by Nan Last Saturday night, our neighbors Shirley and Larry came for one of our irregular get-togethers where we share in planning and prepping a dinner menu. This time I did the entrée—a pork shoulder braised in a mole-like sauce (had cocoa in it) and the dessert (an upside-down pear… MORE

About Me
We are GadgetGals-tm, a team of two women who love food and write about kitchen gadgets at allrecipes and at our own website www.kitchengadgetgals.com. The website provides news, reviews, and know-how about all kinds of kitchenware and small appliances. We have been writing about kitchenware since 2003. Nancy lives on a farm in Iowa and Jan lives in an apartment in New York City. Nancy is left handed and Jan is right handed. Good for testing the comfort of many gadgets. We love to help any and all with food questions gadget advice and concerns related to food prep.
My favorite things to cook
We both like to bake. Nancy lives on an apple farm, so she is more of the expert for all things apple related. Since we both have families, fast daily cooking is a concern to both GadgetGals-tm. Jan loves to entertain and tries out new menu ideas on her guests. Nancy never knows who will drop in at her farm, so she always has a cup of coffee ready to serve with a "treat."
My favorite family cooking traditions
We both celebrate the holidays, through the year, from New Years to Fourth of July to Christmas. We both try to add a new idea or recipe to the menus of the traditional foods the family expects. Jan loves to grill. Nan always holds a Christmas cookie baking day with cousins Cathy and Ann and sometimes Cathy's grandkids.
My cooking triumphs
That we can be reached for cooking and kitchen equipment questions by two means. All Recipes and www.kitchengadgetgals.com
My cooking tragedies
Nancy trying many times to bake a two layer pie of pumpkin and pecan pie with the nuts on top. Never got it to separate into layers though it tasted good! For Jan, sprinkling salt on Bosc pears, thinking it was sugar then baking them. What a taste surprise everyone had at dessert time!
