Monica's Must-Haves,
all under $10!
This small, simple sharpener does a great job on your knives at a fraction of the cost of those big, fancy models. It is recommended by Cooks Illustrated as a BEST BUY. I love the compact size, too--it easily fits in a drawer.
This is like having a second pair of hands when you're filling plastic bags. I have 2 of them for holding open bags I'm preparing for the freezer.
This magically keeps butter fresh for up to 30 days without refrigeration. That means you can always have soft, spreadable butter on hand. I've used this for years.
Use this handy friend for making tea or coffee. It rests on the rim of a mug or jar for making small or big batches.
Attach this to the side of a pot to hold a spoon or spatula. No more messes on the stove top! I use this clever gizmo every day.
This is made from special fired clay and keeps brown sugar moist for 3 months. It can also be used to keep salt and spices dry. Awesome little guy!
This 1/4 cup measuring cup is angled with easy-to-read markings that can be read from above. I find the tablespoon markings to be particularly useful.
This is such a simple gadget to use. Insert garlic cloves and roll it back and forth with your palm. The garlic peels falls right off. So easy!
This set of 3 flexible, silicone funnels makes filling bottles and containers mess-free. I love that they are collapsible to easily fit in a draw.
This collapsible silicone cover allows steam to safely escape while microwaving. Food cooks faster without splatters to clean up. Very handy.
No more burnt pie crust edges! I love this inexpensive gadget. Now all of my pie crusts get eaten instead of left on the plate.
Also available: 10-inch pie crust shield

The Yummy Life is 3 years old this month. It's been a wild ride, that's for sure! Thanks to all of you, my Yummy readers, this blog has grown beyond my wildest dreams. I'm so very grateful to you for stopping by, commenting, & sharing my recipes with your friends. That's the formula for success in the blogging world, and I literally couldn't have done it without you!

Coincidentally, Pinterest went live in 2010, too--just a few months before The Yummy Life began.  I soon began creating Pinterest boards full of ideas I love from all over the blogosphere. Apparently, I wasn't the only one who got hooked. Pinterest now has over 70 million users. Wow. That's amazing growth in just 3 years.

I've loved watching my recipes from The Yummy Life show up on Pinterest boards. It's such a fun way to connect and share with others who have common interests from around the globe. As Pinterest has grown, so has the number of people who follow my Pinterest boards. If you haven't joined Pinterest or started following my boards, you are hereby invited to join me and the rest of my Yummy friends there! To get started, simply click on this button:
