A List for Santa: 20-Something Cook Edition


I don’t get presents anymore, unless it’s from a secret Santa.

When you get to be my age, you get socks for Christmas and six months of your iPhone’s data plan payed for.

True story.

But if I had to make a list for what I wanted this Christmas, it would include a number of items conducive to my budding culinary skills.

Budding – Culinary – Skills. That’s a laugh.

So Santa, if you’re reading this, this list is for you. Below are 5 of my culinary wish-list gifts that would make my life in the kitchen a heck of a lot easier.

Extra cookies and milk will be provided.

Samoa cookies.


Monogrammed Mugs

Anthropologie: $8.00 each

Because even though I don’t drink coffee, tea or anything that would be appropriately suitable for a mug, I am a sucker for monogrammed things. Plus the prints are so cute!

Polka Dot Apron

Sugar & Spice Aprons: $30.00

Purchase on Etsy

Is it a dress or an apron? Or both? Well…not exactly. The back is open with ties at the waist and neck. But fooled you didn’t? This is something I need in my life because when I’m in the kitchen baking, I look like I’ve had a full-out war with the flour. The flour usually wins.

5 Ingredient Fix by Claire Robinson

Amazon.com: $16.68

Because homegirl can make dishes out of five ingredients or less. I’m sold.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Walmart: $179.00

This does everything. It mixes, whips, processes, makes breads, milks goats. Whoah…you get the point. Every cook should have one.

Rolling Pin

Anthropologie: $18.00

I’ve turned into a 1950’s housewife.

And I like it.
