  • Hi Jenn,
    Yesterday I made the pumkin pecan crunch muffins, OMG!!! It was so amazing delicious and moist. My husband is in the air force and I sent some muffins with him to share with his coworkers and it was a hit.

  • So many times I have turned to this recipes on this website for ideas for dinner. I can always count on Once Upon A Chef to help out.

  • Ringing in the holidays with your fantastic recipes! I like to bring the sweet smells of autumn into our home in southern Florida so to begin I made some of your FABulous Spiced Pumpkin cookies. I changed the granulated sugar to organic sugar & used a little less sugar all around. Next, I wanted to make your Chai Banana Bread. So I made it twice because I wanted to attempt an alternative. The original recipe is DELICIOUS! My second loaf I added pumpkin and used home made almond flour to replace all-purpose flour, and cut open two chai teabags to add to this mix. Replaced sour cream with some almond milk and used organic eggs. All recipes are terrific and I have a happy family! I enjoy using your recipes and adding my own twist at times. Thanking you for passing on your recipes on your great site! 🙂

  • Thank you for the opportunity to enter this giveaway. Sure would like these pots and pans. I got a new kitchen last year and these would be lovely in it. A month ago I made your Ruglach recipe and it is very similar to the one I have been using. In fact the dough is the same, it is the filling is different. I usually use an apricot or raspberry, even prune fillings. Yours was a delightful change.

  • love to win the cookware. I alway reduce the sugar in the recipes I think the sugar amount is just a little to much

  • I tried the Cranberry Nut Bread the other day and to my delight liked it a lot. The only thing I did differently was leave out the orange zest. Not a fan, but the bread was nice and moist and quite flavorful.

  • Would love to win this cookware!

  • Commenting again for my 2nd entry 🙂 Thanks for the chance

  • Reviewed two of your recipes, dont remember all the ones Ive made but I love your site!

  • Would love to win this!

  • Yes, I would certainly like to win this set of lovely cooking dishes… I enjoy having that shiny stainless steel in my kitchen.

  • Am getting ready to add on to my kitchen and could sure use a new set of these to go in it on a new pot rack.

  • The French Skillets are the best for stovetop to oven when making frittata. I first sauté the vegetables, then add the egg moisture and into the oven. Something about Anolon creates the moistest frittatas ever! Thank you!

  • I’m generally not a Chicken tender fan. I do try to stay away from fried foods, especially at home because I feel like I’m using so much oil…duh :). However, a few months back I had a dinner some friends over with some picky eaters for kiddos. I knew that chicken tenders would be a winner. What child doesn’t like friend chicken? 🙂 So i made the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Tenders. Well lets just say we all ended up eating these, especially the adults. I should have made more. I followed the recipe to a T. As I do most of your recipes. No need to change a good thing 🙂
    I just realized in the past year I have made A LOT of your food.
    Here is my running list:
    Chez Francois Spread
    Savory Sausage and Chedder Bread Pudding
    Spinach and Gruyere Quiche
    Drunken Caramel French Toast
    Fudgy Double Chocolate Meringues
    Forgotten Kisses
    Onion Braised Beef Brisket
    Middle eastern Chicken Kebabs
    Buttermilk Friend Chicken Tenders
    Asain BBQ Chicken
    Zucchini Fritters with Feta and Dill
    Fettuccine Bolognese
    Easy Butternut Squash
