Churro Maker

Churro Maker

It is hard to beat a fresh batch of churros, whether you’re enjoying them at a theme park or whipping up a batch in your own kitchen. Since homemade churros tend to be fresher than those you’ll find while you’re out (unless you happen to be in Spain or visiting a restaurant like XOCO in Chicago), it is worth learning to make them if you are ...

Elegant Party Bundt Pan

Elegant Party Bundt

Bundt pans make some of the most visually impressive cakes out there, but the pans themselves are so pretty that there are people who collect them and simply display the pans, rather than baking in them. The new Elegant Party Bundt Pan from Nordic Ware is a pan that I can see ending up in the hands of collectors one day, thanks to its elegant shape and ... Read More »

Chef’n Sweet Spot Ice Cream Sandwich Maker

Ice cream sandwiches are a wonderful treat to enjoy on a hot summer day. I tend to prep them a few days ahead of time because, as they are already frozen, there is no need to make them at the last minute and advance planning means that I have them available whenever a craving strikes.

Chef'n Bramble Berry Basket, reviewed

During the summer, my kitchen is always loaded with berries. Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries all make their way into regular rotation, both for snacking and for baking. My usual routine with berries is to give them a thorough, but gentle, rinse before using them. I’ll store them in the refrigerator if it is hot and the berries are very ripe, or I’ll simply leave ...

Whoopie pie pans are baking pans with shallow cavities that allow you to make perfectly sized rounds of cookie dough or cake batter for making whoopie pies or other sandwich cookies.
