The Best KitchenAid Accessory

We’re pasta lovers and for us, the KitchenAid 3-Piece Pasta Roller and Cutter Set is the perfect addition to our KitchenAid stand mixer. We’re amazed by how easy and fun it is to make fresh homemade pasta. And it tastes way better – with only flour, egg, and oil you can make pasta that literally melts in your mouth. This sturdy, well-made stainless steel set is of the quality you’d expect from KitchenAid and includes a pasta roller, spaghetti cutter and fettuccine cutter. We also bought the Norpro Pasta Drying Rack to hang our spaghetti and fettuccine on after cutting it. Buon appetito! Find it at Amazon…

Not Just a Cheese Board

This Bamboo Cheese Board Set is a great all-in-one gift for entertaining! Not only is it an eco-friendly bamboo cutting board but it also has grooves for crackers, two ceramic bowls, and a slide-out drawer with cheese knives, 3 BPA-free slate labels and markers! The four high-quality stainless steel knives/spreaders with bamboo handles are each designed for a different type of cheese and fit nicely into slots in the magnetic slide-out drawer. The ceramic bowls can be used for dips, nuts, or olives and also have their own slots in a second slide-out drawer. The drawers are removable for easy cleaning. We love that everything can be stored together in one place so we don’t have to search for cheese knives or bowls for crackers, etc. and it’s so easy to take outside to the deck or boat or even on a picnic! Also would make a perfect hostess gift! Find it at Amazon…

Best Gift For Cook Olive Tree

Our Beautiful Olive Tree Gift

We think of our gift-givers every time we look at the Arbequina Olive Tree we received as a gift a couple of years ago! We have transplanted it into a gorgeous pot and it lives outside on our deck in full sun. It has flourished with very little maintenance. No olives yet on ours (we procrastinated a bit in transplanting it) but the beautiful shape and delicate leaves make us feel like we’re in Tuscany. This tree will produce edible olives and comes with fertilizer and planting guide. May not ship to all states. Find it at Amazon…

Best Tea Gift

Tea By Mood is Our Favorite Gift For The Tea Lover

The Numi “Tea By Mood” Gift Set makes such a great gift. We love the idea of matching a flavor to your mood – there’s focus, balance, energize, reflect, refresh, invigorate, inspire and sleep. Numi is known for its fair trade certified, organic and non gmo full-leafed teas blended with real fruits, flowers and spices. This gift set of 40 tea bags in 8 different flavors comes in a fun octagonal gift box. It’s such a delicious and thoughtful gift that we gave one to ourselves! Wait until you try Numi’s Jasmine Green – it’s our new favorite. Find it at Amazon…

Best Coffee Grinder Gift

Our Favorite Coffee Grinder

You’re going to love this grinder, so you might as well buy one as a gift and one for yourself. The JavaPresse Manual Coffee Grinder uses ceramic combo burrs that last 5 times longer than stainless steel blades. It gives you more than 18 settings to fine-tune the coarseness you desire. For a french press, about a minute of grinding will make enough grounds for 2-3 cups of coffee. No cord or batteries means you can use it anywhere to get amazing fresh ground coffee. No noise means the household can sleep while you’re grinding. The small size means you can take it with you to work or traveling. “Editor’s Choice” Find it at Amazon…

Gift For Coffee Lover

Our New Favorite French Press

After breaking the glass beaker from our Bodum French Press, we found the sleek, well-designed 34 ounce Coffee Gator French Press. This press makes great tasting coffee – and we’re picky. It’s made of double wall vacuum layered surgical-grade 304 stainless steel, so our coffee stays hot longer (about an hour longer than glass). It’s easy to use, easy to clean, BPA free, and since there is no glass or plastic it means there’s nothing to break! We think it looks cool on our counter and works equally well camping or out on the boat. Bonus: travel coffee canister included. Find it at Amazon.com…

Great Gift For Wine Lover

Over 1,000 Bottles Later…

The Coutale Prestige is the corkscrew we can’t live without (literally)! After 7 years and over 1,000 bottles of wine it’s still great! We’ve tried other brands, but they just don’t compare. The double lever makes it super easy to use without all the fuss of others. We have basic black, but for a memorable gift we’d recommend the handsome rosewood inlay. Find it at Amazon…

Best Decanter Gift Set

The Twist Crystal Decanter Set

After a long day of cooking, every chef wants to come home and unwind with their favorite spirit. Not just a piece of art, The 25oz Kanars 7-Piece Twist Crystal Whiskey Decanter Set comes with six matching 10oz glasses, perfect for a round of Old Fashioneds with friends! Made from ultra-clear lead-free crystal with nicely proportioned heavy weight bases. Perfect gift for anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, or any other special occasion. Comes packaged in a handsome dark blue gift box. Replace that original bottle of whiskey, scotch or bourbon and make a statement with this elegant decanter. Looks even more beautiful in person. Find it at Amazon…

Best Pasta Pot

The Best Pasta Pot

We love this pasta pot! Forget heavy, forget sticking pasta, forget the colander too. The Bialetti Pasta Pot has changed all that. It’s just the right size for cooking a box of pasta, its oval shape allows us to put in a handful of spaghetti without having to break it or stand it up and stir until it softens. The lid locks in with a quick turn and has holes for straining, so no need for a colander. We’ve also used the pot to boil potatoes and cook other vegetables. Nothing sticks, so clean-up is easy. Comes in a variety of colors. Find it at Amazon…
