Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Half-Baked Edition

One thing’s for sure: if you bake, the holidays are the best excuse in the world to do it. Of course you need good equipment to make the best cookies, cakes, pies, and breads. Here are a couple of my budget-friendly picks to make your life in the kitchen happier and more successful.

Rachel Ray Cookie Sheets Every year I swear I’m going to get new cookie sheets. I don’t have enough and I don’t have any that are nonstick. This year, I may just go ahead and do it with the deal I found on this Rachael Ray 2-pc. Nonstick Oven Lovin’ Cookie Lovin’ Set at Cooking.com.

You get two 17″ x 11″ nonstick cookie sheets with large and bright orange silicone handles for  easy handling. They’re dishwasher safe and able to withstand heat up to 500f. What’s more, with every purchase, a donation is made to Rachel’s Yum-o charity dedicated to teaching kids and their families about healthy relationships with food, as well as feeding hungry children.

All that and a sale? Sign me up! Because right now at Cooking.com, you can save about a quarter of the price on these great cookie sheets. Regularly priced at  39.95, you can get them right now for just 29.99! Now that’s a great way to feel good about making those holiday treats!

One day some years ago, I found a book at a garage sale. It looked great and it was a dollar and I picked it up on a whim. The book was called The Cake Bible, and little did I know that I had just discovered my ultimate baking inspiration, Rose Levy Beranbaum.

Rose’s Heavenly Cakes Well now she’s come out with another gorgeous, inspirational, and utterly practical baking book, Rose’s Heavenly Cakes. Friends, this one is on my personal list for Santa, and if he doesn’t come through, I’ll get it for myself after the holidays. I would never miss a book this woman writes on baking.

Just because I’m eager, though, doesn’t mean I’m going to ignore a great deal. If you or someone you love needs this book, head on over to Amazon.com where you can get it for 46% off!  The regular price is $39.95 (which is a steal for what you find between these covers), but Amazon is selling it for just $21.57 right now. Oh, and it even qualifies for Super Saver Shipping. See site for details.

Of course, once you’ve finished your baking you’ll need something to serve your delicious creations on. How can you do better than Lenox china? By getting Lenox china on sale, of course!

Lenox Butler’s Pantry Cake Plate Put your cake – or even an artful pile of cookies or scones – on this subtly elegant cake plate and watch your guests grab them like they’re going out of style! And nobody will ever guess how little you paid for this pretty. The suggested retail price is $72.00, but you can get it for just $49.95 if you go to the official Lenox site.
