I love cooking and baking and using awesome implements to do it. I thought I had seen just about everything there was to see when it came to kitchen tools and appliances. But boy was I wrong! Recently after working with Dreamfarm and OXO, I was introduced to some things that tickle the imagination (and make me really happy in the kitchen).
If you’ve never heard of Dreamfarm before, they are a company based in Australia that has come up with some pretty fun and inventive kitchen tools. They combine things like spatulas and spoons, mashers and scrapers, and give them funny names like “Chopulas” and “Smoods.” (“Smoods” kind of sounds like the name of a race Dr. Seuss would have thought up). One of my favorite things they make is called a “Garject.” It’s a garlic press, but so much better than any other garlic press you’ve ever used. It’s called a “Garject” because it ejects the peels when you are done. Like literally catapults them out. You can visit their site to see all their fun products and watch videos of everything in action.
I’m giving away four of their awesome products this month (November 2016). They are the Levups, Levoons, and the Large and Mini Supoons. (I LOVE the Supoons and am going to give them to everyone I know for Christmas!) You can find links for all these right below my first video a bit further on in this post.
Watch my Facebook Live videos all this month to see me demo these products as I make delicious desserts and dishes! Don’t forget to enter to win the Dreamfarm products I showcase and the cookbook, Real Food Slow Cooker Suppers: Easy, Family-Friendly Recipes from Scratch by Samantha Skaggs.

Here’s the first video. I mess up a bunch of times, so it’s good to watch for the entertainment value alone 🙂 Be sure to tune in every Tuesday at 10:00 Mountain Time for fresh live videos and giveaways! Mark it on your calendar and join me on my personal Facebook Page!
Watch now as I make Egg-free Dairy-free Chocolate Cake.
Products highlighted in this video and my affiliate links to Amazon.com to purchase them:
In my second video I demonstrated how to make Orange White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies using the OXO Hand Mixer. My affiliate links to purchase the hand mixer and the other tools I used from Amazon are below the video. (For some reason, this video is not showing up properly here and you can only see the top half. To also see the bottom half–which is kind of important–watch it on Facebook.
In video number three, I showed you how to make Waffle Cones using a waffle cone maker. I also introduced you to Tovolo Ice Cream Containers. These are what I use to store my ice cream. The containers are long and skinny, so they are great space savers in your freezer (they even fit in the door). They are dishwasher safe and come in three fun colors.
Watch the video to learn how you can make waffle cones at home. (If the video below is cropped and you can’t see the bottom, just click on this link to watch it on Facebook). Be sure to get the recipe and see my entire tutorial with step-by-step pictures.
Here are links to the products used in this video. (Note: some of the products have already been linked to above).
In the final video for this month, I demonstrated how to make Pink Lady Salad using the OXO Grape Cutter and Westmark All-purpose Slicer. Watch to see these great tools in action! (One is perfect for getting boys to help in the kitchen). Again, if the bottom part of this video is cut off, you can watch the whole thing here on Facebook.
