Twas the Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas and the elves are exhausted but Erin and CK can’t wait to get started! For kitchen gadgets galore were bestowed on their heads and there are more brownies, and pastas, and people to be fed.

Santa was definitely kind to “Erin Cooks” this year (I think it was the cookies). I can’t wait to test out dishes from my cookbooks, try to break my bread making curse with the help of a new bread machine, and whip up some silky smooth soups with the assistance of a handy dandy immersion blender. Now where I’m going to store all of these items remains to be seen. If you come over for dinner I suggest opening any closets very very slowly just in case. I have a feeling that potato ricer packs a mean punch. What was your favorite kitchen gift this holiday season?

Dear Santa:  I'm Glad You Liked the Cookies!
