There is a misnomer out there that I would love to bring to the table. (and since this is a post about the kitchen, how apropos is that?!) To those who think us stay and work at home moms have tons of time to cook elaborate meals is sorely mistaken! There are days that I am so busy between home school, work, cleaning and all the other stuff I do, the family is lucky to get Mac and Cheese from a box! I want to give my family the delicious and healthy meals they deserve, but I cannot always make that happen. What I need to do is work smarter in the kitchen and not harder. What I discovered was if I could make cooking easier, I could make great meals in a lot less time. With the amazing products from Lekue USA, I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family.

I was sent the coolest two products that have revolutionized the way I cook. I will admit, I was hesitant to try any microwave cooking products because I imagined they would no cook the food properly. I had visions of hard or rubbery food that no one would want to eat. Instead, I got a pleasant surprise when I used the Pasta Cooker, which sells for $35.00 and the Rice Cooker, which also sells for $35.00. They are both easy peasy to use, you do not need to break the pasta and it takes only a few minutes. I made pasta for the kids in less than 10 minutes, with no boiling water and heavy pots and the pasta was a perfectly cooked as anything I have ever made on the stove. The same can be said about the Rice Cooker. The rice was cooked to a perfect fluffiness and tasted as good as any I could have made in a traditional way. I am ecstatic about my products from Lekue and I know you would be too! Be sure to like them on Facebook and Twitter.
