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. My most treasured heirloom is my grandmother’s gold pocket watch & chain. It almost feels like a warm hug around my neck and I catch myself constantly running my fingers over the smooth surface as if I can “touch” her somehow through its’ surface. Strange I know, but very comforting in an odd sort of way!

  2. I would love the Bird Ceramic Canister Set in Pistachio.

  3. The most treasured heirloom I’ve received is… not an item, but the memories I have made with my family.

  4. As far as what I would most wanted to find under my tree? the Fleur De Lys Cups!

  5. I’d love to have the “coffee” coffee scoop – no room for error.

  6. The crepes look beautiful, as do the measuring spoons. My most treasured heirloom is a ruby ring my mother found in my grandmother’s possessions after she died. It is very unique and turns out to be a Victorian child’s ring. It is a wonderful connection to my mother’s and grandmother’s heritage.

  7. My grandmother’s canisters (flour, sugar, etc.). They were given to her by my grandpa on their 25th wedding anniversary. I can never part with them.

  8. One of my most treasured heirlooms is a crocheted hostess apron that belonged to my great grandmother. I have it framed and hanging in my dining room. I was just a little girl when she passed away and everytime I see this I think of her.

  9. I’m a FB fan!

  10. Is it strange that you had me at “Nutella” rather than “giveaway”? Those looks delish!

    My most treasured heirloom is a Halloween rattle that belonged to my mother as a child. It has a black cat face on it and I have loved it since I was small.

  11. I would love to win a set of those! They are very pretty. One of my aunts gave me a sterling tea service many years ago. Of course, it is hidden away in the attic now, but it still is very special to me.

  12. I am a fan of Crosby and Taylor on Facebook!

  13. a beautiful watch that was my great-grandmother’s. doesn’t tell time, but amazingly beautiful and very much treasured.

  14. love the coffee canister on their website.

  15. Their things are beautiful! Thanks for the chance. My favorite heirloom is my Grandmother’s Sugar and Creamer Set. Great Giveaway!

  16. My grandmother’s china is my most treasured heirloom.

  17. Pat Wogan says:

    Probably my favorite heirloom is an urn left to me by my father. I have visited the website of Crosby and Taylor, and like Paula Deen, I love the green canister set.

  18. My most treasured heirloom is my mom’s apple blossom tea cup. Not many things have been passed down through our family and since I’m the youngest, I get the last pick of things. My mom let me pick out one of her tea cups that she had been collecting since she was young and it is now one of my most valued possessions.

  19. I’m a fan of Crosby & Taylor on Facebook! Their products are so beautiful!

  20. I would love to see the Fleur de Lys measuring spoons with display strip under my Christmas tree this year. I love how each spoon has a different design for the handle. Makes it look like the set was pieced together.
