Haven't thought of an appropriate Mother's Day gift for mom yet? Neither has Retail Therapist
. So we're just going to do a little brainstorming here—no bad ideas. Idea numero uno: the Swissmar V-Prep Mandoline vegetable slicer
, $40 at Sur La Table
chose this particular version of Mandoline for the non-skid feet that keep it stable, the food safety holder (so you avoid slicing yourself) and its reasonable price. Sur La Table, 1102 NW Couch St., (503) 295-9679.
