Magimix Vision Toaster, reviewed

Magimix Vision Toaster, reviewed

I love a good piece of toast in the morning. It’s simple, but versatile, so you can enjoy a slice of cinnamon sugar-topped toast or a savory Avocado Toast. I could eat toast just about every day, so my toasters get a lot of use. I say “toasters” because I have had many toasters in my life, and most of them have been pretty lousy. ... Read More »

How to Make Your Own Cake Stands

How to Make Your Own Cake Stands

Cake stands are a great way to present – and accessorize – your cake when you’re ready to serve it. It can be boring to use the same cake stands all the time, though.

3D Sea Creature Cookie Molds

3D Sea Creature Cookie Molds

The biggest complaint that people have about cookie pans and cookie stamps is that they don’t get the level of detail that they want in the finished cookies.

It’s not that I don’t want a cake carrier that looks good – or that I think there is anything visually wrong with the cake carriers in my collection – but a semi-transparent plastic carrier isn’t the most elegant way to present the baked goods that you worked so hard to make, even if ...

It can be done by hand and without special tools when you only need a small quantity of cherries to do, but when you’re planning to bake a couple of pies, cobblers or even cakes, it is well-worth having a cherry ...

Nordic Ware Ice Cream Sandwich Pan

Ice cream sandwiches are a great way to enjoy your favorite flavor of ice cream during the summer, especially if you’re using homemade cookies and can really customize your sandwich flavor combinations. The problem with ice cream sandwiches is that it can be difficult to get the cookies sizes just right. When the two sides of the sandwich don’t match up, you won’t get the ... Read More »

White Mountain Ice Cream Maker

White Mountain Ice Cream Maker

Most home ice cream makers turn out about a quart of ice cream at a time. This is a good amount for solo snacking or for dishing up a few servings for a small group, but it isn’t enough for a crowd. There are some ice cream makers with internal compressors that are able to make batch after batch of ice cream when more is ... Read More »
