We have collected some yummy gifts for those that appreciate tasty treats. We all know them. I’m one of them! The thought of brownies, cookies or macarons brightens up our day.

I’m really excited about Starbucks’ new single serve coffee machine called Verismo. What makes this better than Keurig’s K-cup System is the fact that the Verismo can make espresso, brewed coffee and lattes. Don’t get me wrong, I own a Keurig brewing system and I am thoroughly addicted to the crazy amount of variety of coffees available. My favorite K-Cup flavors are the Millstone Hazelnut Cream and the Folgers Vanilla Biscotti – but I digress. The new Verismo can also make lattes! Starbucks has also released their Milk Pods along with their array of coffee pods.
I found this giant pencil sharpener looking kitchen gadget this morning called Karoto. It was designed by Avichai Tadmor to peel, sharpen & curl ribbons of carrots, zucchini, cucumbers and other similar shaped vegetables to decorate and add flair to your salads and dishes. You can find it at the site Monkey Business where they sell many other designer products.

Why have regular shaped anything if you can make it awesome? If you follow our Instagram feed you might have realized we’re on a heart shaped crazy rampage.

Four our second juicer recipe we will make The Veggie Mojito. We call it a mojito because it has mint but it tastes more like an exotic lemonade. Nutritionists talk about a healthy diet having foods with many different colors. You should eat bright foods of different colors and for example not eat all yellow foods like potatoes, rice, bread, etc. With this juice you will definitely have taken care of your green food group. Several people have asked if you boil the fruits and vegetables before putting them through the juicer. The answer is no. All the food that goes in the juicer should be raw – at least for the purpose of our recipes.
