I like small kitchen appliances. I always have. The first kitchen appliance I ever remember being kind of crazy about was one of those sandwich-pocket maker things. I learned how to operate it by the age of six and was making my own crazy sandwich creations every chance I got (probably where my later passion for grilled cheese sammies stemmed from). Some people are tech gadget people (my husband) and some people are kitchen gadget people (me).
I am like a kid with their toys when it comes to kitchen gadgets. I’ll have one toy that I want to play with everyday (my immersion blender, for example), and then I’ll see another one in my toy box and be obsessed with that one for a while. My current favorite toy: My waffle iron. I like waffles a lot, and I think they’re great, but they are not my favorite food. Ever since I made the Roasted Grapefruit Waffles, however, I’ve been wanting to turn everything into a waffle. What else can I stick in there? What else would be cool if transformed into the shape of a waffle? These are my thoughts lately.
