Kitchenart Adjust-A-Burger

Grilling is a great way to feed a crowd. It’s done outdoors, so it’s easy to be social while you work, and you can fit a lot more food onto a barbecue than you can fit into a frying pan on the stove. The hardest part about grilling is getting the timing down. This isn’t a big deal for chicken, which really needs to be ... Read More »

Orka 4-Ice Pops

Popsicles are even easier to make than ice cream because you don’t need an ice cream maker or any other special appliance to make them. What you do need, however is a mold to shape them with. The simplest way to make a popsicle is to use a small paper cup or yogurt container, fill it with juice (or whatever else you choose to use ... Read More »

Pre-Cut Parchment Paper

Pre-Cut Parchment Paper

If you’re baking a cake or bread, and you know that you’re going to need to remove it from the pan after baking, it’s a good idea to try and make the task as easy as possible. You can grease the pan well, which is effective, but it is best to line the pan with parchment paper that won’t stick to either the pan or ... Read More »

Bug Pancake Pan

Bug Mini Pancake Pan

I was out shopping the other day when I came across Nordicware’s new Bug Pancake Pan. The pan was so cute, I almost couldn’t resist taking one home with me. The havy duty pan is nonstick and has silver dollar sized depressions for pancakes in each of seven designs: the dragonfly, snail, butterfly, ladybug, spider, bee, worm and beetle. The bugs are adorable and much ... Read More »

Spilt Milk Cereal Bowl

Spilt Milk Cereal Bowl

The Spilt Milk Cereal Bowl is one of the cutest takes on a cereal bowl that I’ve seen for a long time. From a practical standpoint, the bowl is deep enough to hold plenty of breakfast, but the real attraction is the clever “splash” detailing of the ceramic that makes it look as through milk is coming right out of the bowl. The effect is ... Read More »

All Star Sports Pan

All Star Sports Pan

I love to watch sports, but I’m not the type of sports fan that goes crazy when “my” team wins. I like it when “my” team wins (if I’m rooting for a particular side), of course, but I’d really just rather see a good game. For the big games, I’d prefer to enjoy them with a crowd to share in the excitement  – and, of ... Read More »

Light Bites

Light Bites

Birthday candles are exciting when you’re a kid, and manage to loose some of their appeal as we get older. They look pretty and it never hurts to have an opportunity to make a wish, but they’re just not all that useful. These Light Bites are, however, and they are exciting enough to get be interested in keeping those candles on my birthday cakes! Light ... Read More »

Springform Cake Pan with Two Bottoms

The average vanilla or chocolate cake recipe can be adapted to fit pans of all different shapes and sizes, but once you have a pan selected, that is the only shape you’re going to get for that cake. This is assuming that something doesn’t go horribly wrong with the recipe, resulting in a cake that looks like a science experiment, of course. A bundt pan ... Read More »
