Versatile Copper Mugs and Dragon fruit Beverage

copper mugs dragon fruit chilled smoothie
A small business based in Vancouver, Canada sells beautiful handcrafted copper mugs that we can use for cocktails, mocktails, and as decorative organizers. These copper mugs are made using traditional methods of hammering by hand to create the unique texture on the exterior. I like the rustic imperfections that add character to these mugs, making each of these copper mugs unique. The brass handles are welded, which leaves it intact on the inside, and keeps it water tight and leak free. We love that the rim is smooth, making it our go to mugs for chilled beverages. We love that it is comfortable to hold and enjoy.

Kitchen Prep Made Easy with OXO

Having kitchen tools that make prep work easy, makes cooking and baking easier. I like using the OXO Grip Chopper regularly to chop a variety of ingredients such as nuts, herbs, onions, garlic, and other vegetables by simply pushing down the black knob that exposes the blades, which chops the ingredients.

Allergy-Friendly Treats from Enjoy Life Foods

enjoy life mini cookies
Snacking on packaged treats can be difficult especially for those who face food allergies; packaged treats mean an in-depth label scan at the grocery store, and snacks prepared by others require a list of ingredients.  If you're in a time crunch, at work, or at school, the vending machine is a bit risky and the availability of safe snacks can be a real dilemma.

Baking Bread using Banneton Proving Basket and Terracotta Bread Form

homemade baked bread
I love using terracotta pots to cook over my gas cooker, as I find it gives the dishes an additional delicious flavour. Other than baking on a clay pizza peel, I haven't baked bread inside a terracotta pan before. I am excited by using the Mason Cash 34cm unglazed Terracotta Bread Form, I can bake bread at home inside a terracotta pan. I found using the terracotta bread form gave the baked bread a delicious flavour, and it smells fabulous.
