2013 Annual Sponsors

Over the last couple years I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing companies and share their products.

Telling you about the ingredients, tools, and items I use in my own kitchen, that make my dishes tasty and my life a little easier, is just another way I hope to enhance your cooking experience here on A Spicy Perspective.

After all, if you came across a product you were crazy over, I would want to hear about it.

I’ve hand-picked the companies I plan to share with you this year, from the brands I buy and use again and again.

These companies produce goods that I feel stand out in flavor, utility or design.


OXO: Innovative kitchen tools that make life worth living, as far as I’m concerned.

Land O’Lakes: Butter that tastes just like grandma churned it.



Shenandoah Cabinetry: This impeccably-designed and highly attractive cabinetry is going in my home this spring–more details to come!




Musselman’s: America’s favorite Apple Butter and my new go-to ingredient.


Emile Henry: The prettiest cookware I’ve ever seen, that happens to cook with extreme precision.

Villeroy & Boch: My beloved dish and barware company, with a pattern for every personality… or mood.




DeLallo: Authentic home-style pasta for when I’m too lazy to make my own pasta. (Which is pretty much all the time.)




Real California Milk and Real California Cheese: Exceptional cheeses and a variety of dairy products (from milk to yogurt) from those famous California cows and some pretty talented dairy artists.


Look for the Seals



Throughout the year, you’ll have the opportunity to see just how useful and/or delicious these items are.

Plus, there are many SURPRISES in store along the way…

Check out my new Sponsors Page for more information about these extraordinary companies.

    Sommer, what an outstanding way to unveil your sponsors for 2013! I appreciate how you provided an “opt-in” for your readers to read even more. (Yes, I clicked through and read every word about each company and the usefulness each offers.) Most importantly, I appreciate how crucial it is for you to maintain the trust of your readers as well as how selective you were (with strict criteria) when deciding which companies to work with this year and how they must fit your brand of excellence here at A Spicy Perspective. Wishing you and your sponsors all the best in 2013!


  19. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cookingposted February 1, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    Great line up of brands, Sommer! I adore Emile Henry cookware…


  20. Angelaposted February 1, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    hah I totally agree with you about OXO – their products are hard to beat!!! I have so many of their tools that have stood the test of time over the years. I esp. adore my lemon and citrus juicer.


  21. Jennifer @ Mother Thymeposted February 1, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Such an amazing line up of brands. I have adored the Villeroy & Boch dishes you have shared in your beautiful photos in the past. I look forward to seeing what you have in store this year with these companies. :)
