Christmas At Crate and Barrel

“There’s no better time for baking than during the holiday season. Enhance this year’s creations by using Christmas bakeware. To give an especially celebratory vibe to your creations, consider using red bakeware to cook and serve the dishes. Is your vibe more minimalist and monochromatic? Opt instead for white bakeware, easy to stylize alongside dinnerware of many shades. Whichever route you choose, there’s holiday bakeware for sweet treats of all sorts.”

“Pie dishes and cookie sheets help you craft timeless Christmas desserts, while versatile baking pans also work well for cakes and breads. Christmas kitchen accessories such as rolling pins, spatulas and measuring cups are all smart to have on-hand when diving into the baking process. Seasonal designs featuring snowflake and Christmas tree motifs make the delicious end result feel all the more celebratory. Browse Christmas kitchen essentials to find the tools that are best for your cooking space.”

Word of the Day – Escrow

An Escrow is a financial agreement between two people or organizations in which money or property is kept by a third person or organization until a particular condition is met. It helps make transactions more secure by keeping the payment in a secure escrow account which is only released when all of the terms of an agreement are met as overseen by the escrow company.
