Cool TOOL!!

I have the best in-laws. EVER. Not only do they think of others 99.5% of the time, they SEE what others need, and then they DO what needs to be done. And even if it's something that doesn't NEED to be done, they just WANT to - and do it anyway...just to make the recipient's life easier. Here's just one little example:

My father-in-law was browsing in Sur La Table (most likely with my mother-in-law, we share a passion for kitchen-y stuff) - and passed by one of THESE:

(cue angels singing)

...a Kuhn Rikon squeezable decorating kit!! He asked me if I already had one, or if it would be something I'd use? Since the closest Sur la Table to me is 78 miles away...I jumped on the web to look it up...

Would I use it? uuuuuh, ya - It's PERFECT!! Interchangeable tips on a squeeze bottle? It's genius. No more dealing with the mess and headache of pastry bags...and the dual chamber bottle? Brilliant!

Then yesterday came a knock on my door...oh what could it be? A package!!


It's made in Switzerland (think Swiss army knives, Swatch, Toblerone, cow bells) - you know it's quality is going to be top notch!! I can't wait to use it - oh the possibilities! :)

So THANK YOU Steve, I am going to "keep on bakin' "!

It makes me wish I baked more just so I could use it. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
