A portion of food favorites:

A few cooking gadgets I'm loving at the moment:

On the far left is my mini mandolin, perfect for slicing up radishes, carrots, and even cucumber spears as thin as paper. I purchased this one at Daiso  for a mere $1.50! Located in the middle is my bright orange juicer and lemon shaped timer.  I used to juice dozens of citrus fruits with just a fork and my arms got really buff but this device has saved me SO much time! The final item in this photo is my (NEW!) "spider." At least I call it a spider because its mesh web helps me capture food from boiling water or hot oil!

Beautiful Farfalle Pasta:

Dress up your table settings by "accordion" 
folding napkins and adding a napkin ring:
