I have to say it was honestly hard to narrow down my favorite things within my budget. I came close to giving away a case of wine, but I decided to go with a few other things I love and use on a daily basis. Plus I wasn’t sure about shipping wine, and not keeping it instead. Ha ha.

I LOVE almond butter. I can easily eat a whole jar  in one sitting, I don’t, but I could. When my friend Claudette started up her company, Cavegirl Confections, I was so excited to see she was making almond butters. She has so many amazing flavors, but these two are by far my favorite. The cacao nib has little cacao nibs throughout the almond butter and the vanilla coconut is just as amazing. She also makes other paleo amd gluten free snacks, her maple bacon granola is one of my faves.

I am a self-proclaimed kitchen gadget junkie. I have two drawers and a box full of gadgets.  I don’t have all of these from this hysterical list of Clever Gifts For Food Lovers ( I do have the pineapple corer and drinking out of a pineapple is pretty awesome) but I do have almost one of each of OXO‘s gadgets. They make awesome stuff. These three I use almost daily. The silicone brush is awesome for spreading oil on cast iron pans, greasing waffle irons, muffin tins, basting meats on the bbq. The Y peeler is amazing. I peel a ton of sweet potatoes and other veggies all week and with a regular peeler I was always stopping to unclog it, but the Y peeler never gets clogged up with peels and I can peel stuff way faster.  The thin spatula is amazing. It is perfect for flipping anything from eggs to fish, its great for cookies and any delicate foods that need minimal handling when cooking so they don’t fall apart. I actually own two I love it that much.

Food Bloggers My Favorite Things Giveaway www.pineappleandcoconut 7 Food Bloggers Favorite Things Giveaway
This is hands down my favorite coconut oil to use. I use it for everything from as my cooking oil, seasoning my cast iron pans, as my oil in baking, to lotion, to chapstick. It is so versatile and, in fact, here is a list of 101 Uses For Coconut Oil. Its just good good stuff. I normally order my coconut oil by the gallon from Tropical Traditions. They have a ton of products that I love and they are always having amazing sales and or free shipping.

Food Bloggers My Favorite Things Giveaway www.pineappleandcoconut 1 Food Bloggers Favorite Things Giveaway
Last but not least, my favorite every day pan. For a cast iron pan this one is surprisingly light and cooks up everything perfectly. I use it daily for eggs, its awesome for veggies, pancakes, quesadillas and even fish. It cleans up quickly and I use my thin spatula with it. The handle does get hot so I included the silicone handle cover so you can hold on to it without burning your hand. It even made all the crepes for my 40 layer crepe cake.

  94. I love the time spent with family!

  95. Lisa Langley says:

    Well, the thing I love most about the holiday season- I can finally take a break from studying and not feel totally guilty about it. My husband was diagnosed with a severe medical condition a few years ago, which in turn forced my hand from being a SAHM, to needing to be the sole provider for my family. Since, I was waiting for our three kids to be older before heading off to college, this meant that I had to find a career that would be minimal schooling but still pay the bills for the rest of our lives. So, I’m a nursing student that constantly struggles with finding time to do anything with my family until this hell of going back to school is over.
    But, aside from that- I love baking and cooking for the holidays! I miss this the most about being a SAHM- fresh meals and nothing boxed! Having time to make a homemade meal for my family is probably the thing I miss the most.

  96. My favorite thing about the holidays is baking cookies to share.

  97. All the festive food! everything feels so much more homey and welcoming when you have a tray of christmas cookies in the kitchen.

  98. My favorite thing about the holiday season is baking and decorating cookies.
