Valentine’s Day 2017 Gift Guide For The Cook

My Valentine’s Day 2017 Gift Guide For The Cook showcases a few pieces from the Le Creuset line of enameled cast iron cookware and bakeware.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide For The Cook

Here are six lovely pieces from the Le Creuset line of enameled cast iron cookware and bakeware that any cook would be sure to love. Shown here in the Hibiscus pink shade, most of these pieces are also available in a wide range of other gorgeous colors, as well, if pink isn’t your cup of tea.

This beautiful Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron 5-1/2-Quart Round French Dutch Oven in Hibiscus pink is the statement piece that anchors the entire Le Creuset line, in my opinion. I love my dutch oven, which I have in another color, but would adore this one, too. ::swoon::

An indispensable piece is the Stoneware Covered Rectangular Casserole dish (12.5 by 8.5-Inch), in Hibiscus pink. I have several Le Creuset casserole dishes in various sizes and they clean up like a dream! Freezer, oven and microwave safe, too.

On my list to acquire is this Le Creuset of America Signature Cast Iron Handle Saucepan (1-3/4-Quart) in Hibiscus pink. This would be a workhorse piece in my kitchen!

If you’re a tea drinker, who could resist boiling your water in this Le Creuset of America Enamel on Steel Demi Tea Kettle (1-1/4-Quart) in Hibiscus pink? Gorgeous!

Or, maybe you would rather press your coffee in this charming Le Creuset of America Stoneware Petite French Press, (12 oz) in Hibiscus pink.

And finally, whether you drink coffee, tea, or just want to make a brownie in a mug, you’ll need this beautiful Le Creuset of America Stoneware Mug, (12-Ounce) in Hibiscus pink.

Whether you’re gifting a friend, family member, or yourself this Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with a quality piece from the Le Creuset line. And remember, if pink isn’t your color, they have other options, too!

Holiday Gift Guide For The Cook

Choosing gifts for that special person who lives in the kitchen and loves to cook shouldn’t be challenging, but yet, sometimes it is. I’m here to help! Here’s my Holiday Gift Guide For The Cook; any one of these gifts will be sure to please the recipient. Yes, there are some big ticket items on the list (hey – it’s the holidays!) but also a few well-chosen smaller, handy items as well.

All of these items can be found on Amazon and most are Amazon Prime items, so you should be able to order and receive them quickly if you’re a Prime subscriber. Note: these are Amazon affiliate links, which means this website gets a very small percentage of the sale (your cost is the same), which is helpful in keeping this site up and running. 😉

Photos are clickable, as are the text links below the graphic. Enjoy shopping!

KitchenAid Stand Mixer  |  Stainless Steel Measuring Cups & Spoons Set  |  Immersion Blender  |  Vitamix Blender  |  Wustof Knife Set  |  Jacobsen Salt Set Lodge Cast Iron Skillet French Press Coffee & Tea Maker  |  Double Steamer Cookware  |  Gourmet Balsamic Vinegar of Modena  |  Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill  |  Crock-Pot Programmable Slow Cooker

My Top 3 Picks

Vitamix Blender – I use my Vitamix Blender twice a day, and sometimes more. We’re a frozen smoothie family and this blender will do it’s job on anything frozen: fruit, ice, you name it. It will work equally well making soups, such as broccoli or cauliflower. It will even pulverize almonds to give you almond meal. Is it worth the cost? Yes! This is an industry-standard powerhouse of an appliance that has a superior track record. Vitamix blenders are made in the USA.  Check it out.

Stainless Steel Oven Safe Double Steamer Cookware – I love my steamer set! I steam veggies all the time: spinach, green beans, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower…you name it, you can probably steam it. Recently, we’ve been enjoying using it to steam frozen tamales. I even use the top portion as a colander, and of course, the bottom section can be used as a regular pot when not needing to use it as a steamer. This set is made in the USA. You will use this cookware more than you think!

French Press Coffee & Tea Maker – Whether it’s coffee or tea that you prefer, this item has you covered. The carafe is made of  double German glass which means it will never crack when you’re using super hot water. If you love a steaming cup of coffee, this is for you! You can use it as a tea press if coffee isn’t your thing. It also comes with several filters to help you get the perfect press depending on your coffee or tea grind. This product is made in Germany. Check it out.

Sweet Kitchen Treats For Valentine’s Day

Consider treating yourself with a few sweet kitchen essentials for Valentine’s Day ~ guaranteed 100% fat free! Here are some Sweet Kitchen Treats For Valentine’s Day.

I don’t know about you, but I can get pretty messy while cooking. Seriously, when was the last time you used flour and didn’t get it all over some surface, including yourself? 😉 Enter the handy apron, a kitchen staple that’s now fashionable. Here’s an adorable apron perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond.

I love my spiralizer! This gadget is so handy, especially in the spring when it seems cucumbers, yellow squash and zucchini are in abundance. My favorite use for it is to make veggie pasta. So simple, so healthy. The uses for a spiralizer seem endless. If you have a vegetable, you can probably spiralize it. You get an assortment of blades so you can create different types of spiral slices for your veggies. It’s dishwasher-safe and is made from BPA-free plastic.

If you don’t yet have a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, consider this beauty in gorgeous Empire Red. If that color doesn’t work for you, there’s a drool-worthy palette to chose from here. Wondering if the investment in a stand mixer is worth it? I wondered that, too. My experience is that I use it for so many more things than I thought I would, plus, it’s an incredible time-saver in the kitchen, and who doesn’t need that? I’ve never heard of anyone who has regretted having one! 😉
