How sweet are these mini Dutch ovens?  They would be perfect for individual servings of mac n' cheese, pot pie or fruit crisps. Available in 5 colors.

Latte Bowls  Set of 6 Anthropologie $30
Love the colors of these bowls.  They make me happy every time I open the cupboard to reach for a bowl.  Oatmeal tastes better in one of these...really!!

Or how about a cookbook?  Check out the NY Times best of 2011 by clicking here.

These are the Epicurious favorites of 2011.


  1. Those latte bowls are in my kitchen arsenal and I love them :) That candle sounds pretty divine - I prefer something with a little citrus in it always smells fresh to me

  2. Those spoons are ridiculously cool - can you order them online?
