Your Brownies... Pre-Cut


There is nothing worse than baking anything, only to have it fall apart when you try to cut it. I'm liking this idea a lot. Pour in the batter and the pan takes care of the rest.

'Witch-eva': Spooky Tween Girl Halloween Gift Basket ~


What a great idea!! Someone else does all the work (putting together the basket) and you get all the credit!

Krinkles Halloween Cake Stand & Cupcake Holders


Now the cake stand that I have sitting on the counter can't hold a candle to this one!! This is just so cute and just begging someone to bake something to feature on it. Not that they would last very long... at least in our house.

Available at Neiman Marcus $85.00

Halloween Assorted Caramels


They look homemade don't you think?? But these won't be the candy I would be handing out on Halloween night. This is my stash!!

Available at Williams Sonoma

Set of Two Silver Spreaders


Another item that would be perfect for the holiday table. They look OLD! Imagine the stories you could spin about their origin!!

Available at Etsy

HALLOWEEN SALT/PEPPER SET - HALLOWEEN WATERBALL SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS


Time to take the old "normal" salt and pepper shakers off the table and put on something like this. Just too cool!

Monday

Caramel Apple Cookies from Betty Crocker

Now these look awfully good and would take a whole lot less time to bake. I'm seriously thinking of treating myself.

Thursday

Salt and Pepper Shakers for Halloween


I would never have believed that these were salt and pepper shakers if I hadn't seen then. Now would this make for a great Halloween dinner table to what??

Wednesday

Knives that can Actually Cut

Cuisinart 21-piece Triple Rivet Cutlery Block Set with bonus Cutting Board, Natural Wood Block

You wouldn't believe this... okay maybe you would, but I'm still using knives that I got as a wedding present. Knives are simply not the type of thing you buy for yourself. One of these days the kids just might decide that this would make a great gift for me!

Sunday

I Guess You Have to be Able to Cook!

I feel a recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation.

Madam Benoit

Definitely not be because when I have a recipe in front of me, I follow it to the letter... and most of the time it still doesn't turn out.

Saturday

The Nutty Cookie Football Cookie Basket

It`s not a cookie jar, but I think that it`s a pretty cool way of serving cookies to a bunch of guys. You know that when it comes to cookies, guys just never grow up. You knew that didn`t you!!

Thursday

Apple Crisp Recipe & Photo - Joyofbaking.com

I can't believe that I produced two kids and neither one of them like Apple Crisp. Even if you THINK that you don't like it, at least take a look at the photo. If you can turn that down, you are a better person than me. I'm salivating!!

Desiderius Erasmus Talks About Food

When I get a little money, I buy books. And if there is any left over, I buy food. ~Desiderius Erasmus


Oh, that is hitting way to close to home!

Simple/Easy Menus... Where I Get My Best Ideas!!

 Those paper menus that serve as place mats... tuck one into your handbag and when you get home check to see how many meals that you could...
