My hubby and his father. My husband loves food and there isn't much he won't eat. He is always willing to try something new. My father-in-las is some what of a chef himself and we enjoy talking food. Over the years, my father-in-law has bought me cookbooks, a KitchenAid standing mixer, a wok and many interesting imported spices.

What are three recipes that you use all the time?

If I clean up, I like cleaning the cake pans.

My in-laws showing up before the house is picked up.

Who do you tag to do this next?
Anyone who wants to play! Let me know you did it, and I will check it out!

Hi Sara Lynn! Chicken spareribs? Do you have a recipe here on your site? I'll have to check it out.

I love "Love Actually" too. I've watched it so many times with my bloke :)

Cookware shops! I love 'em. Really good kitchen knives are probably the very best buy - and one I'd invest in even if I only had a single hob to cook on.

I'm looking forward to the day when I'm making less use of the hand blender... how much pureed carrot have I got to make?

There aren't many gadgets we don't use. Most dangerous is probably the mandolin - I prefer to be careful with a good knife rather than use that.

I was pretty staggered to see a bagel cutter guide in a shop in Canterbury last weekend. Glad I don't have one of these in my kitchen, people might think I was in Gillian of Radlett's mad club;).

"What is your favourite thing to clean?"

hun? What a strange question. At least to my mind... But then, I hate to clean. I only do it because it would be yucky not to.

This is a great meme. Since I have been sick and unable to post any new recipes, a meme seemed like a great way to let readers know I am not dead so I did consider myself tagged by you. Thanks for the invite. And I am with you on the pasta maker--I thought I would get one with Christmas money and could not believe how expensive they were!
