Kitchen Gifts for the Seriously Busy Person

Do you know someone who loves to cook but they don’t have the time?    I wouldn’t be able to cook delicious Mediterranean meals every day without the use of my favorite culinary gadgets.  The way I see it, spending a few hundreds dollars on time saving tools saves me thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars because I cook more at home and eat out less (and I eat much healthier at home).  Eating the Mediterranean Diet is easy when you have the right recipes and the right equipment.
