As the calendar starts shifting into the warm weather months, the call of the wild starts to beckon. No matter if this call is something that drives us forward back to nature or on to another city of steel and concrete, this lure often means only one thing: road trip. Nowadays, of course, it is easier than ever to stay in touch and also bring along all of our creature comforts. Usually however, that doesn't include the contents of the fridge.
Eating the same food everyday can become very monotonous. Luckily, there is so much variety populating grocery store aisles that it is a fate quite avoidable.

Unless, of course, you don't even use a pan.

Blenders have always been pretty well represented in the kitchen. Even with the proliferation of other whirling-blade kitchen gadgets like food processors and immersion blenders, a good old-fashioned blender is often the best choice for the task. And that includes when they happen to be lime-green or bright fire-engine red.
The Bodum Bistro Blender offers additional modern touches that differentiate it from those of times gone by. If the distinctive color isn't attention-grabbing enough, the "rubber-sprayed" exterior will probably give away the fact that this blender views the landscape of the kitchen countertop as a domain to … Read more
Kitchens are full of compromises. Occasionally ingredients run out, equipment doesn't work properly, and of course, time is always a factor.

Appliances don't always cooperate with what's on the menu.
Kitchen countertops have become landscapes populated by quick and easy meal-makers that can provide an almost endless variety of food options.

A freezer incorporated on the top shelf is perfect for chilling down … Read more
