Welcome to The Gadget Chef

Ok so I'm not really a chef, but I do like to play one in the kitchen. I'm your everyday average guy, who is really into 2 things, food and gadgets! And I love combining the two and experimenting with that.

I've tried many gadgets out there, some with success and some with miserable failures. But my biggest goal is to limit what space I take up with what gadgets. As a person with a less than sizable kitchen, counter top real estate is so important I can't be the type that has several gadgets out all the time, and I'm also the type that if it's not out and handy, I'm likely not to use it.

So through the course of this blog I will give out some info on those items I've gotten over the years and how I use them, and some recipes, and be sure to share yours too, or comment if you've tried them

Super Mario Treats

My son's birthday party was today, and my wife who goes above and beyond in decorating and themes, did it again with my son's Super Mario birthday party.

She had seen an idea on Pinterest, where they make an eight bit Mario from cupcakes.  But since we were just having cake, that wasn't going to be an option to make.  I gave her an idea which I thought would work out even better.

Mario made out of Rice Crispy Treats.

It turned out remarkable, she made 4 batches of crispy treats colored black, blue, red, and normal.

For his hair she covered those pieces in chocolate, a little white chocolate colored yellow for his buttons.

She did an amazing job, and made a real impression on everyone.  What can I say, my wife is pretty impressive in the kitchen, and very artistic.
