Gifts for the kitchen are some of my favorite gifts to receive.  Whether it’s appliances, gizmos, gadgets, new foods, cookbooks – it doesn’t matter.  If it’s related to cooking, I’m excited.

Here are a few of my favorite foodie gifts.

Stainless Steel Trivet Scale

Foodie Gifts: Brushed Stainless Steel Trivet Scale from Salter

I love kitchen scales but sometimes have a challenge with finding the space to store them.  You don’t have to worry about that, though, with this Brushed Stainless Steel Trivet Scale from Salter.  Not only does it only take up a tiny bit of space but it can also be used as a serving trivet for your table.  The front scale display slides into the base keeping it clean, protected, and out-of-the-way.

A few months ago my Gram passed away.  I haven’t really mentioned it much – if at all – but those who are regular readers probably noticed that there were a few long stretches of little to no posting.

Christmas was always a huge holiday at my grandparents’ house, and I can vividly remember just how she had it decorated every year.  After she passed, a few of those pieces came to me.  I don’t have quite the same setup she did and so I’ve been trying to figure out where to display them.

For whatever reason, our master bedroom has always been the most neglected room in our house.  The walls are still bare aside from paint, and the only furniture has been our bed and a small table with a white noise machine and a humidifier.

Exciting, I know.

We’ve said for years “we really should get a dresser” or “some drawers would be nice”.  We even checked out a few furniture stores.  So much of what we looked at just didn’t seem to be of good value, didn’t fit our style, or wasn’t right for the space.

Sauder Website - Made in the USA Furniture

When I was offered the opportunity to peruse the Sauder website and select a piece of furniture, I was cautiously optimistic.  I had heard great things about the company and their quality in the past, so I was just hoping to find something that fit our style and the space. Continue reading »

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever had anyone give a little sniff and ask you, “What’s that smell?”. And you have no idea, because you can’t smell it? If you’ve found yourself in this situation, you may be suffering from noseblindness!

Cure Noseblindness with Febreze! #Noseblind #DDDivas

What, exactly, is noseblindness? Well, over time, we all become accustom to the odors around us. Odors from various activities – like baking, for example – can stay airborne or cling to soft surfaces. When the odors stick around, they start to blend in, leaving you “nasally challenged” to your own environment. Continue reading »
