in Celebrity Chefs, Links, Products, To Buy / To Try

Le Creuset has had a big sale going on at for a while now and it made me wonder if perhaps, just maybe, that might possibly mean they’re going to introduce a new color. And wouldn’t it be a lovely thing if that meant they finally released a pink version of their dutch oven for Spring?! I’d die and go straight to pastel heaven if that happened. Come on Le Creuset! Make a girl’s dreams come true! My KitchenAid needs a friend.

Where's the Bacon?Everyone’s favorite Food Network hottie, Giada De Laurentiis, graces the cover of the latest Crate and Barrel catalog that arrived in my mailbox this week. She’s rolling out speciality oils and spices and grinning all the way to the bank. I poke fun now, but I’m a total celebrity chef junkie so no doubt a bottle of that oil will inevitably find its way into my kitchen. I truly don’t have any self-control whatsoever.

Seeds Not IncludedThat same catalog got me ridiculously over excited about a so-called cookware stand that could potentially cure the mess that is my pot and pan cupboard. Then I flipped out over a set of pristine bowls printed with fresh herbs that look so real I did a double take. In addition, these tomato and lettuce dish towels printed in vibrant red and green would be the perfect purchase for any cook in need of a little winter cheer. That means me. I looked like a drowned rat by the time I got home last night after a day of traipsing to and from the office in torrential downpours.

It’s about time Giada came out with her own oils and spices!

I am slightly obsessive about Le Creuset!

Shoot me later Erin – first of all – get thee to Crate & Barrel. I was there the other day and, while y’all might call me a sucker, I walked out of there with the Giada line *LOL* I’ll try it this weekend. As for those bowls, they are gorg. in person.

RE: Le Creuset – they are coming out with a new color according to my gal over at Williams-Sonoma,but it’s a special WS color. Perhaps there is a pink one in the works. I adore LC – my LC pots/pans are some of the best purchases I ever made.

RE: Pink – I’m hearing that it is *the* color of the Spring/Summer 08 season.

Lys – Ohhh! You’ll have to let me know what you think of the Giada products. Are they worth it?

When I saw the cookware stand in my Crate & Barrel catalog this week, I began to do some serious coveting! All the pots and pans I use the most are on bottom shelf of my coffee cart, but I would much prefer not to wipe coffee grounds out of them each time I want to use them. : )

I saw those bowls too! I think they are a must have!!

Melissa – I think we should each go buy a set on our next lunchtime shopping spree.

OMG! I would so be spending my savings on the pink set. My mixer is lonely too! 🙁
