It looks like high-end blenders were all the rage this year (Blendtec and Vitamix). Unfortunately, these machines are priced in the $500 range. Crazy!

Then there are the tried and true recipe books for $10-$20 a piece.

In between are pots, pans, knives, and other kitchen contraptions.

What did you get?

    Silicone lids and cast iron cookware. So, some new technology, some very old.

  • SixCatFaerie

    A Nutri-Bullet to make delicious fresh fruit & veggie smoothies for my lunch!

  • Emily

    Silicone spatulas – from head to handle! No more icky crevasses!

    • jadegreen_eyz

      Sounds great, Emily. Going to look them up. Every now and then I remove the handles from my silicone spatulas and clean the handle opening in the blade because they can get pretty dirty/moldy in that slot.

    The most wonderful gifts I got were from my daughter, who went to New Orleans for holidays with her fiance: a jar of Herbs de Provence -which I CAN’T WAIT to use – and coffee with chicory, another favorite. (Once you’ve had coffee with chicory, its almost not worth drinking anything else.)

  • Healthyliving

    I got the Aria scale and the Fitbit Force. In 2009 I lost 128 pounds and gained back 43 this past year. I’m determined to get back under 200 and maintain!
