Not Martha

Christmas loot

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.

    I’m with Laura. If I had to throw away every cookbook except one, this would be the one I would keep.

    Cool bowls, too!

    I agree with Laura. I love How to Cook Everything. I used my first copy so much, the binding broke!
    I’ve also got a thing for bowls. Thanks for the link.
    Have a happy and healthy New Year!

    Those buddha bowls look gorgeous :) That cookbook looks worth wishlisting as well :)

    You have a lovely site! Ever since Cook’s recommended the Target dutch oven, finding one has been a challenge!

    Happy New Year!

    How to Cook Everything is my favorite cookbook, it has everything. My dad just bought his first home and I gave him a copy for Christmas.
