Saving Money with FoodSaver on Lunch Meat

Hubby is guest posting today! He wants to share with you all how he saves money on his lunch meat with his FoodSaver.

Throwback Thursday – Serving Tree

Throwback Thursday – Serving Tree

It is Throwback Thursday time again – this item is a little more unique and I’m not sure of the age. My aunt has this lovely little tree, it used to be my grandma’s she said. There are two pieces that slide together to form the standing tree and you place in the bottom tray. Simple design, but very functional. My aunt said it was either an olive or pickle … Continue Reading →

Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Knives

Last week I won two knives from one of my favorite food bloggers, Vanessa Druckman of French Foodie Mom. I love winning kitchen items and I think you can never have too many knives in the kitchen.

Marinated Mushrooms with Herbs and Practical Pyrex for Food Gifts

Not sure what to get someone for the holiday? How about something practical, like Pyrex bakeware or storage and then add a food item with it? This is also a great hostess gift idea I think. You can make prepared food or you can include the raw items and the recipe inside the Pyrex piece. Make sure you include a note that you want them to keep the new Pyrex … Continue Reading →
History and the Electric Knife

History and the Electric Knife

Watch the commercial… Did you break out the electric knife over Thanksgiving? I did not cook this year, but when I do I honestly use my electric knife for the turkey. I actually use it for various other meats during the year too. Now if I only could find a cordless electric knife, that would be even better! Anyway, the folks at GE shared this old promo about the GE … Continue Reading →
