    Homemade Ice Cream: A Great Alternative To Store-Bought.

    Have you ever looked at the ingredients in your favorite store-bought ice cream? Unfortunately, many store-bought brands contain unwanted ingredients like corn syrup, artificial flavors, emulsifiers, and preservatives.

    But when you make homemade ice cream, you're in control. You decide what ingredients go in and what ends up in your bowl or cone, empowering you to make healthier food choices that you can feel confident about.

    It's time to make room in your freezer for healthier homemade frozen desserts!

  • Make some homemade bread this weekend. (You can thank us, and Le Creuset later.)
    January 31, 2023 Frankie F.

    Make some homemade bread this weekend. (You can thank us, and Le Creuset later.)

    With the sudden popularity of homemade Dutch oven bread baking, Le Creuset answered with their new Bread Oven. They kept their legendary enameled cast iron for superior heat distribution and created a shape uniquely designed to produce bakery-quality results. A deep domed lid traps and circulates steam for the perfect rise and ultimate flavor, while the low-profile base promotes even browning and bakes a golden, crispy crust marked with our hallmark three rings.

    With an easy-to-clean matte black interior enamel and ergonomic knobs and handles, the Le Creuset Bread Oven makes it effortless to bake like the experts right from home.

    January 23, 2023 Frankie F.

    Meet the Pizzaiolo from Breville, Brick Oven Performance for a Fraction of the Cost.

    The magic of the Pizzaiolo comes from the intense heat it produces, and its ability to replicate the three distinct types of heat generated in a traditional brick oven — conductive, radiant and convective.

    The Breville Smart Oven Pizzaiolo is the first consumer countertop oven to hit 750˚F and its Element iQ system replicates the ideal baking environment for authentic Neapolitan, New York style, Pan, Thin & Crispy, as well as Frozen pizzas. And at only 18" wide x 18" deep and 10" high the Pizzaiolo can fit on the countertop in most kitchens,  

    Keep pizza dough and some staples on hand and homemade pizza is always a dinner or snack choice!
