Buongiorno miei amata amici!

I declare, I am passionate about my Italian legacy. When browsing the CSN website, an amazing site that offers over 200 stores and presents modern dining room furniture, dinnerware (even Italian), toys, etc…I was delighted to find a Lasagna Pan. One of our newer family traditions, we are attempting to establish this last year, is to have a Sunday Dinner with family that consists of either Lasagna or Manicotti.

The more I cultivate my Italian roots, the further I grow pleasure in it. Fresh foods have touched our palates and our family’s taste buds find irresistible this rich heritage. We cannot return to our former life, before a touch of Italy permeated our home. It is no longer an option.

So what does one choose when they receive a gift card to an extraordinary store that has countless selections? For me the answer is a given. You can locate me in the kitchen section browsing for either Italian decor or items that will facilitate my Italian cooking! Why do I consider CSN for my shopping needs? First, because they PROMISED me that if we need any customer service, we will speak to somebody in the USA. Hooray for CSN!!! Two thumbs up for those who have customer service in the USA or Canada! Second, according to their site: "We guarantee your absolute satisfaction - 100% of the time."

So no surprise when CSN contacted me to perform a giveaway for them that I am mesmerized with this Lasagna Pan! I envision my family sitting around the table while Chef Bretto serves his first delicious Lasagna with a gleam of pride on his face. This Italian Countryside Dinnerware by Mikasa is speaking my language. They have soup bowls that could surrogate for pasta bowls too. This is essential since our family now consumes an abundance of soup and pasta.

The espresso cups are charming and the cappuccino cups have me whisking Amaretto Crème in the recesses of my mind's eye. CSN and Mikasa have brought me one-step closer to living my Italian dream!
