  2. Melissa R

    I voted for the picky palate. I think the first think I would make is a nice potroast with mashed potatos and carrots.

  3. Kelly Clark

    As of right now, I’m hungry and craving chicken n dumplings so that’s what I’m planning on making πŸ™‚

  4. Stephanie

    I voted this morning:) Your site is fantastic – I started coming here because of blog. Love all the sweets and great ideas!

  5. I voted for you today! The first thing I would make would be your spaghetti pies – they sound so yummy!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I voted. I would probably make some kind of soup or stew, since that is what I have been in the mood for lately

  7. chris

    I was able to vote for you today (wouldn’t go through the other day).

    Hmmm, first dish I will prepare . . . tough one. Given the weather, I’d say a big pot of stew.

  8. Danielle G

    The first things I’ll make in my brand new BHG cookware are pancakes for the husband and scrambled eggs with extra cheese for me!

  9. Debbie R.

    Just voted for the day – good luck! First dish I would prepare would be mac and cheese! Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!

    1. Debbie R.

      Jenny, sorry – had gotten an error on my posting – didn’t realize the first one took! Please delete this one if you can!

  10. Courtney C.

    Voted for you, of course. Love your blog – I would probably make a big pot of spaghetti and some delicious meat sauce for my big family first!

  11. Megan Johnson

    Hey Jenny,

    I voted for you! I also “like” Picky Palate on Facebook. The dish I would make if I would be have to be a tangy pecan crusted chicken with creamy mashed potatoes and crisp asparagus. Thanks for always having amazing recipes!

  12. I’ve voted a few times now. Hope you win! I’ve been craving some sort of jambalaya concoction, now that it’s getting cold, so that’s what I’d make first!

  13. Melanie

    Good luck! I’ll try to vote everyday til the end! The first meal I would cook would probably be a yummy shrimp scampi to surprise my parents for all the help they’ve given to my family lately!

  14. Stephanie

    I voted again! And I forgot to say before, but I would definitely make a fall-ish soup in the cookware. The weather has been perfect for soup/stew lately!

  15. Just voted! The first dish I would make would use that big ol’ pot to start layering some flavors for my turkey sausage, potato and asparagus soup. Nothing like soup in the fall!

  16. Every morning to go to check my email and the first thing I do is check to see if I have a new email from you! And when I do I’m SOOOO excited!

  17. Mary Bullard

    I voted today!!! I would use every single dish. I’m a stay home mommy of 5 that uses menu’s and shopping lists. So every pot and pan would be used with either a pasta, or a sauce, a veggie or 2 or most likely, breading and brown chicken for the pasta dish. It would be nice to finally have some decent pots and pans. Love your blog!

  18. Heather

    I would make pasta sauce in mine. Or maybe chili.. or maybe tacos. Or.. oh heck, I don’t know what I’d make first. I’ll have all the burners going and a pan/pot on each one. TGFF (Thank Goodness For Freezers!) πŸ˜€

  19. I follow Picky Palate all over the place. And I’d sure love to cook in a new BHG set! It’s perfect soup time in Minnesota πŸ™‚ We’re about to get snow!

    1. Brooke

      forgot to add the dish that I would make…. probably would make a fun gourmet meal to “test” it out! Thanks for all the YUMMY recipes that you share (and the easy factor too!) πŸ™‚

  20. Melissa Ventura

    Good Luck! I voted and will vote everyday. I am a teacher and will ask all of the other teachers to vote as well! πŸ™‚ I would make fried chicken. πŸ™‚

  21. Jodi Cheung

    Good luck, Jenny! Your recipe is delicious. We had it for dinner last week. I would love to make a nice, big pot of chicken and dumplings — just what the doctor ordered for this nasty sinus infection I’m battling!

  22. Tina Rhodes

    Your recipe really does rock. I even made it as one large dish in a 9×13 pan. Wonderful!! The first thing I would fix would be a decent fried egg. My cookware is not non-stick and every egg sticks!!! Frustrating!!

  23. Rachel B.

    I voted for you! The first dish I would probably cook would be ham + potato soup and grilled veggie sandwiches.

  24. Ginger

    I’d love to have some new cookware — great incentive to get in the kitchen! πŸ™‚

    I’d have to try that really great sounding chicken noodle soup that I just found! πŸ™‚

    Voted again today! Made your chicken chilli with leftover chicken for supper on thursday! Sooo good! Could use some new POTs to cook it up in next time!

  29. Paula

  30. Jill

    I will probably make a big pot of soup. That big pot will be a quick warm up for my family on the cold evenings ahead.

  31. Amanda S.

    Voted for you! The first meal I’d make would probably be an eggs, sausage, and potato breakfast. Its hard to make now because the eggs stick to the pan!

  32. Holly

    Voted! Yay!

    Would probably cook an old fashioned family meal of fried potatoes with onions, black eyed Peas, green beans and home made chicken tenders.

  33. Stephanie

    I voted for you! The first thing I would make is garbanzo chili! I would make a few to freeze too! Easy dinners for later! Good luck!!!

  40. aiketchum

    I voted for you. If I were to have to choose one thing to make in te pots and pans I think it would be stir fry. I absolutely love it. But then there are all the pastas…

  41. Carol Kerber

    I voted! Good luck! A dish I’d love to make in those new pots and pans is Chicken-Butternut Tagine. I love butternut squash!

  43. I gave you my vote, and will every day until the end!!! Let’s hope you can pull up a win from behind!!

    I’d love to have a big pot to cook the vegetable curried stew that is soooo good from the Biggest Loser Cookbook. You’ll have to try it if you haven’t, it’s fantastic!

  44. Maria

  48. Carissa

    I voted for you again today! Yesterday I forgot to say what I would make with the new pots and pans. I would definitely make some soup, maybe some corn chowder or something, because it’s cold here!

  49. I voted for you. What fun! I’m pretty sure the first think I would make would be a big pot of soup since the weather is getting colder. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

  50. Jenny Sump

    I voted for you! I desperately need this new cookware as I recently ruined my skillet by leaving it empty on the stove with the stove still on πŸ™ The first dish I would make is jumbalaya!
