It's official, the holiday season is here! We hope you didn't spend last Friday fighting aggressive crowds of impatient shoppers. There's a reason the day after Thanksgiving is called, Black Friday. It's a dark, dark, time to go shopping. We skipped the stores and stayed home in our pajamas, watched Christmas movies, and ate leftovers. It was awesome.
Today is our shopping day. We'll make ourselves a peppermint mocha, snuggle up with the pups, and get our holiday shopping done in the comfort of our homes. Sounds good, doesn't it?
Join us! But before you start shopping, take a look at our gift list of favorite things. Just click on the links to order.

THE PERFECT GIFTS FOR HOME COOKS
If you want to cook with success, these are a few of our favorite things. With a teapot thrown in, because a cup of tea in the afternoon is life. (Amazon affiliate links below)
A good Dutch oven that will last forever is something every cook needs. We adore Le Creuset's beautiful cast iron 5-quart oval Dutch oven. It looks as good as the food you make in it!
Some of the recipes we love to make in a dutch oven are...
If you follow us regularly, you know that we LOVE cooking in cast-iron skillets. They heat so evenly, they can go from cooktop to oven, and they clean up like a breeze. Once you go cast-iron, you'll never want to cook with anything else.

Brew a cup of tea every day! We absolutely love this gooseneck tea kettle. In fact, Alex has two in her home. Why do we love this tea kettle? Because the gorgeous long spout allows you to make an easy and controlled pour! No more worrying about hot water sloshing over the side of your tea cup!
There's nothing a budding (or experienced) chef needs like a fantastic chef's knife! There's nothing like a Miyabi. Speaking from experience, they're extremely precise, easy to handle, and are also just beautiful. They're well worth the price tag!
We like to grill. A lot! And when you live where it's cold nine months out of the year, you want a grill pan. You'll soon learn all about our obsession with grilling and BBQ when our cookbook is released in March!

VEGAN GIFT GUIDE: OUR MUST HAVE KITCHEN APPLIANCES
These are the tools that make vegan cooking flow. If you want the creamiest vegan sauces and cheese, the perfect truffles or pie crust, or thinly sliced or shredded veggies, these appliances will make cooking so much easier and efficient.
Our mixers are always on our counter top, so they might as well be pretty. We're in love with this simple matte black mixer from KitchenAid. They also come in more gorgeous colors!

What You Can Make With a Food Processor
Linda is Team Blendtec, but Alex is team Vitamix! To be fair, we've both had our respective blenders for years and they disappoint. They whip cashews into the creamiest sauces and cheese, and they make the best smoothies.
Our Favorite Smoothie Recipes
This is our go to for making creamy soups in the pot. No need to pour your soup into a blender in separate batches, just put the stick blender in the pot and watch your veggies turn into the most velvety cream soup ever.
FUN KITCHEN APPLIANCES
The only thing we have on this list is the slow cooking Crock Pot. What??!! If anyone wants to know what we want for Christmas, we'd love an air fryer and instant pot 😉
Cut your cooking time in half with an Instant Pot.
Love fried food, just not the copious amount of oil and calories? Then you need an air fryer in your life.
As convenient as a slow cooker is, I don't use mine nearly enough. I love the process of cooking, it's therapeutic to me. However, if you work outside of your home, or you prefer to let the machine do all of the work, then this is for you.
