I love my birthday. And I especially love when my birthday brings lots of kichen-centered gifts! This year I was lucky enough to get an ice cream maker and a Ben & Jerry's recipe book to go with it, so get ready for some yummy homemade ice cream recipes coming soon. And Joe gave me five new cookbooks, including two that focus entirely on cookies. I can't even tell you how many recipes I want to make. Thanks everyone for the awesome gifts. I plan to start cooking and baking right away...well as soon as I go polish off my Cold Stone Creamery birthday cake!
