On Chef Crushes, Best Buy, and KitchenAid Mixers...

I'm going to admit something to you.  I sometimes get crushes on chefs.  Not like the crush I had on C. Thomas Howell in junior high, but "oh my gosh, how did they come up with that deliciousness" crushes.  Please tell me I'm not alone....I watch Top Chef or Iron Chef and *BOOM*, crush.

more on this baby in a minute. STAY TUNED. (that's called a teaser.)

So, I had the opportunity to go to an event at Best Buy featuring chef Monica Pope.  If you've ever read about good food in Houston, You've read about Monica Pope.  And, she was on Top Chef Masters.  And, when she was on Top Chef, she made me cry.  Basically, LOVE her.
Monica Pope demo at Best Buy
{But do you think I was brave enough to introduce myself at the event?  Nooooo.  I tweeted her when I got home.  Yes, I'm a total dork.}

Best Buy was showcasing their small appliances.  I'll be honest, Best Buy is one of those places where I used to send the boys while I was in Ulta.  "Used to" being the key words.  Have you *been* in Best Buy lately?  Their kitchen and small appliance sections have been updated and, yeah, I could happily spend a few hours there.

Monica Pope demo at Best Buy
Chef Pope used some of the small appliances to make some amazing food.  A Ninja blender to make watermelon gazpacho (I don't even like watermelon, and I LOVED this), a KitchenAid mixer to make the simplest dressing for a massaged kale salad...

...this little boy tried to eat all of the kale salad.  Cute as a button, but I managed to wrestle some away from him.  Y'all.  Life changing.  I said "life changing" about a vegetable.  I know.  I never would have thought to mash up avocados and make a dressing with my KitchenAid!

Monica Pope demo at Best Buy

Can I tell you a story?  I can home so utterly smitten with Chef Pope that I told my husband all I wanted for my birthday later that week was to go to her restaurant, Sparrow.  Oh my gosh...if you live in the Houston area, GO!

The food was so good that I forgot to take pictures of it.  But, I *did* meet Monica.  And, my chef crush continues.

Here's what you need to remember:
  • Best Buy: go in.  check out the small appliance section.  I think you'll be happy.
  • KitchenAid mixer to smash avocados?  Brilliant. 
  • Monica Pope = awesome (Houstonians: Sparrow. Go.)

  21. So I just scrolled through their appliance page (bc browsing kitchen stuff is fun) and these are my thoughts:
    I would LOVE a Ninja blender. My current one...works. and that's it. Also, they have a hotdog toaster? whaaaat? My almost-toddler recently broke the lid to my crock pot, and foil has really been working fine since, but I should probably get a new one sometime.

  160. Ooh, what a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for the chance to enter. ALL of those small appliances are wonderful, though the idea of using a blender that just Gets The Job Done swiftly and with minimal clean-up makes me feel a little weak in the knees.

  161. Woo hoo for giveaways :D ... Well, I want about 75% all the appliances listed, but If I had to choose just one I'll pick the Cuisinart Pizzelle maker- Christmas is around the corner, and it's time to get my pizzelle on!

  162. I've always wanted a food processor. But have never been able to justify the purchase. :) Love the Cuisinart selections.

    As for a chef, I've always loved Bobby Flay.

  163. Funny you are giving one of these away. I was just drooling over them yesterday, telling the hubs he could buy me one and it could count for my birthday and Christmas for a few years. (extreme?...maybe a little but I want one but hate to drop the cash for one when the money would be much better spent on kiddos) So obviously my choice of small appliances would be one of the Kitchenaides or the old fashioned ice cream maker.

  169. As for a chef crush, ohmygoodness I just LOVE Nigella Lawson--her cookbook "How to Be a Domestic Goddess" makes me want to toss my to-do list and stay home baking all day, every day.

  172. I'm not sure whether I'd like a popcorn maker or a panini grill. It's nice to know that if I have to got to Best Buy with my sons, I'll have something to look at now :) colleenmiller@qwestoffice.net

  173. I have a crush on Guy Fieri, or is it his Camaro?! I also like Alton Brown, who was a lot more fun before he got soooo skinny. Thanks for the chances to enter.

  174. I'm intrigued by the Ninja 3-in-1 cooking system. I have their food processor and absolutely love it. I'm sure this one wouldn't disappoint either.
