Willow House Wednesday - Italian Stitch Platter - Fun giveaway!

See below for giveaway!

Our Mario Batali, Italian Stitch Collection is one of my favorite collections in our catalog.  I love it because of its leather-like look and gender neutral color. See for yourself, it's absolutely gorgeous! What I think is most surprising about this collection is that it is all oven safe!  Yep, you heard right!  You can cook your meal right on the Italian Stitch Platter and bring it right from the oven to the table...and wait for it, wait for goes in the dishwasher too!  Easy entertaining, serving and cleanup!


I put  these olive and sundried tomato palmiers together in a flash.  Here is the quick recipe.

Spread olive tapenade over a sheet of puff pastry (follow box directions for defrosting), top with shredded mozzarella and sundried tomatoes (packed in oil).  Roll jelly roll style until you get to the center of the pastry sheet.  Roll the other side to meet it in the middle and pinch together.  Slice into pieces and brush with a beaten egg.  Spray Italian Stitch Platter with cooking spray and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden brown. 

Here I used the platter for serving some toasted bread and caponata.  I used a bowl I already had that matched really well with the stitching on the platter. Doesn't that look elegant?  Click here for the Caponata Recipe.  

If cooking isn't your thing or you don't want to hide your platter when you aren't using it, check out this idea for a centerpiece.  Put some smooth, colored river stones on your platter and place a pillar candle in the center.  Instant centerpiece!  If you know a man in your life who needs to add some style to his bachelor pad this is a great way to do it!

As you can see, this platter is very versatile and a STEAL for only $32.96!  Host a party and get it for FREE!
