I found Kaufmann Mercantile, an online store that celebrates the finer details of craftsmanship and well designed goods for the everyday living. I especially love the home, kitchen and grocery selections that are filled with old school finds with an modern update that make me want to use everything because it is so cool! The hand forged fry pans are just beautiful I can only dream of the dishes that would make in them! I would hang mine on my wall because I love to look at it too! The Black Walnut cutting board and the Reclaimed Oak Sandwich board are on my wish list too!
such a wonderful lady that really knows all about
finding the best chocolate from around the world.
is something we can all benefit from and enjoy!
I think Chocolate is the perfect gift for every occasion so my
favorites that I highly recommend -
What is the Smart Slice Mandoline?
It is an all-in-one mandoline tool that allows you to
julienne, slice, grate and shred your vegetables, fruit and cheese.
It is so easy to use and clean and I feel safer using it!
I love it and make excuses to find ways to use in for every meal.
I originally hoped that all of my selections would be MADE IN THE USA. Most of them are but the overall message that is a must with all of my choices is that they are individuals, entrepreneurs, small local companies that are trying to make a difference in this world by offering the best quality products that they find or create. I am so thrilled that I found them and excited to share this information with you.
Happiest of Holiday Shopping Season to you! Thank you for reading along and supporting our small, local businesses!
My disclosure statement for the products that I received. If I did not mention them here than I paid for the above items. I received the Sorghum, Ginger and Lemon Syrups from Kaufaman Mercantile as a gift. I also received The Taste of Ayurveda as a gift from the publisher. I also received a sample of Luce's GF Artisan Bread Mixes. In no way did these gifts influence my selections, nor was I compensated. I chose these gifts for my list.

Hey you uneven slicers ... I've got my eyes on YOU!
You know who you are!
Great way to make a lighter Dressing for Thanksgiving.
I actually make a variation of this side dish all year.
It stores well and is even better when you make it a day ahead because it has time to meld!
This can also be made with Quinoa in place of the cousin - Kañiwa!
Kañiwa, from Peru, is smaller and even easier to digest.
Ok, I know if you are a traditionalist then check out my recipe -
