Everyday Chef Challenge

It’s a CLOSE race! One of these lovely bloggers, Elana’s Pantry or Herbivoracious, will be going to Culinary School Bootcamp in a contest that I’m hosting with Pacific Foods! Literally only 20 votes separate the two…..will you pick your favorite?



I’ve just experienced 3 of the most amazing days of my life, and I only have 4 photos to show for it….none of which even came from my camera. Who in their right mind would go to BlogHer Food 2010 to see 250 of my best friends in the world and not bring a camera? Well, apparently the same person …


Thai Sticky Rice Pot

Beautifully designed, modern pot and bamboo basket for steaming Thai sticky rice. Well, of course you can steam regular rice in it too. This is truly steamed rice, vs. rice cookers or cooking in a pot (which actually boil rice, not steam) Buy it at Williams Sonoma $24.95


Giant Gumball Machine

If I had an extra $3,900 to spend, I certainly wouldn’t waste it on this! It holds 14,000 gumballs, enough to add another $9,000 in dental fees to your budget.


Hot Chocolate on a Stick

Just swirl this fine Belgian chocolate on a stick in hot milk and you’ll have the best hot chocolate ever! One of Oprah’s favorites. Choose from Dark Chocolate or Hazelnut, 6 pieces for $18.00


Battleship Ice Cube Tray

You sunk my battleship! Ice cube tray found on The Green Head. Kinda lame design though, it doesn’t even look like a battleship. I think I’d rather have this: Titanic ships and icebergs…. or R2D2 Ice Bucket with Hans Solo ice tray…. Or Space Invaders….
