Squeak and Jumbo - the problem solving pair by Jessica Shrum

This book is AMAZING for helping children work through problems to find a logical solution.  We introduced this to my preschooler and she loved it!  The concept is basic - Big problem?  That's an Elephant problem! Small problem..?  Mouse problem.  My daughter often puts me in check and says "Mom, that's just a mouse problem".  Great read for growing minds! Get it HERE!


Bak-Klene ZT Nonstick Baking Spray

Baking was where I developed a love for being in the kitchen.  When creating the perfect chocolate chip cookie to the fluffiest cornbread, having a solid non-stick bake spray is a necessity!  Bak-Klene ZT Nonstick Baking Spray is the perfect match for both sweet and savory baked goods such as my Greek Yogurt Banana Bread and the best part..? It makes clean up SO EASY!  Some of my favorite baking pans were passed down to me from my mother, so you can imagine how much love they've had.  Bak-Klene ZT will guarantee to keep those old pans from sticking to your goodies.

You can find this essential kitchen tool on It comes in a 3-pack and if you bake as much as I do, you'll need it!  They also make a wonderful gift.

Le Saunier De Camargue, Fleur De Sel Sea Salt

I started using Fleur De Sel in place of Kosher Salt after reading a few of Ina Garten's Cookbooks.  This finishing salt is a healthier alternative to standard table salt and adds more flavor and dimension that Kosher, while using less!  It's texture is more chunky as it's made from salt crystals.  This particular brand, found at Safeway and is harvested from the surfaces of sea water in Camargue France.  Pretty cool!

Bathtub Star Crayon

We no longer refer to taking a bath as 'bath time' in our house.  The Bathtub Star Crayon by ALEX Toys has transformed this nightly ritual into what Preston refers to as 'Color Bath!'

This hexagon-shaped crayon is awesome because it's meant for little hands and the colors are so vibrant compared to other tub crayons.  It washes off the tub and body easily, and it's cheap!  Find it here on!

Pick up your pair of pink Carhartts here at  Want the standard tan? They have a plethora of sizes all the way from 3 months to 4T here!


I purchased my Hunters in 2012 and they have been through so much and still look amazing!  Made from all-natural rubber, hands-down the best gardening/rain boot out there.  Mine are the matt-black, but amazon has them in a TON of colors!  Another reason to love hunters?  They come in wide and slim varieties, as well as mid or short height!  So many options!

I use garlic in almost every savory dish I cook.  When I found these little gadgets at a Sur La Table cooking class, it was a major game-changer for me! Many garlic presses are not only hard to use but impossible to keep clean.  Both of these tools are big time savers when prepping garlic and cleaning up after.  AND I found them at a killer price on Amazon in a joint pack!  (I paid twice this much for each item!)
