But…I just LOVE the new “Press This” feature by WordPress! They always do such a great job of improving the way of the blogger.

I now can quickly blog about another person’s blog post or a web page I found or a recipe I enjoyed. So cool!!  If you are a wordpress user and haven’t “installed” this, you should check it out! You may find it super handy!

Weighing, measuring, chopping and cooking.  Competitors keep busy so we are always looking for ways that we can improve efficiency in the kitchen.

I give you…the Acti-fry

T-fal Acti Fry machine

Bakes my sweet potatoes with zero preheating oven time.  I can stir fry my chicken and veggies together with barely any oil (or none).  What else can it do? I don’t know yet! But so far, I am enjoying throwing my food and spices in and walking away to do the laundry or kick my feet up while my “chef” finishes preparing my meal.

I love to cook though…so it definitely takes all the fun out of a wonderful gourmet experience, but it is great for those quickie meals or packing up meals 3, 4, and 5.  Meal 6 can be my magical time of creating flavor explosions.

Have you tried this? Let me know what you think!
