First up: “Tropical Fruit Fun!”
Love Mangoes? Hate cutting them? Here’s a tool that makes it EASY!
For more, visit OXO.
You are a genius! I was going to do something like this some day. Some day. But not in heels. In those plastic sandals you get from the ABC in Hawaii. My favorite shoes. Anyway…
I love this stuff — wrote a post about OXO utensils last summer. I don’t have the mango splitter, but I’ve got about 90% of their tools. Have been collecting them since soon after they started the line.
And, tell me that’s a fake spatula drawer. Otherwise you need to fly me to CA to organize your kitchen. heh heh Very sad. One of my kids had friends over last week and they decided to make cookies. The two 13-year-olds were saying, “Wow! Look at your cabinets! They are soooo pretty and neat!”
13-year-olds??? Well, they are pretty, but I never thought 13-year-olds would notice. (Except mine, who is fastidious in her organization.)
Another things I’ll blog about “some day.” I teach classes on it for heaven’s sake, but it’s a lot easier to TALK about it than take the time to WRITE about it. For now, I’ll just watch you in your heels and apron. And pearls. I did not miss that touch.
Good on you, Kelly!
THANK YOU Alison!!! As a mom to your 6, you HAVE to be organized or I know you’d surely go mad. NO, I am proud to say, that actually IS my real spatula drawer, and the other drawer where the mango splitter is, is the real deal too! HOWEVER, I’m also proud to say that there are countless other parts of my home that actually are quite “pretty” and organized. Like my pearl necklace drawer and my apron drawer. And my high heels all hang neatly behind my closet door 😉
That spatula drawer (and like I said, we have a few too many) is messy, but pretty easy to deal with and find stuff in. A lot of people have those canisters on the counter that hold a lot of cooking tools but I don’t love the idea of counter clutter and “dusty” cooking utensils.
It’s amazing what kids will notice. I’d like one of yours. My 3 girls can live in clutter and mess and doesn’t phase them [sigh]. I’m the opposite. But then again, I balance it by picking and choosing which drawers have to be neat. My brother visited once and actually oohed and aaahed over my kitchen “junk’ drawer. You know the one – with all the misc. buttons, screwdrivers, phone numbers, house keys, paper clips, and eyeglass repair kits… Mine has little sections and a place for all. HA! Another idea for “A Couple of Minutes with Kelly” – Organize your junk drawer. Pearls required.

I love using the mango splitter too! I bought mine off Amazon since it was a bit cheaper than the OXO one but it works great: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E6BR6FG
