Two foods that I can never get enough of are fruits and veggies. Sweet and juicy, and without all the guilt that comes along with eating pizza and ice cream. But in our busy lives it’s often hard to squeeze in an apple a day when our stomachs are screaming for something more hearty, like a sub or sandwich.
Thankfully, these gadgets from Williams Sonoma will help you get your daily fix of nutrition without any hassle.
First, the OXO 3-in-1 avocado slicer is the perfect pitter and pre-per for your avocado halves. The sharp slicer cuts through the avocados skin. Next, …
lemonade from cooksillustrated.com
Pink or yellow, sweet or sour, fresh or frozen: it doesn’t matter how you spin it, lemonade and summertime go hand-in-hand. I remember sitting at the end of my driveway selling lemonade from a cooler, arguing with my sister about who gets to collect the cash. I was about seven years old and making anything over $10.00 a day was a fortune.

So why not bring yourself back to those childhood days with the flavor of fresh squeezed lemonade. The Takeya Flash Chill Lemonade Maker makes it easy to squeeze and store the sweet nectar all within …
grilled meat from myrecipes.com
For this years July 4th cookout my Dad decided to make a pork roast. After he marinated the meat for a day, he cooked the pork shoulder for nine long hours on the grill over hickory-smoked wood chips until it reached peak tenderness. Personally, being a vegetarian, pork isn’t my cup of tea. But the process to prepare this dinner was pretty interesting, none the less.
Something that was as time consuming to prepare as that piece of pork should have incredible flavor. Over-cooking it would be a disaster and a huge waste of time.
And so, the importance …
grilled corn on the cob from myrecipes.com
When I think about summer cookouts I think pasta salad and corn on the cob. As a kid it was often my job to shuck the corn before tossing it into the steamer. Smothering on the butter and sprinkling on the salt made for the most delicious combination of sweet and savory. I hardly minded all the corn-hair that got stuck in my teeth.
Today, I tend to skip the butter and salt and just enjoy the au-natural sweetness of the corn itself. Maybe it’s the novelty of eating something with my hands that makes …
ice balls from cookinglight.com
Spring has sprung and winter is hopefully in hibernation until next year. But the warmer weather means we’re all in need of a refreshing cool-down to beat the heat. Today’s gadget is perfect for summer, or early spring, gatherings. Everyone can appreciate an ice cold beverage while basking in the summer sun, so this gadget is a must-get.
Ice Balls, made by Prepara, are perfect when entertaining friends and family. Standard ice-cube trays are so 2011. The same-old square cubes are boring and out-dated. Prepara’s Ice Balls can spice up any beverage from your usual morning O.J. to …
One thing I love about the weekends is putting the cereal aside until Monday and indulging in some real stick-to-your-ribs kind of breakfast. Chocolate chip pancakes used to be my Saturday usual, but these days anything from omelets with toast and home fries to french toast doused in syrup and powered sugar are fine by me.
When I studied abroad last year I did a bit of traveling through Europe. I ended up spending a weekend in Brussels and the most memorable part were the waffles.
Belgian waffle in Brussels: best breakfast ever
Nothing compares to a true Belgian waffle; coated in crunchy …
Last week while I was chatting on the phone with my cousin who lives in Salem, MA, she mentioned her newest kitchen gadget that she just can’t get enough of. When I told her that I’d never heard of it she was taken aback. So I did a little research of my own, and I, too, soon became seduced by the wonder of what is the Slap Chop.
A small, handheld device, with a hollow core and a W-shaped blade concealed within the body of the gadget, the Slap Chop minces and dices a plethora of foods. By “slapping” the lever on the …
One of my favorite comfort foods has always been pasta. No matter how you serve it, with butter and melted parmesan, or doused in sweet red marinara sauce, it’s always satisfying and delicious. It may sound strange to some but one of my favorite ways to have pasta growing up was casserole-style, mixed with tuna fish, mayonnaise and dill pickles, mmm. And I can’t forget to mention my mother’s scrumptious pasta salads that are the staple at most of our barbecue’s all summer long.
As of late, pasta has gotten a bad rep. Many of us hold the noodle accountable for …
