I won a Major Award!
A few weeks ago, I was notified that my entry in a Calphalon online contest was the Winner!
The hodge-podge of skillets and sauce-pans I use now is embarrassing. Cooking in dented, scratched and worn pans is not inspiring, not to mention un-safe.

The contest was to choose a set of pans using their fun app on the Calphalon website and write a story about how you would use them. I told of how we live at TheHouseAtTheLake, quiet cooking during the week, like this Tomato Soup, but NoHoldsBarred cooking on the weekends for hungry hoards that come to visit! We cook almost ALL our meals at home, so the cookware would get a work-out. I chose some Small Pans and a few Large pans. I had so much FUN working on that entry!

The boxes happened to arrive on my Birthday, so that made it even Better!

Alice took photos and checked the shipment invoices while I just kept opening boxes.

The winner received $500 in Calphalon pans. I got to pick out what I wanted. You see, in the Calphalon Online Store, you can customize your set for your life! MY set has a few small pans and a few large ones….in the Unison Nonstick line.

I’ve cooked several things already and I can’t say this enough. When you have the right tools, you can do the job.

It washes as well as you think it would! I kinda sorta burned this dish…..some leftover noodles with cheese…..and it just slid out of the pan.

THANK YOU so much, Calphalon, for your generous prize. I am beyond happy!
