Here’s What’s Cookin’

The last few days have been filled with questions and uncertainty for me, but I’ve started working through some of it.  I’ll talk about my thoughts/ideas/plans when I’m ready, but today I want to talk about something completely awesome.  I’ve been sharing my thoughts and ideas on eating habits a lot recently, and I’m feeling good about my choices to replace most processed foods with more fresh produce and lean meats (yeah, I’m going to continue eating meat at least for now.)

I feel lighter on my feet and less bloated when I take time to prepare my own meals, and enjoying a home cooked meal makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something.  So as you can imagine, I was thrilled to receive a beautiful 10-piece set of cookware last month courtesy of Calphalon.  And I’m just as excited about what I’m about to tell you!

Calphalon is giving one of my readers a chance to win this 10-piece Calphalon Unison Nonstick Cookware Set which is incredible for a few reasons.  First, the cookware is beautiful, and it’s so easy to use!  I’ve made some beautiful omelets in my 8-inch skillet, and if you know me, you know that’s quite an accomplishment!  I also discovered my love for cabbage when I prepared a fresh vegetable soup in my 8-quart stock pot. And transforming the contents of my refrigerator’s vegetable drawer is so easy in my 4-quart saute pan.  And one feature that I adore is the glass covers with handles that don’t get hot.  That will save more than an accident or two for yours truly. 😉

Cooking with these pots and pans makes me feel like a pro in the kitchen!  And as a health-minded individual, I love this set because I can cook with very little oil (and in some cases no oil)  allowing me to feel satisfied and healthy after my meals!

Now let’s talk about how you can win your own set of Calphalon cookware!  There are a few different ways to enter so you have more than one chance to win.  Here’s how:

  • Check out Calphalon’s website and tell me what’s at the top of your wish list.  I’d love to have one of everything, but at the top of my wish list you’d find this set of knives and this toaster and this slow cooker. You don’t have to list three things, but feel free.  I can tell you that my personal wish list is pretty long! 😉  (one entry)
  • Follow @Calphalon on twitter, and tell them that @alltheweigh says hi! (one entry)
  • Like Calphalon on Facebook, and tell them Kenlie from alltheweigh.com sent you! (one entry)
  • Feel free to say hi to me on Facebook too though you won’t receive an entry for that.  I just like talking to you. 🙂
  • Blog about my giveaway (linking to this post) on your own blog!  Come back and leave a link so I can see it.  (two entries)

You can submit your entries once a day for the duration of the contest, but please leave a separate comment for each entry (one comment for twitter, one comment for facebook, etc.) so I know you did it.  **If you don’t leave separate entries, they will not be counted separately.**

The contest is open to US residents only, and the winner will be chosen at 9pm central time on Wednesday, September 14th.  I’ll announce the winner in Thursday’s blog post. I will contact the winner via e-mail (so make sure you use an authentic e-mail when leaving your comments.)  The winner will have 48 hours to respond with their information, or another winner will be chosen.

I hope you all are as excited about this giveaway as I am! Thanks to Calphalon for making it possible! Now it’s time to enter! Good luck!

      The toaster is at the top of my list along with the slow cooker. I think most of us value a great toaster in our lives…at least, I do. 😉

    Copper cookware had been at the top of my wish list for quite a while! I also love the look of the Calphalon Classic Nonstick 10 in pan- no long handle so great for finishing in the oven. I love to cook and doing more of it has helped me lose 63lbs so far!

    Oooh, I’m jealous! The whole set of cookware looks amazing!

    Their 2 quart teakettle from their website would be at the top of my list – I drink tea twice a day, but I don’t own a tea kettle. http://store.calphalon.com/department/teakettles-percolators/1949-4294959409-1982-1957

    I’d also LOVE their panini press – I want to make grilled sandwiches without having to fry them in a ton of oil 🙂 http://store.calphalon.com/calphalon-electrics-panini-grill/281783

      No Mary. You don’t have to comment twice for it to be counted twice. I’ll count the blog posts myself since there are fewer anyway. Thanks for blogging about it!

    I would kill for a new set of basic cookware. Mine is horrendous (and very sad). My brother has several of their saute pans and other cookware and I love it.

    My Calphalon wishlist would include that sexy slow-cooker, the five-piece roasting set and the panini grill (what? was I only expected to pick one thing?). Of course, a new set of non-stick pans would certainly be the bee’s knees!

    Oh, man…I’m a baker/cook (and I prepare about 99.9% of my monthly meals at home, in my own kitchen…all from scratch…including graham crackers and pasta sauce) and I am still cooking for my family on my crappy college pots and pans…which are really falling apart, so I’m jumping in on this one. Thank you, Kenz!!!!

    I spent A LOT of time over at Calphalon’s Website trying to think of something that I would absolutely kill to have (it took forever because I wanted everything!). But, since I hate my current, like, KMart cookware, I’d have to say I need the whole nine yards and go with one of their amazing cookware sets: Calphalon Unison Nonstick 8-pc. Cookware Set (http://store.calphalon.com/calphalon-unison-nonstick-8-pc-cookware-set/220890).

    You’d understand my selection if you knew just how much, how often I cook!

    Thanks again, dear!

    My family and I love omeletts so I’d have to pick the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 2-pc. Omelette Pan Set. My non-stick pans have had it. I really need to purchase new ones.

    I love the 14 piece cookware set! I am a young grandfather, and I lost a set like this when our home burned, and cannot afford to replace it.

    I am desperately wanting a griddle pan!! Wait…or was that the 7-quart digital slow cooker? Oh, who cares…someone could give me anything from Calphalon and I’d jump for joy! Their cookware is awesome, especially for the health-conscious cook.

      I’m going to have to find you on twitter and ask what you make in the dutch oven. I think I could make lamb chops, but I don’t eat lamb. 😉

    Calphalon is smart. It was fun poking around their site, and wishin’ & dreamin. 🙂 And the giveaway cost is an advertising cost & a win win.
    Speaking of win, it sho will be nice for the winner!
    I like the multi-pot, & the sauce pan with steamer insert. Healthy cooking right there..steaming veggies!
    Thanks for offering this, Calphalon, bc I know the winner will be blessed. And thanks for blessing our buddy Kenlie w/cookware. That makes all of her readers happy, and she deserves some sunshine!

    I’d love to have the grill pan! I love grilled foods, but having an actual grill is possible right now, so this would be a great alternative!

    Furthermore, I wanted to express my desire to have Calphalon’s “No Peek Waffle Maker” because I always see healthy, homemade waffle recipes (think Spunkysuzi!) posted on here. I’d love to have a waffle maker to make treats for my little guys.

    Hey, Kenlie! It’s me again. I decided to peruse Calphalon’s baking stuff and I came across their “Classic Nonstick Bakeware 4-pc. Cookie Set” and I am adding it to my Christmas list (I just saw it’s on sale!). I just started making my kids homemade graham crackers and this would help! 😉 I want it.

    What a fantastic giveaway! Ooooh, so much to choose from. I’d love their 8″ omelette pan – I had my first omelette ever a few months ago and loved it but haven’t been able to make my own with my current crappy cookware.

    I would love any of these, specially Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12-pc. Cookware Set. Our pots are from my aunt, from 20 yrs ago and figures that on our wedding registry we got everything but pots & pans!

    Also one Calphalon Electrics 7-qt. Digital Slow Cooker since I’ve never own a slow cooker.

    I would love to win this set, and I would take anything Calphlon felt like giving to me. Their stuff is so nice so I am going to ask my hubby to give me the bakeware set for my birthday Friday.

    I also just saw, via the Calphalon.com Site, that they have a cupcake pan that you bake in and then use it as a carrier for the cupcakes. This would be PERFECT for me…since I accidentally burned the plastic section on the one that I used to have. 🙁

    Classic Nonstick Bakeware 12-c. Portable Cupcake Pan <—- want!

    As a vegetarian, I’d LOVE to have a nice Panini pan to help me get some good crust on some bangin’-good-healthy sammiches like tomato, basil, and mozzarella w/ champagne mustard. So…I’m eyeing up Calphalon’s Contemporary Nonstick 9×12-in. Panini Pan and Press. I would love to have one.

    Man…I wish I had a real wedding so I could’ve at least registered for this stuff when I was young and had a shot at getting ’em. 🙁
