Gift Sets, A Perfect Gift For Any Season

Holiday shopping is just about upon us and you’re probably going to be faced with the age-old question, “What do you buy for the person that has it all?”

The answer is actually quite simple – food. No, not a fruitcake, unless your recipient happens to like fruitcake, I’m talking about gourmet spices and rubs - the kind of unique and tasty items that everyone loves to receive. Best of all, there are six varieties to choose from, so you can find the right gift pack for any taste buds or personality.

Choose from:
The Latin Flavor Gift Set with blazing flavors Mesa Rosa Chipotle, San Juan Sazon Spice, Cayman Citrus, Puebla Mole Dryglaze, and Saffron rice.

The Asian Fusion Gift Set with tangy Thai Garden and Mongolian Ginger BBQ spices and a Pan Asian Zing Dryglaze. Add a zing to any Asian meal with Siam Jasmine rice and Emperor's Chinese Black rice.

If the decadent Mediterranean Coast flavors are more to your recipient’s liking then give them the Mediterranean Coast Gift Set with Portofino Risotto Tice, Tuscan Villa, Herbes De Provence, magical dried leeks and shallots and Mediterranean Sea Salt.

For the flavor of India try the Indian Heat Gift Set with Baby Basmati Rice, Himalayan Rice, Punjab Red Tandoori, Kashmir Garam Masala and Bombay Blitz Dryglaze.

And for the folks that would rather stay in the good old USA, how about the American BBQ gift set with a tour of the best BBQ in the country including, Chicago Steak & Chop and Sonoma Pepper, Bayou BBQ, Kansas City Classic Rub & Santa Fe BBQ Dryglaze.

Kick these wonderful gourmet gifts up a notch with a travel book of the area, cookbook, or appropriate cooking utensils and you’ll have a gift that will be appreciated for many years to come.

If exotic spices and rubs do not match your recipient’s personality, what about a Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker for those that like to party or a Find a Cure Hot Chocolate Maker with mugs to benefit Susan G Komen for the Cure.

You can’t go wrong giving the gift of fine food to those hard to buy friends. Come to think of it, you can’t go wrong giving the gift of fine food for the rest of your friends either. It is perfect holiday shopping made easy!

The Nu-Wave Oven Pro Can Cook a 16-Pound Turkey and More

With the Thanksgiving holiday rapidly approaching, there’s nothing more intimidating than a houseful of guests expecting the perfect turkey. Moist on the inside, crispy brown skin on the outside and done to complete juicy perfection all the way through - it’s enough pressure to make even gourmet chefs quake in their shoes.

Fortunately, smart chefs have found a way to make the process from frozen turkey to perfectly cooked and delicious bird as simple as mashing those potatoes.

How do they make it so easy?
The Nu-Wave Oven Pro, a countertop infrared oven, combines the power of conduction, convection, and infrared to cook perfectly moist and tender Thanksgiving turkeys. It also grills burgers, steams veggies, bakes cinnamon rolls and broils fish to perfection – and in less time than it would take you to cook them the standard way.

Without the Nu-Wave extender ring, you can cook up to a 10 lb turkey, however when you add the extender ring, you can increase the capacity of your oven by 50% and can cook up to a 16 lb. turkey. That’s enough turkey to feed 16 people.

It’s important to know that the Nu-Wave oven, the only countertop infrared oven to win the Chefs Best Award, is dishwasher safe, easy to store and it doesn’t produce smoke so your home doesn’t fill up with unpleasant scents. If you’re like many people in this country, doing what you can to save the environment and conserve energy, you’ll be happy to know that the Nu-Wave oven is rated at 1500 Watts compared to most conventional ovens at 3400 Watts, and uses as little as 30% of the energy of conventional ovens.

Because the oven is so versatile you can cook your entire Thanksgiving meal in it. Cook your dinner rolls, sweet potatoes, and even your pumpkin pie before or after you’ve cooked your turkey and your Thanksgiving dinner will be earning 5 star results. The time it takes to get it all done will be cut in half – leaving time to enjoy friends and family instead of being chained to the kitchen.
