Ever wondered how an induction stovetop works? Here a quick explanation in Popular Science from April 2014:
"Inside the range, an electric current passes through copper coils, creating a magnetic field. The field interacts with the bottom of a cooking pot containing ferromagnetic material such as iron or stainless steel. This causes the molecules in the cookware to move, producing heat."
If you are in the market for new cookware make sure they are induction ready because they are the future.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Right? I whole heartedly agree! I just don’t need them on my fingers, I want them in my pans! Yes, that’s right. I have tested Swiss Diamond Cookware and love it. The cookware is made in Switzerland and the coating is reinforced with diamonds.

A fancy meal doesn't have to be complicated. This is a recipe we tried out for a special occasion. Slow cooked beef tenderloin, accordion potatoes, and sugar glazed baby carrots. Mhmm, you are in for a treat!
The Beef: One whole beef tenderloin (4-6 lbs.), tied with kitchen string to keep it together, several springs of fresh thyme and rosemary, 3 sliced garlic cloves, coarse salt, fresh ground black pepper, some olive or canola oil. Dry off the meat with a paper towel, brush with the oil all around and sprinkle the beef generously with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.
