Le Creuset Mini Cocettes with Flower Knob Giveaway and Mother's Day Ideas

Before I left for New York to visit with publicists and attend the James Beard awards with Jane, I had fun baking and photographing this charming set of Mini Round Cocotte with Flower Knobs from Le Creuset. I am not a person who loves flowers unless they are growing outside but these flowers, I can get behind. It is no secret I adore Le Creuset, and yes, I love other types of cookware as well but Le Creuset delivers so many beautiful colors and designs that they are my kryptonite.

Today, I am going to share some photos of a few things I made in the cocottes with recipes to come soon, but before that I want to tell you about some of Le Creuset's products that would be ideal for Mother's Day, bridal showers and summer brunches.

First up, the Fleur matte pieces are stunning. I have the oval pot picture below as well as the round cocotte that my husband generously bought me for Mother's Day last year. While matte isn't my favorite finish, I can't resist the embossed floral design and especially the floral knob that can be found on some of the cast iron enamel - so cute! 

And just when I thought I had everything I wanted, they did it again. Le Creuset has a new line of Lavender cook and stoneware which is now on my never-ending wish list. The 4 1/2 quart Dutch Oven, the Provence lavender plates, and the Au Gratin dish are available now on Le Creuset and they are beautiful!


Any of these gorgeous pieces would make Mom (or a new bride) happy this time of year and if you really love mom make her the Onion soup from the Le Creuset: A Collection of Recipes from Our French Table cookbook and deliver dinner to her in the pot (bonus points for buying her the book, too). The little cocottes would be wonderful to serve the soup in as they are broiler safe.

I have a few recipe ideas that I played around with using these adorable cocottes - one was a brownie and cinnamon roll mashup which went over huge at our house and I am planning on creating a bread pudding that is a play on a famous international dessert. I hope to get those recipes up for you before Mother's Day and definitely before summer arrives here in North America. 

Other great Mother's Day gifts from Le Creuset include:

Scroll through Le Creuset's Mother's Day suggestions and give a gift they will never forget. Le Creuset is giving one of you a set of these beautiful cocottes in our giveaway below. Special thanks to Le Creuset for providing me a set to experiment with and enjoy.

    I am in love with the Fleur Oval Cocotte, I think I would keep it on the table 90% of the time because it is so beautiful. But the piece I really really want is the red pepper-shaped pot I bought years ago that somehow disappeared when I moved out of the house I shared with my ex.

    The Ultimate cast iron set of course - it's technically one item catalog/buying wise. LOL but if not, you can never have enough of the larger Dutch ovens. Anything but black/gray/or white. I don't stick to just one color.
