Ok fine, maybe I don’t need another countertop gizmo. Plus I live in a small apartment in New York City, so I really don’t have the space. BUT when I see something truly unique that solves a problem, I just can’t help myself.

Then I discovered Smart Planet’s edible spoon maker, and now I know that I absolutely have to make garlic and parmesan spoons topped with bruschetta. And cookie shot glasses for dessert. Another pressing issue? How to bring my salad to work without it getting soggy by the time lunchtime rolls around. And then I found a snazzy salad bowl meal kit that keeps greens, dressing, and toppings all separate until you’re ready to chow down. See, I really do need more things on my countertop.
