The 12 Days of Christmas Foodie Wish List 2010

December 15, 2010Katie


It’s that MOST happiest time… of the year.

Yes that’s right. It’s the Dishin & Dishes 12 Days of Foodie Christmas Wish List time.

Who says our kids are the only ones who can make lists?

Cuz if you’re a Foodie…

You have a list.

If not, you may have a foodie friend and need an idea.

Let me share mine with you. Click on any picture to see where you can get the item.

First off…returning from last year’s list.

Day #1 – The KitchenAid beater blade attachment for my stand mixer ($24.95, or depending on model). Returning cuz…well, I didn’t get it!

This beater blade will scrape the sides of the bowl for you. Amazing!

Now KitchenAid is a little tricky on their mixer attachments…you have to know what model and quart size the bowl is you’re using. For instance, mine is a 4.5 quart bowl, so you have to know what mixer size you need.

Day #2 – I truly want this cookbook. In Williams Sonoma stores ($24.75) or on

I’m a huge fan of Jamie and his simple rustic cooking. This cookbook may seem basic to some, but the way the man puts together ingredients, along with tips for gardening at home…well, in the words of Jamie…


Day #3 – I love these Quilting Circle Napkins from Anthropology ($6).

Day #4 – If this were a true wish list, I’d want these.

All-Clad d5 Brushed Stainless Steel Professional 10-Piece Cookware Set on sale at $899.

However, since that’s probably a bit out of anyone’s price range, …I’ll settle for this.

11 Pc. Tri-Ply Clad Stainless Steel Cookware Set from Sam’s Wholesale ($139.00).

Day #5 – I’ve always loved cheeses of all sorts and I adore these pedestals to serve them on from Pottery Barn ($29-$29)

Day #6 – And to go along with them, how about these Porcelain Cheese Markers as well from Pottery Barn ($19 for set of 4)?

Day #7 – SmartPower® Deluxe™ Blender ($79.95)

I’d love a Vitamix…but pretty sure if I told Mr. Wonderful they cost upwards of $500, he’d laugh himself silly.

Day#8 – Fumee de Sel – Chardonnay Oak Smoked Fleur De Sel – by Le Tresor ($16.99)

A great finishing salt …sigh.

Day #9 – Food & Wine magazine ($16.99/12 months). Mostly because I think I get every other one.

I’ve been browsing through this of late and really like what I see.

Day #10 – A set of Lodge Logic 5 Inch Miniature Skillets ($5/each).

These cute skillets measure five inches across in diameter and would be great to fix individual breakfasts or smaller dishes in. I LOVE me some cast iron these days. It’s become my favorite pan in the kitchen.

Day #11 – Taylor Digital Measuring Cup Scale ($34.95)

All good bakers know you should bake by weight and not by measuring. Since I bought Ratio by Michael Ruhlman, I’m in need of a good digital scale, but this one seems to be a good shortcut! It also weighs wet and dry ingredients together.

Day #12 – Magic Dough Pastry Mat (Bed Bath and Beyond $19.99)

This mat can be used for rolling out any kind of dough and is stick-free and needs no flour dusting. It has a non-slip backing and measurement equivalents printed right on the mat in both English and metric. Need to roll an 8 inch pie crust? Just use the template on the mat!

Day #13 What? I’m on 13..and I’m counting as a BAKER’S DOZEN okay?

The Kitchenaid Pasta Roller Attachment Set ($150) Williams-Sonoma.


I’ve debated about whether I truly want the cutters or just the rollers (A mere $60).

I’d settle for either.

Bonus round? New Year’s Day gift – Viv Martini Glasses ($3.95) Crate & Barrel

Classic martini glasses…I don’t really care much for martini’s..but they have other uses.

Are you a foodie? Or maybe you’re just starting to cook…what do you wish for this Christmas? Leave a comment below and tell me!

    I'm not quite a foodie - I do obsessively love food, but sadly have never been able to fall in love with fois gras. However I'd never heard KitchenAid has an attachment that scraps the sides of the bowl. I seriously think that would change my life - it'd just make me so happy every time I mixed! And those mini skillets are just adorable!

Don't be afraid to comment! I LOVE to hear from my readers!
