Cooking with kids can be fun. There are lots of ways to get them involved as your little helpers, teaching the basics of cooking and baking, and even having them take on a few tasks themselves once they're old enough.

With Thanksgiving just about here it's time to take a look in your cupboards and see what kitchen appliances and cookware you're missing to make hosting a large dinner easier. Read on to see some items you should treat yourself to to make cooking a large meal a breeze.

Before the Aquasana Powered Water Filtration System, I had tried a few pitcher water filters. They tend to be on the slow side when they work, and because my well water is yellow and smelly, I don’t think they’d be powerful enough to clean this water.

Wrapping feta cheese and fresh mint, dill, parsley or basil in warm Persian bread is especially delicious. I could live off that meal and never get tired of it. But I could never figure out how to get my herbs to last for a long time. I turned to Pinterest for a solution, and discovered the Prepara Herb Savor. I then noticed that Best Buy carried it, and asked them to send me a sample of this kitchen gadget to review.
