    Wow, that recipe looks super delicious! I’m going to have to make that now! And that baking dish looks like it is super amazing.

  2. Leah B

    That broccoli cheese soups looks really good. Plus, I would love to try and make mac & cheese with this … I have a habit of getting my bechemel/roux too hot = clumps.

  3. Allison C

    This looks yummy and I think would taste great without meat too. I love trying new mac and cheese recipes so I would try their Macaroni and Cheese Casserole recipe.

  4. Heidi

    Hmm.. I haven’t heard of Shirley J whisk Bliss – can’t wait to find it and try it out. I would like the Alfredo sauce. My husband would lobby for the sausage gravy. 🙂

  5. Thesha

    This recipe looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it. I haven’t hear of Shirley J before now, I would have to try the Dessert Creme Double Chocolate. However, I would like to try the Universal Cooking Base as well…you could make so many things so much easier.

  6. jenna N.

    I would make the mac and cheese. I have such a hard time making it that I stopped making it, but it’s one of my favorite foods ever! Also, the Italian herb bread looks fantastic. I love making my own bread, i’d put the whisk mix in all the breads!

  7. Patricia

    I can’t wait to try this recipe – AND I will find the Shirley J sauce mix. I’d also make sausage and gravy with biscuits and scalloped potatoes with ham. The list could go on for pages and I will now search for the mix.

  8. I have always been afraid of making bechemel at home. I’ve made alfredo like once but it took forever so I normally use jars. This bake looks so good, I love that the sauce is a mix, but still just as good as homemade. (for us challenged sauce makers lol) After making this, I would totally try out the Broccoli and Cheese soup recipe from Shirley J!

  9. Lina Kraytem

    WOW! This looks amazing. I would definietly make this for my family, my dad is in love with anything Dijon and I have been looking for recipes with it! Thanks!

    Lina

  10. HRHorne

    Definitely the sausage gravy! I often have cravings for biscuits and gravy and that would be nice to have around 🙂

  11. Kristen

    Unfortunately, this contains dairy that I can’t eat, but my husband would love some sausage gravy over biscuits, so I’d make that for him and drool while he ate it. 🙂

  12. Jackie A

    The Whisk Bliss looks amazing! I’d make the Creamy Broccoli Cheese soup, because that’s my favorite soup but it’s such a pain to make!

  13. Leanna

    I would make macaroni and cheese first. I would try the pasta bake next. There are an endless amount of recipes that this would be great for.

  14. beth

    Ohh, that looks so good. I’m usually too impatient to cook something on the stove and then finish it in the oven. But I also LOVE tasty baked dishes, so maybe I’ll have to actually try this. 🙂

  15. Deanna Call

    Wow! I’m excited to try the different sauces! Making white sauce does not come easy to me! Thanks for the give away!

  16. Casey H

    This is a great giveaway! I love making casseroles as they are easy and can feed me for a week! Can’t wait to try this one

  17. Tracey W

    This looks super easy, and I think i have everything at home already to make it tonight, except for the Whisk Bliss! What could I use instead? (until I can get my hands on some!)

  18. Crystal B

    Pork Chile Verde…hands down. I love a little pico de gallo all rolled up in a tortilla with some yummy shredded pork.

  19. Mandi G.

    What wouldn’t I try? Well, first, your recipe…then the Old World Spaghetti & Meatballs, the Mac and Cheese, and also, I’d try out the gluten free mix! Thanks for the chance!

  20. oh the carrot cake cookies of course, then maybe the key lime dessert squares … oh I can’t get over how good all the desserts sound, maybe I’ll even make a main dish

  21. Ericka G.

    I would make the Cranberry Almond Pumpkin bread — it was the first recipe I saw and I’m taking it as a sign 🙂

  22. Mishelle

    After your recipe I would try the Alfredo Sauce #2… But I’d definately make yours first! 🙂

    Thanks for the chance.

    M

  23. Megan M.

    Oh, that looks so delish! And it could be something I could make, seeing as how I have no clue how to make a roux.

  24. Barbara

    This product sounds like a lifesaver – I can see using it to replace the cream soups in casserole recipes. Personally think I would like to try thr Sausage Gravy recipe. Yum!

  25. Toni S Turner

    I would love to try to make a nice casserole with it as well. Casseroles are pretty easy to make, everyone loves them because they are yummy as all heck, plus, there are always left overs for the next day.

  26. Marin D

    That pasta looks so good. It is only 9 am and I am now starving. LOL. I would definitely make the Broccoli Cheese Soup. I haven’t made a version of it that I like yet.

  27. Katie Cohagen

    I would make the garlic asparagus and pasta with the lemon cream sauce. That sounds amazing! Thanks for the intro to a new product!

  28. Shirley J has a gluten free option, too! Oh, where will I begin? Cheesy potato casserole sounds like a good place to start. Thanks for the intro to what seems to be a great product. Can’t wait to try it out!

  29. Donna

    MMMMM great giveaway!! I’d like to try the Easy Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake but since we are having a seriously major snowstorm/blizzard today, probably would have to go for the broccoli-cheese soup!

  30. Molly Baker- Harris

    I definitely want to make that casserole! Looks delicious and I would love the $400 from William Sonoma! My 40th birthday is coming up soon and that would make a great present!

  31. Jamie K

    Holy cow!! I cannot wait to try this. My family’s favorite dish is Fettucine Chicken Alfredo. I prepare it exactly as you described above with butter, sauce flour, and cream. I am so excited to try Whisk Bliss! Thanks for the chance to win.

  32. Jessica

    I was just in Williams Sonoma last night pining over the Le Creuset dutch ovens. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  33. Anna Capone

    I would definitely make the STOVETOP WHITE CHEDDAR MAC N’ CHEESE. I could eat it because I’m a vegetarian and my boyfriend, the meat eater, would love it too!

  34. Kathy E.

    I’m trying to prepare and eat healthier meals, so I’d try Timeless Grains-Cranberry Almond Breakfast Cookies…they sound so good!

  35. AprilG

    Well first off, this pasta bake sounds AMAZING!! Also looks amazing!! I wish I could make it right now! However, as soon as I get my hands on this product, after the pasta bake, I think I’d give the Alfredo recipe a whirl. I love Olive Gardens Alfredo but can’t seem to create something at home that I like (can’t find a comparison at other restaurants, either). The Whisk Bliss sounds promising though! And so simple!

  36. Carol

    Jenny your casserole looks delicious. The first thing I’d make is a quick macaroni and cheese casserole-one of our comfort food favorites.

  37. Kim Catapano

    That looks so good and I love how quickly it comes together. Other than your pasta recipe, I would make the Cranberry Almond Pumpkin Bread.

  38. Claudia

    So this pasta looks amazing and a great way to incorporate veggies into the mix. From the website I think I would try her Rice Pilaf recipe.

  39. Mindi

    That recipe looks amazing! The Ziplist recipe link is not working though and it’s trying to save another recipe to my recipe box.

  40. Brittni

    This pasta dish looks fabulous! I think the other recipe I would make is the Broccoli Cheese Soup. Not only is it one of my favorite soups, it would be especially perfect on a night like this!

  41. traci severson

    This sounds like it will help me in the kitchen getting dinner on the table much easier after a long day at work!!!

  42. Margot C

    I would make Coconut Curry with Shrimp.

    I have never heard of this stuff and now I must have it! (thank you so much)

  43. Jordan

    I’d love to try the whisk bliss! After your casserole, first thing I’d try is the Stovetop White Cheddar Mac n Cheese 🙂

  44. Chris Bennett

    Thanks for the awesome give away….ShirleyJ sounds like a “must try” product…..can’t wait to get some….Thanks Jenny !!!!

  45. Jeanna B.

    Can’t wait to try the Shirley J Whisk Bliss! I think I would try the Broccoli Cheese soup. Then, the mushroom spinach fettuccine. Both look yummy!

  46. Jen S.

    I would use these products to make chicken alfredo pizza.. it is so nice to see some gluten free mixes as my boyfriend’s mother is allergic to wheat and his youngest brother is gluten intolerant.

  47. Either the broccoli cheese soup or mac and cheese! My husband’s favorite soup is broc-cheese but I love mac and cheese so I’d have to make both 😉

  48. Rosa

    I would make the sauteed shrimp with Italian butter sauce (after your pasta bake, of course!). But it was really hard to pick just one! I was only assuaged after I realized I can make others AFTER this dish. 🙂

  49. Sharry Murawski

    I have never heard of the Shirley J products….but it does sound pretty neat! I love the Williams Sonoma store and we have one in our mall…may favorite place to spend time! And your pasta dish sounds amazing!

  50. Kayley Maybe

    Carrot cake cookies. For sure! Although I love broccoli cheese soup, and my home made versions have not been that good…

  51. Deborah N.

    Definately some alfredo sauce! My kids love it on anything – pasta, pizza, rice. . . the list can go on and on!

  52. Alison

    Your recipe looks delicious and I am going to have to try it. Other than that the cranberry almond bread looks delicious.

  53. Susan

    This pasta bake looks great! SO many things I would make–maybe the cranberry pumpkin bread or choc chip fudge cookies.

  54. Tricia L.

    This Creamy Dijon Chicken & Thyme Pasta Bake looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it! It would be even better if I owned a Dutch Oven! 🙂

  55. Brandy H

    My four year old has fallen in love with carrot cake so I would definitely make the Carrot Cake Cookies for her!

  56. Mary W

    I would use Whisk Bliss to make perfect chicken gravy to serve over mashed potatoes and roast chicken.The recipe is on their site.

  57. Alyssa Eisner

    Definitely Taco Soup! Would be perfect on a cold, windy day like today! Thanks for running the giveaway. I love Williams Sonoma!

  58. Kerry M

    I would make the coconut curry but I would replace the shrimp due to allergies. Love curry but mine always turns out gross!

  59. Jennifer Witt

    I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Shirly J but I haven’t had the chance to try anything. This recipe makes me want to even more. 🙂
    Jen Witt

  60. Shayla

    I would make the alfredo sauce! My kids wont eat meat so there is a lot of pasta happening at our house on a daily basis. It would be nice to mix it up and make a homemade alfredo sauce that im sure will be delish!

  61. BarbB

    I have never heard of this product before – I am going to have to try it out! The Red and White Pasta looks to be right up my alley!

  62. Erika

    I would love to make my own Alfredo sauce! I just don’t like store bought kinds, but I haven’t been able to master homemade cheese sauces yet. Wisk Bliss could probably help me do that!

  63. Emily

    I would go for the sausage gravy! I can’t wait to see how this stuff works!!! I am off to order me some, just in case I don’t win it. 🙂

  64. Jessica P

    I would first make the cream cheese sauce. I have always wanted to try it and by using the whisk bliss, it looks so easy!

  65. Shelley

    Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup w/ Whisk Bliss White Cheddar. It couldn’t be more simple – Whisk Bliss, water & broccoli – how’s that for a fast week-day dinner?

  66. garysgirl

    This recipe looks amazing!! I’m totally pinning it. 🙂 And I’d make those fabulous looking chocolate chip fudge cookies. Yum!! Thank you for having this giveaway. I could really use some new kitchen stuff so I’m hoping I win! :))

  67. Jamie

    Oh man I could make sausage gravy with this, I love that but hate having to make the gravy. I will have to try out Whisk Bliss!

  68. Crissy Shinn

    Amazing Giveaway Gifts. I can’t wait to try the recipe. I’m a sucker for Pasta & Chicken!!! My 2 favorites!!!

  69. M.

    I’m not big on Dijon or peppers, any idea of what I could substitute to add flavor? I can’t wait to try the Whisk Bliss!

  70. Christina Stansbury

    There are a lot of great recipes to choose from, but the first one that caught my eye was for Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies!

  71. Emily

    Oh my goodness! This recipe looks amazing! I can’t wait to try this and the skillet meatballs and noodles in creamy herb sauce!
