RSVP Onion Goggles

December 18, 2011

The RSVP Onion Goggles are one of my favourite gadgets and recommendations for Christmas Stocking Stuffers! Formerly, I used my ski goggles, (because I needed something thick enough to fit over my glasses), but since having my eyes lazered, I needed a new option that was streamlined and functional – and these were it!

No more tears for me:)

Available in black, white and pink.




Mastrad Apple Cooker A Success!

October 10, 2011

The Mastrad Apple Cooker is a great new gadgety thing that we have in-store… I tried it out over the weekend and love it!

Simply core and cut your apples in half, sprinkle some lemon juice and a little bit of brown sugar on top, microwave for 2 minutes – and VOILA! you have a delicious cooked apple dessert… serve with vanilla ice cream and it is simply delicious:) Not a fan of the microwave? The two cookers are silicone and heat resistant up to 480 degrees F, it takes a bit longer, but warm up your oven and cook your apples in there.

Thanks to its ideal size, you can bake all types of fruits: apples, pears, peaches, berries. Whole or sliced, garnished or lightly sugared, fruits or vegetables – with the lid on – the food cooks in the steam issued from its own juice. As a result, it does not dry out and retains its flavour.

Each set includes: 2 Apple Cookers and 1 Corer. Dishwasher safe.

Although it comes with an apple corer, I don’t love it… I prefer to use the stronger, more practical apple corer from OXO Good Grips.

Happy Cooking,

Chef'n Stem Gem Strawberry Huller In Use

Chef ‘n has developed this super cute Stem Gem – Strawberry Stem remover which works really well getting those super annoying stems out of strawberries.

Although it came out last year, this is the first time we have featured them in the store because of their overwhelming popularity across Canada.

A great new little gadget which, if you love strawberries as much as me… is a super tool to add to your collection!

Pig Tail Food Flipper

June 13, 2011

Pig Tail Food FlipperThis handy Pig Tail Food Flipper is going to be a must for all Father’s Day gifts this year!

It is the handy-est cooking tool you’ll ever own… as I have done for the last year since I picked one up at the Calgary Stampede and just LOVED it.

It is great for turning, flipping and carrying food easily in the kitchen or on the grill.  We love using ours and have found that it saves always getting out your tongs, forks or spatulas and works more efficiently because of the dexterty it offers you when handling food.

Buy it for Dad, Hubby or brother – t’will not disappoint.

12″ – $13.00

19″ – $15.00

Set of 2 (1 of each size) – $25.00


Chef ‘n Bananza Banana Slicer

February 25, 2011

Chef'n Bananza Hand-held Banana Slicer

A new tool from Chef ‘n is their Bananza Banana Slicer which we just recently got into the store.  I got to try it out at the CGTA gift show in Toronto and it works so well that I’m going to take one home for my kids. 

My daughter is in grade one now and has become quite independent in the kitchen with making her own breakfast and helping to make and pack her lunch.  To ensure that this habit continues… I’m going to take the bananza home to her and get her to try it out.  I think adding banana onto her cereal in the morning, or for putting in her lunch sliced up, will empower her to eat more bananas… the one thing that seems to come back at the end of the day:)

I won’t mention at this point how hilarious and slightly guillotine-esque this appears when you see it work from the side, but dispite looks, functions very well.  So other than function, it will make a great gag gift for any bachelorette party this summer!
