      oh you got some goodins...
      onion&fig jam
      IG's Foolproof

      from World Market received an apron that I'll keep as it's funky cute. also from same store a small paperback soup cookbook and after looking at the TOC, the soups aren't my taste and wouldn't make "seared scallop lime infused cilantro" soup ever.

      you know let's keep it real. we can't keep everything we receive just because...there's gotta be room and desire - I'm jus sayin

        Garlic rocker, for the aging hands. It works wonderfully!
        Wilton waffle stick pan, we're trying it in the morning.
        batter dispenser, a surprise, and who wants to spoon pancake/waffle batter somewhere?
        salt/pepper grinder set, which I admired while on vacation earlier this year
        Michael Symon's "Carnivore" yesssss I am so making sausage!
        gift card to The Toy Store, aka Sur La Table
        Habanero maple syrup, reference waffle sticks above - that will be a definite A.M. wakeup
        Key Lime Marmalade - tried some with toast, so good - going to use some with a little [non habanero] maple syrup on chicken thighs next week
        a Cuisinart mini processor, to replace my mom's original - it died after many years of heavy use about a month ago.

        All in all, a good food oriented Christmas

            You can infuse syrups and honeys with chiles and so on. Fabulous! I really like to infuse honey with chipotle chiles especially.

              The friend who gifted this buys syrups from them at a suburban Minneapolis farmers market. [She also insures them. !


              It's got a good kick, but not a wild one. I went ahead and made the sauce with this syrup and the key lime marmalade referenced in my post for chicken the other day - YUM. It also makes the waffle sticks sing.
