Review: Cave Tools Hook Rack

The folks at Cave Tools contacted us a few weeks ago about reviewing their BBQ/grilling products. They gave us a wide range of tools to choose from, and we chose their hook rack because we actually needed one. If your kitchen is like ours, then it's limited in space and bursting at the seams in kitchen gadgets. Sometimes it's hard to stay organized, and things are just haphazardly shoved into whatever drawer has space. We were looking for something that would be able to hold our bigger grilling tools and free up some space in our drawers. The Cave Tools Stainless Steel 5 Hook Rack fit our needs. 

The hook rack measures 14.25 x 2 inches and has a polished stainless steel finish. Its design is neutral and will fit into many applications, from the kitchen to garage to bathroom to duck blind to "man cave." 

Packaging came with a screwdriver, although we didn't use it. We used our power drill, and it was easy and quick to install onto the side of a cabinet. 

The two screws that came with the rack were long and substantial for holding weight, but we thought it could've been made with a better quality material as it was beginning to show signs of stripping during installation.Two covers were included to snap over the screws to give the rack a clean, slick look.

The hooks seem sturdy and heavy duty. You won't have a problem hanging heavy coats, towels, gardening or home improvement tools on it. If you're a hunter, use this rack to organize your game calls, hunting clothes or dog training gadgets. Durable stainless steel makes it ideal for both outdoor and indoor use. 

The best part about the Cave Tool hook rack is the price and 100% satisfaction guarantee. For a 15% discount on this Cave Tool hook rack, enter HOOKRACK15 at https://cavetools.com/collections/cooking-tools/products/stainless-steel-5-hook-rack

Morel Mushroom Dolmades

Fried, sautéed or simmered in a hearty stew, I haven’t found a recipe where I didn’t like morels. But as a food blogger, I’m constantly challenged to find different ways to utilize wild ingredients every year. This recipe was inspired by one of my good friends who served Greek dolmades at a dinner party last spring. Her husband is Greek so these delicious morsels of tender rice, minced lamb, onion and herbs stuffed in grape leaves show up at their dinner table often. As an appetizer or side, dolmades are supposed to be served cold or at room temperature. This is a great dish if you need to begin preparing dinner the day before.     

When thinking of a new way to prepare morels this year, I thought of Libby’s dolmades dish and how morels, known for being rich and meaty, would make a great alternative to minced lamb. I was right— I made a large batch and they were gone by the next day. The morels added a nice umami element to these little bites. I didn't miss the meat, but the great thing about this dish is that you can fill them with whatever you want. Here’s my simple version of dolmades developed for Outdoor Channel.
