More In The Top 10

Listed as one of the "10 Decorations and Tools for Holiday Cookies" by Real Simple was our line of Nature's Colors from India Tree! They loved how easily you can add "razzmatazz" to cookies with these coarse colored sugars, the fact that they are free of artificial dyes and that they come in many different "vivid hues".

Another one of our tools listed in Real Simple's Top 10 are the Ateco Spectrum Food Colors. They liked that the colors are highly concentrated so just a drop or two goes a long way to create saturated colors and that the set includes six basic colors in easy-to-squeeze bottles.

In The Top 10

Our Boughs of Holly Decoratifs from India Tree were listed as one of the "10 Decorations and Tools for Holiday Cookies" by Real Simple! They loved how these decoratifs made cookies look oh so good, how easily you can add detailed accents to gingerbread houses and how simple it is to add a wintry wreath edge on a round sugar cookie.

Can't Get Enough Pumpkin?

Listed as one of the Culinary Institute of America's "Quick Breads", this Pumpkin Bread recipe is an easy way to get more pumpkin into your diet. Quick breads bake up like cakes or muffins rather than traditional breads because of their lack of a yeast leavener, which is replaced by chemical leaveners (baking poweder and baking soda in this case). Nevertheless, with a delicious, warming combo of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg this "bread" recipe is sure to please this holiday season.

New Cookware and Tea Kettles

There's a new addition to our big family of brands and it goes by the name "Chantal". Founded in 1979 by Heida Thurlow, Chantal was born due to the lack of beautiful and functional cookware that was available in the marketplace. Heida is a brilliant female mechanical engineer who couldn't find work in the late 1970s because corporations weren't willing to hire women for that kind of a position. These two reasons gave her the idea to start her own cookware company and ever since then Chantal has developed into a multimillion dollar internationally successful company. Visit our site to learn more about Chantal cookware, cookware accessories and tea kettles. Also, make sure to watch the chefdemo featuring Tre Wilcox, contestant on Bravo TV's Top Chef, where he demonstrates cooking with Chantal's Copper Fusion line of cookware.
