This past holiday season, my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I pointed her to my Amazon wish list. She replied, "But it's the same as last year. You haven't updated it."

Well, that's because I didn't get anything off of it. Ahem.

I retold this anecdote to Kevin, my wonderful husband who had NO time to shop this year, and voila! My Amazon wish list appeared under the tree.

Minus a Kindle. But that's because I never use the iPod he bought me two years ago. Well, not never, but rarely. He's deemed me unworthy of new technology. I can't disagree I suppose.

Anyway, along with a Tom Waits TRIPLE cd set, an immersion blender, a book called Weekend Sewing, a pastry scraper, and a digital picture frame - was THIS:

A microwave smores maker.

I married the most wonderful man in the world.
















A few essentials from the store:














Set up of the high tech machinery. The little arms hold the smore together since the marshmallows go CRAZY in the microwave.














The finished product in the microwave:














Kevin tries a bite:














Kevin declares them to be quite lacking:














The overall result was lacking. The marshmallows don't have the chance to char over an open flame, which is my favorite part of smores. Kevin was definitely not sold on them. Me? I'm headed into the kitchen to give them a second chance. After all, melty chocolate goodness can never be far from wrong.

Very interesting... ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Magpie DATE:Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 12:21:00 PM EST That falls into the "what will they think of next" category... ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous whymommy DATE:Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 5:09:00 PM EST I admit, I was dubious when I saw the comment on FB ... but Kevin looks like he's really enjoying it.

Dubious or no, he's eating 'em! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Susie DATE:Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 8:08:00 PM EST Well, why not? I'm a fan of fad kitchen appliances. Just ask my kids about the slushy maker... ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Kelly Jernigan DATE:Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 10:21:00 PM EST These look amazing - I might just have to go out & get one, now that you have me craving them!!! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Convertible Girl DATE:Thursday, January 7, 2010 at 3:05:00 PM EST Let me know if you need an outside, independent taste-tester ;) ----- --------
