Holiday Gifts for Foodies

Monday, December 12th, 2016

1. Instant Pot, 7-in-1 Pressure cooker
The instant pot is the latest trend that makes everyday meals super quick and easy! Use it as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer and more!
2. Joule sous vide by Chefsteps
Chefsteps is taking sous vide cooking to the next level with their sleek new immersion circulator. You can use the Chefsteps app to connect to Joule via wifi for super simple operation. It even works with Amazon Alexa! The shoulder steak that I made this week was really easy to set up, and it came out incredible soft and tender.
3. Whisk necklace
With the whisk in my logo, I’ve got a thing for this handy kitchen tool. It’s super cute in jewelry form too!
4. Aromasong gourmet dead sea salt gift set
I fell in love with these salts at Kosherfest this year. Grind their “dilly garlic” salt over a cucumber slice and you’ve got an instant pickle!
5. white marble swivel-top salt cellar
I found this stunner on The Chef’s Wife Instastory and I had to have it! It’s super heavy and large, the photo does not do it justice!
6.  bronzed french press
If I was into french pressing my coffee, I would so buy this beauty. But I’m still using good old fashioned instant espresso, sans machine. Shhhh!!
7. Savannah Bee Company honey gift set
I tasted Savannah Bee’s collection of whipped honey at Kosherfest this year and I was hooked! The lemon is my fave!
8. slate cheese markers
Loving these slate markers to go with my slate cheese board!
9. dumpling maker
Dumplings are so hot these days, and this gadget makes dumpling-making super easy.
10. Paderno 3-blade Spiralizer
I’ve been a fan of spiralizing for years and I always recommend the Paderno. It’s lightweight, easy to use and super fun! Don’t waste your money on the 4-blade though.
11. personalized tablet or iphone holder
I bought this as a gift for my friend Melinda and had it personalized with the name of her blog, Kitchen-Tested. It was the perfect gift for her newly renovated kitchen and looks spectacular on her kitchen counter! I kinda wanted to buy it for myself after seeing it in person, but I think I’ll have to upgrade my kitchen first!
12. Staub cast iron vertical roaster
If you’re a fan of my bundt pan chicken, this cast iron roaster takes it to the next level. With sides that are even lower than a bundt pan, you get crispy skin all around.
13. Isidre salt and pepper shakers with tray
I couldn’t help but pick up this adorable set on a recent Anthropologie shopping spree. I don’t even use them, they’re looking super cute on my fireplace mantel!
14. Breaking Bread by Uri Scheft
The recipes in this new release, from the owner of Breads bakery, will have you drooling! Uri shares the recipe of his famous babka, plus other staples like challah, shakshuka foccacia and rugelach.
15. Shun chef knife
Loving this beautiful knife! Now who wants to buy it for me?
16. multi vegetable chopper
Last year for my birthday, my husband bought me 35 small gifts, this chopper included. My kids are huge fans of Israeli salad, and this makes it super easy to make. I use it almost daily! I love that it has 2 sizes for chopping – extra small (just how we like our salsas and Israeli salad) and a bit larger, great for beets and mango!

Raspberry Honey Mustard Pretzel Dip

Monday, February 11th, 2013

If you’re still scrambling for shalach manos ideas, you’ve come to the right place! And not just because I’m gonna wow you with this unbelievably amazing pretzel dip that makes the perfect home-made gift. I’ve also got lots of other ideas for you, starting with this old post.

And then there’s this new giveaway post with tons of amazing shalach manos ideas in the comments! (If you haven’t already entered this giveaway, what are you waiting for? Have you seen the bowls I’m giving away?!)

And since I love you all so much, I’ve created a new category where you can find all of my Purim Posts in one place!

And that’s not all.

If after all that you’re STILL stuck in a rut, check out all the amazing home-made gift ideas for Purim in the Kosher Connection Link-Up below!

If my raspberry honey mustard pretzel dip had you at hello and you want to know how to package it up, well here’s what I did:

Print out adorable tags onto cute cardstock and tape them to the top of small canning jars filled with pretzel dip. Wrap some raffia around the lid and secure with a bow. Then, fill a small cellophane bag with an assortment of pretzels and fold over the top. Print a label that says “Purim Pretzels” on one side and “from: family name” on the other. Fold it over the cellophane bag and staple on each side.

Voila. Purim Pretzel Perfection.

If you’re not up to making this pretzel dip for your Purim package, you should still give it a try. The combination of the sweet raspberry jam and spicy brown mustard, topped off with some hot mustard seeds in each bite, make this the perfect condiment for turkey subs, chicken salad or wraps of any kind!
