Yummyfun Kooking

My daughter is completely obsessed with Yummyfun Kooking, a seriously adorable, quirky cooking show made for kids. (I love watching the show myself.) Ella loves the show so much, she asked me to sign her up for actual cooking classes. And I admit, that makes me happy.

So, here’s a brand new episode that Claire Crespo, the chef in the show and mastermind behind it all, *just* launched:

Ah, so apparently I can’t embed it, but you can watch it here.

Check out Claire’s website at yummyfun.com (warning: Flash Site) or buy her DVDs over on Amazon.

And here’s the Series Trailer:

Pasta Ti Amo

If I had walls for artwork in my kitchen, I would order these typographic prints right now.

Le chef a toujours raison = The chef is always right
Pasta, Ti Amo! = Pasta, I love you

Punchfork

I wrote about Punchfork before and was thrilled to learn that they just introduced an iphone and iPad app. I am in heaven!

It’s a fantastic way to discover the latest recipes and dishes that are trending on popular food blogs like Smitten Kitchen, Simply Recipes, 101 Cookbooks and more.

Also, check out punchfork.com. (Makes me want to get rid of all my cooking books.)

Happy Chopper

Who wouldn’t like to chop onions on a cutting board that is smiling at you? Exactly.

Split Decision Pie Pan

If dessert time at your house sounds like this, “I want apple pie”. “No’ let’s have pecan pie!” … then you’ll need the Split Decision Pie Pan. Why bake one, when you can do two at the same time. The ingenious Split Decision Pie Pan includes two inserts for creating either a traditional full size pie, or two halves.

Hermetus Bottle Opener & Resealer

The Hermetus Bottle Opener is not your usual bottle opener. The resealing function is what sets this gadget apart.

Home Made

This Home Made Cookie Stamp made me laugh!

Robot Measuring Cup

It’s a robot built out of measuring cups. Yep. Very cool.

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters? Yes, please.

Kitchenware that made me smile

I couldn’t help but chuckle at the sight of these Kitchen Utensils over at Fab.com designed by Raia Studio. From left to right: Sud Green Dish Brush, Gaby Green Cheese Grater and Marshall Green Potato Masher. For the next three days you can get them over at Fab.

I admit though, that I am afraid my kids would want to play with them, not ideal, especially in the case of the grater.

Punchfork

Punchfork uses real-time data like tweets and Facebook shares to measure which recipes are grabbing the attention of users. Their proprietary rating system assigns each recipe a popularity score from 1 to 100. The higher a recipe’s score, the more it has been talked about and shared on the web.

Traditional recipe sites list page after page of search results in no discernible order. With Punchfork, you see only the highest quality recipes, presented in a beautiful magazine-like visual layout.

punchfork.com has me incredibly excited: I love you Internet!

Ever since I tasted a Cake Pop I have been wondering how to make them myself. That’s where the Cake Pops Book by Bakerella comes in. Ordered!

gojee

Gojee is a beautifully designed new food lover destination. Tell Gojee what you’re craving and what you have in your kitchen and they’ll spoon feed your eyes something dreamy. Got Flour? Black Pepper? Truffle-laced Whole-grain Farm-swaddled Pork Loin? They got a recipe for that.

Quick Pop Maker

I keep coming back to this Zoku Quick Pop Maker. And now I am trying to convince myself that ‘blogging about it is in fact the new buying’. Hopefully this post will keep me from hitting that buy button.

It looks like so much fun though. (sigh)

Square Eggs

I am totally intrigued by these square eggs which apparently you can make with this Egg Cuber.

Cooking in the Future (1990s)

This video from an early 1990′s AT&T concept video shows a futuristic world of voice recognition, networked computing and nearly sentient robotic sous chefs. Quite amusing.

Leave it up to Fred&Friends to come up with new products that put a smile on your face. I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw this OCD Chef Cutting Board. And the AppKins.
