Magnetic Measuring Spoons – You’ll be Stuck on Them

by Julie

I don’t know anyone that has a neat and tidy utensil drawer. Okay, maybe my mom, but thats a whole other story. I constantly find myself digging through a pile of (mostly unused) cooking junk. Why do I have to wade through egg slicers, strawberry hullers, and candy thermometers to get to the only stuff I actually do use… like my measuring spoons?

BerryBreeze – Keeping it Fresh

by Julie


If I had to pick the place where I waste the most money, it would have to be inside my fridge, I buy fresh fruits and veggies, in order to eat healthy, but by the time I get around to preparing them, they have often turned to mush. I feel guilty wasting food, I really have to start eating the vegetables first, and THEN the Twinkies, but until then, check this out…

Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven makes outdoor picnics fun

by Edwin

rapid-wood-fire-pizza-ovenI don’t know about you, but I for one absolutely love to have my food piping hot. As in really, really hot, fresh out of the oven or the wok, depending on which particular cuisine that you are fond of. Picnics can be fun, especially when the weather is absolutely beautiful and you have prepared a fair bit of food to share with your loved one(s). The thing is, the food that you bring to picnics are more often than not no longer fresh as though it was just fixed or cooked in the kitchen, so cold sandwiches and the ilk tend to be the food of choice for many. What if I were to tell you that it is possible to bake your own pizza in the woods?

This is what the $2,700 Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven is all about. Handcrafted in Marche, Italy, the Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven is an outdoor wood-burning oven which can be ready to cook in a matter of just 15 minutes. It will be different from other typical wood burning ovens which require hours of preheating, as this superior oven’s whole cooking chamber has been insulated with basalt, which is a dense, volcanic rock that retains 10 times additional heat compared to the clay or brick that is used in traditional ovens. The oven itself will heat up to 800° F while the domed cooking chamber will result in a natural convection which circulates heat evenly, so that one can cook Neapolitan-style pizza in a matter of three minutes. Now this is pretty neat, don’t you think so?

Ball FreshTech Automatic Home Canner – Awesome Sauce!

by Julie


I’d really like to think of myself as a domestic goddess, effortlessly creating fabulous meals, while wearing a dress, complete with apron and pearls. It would be wonderful if my house was always well ordered and tidy, and that I had time for things like home canning. I have to admit I carved out some time to try it once. Only once… it was simply too difficult, too time consuming and, I was left worried that perhaps I hadn’t done it correctly, and would end up poisoning my family.

HotLogic Mini – Your New Desktop Oven

by Julie


Yes, we all know there are quite a few advantages to bringing your own lunch to work. Not only is it much more economical and time saving, it’s likely to be a much healthier option than you’ll get at your local fast food joint. I don’t usually mind brown bagging a lunch, but sometimes I enjoy a nice hot meal and unfortunately the communal microwave oven isn’t always the most appealing (or sanitary) option.

This Bubble gum Kit will provide a treat for your mind and your mouth

by Caitlyn

Bubble Gum DIY Kit
Life is all about trying new things. From the day we’re born, we start learning, experimenting, and attempting to do and experience more. Some days we become better people, and others we learn what not to do in the future. While the things we try at a young age are relatively simple (learning how to put on pants and bringing food from the plate to your mouth using a utensil), we make the tasks more and more complicated as we progress through different stages of life. Thankfully, not everything we learn has to be academic knowledge though.
