I have a strong belief that everyone deserves to feel like a chef in their own kitchen. Maybe you don’t have the time, patience, or desire to ever making something ultra-fancy or you’re always a little off on your measurements, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting creative, giving it your all, and eating a delicious meal. There’s a wealth of resources at your fingertips thanks to your friend the internet (hi there!) and all you have to do is carry your laptop into the kitchen.
I started cooking for my family just before YouTube was invented, so while I didn’t have the luxury of watching tutorials then, you better bet I take advantage of them now! And slow speed internet definitely didn’t stop me from searching for new recipes, going to cooking forums, and posting my questions all over the place looking for advice. When I got a laptop a few years later, I carried that bulky beast into the kitchen so I could look up multiple recipes at once without printing out whole trees of paper.
Now? Laptops have come a LONG way and I’m still hauling mine into the kitchen every chance I get. My YOGA 3 Pro from Lenovo is my #2 kitchen helper (Spot #1 goes to my cat Peter!) because not only does it give me access to my BFF the internet, it’s so light and thin. Plus I love all the different modes you can use it in: like a regular laptop, completely folded over like a tablet, propped up like a stand, or partially folded over like a tent. I use it like a tablet when I’m perusing my favorite blogs for recipes, prop it up like a stand or tent when I’m following recipes (I can see it on the island when standing by the stove, which is perfect to avoid splatters while cooking!), and then flip it into laptop mode when I’m ready to blog about my recipes, leave a comment on a friends blog, or do some quick research on an ingredient.
Mine came in Clementine Orange — do you think they planned that? I’ll need to start cooking with clementines! But more than the color, I love the hinge! It was inspired by a watch and the hundreds of little pieces of aluminum and steel allow this baby to fold flat. For more info on the YOGA 3 Pro, you can go here (there’s also info on Lenovo’s other 2-in-1s).
You can also check out the Trend Hub to see how other tastemakers used their YOGA 3 Pro or YOGA 2 Tablet Pro and enter to win more giveaways to increase your chance of winner. And yes! That means I get to giveaway a freaking LAPTOP! It might take the Rafflecopter a minute to load, so be patient and then enter to win your very own YOGA 3 Pro, valued at $1,499.99 <– I don’t know about you, but that’d be the biggest prize I ever won, so don’t miss out (See the official rules and regulations here).
