New Kitchen


Yes, we finally sold our house! And this is my new kitchen! It's not as big as what I have now but it is newer and I will be able to buy all new appliances as well as adjustable bar stools and other decorating touches.
There is a lot to be done before we move in, and we don't actually have a closing date yet, but I am very excited with the new life coming my way. I hope it will be a much simpler way of living, and since the house and kitchen is smaller, I can have more time for cooking with less time spent cleaning!
I'll keep you updated as the big move gets closers.

The Egg Cracker - a New Gadget!




I was just introduced to a fabulous new little gadget - The Egg Cracker!


I am in the habit of breaking my eggs on the rim of the bowl, and I have to admit that more than once I have dropped egg shells right in my recipe. I'll bet you have done the same. There's nothing worse than biting into a piece of eggshell when no crunch was expected.

With the Egg Cracker, all you have to do is crack the egg on the sharp blade. It makes a nice clean cut, so you just gently pry open the shell and voila! Perfect and ready to drop right in the pan or in your eggshell-free cake mix.

At first I found cleaning a little tricky because of the blade, ( sharps items and my fingers don't go well together) but if you rinse the Egg Cracker under water immediately and don't allow excess egg white to set up, then all you have to do is swish it in some hot water. The fingers never need to touch the blade. It's also dishwasher safe!

Check it out. I'm sure you're going to love this new item! You'll find some good egg recipes on their site also. Now, get crackin', get the Egg Cracker; it's a small thing you can do for yourself.
