Cook like the pros, Ina, America's Test Kitchen, they all use these...

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, February 11, 2022

Barefoot Contessa, America's Test Kitchen, Cooks Country, Giada, Rachael Ray, Paula Deen,  these are just a few of my favorites who use these stack prep bowls.  And since I'm a devoted follower of cooking shows, the search was on.  I found them on Amazon, I pretty much find everything on Amazon.  That little Prime truck comes wheeling in my drive many times a week and it's just like I'm getting presents, well until the credit card bill comes, anyway. 😳

But why did I need these?  It's because  the one thing that these shows have in common, they use these very same set of ten bowls to measure ingredients ahead of time so when it's time to cook they can just dump, mix and go.  This has been eye opening for me, a total game changer that makes the prep process run so much smoother.  Having everything measured and assembled just works.  Organization is a wonderful thing, it really is.  And besides, at my age, I sometimes forget to add ingredients.  Oh let's face it, it has nothing to do with my age, I've always forgotten to add ingredients, and trust me, it's made for some very interesting dishes over the years.   But when everything is pre-measured and ingredients are checked and rechecked, it's a win-win situation.

But back to my story, after watching these shows and seeing so many people using glass prep bowls, of course I wanted them, too.  I am a pretend chef, after all 😉 Okay, so I'm just a cook, but a girl's gotta dream.  And yes, you can use any bowls out of your cabinet, but these just look so... professional!  So, anyway,  I purchased them last year. I get so excited about anything cooking related and this just makes the process fun. I know, I'm a total geek, but it really does take everything to a new level.  I paid over $40 for this set last year, and the prices have tanked, they're just $23.49 now, Prime, free ship.  It's a good deal...

Mason Cash Mixing Bowls as seen on Pioneer Woman...

Pioneer Woman was giving these away on her blog today, which of course winning one is about as probable as winning the lottery, so I just hopped over to Amazon to check them out.

Well, they aren't cheap folks, but they are wonderful.  But they will also be sold out faster than a New York Minute since Ree featured them on her site.

Here's the link in case you want to salivate along with me.

Butter Bell Crocks, they're a good thing...

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, June 14, 2013


I've had my red Butter Bell Crock for a few years now and it works so well.  You never have to try and soften butter again.

Here's a video explaining how it works.  And here's a link if you want to buy one...


Williams Sonoma Strawberry Huller, it's a good thing!!!!

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, April 06, 2013



This little strawberry huller is just fantastic!  I'm such a kitchen gadget junkie I am and salivate every time I get a Williams Sonoma Catalog, so this was at the top of  my "must have" list when I saw it.  It has fantastic reviews, people love this little huller, and the price was right, only $7.95.  But wait, I love a deal, so I went to Amazon, sure enough they had the same thing on Amazon Prime for $7.95, with free ship no tax.  I ordered this puppy so fast, it arrived in two days and it does it ever work well!

You just plunge it into your berry, twist it, and that white core comes right out.  It's a good thing, ladies, and 'tis the season of the strawberry, so what are you waiting for!

Oh, the link, the link - here you go...
