When do you use the thermapen? For checking meats only or in othe cases as well?
I’m going to check out 8×8! Thank you!
I look forward to the book info and am so glad that you did it again this year. It helps to narrow down my choices from the millions of cookbook and food books that are out there.
Elise, I love this list of inspirations—thank you! Especially Jesse’s candles and the literary tour of kitchens. Since you asked I will add one thing that Thanksgiving proved to me I can’t proceed without: An electric knife sharpener. If anyone here has a suggestion for brand, I’m all ears! But after your gorgeous turkey recipe turned out the perfect bird, Elise, I ended up sawing at it with what felt like butter knives. Never again.
Hi Lisa! I have an electric knife sharpener for my knives, but I haven’t used it in years. Every couple months I take my knives to a local guy who sharpens them professionally. He does a much better job than the sharpener.
I’ve been wanting a slow cooker/rice cooker for a long time, but had no idea which to buy. Your helpful advice has pushed me over the brink and I look forward to using my new pot!
I use my Instant Pot all the time and love it. Beans made from scratch (no pre-soaking) in under 40 minutes…can’t beat that!
I didn’t make it past the first suggestion without buying something! Thanks Elise seriously though have been looking for a nice grapefruit candle and am excited to try this one.
I’d be thrilled to the gills to receive or give any of these gifts! Totally unique. Love giving the gift that the person just swoons over when they open. I’m hoping to get a Thermapen but unless I send my husband to this comment section of this blog, it’s not gonna happen. He goes to the Bon-Ton and buys every Tote item they make. It’s like, um, you shouldn’t have dear….and I really mean it! He shouldn’t have.
Oh, I want that pestle and mortar and I already have aperfectly good one.
Great book recommendations — added to my wishlist! :)
Just ordered 3 candles as gifts! Thanks Elise! Can’t wait to smell them.
Thanks, Sally! We’re on it!
Noodle Pie! Now that was a flash from the past!
