This knives are truly legit, not to mention they make prep so much more efficient because you wouldn’t believe how they cut through ingredients with such ease and precision. When it comes to cutlery WÜSTHOF is what you want to own, they have set such a high quality standard. They sent me this same set I’m giving away to review and I couldn’t be more impressed! Working in the kitchen just got a whole lot easier! I love that WÜSTHOF products are guaranteed to be free of defects in materials and craftsmanship and they offer free knife sharpening for $3 per knife. Does it get any better? I mean yes you can go buy another set of knives that is half the price, but we all know it’s likely you are going to be replacing those knives in a number of years. Others can just be so poorly made. So to me, it’s not worth it. You can take a look for yourself at all the various options WÜSTHOF offers (and they aren’t just limited to cutlery), just take a look here.

  • Lynn Sperry: Thank you so much for posting this amazingly fresh cool looking salad. I’m sitting in Arizona reading a book, it’s a hundred and six degrees outside in the beginning of June. I had a tweet from my daughter in law which made me look at my phone. I had sent her and her Mom a picture of your salad with the recipe for this week. I’ve never replied before to a Pinterest post, however, I feel the specially compelled to share with you how wonderful it is that you have a blog. It helps us cool off on this hot summer days.
