I will announce the winner on Monday, August 30th. Good luck everyone!

In other news, my toe is better but OMG it was like having surgery for my pedicurist to fix it. It hurt so bad I actually cried. Went to Fish Market with my mom last night. It was the first time I had seen her in a couple weeks so it was nice to see her. We went to the Fish Market per usual. They have Ceviche which is new on their menu and it is devine! If you don't know what Ceviche is - it is a dish of raw fish marinated in lime or lemon juice with onions, peppers and seasonings. It is often served as an appitizer. I have had a hard time finding good ceviche so I am glad they have it now :-D

Tonight Dave and I are most likely going to Santa Cruz to get some relief from the heat. It has been over 105 degrees and that usually doesn't happen here. Our new apt. does not have A/C so it has been baking. I hate to even mention it given the weather chaos you all have endured lately but it is miserable (ask TJ!) That is about all for now. Until next time...

  1. Should be cooling down today Katie- hope you get some heat relief! That 105 crap was too much for me! lol

    Great giveaway- my favorite kitchen gadget has to be my food processor. I don't know what I did without it! :)

  2. Favorite kitchen gadget? Hmmm. . .that's a toughie. Probably my heat-resistant silicon spatulas. I use them for everything. Probably own about a dozen. It's getting to be a bit of a habit :)

  4. Stay cool!
    People here are renting hotel rooms to soak up the A/C!
    Not a bad idea, actually.

  5. Hope you cool off soon. My favorite kitchen gadget is my magic bullet but I also love the rice cooker and crockpot. Of course I couldn't live without the toaster and microwave either.

    Sorry about your toe hope it's feeling better really quickly.

  6. Great GIveaway. My favorite kitchen gadget? I can only pick one? hmmm It is a toss up between my grill pan and my awesome nonstick fry pan. I use it almost everyday to make my egg white omelettes.

  7. My current favorite kitchen gadget is my new Immersion Blender! It's a whiz at pureeing soupls in no time flat. Thanks, Katie. I have to check out CSN - never been to their site before. Might be dangerous for me!

  8. My magic bullet. I wonder what I did without it for so long!

  9. Yeah, y'all don't get that kind of heat very often - it's brutal! Sorry you had to go through that much pain with your toe, you poor thing. Not fun to deal with at all!!!

    My favorite (at the moment) kitchen gadget is my collapsible colander - I use it for rinsing fruit on a daily basis and I love that it takes up so much less space in my cupboard!

  11. Man,
    I already follow (shouldn't I get BONUS points for that???) and I don't Tweet and you and I aren't FB friends, sigh. But I LOVE Ceviche! SO YUM! My favorite kitchen gadget? I'm not much of a cook so I'll have to go with the corkscrew because it gets a lot of use. :)

  12. I LOVE my salad spinner! It takes up a LOT of space but it's great! I grow a lot of lettuce and spinach in my garden and it's a breeze to clean up with the spinner!

  13. Hope you toe feels much better & 105 sounds like great heat to me.

  15. I have a super-sharp chef's knife. I use it every single day, without fail. Best purchase ever.

  16. 105? It is hotter in your neck of the woods than my part of Arizona. Unbelievable! You must be cooked.

    My favourite gadget is, hands down, my tongs. I use them for all kinds of tasks from cooking and serving pasta to grilling. I have two lengths and couldn't live without them. My whisk runs an extremely close second. :D

  17. I love my Kitchen Aid Mixer (she's pink)! I make a lot of Christmas cookies. A close second is my grill. I know it's not inside my kitchen but I couldn't live without it!

  18. I love my emersion blender. It's so fun!!

    Great giveaway, glad the toe it better!!

  19. WOW - no A.C. , girl be careful. Drink plenty of water!

    Give Away: I have several favorites, but my favorite new gadget would have to be my Microplane Fine Grater......... Love It!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm not sure I can just pick one kitchen gadget! It might have to be my Kitchenaid mixer but since I consider that an appliance and not a gadget, I'll go with my immersion blender...it's not big enough to be an appliance :-)

  21. I LOVE my George Foreman grill! Use it all the time. I have the one w/ interchangable plates.

  22. My absolute favorite kitchen gadget is my Kitchen Aid Mixer. Too many attachments to count and I swear it practically cooks for me.

    New follower, though long time reader.

    Great giveaway!

  23. I love my avocado slicer. I eat them almost everyday, and I love how it scoops all the way down to the skin and makes even slices in one swoop!

    ReplyDelete
  24. My fave gadget is my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I rarely get to use it b/c DH saw fit to bestow me with the Professional Series which is so big it requires a double batch of anything to mix properly. But I still love it!

  27. You'll be cold in Scruz. It's been a great day over here.


    My fave kitchen gadget is the bullet -type blender because all the protein drinks are whipped up quickly in that thing.
    But don't enter my name. I already have too much stuff in my house.
    See me next week on Hoarders, the Next Generation.

    Thanks for your good wishes.
