Kitchen Favorites: Snack Bowls

Testing kitchen products puts pieces in my hands that I never would have bought yet now find they fit perfectly into my tiny kitchen. Learn more at
Testing kitchen products for The Spruce Eats puts pieces in my hands that I never would have sought out, like the four Corelle Classic Winter Frost White Bowls I feature in my latest article for the website. These 12-ounce bowls were chosen by another writer as part of a cereal bowl roundup, but after they arrived at my house for testing, it was clear I wanted to bump up a size. Instead of immediately returning the bowls, I held onto them to judge their overall usefulness—and decided they were worth the shelf space to keep permanently.

I rarely eat cereal from these bowls, reserving that for a larger-capacity set that I tested and kept for sailing, picnicking, road tripping, and more. But Corelle’s smaller bowls travel just as well. I use them often at home, too, for snacks, small portions, meal prep, and serving.

Rhubarb–Rosemary Sorbet

Beat the heat with sorbet using affordable ingredients and tools already in your kitchen. Learn more at
For my money, the best way to beat the heat is sorbet. And I do mean money: homemade sorbet can be made with affordable ingredients like in-season fruit, herbs, honey or sugar, and water. You can also make it with tools you likely already have in your kitchen, as I explain this week in my Twice as Tasty column for the Flathead Beacon.

A few tricks help you smooth out sorbet and counteract the ice crystals that can form so quickly when you try to make frozen, nondairy desserts. Ice cream makers and gelato machines may speed up the process, so you can use one if you already own one, but there’s no need to buy a new appliance if you want to enjoy dairy-free sorbets.
