Kitchen Gadgets Anyone,

Lately this has been my number one. I have been buying some bottled water from Wally Mart and the lids are impossible to remove. So, out of the garage and into the kitchen. Gotta have my water.

Do we need to order for Iowa and one for California? Are you going to name him/her and how do you think Mollie will react?

Hey there my "Shy Irish Lad" ... I'm jealous because your pliers are better than mine that I need to use. So, do you recommend I add yours to my wish list? :-)

Hey, I've got some of those!

I definitely think we should order two. I think we should name him "Humphrey" and her "Lauren". Not sure about Mollie when they start barking ... she might get a little jealous.

I guess I'll have to wait and see if it fits my stove. I visit the lodge site quite often! :)

That slaw sounds good but then anything with avocado sounds good! :)

Pat ... Oh, the Crunchtastic Chicken Chipotle Cornbread sounds so good. And, the avocado is one that DH absolutely loves. And, this would certainly be better than watching him eat a peanut butter sandwich is avocado. I can't wait to try your recipe.

PB Patti,

They are very handy for a lot of tasks in and out of the kitchen. They don't make nearly as much noise as my other method for removing stubborn lids from water bottles. A Sig-Sauer 9mm Semi Automatic. Very effective, but sometimes not much water left in the bottle.

I have several cast iron pans in different sizes and haven't used them in years. Will have to go in basement and dig them out and reseason.

Semi-automatic, very funny!

Thank you. I did not know what my round shaped cast iron with long handle was used for.Then I saw your:Square Pie Iron - Cast Iron. Mine must be a pie iron. It was my grandmother's and I found it in box my mother send me before her passing. I kept it thinking it has a use. I have been having problems with my wifi and at times I can not get it up and running. I have been waiting for my nephew to set up the new one. I better send this before it goes down again. To answer your question you asked when you married, I do live in Vegas.

bandit ... I hope this reaches you before you have WIFI problems. Yes, they have round ones, too. I have both and they are really neat to use. I thought you might live in Vegas, and we are hoping to meet you one of these days when I'm in Vegas. That might not be to far away. Maybe early January. Keeping fingers crossed with our traveling arrangements.

I see you also have all the accessories I would have recommended on that wish list, too. Good job on your research! ;)

Do you have Dutch Oven cooking groups for fun and competitions in your area? They can be lots of fun.

Thought I'd share this recipe, it's a favorite in our house when autumn arrives and pears are in season!

Spiced Pear Cake with Browned Butter Icing

Yield: 2 loaf cakes (12 to 16 servings)

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 60 min


3 medium to large firm pears, peeled-cored- and chopped
2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups Gold Medal® All-Purpose Flour
1 cup Gold Medal® Whole Wheat Flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
4 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) salted butter
2 cups sifted powdered sugar (more or less)
4 to 5 teaspoons boiling hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Arrange your oven rack to the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 5x8-inch loaf pans with nonstick spray.

2. In a medium bowl, toss the pears with the white and brown sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt.

4. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, milk, oil and applesauce. Whisk in the dry ingredients until they are just mixed in (don't over-mix). Stir in the pears and all of their sweet and spicy juices too. Divide the batter between the two pans. Bake 60 to 70 minutes, or until the loaves are baked through and test done (toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean). Let the cakes cool for 15 minutes, then turn them out onto a rack to cool completely.

5. When cake is cool, prepare the icing. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat and stir for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the butter is lightly browned (you will see little flecks of brown throughout the melted butter when it is properly browned). Remove it from the stove and pour it into a bowl. Whisk in 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Add 3 teaspoons of the water and the vanilla. Whisk in more powdered sugar a little at a time until it thick but still pourable (add a teaspoon or two of additional water, if needed). Place paper towels under the rack and drizzle the icing onto the cakes. Serve immediately, or store in a covered container until ready to serve.

Good Morning "Kindle Chefs" ...

We're not too close in distance. We're not too near in miles. But your messages can still touch all of our hearts and thoughts can bring us smiles.

My kitchen gadget for the day ...

Black & Decker JW200 Lids Off Jar Opener, White. I'm including a picture from Ammy, but mine is Black). Opens vacuum sealed jars in seconds. Just touch the button and the lid is off. Great when one has rheumatoid arthritis as I have, and opening jars is really difficult. I love this gadget.

I just discovered yesterday that the no-knead bread cookbooks that I was discussing on the old thread back in the summer are (now) available on Kindle, and are a bit cheaper than the DTB version. I can highly, highly recommend the 1st and have no doubts that the 2nd and 3rd are equally good.

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking
Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients
Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day

No special equipment is needed whatsoever, other than a large bowl or plastic container (about 6 quart size) that is not airtight. You don't need a mixer with a dough hook or even the baking stone that is recommended for the best crust (a heavy pizza pan or baking sheet works fine).

If you'd like to try the basic recipe without buying the book, just to see how it goes, it's available on their website at:

Each recipe makes enough dough for 2-4 loaves or boules, and the dough keeps in the fridge for 7-14 days depending on the recipe. It's about as easy as you can get without going to the store and buying ready-made bread. And even the ones that don't come out quite as well as you hoped they would are still much better than store-bought, and more fun, too!
