Feed Your Valentine!
Valentine Ideas for a Winter in Lockdown
Here are a whole bunch of ways to say I love You with Food and gadgets for Your Valentine. Cooking is something we’re all doing a whole lot more of, and here are some ways to up your game in the kitchen.
Tofu Bud Squeezes out the Water
How did they know that I loved tofu so much? And that only recently I discovered that by coating the pieces in cornstarch, you get totally crispy, delicious tofu? I knew that so I was thrilled when the Tofu Bud showed up at my door.
This press squeezes the tofu so you get that restaurant quality feel and crispiness. It’s easy to use and takes about 15 minutes to get a pound of tofu ready to grill. The drier you can get your tofu, the crispier you can get the edges when you bake or fry it. We all love that crunch!

These Lazy Susans Have French Cheese Class
Tommy and Darrellene Lindsey started Darrellene Designs in Texas. French art and culture have always been a favorite for theirs since our engagement in Paris across from the Eiffel Tower. I love their colorful 15-inch Lazy Susan –it fits perfectly on my table.
Then Tommy thought of the idea of hand-painting a replica of a vintage French cheese label with an Eiffel Tower design. The label was subtly personalized with our last name and anniversary date and Darrellene Designs began.
The sturdy wooden lazy susans come in 15″ and 23″ sizes, decorated with these evocative cheese labels that bring France to anyone’s dining table. They also can customize the artwork.
All of the original designs are hand-painted by Tommy, Darrellene, and Delaney and then printed as a giclee directly to wood. The wood products are all made locally in Texas.
