While wandering through the Housewares show in Chicago this past weekend, one thing was inescapable: NEON COLOR. Subtle earth tones, it was nice knowing you, but you've officially been overwhelmed by your brighter, bolder relative. I felt like I'd been whisked (cooking pun intended) into an endless parade of summer—Tangerine bowls! Watermelon water pitchers! Lime-green measuring cups!—where cooking is all about play, not work.
