Essential Gear: AYL Silicone Cooking Gloves

AYL, which I learned stands for "Accessorize Your Life," was kind enough to send us* a pair of their wildly popular silicone cooking gloves to put through their paces. While silicone cooking gloves have been around for a while, AYL's gloves have a new trick up their sleeve--or up their glove, if you want to get technical. Instead of sticky, sweat-inducing silicone on the inside as well, the AYL gloves have a soft, heat-resistant cotton liner, which not only feels better on your hands but improves your grip as your fingers don't slide around inside the gloves.

I used the AYL gloves while cutting corn kernels off hot cobs and moving racks of baby back ribs from the smoker to the grill, and they were great! Gloves help you retain the dexterity needed to handle knives, tongs, or whatever your cooking weapon of choice, and with free fingers and the gloves' textured surface, I found it easy to keep the corn cobs steady while I carefully freed them of their kernels. And because the gloves are silicone, they don't get saturated when handling wet foods. Cleaning barbeque sauce off was easy with a soapy brush (just take care not to get water inside the glove while cleaning).

For a going rate of $18 on Amazon, the AYL Silicone Cooking Gloves are a no-brainer and a must-have in anyone's kitchen.

Nando's Peri Peri Sauce Comes to Atlanta

I first ate at Nando's when studying in London and it was love at first peri-peri spiced bite. The hubs and I have kept a stash of Nando's at the ready for our scrambled eggs for years (thanks Publix British section). Nando, if you're listening, please put some of your restaurants here. Don't just tease us with sauce!

Now you too can become a Nando's fanatic. Thanks to my little brother, Adam Zuckerman for pinch hitting and writing this article! Now for more on their grand entrance into Atlanta...
