must complete the following:

  • Become a subscriber to our newsletter. (we’ll check!!)
  • Leave a comment below and tell us about your favorite fall dish.
  • (Optional) Tweet about this contest @BGSK @LeCreuset and receive an extra entry!

We’ll be busy gobbling up these Grilled Mushroom Cheddar Melts in the meantime, and we’ll announce the randomly selected winner next week!

From our kitchen, grilling indoors in grandpa sweaters, to yours,

Cara & Phoebe, THE QUARTER-LIFE COOKS

    Oh, that grill pan is so pretty! I love to make roasted butternut squash with browned butter and sage over gnocchi in the fall – it’s simple and so good. :)

  • Becky

    Love it! My favorite fall dish is either caramel apple pork chops or apple tarte tatin! :)

  • kendall

    My favorite fall dish apple crisp!

  • lbh

    Tried twice to register for your newsletter…I would love it! But, haven’t received a confirmation email in return, yet. I did tweet about the contest, though! My favorite fall dish are pumpking muffins.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=614964520 Donna Wand

      Pumpkin muffins? Sounds delicious!

  • Kate

    Butternut squash risotto with blue cheese, sage, and pecans is my fall favorite.

    • Frankie

      Risotto with nuts? What a fab idea!

  • Becca

    It would be impossible to choose an all-time favorite fall dish, but so far this year the blue ribbon is going to a pumpkin-black bean soup. So exciting to see the true savory side of pumpkin after you take away the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves!

    • http://www.biggirlssmallkitchen.com/ BGSK

      How intriguing! Can u describe this? Is it just your standard black bean soup with chunks of pumpkin? Or a pumpkin puree? Great idea!

  • K_bakka

    I love apple crisp- the perfect fall breakfast or desert

  • http://www.bakingforgood.com Emily

    The pan is beautiful!

    I have two favorite fall dishes that I love to make:
    Spaghetti Squash and Swiss Chard Gratin (http://bakingforgood.tumblr.com/post/239292987/healthy-and-delicious-spaghetti-squash-gratin)

    And this butternut and acorn squash soup (I’ve tried a zillion and this one’s the best!): http://bakingforgood.tumblr.com/post/220150804/the-squash-soup-recipe-to-squash-all-others

  • Lauren

    Love the color! One of my favorite fall dishes is sausage risotto with mushrooms!

  • Kate

    Anything pumpkin (or squash)!! Pumpkin rissotto, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin martinis (hey, I work at a bar!), butternut squash soup, pumpkin seeds, and of course, pumpkin pie!!

  • Sophia

    Mmmmm my favorite fall recipe would have to be roasted pumpkin soup.

  • Maureen

    I am a follower with a subscription.
    I love a dish that I make usually between October and the beginning of December and it is a dessert called Pumpkin Crisp. It takes the place of pumpkin pie. Just wonderful. I also love garlic mashed potatoes.

  • Kaylamundy

    I have been drooling over Le Creuset! My favorite fall dish is any type of soup-it’s wonderful in New York at this time of year. I also love apple recipes-I just made an amazing apple cake yesterday-yum!

    kaylamundy@gmail.com

  • Steph

    Thick tomato soup with a touch of cream…the best way to transition out of gazpacho OD.!

  • JK

    I love baked spaghetti squash pie! The squash makes the crust with tomato sauce (homemade!) with Italian sausage in the middle and cheese on top.

    • http://www.biggirlssmallkitchen.com/ BGSK

      Would LOVE this recipe. Sounds awesome.

      • JK

        No real recipe. I just cook the spaghetti squash ( micro or oven) then shred it. I usually add salt and pepper (an egg and Parmesan cheese if I’m not watching calories) Press into pie pan as a crust. Top with tomato sauce and Italian sausage (cooked) or seasoned ground turkey. Top with Mozzarella and bake until bubbly.

  • Linda

    What a beautiful grill.

    My favorite fall dish is homemade pumpkin empanadas, followed by pumpkin pie, and anything else with pumpkin in it.

    I am now a subscriber! Thanks!

It is hard to decide but I would have to say that my favorite fall dish is taco soup with cornbread muffins, it is so delicious and great for a cozy fall evening!

  • Katya

    Most of my favorite fall dishes involve dutch ovens or udon noodles, but I’m sure I could think of something nice to do with a purple grill pan…eggplant?

  • Jopesopsop

    Chili! I have a big pot of it on the stove now!

  • http://measuringspoonsandmixingbowls.blogspot.com/ Jen

    I loove fall flavors! It makes up for the abrupt weather change. I don’t think I can pick just one favorite, but I will eat anything that has pumpkin in it!

    Oh and I subscribe to your newsletter.

  • Sburton8a

    pumpkin anything…soup, custard, butter, pie, muffins, ale, roasted with garlic, seeds…and my fav: pumpkin ice cream!

  • Sara

    I’m on your mailing list!

    Aaand my favorite fall dish = chili. Or roasted squash. Or pumpkin pie.

    I have a hard time choosing, obviously.

  • Frankie

    I like to make a big stew with all the fall root vegetables, tomato base, and then add parsley sage rosemary and thyme – yeah like the song!

  • Tilaturtle

    My new favorite dish that I learned about during the fall, so I guess that makes it also my favorite fall dish, is a pear and brie grill cheese sandwich on rye bread. Yum!

  • Summer Lee

    I am a newsletter subscriber!!

    I love anything and everything pumpkin! I also love the start of soup season!! And, for some reason, fall is usually the only time of year my family makes our homemade noodles! mmmmmm fall!!

  • Jenni

    My favorite fall dish is butternut squash! Mmmmm with brown sugar and butter ONLY. Salivating as we speak…

    (Yay! 3 entries for me!)

  • Robin T.

    Pumpkin risotto

    pumpkin soup, with homemade bread! or pumpkin anything, really. love your blog!

  • Vanessa

    That would be perfect for me to grill this new apple and cinnamon recipe I wanted to try but boo – I don’t have a pretty grill pan much like the one above! How pretty.

    In response to your question, my favorite Autumn dish would have to be lasagna. Something “cozy” to accommodate the chill in the air as the seasons change…

  • Lisa

    My favorite fall dish would have to be anything with butternut squash or pumpkin pie.

    Hands down, my favorite fall dish (so-to-speak) is my home made chunky chicken noodle soup and home made break. So hearty and warm.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=614964520 Donna Wand

      It’s supposed to say home made bread* sorry.

  • Brenda

    Just subscribed last week after seeing one of your photos on foodgawker. My favorite fall dish has to be pumpkin anything – but specifically pumpkin ravioli in brown butter with sage!

  • Loren Vitello

    How fabulous! I’ve been looking for one of these. I would make a proscuitto and fig panini!

  • DMC

    Ohhh please! I just got my first Le Creuset Pan and I am in love. Alas, it was purchased with “points”– I can’t afford these things otherwise!

  • Cecilee

    I love food, so an all time favorite is hard to name, for any season.
    But… I’m looking forward to tomato soup and grilled cheese!
    All different types of cheese and bread and tomato soup from a can to something I make on my own!

  • http://alotoflayers.blogspot.com/2010/10/ode-to-cassoulet.html The Onion

    I am in love with my La Creuset French oven, and was just singing its praises last week when I made a ludicrously good pot roast with red potatoes, carrots and even noodles! (who can resist starch at a time like this?) in a savory tomato beef broth. You just can’t beat a classic fall dish like a hearty roast when the leaves are falling and you have to close the windows in the late afternoon when the temperature drops. I seriously need to lay off the starch. Please award me this lovely grill pan so I can branch out. :-)

  • Hourlytips

    My first time here. The title of this blog makes me think of “I’m a big big girl, in a big big world…”

  • Maria

    Love the Le Creuset pan! My favorite fall dish is a rice salad. Rice cooked in veg broth, roasted butternut squash, onion, celery, cilantro and a soy/cumin dressing. Yum!!

  • Anna L

    Oh so many delicious fall dishes, but my favorite is probably the one I created! A hearty white bean and kale soup that does wonders on a brisk fall day :)

    • Frankie

      Anna L, would love that recipe!

  • Chelsea

    This would be so great for my tiny apartment! I like pumpkin blondies with cinnamon cream cheese frosting ;)

  • Burgett8

    My favorite fall food is any type of macaroni and cheese dish!!!!

  • Jen

    I love that pan! My favorite fall dish is pumpkin chip cookies. Or maybe chicken pot pie. Or turkey soup with homemade bread! Oh, there’s so many!

  • http://twitter.com/rusthawk Rusty Hawk

    My favorite fall dish is a simmering pot of gumbo.

    I’m subscribed to your email. Thanks!

  • http://losingitbigtimeinaz.blogspot.com/ Reneasiegl

    It may not be the healthiest but mine has to be..Pumpkin Cheescake. It is rich and decedent and I always start making it arounf mid October. I am eating healthy so looking for a new healthier version !

    anything baked with PUMPKIN!! pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie, muffins, cookies ,cake !!

  • Sean

    My favorite dish isn’t traditionally a fall dish; I love my father’s recipe for chili (a meet-in-between of traditional chili and Cincinnati-style chili). It warms you more than a soup, and somehow always managed to appear in our bowls when the leaves changed colors.

  • Sara Chidester

    Love anything with Apples and cinnamon in the fall- delish!

  • Tallyliz

    Fall is my favorite! I love home-made Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, loaded with roasted veggies and garlic. Soooooooo good. :)

  • CDV

    pumpkin & butternutsquash soup!

  • Just One Femme’s Story

    It is only now that I truly value the importance of not only buying quality cookware but caring for them so that they last. I’ve always bought decent quality pots, pans and gadgets but never spent a lot of money for any one item. I have learned three things from living in shelters
    1) NO ONE teaches most of today’s women how to cook quality meals using items that do not always come from a can.
    2) No one has taught today’s women how to care for pots & pans so they last
    3) No one has told today’s women that quality matters just as much in cookware as it does in men.

    I love to cook but find it difficult to cook using damaged pans and women who prefer canned and quick over fresh and more than 10 minutes to be a finished meal. :(

  • Betty Bake Blog

    i love potatoe bake – and the grill pan is gorgeous :)

  • Heather

    I love pumpkin desserts, but pumpkin pie is my favorite!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=694471975 Jennifer Kelly

    Butternut squash rissoto is a house favorite! In FL, there isn’t too much of a season change, but I change what I cook depending on the season..mostly to make it feel like fall!

  • Leighannsmi

    Would love this grill pan! Favorite fall dish of the moment– the gluten free carrot cake I made for my roommate’s birthday yesterday. But generally, anything with butternut squash!

  • Callie Barbee

    I love a good hearty bowl of chili. Mmmm….
    On the sweet side I enjoy apple crisp or caramel apples…

  • Bigfamily8

    I first thought that grill pan was made from something that I wouldn’t want to cook with, but it’s cast iron. Thanks for the giveaway. I’m a subscriber.I’d make something with the butternut squash I have.

  • MandyB

    Harvest Bisque with acorn squash and apple, pumpkin Carmel custard, Marrakesh vegetable curry with eggplant, sweet potatoes, squash, peppers…..Hungarian Goulash with spaetzle (but that is my year round fav!)

  • Kelsey Spickes

    I love rich, hearty soups, especially after not being able to eat them all summer long. One that’s particularly fall-appropriate (and delicious!) is Butternut and Acorn Squash soup with Thyme. So simple, but so wonderful!

    P.S. I also tried to sign up for the newsletter but never received a conformation email. Hopefully it still worked!

  • http://alittlechocolate.tumblr.com Lia

    i am a 20 something that recently moved to her own apartment so, suffice to say, i need pots and pans !! and this le creuset pan would be perfect for meeee ! PS – this job is amazing and i love it !

    also, forgot to include my favorite fall dish — would definitely have to say that an apple pie is my favorite fall dish !! :)

  • PuffDaddyJ

    Grilled fish. Bringing my new grilling skills in from the cold.

  • kate

    I think my favorite fall dish (and winter) is beef stew. There is nothing like the smell of it cooking in a slow cooker after a long day, and that first bite of falling apart beef is to die for. It may also be my favorite fall dish because today is the first real day it has felt like fall for me, and my mom made beef stew this morning, so it may just be on my mind!

  • Anonymous

    My favorite fall dish is apple pie with a lattice crust. I’ve made it every Thanksgiving since I was a kid.

  • Kehester

    I’m getting married in a few months, and I know my fiancé would love me to grill him some burgers in this pan!! My favorite fall dish is definitely pumpkin pie. Every time Thanksgiving rolls around my mouth starts watering for this delicious dessert!

  • Sara

    With the last of the corn at the farmer’s market, I like to make corn soup. All I do is cut the kernels off the corn, boil the cobs in a pot of water with a potato and half the kernels, remove the cobs, puree, and then cook with the remaining corn.

    And, with the purple plums, I love to make a plum crisp.

  • Kasey

    I just made sausage-stuffed spaghetti squash that was so good! It was so easy too and has now become one of my favorite fall dishes.

  • SueB57

    Favorite Fall dish…how to pick one?? It would have to be a hearty beef stew…browning the beef before letting it simmer for hours…add veggies and beans…yum!

  • Amy

    living in florida, fall won’t be here for a while, but my favorite ‘fall’ food is apple butter. Though, I confess, I’m happy to eat it all year round!

  • Frooz

    Oh me oh my!! That grill pan would be so dope to inside grill Persian koobideh kabob. Ground meat with turmeric, saffron, onions and loooove. Along with it gorgeous saffron rice and the ever so lovely Ghormeh sabzi, the Iranian national dish. A stew of parsley, leek, fenugreek, spinach, coriander, kidney beans, red onions, chives and dehydrated limes with yummy lamb.

    Big girls, small kitchen has started my cooking career. I’ve made so many of your recipes!

    Love you girls!!
    LOVE, FROOZIE!

    (p.s. pick me. i won’t let you down!)

  • Faon

    spiced crab apples! now’s the time of year to pick them (at least in AK — they’ve sweetened with cooler nights) and it’s easy… plus, how often can you use red hots in a recipe? I’m making a batch right now, canning them, and stashing them for holiday gifts. Thanks for the comment threads of more fall time cooking ideas, guys!

  • dm5885

    Squash Soup:
    Wash and trim squash. Slice, reserving 8 very thin slices for garnish. In a large saucepan, melt butter; gently saute onion and lemon. Sprinkle with flour and cook slowly, stirring, until flour is abs…orbed. Add chicken broth gradually, then sliced squash, salt and pepper. Simmer for 1 hour. Puree soup in blender or food processor. Add nutmeg. To heat, stir in cream with a wire whisk and cook over low heat. Do not allow to boil. Garnish cream of squash soup with reserved squash slices. Squash soup serves 8.

    1 1/2 pound(s) summer squash, I use basic yellow squash
    2 Tbsp butter
    1 medium onion(s)
    1/4 medium lemon(s)
    1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
    6 cube(s) chicken broth, dry cubes
    1 tsp table salt
    1/4 tsp white pepper
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1 cup(s) light cream

  • AmandaMarie

    When the seasons turn, my favorite fall meal is a pot of steaming clam chowder that heralds harvest time in all it’s glory. A thick stew of autumnal root vegetables, finely minced clams, and a fragrant bouquet of herbs that infuse the soup with something magical. Served with a loaf of crusty french bread, voila – the essence of autumn is found simmering on the stove in my kitchen.

  • http://littlekitchenontheprairie.blogspot.com/ Lorimorton

    My favourite fall dish….do I have to pick just one??? Apple Crisp!!!!! The crispy crunchy oatmealy topping, the crisp apples rendered sweet and sticky with the addition of brown sugar, honey and warming mix of fall spices such as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. The smell brings everyone down to the kitchen to await their first taste. Now only if I can get them to do the dishes as well!

  • Kat

    I would love a le Creuset skillet grill pan!

  • Emily

    ohhh anything with apples! sweet or savory–it doesn’t matter!

  • http://otm-inthegalley.blogspot.com/ SeattleDee

    Just finished a Fall favorite, oven-roasted Brussels sprouts & potatoes with bacon, finished with a toss in butter and lemon juice. With any luck I’ll have the leftovers all to myself for tomorrow’s lunch.
    Still waiting for your e-mail confirmation of my subscription.

    Just discovered it–caramelized leeks with pasta. Second runner up–a simple rustic apple pie.

    My favorite fall dish has to be Spinach, Mushroom and Swiss Chard Lasagna (tomato-product free!).

    Hello Cara & Phoebe! So excited to just find your website. My newest savory fall treats are pumpkin and feta muffins; although as many others have said ANYTHING pumpkin works for me: pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie and pumpkin smoothies, etc. My toes and fingers are crossed for that be-U-Tea-full grill pan. Cheers!

  • http://neverturndownacupcake.blogspot.com Kay

  • Ashley M

    I tried subscribing, but have no received the confirmation email yet. I will go back to check again. (I am also going to “tweet” about it.)

    My favorite all-time fall dish would be Green bean casserole.
    However, I just invented a new dish that in my opinion, and my husband’s, is pretty darn good. It is chicken fried pork chop with curry gravy with mashed potatoes.

  • Stephanie

    My favorite fall dish has to be butternut squash soup! A simple classic, but it always hits the spot. With lots of ginger, a touch of orange, and topped with spiced cream and toasted pumpkin seeds- heaven!

  • Lindsay

    I have 2 favorite fall dishes – simple roasted butternut squash with a little brown sugar and butter ( I love it so much I make it all year-round!) and stuffing – my mom’s homemade is the best!

  • Aimee

    Apple pie! But it must be completely homemade! I can’t stand storebought pie crusts, especially when it is so quick and easy to make your own.

  • Jessie Atl

    Spaghetti squash!

  • Pallavi

    Oh this dish is soo pretty! Soup is my favorite fall food!

    Favorite fall dish would have to be fresh steamed brussels sprouts! Seems crazy, but I do love the things and had never eaten “real” ones (i.e., never frozen) until about five years ago. What a difference!

  • Caitlyn

    Chili all the way! I’ve always been hooked on my mom’s turkey chili, but have recently become a fan of your veggie version.

  • http://www.theunemployedlibrarian.blogspot.com Elizabeth L.

    This is the first year I’ve been into fall cooking, so I don’t have a favorite fall dish yet. But I did make an excellent applesauce bread the other day with homemade applesauce. It’s great lightly toasted and spread with a little butter for breakfast.

    I already subscribe to your newsletter. :)

  • HillaryBeans

    i just made butternut squash with butter and brown sugar for the first time, and could not believe how delicious it was! but my all time favorite fall dish has to be fresh apple crisp. after a day of apple picking, i dont even mind all the peeling and slicing. its worth it!

  • Vannavhd

    Love Fall..I have so many favorites but I love roasted butternut squash lasagne!!

  • JDS

    Some people think that Southern California fall isn’t “real fall” but for me it’s still one of my favorite seasons because of the produce that’s in season. My favorite fall recipe is roasted acorn squash, gorgonzola, and arugala pizza. I like making individual sizes and grilling the dough! What a lovely use for a new grill pan right?? ;)

  • Laura

    Turkey & vegetable chili with a balsamic reduction drizzled over top. DELICIOUS.

  • Justdorkin

    growing up my mom use to make homeade chili and cinnimon rolls for the first snow of fall.

  • Binkie_Winkie

    I recently made some gluten/flour free sweet potato muffins that were to die for and tasted just like fall!

  • Bryan

    My favorite fall dish is anything with pumpkin or squash in it. I really enjoy butternut squash gnocchi sauteed in brown butter and sage.

  • Amanda

    My favorite fall dish is a nice, hearty beef stew. With red wine thrown in there, and big crusty toasted french bread alongside. YUM YUM!!

    I love autumn soups! My favorite is spicy peanut tofu soup, which is really suitable for any season, but especially yummy and comforting in Autumn. I also LOVE pumpkin and butternut squash soup, topped with a very lightly sweetened (made from scratch with patience and strong wrists) cinnamon whipped cream. Yum!! I’ll be making, and posting recipes, on my own website soon, of course. :) Happy Autumn!

  • Snholliday

    I’ve always wanted a grill pan! What a treat that would be~~ My favorite season is definitely fall and I love anything with sweet potatoes, particularly a dessert called sweet potato crunch!

  • Sharon

    Minestrone Soup is my favorite fall dish.

  • Lindsay

    Hot pot is my fall favourite, Japanese style in particular. There’s something lovely about family and friends cooking together at the table. Makes for a very easy cold-weather dinner party too!

  • Jill

    I am loving my version of a pizza that I discovered at Pizzeria Mozza in L.A.. It starts with Olive Oil and garlic, then Mozzarella and topped with Caramelized Onion, sliced Pear and Gorgonzola. To die for!

  • Kat

    Hello! I love your blog but I’ve never commented before. My favorite fall dish is definitely vegetarian black bean chili with a side of cornbread! (Also, I tried to subscribe to the newsletter but didn’t get the confirmation email in my inbox or in my spam filter. Any ideas?)

    What beautiful pan! My favorite fall dish is sweet potato casserole topped with a layer of pralines. A Thanksgiving table staple of my mother’s for years… Mmm!

  • Kari Halvorson

    i love squash soup, but for some reason i’m loving sandwiches this fall! i’m loving adding squash and making all sorts of tasty combinations of fall ingredients. they’d be delicious grilled, too! :)

  • http://belleonheels.blogspot.com sarah g

  • Lacey Carpenter13

    My favorite Fall dish is Apple Crisp! Yummm!

  • Smrtcookie83

    Hi! I just stumbled on your blog and love it! I was drawn in because I just used the bamboo picks from Trader Joe’s at my Bridal Shower last week. Being on Guam I miss Fall weather (I’m an East coaster here for my hubs for another year ) so one of my favorites to remind me of the season is Apple Pie…simple, easy and takes me right home where we would go apple picking. And really nothing beats the cinnamon smell filling the house while it cooks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=718300147 Kate Greenberg

    My all time favorite fall dish is Butternut Squash Soup with Cider Cream (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Butternut-Squash-Soup-with-Cider-Cream-15657) it is utterly to die for!!!!

  • Morgan

    I am all over spaghetti squash with…well…anything this fall. I can imagine it roasted, and then finished off with some herbs and lemon in that great grill pan!

  • Hannah

    I love anything that is made with apples. Especially after going to the apple orchard and picking them yourself!

  • lily

    grilled cheese sandwich with caramelized apples on ciabatta. no words i could use to describe it would do it justice.

  • CEH

    Easy. Pumpkin pie. I know that I can eat it (and often do eat it) all year round, but there is just something about buying a little pumpkin at the farmer’s market and making an unbelievable pumpkin pie for my family’s Thanksgiving. Best. Food. Ever.

  • Jcwegmann

    I always know that Fall has truly hit when my mom makes her vegetable beef soup… it’s so thick and hearty it’s almost a stew. Yum!

  • Munir Alam

    I would love to win this grill pan for my wife who loves cooking.My fave fall dish would be any soup to warm me up on those nice,chily days.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Allan.Douglas.Designs Allan Douglas

    Doesn’t your grandpa grouse at you for wearing his sweaters while cooking? OK, so I’m fashion-lame.

    I always look forward to fall because it is soup season. No one particular recipe, may favorites are 16 bean soup and fresh vegetable soup made with products of our own garden. The crock pot is great for these: set it up inthe morning and it’s ready to eat that evening. Make lots and enjoy it for several means; the flavor just improves with age (within reason of course!)

    The grill is no good for soup, but it would be great for grilling the late-season squash!
    Tweet, tweet!

  • Slalpern

    Turkey Chili!

  • Stephalmeda

    Just discovered your blog, love it! I enjoy cooking classic Fall dishes like squash soups and baking everything with apples, but my favorite thing to make in the Fall is a big crock pot of Texas Chili. Just made my first batch yesterday.

  • Christine Brown

    My favorite fall dish is apple pie!

  • Erin

    My favorite fall dish is a nice beef stew, and some fresh out of the oven tea biscuits to sop it up. Delish!

  • Lschoefer

    Barefoot Contessa butternut squash risotto- without a doubt the best fall dish ever!

  • Evan

    Love your blog!! And would LOVE the grill pan, I’m 21 and just starting to collect hardware for my (future) kitchen. One of my favorite dishes to make in fall is cream of tomato soup with aromatic herbs. So perfect to have it simmering on the stove on a chilly day.

  • Aubrey

    I like to think that I make and eat new and exciting recipes all the time. I do, but man do I LOVE grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. And I hate to admit, but sometimes yes, from a can. But I tried a recipe like this last year from a friend and its my new go to gourmet fall dish. http://www.thebitesizedblog.com/2010/10/06/roasted-tomato-soup-and-grilled-cheese/

  • Rema

    Autumnal root veggies, roasted in the oven with olive oil, sea salt, and fresh herbs! Carrots, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, onions, garlic… add some mushrooms and it’s even better!
    Love the color of the LeCreuset pan. I’m a new newsletter subscriber and tweeted about the contest! Pick me! :)

  • InternetCookingPrincess

    I’m totally late on the uptake, but I can’t resist a giveaway especially when it’s Le Creuset (cookware obsession) and in purple no less (color obsession)!! My favorite fall dish? Super slow cooked chili – that’s how we do things in Texas.

  • Mandy

    My favorite fall dish is pumpkin pie cake. Yum!

  • Erin

    I love roasting most root vegetables in the fall. But I must say that my favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes is to boil them and then mash them up with butter, a little honey and brown sugar! I’ll usually have these as a side dish with chicken, salmon, or crab legs!

  • http://www.consumedcooking.com Danielle M

    I love cooking in the fall! Anything pumpkin or apple is probably my favorite. I have a very simple and SO delicious apple cake that is definitely a go-to recipe!

    Love your blog!

  • Macyblakskey

    This would be an awesome addition to my new kitchen….I cook everyday and my favorite breakfest meal is french toast and bacon…this will cook that 4 sure

  • Sarah Fitzrandolph Brown

    Wow, what a popular comment chain! It’s hard for me to choose between my favorite fall breakfast, nibble and dinner.

    For breakfast, I’ve found myself making an autumnal oatmeal which consists of rolled oats prepared with 1/4 can of pumpkin puree, some almond milk, a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon, and topped with some nuts and brown sugar. I really think the almond milk makes it–giving it a light nutty flavor and keeping it relatively healthy.

    As an app/snack I’ve found myself savoring the last of summer and making a crostini using plum butter I purchased at the farmers market and some caramelized onions. Super easy and almost no mess.

    And… My fav seasonal supper has been cubed roasted butternut which I then sauté with a sage brown butter adding some fresh escarole at the end and placing atop fresh cut pasta from rafettos. This has been a real crowd pleaser and even I was surprised as to how well the escarole blended in with the other fall flavors.

    • http://www.biggirlssmallkitchen.com/ BGSK

      You rock. These all sound awesome.

  • Alisha

    All time favourite fall meal is Szechuan Carrot Soup with homemade Na’an Bread. Ohhh my goodness. Carrot-ty, peanutbuttery, sesame-ie … It’s filling, healthy and SO satisfying. I love love your blog!

  • Elliestrachan

    My favorite fall dish is a combination of sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and pork loin. All can be put in one casserole dish and baked for 45 min at 350. At the end you have a delicious and warm fall meal. Happy eating!

  • J-bird

    My favorite fall dish is pumpkin bisque. Followed very closely by stuffed pork roast rolled with sage stuffing. Yum!

  • Lauren

  • Jovi

    My favorite fall dish is my take on traditional TX chili… spicy, bold and oh, so meaty. With various chiles to give the spice depth and smokiness. And of course is MUST be served with a buttery side of cornbread. mmmm, i’m hungry!

  • Putupwithmeblog

    My favorite fall dish lately has been this butternut squash gratin. It’s super easy to make and tastes absolutely decadent. Enjoy! http://www.putupwithme.com/2010/10/butternut-squash-gratin.html

  • Niamh

    hmmmm for main course Grilled Sausages, sauted onions & red cabbage with mashed potatoes. For dessert Skillet Apple Crisp – Granny Smith & McIntosh apples, with a hint of cinnamon over buttery bread crumbs and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Yum! Le Creuset is a dream to cook with!

    Oooo! I DO love that purple Le Creuset pan :) Fall wouldn’t be Fall in my apartment without banana bread. Can’t wait to make a loaf this weekend!

  • http://www.glossglamourandgrace.blogspot.com Carolyn

    Love your newsletter – I look forward to it every Friday now to see what I should cook over the weekend! I have too many fave fall dishes. Probably chili and lasagna, but I also love most things with butternut squash or pumpkin in them…ravioli, gnocchi, risotto, muffins, lattes, etc… :) How can I choose?!

  • Liz Short

    I love to make soups when the weather turns cool. Here in Texas, a good pot of fresh ground Sirloin Chili with Roasted Hatch Chili Peppers hits the spot nicely. I have the chilis in the freezer from the summer’s harvest and I serve this up with some roasted corn corn bread. I use any leftover chili to make an enchilada sauce that’s awesome. Life is good. Enjoy y’all!

  • http://otm-inthegalley.blogspot.com/ SeattleDee

    Did I comment already? Whatever. This morning’s breakfast sandwich of Jarlsberg cheese, thinly sliced pears and mango chutney on my homemade lemon cherry peasant bread would have been even better on a grill pan… it was pretty tasty just using a fry pan!

  • julia

    Favorite fall dish is maple syrup-glazed roasted root vegetables!

  • Earthly Epicurean

    I love veal milanese with the last of the greenmarket tomatoes and arugula on top. Oh yum.

  • Pam

    My favorite fall dish is a dish my sicilian grandmother used to make. It’s called Jambota. Jambota is a mix of squash, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and eggs.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7OPD54DDCO27FFCAQQWJ5EGRPY Felecia

    I have to get me one of those grill pans – I’ve been thinking about getting one for a while now. Its on the Christmas list now. :)

  • Betsystover

    favorite fall dish is a grilled salmon and spinache salad with a slice of grilled butternut squash. Yum

  • Aebaraff

    My favorite fall dish is cornbread….I love it! I could eat the whole pan with a friend with some delicious tea with honey perfect for the oncoming cold weather! If only I had a pan or muffin tin to make it in.

  • Ciscoack

    Chili con carne or a vegetarian chili are my favorite fall recipes! I also love butternut squash soup in the fall.

  • Phyllis

    I am a Louisiana native and when it’s cold outside, I love to warm up to a hot, steaming bowl of seafood gumbo. I make gumbo with an over-abundance of shrimp, whole crab, chicken and sausage. I am not of fan of spicy food, but my gumbo must have lots of spices and just enough heat to warm me up on a cold winter day.

  • Linda C,

    Love your site! In the fall, I look forward to apple-cranberry crisp~yum!

  • Jessica

    In the fall, I love to make chicken cutlets with an apple cider and bacon sauce served with roasted spaghetti squash with sage butter and toasted walnuts. Yum!
