Back with a Review and a Smile

Ok, really, I'm back! My son starts school again next week, I've finally got a schedule down for my newly booming jewelry business and my baby, too, and my mind has been returning to posting. It was a busy, fun-filled, work-enjoying summer, but I am sooo ready for fall. For my first post back, I thought I would introduce you all to one of my best friends: the VeggieChop. I use it almost every day, and think it is one of the coolest, most convenient kitchen tools I've ever used (and believe me, I own way too many!)

What is the VeggieChop? It is basically a small hand-powered food processor that works a lot like a pull-geared salad spinner. It is the perfect size for a bowl of guacamole or salsa, and makes baby food in seconds from just about anything. Now, I do own a big, gorgeous Cuisanart processor that can do all sorts of things. But like I said, it's big, is kept in a cupboard making a bit hard to get to, and is harder to wash. So I save that one for larger jobs like processing nuts or making Gazpacho (mmm, summer tomatoes!) My husband bought the VeggieChop for me last year at William-Sonoma for Christmas, and I was a little confused because I had just received the Cuisanart from my mom the month before. But after the first use, I was sold! This little tool is just too cool :)
