Sunny Tortilla Warmer Not So Sunny

Sunny Tortilla Warmer

Why is that sun not smiling? Does it not know that within its folds it contains a dozen delicious tortillas? Perhaps that is the issue with this Sunny Tortilla Warmer. It doesn’t want to share!

Watch out, Mr. Sun! Improve that attitude or suffer the same fate as angry Mickey Mouse. (That being a quick dismissal from Amazon’s smiling, happy store: “Your search “Mickey Mouse comic plate” did not match any products.”)

Don’t Get Your Feet Off The Table

Serve up a side salad — literally

Dark Acacia-Wood Salad Bowl with Stand Set

Salad is an excellent accompaniment to almost any meal. Problem is, big, leafy greens take up a lot of room. After all, salad bowls are big for a reason; they require a large footprint to hold all that greenery. As such, often the salad bowl gets left behind, while the other, less healthy courses get the limelight of the tabletop.

The Dark Acacia-Wood Salad Bowl with Stand Set allows for the salad to stand alone, saving valuable tabletop real estate for other entrées. The 28.5-inch stand compliments the 8-inch by 16-inch bowl, and placed next to the table, the set is an attractive and easy-to-reach option for smaller dining tables. With this salad bowl at your tableside, the roast beef and mashed potatoes are just going to have to learn how to share top billing.
