Santa DH was very very good to me this year He gave me a 13-piece set of Calphalon cookware, which came with a BONUS 10-QUART DUTCH OVEN - criminy, we're only two people! (I think we're going to try to sell it on craigslist and use the money toward the Le Creuset Dutch oven I really want.) He also gave me an iPod Touch; a Celtic knot pendant; "The Best International Recipe: A Home Cook's Guide to the Best Recipes in the World," from the American Test Kitchen; the sequel to the book "Wicked"; a set of Le Creuset berry-shaped stoneware dishes; and a set of 4-oz. (or so) Le Creuset ramekins.

I also received a paella pan complete with saffron, short-grain rice, and Spanish olive oil; a fundraiser cookbook from a senior center where my dad lives; a bottle of roasted garlic olive oil; and a Le Creuset baking dish. After being in the hospital five times in the past year, I guess people felt I needed some cheering up So I'm a very happy cook this year

Merry Christmas, everyone

CherryRed, I love the shirt!

I got a 12" skillet with a lid, a George Foreman grill, a stand mixer, a jewelry box (my boyfriend admitted last night that he was thinking about putting a ring in there and proposing that way, but he didn't), a video game, and plenty of candy from my boyfriend. Our families mainly gave us cash, so we're planning on buying a Wii with it if we can find one.

What is it about those measuring cups, Katie? Maybe it's the cool handle but whatever it is, I have quite a few, including the 4qt I recently got. I actually have so many because my sons like to use them as cereal bowls!

I've never heard of Rada knives but I'll be looking for them now.

Santa was very good to me also. I got a new office chair, 4 cookbooks, RAM for my computer, a cute little portable USB drive, and a new digital camera.

Oh man, this is so not funny when this happens. Here's a hint - black Sharpie marker. It may not match perfectly but it will definitely be better than the bleach spots.. I hope this isn't all Santa left you.

No kitchen gadgets. Have everything I need. Flat screen TV, wireless laptop & extra battery, cordless phone/answering machine, suede coats (tan & steel grey), and suede jackets...


(The color is more like Lapis Blue)



(To match my boots)


(Cause girls just wanna have fun, lol)

The people that I am closest to, I much prefer spending time with - getting together for lunch etc. No gifts are necessary.

Aluminum sheet pans, ladle set, strainer, pizza pans, All Clad 2qt saucier w/lid, Calphalon 8qt DO....ummmm...olive oil........and a Lodge grill pan.

The smallwares were from BigTray.com. Don't let the prices fool you, they are great quality as long as you can sacrifice looks.

A new couch sounds like a great gift! I love my slip-covered couches and my leather one. Great for pets (and perpetually dirty little boys).
