Giveaway: Nespresso Lattissima+

Red Latt+

This giveaway is now closed, 12/18/12.

As the gift-giving season gets into full swing, I always seem to notice tons of adorable clothes, accessories, and jewelry…for myself.

It’s completely selfish, and totally weird, considering I don’t even like shopping that much the rest of the year. But as soon as I get frustrated prowling the aisles for the perfect gifts for family and friends, all I seem to notice is the perfect gift for me.

That’s why I’m so happy that my friends at Nespresso have offered this compact Lattissima+ machine for me to give away to you. Sure, you could gift it to your mom, your best friend, or your partner. But you could also win it for yourself. That would mean treating yourself to lattes and espressos at home all through the Christmas season and beyond. To make it yours, you don’t have to prowl any aisles. Just share your ideal holiday breakfast, the best possible treat you’d want to pair with your cup of Joe–who knows, you might just see your recipe come to life on the blog in the coming months.

To enter the Nespresso Lattissima+ Giveaway, you must:

  • Leave a comment below and tell us your favorite special breakfast (cinnamon buns? extra-crumble coffee cake? homemade bagels & lox?) to go with your coffee.
  • (Extra Entry) Become a fan of the BGSK Facebook Page
  • (Extra Entry) Tell your facebook friends/fans about the contest – post the link and @Big Girls Small Kitchen
  • (Extra Entry) Tweet about this contest @BGSK

I’ll announce the randomly selected winner next week on the blog. Good luck!

From my kitchen, albeit small, to yours,

    My favourite breakfast with coffee is pie, especially blueberry pie =)

  • Bonny Korsmo Clark

    My favorite special breakfast to go with my coffee would have to be my mom’s french toast made on a baguette and coated in cinnamon sugar with some bacon on the side. :)

  • Stacey

    In our house, I do the vast majority of the cooking. Dinners are on me, unless the preparation involves heating up leftovers. Breakfast is when I get to relax and get waited on by my husband. His specialty is swedish pancakes. They’re the perfect amount of sweet for me.

  • Sarah Pond

    My favorite breakfast is eggs benedict, all made by my boyfriend! We do it every New Years, and at least once a month.

  • Jen Morris

    Want!! I have been eying these for a while but can’t afford it. I would make myself one of the delicious little cups with the foam, & top with a sprinkle of raw sugar. Then I would take a seat, open a good book, or journal and enjoy with a piece of whole grain toast, covered in almond butter and banana slices. Sometimes I even add a drizzle of honey. Yum. (I also love breakfast burritos & the occasional homemade cinnamon roll). :)

  • Neha Lalani

  • Jessie

    Mm… my favorite stretched-out weekend breakfast is two slices of cinnamon raisin toast, a couple of clementines, some Greek yogurt, and maybe some oatmeal later on if I need some more sustenance. All would be made better by homemade lattes :)

  • Alice Wu

    Crepes w/ fresh fruit

  • Tyler Taylor

    My favorite breakfast is homemade granola with homemade yogurt and slices of homemade apples with a sprinkling of homemade sugar

  • Amy

    Swedish flop coffee cake- it is so unhealthy but so good!

  • Mel

    My family loves egg sandwiches for breakfast – for a holiday, with a homemade latte, I’d definitely fancy it up a bit. Farm fresh eggs, on buttered and grilled artisan bread, melted cheddar with thick cut peppered bacon. Not good for the arteries, but definitely good for the soul!

  • Rob

    Holiday Breakfast Entry #60: As I wake up in the morning and look out my frost covered window, I wipe away the cold with my palm and take in the day ahead. Thoughts of coffee are fast approaching as I slip on my well worn house slippers and make my way down the wooden stairs that creek all the way to the kitchen. Passing by my two cats, waiting quietly for me on the counter, both of which I’ve had for twelve years, I hand crush my coffee beans imported from a small south american village. My trusty Pestle set is a reminder of the days before cell phones and flat screen TVs (both of which I have and enjoy) and calms me before I venture out to another day at the lumber yard. Coffee now made and newspaper in hand
    (I’m sad to think future generations may question what a newspaper was) I’m comforted by the fact that the holidays are here and my small town is now lit up with colorful lights hanging from just about everything hang -on-able. Seriously, what could be better than the smell of homemade (shipped to me by my grandmother) sticky buns warming in the oven, soon to be joined by the coffee I’ve now brewed. I don’t purchase napkins anymore for fear of the temptation to wipe my fingers of the gooey gold that now drips onto my counter, quickly devoured by a million little licks from the two feline family members by my side. Here’s to the Holiday breakfast and the coffee that compliments it so well. Happy days to you all! Enjoy your food or your missing everything.

  • Brittany

    I’d love some scrambled eggs with a chocolate croissant and a latte :)

  • Habibi

    I’d start my perfect breakfast with some huevos rancheros, eggs over easy of course, with a side of savory herb biscuits, and finish with some warm chocolate chip cookies, all the while sipping the amazing coffee I’d be making with this little gizmo. What can I say, I love breakfast :)

  • BritanTM

    I have two new breakfast faves – the coffeehouse down the street makes a mean sausage roll, but Panera always gets me with that cinnamon crunch bagel!

  • Kristin Crysler

    My favorite treat is a breakfast casserole with hash browns in it.

  • ebbie

    Best breakfast with a latte is a bagel and cream cheese with lox, red onion, and capers! (And time to read the paper in bed as well)

  • lguz

    Best Breakfast possible is a homemade honey broiled bagel with eggs, cheese, and bacon. And of course a fresh cup of coffee :)

  • Liza Glick

    Bagels and lox is my favorite!

  • GrenouilleBK

  • Daniel

    Pulled pork sandwich with a coffee. I am serious.

  • Leah Franklin

    My favorite coffee accompaniment is my Mom’s homemade cinnamon toast. Whole wheat bread toasted with butter, sugar, and cinnamon on top. It’s got a satisfying crunch from the sugar and a hint of bitterness from the cinnamon…and it reminds me (in a good way) of my Mom :).

  • sideworkends

    the most special occassion breakfast– so special that I only have it once a year– is a thick slice of Chocolate babka toasted til the chocolate is *this* close to melting. With a dark steaming cup of coffee alongside, it is pure heaven.

  • Laura Banish Abbasi

    Huevos rancheros, with delicious red and green New Mexico chile. It’s not just my favorite breakfast, it’s last meal kind of stuff. With coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice, please.

    The Christmas Breakfast tradition in my family is eating the sugar cookies we decorated on Christmas Eve! Sugar overload and oh so good. :-) Some years we also make a Breakfast “Pizza”, which is just a quiche-like casserole with a crust of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls dough. Savory and sweet and Christmas, ah…. though naturally there is much coffee consumed with both.

  • Brittany

    Traditional Norwegian Kringla. We’ve been having it on Christmas morning for years in my family and it wouldn’t be the holidays without one!

  • Evelyn R

    I am a fan of the BGSK

  • Paulina

    My favourite breakfast is chocolate croissants with raspberry jam YUM!

  • Caitlin B.

    My favorite breakfast is a slice of delicious, hearty bread toasted with strawberry jam and nutella.

  • Jordan Boughrum

    i think the best thing to go with a coffee on a weekend is a slice of crust french bread with a little butter and strawberry jam, not forgetting to dip in your coffee…i mean, ridiculous.

  • Jordan Boughrum

    i think the best thing is a slice of crusty french bread, some butter and strawberry jam – dipped in your coffee…i mean, delish.

    • kim b

      Oh I forgot to say that I put the muffin pan in the oven on 350F for 15 min.

  • Snow Berry

    French toast with powdered sugar.

  • Katharyn Ickes

    With coffee I like a Madeleine cookie. I make them on sunday and they only last halfway through the week, someone always eats a few when I bring them to work! I like that I can mix whatever I choose into the batter just before I bake them. I can have asiago cheese (it is good in a cookie too, not overpowering or funky) or I can have current or almond. I like that the serving size is ideal and highlights the coffee I’m drinking. As a chef I like that people think Madeleines are complicated and they are so simple and fun! Muffins are always on the rage but they have higher fat ratios then madeleines more often then not. The cookie can be a rich product but is a high egg content cookie so if you are going to be naughty, keep it french!

  • Amy

    I loveeeeeeee eggs benedict. yum! w/ some home fries.

  • Kim G

    For a special treat I like to make a blueberry french toast casserole!

  • Minna

  • Jennifer

    We are oatmeal junkies, but we reserve the steel-cut oats for special occasions when we have time to linger and enjoy. Toasting the oats before adding the liquid and then adding dried cherries and finishing with banana slices and maple syrup is my favorite, especially when paired with a wonderfully milky cup of coffee.

  • Juli Bradychok

    a pasta (italian for pastry) and some good yogurt like spega or yomo…

  • Jules

    My perfect holiday breakfast would have to be, a perfectly poached egg on top of a mixture of sage, sweet Italian sausage, red pepper and roasted sweet potato hash accompanied by a great cuppa joe!

    It’s a big one but when in Rome…

  • Molly

    Hot-out-of-the-oven cinnamon buns, oozing with cinnamon sugar and dripping with icing. Eaten in PJs on the couch. With a fruit cup on the side, because you don’t want to feel guilty on Christmas. And, of COURSE, a steaming cup of frothy coffee!

    The most wonderful yet very sinful baked pecan maple French toast with a delicious cup or two of hazelnut coffee!! AMAZING :)

  • Andrea Abarca-Grimsley

    croque monsieur muffins with a strong cup of coffee: buttered, stale sliced bread on the bottom of a muffin tin, ham, raw egg and topped with gruyere or sharp cheddar cheese and in the oven and into the oven till the cheese bubbles, the whites are cooked and the yokes are gooey. If its a Sunday, I’ll make béchamel, if it’s a Monday, not so much.

  • Dee

    My favourite lazy, decadent breakfast is creme brulee french toast. You put everything together the night before and breakfast can be in the oven before you’re properly awake and your coffee’s done brewing.

    Eggs Benedict (with the real, lemony buttery hollandaise!) is my fave for sure, but to go with coffee – hot and gooey cinnamon buns.

My grandparents are no longer with us, but I still have such fond memories of of sausage and scrambled eggs and blueberry muffins, and I make them for my kids now.

    I am a savory breakfast girl, which sometimes makes life difficult, as most breakfast is sugar based. But a friend introduced me to these Morning Star biscuits filled with fake sausage, eggs, and cheese. They are super yummy with a cup of coffee. And really fast, too. I’m kinda obsessed with them.

    My favorite special breakfast is a sweet spin on Eggs in the Hole. You use fancy Panetone bread (italian fruitcake) cut thick (abt 1/2) and then cut out the center With a small cookie cutter, make sure you butter both sides and place in pan. Crack eggs in the hole, cook on both sides and voila serve with maple bacon syrup! FANCY PANTS HOLIDAY BREAKFAST to enjoy with you fancy home brewed latte from your Nespresso Lattissima.

    I’m loving Pepperidge Farms swirl bread! They have seasonal flavors like Pumpkin! 😀 I’d totally have a latte with that! Thanks for the opportunity! I’ve tweeted and Facebooked :)


  • Francine F.

    I love to make French Toast with pannetone – discovered this the year we received an abundance of holiday baskets!

  • Casey

    I love having a bowl of my own homemade granola. It’s an easy way to keep breakfast exciting and delicious without loading up too much on sweets so I can enjoy those treats later!

    My special breakfast: Always start with a double cappuccino ~ Smokes salmon hash with over medium/well eggs ~ Fluffy buttermilk biscuits with fresh peach jam ~ Just picked berries ~ Champagne & orange juice,,,,finally, great company to enjoy this with.

  • allisonemme

    I actually love dipping almost any type of biscotti in a delicious cup of coffee… but a scone or grainy muffin will do as well

  • Nicole

    Favorite special breakfast would be white chocolate chip cranberry pancakes with real maple syrup. Would go great with a latte!!

  • Kimmer

    My favorite special breakfast is lovingly called ‘the big breakfast’ by my kids. Whenever they have a sleepover, or cousins come to visit, I make a huge breakfast! Pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, homefries, oj, fruit, toast, bagels, homemade jam and local honey and of course a wonderful cup of coffee. Love it!

  • Lauren H.

    First necessity: french pressed coffee. My favorite is Happy Cup Coffee (, a Portland company that employs local adults with disabilities and donates all profits to vocational and recreational programming for the community. No better way to start the day for me! I also like to roast potatoes, peppers, and onions in an iron skillet with Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning. It is impossibly delicious.

  • Sandra

    Eggs Benedict Cassarole with Cranberry Juice Mimosa’s-yum!

    Typically my favorite breakfast involves eggs–scrambled, frittata, omelette, etc. But when I am enjoying a “fancy” breakfast on a special occasion, like a holiday with family and friends, I want pancakes with fruit and whipped cream and a big beautiful latte! I alrready “Like” your page on FB! Thanks!

  • Bekah M.

    I love huevos rancheros. I don’t get them all the time, which makes it extra special when I do. (Would also be more special if I weren’t the only one who seemed to know how to make them….)

  • Bekah M.

    Also a fan on Facebook.

  • Becs

    I love over medium eggs with buttered toast from my local farmers, with a side of black coffee and the new york times. Can’t think of anything better!

  • Alexis Gabay

    oooh – so many favorite breakfasts, but if we’re talking coffee, I’d have to go with a great piece of coffee cake. My current favorite is a Martha Stewart recipe for blackberry cornmeal cake. Not too rich, not too sweet, dense with fresh blackberries and a texture just crumbly enough to make it fun, this is the perfect match for a great cup of coffee from Nespresso.

  • Patty J

    I love my Mom’s sour cream coffee cake (Ina Garten has one with the same ingredients – minus the glaze), yoghurt with raisins and chocolate chips, and a cap in a warm mug. This compact Nespresso Lattissima would complete the picture.

  • JoanneB

    Typically I love eggs for breakfast — omelete, scrambled, frittata, etc! But on a special occasion, like a holiday breakfast with friends and family, I love pancakes with fruit and whipped cream, and of course, a delicious latte to round everything out! I alread like you on FB. Thanks!!

  • EldoCook

    My favorite holiday breakfast is one that is prepared for me by my sweetie, with the table set with my casual Italian pottery, funky silverware, the first and only pottery coffee mug that I ever made in that hand throwing ceramics class that I took so long ago. My favorite breakfast is fairly traditional and comforting: an everything bagel, lightly toasted, with cream cheese, lox, a slice of red onion and a slice of a good sweet tomato, a cup of double cappuccino in that coffee mug, a bottle of champagne or a pitcher of mimosas, followed by chocolate chip cookies or chocolate biscotti, to be dunked in the cappuccino. And that breakfast is relaxing with NO HURRYING to have breakfast; we can take all the time that we please. AHHH…

  • L Braxton

    I love having an omelet and buttered toast with a strong cup of coffee with steamed milk

  • Salma

    I enjoy ‘french’ toast except with an Indian flavour. I make it savoury with salt, pepper,chili powder, cumin & chopped up cilantro.

  • Greg

    Ooh, a breakfast casserole of sausage, bacon, potato, green onions cheese egg, and whatever else that is left over and looks good. OJ and sourdough toast.

  • Maggie

    My favorite special Holiday Breakfast is Sausage Gravy and biscuits. Mom always made it Christmas morning, and it is still something I look forward to every year.

  • Sarah

    My all-time favorite is a leftover piece of chocolate cake, but that’s not exactly realistic for every day. Instead, I love homemade granola with milk and berries. And a cappuccino, of course!

  • Kathleen

    I eat a bowl of oatmeal and either oranges or tangerines in morning. I love oatmeal! Irish oatmeal today….Trader Joe’s oatmeal yesterday. Yummy!

    2 eggs in the nooks and crannies of a salted english muffin.

    My favorite breakfast is good ol’ southern biscuits and gravy. Sometimes I substitute pork sausage for Morning Star under the pretense that I’m making it healthier, but either way it’s my favorite morning indulgence.

  • Deana Heard

    Sausage & cheese omelet with biscuits and gravy.

    A spinach herb bagel topped with sliced avocado, tomatoes, some freshly chopped spinach (for that extra dose of Popeye), and a poached egg with a side strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, whatever happens to be in season, and of course, don’t forget your energy for the day! A nice steaming cup of hazelnut coffee. Sounds lovely. Have a delightful day! :-)

    Ever since I was a little kid, Belgium waffles have always been a decadent breakfast treat for me. They are big, fluffy, and tasty and the syrup falls right into each square in the waffle. Fruit on top with powdered sugar always seem to top it off perfectly! :)

  • Sonya

    My favorite breakfast is usually a breakfast burrito with eggs, bacon, and cheese plus a good cup of coffee. This Nespresso would be a perfect addition to my morning routine!

  • Lauren Schultz

    Nothing goes better with coffee that a delicious fritatta. I made one yesterday with broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, mushrooms, and onions, and a dash of spicy pickle juice. Covered in mozzerella cheese and baked until crispy. Hands down it’s the best way to start the day, next to your strong cup of coffee.

  • Rhiannon Schaeffer

    Good old fashion scrambled eggs made with whole mix, salt and paper. Just like my grandma use to make. Served with buttered toast and ketucp on the side for the eggs. YUMMY!
