Christmas Comes Early

Any of you who might know me are well aware of my Williams-Sonoma obsession. I will happily spend hours perusing the tools, gadgets, recipes, books, etc. (not to mention, enjoying the tasty samples). Well, they just made my Christmas season. Why? I’ve had my eye on this wonderful little pancake pan…not just any pancake pan, I tell you…an Ebelskiver pancake pan. I know, I know…an Ebil-WHAT? Let me give you a little back story…my dear Uncle Charlie used to make Ebelskivers, a traditional Danish pancake, for my family when I was little. It was always such a treat, since we never made them in my own house. They are basically round pancakes that are light, fluffy, slightly sweet and pretty much a small piece of heaven. So last Christmas when I was doing my daily drooling over the Breville Panini Press at WS, I spotted the pan! It had been years since I’d even seen one…I had kind of thought they were hard to find. In any case, it was a little pricier than I wanted to spend at the time and I have been coveting it ever since. Imagine my absolutely DELIGHT when I received an email from WS this morning, announcing 1-day deals that they will be promoting throughout the month. Today’s deal? The Ebelskiver pan HALF-PRICE! I bought two (one for my parents), as well as the cookbook that accompanies it. It is filled with both sweet and savory recipes; every one of them looks divine (especially the chocolate ganache, pictured here--YES PLEASE). If you’ve got a pancake-lover in your family, head over to Williams-Sonoma today and pick up this fabulous gift! i don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to Christmas-morning breakfast…
