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.

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. (They don’t seem to be listed in the product pages yet, but are announced on the homepage.) I am so getting the AppKins for our office..
Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere wanted a usable knife in a simple design that sits well in the hand and which has an amusing and aesthetically stylish form. So, here it is, their design, the Chop Round Knife. With one hand, easily chop chocolate, herbs, charcuterie, veggies. Totally wishlisted!
Kelli Anderson is a NYC based designer. An incredibly talented designer, I must add. But it doesn’t stop there. She also makes a killer Fudge. (Or Fuuuuuuudge, as she says.) We here at studiomates have been lucky to receive many of her Fudge deliveries in the past few months. Chewing on one of these pieces of heaven a few weeks ago, I asked Kelli if she’d be up for sharing her grandmother’s recipe. Of course, she said. So she went ahead, photographed her process and just put up this blogpost.
Make sure to check out the boxes she uses to deliver her Fuuuuuuudge in. They are handmade and oh-so-georgeous. Total killer!
Fooducate’s iPhone App lets shoppers make better, healthier choices at the supermarket. It empowers you with all the tips and tricks Fooducate’s been writing about on their blog.

The Transfer cutting board shows a simple and effective solution to the old problem of transferring food from the cutting board to the pan. Thanks to a simple cutout it allows you to insert a plate, so that you can just slide your freshly cut ingredients onto it.
Anyone with little ones knows that feeding time can get stressful. Unless you have a kid that just likes everything, feeding a junior can be tricky.
As a mom, I love One Hungry Mama, a blog run by a Brooklyn Mom called Stacey. ‘One Hungry Mama’ is full of wonderful advice on how to make feeding time playful, easy and delicious. I often find myself perusing her recipes and my mouth watering while sitting at my desk. (Doesn’t the above Brown Buttered Cauliflower Pasta look delicious?) I love how Stacey let’s you filter the content by age, ingredient or type.
My friend Jennifer spent the weekend with us and decided put her cooking hat on. She made a soup. No, not just a soup, the *best* soup I’ve ever had. Where did she find the recipe? On a blog called Bitchin’ Camero.
My friend Jenna is one lucky woman, she is married to a chef. (Don’t worry G, I am not complaining, I am a lucky woman as well!) So, Jenna’s husband can cook. Seriously cook. They share their culinary adventures on their blog called Sweet Fine Day. Check out this Stuffed Zucchini Flower post. Mouthwatering, no? This is one of these dishes that reminds me of my vacations in South of France as a kid. And it also reminds me that there are certain dishes that I’d never dare to try myself. Why? I don’t know. But the thought of cooking Stuffed Zucchini Flowers is intimidating, at least to me. Hat tip to Mark! And to Jenna for the beautiful photographs!
