“I haven’t cooked so much in ages!”

Posted in The Chef's Toolbox with tags , , , , , on November 23, 2008 by lickthebowlcomau

home-made-pizzaThe really gratifying thing about The Chef’s Toolbox products and parties is that they re-ignite that passion for cooking in people.  Seriously, even those who would previously rather eat the cardboard pizza box instead of lighting the stove have reported that they are back in the kitchen and loving it.

Think of it this way …

To buy a chain-store pizza, you need to wait about 30-60 minutes before it arrives.  You could pick it up sooner but the thought of getting in the car when you’d rather not change out of your jammies or find your shoes, is just too much.

Keep your ingredients on hand
You can literally make a Stove Top Pizza in under 30 minutes!  It’s SO easy and the results are far better, healthier and tastier than anything that can be dropped off at your door.  Just keep handy some plain flour, self raising flour, a pack of yeast sachets, some pizza cheese and anything else you’d care to throw on top of it.  While it’s cooking, you clean up the few utensils you used and put the ingredients away and by the time that’s done, your pizza is ready!

So many of my customers comment that they’d now rather whip up a Stove Top Pizza in their Chef’s Toolbox Saute Pan than bother with calling a chain pizza store.  Others have quickly built their repertoire to include risotto, pizza scrolls, chicken and leek pie, and lots of other recipes that you can find at Lick The Bowl or on the Chef’s Toolbox website.

Turn over a new leaf in the kitchen
“I haven’t cooked so much in ages!” is a familiar cry, and it’s usually followed up by “AND I’m enjoying it!” Now that’s the real telling point!  To be in the kitchen and not feeling a sense of drudgery is just gold!

Contact me for your inspiration
All you need is a burst of inspiration and that can come from buying some beautiful new cookware, attending a Chef’s Toolbox cooking party, exchanging ideas with other frazzled cooks or even just communicating with ME with some questions about easy peasy recipes you can cook for your family or yourself.

Go to the Contact Me page and drop me a line.  If I can’t come up with some clever and easy recipes for you, I’ll find someone who can!

Nothing sticks to the Saute Pan!!

Posted in The Chef's Toolbox with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2008 by lickthebowlcomau

For any non-believers who think jam is a mess no matter what you cook it in, I have the gospel for you!  And the word is … (ok two words) … SAUTE PAN!!

Take a look at these photos and tell me it’s not a brilliant non-stick pan.

I cooked down almost 2kgs (minus the ones I couldn’t resist eating) of luscious strawberries and at the end, added about a cup of sugar.  I prefer my jam on the not-so-sickly-sweet side.  I’d always steered clear of making jam because of the fact that it seemed time-consuming, messy and complicated.  But hey,  no one says you have to sterilise jars and make bucketloads of the stuff!!  Just grab 3 or 4 punnets from your fruit shop, hull them, wash them, cut them in half and throw them in your Chef’s Toolbox Saute Pan.

Cook the strawberries down and stir as often as is necessary.  Since the Saute Pan is so beautifully non-stick, you don’t have to be a slave to your stove!  Gotta love that!  Add the sugar at the end when the consistency is like, well, JAM!

Guaranteed non-stick jam making!

Guaranteed non-stick jam making!

Spoon into very clean jars while hot and put the lids on.  If you don’t make more than you can eat in say, a month or two, then you really won’t need to go to the trouble of sterilising jars, etc.

When I make other types of jam, I’ll be sure to fill you in on the details!

Please forgive my (lack of) food styling in the photos.  Just wanted to give you an idea of how non-stick the Saute Pan is.
