Advanced Home Cooks--What's on Your Wishlist? (Assuming You Were Good!)

Cooking is probably my main hobby these days. And, as a late-thirties professional, I have a fully outfitted kitchen. I'm being asked for gift ideas for Christmas, and I think I'll probably limit myself to 1) whisky and 2) stuff for the kitchen. Fellow advanced home cooks with fully stocked kitchens, what's on your wishlist this holiday season? Not looking for gimmicky stuff; rather something I'd actually use for years to come. [more inside]

Yule Be Swell! Yule Be Great!

We will be hosting a very large Yule gathering in our home next month, and I need ideas on ways to feed people affordably but impressively with simple but very elegant dishes. We set the bar pretty high last year, so the H is O. [more inside]

[Christamas-Cookie Filter] is the gingerbread cookie OBSOLETE?

Here in Seattle, when you want to buy a single gingerbread person (or tree or sheep, or whatever,) you are basically OUT OF LUCK in 2009. No, I do NOT want to buy a whole package of them, or bake a batch. I just want to saunter into a bakery or coffeeshop and buy ONE cookie. No, not the huge, soft, ginger cookies which are admittedly delicious, but are no substitute as far as the texture of a good gingebread "person" is concerned. I'd bake some, but let's face it, who can eat just one? And I'd like to minimize the holiday weight-gain carnage this year. So far, I've searched three different Seattle neighborhoods: downtown, Ballard, and Greenwood. Zip.

Good microwave cooking recipes for Christmas candies, jams, etc

Surprisingly good microwave recipes anyone? I'm looking for microwave recipes for jams, candy, etc. that you've actually made and turned out surprisingly well for being cooked in a microwave. I'm particularly interested in any recipe that can be made and put in containers for Christmas gifts.

Accessible minty appetizers

Every year at Christmas, my husband's family has a cooking contest. I don't expect to win, because Grandma is generally a lock. However, I'm a good sport and generally try to make a respectable showing. This year's theme is "appetizers with mint in them," and I am looking for tasty recipes. There's a catch though...
