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 nifty app let’s you scan the barcode of a food product and then tells you the good and the bad. And it suggests healthier alternatives.
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!
One of the many perks of doing a houseswap is that you get to try other people’s stuff. Take the kitchen for example. During our current amazing stay in Switzerland we get to use different kind of coffee makers, toasters, blenders, pots and lids. And yes, this post is about a multifunction lid. The Lekue Suction Lid has won my heart. (Didn’t know a simple silicone lid could do that.) Watch the video below to get the idea…
For the month of july I will be broadcasting from Switzerland which means I’ll be indulging in way too much Zopf. (pictured above) Zopf is a traditional swiss sunday bread, usually found twisted or plaited.

What better is there on a hot summer day than a Ice Coffee? Well, there’s Ice Coffee and there’s Ice Coffee. Last year I discovered the Porsche of Ice Coffee’s when I ordered one at Love Lane Kitchen on the Northfork and it was served with Icecubes that were made out of coffee. Duh! Such a simple idea! As the ice melts, the coffee doesn’t get watered down. Ever since, I cringe at getting an ice coffee with regular icecubes. I’ll have to pick up some of these Cool Bean Ice Trays.
The Boomerang Wok’s cupped edge is supposed to make it easier to turn your stir-fry ingredients. All you supposedly need is one simple movement with the spatula and voila! I definitely would like to give one of these a try!
Rösti (German pronunciation: [ˈʁøːʃti]; often spelled Röschti in Swiss German) is a Swiss dish consisting mainly of potatoes. It was originally a common breakfast eaten by farmers in the canton of Bern, but today is eaten all over Switzerland and also in many restaurants in the Western World. Many Swiss people consider rösti a national dish. (more over on Wikipedia)
