  • Vacu Vin

    Vacu-vin

    Vacu Vin is a set of rubber stoppers and a mini pump that seals an open bottle of wine and then lets you pump most of the air out. We use ours constantly. Just pop the bottle in your fridge, and it’ll keep for three or four days. Perfect for those who like to have a glass of wine with dinner, but hate to waste a whole bottle. The only drawback is that it elimiates your excuse for drinking the entire bottle.

  • Braun WK200 Electric Water Kettle

    Braun-wk200-electric-water-kettle

    For people who could use a nice, soothing cup of tea, right bloody now. First, consider herbal. Then pick up a Braun Electric Water Kettle. The water comes to a boil in about a minute, and the carafe has no cord attached so it feels like a regular kettle. It turns off automatically when you remove it from the base, so you never have to worry about waking up to a melted mass of plastic. Also, unlike most electric kettles, it’s not ugly. Pick one up and celebrate with an instant-soup dinner party. Thanks Sara!

  • June Taylor Jams

    June-taylor-jams

    Heather can’t stop raving about June Taylor Jams. She mentions them whenever we see each other, and she sent me this note: “June Taylor has a booth on Saturday morning down at the farmers market where you can taste them all… Heaven in a spoon. I have three jars at home that you’re welcome to sample: Apricot, Pluot and Lavender and Rhubarb. All so good you might want to skip the toast and butter.” She’s right. So good, they make your tastebuds hurt.

  • Adjustable Measuring Spoons

    Adjustable-measuring-spoons

    I love to bake, but I do tend to use every bowl, spoon and measuring device in the kitchen. These adjustable measuring spoons come highly recommended by Maggi, a loyal reader. Since they’d cut my cleanup time in half, I’m willing to give them a go. It’s a three-piece set with adjustable teaspoon, tablespoon, and 1/2 cup scoop. Now make me some cookies.

  • Xocolatl Hot Chocolate

    Xocolatl-hot-chocolate

    Delicious. Xocolatl (pronounced Choco-la’tl) emphasizes the “hot” part of hot chocolate. It’s based on a traditional Aztec drink that combines chocolate with a whomp of chilies and a little cinnamon. If you need a gallon of water to get through a tamale, don’t try this at home. But if you can appreciate a dessert with some kick, this cocoa is the spice of life.
