Early Christmas Gift Guide Item #2: Silicone Cupcake Holders

Recently I was offered the opportunity to review these Silicone Cupcake Holders by California Kitchenware. We go through quite a few cupcake liners in our house so the idea that I could buy this one set and not have to keep buying the disposables was very attractive. It's especially appealing because this set of 12 cupcake holders is only $7.99 and FREE shipping with Amazon Prime.

As you can see they're bright and colorful. They fit the standard cupcake or muffin tin perfectly. I've already used them twice - once for banana bread muffins and then again for birthday cupcakes. Both times I found them super easy to use. I don't need any grease, the muffins or cupcakes pop out super easy when you turn the liner inside out. I worried that washing them would be difficult, but because you can turn them inside out, I was able to easily and quickly wash off the crumbs and residue inside of the cracks around the outside edge of these liners.

I haven't tried it yet, but you aren't even supposed to have to use the muffin pan, the silicone liners are supposed to stand up independently and cook just the same without the tin. They are freezer, oven, microwave and top rack of the dishwasher safe.

This is absolutely a product I can wholeheartedly recommend. I don't even have any negatives at this point. You should get a set for you and a few others as gifts - it's something they would absolutely use if they bake at all.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
