Christmas Wishes - What to Get the Cook on Your List


I do most of my Christmas shopping online as I like to sit in my fuzzy pink robe and faux fur-lined slippers and pick out gifts for family and friends.  I could go shopping at the mall in my fuzzy pink robe, but I am sure I would get a few funny looks.  With one day left on Amazon's Free Super Saving Shipping*, I decided to put together a list of my favorite kitchen supplies, utensils and cookbooks.  If you still need the ideal present for the culinary aficionado on your list, here are a few ideas for you to choose from.  Some may not look very glamorous, but any cook would be delighted to get a gift from this list.

A Christmas Wish List for Cooks

1.  Heavy duty mixing bowls - perfect for tossing salads, mixing up cookie batter, or whisking vinaigrette





2.  KitchenAid mixer - of the things that can be beaten, blended, and whipped with this classic mixer





3.  Heavy duty half sheet pans - nothing beats good quality sheets for baking cookies and brownies





4. A good nonstick saute pan with lid - a kitchen necessity






5.  Cookie scoop - ideal for making professional looking cookies





 
6.  Wok - Makes quick stir fry dinners a breeze to prepare





7.  Ice cream maker - whip up a chilly summer treat in no time at all





8.  Metal measuring cups - all measuring needs





9.  Metal measuring spoons - for a pinch of that or a teaspoon of this





10. America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook - my go-to cookbook





11. Classic bakeware - serve dinner with a little style


12.  A Year in Provence - all cooks love to read about food
