Winter Warmers with Pyrex {Giveaway}

 **Giveaway is now closed **
Winner is Mademoiselle Slimalicious

We’re half way through winter in Aussie-land. I don’t mind winter. I really quite enjoy it – well except for the associated colds and flu that come with the season.
One great part of winter is dinner-time. Warm casserole’s and oven baked dishes. Food which is too heavy for the hotter months, but perfect on these cold ones. I shared our Shepherd’s Pie recipe last week, which is a winter warming favourite in our home.

What better way to cook-up some winter yumminess, than in Pyrex glassware? Yes, I’m going to tell you about the fabulousness of Pyrex now. I truly love using this glassware and have done so, for years.

With it’s clean design, endless versatility and excellent quality, Pyrex is a household name.
• Ideal for use in oven, microwave, fridge and freezer
• Bake, serve and store in the same dish
• Does not stain or retain food odours
• Easy to clean and dishwasher safe
• Long-lasting durability

I bought my first Pyrex 14 piece Bake and Store Set, about 5 years ago.

Personally, I love that I can bake something and then store the leftover in the same dish by just popping the lid on (and storing in the fridge). No need for cling wrap. And since my fridge isn’t huge, with the strong plastic lids, I can stack things on top.

With thanks to World Kitchen, I have a Pyrex 14 piece Bake and Store Set valued at $69.99 to giveaway to a lucky Samelia’s Mum reader.

  12. I would make apple crumble, and maybe canneloni

    ReplyDelete
  13. Given my current state of "pregnancy-induced-unable-to-handle-raw-food-ness" - it's hard to say what I would cook! However, lasgane works perfectly in Pyrex. And perhaps chow mein or tuna mornay :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. My husband is the cook in the family so I would get him to make his famous chicken and leek pie! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would make my famous cannelloni. Love these pyrex bake and store they are fantastic

  16. I'd definitely bake winter comfort foods that the whole family can enjoy, such as pasta bakes, lasagne, and moussaka!

  19. we love our Spanish Tucker so a nice wholesome Paella or roast Roast Chicken and Vegetable Empanadas all served with spicy baked potato and broccoli side serve

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, this would be perfect for all the new healthy recipes that I have been wanting to try! I am starting a new healthy eating plan & want to cook in advance to stop the takeaway cravings when I don't feel like cooking. These would be PERFECT for filling the freezer!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'd be baking something to please everyone: a Vegetarian Lasagne, a Chicken & Vegetable Pie, a Red Wine Beef Casserole and for desserts an Apple & Rhubarb Crumble and a Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh the dish I made tonight would be perfect for this, it was a belly warming tuna and vegie pie with a crusty potato mash topping. I could grill it in the pyrex and without transferring it, store any leftovers in the fridge. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love this Pyrex set :-) I would try out an Apple crumble and a lasagne yum!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hearty beef and vegie pies, chicken and pasta boscolia , ricotta and vegetable lasagna! Fried rice, and lots of different soups to freeze when I won't feel well enough to cook because my hub can really only cook spaghetti Bol - I'd be sick of that after 2 nights

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love pyrex too and am slowly converting bake ware to pyrex. I love the ease of lasagnes and pasta bakes that can be made in the dish, frozen then reheated all in one dish!!! please pick me :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lasagne, Apple rhubarb and pear crumble, Chocolate self saucing pudding (or perhaps butterscotch). I could go on and on. I love pyrex, no need for covering left overs with anything disposable.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Just discovered a recipe for Chicken and Spinach Lasagne
    Perfect for a hungry family on a cold Winter's evening!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would bake a 'tian provencal'. It is a layered, baked vegetable dish originating in Provence in the south of France. It's quite similar to a gratin except for the fact that it does not include bread crumbs or cheese. Baking it in a clear dish like these pyrex items would ensure that the beauty of the layers is enjoyed along with the taste.

  29. Sounds delicious. I must go and Google!

  30. My kids love spag bol and would happily eat if every night.

  31. I would create chicken pasta bake, apple and rhubarb crumble and lots of cottage pies. I love the pyrex range and I love to cook with it. The plastic lids are brilliant and I would love to add to the two pieces I have in my cupboard at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If I won the 14 piece pyrex bake and store set I would firstly make a lasagne, in my opinion the best meal to bake and store. Then I'd make a beef rendang, yum. Of course some sweets would have to be included, so I would opt for anzac bikkies for the kiddies and a caramel slice for hubby & I.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a great giveaway! My 17 year old son wants to be a chef so I think we would make his favourite - lasagna and maybe one of my favourites - cheesy potato bake. Yummm! Not sure there would be leftovers to store though!

    1. My 6 year old wants to be a chef ... Or a food critic. Too much Masterchef influence I think.

      Love cheesy potato bake!!

      Delete
  34. Awesome giveaway - everyone loves pyrex! I would bake lots of freezable meals like roasted vegetable lasagne, chicken and vege bake with a parmasen and macadamia crust or the kids favourite pasta bake!

    ReplyDelete
  35. me wants them!!! lol I see many lasagnes in my future, followed by apple crumble. Shephard's pie is on the list along with homemade museli bars and potato bake. not altogether of course. oh and cinnamon swirls, pyrex means I can rewarm them in the same dish.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Anything yummy I can bake in bulk, freeze & then take for lunches at work - stir-frys, casseroles, pasta dishes. The $2 can of soup is just not making the grade this winter!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love that these can go in the freezer. My hubby works away so it will behandy to freeze meals to have when he is not hime

    1. Yes mine works away too, and yes sometimes it's easy to just make a little extra to freeze and then eat with the kids when the hubby is away.

      Good Luck!

  38. Love the idea of using less cling wrap. I would make lasagne or other pasta type dishes...anything that is even better when reheated!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. All the hearty, delicious meals I currently cook, that stick to your insides, warming from the inside out. Only now I'll have the best containers to store the copious amounts I cook! For the life of me, I can not cook 'just enough' or a small portion, being raised European it's inbuilt to cook up a storm!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would have to have some Cauliflower Cheese. The kids always expect to find it in the fridge when they visit. Then I'd make all sorts of dishes that could be easily reheated. That would leave more time for sewing ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would bake a steaming hot lasagne oozing with mince, bechamel sauce and cheese, and baked to a golden goodness!

    ReplyDelete
  42. OHh... I would make and store lots of Chillies, gumbos, and lasagnas!!! This would be a blessing from God!

    ReplyDelete
  43. It would have to be a Apple Crumble. With some Custard to go with it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Mouthwatering Lasagne; macaroni cheese, self-saucing puddings...The list is endless...
    Recall my Mum telling me over & over as a child that nothing compared to Pyrex. Must say I agree wholeheartedly.

    ReplyDelete
  45. This beautiful set would inspire me to be better at planning and preparing ahead of time. My picks would be vegetable lasagne; baked salmon; roasted vegetables to serve with any meat or fish; and some soups like minestrone and carrot and lentil soup.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Have you seen the Once a Month Mom series? May not be called that, but I'd love to cook up a ton of food once a month so most of our meals are sorted. This hot set would make me better at this fo sho.

  47. I'd have HOT TUNA in HUMBLE PIE. MEATLOAF with SMASHING PUMPKINS, sprinkled with SALT N PEPA and a touch of RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

  49. Pyrex is fabulous cookware and the red lids would brighten a kitchen. I'd make a delicious lasagna, creamy macoroni and cheese, golden sweet potato pie, vegetable and cheese bake, plus heaps more. Being busy as a volunteer and a mature-aged student I like to prepare meals in advance and in larger quantities. Leftovers make great lunches.

  50. Apple and pear pie would be our first choice,
    vegetable and egg pizza would be next choice,
    fried rice and garlic prawns come next.
    cakes, muffins and bread pudding will be the best.
