My mom used to make popcorn in one of these on movie night. That was before microwave popcorn was en vogue. It makes the best treat. There are no unpopped kernels, it melts real butter, and uses hot air instead of oil. Though it may take up a bit of cabinet space, the cost savings and better flavor are worth it.
Over the course of my fitness/health journey, I’ve learned that tracking measurable metrics makes it easier to achieve my fitness goals. This Fitbit is a great tool for measuring a variety of things; calories burned, quality and quantity of sleep, and steps taken. Nerdy? Yes, but nerdy-chic can be sexy too.
When I was growing up, my mom always had me use measuring cups for baking. While that works, the more efficient way is to use a scale. Digital scales are generally more acurate, plus they come in handy for other things, like if you are doing the Zone Diet.
My granny taught me to so as a little girl and got me a cool Borother sewing machine when I got older. I love it. I really need to start sewing more. My mom used to make her own dresses, I bet I can do some of that.
Freshly ground spices are one of the best ways to take your meal up a notch. The amateur next door can use spices out of a bottle, I prefer grinding mine in this mortar and pestle. It’s how my Grandma did it.
Here is the 2nd tool for my latest passion, Fancy, High-Quality, Single Serving Coffee. You put this little ceramic dripper on top of you mug. Then put a filter and coffee in it, finally pouring your hot water slowly through. It will be the best coffee you’ve ever had.
I am a slow cooking fanatic. When I was growing up my mom used her Crock-Pot like crazy. She’d put the ingredients in before she left for work and dinner would be ready when we got home from whatever activity we had that night. I use mine all of the time for my Paleo Diet recipes.
I got an Amazon Fire for Christmas. I love it so much. I’ve read more books in the last 2 months than I read in the last 2 years.
Far and away the best box grater I’ve ever used. You don’t know what your missing until you’ve tried it.
This is the heart of the Baking Hussy’s arsenal. Powerful and knows how to wear bright colors; this is better than most Hunks.
This hand blender is described as being “perfect for making cocktails and crepes.” I read it as “perfect for Taylor Skim.”
