My Christmas Presents

I did get some stuff that didn't have anything to do with the 
kitchen but these were some of my favorite gifts.  For a foodie like
me this stuff is seriously cool!  

I've seen Nigella use golden syrup and English mustard and Rachel Allen
makes a mean shortcrust pastry with a tart tin.  I'm going to see if I can 
have some fun with these items too.

And look.... I got some saffron!  My dear husband bought the big
 package too!  What a good husband!!  Now to find the perfect recipe.....

We had this Maldon smoked sea salt on our steaks Christmas Day.
Wow!  It really gave the meat and awesome flavor.  
I want to experiment with all kind of flavored salts.  I'm really 
intrigued by them.

Check out these flavors at Fusion Salt........amazing!  I want to try 
every one of them!

I think I was the only cook without a zester. more!  

I put this little baby on my Christmas list after seeing Nigella, 
Jamie O and Rachel Allen use scales instead of measuring cups.  
It makes sense that weight would be a better measure than anything
else.  We shall see.........

With this present I have shown my extreme patience.   I'm serious!  
This book came out in like October..........  Everytime I saw it I NEVER 
looked inside.  I admit to touching the cover and sighing but I never 
looked inside.  Cross my heart!   I wanted to save the fun for Christmas 
morning.  It was hard but I persevered!  Look how many recipes I found 
to try.........just a few.......  ;)
