Bru Joy's Kitchen Gadgets Review

As I have mentioned before in my post 5 Must Get Kitchen Gadgets , I am a big fan of gadgets. They may things so much easier. So receiving a garlic press and a julienne peeler was a great opportunity for me. I love cooking with garlic. I use it all the time, crushed especially, to give my oil some flavor before I add things to it. Without a garlic press I either have to but a bottle of already crushed garlic in some oil that is full or preserves or try to crush it myself. Most times my "self-crush" turns into some pieces getting burnt after I slice it up and leaving a taste that I do not want in my food. Having a press is a great addition Bru Joy's press is ergonomic making it especially easy for people like me (with a soft grip) to press garlic quickly and easily. All you have to do is pop in a fresh garlic clove into the chamber and press and you have minced garlic. No hassle. It came in extremely handy when I made my Rasta Pasta last week.

I remember randomly posting this recipe a few years back just making a note of something I made. Now I'm here providing recipes to other people. I never then thought that I would eventually be sharing recipes continuously and to an audience. This dish has become quite a staple in my family's rotation. I can probably make this now with my eyes closed. As a result, I have been able to make some adjustments that I think I should share. It continues to be heavily searched and it's only fair I throw in a few tidbits for you. You can also switch this out with any meat y

If you don't know "food truck pile ups" are basically a group of food trucks meeting up at a designated time for a period of time.The trucks can range from american, to italian, to cupcakes to ice cream treats. And this one was no different

Bru Joy & Ultimate Caribbean Rum Punch

I had a friend coming over that I have not seen for a long time and I decided that I needed to make us a little drink for this South Florida heat. What's the best drink for friends to sip on while catching up? Some Caribbean rum punch. Rum punch is a "go-to" drink for Islanders. It's quick, easy and it includes rum. What else do you need?
