Cinnamon Hill Fresh Cinnamon Grater, reviewed

Cinnamon Hill Grater with Cinnamon

Fresh spices are always going to deliver the best flavors in your foods, whether you are cooking or baking. Changing out the jars of ground spices in your spice cabinet is a good idea to keep things fresh, as you don’t want to cook with a jar that has been sitting around dulling in flavor for more than a few months. Freshly ground spices deliver ... Read More »

Hershey’s S’mores Cupcake Mix, reviewed

S'mores Cupcakes

I am a huge s’mores fan. The combination of marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker is always a good one in my book, whether it’s a traditional campfire s’more or a batch of s’mores pancakes. Naturally, when I spotted a box of the new Hershey’s S’mores Cupcake Mix on the baking aisle at the grocery store, I was curious enough to give it a try. Hershey’s ... Read More »

Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker, reviewed

Zoku single pop maker

The Zoku Quick Pop Maker is a neat gadget that allows you to make popsicles in minutes, rather than hours. It works because it has a super cold canister that you freeze in advance – much like the canister for certain types of ice cream makers. The slot for the popsicle is at the center of the canister and is designed to create a pop ... Read More »

Mini Whoopie Pie Pan

I wasn’t entirely sure that I needed a Mini Whoopie Pie Pan when I first heard about them. They’re put out by Wilton and they are lightweight, nonstick pans that bake twenty four tiny cakes at a time. The little cakes are about the size of mini muffin tops, and they are perfect for making bite sized whoopie pies, but they can also be used ... Read More »

Smucker’s Root Beer Magic Shell, reviewed

Root Beer Magic Shell

Root beer floats are one of my favorite hot weather treats. They’re made by pouring root beer over a mug stuffed with vanilla ice cream. The combination of spicy root beer and creamy vanilla ice cream is a match made in heaven. I like the slightly icy “crust” that forms on top of the ice cream just after you add the root beer and find ... Read More »

Jif Cashew Butter, reviewed

Jif Cashew Butter

Peanut butter is the go-to nut butter for most people, but any kind of nut can be turned into a creamy nut butter beacause nuts are so high in fat. About 10 years ago, it would be uncommon to see nut butters that were made with almonds, cashews or sunflower seeds anywhere but health food stores, but these days they are so mainstream that even ...

Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray, reviewed

TJ's Coconut Oil Spray

Coconut oil is a natural vegetable oil made by pressing the oil out of coconut meal. The fat is used in many cooking and baking applications, and it is become more and more common in grocery stores. Typically, coconut oil is found packaged in a jar, and I was surprised to see that Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray took another approach to this oil by ... Read More »

Wilton ColorCups Baking Cups, reviewed

Color Cups

Bright and colorful muffin wrappers are fun to work with because they can completely change the look of a cupcake or muffin from something ordinary into something that draws you in – especially if you are baking for a party or celebration. And anyone who has baked for kids knows that they have even greater appreciation for brightly colored baked goods (no matter how elegant ... Read More »
