Simply Recipes is Another Awesome Website Full of Yummy Food!

blog-med. potato saladIn the summer, I really like to try to cook more. I feel like I have more time to do so, and the availability of food increases as more comes into season.

Since I don’t remember the last time that I opened a cookbook to look for a recipe, I almost always look online. There are SO many websites and blogs full of great recipes (not that they can’t be found in a good old fashioned cookbook) that the things you can find are endless!

One of my favorite websites to visit for recipes lately is called Simply Recipes. They tend to post more light and healthy meal options which is great for summer and somebody that is watching their waistline!


The Twist Whisk is a Fantastic Product



The whisk is my go-to kitchen tool to use and it sure gets used alot! I use my whisks to beat eggs for scrambling or in a recipe, stir cake batter or muffin batter to break up the clumps, mix together marinade for different meats so that the seasonings and ingredients are evenly distributed. There really are endless uses for a whisk. What do you use yours for?

I found this fantastic product and ordered it right away. This is a Twist Whisk that will lay flat for both washing and storage. This will save me SO much time when I’m doing dishes, because the regular whisks take forever to wash. This is made of silicone so it’s dishwasher safe as well. It will also save me tons of storage space, because as you know, regular whisks are a bit of a pain to store due to their unusual shape.

No More Dealing With Water Boiling Over!

How many times have you had something cooking on the stove and it boiled over? Maybe I should re-phrase: How many times IN THE PAST WEEK have you been cooking something on the stove and it boiled over? I had to rephrase because if you’re anything like me, this happens to you all the time!

I really thought I hit the jackpot when I saw on Pinterest that you can put a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water to prevent it from boiling over. It may just be me, but this didn’t work at all! I was ready to try something new.

I was super excited to find this spill stopper lid. It fits on top of a pot of boiling water and prevents any kind of boiling over whatsoever. Finally, there’s hope for me!

Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It’s tomorrow already. I can’t believe how fast the holiday season is approaching.  If you’re looking for any last minute recipes for the big meal, check out AllRecipes. I found the recipe for the cornucopia pictured above that I will be preparing tomorrow for our family Thanksgiving. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, bloggers!



As we march forward in technology, nothing is left untouched. That’s a good thing. This stove is full of the latest features. It’s cooking surface is uniform, so there’s no coils sticking up. The boilers are electric which saves on the gas bill. Plus, there’s a steam element to make cleaning the actual oven easier.
