How do you like that Peeps? We eat avocado practically every day.

Only used it once so far. It cuts and pits very nicely. The avocado was ripe so the slices were a bit mushed. But it did a good job. Never pitted an avo so easily. It is a bit scary to smack the knife into the pit and then have to pry it off the blade. With this I just place the blades over the pit and twist, push thru the hole and it popped right off into the garbage (the blades are dull so I can't cut myself when my fingers are numb).

DD gave me 2 sets (4) of these for Christmas. I love them!! I made individual Yorkshire pudding sides on Christmas. One recipe made 4 minis.

Cuisinart® Stainless Steel Mini 0.32-Quart Dutch Oven Servers (Set of 2)

I just ordered Maple syrup Powdered and Blackstrap Molasses Powdered from Amazon. I am planning on using for BBQ rub and baked beans. I hope it's good.


Also Burgundy wine powder. I was thinking of using it in salad dressing to start.

Anyone have other recipe suggestions for using my new acquisitions?

I also spied butter powder on Amazon. I am thinking maybe mixing butter powder, sriracha powder, vinegar powder and blue cheese powder together for a buffalo seasoning for popcorn, chips, fries etc.

DD uses sugar maple granular on her salmon when she grills it.

I would try some powder in with pancake batter etc.

Thank you Jimmy.

I'm not a big fish lover but was thinking of BBQ chicken and ribs.

I use McCormick's liquid maple flavor in oatmeal, French toast and waffle/pancake batter. Will try the powder in place of liquid.

A new addition to my tool box. Bear Paws. The best part is I got them for free just for downloading an app that manages my meds (shows info and reminds me to take them). I received an Amazon gift card.

I love these things. Makes short work of shredding a 4 lb. pork butt for Carnitas.

I LOVE my new Braun! I got the basic model plus the masher attachment. I don't use a regular food processor often so I didn't get it.

Masher attachment. Made mashed tatters in seconds.

Mini Fat Dadio 6"X3" pedestal springform pan. I love my large version because it doesn't leak due to the raised pedestal design. I will be using this in my Instant Pot. Obviously for cheesecake BUT also lasagna (maybe tonight) and taco pie plus others I'm sure.

Mini silicone oven mits. Will make removing pans etc. from my Instant Pot but it will be great for removing hot stuff from the microwave oven, regular oven or toaster oven also.

the hand mixer 'storage' is clever - it's not like you can stack things on top of a mixer . . .

does the cord also 'store' in the underbucket thingee?

Yes the cord fits in there also. I’ll take a picture as soon as I can. The storage was what sold me on this make/model. I wanted a new mixer because the lowest speed on my old one was to fast. It would cause splatters especially when making whipped cream.
BTW the attachments from my old mixer fits the new one.

Here's a picture of the bottom storage container with attachments and the cord.

Needed a toaster so I stepped up to a 4 slice. I like the high lift lever, defrost and reheat options. Amazon $39.00
