Dear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so, when a commenter suggested I create a regular feature for them to recommend some of their favorite products, it was a no-brainer and Reader Recs was born. Today’s recommendations come from GatorGirl, who is 28, newly-ish married, and living in north-central Florida. She loves to cook and do DIY projects, is a huge craft beer fan, and is an avid football fan (Go Eagles!). Fun fact: Her favorite food is pickles! And that’s a picture of her cat over in the corner.
Cuisinart CRC Rice Cooker
One of my favorite kitchen gadgets. This little guy steams veggies and fish, in addition to making killer rice/oatmeal/quinoa. We use ours about twice a week!
Kuhn Rikon Colori Art Chef’s and Paring Knife
Best knives ever. Plus, polka dots!
Rainbow Double Layer Flip Flops
Hands down the best flip flops ever. I wear mine daily, and it takes about three years before they need to be replaced. Plus, the leather is so pretty!
ToyShoppe® Feather Teaser Cat Toy
After buying countless cat toys, I’ve finally found one our cat will play with. It’s great for getting kitty up and moving!
Chi Ceramic 1 Inch Flat Iron
I’ve owned my Chi for over 5 years, and it still works like it’s brand new. The initial price is a little high, but it will last forever! The one-inch size is very versatile–good for long or short hair and to straighten or curl.
If you have some products you’d like to recommend to the DW audience, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to five recommendations. (Write “reader recs” in the subject line please). Your recommendations can be from any store or website, but they need to be accessible online — and I would love it if at least two items could be found on Amazon where I am an affiliate. If your list is a good fit for the site, I’ll ask you to write a brief description of each item/ explain what you love so much about it.
