Guests love our coffee and often ask what brand we use. They're always surprised when we tell them it's Folgers Classic Roast. The reason our coffee is so delicious is not because we have fancy coffee, or because Ellen has special coffee-making skills. It's because of the coffeemaker, which is different from any other. Click on the link to find out why.
The low price may also surprise you. And though you might miss Ellen's delicious breakfasts, you'll still be able to enjoy the Beauport Inn's coffee even when you're not here.
We love Breville products and this convection toaster oven is no exception. And the good news is, you don't have to be a master chef to enjoy it.
Ellen cooks her famous Baked Apple Pancake in this oven. We can't promise yours will turn out like hers, but we'll send you her recipe if you'd like, so long as you promise not to expect her to come to your house to make it for you.
We had several different blenders before we came across this one, and it's our favorite -- powerful, easy to clean, and comes with a whopping 10-year warranty! And from personal experience we can tell you that KitchenAid's customer service is second to none.
This is what Linda uses to make her breakfast drink. Like Ellen, she's happy to share her recipe. Just ask. And if you buy almond milk, you can make it at home. A cup of water, 1/4 cup almonds (or other nuts, like pecans), blend for a minute, and voila! No need to lug containers with unpleasant additives home from the supermarket. Those days are gone.
If you like freshly-made juice, you'll love the Breville Juice Machine. It's easy to use and easy to clean. We've had ours for years and it's built to last.
This machine is not just for oranges. Step out of your comfort zone and discover how good a glass of carrots, apples, and ginger can be. It might not replace your evening martini, but adding something to your repertoire that's nutritious -- and also happens to taste good -- may not be a bad thing.
Why spend a bundle for a Roomba when you can have a robot vacuum cleaner for less than $200? That's what we thought when we saw this nifty machine.
We love how it gets under beds, and are always amazed at what a good job it does. Although it doesn't replace a full-sized vacuum, it's great for maintenance and allows you time to do other things besides clean. For just $179.99, it's a great deal. And with the additional "save $20" coupon they're offering as a discount at checkout, it's an even better deal.
We use our ILife Robot quite often, but when it comes to a full-sized vacuum, we love our Shark. We don't have this model -- ours is an older one -- but we wish we did. The DuoClean comes with a bristle brush to deep clean carpets, and a second soft brushroll to use on hard surface floors.
Shark also has cordless vacuums, the IONFlex and the IONFlex 2X. One has a single rechargeable battery, the other has two. Like the ILife Robot, they won't replace your regular vacuum cleaner, but a cordless sure comes in handy when you have quick cleanups to do.
Who would have ever guessed we would love something as simple as an over the sink drying rack?
If you ever wished you had more room to drain pots, pans, rinsed vegetables, whatever....you might want one, too. It's sturdy, attractive, and rolls out of sight when it isn't needed. Bet you wish you could say that about some people you know.
So what's not to love?? And at just $25, it's a great gift item, too.
What? You don't already have one of these??
We bought ours three years ago when the pressure cooker we'd had for many years almost blew up. This baby is not only replaced that, but it's also a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and yogurt maker. And with plenty of recipes online, you'll never run out of ways to use it.
Just google "instant pot recipes" and prepare to be amazed. Beef brisket. Bone broth. Chili. Potato corn chowder. Cheesecake. Cheesecake??? Yes, really. You don't want to live another day without an Instant Pot. Legal in all 50 states. What are you waiting for?
Chances are, you're wondering "What's an "aebleskiver?" The word literally means "apple slices" in Danish, but that doesn't really explain what this is. Think "zeppoli", "beignets", or "donut holes" and you'll be headed in the right direction. You can fill them with jelly, roll them in sugar, or enjoy them plain.
Whether you're craving a tasty little snack, looking to impress someone with your cooking skills, or trying to find a gift for someone who seems to have everything, this pan might be just the ticket. It comes with recipes that are easy to make, and absolutely yummy.
Okay, we admit it. We don't always eat enough vegetables. But when we decided to have shrimp scampi for dinner the other night, we remembered our spiralizer -- and Instead of pasta, made zucchini noodles. The meal was delicious, in case you're wondering.
We're big fans of OXO. We have quite a few of their products and you can't go wrong with any of them. If you're not familiar with spiralizers, take a look. Be sure to watch the 30-second video. You might be inspired. The apple slices were indeed a life-changer.
We've had these measuring spoons for several years and absolutely love them. They nest inside each other and have a narrow end on one side and a round end on the other. That makes it convenient for getting stuff out of spice jars and other narrow containers.
The "two spoons in one" aspect also comes in handy when you have to measure, say, a teaspoon of baking soda and a teaspoon of cinnamon for a recipe. It saves you the trouble of rinsing a spoon to make it clean before you measure something else. To top it off, these are magnetic. Seems Prepworks thought of everything, and we're in awe of their genius.
Since we already had a blue KitchenAid refrigerator and a blue KitchenAid dishwasher, of course we had to have a blue KitchenAid Kettle. With eight other colors to choose from, we're sure you'll find one that looks great on your stove.
We like everything about this product, especially the loud whistle that lets you know when your water is hot and ready. When you get to be our age and are prone to forget, it's a good idea to know the water's boiling before the smoke alarms go off. We don't need that kind of stress.
Breathing dry air isn't good for you or for your furniture. So what's the solution? Small tear drop humidifers that have to be refilled twice a day are a nuisance. Large evaporative humidifiers can be noisy. Ultrasonic humidifiers that produce white dust create yet another problem.
After experiencing all the above, we decided to try the Levoit 6L ultrasonic humidifer along with a Waterdrop water filter, and we're glad we did. We put it in the Great Room and it's doing a great job! It's also good to see the face on our humidity gauge with a smile instead of a frown. Small things like that can really affect your whole day.
We saw this on Shark Tank several years ago. The inventor sprayed it in his mouth to show how safe it was. That was good enough for us, and we've been using the Better Life all natural cleaner ever since, along with their hand soap, furniture polish, glass cleaner, stain remover, etc.
Better Life products are safe to use around pets, kids, and people of all ages. Unlike many "green" products, these really work, and are reasonably priced. We prefer the unscented versions, but they also offer the option of naturally scented products. Cary sage and citrus cleaner, anyone?
Linda was introduced to homeopathic medicine 40 years ago, and she says it's the best thing she ever learned. It's handy to know how to take care of yourself when you''re suffering the ill effects of bad takeout at 2 in the morning -- or find yourself in an equally unpleasant situation.
If you're not familiar with homeopathy, it's something you might want to learn. It doesn't replace traditional medicine -- that's why they call it "complimentary" -- but it's safe, inexpensive, and truly empowering. We also recommend "Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine" to go along with this kit. It may just change your life. You can thank us later.
As someone who doesn't have time to learn new technology, Linda was hesitant to buy this device. But paying Spectrum every month for cable boxes just didn't make sense. Why rent when you can own? And for less than thirty bucks, it seemed like a risk worth taking.
Setting this up was as easy as could be, and it works like a charm. To boot, Roku has great customer service if you need it. Even Ellen, who often likes to stay with what's tried and true, is happy with this new device. You might also want to check out Amazon's Fire TV sticks. Either one will do the job.
These are the shoes Linda usually wears when the weather is warm. Guests often ask where she bought them, and she's always surprised. She never thought they'd attract so much attention. She just likes to be comfortable.
So here's your chance to be noticed -- or "Uneek", as it were. The sandals are made for men and women, and with a variety of colors and sizes to choose from we won't be surprised if you want more than one pair. For best selection and lowest prices, don't wait until summer. Buy now and be ready. It isn't too early to dream about spring.
These are the socks Linda often wears when the weather is cold. Guests often ask where she bought them, and (like with the sandals) she's always surprised. Who knew socks could draw so much attention?
So here's your chance to have some of your own. They come in different patterns and arrive in a nice little gift box. An added plus is that the company has great customer service, and guarantees your satisfaction. So if you're ever unhappy with your purchase, you can complain to them, not us. We prefer happy people.
Clean and sterilize your grill easily with a BBQ Steam Brush. This is the best grill brush we've ever had, and Ellen loves using it.
Just fill it with water and you're good to go. This is an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to eat grilled food that tastes like today, not yesterday. Wrap your mind around that.
We'd be remiss if we talked about Amazon and didn't mention Amazon Prime. You'll not only get faster shipping on many items they sell, but there are added perks to the deal. Prime Video, for example, lets you watch many movies and TV shows at no extra charge. The Prime Originals -- made for Amazon shows -- have gotten lots of attention in recent years. "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is one we especially liked.
With this free 30-day trial, you can give it a whirl. Amazon Prime isn't just about faster shipping, there are many extras they've added that you might find worthwhile.
