Well certainly for me! I got the best espresso/capp maker that is so easy to use and whips up perfect espresso and cappuccinos in no time! I am sipping one now! :) I also got a huge number of cookbooks this year (im a junkie) and I was wondering if anyone else got some great cookbooks- I thought it would be fun to list what you got and then ppl. can reply with insights on those books (successes or not so successful recipes) and their own lists or whish lists! :)

Here is my list which is crazy this year because all my family (we have a big one) decided to get me just what I wanted! :)

The Italian Country Table (Lynne Rossetto Kasper)
Bistro Cooking (Patricia Wells)

Sweet Myrtle and Bitter Honey (Efisio Farris)

The ultimate Soup Bible (Anne Sheasby)
and for my most treasured..... A passed down who knows how old copy of Joy of Cooking from my mother in law- I already have a new copy but this one with its tattered pages, marked recipes, notes etc. is so special-
