Wow, it is hard to believe that we watched the Vancouver Olympics four years ago and what a wonderful time we had as a nation. Once again, our TV in the store will be tuned into the games for our enjoyment (and yours!). Our best wishes are with all people spending time in Sochi, Russia.

We've compiled gadgets that make cooking soups fun and healthy and a list of soup recipes for you to warm up the winter with!

Mastrad Chip Maker Two Tier

Mastrad Chip Maker Two Tier We know you’ll want to have some munchies on hand while you watch the games this month. Don’t let the festivities turn you into a couch potato. Choose chips made in the Mastrad Chip maker instead of chips from a bag which may contain saturated fats, preservatives and MSG.

Simply lay thinly sliced potatoes (or sweet potatoes or apples or carrots or kale or mango and on and on and on and on) on the chip tray and microwave for 3-5 minutes and you have crispy fat free potato chips.

Mastrad Chip Maker two tier $30

Chefn Coarse GraterChef’n Coarse Grater

I love cheese grated on most soups. Probably because I just love cheese! Try this coarse hand grater by Chef’n. Made of stainless steel etched blades so you can grate in both directions!

It's also good for grating root vegetables or chocolate. Top rack dishwasher safe.

Turn your next pot of soup, stock or stew into a champion by creating a garni (usually parsley, rosemary, basil and other herbs) using the beautiful AdHoc Spice Bomb.

This gadget keeps everything together so no need to fuss with twine.



Bowl Of SoupOf Soup and Love

  • Old Spanish proverb:
    "Of soup and love, the first is best!"
  • Soup can be traced back to almost 6000 BC. The first recorded soup was said to be made from hippopotamus and the hearts of five sparrows.
  • Despite it's French name, vichyssoise (cold potato soup) was first prepared in New York City at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (albeit by French Chef Lois Diat who was born near Vichy, France).
  • The word soup is said to come from the word "sop", which was said to be a stewlike dish where bread was used for sopping up the liquid.
  • Dr. John T. Torrance invented the first condensed soup in 1897 while working as a chemist for the Campbell Soup Company
