I had a very nice Christmas, here are some of the things I received from family:
Buddha Bowls! Perfect for eating dinner in front of the tv, though not necessarily what they are meant for.
How to Cook Everything, which I immediately used to find recipes for the Cornish hens and sweet potatoes we had for dinner.
A susbscription to Cook’s Illustrated magazine, and the January issue with the article on dutch ovens. As reported by a few people in the comments of previous posts they rate the Chefmate 5 quart ($40 at Target, not online) up there with a Le Creuset, the only reservation being that the Chefmate is smaller so you need to brown meat in a few extra batches.
