Kamikoto Japanese Steel Knives Review

Kamikoto Japanese Steel Knives Review What a treat to receive Kamikoto Japanese-style knives for a review here on the Saucy Dipper. After slicing and dicing a variety of vegetables using the Kanpeki set of three knives — a 7-inch vegetable knife, an 8.5-inch slicing knife, and 5-inch utility knife — the verdict is in: these single-blade steel knives perform much differently than an ordinary set of kitchen knives or a generic...

Question of the Day: What About Those Little Condiment Packets?

Question of the Day: What About Those Little Condiment Packets? We’ve all got one. You know.

A Blade X5 Cut Resistant Gloves Review

A Blade X5 Cut Resistant Gloves Review Not long ago I put my hand in a blender while making a cheese ball. My husband, Jason, felt bad for me and bought me a pair of cut resistant gloves a few days later. Jason didn’t mean to be funny, but it WAS funny. Who puts their hand in the blender anyway?

How Not to Make a Cheese Ball

How Not to Make a Cheese Ball If I tell you something, will you promise not to make fun of me? Will you promise not to hold it against me years to come? You promise? Okay, here goes… I put my hand in a blender.       The cheese ball incident went a little like this: 1) An invitation to a girls-only gathering arrives in my inbox and I immediately start plotting to make a cheese ball, per the special request of the...
