As you’re looking for holiday gifts this month, I wanted to share with you one of the coolest gifts I just got, from my Denver cooking friend Christine.
She sent me a cookbook, The Big Book of Appetizers, that she absolutely loves and has used so successfully for our swaps and cooking dates. Here’s the really cool part–It has Christine’s thoughts scribbled throughout, from “sinfully good, “great for football parties,” “don’t skimp on the poblanos,” and “we had these a lot on the patio this summer,” to “good grief, eliminate the work and use chicken breasts instead” and “always wanted to try this with you.”
What a great gift–a beloved cookbook enhanced by personal advice and thoughts. As I make the dishes, it’ll be like cooking together across the states!
