Peach Pitter and Slicer

Peach Pitter

Getting the pit out of a fresh peach or other stone fruit can be a pain in the butt. While they sometimes pop out when you split the fruit in half, those pits stick in there like glue more often than not – leaving you with some rather creatively shaped slices as you try to get around them. I wouldn’t have thought there was an ... Read More »

Cookeys

Cookeys

Sometimes, it’s hard to pass up a really good looking cookie and these Cookeys were no exception – except for the fact that these cookies aren’t exactly edible. Cookeys are rubbery key caps that are shaped like chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies.

Three Tiered Oven Rack

Three Tiered Oven Rack

But there are times when the standard setup for oven racks just doesn’t cut it and you can’t get everything in that you need to. I would say that this happens most ... Read More »

Maybe it’s because I ate too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid, but this Peanut Butter & Jelly Pouch is just too cute to resist. The soft fabric is stamped with a photo-print of a freshly made peanut butter and jelly sandwich that looks just as tempting as the real thing – it even captured the swirls that a butter knife makes ...
