Finally . . . finally . . . we’ve had a break in the weather. No longer are our temperatures reaching triple digits, but we’ve been blessed with gorgeous, sunny days with highs in the low 80s. I’ve seen a few people jump the gun a bit and venture out in their furry boots and scarves, but these sweaty fashionistas should perhaps wait until it gets really cold–like 65–to start pulling out their winter wear.
Though it’s not quite time for winter clothes yet,Autumn is indeed just around the corner. In fact, the first day of Fall is only two days away. That means you only have a few days to enjoy the start of the cooler season before you have to get wrapped up in the holiday frenzy. After all, there are only 94 days until Christmas and only 64 until Thanksgiving. It is time to get a jump on your holiday cooking with some of the many As Seen On TV kitchen products available to make your food prep easier and your recipes more delicious.
The first holiday approaching us is Halloween, and though it doesn’t require nearly the kitchen effort of all-out-gorgefests like Thanksgiving, you will need some fun, spooky goodies if there are little ghosts and goblins running around your house. Make show-stopping treats without turning into a witch with Tasty Top Cake Pops. Cake pops, cake truffles, and cake balls are all the rage right now, but they are traditionally very time consuming to make. Tasty Top Cake Pops let you make a lighter, fluffier version quickly and easily. Just pour any batter into the Cake Pops bakeware, and perfectly round cake pops will bake. Insert the sticks and decorate. For Halloween, try orange frosting to make jack-o-lantern cake pops, white frosting to make ghosts or skulls, and green for a witch. Top the witch with a “hat” made of a chocolate cookie and a chocolate kiss candy.
Once your trick-or-treaters have come and gone, it’s time to think about planning your Thanksgiving menu. Integral to almost any American Thanksgiving dinner is a moist, tender, golden turkey. Unfortunately, too many of us suffer through overcooked turkey, or–as I like to call it–”turkey jerky.” Deep fried turkey has become a popular way to prepare the centerpiece of the meal, but traditionally, deep frying a turkey has been a task fraught with peril. Hot oil and open flames, just don’t mix, as we discovered in an earlier post about exploding turkeys.
Of course, As Seen On TV cooking products come to the rescue with the Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer. The Butterball Fryer lets you deep fry a turkey without the hazard, removing the open flame and allowing you to cook indoors. Perfect turkey can be yours with the Butterball Indoor Turkey Fryer, sparing your guests from turkey jerky and sparing you from your mother-in-law’s snide comments about your cooking ability.
What are you waiting for? The countdown to the holidays is well underway!
