Chef's Case

It’s easy to be a foodie in your own home, where you have control over all of the ingredients you use, but when you’re traveling it’s not always possible.

Stamp & Style Easter Cookie Cutters

Stamp & Style Easter Cookie Cutters

When I decorate cookies for Easter, I typically use some sort of colored frosting to create the designs, or simply rely on brightly colored sprinkles and candies to give the cookies a holiday look. Like decorating Easter eggs, however, using just two techniques can get a bit boring after a while. It’s nice when Easter eggs look unique, as well, as festive, and the same ... Read More »

Odd Size Measuring Spoons

Most measuring spoon sets have just four spoons: 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp and 1 tbsp. With these four spoons, you can get done all the measuring you need to do for most recipes. That said, there are plenty of times when you might end up with a measurement that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these sizes. For instance, an old recipe might ... Read More »
