The (Candle) Light Side Of The Force

Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick

Even Jedi Masters need to sit down and have a nice meal every once in a while. Dining in the glow of a light saber sometimes does the trick, but if it accidentally gets knocked over, sparks will fly. Luckily for all, there is the Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick. It won’t provide the same awesome illumination as would a real light saber, but then again, it won’t cut the table in half if it falls over.

March Of The Gingerdead Men

Fred and Friends Gingerdead Men Cookie Cutter/Stamps

Untold numbers of gingerbread men sacrifice themselves starting around this time of year. All they ask is for a little recognition. So, please people, if you are going to be making gingerbread cookies, do so with these Fred and Friends Gingerdead Men Cookie Cutter/Stamps. The cookie cutters impress upon the gingerbread the proper and anatomically-correct position of the underlying skeletal structure, meaning that as they get happily chomped upon, they won’t be forgotten for the brave little soldiers that they are. Also, their tiny little bones are safe to eat and do not require use of a fillet knife.

Zoinks! It’s Monday!

Scooby Doo Zoinks! It's Morning Coffee Mug by ICUP

This Scooby Doo Zoinks! It’s Morning Coffee Mug by ICUP certainly got the sentiment correct regarding mornings. Considering that it is Monday on top of it, better make it a double shot. Can’t even blame those meddling kids for the start of the week. Jinkies!

Mini Waffles Abound!

Sunbeam CKSBWFMW3 Mini Waffle Maker

Some foods need to be made in batches. Waffles and pancakes fall into this category. And this goes double (or quadruple) when mini waffles are concerned. The Sunbeam CKSBWFMW3 Mini Waffle Maker is a specialty appliance that produces eight mini waffles per batch. While specialty appliances tend to take up more room than they are worth, waffle makers are worth a look, considering that waffles aren’t exactly easy to make in the oven. (And no, Eggo’s don’t count.) The mini waffle maker, not surprisingly, has a mini price to match–and you don’t even have to buy a whole batch to get the deal.
