You may remember me talking about Giftry a couple months ago. In case you forgot, here’s a quick recap. Your mom asks for a Christmas list. You send her an email with a bunch of long blue links, sizes, and notes. It’s awful to look at and inevitably gets lost in her inbox. Your mother-in-law asks for the same list, the one you’ve also lost. Insert Giftry. It’s like Pinterest for gift giving/list making. Make lists for yourself, your family, and friends. Collaborate and share, making the gift giving process easier and prettier. It’s a no brainer. Speaking of, Giftry is giving away up to $1000 (!) in gifts of your choice. Entry details below.

I started it on a whim after sharing tips periodically on my Facebook page, and it soon became a weekly staple on this site. It’s made me pay attention to what I do in the kitchen as well as search for easier ways to do things. The less fuss the better, right? And when I was tip-less, many of you contributed your kitchen genius. Thank you.
This little series will continue, but first it’s time to celebrate with a giveaway of some of my favorite products that make working in the kitchen easier and, let’s be honest, prettier. Many, many thanks to the great companies listed below that made this giveaway possible. Read more

Since things are heating up around here, it’s time to do some celebrating with a giveaway. Read more

And my love for scones progressed into biscuits … tarts … and pies. But I’ll never forget my first love. Scones taught me about the art of baking. They taught me to work with my hands. And they taught me to appreciate the process just as much as the outcome. Read more
