A look at some cooking products and food items we had the pleasure of reviewing!


  Knife Sharpener

Chefs Choice Professional Sharpening Station

An easy and quick way to sharpen your knives. Tonia loves the way her Wusthof knives feel after being sharpened by the Chefs Choice Professional Sharpening Station. If your tools in the kitchen aren't working properly, it makes it so much harder to do your job. This is one tool you want on the counter.


  Cuisinart Food Processor

Cuisinart Custom 14 - 14 Cup Food Processor

Tonia loves this food processor because it is one of the first that allows you to mix up a batter and pour it into the bowl without the blade falling into your bowl as well. That really helps and makes the job a lot easier. A big thumbs up for this food processor.






  King Cake

When it's Mardi Gras, it's time for a King Cake.

We got to try a King Cake from Paul's Pastry in Picayune, MS. Last year Paul's Pastry was designated by the "Official Best of" web site as the Best King Cake - the first bakery to receive this King Cake designation. Watch the video. King Cake

Starting the twelfth day after Christmas, King Cake Parties continue until the first day of Lent, ending on Fat Tuesday...Mardi Gras Day! You can order your King Cake from Paul's Pastry any time.

Listen to Tonia's Interview with Sherri Paul Thigpen, owner of Paul's Pastry.

Needless to say, we loved our King Cake.





We love the ICoffee Brewer. It produces a cup of coffee that is more flavorful and full bodied without the bite or bitterness. It brings out the best in both mild and dark roasts. A very smooth cup of coffee, like enjoying a fine wine.

Listen to Tonia's Interview with ICoffee inventor, Bruce Burrows.
