I must confess at the beginning of this post that this was actually scheduled for November 2011. 2011 people! Last year! Somehow it never was posted according to my scheduler technical thingamabobber on my computer. Sooo, not one to waste a post, here it is.  Enjoy!

Have I ever mentioned my love of food? This time of year my little heart just becomes giddy at the thought of all the yummy things I will be baking and cooking in just a few days! I love to cook, just hate to clean, and no one seems to ever volunteer that job, do they?

kingarthurflour.com not only has some great cooking products, but even some great recipes, baking tips, and their own line of flour. If you are looking for some gluten free products this would be a great site for that.  They have a recipe for an “all-butter pie crust”. Try not to look at stupid as me – it really isn’t all butter! But doesn’t that sound good?

Adjustable silicone pie crust shield for $9.95

Lots of cheesecake recipes, including the one for the picture above, carmel pecan cheesecake. This would be a great dish to make AND BRING OVER TO MY HOUSE.

Bake and give paper bakers – set of 12 for $8.95. Great for all those sweet breads you make to give as gifts, and with these you don’t have to worry about half of the loaf sticking to your own pan, which you are then forced to eat yourself because you cannot give something messed up to a teacher or neighbor or whomever it was intended originally! It’s a vicious cycle, people!

kingarthurflour.com also has lots of essentials for decorating cookies and cupcakes, along with all other necessary kitchen gadgets to use yourself or give as a gift to that baker in your family.

Check out kingarthurflour.com. Try to do so after you eat, not before. I’m off to the kitchen to bake a little somethin’ somethin’.
