Two Bite Tuesday ~ Mixing it Up and Scooping in Out

I used to have a great set of mixing bowls and I don't know what happened to them. I have a sneaky suspicion that I left them at one of my aunt's homes when we were doing our annual Christmas Tamale Making Festival. (Stay tuned for that one in December) Anyway, I've been without real stainless steel mixing bowls for about a decade now. It hasn't really bothered me since I went through a period of time when I was just too busy to be doing much of anything in the kitchen. (I went back to school, FULL TIME to finally get my Bachelor's degree. ~ ASU! ASU! Go Sun Devils). Anyway, lately I've found myself thinking, "Gee, I need to get some mixing bowls."

Sometimes we have to be careful what we put out there in the Universe, 'cause we're sure to get it, however, in this case, I'm thrilled. My cousin, LeiLani (we grew up together) who just became a Pampered Chef consultant sent me her catalog. Woo Hoo, as I flipped through the pages, there they were. Three gleaming bowls calling out my name; "Janet...Janet."

First Bite - Pampered Chef Stainless Mixing Bowls

I couldn't stop there. In one of our conversations, I was telling LeiLani about my little babycakes mini cupcake maker and how I was making a bit of a mess as I poured the batter into the little cups (BTW, it cleans up like a dream). She said, "Oh, well you've got to have our cupcake scooper. It is the perfect amount for a cupcake."

"But I'm making mini cupcakes." I whined.

"Ah, well then, you need the medium one too." She answered.

So, why stop there, I bought the set of three. One, two and three tablespoons. I think the little tiny one will make adorable teeny tiny ice cream scoops, don't you?

Second Bite - Pampered Chef Stainless Steel Scoops

LeiLani is going to be a very successful Pampered Chef consultant. She's an amazing hostess and I am trying to talk her into creating a blog of her own so she can share all of her incredible ideas. I am so excited to be able to share our love of entertaining and making things beautiful and delicious.
