Did Santa bring you something good for the kitchen?

I got the two newest volumes, 6 and 7, of Jen Eloff's Low Carbing Among Friends cookbooks! They're great, just like the ones that preceded them. Love that there are recipes by George Stella, Peggy Hardaway, and other low-carb cooking geniuses, all in the same books.

I also got a new house with a BIG pantry and a lovely island for prepping said recipes, amongst others, LOL!

So what did Santa bring to YOU? Anything fun for your low-carb kitchen?

Sadly, nothing for me, but I'm thrilled to read about your new expanded kitchen!!

I did find the coolest gadget for my grandmother, though... a glass microwave popcorn popper. You can pop with or without oil and/or butter. Tried it out, and it worked like a charm! If only I needed one...

Oh nice, Diz! I've seen something similar but never tried one myself and yup, I am so NOT eating popcorn!

Sorry 'bout that big pic! If I do give in to the popcorn thing, I use one of the old stovetop poppers (probably an antique by now) that has the paddle you spin with a handle on top of the lid. Soooo yummy. DH, who never really liked popcorn, will ask for it sometimes.

I *did* buy myself a brand-new reprint of the 1963 Betty Crocker Cooky Book (since Santa didn't bring it from my list ), though, come to think of it.

I got a new cooktop and range hood! We built our house in 1964 and it still had the original COPPERTONE cooktop, hood and wall oven. I replaced the wall oven about three years ago, and now I have a new cooktop and range hood. Installer is coming next week.

No - but is it wrong that I'm pining for a KitchenAid Vegetable Sheeter? After extensive browsing, they're currently available in Target for roughly half of what one would cost me in the UK (Target will ship to the UK but at present they only offer this in their stores and the postage + taxes would be eye-watering.)

And, I'm pretty sure that, like the Spiralizer, KA will at some point bring out an up-grade model with more blade options and thicknesses than the 2 the present gadget has. I still want one tho'

I finally caved and ordered me an Instant Pot. Does anybody have any good recipes?

Although I really need to clear out some of the things I had to have in the past that I really don't use or didn't like. Need to say bye to the Soda Stream and the Cuisinart Ice-100.

Pan, take a look at my Swedish meatball recipe, where I include directions for the Instant Pot. It's incredibly easy and yummy.

You don't use your ICE-100????? I honestly don't know what I would do without it for making awesome low carb ice cream! I keep the freezer stocked with at least 5 different flavors at any given time. I think if I ever got rid of mine, my husband would divorce me. It's how at hooked him on LC, and the combination of LC ice cream and LC pizza keeps him on this WOE.

No argument, however, on the Soda Stream. Not a fan.

Makes the best hard boiled eggs ever! Peel perfectly every time.

Thanks for the recipe, it looks delicious.

I prefer my Cuisinart Ice-30 2 quart ice cream maker. I found that the recipe I use just didn't freeze very well in the Ice-100. The Ice-30 does use the inserts you have to put in the freezer but I bought a couple extras but it just does a better job plus the 2 quart size solved my problem of the ice cream lofting up and out of the 1.5 qt insert.

Pam, here is a thread with recipes, and there are others as well - I LOVE mine, if I did nothing but make hard-cooked eggs and beans (not together, LOL) in it, it would be worth it for sure! But it's good for SO many things. I hope you enjoy yours!

It's a "Ninja - Precision Processor™ 4-Cup Food Processor with Spiralizer "
It's got the spiralizer attachment with 2 blades (slice and spiralize I think, I've only used the spiralizer part lol); and the food processor has the sharp blade and a dull paddle that you can use for eggs or things that need to be mixed but not chopped.
I used that blade for the fathead dough and it did a great job.

It has no handles anywhere, so it can be tricky if your hands are wet. That's about the only think I don't care for.
