garlic

1. Trudeau Stressless Garlic Press

I cannot tell you how many garlic presses I have gone through over the years. I don’t like the tedious task of mincing garlic and prefer to work with it pressed. Despite the divide in opinions on whether “to press or not”, I actually prefer the taste of pressed. So, as a self-declared garlic press connoisseur, believe me when I tell you that this one tops them all. Easy to use, all one piece and easy to clean.

 

Balanced bites

2. Balanced Bites Podcast

I just love these two – Diane Sanfilippo & Liz Wolfe. They are funny, intelligent and real. Both are incredibly bright, well-spoken nutritionists, bringing to light a world of information on health and wellness.  Take the time to listen; you’ll love their voices and what they have to say.

 

Pasta machine

3. Mercato Atlas Pasta machine

This little baby has been with us since 1993 and while I don’t use it quite as often as I use to, it comes filled with warm memories of making pasta with the girls when they were little. Scott has fond memories of coming home to drying pasta hanging all over the kitchen cabinets and chairs and into the living room. Making homemade pasta with you kids is such a fun thing to do as a family. I brought this out to CA in hopes of experimenting with gluten-free pasta dough… stay tuned!
