Here's some cool cooking stuff I bought this year, and loved:
Air Fryer. Makes great French fries, chicken wings, and fish...all fried without oil. It's a mini convection oven, easy to use:
|Buy on Amazon: $87|
Spiralizer. Cuts potatoes into cool shapes. Easy to use and clean, does not take up much space:
|Buy on Amazon: $29.98|
NutriBullet. I've had this for about a year now. I use it almost every day. [My smoothie recipe: 1 cup coconut milk, 1TBS cocoa powder, 1TBS flaxseeds, 2TBS potato starch, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 green banana, ice.]:
|Buy on Amazon: $79.99|
Pushup Bars: I'm not big on gyms or fancy equipment, but these are really nice for doing pushups. I try to do at least 100 a day (not all at once!):
|Buy on Amazon: $12.99|
Other Stuff I'm Impressed With
Car Emergency Jump Starter. These used to weigh 10 pounds and did not work all that well. With new battery technology, this is lightweight and easy to use. Get one for your wife or kids, especially if they are prone to dead batteries! Works for cell phones, iPads, etc., too. I was recently stranded 60 miles from town with a dead battery and had to wait hours for a jump start. Now I have one of these in all my vehicles:
|Buy on Amazon: $80|
Drone. This is what my most wonderful wife got me for my birthday this year! I love it. Takes great pictures and easy to fly.
|Buy on Amazon: Expensive, lol|
And speaking of gardens...if you hate winter as much as me, and miss fresh veggies terribly, you'll get a kick out of this!
Aerogarden. Kit comes with everything you need to grow some herbs or leafy veggies.
|Amazon: $99 (shown) - $250. Lots of options.|
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and Christmas.
