Foodie Gifts for your Foodie Mama (and Foodie Self!)

I'm totally sold when it comes to Williams and Sonoma. I buy into the whole deal when I walk into the store and I salivate over the catalog when it comes to call. Even if I go there to buy gifts, I end up buying things for myself too.

I've been keeping an eye out for good foodie gifts this Christmas and I would be extraordinarily happy to get any Williams & Sonoma gift, especially this one: The Zoku Quick Pop Maker. I saw this in the catalog and immediately went on-line to check it out. After I watched the video of it I was totally sold, and I want to make some popsicles no matter WHAT the weather is outside.


Zoku Quick Pop Maker, $49.95
I have to mention here that W&S is the only company to carry this product! Believe me, I checked.

I love their hot chocolate-- So creamy and chocolatey-intense. I've bought this a few years in a row now for myself and for friends.


Hot Chocolate with Pot $39.95 (chocolate only $19.50)

And here's the link to more gifts under $50 at Williams & Sonoma
(I'm drooling again over sticky buns and chocolate croissants on that page. If only I could guarantee their amazingness after crossing the ocean!)

Last year I bought, for myself, an 11 Cup cuisinart food processor that was on sale at Macys.com. I am so glad I did. I saw that they are on sale again, and don't you deserve one?
11 Cup Cuisinart Food Processor $130

My last recommendation is for a cast iron skillet. I think everyone should be cooking in cast iron and stainless steel now that I've read so much about non-stick pans and the hazard to your health. I try to cook only in my cast-iron. If you keep it well-seasoned it is really just as good as your non-stick pan. The best deal I found was Amazon.com!

Great suggestions! I have a cast iron skillet and agree that it's a must-have. Now I want all of the rest of the great things on your list, too!

I too drool over the WS catalog...and I too looked at the popsicle maker, and the chocolate, and the knives, and the mandoline (I can't find mine) and the ebleskiver cookbook, and the pasta press and then I try and figure out how I can make the food that they sell in the back. Then I get really hungry and go eat some chocolate. Its a wonder I don't weigh a whole lot more!

I forgot to mention how much I drool over the Zingerman's catalog. I should have put a blurb in about them too! Their food catalog is amazing. When I'm rich I will totally be in the Bacon of the month club. And the Zingerman club. And pay for the bread to be shipped over here.

it's popsicle weather over here as in if you go outside you will become a popsicle. come summer we could use one or two of those.

Popsicles are lovely next to a roaring fire.

I've never seen such a thing as that popsicle maker! How great is that. They can be so messy without good tools.
