My X-Mas Wish List

What to get a Foodie/Blogger/Traveller for Christmas...Hummmm let me count the ways!
Each year, Oprah comes up with her "Favourite list", well here's mine in no particular order. Enjoy!
1)Adobe photoshop Elements, just because Pioneer Women uses it!



2) Roots-Village Bag in Vintage Tribe Leather. Love this purse! Perfect for traveling and looks super durable... I need a durable purse.




3) Emilie Sloan Gabrielle Lunch Tote: Cranberry

4) A Class/gift certificate at the Urban Element in Ottawa:

Here is an exert from their website: " Hands-on Class: This class is a must for foodies and newbies alike-it's for anyone willing to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty! You will play an active role in preparing your own 3 to 4 course meal with the help and guidance of our featured chefs. ...Before you know it, it will be time to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour. From here, the Urban Element staff will treat you like a guest, pouring wine, plating and presenting you with the wonderful meal you helped create. "

SIGN ME UP!!!!

5) Dinner at au Pied de Cochon in Montréal, Québec. By far my favourite restaurant, if do go, I suggest wearing elastic waist pants.




6) A good Porto, Quinta de Castelinho comes to mind... SAQ sells it.



7) Waiters Rant Book


8) Gel mat for the kitchen. Perfect for those achy tired feet and legs! Hate those hard ceramic tile floors...

9) Food Network magazine subscription...why not...


10) Scharffen Berger milk chocolate (not the dark one)... velvety smooth melt in your mouth goodness! My favourite chocolate ever! Usually I much prefer dark bitter chocolate, but this one is simply sinful.




11) Le Nordik Gift certificate. My favourite place to escape and unwind.


Nordic baths http://www.lenordik.com/


Outdoor hot tubs, Finnish sauna, steam bath, Nordic waterfalls, cold and temperate pools, outdoor and indoor relaxation areas & outdoor fireplaces. WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE!??

12) Trail of Crumbs book




13) Gift certificate at Le Cordon Bleu for a demonstration class.




If we win the lottery:



-Kitchen aid mixer in Copper pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze PRETTY pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze

-Saaco Espresso machine. One of these would make me a happy women!

Nice list! I could use a few of those items myself :)

For me, I'd love some extra cash so that I can take an exotic culinary trip somewhere. **Wishful Thinking**
