    All You Need for Cherry Season

    Cherry season is here!  One of the best fruits of summer, I was so excited when I saw cherries for sale at the market this weekend. My grandma has a cherry tree in her yard and every summer we picked them before the birds could eat them all. Cherries, like peaches and apricots have pits in them. This makes them difficult to put in a smoothie, baking recipe or any desserts. I always used raspberries or strawberries as an option in those situations but now I don’t have to!  If you are a cherry love like me, you HAVE to get the CHERRY CHOPPER. This is a cherry pitter and…

    Cooking with @TheChefDini

    I finally got the Chef Dini!  Ever since I saw the infomercial while I was getting my nails done – I have been obsessed!   This is the all in one, slice, dice and mixer that every kitchen needs. You can make 100’s of recipes and use this tool in your kitchen everyday. Here is the very first thing I made with it… Spinach and Artichoke dip. Yum! Like everything on TV, it is not exactly  what you see.  The Chef Dini is in fact super useful but you have to remember that it is not motorized so you have to still turn it with your hand.  I didn’t chop…
