Paderno Spiralizer, My New Kitchen Gadget

I think we all love useful kitchen gadgets.  I was searching the web recently and came across the Paderno Spiralizer.  I saw it on William Sonoma.
I also found it on Amazon for $35.96.   If you have Prime, you can have it in two days with free shipping.
This fun machine is so simple to use....no batteries or power, just hand crank.
It has suction cups to keep it in place, while you crank some beautiful shapes.
It features three different blades to produce ribbons, curly shapes, spagetti and rings- 1/8-inch spacing, 1/4-inch spacing, and straight blade for ribbon cuts.

Lovely  vegetable ribbons in minutes.


It is made of durable plastic and it pops in the dishwasher.  Easy clean-up.  It stores the  extra blades in a compartment on the machine.  Quick and easy to use. 
Fresh zucchini and squash, using the spagetti like blade.
 


This is what is left of the zucchini after hand cranking.  It actually looks like a mushroom.



 Use it on cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, squash, apples, potatoes and more.
I love this machine!  


Look at all the veggies and fruit, you can use and have some fun with.  Create lovely vegetable noodle dishes  and beautiful salads, just be hand cranking.  Great for slaws too.




Here's a video of it in action.



I used this machine last night to create a simple veggie stir fry.  My husband hates zucchini, however when I used this machine to create spagetti like  noodles., he absolutely loved it and went back for seconds. You can see, I used zucchini and yellow squash.  It makes great curly fries....sweet potato or regular.
I added olive oil, garlic, left-over green beans,  red pepper, onions and tomatoes.  I topped it off with  some Polenta, tomatoes and Parmesan cheese...Yummy... Be creative, use leftovers and enjoy.

My lovely friend Robyn has a food blog, called Simply Fresh Dinners.  I was telling her about this amazing gadget, because she loves to cook and create healthy meals.  Stop by her blog and check out her amazing dishes. She is an amazing woman and a great friend.


  It was a great hit.  Great gadget for under $40.00


I will be joining these fun linky parties:

Earth Day 2014

Today is Earth day.  We have so much to be thankful for.  Mother Nature has surrounded us in beauty and we need to do our part in keeping this planet clean.

Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.

 On April 22 of each year people around the world plant trees, commute to work by bicycle and pick up trash in their neighborhoods to observe Earth Day, an event created to shine a spotlight on environmental concerns.


Cherrapunji ,India.... The wettest place on Earth.



 Have a great week!

Bird Inspired Table

 Yellow is such a cheerful color, so I thought I would  create a sweet  table with forsthia and  birdies.
I  love using wreaths on my tables, as a backdrop for candles, vases or an birdcage.
They look great with a charger plate and candles. I adore the little bid cage I bought at Ross.




The bird napkin holders are from ZGallerie, along with the Bee flatware from Horchow.
If you are in need of coupon for Horchow, visit The Raw Feed.
I used it already, so it works.  They also have other vendors.


I used my individual cloches on each place setting, with a small bird's nest under the dome.
The bird plates I found at Home Goods.  The Bee plates are from Horchow.
I love these twig chargers.  I believe I bought them from Pottery Barn.



Using cute little egg cups, I added an egg shell with flowers.


This cute bird covered dish I found at Tuesday Mornings, fits in perfectly with the bird theme.


Here's some dark chocolate I created using  decorative molds.
The darling little bunnies are from a girlfriend for my birthday.
Happy Easter everyone.
