A few of my favorite things

Through research, experiments and hands on experience, I have come to rely on my favorite food products, gadgets & appliances to help me create good times & great eats!

The Instant Vortex Air Fryer is perfect for anyone from a couch potato to a gourmet cook. This unit stands out above the competition due to smart design & performance.
A notable upgrade from the well known Calphalon Classic Set, the Premier set is my new favorite non-stick cookware. I have tried a lot of pots and pans over the year, but Calphalon remains my favorite. Its non-stick surface is reliable, while also being able to deliver a sear and a crust.
This artisan style cheese grater does just look good, it is good! It turns a typically laborious and messy job into one of art and ease. A great gift for any pasta lover, cheese enthusiast or home cook.
A sheet pan with a raised wire rack insert has multiple uses including keeping air circulating and protein from overcooking on one side.
The KitchenAid pasta roller attachment is by far the best attachment KitchenAid has ever made. Its a game changer for anywhere who makes homemade pasta.
This little gadget keeps the thermometer probe securely in place and can be positioned at any level, so if you are frying in 2 inches of oil or a full pot of jam, you have total control.
A heavy duty Dutch oven is a workhorse in the kitchen - a must have for frying, braising, making soups and stews and more.
No matter the level of cook, everyone should have reliable thermometers in their kitchen. I am a particular advocate of leave in probe thermometers that allow you to monitor temperature while roasting, grilling, and even frying.
Ina Garten's cookbooks are reliable and inspirational. The majority of the recipes I make on a regular basis come from these cookbooks. They also make great gifts!
