Because the week after Thanksgiving there is a time honored tradition that happens in American refrigerators that goes a little something like this: Yeah…except that we now now …

BF Top 5: Nik’s Favorite Kitchen Gadgets

In general, I’m not big on gadgetry. I have this (false) sense that there is value in mixing, mashing and pureeing things by hand. I even know how to julienne veggies by hand (thanks mom!).
