Gift baskets are always so much fun to receive.  You get a variety of items that are useful, delicious and just plain awesome!  The Lakeside Collection has put together some AWESOME gift baskets to give you inspiration to create your very own basket.  They put six fun and interesting gift baskets together to show you how to create the perfect gift basket for someone special on your Holiday Shopping List!

The Perfect Curious Cook Gift Basket

For this review, I received the Curious Cook Gift Basket!  This is one of the best gift baskets that I have ever received!  It was full of all kinds of useful items for the kitchen and spices for making the perfect recipes.  Let me tell you about all the goodies I received in this gift basket!


The Pioneer Woman Cooks - Food From My Frontier

The first item was the simple, scrumptious, step-by-step recipe book, by The Pioneer Woman, called Food From My Frontier!  It has all the perfect recipes for every type of meal, with easy instructions and vivid pictures of every step.  Now, that's what I call the perfect cookbook!  I love having pictures of each step in a recipe, so you know what it should look like.

Next, there was the Set of 3 Handled Bakers that were the perfect sizes and very colorful!   The scalloped sides makes them perfect for entertaining and they offer easy oven-to-table convenience.  Each stoneware piece has half-loop handles, for easy lifting.  They're dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.
  • 140-Oz. large, 11-3/8" x 11" x 5-1/2"
  • 78-Oz. medium, 9-5/8" x 8-7/8" x 4-3/8"
  • 40-Oz. small, 7-3/4" x 7-1/4" x 3-3/4"


Then came the 5-Pc. Bread Dipping Set!  The set included four decorated saucers and a 4-compartment plastic jar seasoning, which included Sicilian Blend, Tuscany Blend, Parmesan Blend and Rosa Maria seasoning.  This is perfect for entertaining, just get a bottle of olive oil and some delicious bread.  The plates are dishwasher safe.



The next item I found very interesting!  Instead of measuring cups, they're cup measuring spoons.  They're made of 18/0 stainless steel, the spoons have long handles and narrow necks to fit perfectly into canisters and jars.  If you think about it, these would come in very handy to measure flour and other ingredients that are in big jar containers.  That way you wouldn't have to spoon or scoop out the flour to put into a measuring cup. Very clever!  They're dishwasher safe.   
  • Easy-to-use cup-size measuring spoons!
  • Flat bottoms let them rest upright on the counter
  • Easy-pour spouts
  • 4-Pc. set includes:
  • 1 Cup
  • 1/2 Cup
  • 1/3 Cup
  • 1/4 Cup
  • Details:
    • 18/0 Stainless steel
    • Dishwasher safe



Well the next item was a very useful tool, it was a Cut and Serve Spatula!  This spatula makes it very easy to cut and serve lasagna, bars, cookies, cakes and so much more.  It has a serrated edge to ensure precise cutting and smooth edges that allow food to slide right off.  It has an extra long flat blade. 
  • Innovative kitchen utensil does both jobs
  • Details:
    • 10-3/4" x 2"
    • Stainless steel
    • Dishwasher safe


If you love spices, the next one was an additional Gourmet 4-Compartment Seasoning Jar!  This was a bigger jar, with the same seasonings that the Bread Dipping Set came with.
  • Sicilian Blend
  • Rosa Maria (Rosemary and Garlic)
  • Parmesan Blend (Garlic and Cheese)
  • Tuscany Blend (Sundried Tomato and Basil)



Included in the gift basket was a 10-pc Terry Kitchen Towel Set.  These towels were perfect for cleaning up messes and drying dishes.  The multicolored towels are made of polyester/cotton and the solid cranberry colored towels are made of polyester microfiber.
  • Each 10-pc. set includes:
    • 6 Kitchen towels (15" x 25", each)
      • 2 Solid color
      • 4 Checkered
    • 4 Solid dishcloths (12" sq., each)



I saved the delicious treat for last!  How yummy does a Fruit Crisp sound?  It's an easy to make tasty treat, in a cute bag and it comes with a wooden spoon!  All you need for the Fruit Crisp is butter, fresh or frozen fruit!



This is another one of my favorite products, that I would stand behind and highly recommend!

Here are the six gift baskets that you can create, but the possibilities are endless.  You can really personalize each basket to suit the recipient.  Add a little of this and a little of that, wrap the basket in some clear cellophane and add a beautiful bow.  Making a personalized gift basket is always fun and it's heart warming to see the smile on the recipient's face.  You don't have to spend a fortune on creating the perfect basket.  The Lakeside Collection has all sorts of unique gifts at affordable prices. 



Prize:  One Lakeside Collection Curious Cook Gift Basket! ($76.60)
