The Cutest Utensils Ever!


I got a gift in the mail from my Aunt Linda yesterday. Can you tell what each item is?

The chick is a potato masher, the monkey is a peeler, the octopus is a whisk, and the mouse is a cheese grater. I can’t wait to use them!

Stay tuned for tomorrow when I draw the winner of my latest contest. (It’s not too late to enter if you haven’t already. Just leave a comment on this post.) I can’t promise the prize will be as cute as these utensils, but I can promise you’ll like it!


Please Don’t Eat The Body Scrub!

Hi! I am SO SORRY that I have not been writing over the last couple of days, but I was on a small vacation. To express my remorse for leaving you all hanging, we are going to change it up today! No–we are not doing some fancy recipe! We’re not even doing food! Today’s post is about a wonderful body scrub that smells just like food!

It’s Naki Nagi! I have met the wonderful person who makes this scrub–totally by hand with all-natural ingredients!! I tried the pear scrub–it smelled like I was standing in the middle of a pear orchard!! Plus, it made my skin feel so fresh, smooth, and clean!

It’s made with sugar, grapeseed oil and other amazing ingredients, so it’s good for your skin too.

Why not get some by visiting the Naki Nagi Web Site at  I know you’ll love it as much as I do!! You’ll smell good enough to eat. (And pear is only one of the awesome scents available!)

(By the way–you all know how much I love cats. Rachel, the great entrepreneur who makes Naki Nagi, has two of them. I don’t think they use the scrub, but they are still the cutest cats ever! That’s not one of them below–they’re even cuter than that, believe it or not.)

Have You Heard of Getting “BOO’ed”?

Now that you’ve made so many goodies, how about passing some along to a friend or two? Wrap up some treats in a festive bag and maybe include a small bottle of cider or a little gift. Leave it on a friend’s porch so they find it when they come outside. Tuck in a poem like the one below, encouraging them to pass on the Halloween cheer to others!


You’ve Been BOO’ed

 The air is cool, the season fall.

Soon Halloween will come to all.

Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore.

Tricky witches at your door.

The spooks are after things to do.

In fact a spook brought this  to you!

The excitement comes when friends in a crew,

copy this note and make it two.

We’ll all have smiles upon our faces.

No one will know who “BOO”ed whose places!

So join the fun, the season’s here.

Just spread these “BOOs” and Halloween cheer!
