Holiday Gift Guide for the Food Geek


I wouldn’t consider myself a true foodie, but I sure do love to cook it and I love to eat it.  I decided to work on a foodie post after my weekend getaway at my bestie’s house.  My bestie’s fiancĂ© is a food geek and he cooked for us over the entire weekend.  Each dish looked and tasted like a gourmet meal.  I was really impressed with the fact that each meal was prepared with ease.  I took note of some of his favorite tools and gadgets to create his culinary delights.  And I wanted to share some of them with you below.  For this edition of Fresh Picks to Follow, I picked out several gifts to satisfy every appetite.  Let me know if you have any additional suggestions for this gift guide.

The Debut of the Dagmar / Fresh Picks to Follow - Top 10 Holiday Gifts Under $100.00

The Debut of the Dagmar

This past Friday my office administrative staff threw all the employees a breakfast to show how much they appreciate us.  It was pretty cool…I have never been to anything like that before.  They made us French toast, potato hash brown au gratin, cheese and bacon grits, egg and sausage casserole, a spiraled ham, croissants, fruit salad and blueberry muffins.  There was so much food and everything was amazing.  I wish I took a picture of all of the food. 

I wore my Dagmar shirtdress for the first time last Friday.  I really love this dress.  I’m so happy that I was able to track this down a couple of months ago…it truly makes a statement.  I paired this with a pair of black opaque tights and black suede boots.  I also added a black skinny suede flower belt from Anthropologie.  As you can tell from the second picture, I went to Anthro and I ended up trying on a few things.  Stay tuned for some reviews of dresses and skirts.  I really hope that I get a gift card this Christmas because I'm in trouble.  I want everything!
