Good morning everyone! It’s Friday!!! Woot woot can’t believe the weekend is here! This weekend is going to be non-stop baking for me as our Jewish holiday goes into full swing next week and I have so many hamanstachen to make! My parents are in for a little shock as their kitchen will be full of freshly baked trays of triangle cookies.
Today’s post is a little fantasy related, it reflects my wish-list right now. I’m pretty sure the list can go on forever and ever and ever so I decided to narrow it down to four wish-list items.
What is on your wish-list? Any advice you can give for a beginner cook like me?
A cookbook sharing all the secrets of the Tacolicious restaurant in San Francisco. The author, Sara Deseran, co-owner of the establishment, gives the reader an opportunity to recreate the tacolicious experience at home. I actually flipped through this book and it has so much variety. This would make for a great summer read, because I have a feeling a lot of outdoor grilling is going down in a few short months and since the boyfriend’s favorite beer is Corona, a taco just seems to fit.
2. A stand mixer
After doing all this baking and looking into moving on from hamantaschen to breads, cupcakes, and maybe even cakes it got me thinking, I will probably need a stand mixer at some point. This is an item I will have to save for, because the good brands are so expensive and I want to make sure I have one that will last me a very long time! Birthday gift mom *cough and dad *cough.
3. The New Book of Middle Eastern Food
Written by Claudia Roden, I have gotten so many recommendations for this book. Easy to make, delicious, and authentic recipes that will be a sure hit with the boyfriend and my family and friends. I love the middle eastern cuisine, because there is a perfect balance of meats, salads, and carbs. I love that there are so many fish recipes and the sauces are endless. I think this book will be perfect in expanding my knowledge and cooking experience.
4. Wine Bottle Stopper
With reading French Women Don’t Get Fat, I have decided to start investing in wine bottles, a glass a night or every other night of white wine will just finish the day so perfectly. Plus this wine stopper is really adorable with a cowboy boot strapped to the top of it!
