I received some very nice foodie-related books and gifts this year:
In addition to these lovely new books, I received a Cuisinart immersion blender, which I’ve already used for potato soup, partly pureeing it right in the pan. No more trying to slop hot soup into the blender or food processor!
And tucked into my stocking on Christmas morning with the candy and lotions was this cute little bottle of Wood Homestead maple syrup from a New York City farmer’s market:
My best blogging-related gift was my brand-new, lightweight, high-speed MacBook Air, which made writing this post a much less frustrating experience than working on my old, hand-me-down MacBook (much as I did love it, originally!)
I’m looking forward to using all my new stuff in the coming year. Happy 2014 and Happy Weekend Cooking!
