The spatula set is a pleasure to use. The handles are made to feel comfortable and allow a good grip when using them.
The bright red handle allows me to see it quickly in the drawer and the modern black and red with an accent of silver make them aesthetically pleasing.
These spatulas are very well made and can hold up to everyday use. They are quick to wash up in the sink with a scrubber or can be tossed in the dishwasher for convenience. They can take the heat with no problem up to 410F.
I like that they are versatile and can be used on nonstick, glass and enamel cookware. They make a great gift for those who love to cook. Continue reading
I love my new measuring set that has a comfortable angled handle on them. There is a 4 cup, 2 cups and 1 cup with liters on the left side and cups on the right side.
The cups are made of food grade plastic and wash up easily by hand or in the dishwasher.
I really love how they nest together so they take up a lot less space in the cupboard. The red markings on the side of the cups are easy to read.
These cups are great for both wet and dry measuring. You can get yourself a set here:
They make great gifts for those going off to college or newly married. These are lightweight and durable. Continue reading
These shredders are great because there are no nooks and crannies for meat to get stuck in so they are easy to clean up by popping them into the dishwasher.
These shredders are the best tool for reducing a roast or chicken to shreds in approx 2 minutes and they won’t warp or melt so they are always ready when you are, they even come with a lifetime warranty.
The handles are shaped so they are comfortable and can be used for as long as you need. They can also be used for other tasks, like lifting hot roasts out of the roasting pan. Continue reading
I discovered how important it is to have sink strainers after I managed to totally clog up the disposal in my sink and my husband had to take all the plumbing apart to clean out the mess. I never have to worry about that again with these sink strainers.
I have a double sink and a strainer in each sink so everything gets caught and tossed in the trash, not sent down the drain.
When the strainers get dirty or greasy, I just toss them in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling and ready to keep my sinks clean and unclogged. They never get stained either, and always look nice.
These strainers are very well made and the price is right, too. Continue reading
These cooking shears are a perfect gift for my chef daughter for Christmas. They are heavy duty and made of quality stainless steel with a process that keeps it cleaner and more hygienic. The shears resist corrosion and are easily cleaned with a sponge and Dawn dish detergent, or whatever detergent you use in your kitchen. Continue reading
These spatulas are actually heat resistant up to 400 degrees, so when the phone rings and you hurry to pick it up and accidentally put the spatula down in the hot frying pan, instead of on the cupboard, your spatulas will be just fine. I also like to use them to stir the veggies up in my hot soup, they work great for that. Continue reading
This is a very good magnetic knife holder that I had planned to use in my kitchen but when it arrived, my daughter immediately claimed it and I was happy to give it to her. She is a chef and has a wonderful organized kitchen so this magnetic knife holder was perfect for her. It will keep her kitchen tidy and neat with tools quickly available to use.
This magnetic knife holder can also hold her kitchen scissors or metal spoons she works with to create the wonderful dishes she makes. It is simple for her to glance up from the cutting board and see the knife she needs and retrieve it. Continue reading
This mug has the cutest little saying on it and is well made – great for the
You know when kids are having a tough time and they just need to know you love them, no matter what?
That’s what this mug is for. I have a little granddaughter who has been through the wringer ever since she got here to this earth.
Many hospital stays, lots of prayers and hard work and she is home, going to school and doing well, except…sometimes when she is having a hard day…….she just needs to know everything is okay and she is loved.
I tell her all the time but with this cute mug, she knows I love her with this darling reminder every time she goes to get a drink, especially when I am not there because we live far away from each other.
This sweet little mug is exactly what she needs to put a smile on her face.
It is well made and even if she accidentally knocks it off the table onto the floor, it can take it.
This is a good quality mug, not just a cheap dollar store type, and it is solid, sturdy and okay for kids to use daily.
The handle is just perfect for her to hold as it is comfortable and designed to be able to hang on to the mug without slipping because it is just the right size for her fingers to hold it.
Do you need one for your special someone? I got it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZYJ1S8C Continue reading
These mugs were purchased as a special gift for adoptive parents.
I thought about what they would need and they already had clothing,
diapers, kids stuff but nothing that was for them.
I love these mugs – I have another set that has elephants on them that I bought for my
desk – and I know they are really well made and comfortable to hold so
I am giving them to the new parents.
The way I see it, with sleep deprivation for not only one but two new little ones, they are going to get a lot of use out of these mugs filled with coffee to stay awake!
They are really stable so if the new parents are half asleep in the middle of the night enjoying a cuppa, they can easily set the mug down without it tipping over.
The neat thing about this mugs is that they came in a box that says “Life is a Gift” on it and that is perfect for this present I am giving.
This Moscow Mule mug set is amazing and way better than expected. The first thing I saw was the gorgeous color of the mugs, they are stunning and when I picked them up, I loved the feel and weight of them in my hands. They are beautifully made with very comfortable handles, and the workmanship and detailing of the mugs is exquisite.
There is a sticker on the bottom of the mugs that says “made in India” and I really liked that, too. I have other items made in India and they are quality items. Continue reading
This grill mat is the perfect solution to a mess in the oven that needs to be scrubbed out. Yes, they are meant for backyard grills, but I got them for using in the oven to deal with pizza I heat on the rack, apple pies that boil over and cooked on spills that seem to take ages to clean up after they are baked on.
These wonderful mats are washable and reusable. You can wash them in the top rack of the dishwasher but I find it easier to quickly clean them up with soap and water and pop them back into the oven for future use.
These are non stick for grilling or baking but when baking I don’t set my temp higher than 400 degrees, even though you can cook up to 500 degrees. Most of my recipes call for temperatures 375 to 400 degrees, anyway.
To use them, I can put the food directly on the mat (like I do for pizza) and cook like normal. I only use wood or plastic utensils so I don’t scratch the copper mats. Continue reading
These hot dog forks are very well made. They are sharp enough to put the hot dogs and marshmallows on but not too sharp for kids to use. They come with different colors on the handles so kids can easily tell which one is theirs.
The roasting forks telescope out to 34″ but you can make them as long as you like, if you want to telescope them down to make them shorter. The rubber material on the handle is texturized for a good hold on them so they don’t slip.
They come in a cloth bag for storing later that has a drawstring on the top. The forks are easy to clean up with soap and water and so is the bag. Continue reading
These popsicle maker molds are so quick and easy to use. They are like long narrow ziplock bags that you fill with whatever you would like to make into a frozen treat. Continue reading
These glasses are really beautiful. I love the square shape and the heavy bottom on them, so no accidental tip overs. They came in a gorgeous presentation box that was quite impressive.
These elegant glasses look like art pieces and are made from lead-free clear crystal. The best part for me? They are dishwasher safe. My daughter really loves the shape of the glasses and I love the feel of them in my hands. They are substantial and weighted properly and nicely made in perfect proportion. Continue reading

This is a very well made impressive cheese board. It is made of a slab of slate that has feet on the bottom side so you can get your fingers under the slate board to carry it to the guests. The board comes with chalk for you to write the names of the cheese on the board so you can see at a glance what kinds of cheese are available. The chalk writes easily and well. Continue reading
These beautiful porcelain plates are perfect to serve pre-dinner appetizers. They are made by Dowan and are good quality bone china dishes.
The edges are raised, with the food area recessed to reduce spills and also provide a comfortable way to serve the food on the plates when you are handing them to those who will be eating off them. Continue reading
These shakes are for kids 7 and older but before I give my kids anything, I try it first. Now that I have tried them, the kids might not get them because I love these shakes.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package is that it smelled incredibly good. I ordered the chocolate version. There is also a cookies n cream flavor that I can’t wait to try as well.
I made the shake with water, adding 6 ounces of water to my shaker cup, then I added 1/4 cup of the powdered shake. I screwed the shaker lid on and, well, shook it. That’s what you do with the shaker cup. It has metal wire coil ball that does an amazing job of mixing drinks.
I am pleased with how quickly and well the powder mixed into the water. I popped the cap open and took a sip. The shake tasted as good as it smelled. Chocolate bliss in a cup, and it disappeared pretty quickly. It also kept me feeling full and not hungry for hours.
One serving has 120 calories, 12 g of protein, 12 g of carbohydrates, 3 g of fat,
3 g of Fiber, and 228 mg of Omega 3s. Very healthy. What it doesn’t have is caffeine, high fructose corn syrup or aspartame.
It’s a big thumbs up for this product! It gets even better. You can make it with milk, add bananas or anything else you want to as well. #skinnyblend Continue reading
This cutting board is very well made and not only looks good but feels good to the touch. I do love the look and color of bamboo but one of the reasons I got this one is for health benefits.
Bamboo has antibacterial qualities and will neutralize approx 99.9% of bacteria within 24 hours, as will all wooden cutting boards. Bamboo is also a sustainable resource because of how quickly it regrows. It makes me feel great to use earth friendly cutting board and utensils. I am slowly replacing plastic in my kitchen for health reasons and this is a good choice over plastic cutting boards. Continue reading
