Marinated Mushrooms with Herbs and Practical Pyrex for Food Gifts

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 →

Handy Salt and Pepper Mills by HomeToolz Review and Giveaway

This has got to be one of the favorite things I have gotten for the kitchen in a while. It is a pepper mill (or a salt mill). Isn’t it fun? I really love things like this that are unique and unexpected. As you can see you can post the hand in any way that you want, and yes there was a not-so-nice pose made with the hand right off … Continue Reading →
Fun Fondue Pots from Beka and Easy Fondue Recipes

Fun Fondue Pots from Beka and Easy Fondue Recipes

I love interactive food. Food that you do more with than just put into your mouth, things like making your own or dipping into fondue are just more fun to me. Back in the 70s when I was a kid (no cracks about my age) I remember sometimes there being fondue parties. Oh my! Glorious simmering pots of stocks, cheeses, and chocolates and this fancy long fork with all these … Continue Reading →

3M Filtrete Water Station Review

For some reason I did not write this post sooner, but this is a product that I fell in love with when I saw it at BlogHer ‘10 and I have been using it here in my home for months now. Here is one of the company made videos, but it really is very accurate and shows how it works. It is just over a minute long so it won’t … Continue Reading →
Baby Brezza Twitter Party

Baby Brezza Twitter Party

While I don’t need baby food at this point, I was intrigued about this upcoming Twitter party for the Baby Brezza baby food maker. Making homemade baby food really wasn’t a big trend when Taylor was a baby, but if I had another baby now I would surely give this a try.   Next week you can learn about making homemade baby food plus they are giving away several prizes. … Continue Reading →
Portion Control Containers

Portion Control Containers

The folks at Plastics Make it Possible sent me these tips about some different containers which might be helpful in keeping your food portions in control. This is an area that I know I need to work on myself. While they do mention several products, I would like to add mini containers also. Those little small containers that often come in the variety sets of storage containers are usually a … Continue Reading →
Beka Crepe Pan – Review & Giveaway

Beka Crepe Pan – Review & Giveaway

Hubby loves eggs, over easy is the way he normally eats them. He has a couple of places he loves to get omelets at though for dinner and I usually try a bite of them. A month or two ago I ordered an omelet when we went out to eat and I think he almost fell over, then I did it again, and again. I decided it was time to … Continue Reading →

KitchenAid Pass the Plate for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I have seen various pink products from KitchenAid to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure for a while now. As part of my Breast Cancer Awareness Month coverage I was going to include this, but I found something new when I went to get information for this post. The Pass the Plate program!
