I'm already thinking about all the cookies I want to bake this spring, as well as looking for cookie cutters to make them with. The 3D Bunny Cookie Cutter particularly caught my eye because the result of your baking is a cookie that can sit up on its own. With just a little royal icing to "glue" the four pieces of cookie together, your bunnies can be centerpieces, decorations, and more--as well as remain a tasty treat. The 3D Bunny Cookie Cutter is actually a set of four heavy-gauge stainless steel cookie cutters that cut the pieces … Read more
Cutter Joiner provides a simple way to dice or merge a song file for easier consumption. We were surprised to discover how easy both processes were and how useful this could be for music fans.
The program's interface was surprisingly simple, considering the technical work required. While we did need to visit the Help file's instructions, all the visual aids quickly helped us feel comfortable.

Even though I'm an adult, I'm known to pull out the bucket of Legos and play fairly often. They're great for sparking the imagination--and that's now true in the kitchen, as well.
The Rolling Cookie Cutter from Lego allows you to make cookies in the shape of Lego bricks. The roller cuts cookies into 2x2 squares, one of the standard sizes for Lego pieces, with each cookie measuring about 1 inch by 1 inch. The Rolling Cookie Cutter uses plastic for the actual cookie cutter, mounted on a stainless steel handle with a silicone grip.

About two years ago, a more carefree version of myself started buying fresh cut fruit at the grocery store. Sure, it was more expensive, but with four kids and a busy work schedule, who has time to slice pineapple?
Fast forward to the current financial state of my own personal union, and suddenly I find myself with more time than money. So I'm back to slicing my own fruit. And yet, still, who the heck wants to slice up a pineapple?
Ah, the holidays. Company descends upon the house, forcing you to live in a state of cleanliness not normally seen; forcing you to play the gracious hostess, with trays of home-baked goodies and endlessly flowing libations; forcing you to welcome yet another long-lost relative you really don't care about.

I've never understood why there's such a big price difference between potatoes and those bags of frozen french fries in the freezer aisle. Frozen fries are the same thing as plain potatoes--they've just been sliced and frozen. But why can you get 10 pounds of potatoes for about the same price as one pound of french fries? Rather than worry too much about it, I've started making my own french fries at home. All you need is a vegetable cutter to help crank out the cut potatoes and a pan full of hot oil.
