Try this for your Tuesday dinner and let me know what you think. It’s really good! 🙂
The Today’s Special on HSN is one of my FABfaves! It’s Wolfgang Puck’s 10 piece set of colorful nonstick chef’s knives. This is the perfect Christmas gift for the chef in your life!
I have last year’s set. They came in a really nice gift box that displayed beautifully when opened. They are very sharp and of good quality for an economically priced set. I fell in love with them right away.
This year’s set is slightly different from the last set. This set has a long slicing knife where as my set included a serrated bread knife. Also the large chef’s knife has the hollow holes. My set had a smooth surface. I’m very tempted to order this set just to pick out the knives that I want and I can gift the rest. Hmmmmmmm??? 🙂
Please don’t hesitate to order this set of kitchen knives. And if you gift them, the recipient is going to LOVE you! To order, *click here.*
I’m back with another post about something in my kitchen. Have I turned my blog into a cooking blog? No, but my blog is about what is FABulous to me at any given moment. Right now, I’m into homemade goods and controlling the ingredients that are in the food that I eat. With my recent weight gain (I will lose it, darn it!), my focus is on getting back into shape while still being able to enjoy good quality food. Even though I have my dad’s sweet tooth, the hubby scarfs down most of my sweet treats so I don’t have a chance to over indulge. It works out.
With that being said, my love for a grand kitchen and having all of the gadgets that I THINK I NEED, is in full effect. I shared with you my tricked out hot pink KitchenAid mixer. I absolutely love it and the fact that I have a gorgeously decorated mixer for a fraction of the cost of a custom paint job ($20 versus $500). But what about my hand mixer? It’s a lovely green, but looks odd next to the loveliness that is my hot pink stand mixer. What on Earth shall I do? This…
Isn’t it pretty? I contacted Christy at Flip Flop Graphics and she sent me decals to adorn my hand mixer. Now my mixers look great together in my kitchen.
Did you notice this?
Christy made custom name decals for me. How cute is that? But it does not end there… Continue reading
I am a shopping channel junkie. My discovery of Temp-tations by Tara bakeware has not helped matters. I have been a Temp-tations ordering fool since last October!
Today is the “Cooking on Q” day on QVC. Many of the FABnistas have been waiting on a 16 piece baking set in the hot summer holiday color called Fireworkfetti. Everyone was excited about the special of the day that launched at midnight and in addition, this item was pretty much on everyone’s “must have” list.
Well after staying up wayyyy past my bead time, two hours came an went and there was no site of the Fireworkfetti set. The host mentioned that it sold out, but us FABnistas knew that was pure foolery. It was never an option for us to purchase. The Nistas were NOT having that!
Several FABnistas were on the live chat this morning during the Temp-tations presentation. It was hosted by Lisa, Temp-tations Tara’s right hand. Everyone was asking over and over (Did I mention over again?) about the Fireworkfetti set. We were told that the Fireworkfetti did not make inventory in time, and that they will let us know when they know. Bummer!
Then about halfway through the chat, Lisa announced that the Fireworkfetti set would be availalbe during that 10 am show. I could feel the excitement through my iPad screen. That was wonderful… rejoice!
About a month ago, I purchased my very first KitchenAid stand mixer. I have enjoyed a Kitchen Aid hand mixer for many years (and have owned other brands of stand mixers), but never took the plunge for the KitchenAid stand mixer.
One day one of my FABfave Shopping networks, QVC, had the KitchenAid stand mixer as their Today’s Special Value. It came with two mixing bowls, an additional paddle attachment, and the much sought after splatter shield. The icing on the cake… they had it in the color cranberry, aka HOT PINK! My Sorors know that I had to have that pink mixer!
Since it has arrived I have been a baking fool. From breads, to cakes, to cookies, and more. I have been having a blast with my KitchenAid. That is until I saw Ree Drummond, “The Pioneer Woman” on TV with the cutest KA mixer ever! “I MUST have that,” I thought. I researched and it was a $500 custom paint job. Thanks but no thanks. *insert my giving Ree the side eye here* Here is her amazing mixer.
I was NOT going to pay $500 to trick out my mixer, but was determined to find that look for less. I went on Google, Pinterest, eBay, everywhere. Somehow I came across some ideas on Etsy. This is where I hit the jackpot! Look at my mixer now…
How did I do it? Want the deets? Of course I’m going to share!
I am so the foodie, which is not the best thing when trying to drop a few pounds. Who am I kidding… lots of pounds. But when I saw the presentation of Wolfgang Puck’s automatic rapid pressure last year, I had to give it a try!
I bought it from HSN (Home Shopping Network) as a Today’s Special for $89 with free shipping. As of posting deadline today, it is on sale (regular 129.95) for $99.95 with $12.95 UPS shipping and a two payment flex pay option (2 x $49.98, 3 with HSN card).
On HSN’s website, it’s available in black, blue, orange (my FABfave), and red. Click here to check it out.
