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

    My most treasured item is a huge spaghetti bowl from my Grandmother. As a child I loved serving spaghetti in this bowl and tracing my fingers of the word spaghetti written in cursive with noodles on the inside. I rarely use the bowl now because of my small children put a nick on the rim but it is proudly displayed in my hutch.

    Unfortunately, my family was quite dysfunctional. My husband and I are creating traditions with our children that we hope to pass on. These would be a great way to start heirloom traditions with my children!

    I love the diamond ring whose 3/4-carat stone originally traveled from Poland to my former homeland of Azerbaijan with my great-grand-mother when she was a little girl (it was in the family). The diamond was later set into a new ring by my grandmother and given to my mom for her thirtieth birthday, who later gave it to me when I was 26 – the ring has traveled with me back to US. I now wear it with my wedding ring, which is also my mom’s, as a set. If you think of it, the stone was a witness to the Russian empire, the original oil boom in Azerbaijan, the fall of the empire and the beginning of the Soviet Union, WWII, the fall of the Soviet Union, and has later traversed an ocean to live on a new continent. It’s a real raw form of ancestor worship, a direct connection. I plan to eventually give it to my daughter.

    These are beautiful! I have a beautiful antique armoir from my Grandmother. I love seeing it every day and thinking about her. It’s worth much more than any dollar amount.

    Gorgeous.. both the crepes and the measuring spoons!! Don’t feel badly about tossing the first few crepes you made – that is generally the ways it goes when making crepes and as the photos show, yours came out beautifully!!

    Favorite heirloom? My mother’s engagement ring.

    Love the spoons!

    I would find it hard to narrow down to one Heirloom!! I have many from both my grandmother and great grandmother, if I had to choose just one it would be a tossup between the quilt that my great grandmother made and the cast-iron skillets that I ***love***!

    my most treasured heirloom i wear everyday – my great grandmothers wedding band – my great grandparents married in 1918, when my granny turned 25 her mom gave it to her, when i turned 25 she gave it to me and i’ve kept it on my finger ever since. it’s thin and worn, but means more to me than i can say.

    i “liked” crosby & taylor on facebook

    as for what product i would like to find under my tree – i really like the look of the coffee canister, sleek but with some character. i also like the reindeer ornaments and i could give those to 9 different people…well 8 since i will keep one for myself ;o)

    thx for introducing a company with unique items!

    My favorite heirloom would be my Mothers sewing basket. It still has some of her unfinished projects along with some of my things. It also looks beautiful setting out on display.
