I’m just going to say this up front. This is an awesome opportunity, so keep reading!
My friends at Hamilton Beach sent me one of their new Professional Series 14 cup Dicing Food Processors and asked me to give it a try, and they were kind enough to offer one to a lucky Chew Nibble Nosh reader as well (keep reading to see how you can enter to win!). My first thought was, “Sure, thanks. That’s so nice of you. But, wait. It dices?” Read more...(1218 words, 11 images, estimated 4:52 mins reading time)
I know what you’re thinking. Shrimp and Grits in a rice cooker? I thought exactly the same thing. But, when my friends at Hamilton Beach offered me their spectacular, multi-functioning 4-20 Cup Rice and Hot Cereal Cooker to try, and then suggested this recipe for Rice Cooker Cajun Shrimp and Grits, I thought, why not! After all, this rice cooker isn’t your average rice cooker. Sure, it cooks rice. Every size and variety. But it also cooks oatmeal, quinoa, cream of wheat, Farro, and other whole grains and dried beans. It has a simmer function for pastas and soups! And it has a steamer basket that loads in the top, so you can cook veggies, meats and fish right along with your rice and grains. It’s a one stop meal maker!

Not too long ago, Corner Bakery Cafe made its debut in the Indianapolis area with a new cafe at Clay Terrace in Carmel. And what a welcome addition it was! Serving fresh, delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, it was exactly what we needed in just the right spot. I’ve been there quite a few times with my family since the grand opening in August. In fact, it’s where my youngest daughter asked to eat on her birthday!
When you walk in the cafe, you’re instantly greeted by an amazing display of fresh-baked goods and pastries.

If you’re an avid reader of this blog, you know that I love a good meal that I can make in my slow cooker. In fact, Fall is my favorite time of year to put one to good use. Days are shorter, kids are busier, and the convenience of having dinner ready to go when we walk in the door after all of our running around makes life just a little bit easier. So, when Hamilton Beach contacted me and asked if I’d like to try their new Programmable Stay or Go 6 Quart Slow Cooker, of course I said yes!

I can’t begin to tell you how an Egg will change the way you grill. We’ve had one for the past couple of years, and trust me when I say that it does some pretty spectacular things for grilled food. My husband’s eyes light up every time I ask him to grill something, and our eyes light up every time he brings in dinner! Read more...(763 words, 8 images, estimated 3:03 mins reading time)
For years now, when I want to indulge in a little treat, odds are you’ll find me walking over to my freezer to grab some sort of Skinny Cow ice cream. In fact, the Skinny Cow ice creams are so popular in my house, that a certain mother (I’m not naming names) has been known to strategically place said ice cream treats in a part of the freezer she knows her children won’t find. Sneaky? Yes, but often necessary.
They are that good. Read more...(437 words, 7 images, estimated 1:45 mins reading time)
