New Food Finds

Just a few public services announcements related to food:

1. This garlic press rocks!

I was always skeptical of garlic presses. I think the first one that I bought bent after one use. And barely pressed any garlic. And an old roommate taught me some easy tricks for chopping garlic. So I wrote off garlic presses as an unnecessary kitchen tool. Until… my amazing friend Krista gifted me with the Pampered Chef garlic press as a holiday present. I can now hardly imagine cooking with garlic before having this gadget. It is sturdy, easy to clean and just plain awesome.

2. Haloumi Cheese rules.

You GRILL it. Last weekend I grilled it, cut it into bite sized pieces and then added it to a pasta salad with Orzo, spinach and basil from the garden and some fresh tomatoes. I highly recommend it.

  1. Thanks for the food tips, shishter! That cheese looks delicious! As good as or better than crispy parmesan?

    Different sort of good.
    It is salty, similar to a feta and great when its grilled. Parm is also awesome crispy but is thin and crispy. The halloumi is more like a cross between a fresh Mozzarella and Feta
