A few favorite things: Everyday products you need now

Sometimes I have to pause because the words I’m saying sound like they were scripted directly from an infomercial. My words are genuine, but when I find a product I really like I sometimes act out these live infomercials, usually in my kitchen.

My latest infomercial moment came a couple weeks ago during game night at my house. Halfway through the night I noticed we had already eaten the entire bowl of hummus. “No worries,” I said as I hoped out of my chair. “I can make more using my Magic Bullet.”

I proceeded to give a demonstration of how to make hummus in less than a minute. “You don’t even have to chop the garlic,” I said as I tossed two cloves in the bullet along with a can of chickpeas, some olive oil and cumin. I understand that my enthusiasm during the demonstration might have seemed like a bit much, but homemade hummus in less than a minute? That’s pretty amazing.

If I were Oprah, I would shout out that everyone gets a Magic Bullet. But alas, I’m not Oprah, I’m just sharing a few of my favorite things.

 

The Magic Bullet

From smoothies to dips to soup, this device is so much more convenient than a blender. And it takes up much less space.

31 Gifts Large Utility Tote

I use it to cart around everything from groceries to Christmas gifts to clothing-swap clothes. It’s such a versatile product. I bought one for my mom and mother-in-law, and we talk about how much we use them. If you have a mother- or sister-in-law or any female who you don’t know that well but want to get them a super nice gift, get this tote.

Olay Pro X Face Cleansing Brush

For less than $30, I purchased this battery-operated, waterproof face cleansing brush. It works with any type of face soap and provides a relaxing massage with every wash. It also opens up your pours so your moisturizer and anti-aging creams work effectively. www.olay.com

 

Wusthof Knives

When my husband wanted to register for a $300 knife set for our wedding, I though he was insane. But we ended up getting it with all the gift cards we received. These knives have transformed the way I cook. My prep time has been cut in half. I’m able to make 30-minute meals in 30 minutes. If you like to cook, splurge on a good knife set. www.wusthof.com

 

Thorlo Women’s Lite Running Micro-Mini Low-Cut Sock

I never had a favorite sock until my mother-in-law got me a few pairs of these for Christmas. They are the perfect running sock. These socks are formfitting with enough extra cushion to make it feel as if you are running on clouds.
