The beautiful golden brown handle provides a secure ergonomic grip with an unsurpassed balance.

If you enjoy good old Southern cuisine with an inventive twist, you’ll love this book. Chef Donald Link encourages what he calls a “new style of Southern cooking,” which has influences outside of the traditional.

It’s a great read and it inspired us to try some of his creative recipes! ($35.00)

We’ve got the regular-shaped rainbow whisk, too- both are just $19.99.
With the Auto Safety LidLifter, it’s now possible to open a can and never, ever touch the lid. All you do is place the opener on the can and turn the comfortable knob. The tool automatically locks in place and cuts from the side leaving a rim that’s smooth, not sharp or jagged. The tiny, strong jaws on the side of the opener remove the lid. . Safe, ergonomic and just plain cool, for $19.99, in either red or black.
Take a good look. No, you’re not imagining things- these pans are WHITE. Inside, outside… all but the handles. Handles high heat on the stovetop and so durable that you wouldn’t believe they’re non-stick!

Her recipes, which are broken down into simple steps, teach readers how to cook, highlighting key tools and basic techniques everyone should know. And yet her flavors are anything but basic; Kelsey gives everyone the confidence to start with the 2.0 version of a recipe instead of the boring standards. For example, she makes her house pilaf with quinoa instead of rice, and her addictive fruit salad is a savory first course instead of a lackluster dessert.
This is an excellent handbook for newlyweds, recent college graduates, and those discovering their kitchens for the first time. ($19.99)
