#CookingPlanit Tfal Giveaway!

What is one thing you can’t live without in your kitchen? For me, it is my Tfal cookware set. Seriously! Without your pots and pans, how would you get dinner done every night?IMG_0052

That is why I was totally pumped to try out this Tfal Stainless Steel with Thermo-­spot 12-­Piece Cookware Set. The Tfal Stainless Steel with Thermo-­spot 12-­Piece Cookware Set combines the best of both worlds: a sleek exterior of brushed stainless steel and the Tfal patented non?stick interior and unique Thermo?spot™ technology. Thermo?spot™ technology indicates when the pan is perfectly preheated by changing from the pattern spot to solid red. The stainless steel base delivers optimal heat distribution, eliminates hot spots and prevents warping.

We literally have 6 wedding to attend this year, and this honestly is a great gift for all of them! It really takes the guess work out of cooking just like using the Cooking PlanIt website! If you’ve never used Cooking PlanIt, you definitely don’t know what you are missing! It is beyond awesome. It helps you meal plan so that your sides are done at the same time as your main course. The site has so many good recipes on it to try too! It is for beginners and experts alike.

I have been using my new cookware set for a couple of weeks now to put it through its paces. The 12 piece set includes: 8” Sauté pan, 10” Sauté pan, 1 Qt. saucepan and cover, 2 Qt. Saucepan and cover, 3
Qt. Saucepan and cover, 5 Qt. Dutch Oven and cover, and 2 Stainless Glass Lids. These are oven safe to 500 degrees! I love that they are dishwasher safe and come with a limited lifetime warranty. I’ve made plenty of food with it (and a few Cooking Planit recipes too!), and it’s a great cookware set! It is nice looking and performs exactly like it is suppose to.

That is why I was so happy to team together with both Tfal and Cooking PlanIt for this giveaway! You can win your very own Tfal Stainless Steel with Thermo-­spot 12-­Piece Cookware Set! Here’s what you need to do:

Elizabeth’s Spaghetti Sauce

Elizabeth's Spaghetti Sauce
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 roll of Bob Evans Italian Sausage
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes in puree
  • 1 can of Hunt’s Traditional spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can of petite diced tomatoes flavored with green pepper, celery and onion
Instructions
  1. Crumble a roll of Bob Evans Italian Sausage into a large saucepan and brown.
  2. Add in crushed tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, and diced tomatoes.
  3. Stir to combine, raise the heat until it bubbles (careful of the splattering, hold the saucepan lid over the pan), then turn it down to low and let it simmer very gently until it is heated through. The longer it sits, the better.
  4. Add over your noodles and you have dinner!

 

Farberware 3-Quart Covered Straining Saucepan

Screen Shot 2013-03-24 at 8.20.35 PMI am always looking for products that make my life easier and that make me use less dishes. The newest Farberware plan has been a great answer for us!

The Farberware 3-Quart Covered Straining Saucepan is pretty awesome. The lid has a deep rim with optional straining holes. To strain, line the holes up with the pan’s pour spouts and strain with ease. For covered cooking, rotate the lid to close the holes and moisture will stay inside the pan. To pour, remove the lid and use the pour spouts that are built into the pan body. It is that easy to use! It is dishwasher safe. The heavy gauge construction also distributes the heat evenly throughout the pan. Bill tried it out first and was impressed that the handles didn’t get hot! The Depont Teflon nonstick interior means that food won’t stick too.

We had great results with this saucepan. After such great results from this saucepan, our next frying pan and saucepans will be from Farberware!
