Special Delivery From Taste of Home Winter 2018 Review
The info booklet included with the box has a product list as well as some little features on keeping food fresh and Julia Child.
Also included was an envelope filled with recipe cards. Just look at that Ginger Plum Tart!
Herb Saver – Retail Value $10.29
I have seen these around before and toyed with the idea of buying one. Basically, this little tube keeps your herbs fresh and hydrated and extends their life quite significantly. Its small enough to fit easily in your fridge door, but is large enough to hold a good amount of herbs. I am a very herb-heavy cook and usually use all I buy in each dish rather than toss them away. This might be a great alternative!
Whip It Good Flour Sack – Retail Value $5.00
I always love keeping these little sacks around the kitchen. They are not absorbent, but I like wrapping freshly baked bread in them or covering other warm dishes with them to hold heat while I get everything set up for dinner. They are also cute to hang on your oven handle to add some sass.
Coq au Vin Spice Blend Pouch – Retail Value $7.00
I am so excited to use this blend in my slow cooker! It is a mix of black pepper, oregano, thyme, and bay leaf. I have ever made Coq au Vin before, but I plan on trying a recipe out with this pouch. I know the blend of chicken, mushrooms, and potatoes would be perfection on a cold winter’s night.
Simply Baked Small Paper Baking Cups – Retail Value $6.25
Cute! I have always thought that special baking cups add even more magic to the perfect muffin or cupcake. These beautiful silver ones have a cute strand of beads print.
Food Huggers – Buy a set of 5 for $12.95
Wow, these are useful. These handy silicone toppers latch on to the ends of fruits and veggies you may not have used entirely to keep them fresh for another meal. I used my yellow one for a lemon I cut for tea and tried the green one out on a cucumber. This brand also makes one shaped for an avocado, which would be life changing!
Joseph Joseph Blade Brush – Retail Value $8.00
This brush is the perfect tool for those crusty forks and knives that are difficult to scrub clean with your normal sponge. The bristles are on the aggressive side, which is exactly what you need! You simply slide the utensils through those green brushes and all that leftover food disappears!
Taste of Home What Can I Cook in My Instant Pot, Air Fryer, Waffle Iron…? – Retail Value $17.99 (found here for $15.05)
I love cookbooks, but I actually don’t own an instant pot, air fryer, or waffle iron. I really want an instant pot, and this book might give me even more reason to take the plunge. Do any of you have an instant pot or air fryer? Were they worth the money?
Verdict: This was my first Special Delivery from Taste of Home box and it had some really nifty kitchen gadgets! Each item sent was actually super useful, and I am in love with the huggers and the Bladebrush. I look forward to having a reason to use the cookbook! This box would be a great gift for the chef in your life.
To Wrap Up:
