Since we have joined a community supported agriculture (CSA) program and are now getting loaded down with fresh veggies every week, I’m spending a lot of time with my new cutting boards from Dexas. I have three new boards that are just perfect for what I need, and having more than one gives me the opportunity to have a little helper in my kitchen. Darah ALWAYS chooses the apple cutting board, and asks me to choose the tomato cutting board. I’m happy to oblige, because I think the tomato is so cute! Both of these designs are absolutely perfect for the petite chefs you may have in your house. Even though Darah isn’t getting to cut the veggies at this point, I always put some on her board to inspect and to scrub for me. We talk about what each veggie is, the color it is, and I show her what it looks like on the inside. We also talk about which parts we can eat, and which parts we need to compost. She’s getting a great education while I get lunch or dinner ready!
If we are making something that needs to go in the oven, I reach for my amazing silicone grippers (called nib mini-mitts). I love how little space these take up in my kitchen. In fact, they just sit on top of my range for easy access, and that way they don’t take up any drawer space at all! They do a great job of keeping the heat off my fingers as I take stuff out of the oven.
But perhaps one of my very favorite products in their new line are these fabulous ice cube trays. Now, I know what you are thinking, “Why get excited over ice cube trays?” Well, let me tell you! First of all, our freezer doesn’t have an ice maker, so ice cube trays are the only way this girl gets any ice at home. But those traditional long trays just take up too much real estate inside the freezer (we have the smallest standard size fridge. Boo.). These ice cube trays are in the shape of a square! Brilliant. But here’s what is even better: the cube trays are deep, so you get big, fat ice cubes instead of those wimpy ones that usually come from the longer trays. Less space, more ice! ROCK!! They will be for sale at Target in just a few weeks!
If your kitchen could use a pop of color and a bit more fun, especially as a way to get your kids to step up and be your sous chefs, then Dexas products definitely have something to offer you! You can find their great line of products at Amazon and Bed, Bath and Beyond. For a complete listing of retailers, click here.
