As an engaged girl, I found the website, theknot.com. For the newlyweds who used the Knot, you then have the choice to move over to thenest.com. This site helps couples with everything they encounter in their married lives :). The resources there are absolutely wonderful!!
I stumbled across the Nest forums by chance. Around Christmas, I was looking for a sugar cookie recipe, and there is a "What's Cooking?" board on the Nest. So, I lurked on there for ideas, and it seemed like SUCH a nice board. So, I stayed and started posting :). I've been there since.
Every season, one of the nesties, Joelen , hosts a gift exchange for the board. It's a great way to just have a nice foodie surprise in the mailbox, and today, I got mine!!
Thanks to I&R.4.23.06!!! She sent me silicone spatulas, a cookie scoop, a silicone basting/pastry brush, and a pack of cake tips. These are gadgets I needed, and cake tips, you can never have enough of those. AND, what I'm also excited about, Penzey's spices!! I got Northwoods seasonings, Cake Spice and Hot Chocolate mix :). She also gave me some lotion and body spray in peony (such a beautiful flower!)
Check out the spread!! Thanks so much, Intisar!!
