FooDoodle Pens

I was on Tumblr and I found this post about fun products and one of these products were edible pens. I searched far and wide, but I could not find the exact product ANYWHERE. So, I searched for an alternative.

Have you every wanted to draw a cool design on your food but the fear of ink poisoning stopped you? Well fear no longer because I just found the coolest thing! Its called the FooDoodle Pen (Food DOODLE, get it?) I found this product on Amazon for only $13.97. These are just like real pens except for the fact that you can DRAW ON YOUR FOOD AND NOT DIE WHEN YOU EAT IT! This pack of pastry painting pens comes with 10 colors: Red, Blue, Green, Black, Yellow, Brown, Orange, Purple, Navy Blue, and Pink. They are reusable and work on cookies, crackers, wafers, bagels, bread and MARSHMALLOWS!

These pens would be perfect for the artistic baker in your life or even as a craft idea for kids. There are many different uses for these pens. You could decorate holiday cookies with Santa’s face or Rudolph’s nose. You could put a school or company logo on them for a bake sale.

These pens are better than using frosting to decorate because they are thin and precise. You can draw more intricate designs on your baked goods. They are not as messy as frosting either. The FooDoodle pens also come with stencils so even if you are not the next Picaso you can still create a design that is pleasing to the eye (and the mouth!)

These would be a great addition to any upcoming holiday cooking decorating parties, or a great stocking stuffer idea for the future chef in your life! There are many reasons to buy these pens but I think the most convincing reason is that if you buy them, you have to try them out, which means you HAVE to eat cookies :)

A Magnet to Help With Measuring

I have so many people in my life that love to cook and create some pretty wonderful things in the kitchen. When I see unique and useful kitchen products, I always think of my friends that love to cook. This is a very useful product that I came across when I was looking around online.

This magnet can be placed in a location that is easy to see and use. You don’t have to worry about digging through cookbooks for conversion charts or “google-ing” the conversions like I tend to do. I wish that they would make it easy and just use the same units of measurement for everything. It would save so much time and would prevent a lot of cooking mistakes from happening.

I hope that my friends get a lot of use out of this and that it helps them out. Hopefully they will share some of their delicious recipe creations in return!

A Brownie Pan With ALL Edge Pieces

brownieMy sister is such a great cook and baker. She’s always trying out a ton of new recipes and has so much more patience in the kitchen than I do. I have so much respect for the amazing things she can come up with. It’s also sometimes quite fun to be her “guinea pig” in the kitchen because I get to try some of her amazing creations!

Her birthday is coming up and I plan on getting her a ton of things she can add to her kitchen. She can really increase he supply of things and it won’t cost her anything. I found this awesome brownie pan that is shaped just perfectly so that every brownie is an edge piece. She loves to make brownies, and with this pan, nobody will have to fight over who gets the corner pieces!

 

A Lid and Spoon Rest to Make the Cook’s Life Easier

I have many people on my Christmas list that I have yet to shop for. Where did the month of November go? I feel like it was just Halloween, and now it’s already less than 20 days from Christmas! I have definitely been in the Christmas spirit and our home is decorated and looks great. However, it’s the Christmas present shopping that I am slacking in.

Many of the people on my list love to cook and be in the kitchen. I have a lot of respect for them and am amazed and the wonderful things that they are able to create. I found this lid and spoon rest which will lessen the mess and expand the convenience of life in the kitchen. This is great and with this product, the chef is able to keep from setting the lid or spoon on the counter. This creates such a mess! I’m going to pair this gift with a cookbook full of great recipes and hopefully get invited over to see the final products!

Banana Slicer

Because I am a mom, I am always looking at ways to make my life a little bit easier and make my time stretch just a little bit further. I feel like I’m supposed to be in about ten places at once on some days. Although I get so busy and overwhelmed at times, I feel like being a mom is the best job in the world. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

I found this fantastic gift for myself! When my husband asks me what I would like for my birthday, I will be directing him to this exact blog post. This banana slicer makes cutting up bananas super easy and quick. Everyone in the family loves bananas so I know that this tool will save me so much time! I really hope that I get it because it will get used almost daily! We eat bananas as snacks, on cereal, as a side with lunch or supper, in smoothies, as an ice cream topping and in recipes like banana bread! Yum!
