Sharon Anderson at Three Many Cooks says if you ask for one thing for Christmas this year it should be a dutch oven. "It allows me to make everyday soups and tomato sauces, deeply-flavored stews, and impressive braises," writes Sharon. "I cook pasta in it, I bake bread in it, I turn it into a double boiler. My Dutch oven’s heavy bottom and even heat conduction make it perfect for stirring up creamy risotto or polenta, making homemade pudding, or creating my own caramel sauce."
Jonny Seponara-Sills at We Are Never Full heartily recommends "Food & Friends: Recipes and Memories from Simca's Cuisine" by Simone Beck. "The culinary memoir has to be one of my favorite genres of both cookbooks and books in general," writes Jonny. "Combining anecdotes, family history and delicious recipes, and spanning literature and cuisine, there’s really nothing better than a cookbook that you can actually read."
Carol Ramos at The Pastry Chef's Baking is baking up a storm of goodies that she expertly packages into colorful cellophane packages and ships off to friends and family.
Christina Masters at The Rowdy Chowgirl says she received a surprisingly precious gift of grass-fed hamburger from her friend's farm.
Whatever cool gift you find, or whichever dazzling concoction you make in your kitchen to wrap up in bright bows, remember there is only one thing that counts: Give it with love. Because that's all that anyone really wants, anyway.
Enjoy the gift of giving!
