You may remember the Eggplant Chili recipe I shared with you last month featured the Chicago Cutlery knives I received to review. I’ve continued using them since then and continue to be amazed at what a difference good knives make with even simple everyday tasks. I’m not always the most enthusiastic cook, especially when it comes to doing the prep work for recipes – cutting and chopping are NOT my favorite things to do. However, having the right knives that make it simple and safer, make the whole process more fun as well.
You may think it is strange to say that having sharper knives is actually safer, but I think we all remember what happened when I decided to use a not-quite-sharp-enough knife in a way that probably wasn’t recommended by, well – anyone! The trick is to pay attention to what you are doing and use knives in the way they are meant to be used – on a non-skid, cutting board. But having a proper knife that is sharp is actually one of the safer ways to cut and chop.
The last two weeks have been a bit rough around here. I caught a killer cold that hung on for forever (it seemed) and resulted in a sore throat, laryngitis, and a nasty cough. I spent some time hunting around the internet and trying different home remedies. This is the one I fell in love with and wanted to share with you! (And with good knives, it’s easy peasy to make as well!!)
Special thanks to Mom Central and Chicago Cutlery for providing the knives used in this demonstration. Having the right knife really makes a world of difference!!
I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Chicago Cutlery and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
