When I ask my Hubby, what sounds good for dinner – we both answer together: PASTA.
Pasta always sounds good. Perfectly cooked fettuccine tossed with meat and veggies and covered in creamy sauce is our go-to favorite meal and it just happens to be ridiculously easy to make. Busy parents like us love it!
I have been making carbonara or mushroom fettuccine for years but only recently, feeling a little creative in the kitchen, I started adding a few more ingredients to it. Just a tiny bit more pizzazz. Bacon and chicken in pasta is out of this world. You won’t need any oil to cook the chicken because bacon will release it’s own. Mushrooms and garlic are a match made in heaven and the fragrance of both of them simmering in the pan is one of my favorite! The spinach and red pepper is an unexpected addition but oh-so-delicious. Besides, you need some veggies too.
Quick and easy recipes make dinner time a breeze. But that’s just a half of the success. You need tools that will help you make it all possible.
When you find a kitchen tool that you reach for almost every day, you know you found a good one. So I have a question for you: when you cook at home, what piece of cookware do you use the most? If the answer is a pan, then I have a good one for you. Kitchen Fair’s 10″ fry pan is my new favorite pan. It has not left my stove since I pulled it out of the box. I put it to the test on many different recipes and it delivered. Crepes, omelets, sunny side up eggs, General Tso chicken and creamy chicken sauce for the pasta.
Today I am teaming up with Kitchen Fair to tell you about their products as they are re-entering the U.S. market. Based in Arlington Texas, the company was started in 1982. It became hugely popular in Mexico and other Central-American countries. Kitchen Fair is re-entering the U.S. market with a vast selection of their products. Their Expressions line caught my eye immediately. The 10″ fry pan is not only gorgeous with the sleek burnished stainless steel design and light weight but it’s also made PFOA-free ( also known as Perfluorooctanoic acid used to make nonstick coatings). And that’s very important to me. Additionally, it has a patented Eterna® Black Galaxy non-stick coating and all Kitchen Fair products are made in America. Kitchen Fair is sold via distributors.
