I love the the apple peeler since a apple peeler For apple is very tedious, this would absolutely make it easier to make a pie

You will need a pot of at least a 6 quart size to handle the volume of this recipe. If your roux pot is not big enough you can transfer the roux to a large pot then add the rest of the ingredients. This is common practice. Add chicken stock, bay leaves, andouille, Tony Chachere's seasoning, Ro*Tel tomatoes, cayenne pepper, and parsley. Allow this to simmer uncovered for 1 hour. Add chicken and saute' 1 more hour stirring every 15 minutes. Serve with rice and sprinkle chopped green onions as a garnish and to add flavor. warm corn bread or crackers. Will serve 10 to 12.

The slow cooker is such a boon for women. Preps are simple and time cooking is reduced so we 're able to do other tasks during the day. I love this appliance-mine is quite old & had a great deal of use. A new one would be just great!

I would love any appliance or gadget to cook with as I have few of my own. My suggestion for Fall meals is to go looking at markets you normally don't go to. I found fresh water chestnuts and it was the first time I ever made it. I am going to review now a food product/drink that is already showing and hopefully can share more foods once I learn how to add any.

Baked Zevia Cola BBQ Chicken Ingredients: Chicken breasts, thighs, the whole thing. Whatever you fancy. This recipe is enough to cover a whole chicken comfortably. 8oz zevia cola, 8oz tomato sauce, small handful of chopped shallots, 2 tsp balsamic vinegar, 2 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Instructions: * Combine all ingredients except for the chicken in a large bowl, stir ans season with salt and pepper to taste and refrigerate for a couple of hours if you can. If not, no worries, it still very tasty and tender without it. *Bake at 350 degrees for roughly 35-60 minutes until the chicken reaches 165 degrees internally. The timing will depend on the size and cut of your chicken, your oven, altitude and its general willingness to agree with you at that particular time. I make it yesterday for my family and they love it.

I love all of these products and would love to win. I love the slow cooker for easy comfort meals in fall, the apple corer is perfect, especially for apple pie and the shaped pans make great holiday desserts and muffins. I would love to see a bowl for snacks for parties and maybe something for vegetarians like another cookbook or vegetable peeler or food processor. Another great tool for holiday baking is a mixer.
