One of the gifts we picked up with our wedding gift money was a shiny chrome KitchenAid. Last year for Nicholas' birthday, I got him the King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion since we heard from our friend Jenny it has excellent recipes. These three together: Nicholas, that book, and the KitchenAid yields drool worthy things like Clafouti and Scones and Cookies on a very regular basis. Mmmmm.
The mini blueberry scones above were a gift to his co-workers. ;)
