One perk to having my wonderful hubby home is that I spend lots more time in the kitchen. Isn't it so true that that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach?? I hate cooking for myself but love to do it for him. I wish I could boast that I am an aaahhhmazing cook, but the reality is I am not. I am still learning.
And with that said I must introduce to you my kitchen side kick. I have not really bought anything for my kitchen since we got most of our items from our wedding, but a friend recommended this to me when she found out I was going to a Pampered Chef Party. I have to say, I LOVE IT!
Meet the Small Micro Cooker from Pampered Chef whom I like to call My Mini Micro. You use it in the microwave and boils water so much faster than on the stove top.
Okay so it's not cute but I use it at least once a day! I bought it mainly to steam vegetables [for us and Boo]. It steams them perfect every time! Plus the handy holes on the lid make it easy to drain the little bit of water.
It also cooks pasta! I have used it to cook the macaroni for my home mac and cheese and the pasta for my italian pasta salad.
I have used it to warm leftovers and even make fudge for ice cream!
I know it can cook rice and I can't wait to make potatoes in it! Apparently, it can make cakes but we shall see about that. I'll let you know if I ever try it. This is one kitchen item I now cannot live without! This has made me a believer in Pampered Chef and who knows, I might just throw a PC party in the future. I had to share because it makes life so much easier, especially when making steamed veggies for the little ones.
