Crosby & Taylor Measuring Spoons Giveaway (Recipe: Nutella Crepes)

This giveaway is now closed. The Random Number Generator chose Carolyn,  from All Day I Dream About Food. Congrats Carolyn! If you weren’t as lucky as Carolyn, don’t worry. My good friend Deb from SmithBites is giving away a set of Crosby & Taylor Measuring Spoons too! Hustle over to her blog… her giveaway ends on Wednesday, December 22nd!

I love beautiful things… and as my husband will proclaim, I can go into any store and manage to fall in love with the most expensive thing in it. It’s a special gift I have…like a super power of sorts.

Being surrounded by beautiful things just makes me happier, doesn’t it you? The other day I was in my kitchen making crepes for the first time and frankly, I wasn’t having a lot of success. The first several crepes ended up in the garbage disposal. But, you know what? I didn’t let it get me down. I had beautiful music playing on my Kitchen iHome, I was surrounded by my beautiful family, and every time I glanced to my right, I got a peek at this beautiful pewter measuring spoon set from Crosby & Taylor.

I was introduced to the lovely people at Crosby & Taylor when they contacted me about doing a giveaway for a set of their measuring spoons. As I read their story and browsed their product line, I was immediately drawn in…how could I not be? Everything on their site is beautiful. And as I’ve discovered over the past couple of weeks… the team behind Crosby & Taylor are just as beautiful as their products. They are truly the kind of people you want to know and be associated with.

Thanks to Crosby & Taylor, I have a Vineyard Pewter Measuring Spoons and a Pewter Stand to give away to one lucky Dine & Dish reader. This is sure to be an heirloom you’ll pass down through the generations. To enter, all you have to do is:

  • Leave one comment on this post telling me what your most treasured heirloom is that you’ve received.

For multiple entries, you can:

  • Become a fan of Crosby & Taylor on Facebook. Come back to this blog post and leave an additional comment letting me know that you did that.
  • Crosby & Taylor products would make a beautiful, unique gift for anyone on your list. Hint to hubby… I’d love to have the matching vineyard measuring cups! Head over to the Crosby & Taylor website and tell me what product you’d most like to find under your tree.

The giveaway will end at midnight CST on Tuesday, December 14th and it is my goal to get the winner their gorgeous set before the Christmas holiday.

Now, on to those Nutella Crepes. Delicious, yummy, delectable Nutella Crepes from one of my favorite chefs, Jeffrey Saad. Jeffrey made this for the Bush’s Beans team when we were all in Napa this fall and it was *gasp* the first time I had ever tried Nutella. I was an instant fan. Follow the directions on the recipe and if you haven’t made crepes before, take it from me. It is going to take a few crepes down the drain before you get the hang of it, but after that, you’ll be an old pro in no time!

Nutella Crepes from Jeffrey Saad

2      eggs

1      egg yolk

1     cup milk

1/2   cup water

pinch  salt

1.5   ounces butter, melted

1 tsp sugar

dash of vanilla

1    cup all-purpose flour

extra butter to cook with

Nutella

Powdered Sugar for garnish

Combine 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, milk, water, salt, sugar, vanilla and melted butter in a blender and pulse until foamy  add flour and pulse until smooth. Let the batter sit for an hour.

Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly.  Cook until the top loses its gloss, which should only take a minute, then flip. The bottom should be golden. Cook the other side for about 15 seconds and then slide out onto a plate. Keep warm in a 250F oven or serve right away spread with Nutella, roll and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Makes about 12 large or 16 small crepes.

I was given a set of Pewter Measuring Spoons from Crosby & Taylor as well as a set to giveaway to you all. The opinions about their product stated in this post, however, are my own

  1. I’m a fan of Crosby and Taylor on Facebook…

  2. My most treasured heirloom are the crystal candlesticks from Tiffany’s that were my grandmothers.

  3. Marilyn Ferrell says:

    After my mother-in-law passed away 6 years ago, I was terribly depressed after my brother-in-law decided that his new wife should have her lovely, diamond anniversary ring. They also took her set of silverplated silverware which I had longed for for years as I set the table for special occasions. After all had been distributed, I stumbled upon a distressed ring in her jewelry box which had had a stone cut from the center and a band almost worn through. Amazingly, it was my size (4 1/2). I took it to our local jeweler who restored it to its original. Even though I wanted a larger stone, he replaced it with a tiny diamond that it originally had. He said it was 14kt gold, dated from late 1800’s to early 1900’s, and the wear proved how much she loved it. We assume it belonged to my husband’s grandmother whom he loved dearly. I have worn it every day since with pride and it serves as a reminder that material things are just that. Fortunately I followed my intuition and did not overlook and discard this sad-looking ring so now I have something more valuable to pass down to my children. I had the jeweler make a mold of the ring in case it is ever lost or in case someone else wants a replica. I have encouraged my children to let me know if there is anything they would like to have to avoid heartbreak and disappointment in the far, far future.

    I discovered an old, distressed ring by accident while going through my mother-in-law’s jewelry box after her death. What initially appeared as a skeleton of a ring with missing stone and worn-out band turned out to be an heirloom dating to late 1800’s to early 1900’s in 14kt white gold apparently belonging to my husband’s grandmother whom he loved dearly. Totally restored, it is my favorite heirloom which I wear every day.

  5. Paulynn Baillargeon says:

    I inhearited a china closet that I use to display my favorite plates and ornaments. A reminder of what our ancesters had for storage as they had no cabinets to store any of these items.

  6. The Lords Prayer cross-stitched by my great-great Grandmother GiGi.

  7. Hand sewen clothes and cross stiched “pictures” from my great,great grandmother.

  8. Jeanette B says:

    Mine are my mixing bowls the the women in my family, Bauer bowls and old pottery bowls. I have such good memories when I bring them out and use them of the goodies that were mixed in the bowls and the stories of the things mixed in the bowls before I was even born.

  9. My Grandmothers Shadow Box. It is large and bulky and often difficult to find wall space for. But I would not give it up for the world.

  10. Yay me! Thanks so much, Kristen. I hope you got my message with my address. I look forward to seeing these up close and personal.

  11. Can’t wait to make these.. so simple, yet so fabulous!

  12. Arlene Burger says:

    July 22, 2013 was my 59th Birthday and my husband and I were in Maine vacationing at Moosehead Lake, Greenville.. We came across a store called Maine Mountain Soap & Candles Co. When we walked in the door I immediately saw the most beautiful measuring cups and stand that I have ever seen (I believe the name of them is Fleur de Lys). I really wanted them but the price was over my budget. While canoeing and enjoying the Loons on the lake later that day my husband presented me with a birthday gift….yes, the Crosby & Taylor pewter measuring cups. We are home now in PA and they look even more beautiful in my kitchen.
    It is now my most favorite heirloom. Absolutely Beautiful.!!!!!
