My wife got me a very cool set up Japanese dishes and severing platters. I can't wait to do a dinner for friends with the new stuff.

I got a timex mini clock in the stomach of a mini mixer, cute (from my three sons). no food related gifts this year, just encouragement to open a shop. (blessing or curse?)

best gift gotten, "Me talk pretty one day" by david sedaris.

best gift given out to my mom who said she didn't understand the ingredients
"French Laundry Cookbook" go figure! ( I may get that one back!)

At Christmas I get to buy myself the nicest stuff! I got a programmable electric pressure cooker, a rice cooker, and an electric hot water dispenser. Now I need a new section of counter to put all the toys on...

Another party, another present: Mastercook. Can't wait to try it out. I don't dare install it tonight, too afraid I'll spend the night playing with it.

Nicko,

If you need Japanese recipes let me know, I have a passion for Japanese food and Japanese dishware, think I could open my own shop with all the stuff I have....

Seattle Deb, you must be more of a chocoholic than I! I didn't think it was possible. Looks like you'll be sitting pretty for awhile with all those stocking stuffers.

I am jealous of your chocolate collection Deb. I always say you can never have too much chocolate. Enjoy them! The only chocolate I got was a mix for raspberry chocolate hot chocolate.


Enjoy the Larousse it's really a great book. Lots of history in it.

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas or Chanukah or Turkey day. What did you find under the tree? Lumps of coals or presents. I hope everyone got a cookbook or two.


I was very happy to find among other things Professional Baking and Think like A Chef under the tree.

I got my Kitchen Aid mixer for Chanukah. My husband got DSL internet service (still fiddling with it, though, as it won't work yet.

Are you enjoying your KitchenAid Mezzaluna? What a great machine it is. Makes me happy just to see mine on the counter.

Yes, Sisi, I adore it. I don't get to use it as often as I'd like, but I feel a cheesecake coming on...

And there's that reine du Saba I've always wanted to make, too. I've been working in retail, and it's extremely slow in January. I may have more time to use it now than I've had since I got it. But the downside is I won't have as much money to spend on things like Scharffen Berger!

Maryeo, I'm greener (with envy) than those idiotic jumping thingies in your post! The tools seem to have gone to a good home. Wish I could be there to try the products of your frenzy!
