It truely takes talent to be a great cook. I used to be horrible at it, so I should know. I’ve heard every excuse in the book as to why people didn’t eat my food (“I’m not that hungry”, “I’m allergic to asparagus”, etc). It got old and I decided to do something about it. I tried more and more new recipes and invested in a couple of cookbooks. My cooking has improved so much. It feels great when people ask me to cook something special!
This is a great gift idea for a person who loves to cook. It puts a fun spin on giftwrapping, too! I’m always looking for creative ways to wrap presents for people. Take a oven mitt and fill it with skinnier kitchen accessories. Some ideas include: a vegetable peeler, a meat thermomoter, spoons, whisks, a wine corkscrew, kabob skewers, toothpicks, and tongs. You can put whatever you want in there to make it creative and accomadate the person receiving the gift.
