There isn't much that makes me smile more than good food. Well, maybe good food and free stuff! Today I'm partnering with Kizmos to make your good food even more fun! I'll be sharing a super easy recipe for Fresh Strawberry Syrup (we're talking . . . two ingredients and a blender, easy) and giving you a chance to win some "happy" kitchen gadgets. First the recipe, then the gadgets.
Don't blink, or you'll miss the recipe. It's really easy and incredibly quick.
Fresh Strawberry Syrup
- 1 cup fresh strawberries (you can use frozen, but fresh is better)
- ½ cup white sugar
- High-powered blender (I use the Blendtec Total Blender.)
Ready for this? Wash the strawberries and plop them into the blender. (If you have a Blendtec, you don't have to cut them or anything.) Add the sugar. Blend until you have a deliciously red syrup. (For the Blendtec, just press the soup button.) Drizzle over your favorite ice cream, cheesecake, pancakes, waffles, french toast . . . you get the idea. Does it get any easier than that?
Now for the gadgets! Kizmos products just make me happy! I love the fun colors and giant smiley faces.
My kiddos have been super excited to try out these happy tools, so I decided to let them help me with the cooking. We took everything over to Grandma and Grandpa's and made them a five-star breakfast (at lunch time)!
Our favorite gadgets are the spoonula (scrapes and stirs) and the pizza cutter. Let me let you in a little secret about pizza cutters. If you have little ones, then pizza cutters are not just for pizza! If you don't enjoy spending your entire breakfast cutting up pancakes, waffles, or french toast, just pull out the pizza cutter! Zip, zip, zip! Your cutting is done, and everyone gets to eat their breakfast while it's hot! Depending on the age of your kiddos, you might never have to cut again! Mine have all mastered the pizza cutter method. (Just do the opposite of my picture. Cut first. Add toppings second. It's a lot less mess.)
Something about cooking and serving with a literal smile makes the job just a little bit more fun!
So, do you want to win some kitchen gadgets? Kizmos is offering everything they sent to me to one lucky reader. Good luck, and enjoy your strawberry syrup!
