Winter is here and what better way to soothe the cold weather than to pamper yourself, and loved ones, with a hot cooked meal. As an avid cook myself, I’ve decided to invite a couple of friends over for a simple, unpretentious Sunday lunch, and to make everyone comfortable and warm – a hot and steamy vegetable soup was definitely in order.
Potatoes, carrots, various root and squash, onion and garlic, have all invaded my countertop waiting to be sliced… Now, I don’t know about you but I’ve been searching for quite some time now for that special chef knife that would make slicing and preparing food a whole lot easier. Fortunately, a couple of days ago I received the Naifu D67 – a supremely sharp Japanese Damascus steel chef knife, that was just waiting for its chance to shine. Continue reading →

Yesterday, as I was opening my package from Vermont Rolling Pins, the first thing that came to mind was “Craftsmanship”. Smooth and lightweight, my new French rolling pin was nestled in its box, waiting for me to lift it up in my hands and feel the ever-so-smooth Maple wood material and the slightly curved shape of this fabulous cooking tool – The fact that it was light as a feather seemed to make me smile even more.

Hello prettiest of measuring cups ever! I can hardly control my enthusiasm when a product seems to fulfill my highest expectations. You see, I’m one of these modern housewives, who combine taking care of a household with working from home and I must admit that nothing relaxes me more than spending a little time in the kitchen, baking a simple but delicious and favorite chocolate cake. All that in between (or very often during as well) styling, photographing, writing blog posts and articles for Busyboo of course ; ) Continue reading →

Sunday morning is all about treating yourself to a tasty breakfast, and the premium choice of course is a hot Belgian Waffle! But to be honest it never comes out as it should, sometimes it’s burned, other times it still has uncooked parts and worst of all is when the first one is getting cold while you’re working on that second waffle. No more! Recently I’ve got myself the WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker and since then every breakfast is viciously Delicious! Continue reading →

I present you the Colori Ulu from Kuhn Rikon – a unique herb and vegetable Knife that will help you chop veggies and herbs like a super-chef. Continue reading →
I love using fresh herbs. I find that nothing is as satisfying as the smells and flavors that fresh cut herbs add to my cooking. Because I don’t have a “green thumb” I haven’t been very successful at growing my own herbs. I know it’s supposed to be simple to grow them, but all my herb pots seem to die on me.
I purchase my fresh herbs at the farmers market but I always end up throwing most of them out as they don’t keep very well, and drying them defeats the purpose. Then I received the Sagaform Herb Pot, and was introduced to an ingenious way to enjoy fresh herbs. Continue reading →
