Danny Trejo has entered the elite group of authors – from badass Snoop Dogg to ex-con Martha Stewart – to offer up a cookbook that is getting solid reviews. If you’re looking for authentic Mexican recipes, you just found it! Sprinkle in his backstory and (TA-DA) you have a book that needs to be in your collection… And who doesn’t love tacos (or Trejo – he’s so cute and cuddly)?
The Mistress of Horror is now your constant dinner companion. Need some salt – try her left “one”, pepper – that’s her right side! Elvira and her (ahem) assets will shake up your meal.
This one has our attention due to our two favorite words – “Chocolate” and “Truffles”. A lot of 5-Star Reviews tell us that this is easy, delicious and teaches you how to make Chocolate Truffles in the future without needing additional kits. We can only imagine how amazing the house will smell when you start creating – and most importantly (and we can’t say this enough) you get Chocolate Truffles! (Yep, still love those words…)
And there you have it – with an apple sauce base and habaneros, Sphincter Shrinker makes an unforgettable addition to anything you want that needs a little (scratch that) a “buttload” of extra heat. The whole apple sauce “thing” creates a dangerous illusion of baby food, unicorns and Winnie the Pooh – but you should be thinking molten lava, Satan’s jockstrap and solar flares.
You’ve seen it (probably too many times), you’ve smelled it (definitely too many times), and now you can bake it (gotta smell better than (well you know…). Cookie butt cookies are sooo much better than their inspiration. (Little chocolate morsels may be used for optimum effect.)
Good ol’ Dan the Sausageman has taken the standard Meat & Cheese Gift Box and tweaked it with extra goodies. So if you’re feeling a “little extra”, you won’t want to show up emptyhanded at parties – or you’ll put the best Foodie gift under the tree this year. Trust Dan on this!
Settle down folks, it’s a cookbook… We just weren’t sure whether to put this in the “Literary Corner” or “Foodie & Drinkie Stuff”, so we’ll put it in both places… (Sorry, there really was no other way we could write this post – nor would we want to. We’re just in that kind of a mood!)
If you liked Death Wish coffee – you’re gonna LOVE Wake the Hell Up! ultra-caffeinated ground coffee. Medium to dark roast with all the caffeine and more – and with yummy flavors like Blueberry, Cannoli, Jamaican Me Crazy and Peanut Butter Cup. A fresh taste with no bitter aftertaste – so here’s your kick in the pants to Wake the Hell Up!
Forget what your Mom told you – It’s OKAY to play with your food (in fact, we encourage it). Make foams, gels and bubbles with this molecular gastronomy kit that takes your culinary prowess to new levels – and unlike my food which has been compared to “science experiments” (and not in a good way…), you will use science to make spectacular dishes.
Great Balls of Boba – we have Bubble Tea! If you don’t know what that is – you are not alone (we are deep diving into Bing after we saw this!). Apparently it can be any combination of tea, milk, syrup, fruit and little tiny tapioca balls for texture and flavor – and a little snack when the drink is gone. This 4-flavor variety pack is a great way to introduce or immerse yourself in a fun little beverage.

Now back to business…
It’ll be soup season soon and you’ll need a cute little helper to hold your spoon. Lucky for you, here he is! And he holds more than spoons – so not only is he a darned cute kitchen companion, but he is happy to help out.
If you have THE perfect guacamole recipe – you’re only half way there. You must have this avocado serving bowl to totally win the guac game. This hand-painted ceramic bowl and lid (with spoon included) needs to be on your table!
Maybe “stumble” is not the best word to use when pitching a DIY Gin Kit, but we DID stumble across this while searching for a gift for a coworker – and the search is over! Go all “mad scientist” and create your own artisanal blends and recipes – or follow instructions to make more traditional gins. Botanicals, spices and your own Liquid Courage flask – this kit has all you need to transform plain old Vodka into one-of-a-kind, extraordinary Gin.
Among life’s big fat “little” annoyances (leaving no toilet paper in bathroom or empty food packages in fridge and cabinets) is the open chip bag scenario. Either other people don’t think to roll them closed, use a chip clip or even deploy the “rubberband-and-break-the-goodies-last-ditch-effort” move. There is a way to save your relationship AND your sanity – reseal the bag the same way it was originally sealed. And this is the mini heat sealer that will do it. Simply glide over the opening of any package that can melt and, voila, no more stale snacks (or cereal/frozen food/etc.).
Too cold to go outside to play? Get a little salty in the kitchen and go all mad-scientist with this variety pack of gourmet finishing sea salts. Not a sampler pack – but enough to use repeatedly (and packaged in reusable cork and glass jars). A gourmet must for you foodies!
Add this to your emergency preparedness stash and filter unsafe water – lot’s of it. Filter almost 800 gallons per straw – keep in car, home or at work – and don’t worry about shelf life, it lasts indefinitely even after opening.
Ok, we’re officially obsessed with waffles and this is seriously amazing. Add your favorite ingredients and make the best breakfast or toss in some fruit chunks for snack bowls in minutes!
Let these little kisses sprinkle a little extra love on your foodie goodness – not to mention they are too stinkin’ cute!
For the lovers of wine, whiskey or bourbon (actually whatever you want to put into it) – you will love this American White Oak Aging Barrel. Age your favorite drink in this 2-liter, laser-engraved cask – and Voila(!), you have your own little distillery at home.
And then there’s this… If you ever wanted to eat like an Astronaut – you’re in luck! Order this variety pack and get two pouches each of Neapolitan, Banana Split and Strawberry Ice Cream. It’s a great little snack for camping, school, Neptune, movie night – any time you want a no-mess treat.
From the wild rainforest of Tasmania, we bring you what ultimate foodies regard as the rarest and finest honey in the world. Christmas Bush is said to have a spicy, rich caramel kick; and Leatherwood is described as divine, craveable, amazing – or simply THE BEST.
Tired of being promised the moon and the stars? Demand the whole darned galaxy. Covet the cosmos – different sets of gourmet flavors will have you sucking on a supernova! So impressive and beautiful that you may not want to eat, and that’s okay too.
Truffles? Yes, please! Three different kinds?! Brain Explosion. Share some truffle love with all your food.
Go Authentic, Go Italian! Drizzle these amazing flavors on your food for a healthy treat for the taste buds. Make this a Christmas gift they’ll love – and use over and over.
Smile and say “Cheese”, then smile and make cheese – and smile and eat cheese! Make all different kinds of cheeses, including Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Feta, Marscapone, and good old Cream Cheese. This gets a big fat Oh Yes from us – and someone on your Gift List will love this (she writes as her mouth starts to water…)
For the dog lovers out there – who wouldn’t want a cup of Wet Nose Nudge or Muddy Dog? Grab a 8-pack sampler of really good coffee with really goofy dog names – but get them fast, supplies are low (we just had to post as a Holiday gift idea).
Spice things up without rummaging through cabinets to find all the ingredients you need. This convenient rotating caddy will also measure out the amount needed – so go pro in the kitchen and go all “mad scientist” with your food!

When you’re busy running around or travelling, don’t take chances on settling for cardboard-tasting coffee where (or if) you can find some – just bring your own. All you need is your favorite coffee grounds and hot water. Brew and drink from the same container; so clean-up is a breeze. Mother’s Day is coming and she’ll love this!
Size matters – so go big AND go home (to eat giant candy)! And the Amazon reviews on these are sooo entertaining… According to the Questions section, the Gummy Bear is anatomically correct, but we have our doubts. Either way – these are great gifts for Gummy lovers.
UPDATE: Husband and kid love their hot sauce – kid loved the taste and husband drank all kinds of beverages to put out the fire. So we deduced that it has a great flavor and husband isn’t as tough as the kid. Does rate 35,000 on the Scoville Scale.
Coffee with a bourbon flavor kick! Watch their faces when you tell them you had Jim Beam for breakfast.
It’s about time that salt and pepper grinders got streamlined. Now you only need your thumb and you get exact placement of your spices. Quality stainless steel inside and out – so your grinders will stand the test of time and use!

There are no better words that I can use to describe Death Wish, so I will just post a customer’s review of this double-caffeinated coffee –
“I AM DRINKING THIS COFFEE RIGHT NOW AND I CANNOT STOP SHOUTING AND WRITING IN CAPS LOCKS IT IS SO GOOD AND IT IS SUPER CAFFINATED AND PUNCTUATION IS FOR LOSERS THAT LIKE WEAK COFFEE“.
And there you go…
