Garlic Shaker

Posted on Aug 19, 2016 in Gizmo Girl

We love a passion project, especially when it comes to all things food and wine. We can totally get behind someone who is passionate about garlic; removing the peel from garlic to be specific. That’s why we love this Garlic Shaker…

Know It All Pan

Posted on May 13, 2016 in Gizmo Girl

We admit it: Sometimes, technology is totally over our heads these days. While we love a good hack or anything that improves the flavor of our food, we’re old school when it comes to the actual cooking. So when we say we’ve fallen for something techy, you might want to listen up…

Urban Grilling

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 in Gizmo Girl

We may not seem like the type (hard core foodies who love a good four star meal), but we’re obsessed with all things barbecued. There’s just something so quintessentially simple, satisfying, and well, American, about grilling up burgers, steaks, corn, freshly caught fish, and even peaches…

Indoor Grilling (Yes Really!)

Posted on May 16, 2014 in Gizmo Girl

Sometimes, the best gadgets are the simplest ones. A humble food mill, peerless peeler, or self-explanatory spatula. Now, that it’s warming up outside, our minds and stomachs turn to the grill. Alas, it’s a challenge to grill in the great indoors (nevermind in a kitchen-challenged apartment in New York), which is why the Forman grill is such a home run…

Zero Gravity Spice Rack

Posted on Jan 30, 2014 in Gizmo Girl

Live in New York or pretty much any city in America and you understand the concept of the tragically tiny urban kitchen. Eat-in? Most of us are lucky to have a kitchen at all, settling for mini-fridges, a burner… or two, and (god willing) a microwave. So what’s a spatially challenged chef to do? Give up and eat out… or become a nomadic chef, whipping up dishes in friends with better kitchens apartments…

Posted on Jan 17, 2014 in Gizmo Girl

Of course, you can open a bottle of wine and start drinking. But letting a wine “breath” goes a long away, especially where red wine is concerned. Exposing wine to just the right amount of oxygen not only brings out more flavor, but also enhances the aroma and ensures for a smooth finish…

Easy Crab Cracker

Posted on Aug 16, 2013 in Gizmo Girl

With the end of summer drawing closer, we need to savor the season’s best treats while there’s still time. That means eating all the fresh produce we can find, indulging in scoop upon scoop of adventurously flavored ice cream, and best of all, relishing the wonderfully messy crab boils that are just made for warm weather.
