Thai fried garlic, 2.2 oz jar, available online
I first picked this up in a kitchen I was working in. It's a really nice garnish/finishing touch for so many dishes, from pasta to salad to sandwiches (if nothing else, it's good on a grilled cheese). Perfectly crunchy and not too garlicky.
I just heart it. Here's why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdB7GDZY3Pk Quirky, affordable, fun, tasty, it's the best grocery store ever.
Awww, how cute! And it combines 4 of my favorite things: wax, fire, cupcakes and smells.
This wooden serving plate is exquisite! And its on a revolving base.
To make vanilla ice cream a little more special for dessert, especially for an orange-themed party, drizzle it with orange syrup. Sciroppo Arancia makes it exotic.
