Oneida Bakeware for Your Holiday Cooking

What are your favorite things to cook or bake during the holidays? I love to make a cheesy potato casserole, and I like to think that I make a mean green bean casserole as well.

For a long time, I have gotten by using a Pyrex baking collection that I received as a wedding gift. It has served me well. But sometimes, especially around the holidays, I would catch myself longing for a gorgeous bakeware set. Something pretty, sturdy and oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.

Yesterday I received THIS!

Isn’t it gorgeous?!?! It’s the 8 piece Oven Fresh Ceramic Baking Set from Oneida. I may just have looked like a young child at Christmas, when I hurried to open it. I am in love.

This baking set includes:

  • 2 1/2 Qt Baking Dish
  • 1 1/2 Qt Casserole
  • Pie Plate
  • 2 – 4 oz. Ramekins w/Lids

So, the baking dish will hold my cheesy potato casserole perfectly. My green bean casserole will look scrumptious in the 1 1/2 quart casserole and if there are any leftovers, I can store them in the ramekins and place them in my refrigerator. Now what to do about that pie plate? I will admit, I have yet to make a pie. Who wants to send me their favorite pie recipe?

Last night I prepared a side dish in the 1 1/2 quart casserole. There was a bit left over, so I placed the lid on and into the fridge it went. This afternoon for lunch, I heated it right back up in the microwave and then you guessed it, right into the dishwasher it went. I love when the things in my life are low-maintenance!

I can’t wait to use my baking set this Christmas, especially because it is so cheery and red, a perfect Christmas color.

    My favorite thing to make in a casserole dish is Lasagna! It would look super pretty and match this beautiful red cookware perfectly!

    On the pie you should try a pumpkin pie since Thanksgiving is coming up. Only I always recommend that you make it with a real pumpkin. Get a small pumpkin- they are called either a sugar pumpkin or pie pumpkin. Cut it in half and place it in your covered casserole dish with a TBSP or two of water and either bake it for 45 minutes or microwave for 10-20minutes until it is soft. Let it cool and then scoop the meat out of the shell. Blend it in a blender into a smooth pumpkin puree. Then you can make it into the pie filling just like you would a can of pumpkin. If you need a recipe for the filling send me an email.

    Drool! I would love these! And my favorite pie recipe is the one on the back of the Libby’s pumpkin can. Just use individual spices instead of pumpkin pie spice.

  3. Amy Brewer says

    I long for a beautiful set of bakeware myself..Something that will make my Holiday dishes stand out..I really don’t have a pie recipe that isn’t the basic things that are on the pie crust

  4. Annie says

    Oh! How beautiful are those! I don’t really have a favorite dish to bake myself, I am just getting to the “what dish should I bring to the large family gathering” stage. I can’t wait to see what it will be!

  5. says

    What a great giveaway! I love the covered baking dish.
    Now for the Pie plate, I’d say make something like Shrimp & asparagus Quiche in it for an after-thanksgiving Brunch.

  6. Susan P. says

    One of my favorite dishes to bake is Scalloped Potatoes but the way I make them, they are really Potatoes Au Gratin. Maybe it’s like your cheesy potato casserole.

  7. says

    I love cooking for the holidays. My favorite holiday dish to prepare is the turkey and dressing. About 2 months before Thanksgiving I start looking for a new recipe to try. Food Network and magazines! Sometimes the recipe is very traditional and sometimes a little different. And I always include some variation of fruit and nuts.

    This dish set would be perfect for out holiday table :)

  8. says

    My favorite dish at the Thanksgiving is my hubby’s sweet potato casserole. He is a far better cook than I am I have never baked a pie either so I don’t have a recipe to share. lol Thanks for the chance!

  9. says

    My favorite dish that I’m always responsible for bringing to family dinners each Christmas are my creamy & fluffy homemade mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and sweet potato casserole. MMM thinking about them make me HUNGRY!!!

  10. amber says

    I love traditional pumpkin pie homemade with real pumpkin, or canned puree. So delicious! I look forward to it every year :)

  11. says

    Aside from making an awesome turkey (I have a fabulous recipe), and pecan bars, I love making a broccoli, rice and cheese casserole. Everyone raves about it.

  12. Christine says

    Our Thanksgiving dinner will be feature Carved Turkey, Candied Yams, Mashed Potatoes, Vegetable Casserole, Baked Limas and Salad.
    Thanks for the chance!

  13. Mary B says

    I love this set! I’ve been slowly replacing my older pyrex w/ some more colorful serving pieces. These are perfect!

  14. Angel S. says

    I love to make sweet potatoe casserole. We only have it during the holidays and I know my hubby looks forward to it every year.

  15. Jaimie K says

    I love making FUDGE! That’s totally my thing. I also love some wassail or a good ol’ pecan pie.

    Here is a good twist on pumpkin pie (I don’t like regular pumpkin pie):

    And as for the pecan pie:
    1- 9 inch pie crust, uncooked
    3 eggs
    2/3 c sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/3 c butter
    1 c corn syrup
    1 c pecan halves

    Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare pasty. Beat eggs, sugar, salt, butter, and syrup with hand beater. Stir in pecans. Pour into pastry lined pie plate. Bake until set, 40-50 minutes.

    SO YUMMY! :)

  16. Debra Morgan says

    Every cook would love to have this. My cookware is over 38 years old, so I certainly need some updated ones. This would be such a great thing to have.

  17. says

    My cookware is so old…hand me downs from my grandma and on it’s last leg! I would love to serve my killer cheesy mashed potatoes in one of these!

  18. says

    Wow- what a great collection of bakewear!! I am SO in need of this!!
    I am famous for my Pumpkin Cheesecakes during the holiday season- I usually have to make a bunch for our big crazy family!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!! :-)

  19. Brandy E says

    What a beautiful set! Red is my favorite color! The pie plate would be great for making a cheesecake with cherry topping (even if using the cheesecake mid kit from the grocery store). Fast, easy, and beautiful…what more could you ask for!

  20. says

    First things first… The Pioneer Woman – is doing pie week (your in luck) and I fell in love with this recipe which can be found here: I am of the thinking, if the PW loves it — it can’t be half bad! 😉

    Favorite dish for holidays: I love to make a bread pudding — I try a different one each year – like a homage to my very english grandparents and their traditions :)

  21. Amanda says

    I have to be honest in that my husband does most of the cooking, but I do make a mean apple pie with crumble topping.

  22. Yvonne H. says

    My favorite holiday dish is to prepare is a Sweet Potato Casserole, its covered with lots of melted marshmallows, brown sugar and pecans. Its really sweet, but taste so good.

  23. says

    I am so not a cook, that job I try to leave to my husband, but unfortunately it comes back to haunt me. The kids do have to eat. So, I think my veggie loaf would be great to make in this cookware. Thanks!

  24. seki tyree says

    I recently found out my son has medullablastoma which is a form of brain cancer.A bake set would definitely be wonderful and a big help..

  25. Krista Zsako says

    I moved a few months ago and lots all my bake ware… this would be a great thing to win! I like 5 minutes for mom on facebook!

  26. says

    Ooh those are beautiful. My fav dish would have to be the stuffing. Our family makes this delicious mushroom stuffing. Just the thought of it is making me hungry.

  27. says

    Oh how I love to bake and cook! This would make me feel like a child at Christmas too. I love to bake pies! Be sure and check out Taste of Home online for pie recipes. It’s one of my favorite sites for recipes and I get a lot of our pie recipes from their site.

  28. judy brittle says

    We always have meatballs and mushroom gravy to go with all our holiday meals. It makes me feel good that everyone tells me mine are the best.

  29. says

    You don’t have to make pie in that dish, we only make pumpkin pie at our house but our glass pie pan gets regular use for quiches and we also like to make layered bean dip in it. That’s my favorite holiday dish, which I realize might not sound too holiday-ish. But it’s a great appetizer that’s quick and easy to throw together and I bring it to many gatherings because it’s requested by name!

  30. pamela says

    aw cool, i bake a lot, so this would be so nice to have. (i don’t own any ceramic ware, i’m very curious how different it is from baking in metal?) it has to be healthier, that’s for sure!! thank you for such a lovely opportunity!!!

  31. pamela says

    i’m already a subscriber!

    oh, my favorite thing to bake would have to be two things: pumpkin pies and the cauliflower mushroom gaugere. my 5 year old twins devour both and the baby just LOVES it all as well, despite it going through the blender, lol :)

  32. Nancy B from Many LA says

    What a pretty set!
    My favorite dish is oyster dressing, but my hubby makes that. I’ll make baked macaroni.

  33. Eileen says

    My favorite Holiday dish to prepare is meatballs. My family begs for them and I make a whole roaster full for my extended family Christmas party. My mom makes the BEST pies ever and she’d love that gorgeous pie plate. I love the color! I would be just like you opening great servingware too…better than diamonds!

  34. Lindsey F says

    Love this! One of my favorite holiday recipes is pumpkin cheesecake. :) And a pie recipe: I don’t make pies a lot but they’re so easy to throw together especially if you buy premade pie crusts and canned/frozen fruit! Try one! And you should at least try a quiche, they are so good with veggies, cheese, and a bit of leftover ham or turkey.

  35. Elaine says

    I am known for my cornbread stuffing, but having a dish to bake it in is something else. I would love to serve it in red baking dish. So pretty!

  36. Lori Barnes says

    Melt 8oz of Velveeta with 1 can of Cream of Mushroom together. Pour over top 1lb. of thawed broccoli (nuke it). Add Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese over the top. Then crush 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers together with one stick of melted butter. Spread on the top. Bake until bubbly and brown.

  39. says

    Oh boy, oh boy! This one is right up my alley! I am one of those that DOESN’T mind when her S.O. buys kitchen items for birthdays and Christmas! I really like the red, too .. I love that dishes are getting so colorful; I always have an eclectic mix of bright colors on the table. I think .. actually, I know .. I would definitely use the baking dish for my mac and cheese. I wish I had a pie recipe that I really liked to send, but for pies, I usually go over to Amish country and buy them! LOL!


  40. says

    I wish I had a good pie recipe to share with you. Maybe I’ll have to get a copy of my favorite pecan pie recipe and share with you! As far as my favorite holiday dish, I’m not sure I have one. Usually I get asked to take a veggie tray to our family get-togethers so I haven’t had the chance to try different things. I really want to start some traditions this year with food. I absolutely love baking and cooking and this bakeware set is so awesome! Hoping to try new traditions in a pretty red set! 😀

  41. says

    I’m known for my sweet potato casserole and carrot cake =) sorry, I’ve never made a pie either, but I use my pie plates for quiche, so you may try that?!

    LOVE the pretty red… not only would they be beautiful for Christmas, but would go with my southwestern-decorated home year-round!!

  42. says

    Being Puerto Rican, we have various traditional holiday dishes that are not common to the American culture. However, over the years, I’ve been incorporating other dishes such as my husband’s macaroni pie (kind of like mac & cheese) which would be perfect in that baking dish. And the pie plate could be used to make pumpkin cheesecake!

  43. says

    My favorite holiday recipe is my Danish Cardamon cookies. They are a hit whenever I take them to a pot luck.

    As for the pie plate, I have a pryex pie pan that I use to make pizza puffys. I got the recipe from the book Practically Green.

  44. Sarah Morgan says

    These are so awesome!! I am just like you and use my old Pyrex stuff. I would kill for some new baking dishes!! And these would look so good in my kitchen!

  45. dove42 says

    I have always wanted mathing beautiful bakeware. But as a newly wed I had the hodgepodge set and then children and work and everything came first now i’m a grandma who , according to my grandchildren, is a prettt good cook and I’d love the presentation of my meals match the taste of them.

  46. says

    Oh…gorgeous set! I love to make pies!!! Our favorite ones are Lemon Meringue Pie and Pumpkin Pie! I would love to share… the Lemon Meringue is from Alton Brown’s cookbook…and directions are different from the one he has posted on the food network..the directions from book make it turn out better. The pumpkin pie is my hubby’s nana’s and it’s scrumptious…I’ll go ahead and email you them!!!

  47. says

    I don’t have a favorite dish anymore, since 4 of my kids were diagnosed with Celiac. So I am trying to come up with new favorites. This set would certainly help me come up with some great new dishes.

  48. says

    Such a stunning set! My favorite pie recipe is, without question: Lemon Meringue Pie! It is not a traditional one for this time of year, but it is a hot fave in our family, so its our tradition!

  49. Rosemary Brown says

    I like you on Facebook, and I would get a lot of use out of these. They look like they would save lot of time for a busy mom thats for sure.
