So I bought it and my goal this season is to make a different cheesecake recipe, along with a side dish, for the cocktail parties and probably for my book club, too.Attachment 30279
Yea! This is going on my wish list for my b’day (it’s coming up soon, July 18th). Where did you find this?

GG, that's really cool, and as you say it would make really nice and fun little goodies for your parties and book club get-togethers. The possibilities are endless!

No new 'kitchen candy' here lately - although Tyler and I have been going through cherries like crazy, and I'd love to have a cherry pitter. I did a search and OXO has one that I think would work just fine.

Thanks, Cheryl! I can see mini tarts, mini quiches, mini muffins... Lots of good stuff...

No, it's all metal. There is a little hole in the bottom of each cup and it came with a little metal disc that just fits inside. So once it's baked, you run a plastic knife around the edge to loosen the contents and push it out. Take a closer look at the picture.

The mail carrier played Santa today and dropped off my order of spices from The Spice House. I wasn't ordering much, so I wasn't going to get free shipping from either The Spice House or Penzeys; I checked the prices on both websites for what I was buying. I was surprised at the difference in prices. It took a bit of number juggling since one place may have offered a 2.8 ounce bag, while the other sold the same herb/spice in 4 ounce bags, but if my math is OK enough, it looks like the prices at The Spice House are low enough compared to Penzeys that my shipping was "free-ish". Since the quality of product is equal, it was no contest in where I shopped.

Had I bothered to scroll down the page after the home page loaded, I would have found out I could have had free shipping (a $7.91 deal). *sigh* Spice House has a special offer right now: if you pick a spice gift for the crew of the USS Harry S. Truman, an aircraft carrier deployed in the Adriatic Sea, they will mail your order of spices to you for free! The least expensive gift box is $15, but if all you need is one or two little spice selections and you want to be nice to the Navy, it might be something you would be interested in.

Some of you know that when I moved to Missouri from Cali, I didn't bring small appliances from my kitchen.. Jeannie did save and ship our Ninja and I'm glad she did as, it serves more than one purpose..


One item I disposed of was my vac sealer. I'd used one for 20some years but found myself not using it as often as before..


Well, I soon found that I do need vac sealing now and then.. I wanted to seal some things but could not justify purchasing a standard sized one..


Checking kitchen items online, I came across a Food Saver Hand Held Sealer..


https://www.amazon.com/FoodSaver-FSF...70_&dpSrc=srch


Ive used it a half doz times, this past month and really like it.. Inexpensive, compact and seems to vacuum very well..

Looks good JC. don't know why I didn't check more carefully on line while shopping for a vacuum sealer. I usually do.

Got the regular size sealer and I'm basically happy with it but think what you have probably would have been better for my needs.

Two complaints with the full size - is the huge use of excess & expensive plastic it takes to seal tight. A lesser complaint is the counter space it takes up in a limited counter spaced kitchen. Finally found a shelf for it but only with lots of shuffling.
