Heart #129 goes to...The Pet Travel-Tainer from The Container Store

Heart #129 goes to...The Pet Travel-Tainer from The Container Store!  Here's what I've been looking for for quite some time now.  My furry little best friend comes to work with me, and pretty much any place that he's allowed, so I always want to have extra food for him.  Right now, in the back of my truck, I have a zip lock bag filled with food and a regular boring plastic container.  This is so much more compact and really cute.  The 4 quart container is airtight and the handles pull off to give you two bowls (one quart each),  for food and water.  When you are done, simply snap everything back into place!  This product is PBA free and sells for $14.99.

Heart #128 goes to...The Pampered Chef's 13" Medium Round Stone with Handles

Heart #128 goes to...The Pampered Chef's 13" Medium Round Stone with Handles!  Had to blog about this today for two reasons.  First reason is that I just got mine in the mail today.  The second reason is the pressure from my cousin Marti to blog again.  It's been almost two months since my last post and she just pointed that out to me.  It's also because of her that I bought this really cool baking stone.  She invited me over for dinner last week for some delicious homemade Greek soup, maybe I'll post that recipe one day, and she made crescent rolls.  The rolls came out perfect, thanks to the Pampered Chef stone which "evenly distributes heat and draws moisture away from the surface".
Here are some more features:
Retains heat, so your just-out-of-the-oven foods stay hot longer
No presoaking needed before use
Virtually nonporous, so it doesn't retain oils, odors or flavors
Microwave-, freezer-, and conventional and convection
This stone goes from the oven, straight to your table, with the help of the contoured handles that are molded directly into the stone.  This 13" round sells for $24.00 here.  There is also a large round stone with handles and a rectangular baker.  Browse the Pampered Chef website, they have really cool products and great recipes.
