Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

What's Your Favorite Kitchen Toy?

The kids are spending every other weekend with their dad.  This is a somewhat new transition and takes a little to get used to.  I have awesome friends who check on me often and try to keep me company.  I would rather just hole up in the house and catch up on laundry, reading, TV watching and chillin'.  I've also started working on those weekends.  What I DO enjoy is the opportunity to make meals (for one) that no one else would eat anyway.  Last weekend I treated myself to this...

That's blackened salmon (pre-blackened) and a spinach salad (with tomato, red onion, raisins and feta cheese tossed in balsamic vinaigrette).  I make a meal like this, pour a glass of wine, and settle in for a movie.  It's delightful.
I enjoy cooking and preparing food that isn't nuggets and doesn't contain hot dogs.  I really enjoy prepping the food with this new "toy" I received...

I've always wanted to try a ceramic knife so when I was offered the opportunity to review one I jumped on it.  This ceramic knife blade is made from zirconium oxide and is stronger than steel.  It is high-pressure molded before being heated (temps above 1000C) for several days.  The blade is then ground and polished on a diamond wheel before being attached to the handle.  This stronger material means it stays sharper longer than typical steel blades.  It's also really pretty.  What can I say, I'm a knife person.  Dull knives ruin the prepping experience.  I love my onions thinly sliced and this knife did the trick with sheer perfection.
