Delights From Bonne Maman

A gift sampler of decadent French preserves

Bonne Maman is the queen of artisan preserves and jellies. All are made from 100% all-natural ingredients and while these aren’t exactly healthy smears they’re a delectable addition to your Sunday brunch spread…we know we’re not the only ones hibernating indoors with our families in this cold weather!

Made in France, the all-natural products are free of artificial coloring, high fructose corn syrup and preservatives making them just as good on their own as an ingredient for a recipe. And, speaking of recipes, their website is a goldmine for ideas. Have you ever thought of grilling with preserves? Yum! With so many flavors to choose from we highly recommend snapping up a gift sampler as a gift to [...]

Casabella Rolling Pin Spacer Bands

Bake effectively

Our kids love to help us in the kitchen and while we love their enthusiasm, we’re not going to lie, sometimes it’s more work to have them “helping” us than it is actual help. The importance of teaching kids how to take care of themselves however - whether it be nutrition, wellness, hygiene or something else - can’t be understated so we always welcome their enthusiasm when it presents itself. Our little ones in particularly always get excited when we have them help us using nifty little gadgets and a new discovery are Casabella Rolling Pin Spacer Bands.

Cheap, effective, and ingenious all in one, the brand sells a pack of 8 rolling pin spacer bands to use when rolling out any type of dough. We simply have our munchkins slip on one brightly colored spacer onto each side of our rolling pin and then they can roll our our dough to the exact thickness we [...]

Candy Club

Shhh…don’t tell our dentist

Monthly boxes aren’t going anywhere. In fact more and more exciting brands are launching new ones and most don’t come with mandatory commitments. One of the newest ones is Candy Club, which offers a monthly subscription service designed especially for candy lovers….and who isn’t one? Basically it brings the candy store to our door and before you think well, it’s not exactly like I have trouble doing that on my own, Candy Club packages are beautiful and ready-to-gift. Meaning that all of the sweets come packaged in containers that you could easily display on your office desk, in your living area when hosting, or bring with you when invited over at friends and family. Each shipment is curated by the company’s in-house sweet-toothed aficionados, offering a consistently rotating variety of delicious, hard-to-find candies (think Haribo Gummi Techno Bears and Sour Power Wild Cherry Belts, to name a couple), along with favorites like Jelly Beans.

You can go month-to-month or, to save money, opt for a six month membership. Either way you’ll be saving off of typical brick and mortar candy store prices and your first order gets $10 shaved off the price if you sign up for their newsletter.

Bring on [...]
