As a new staff member and customer at the wonderful Kitchen Boutique this Trudeau 2-In-1 Glass Rimmer was one of the first things that caught my eye and was an immediate must have!
This 2-In-1 Glass Rimmer is perfect in all ways: a deep rimmer, allowing you to rim any size glass with your favorite mix, (mine is Montreal Steak Spice and celery salt) as well as an integrated juicer. In the past I have used two separate saucers, one with my steak spice mix and one with lime juice. Now that I have this new glass rimmer, that, along with constantly refilling my lime juice and wasting my rim mix, is a thing of the past. I can now serve Caesars to my friends that look as if they were prepared at the local pub, save my rim mix ( the rimmer snaps shut for easy storage!!!) and never worry about refilling my silly saucer of lime juice!!! And if that all wasn’t enough to have me hooked, the reasonable price definitely was. I am one happy Caesar drinker!
I will leave you with my favorite Caesar Recipe for your enjoyment:
THE CLASSIC CAESAR
1 1/2 oz Vodka
2 Dashes Worcestershire Sauce
1 Dash Tabasco Sauce (or more if you like it spicy like I do)
4 oz Clamato Juice
Mix of Montreal Steak Spice and Celery Salt to Rim Glass
Pickled Bean, Asparagus, Celery or a Pickle
Rim Highball Glass by first dipping in fresh squeezed lime juice, then steak spice and celery salt mix. Add ice, vodka,Worcestershire sauce, tabasco and Clamato juice. Stir, garnish glass with a lime wedge and a pickled bean (or your choice of garnish). Enjoy!

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.

Once upon a time, there was this cute little tea towel who met and married a tall man named “snaps” and together they made these cute little baby “snappy towels” that who, when they were bigger, went out into the world and became wonderful members of kitchen households everywhere. Going by their adult name of “hanging tea towels”, cause they liked to just “hang-out” and stay put on oven railings they would make fun of the other tea towels for being so uncoordinated and falling off. They would challenge other tea towels to last longer on the railing than them… they would kick butt at the Tea Towel Olympics every year… they would do anything to become the best tea towel that ever lived.
And so they won the hearts of kitchen gadget lovers everywhere and lived happily ever after, wash after wash.

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.
