My husband often watches some odd ball off the wall shows. However, once in a while he comes across a show that I find myself sitting down to watch with him. One of those shows stars our favorite chef Guy Fieri! I love watching him travel across America looking for that whole in the wall restaurant that serves the best of the best.
It should come of no surprise then that Guy Fieri has come out with a line of kitchen tools and cookware. Call me crazy, but I think the idea of a chef creating a line of cooking products makes a whole lot of sense. After all would you trust cookware from Guy Fieri or your plumber? We received a rather large box of Guy Fieri’s amazing products to review and we could not be happier. I absolutely LOVE the products the designs are just….well….FUN! I’m not the only that thought so, even my children (who really aren’t into cookware) made a comment on the cool designs!
The products were created to meet Guy’s specifications, meaning they are strong enough for everyday use but made to last. That seems to be a rarity these days. So many items are made for short term. I don’t know about you but I’m not one to buy a new set of pots and pans every year. Guy’s kitchen tools are designed to make cooking easy, which is great for a novice like myself! These products can be purchased at a Walmart store near
Have you started your holiday shopping yet? If you have a chef, or wanna be chef, in the family why not check out Guy’s product line at your local Walmart, they are sure to make a great holiday gift.

I also mentioned that Guy will be hosting a Twitter party. You know I love a good twitter party so mark your calendars and make sure you are ready to chat about “Good Cooking!” Guy will also share with his fans some of his favorite tools to use in his very own kitchen as well as discuss the designs/concepts behind some of his kitchen tools!
Last but not least, I was so inspired by Guy Fieri’s new cookware I had to give it a try and create one of his amazing recipes. It just sounds spicey!
