Be Thankful For These Five Turkey Day Fitness And Sports Products

Thanksgiving--that time of year when we give thanks for the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie with which we stuff our faces.

Nestle Working On "Exercise In A Bottle"

What if you could get the benefits of exercise without stepping foot in a gym, on a track, a court, without waking up early to get in your run, make your yoga class, go for that bike ride? What if you could just drink something and get the kind of calorie burn you would if you put in a couple thousand meters on the rower?

5 Slow Cookers That Are Better Than All The Rest

I tend to think of seasons in terms of the food we eat and how I prepare meals for my family; it’s either grilling season or slow cooker season. The warmer months of spring and summer are filled with fresh vegetables, salads, and everything and anything on the grill.

Whether you are looking to purchase your first slow cooker or upgrade to a newer model, these five are as droolworthy as the food in them.

You can even "play" with your tea while it is steeping by making the fish swim around your cup.

Want To Make Fortune Cookies With Your Own Fortunes?

Fortune cookies are something that everyone looks forward to at the end of a meal of Chinese food. It is not so much for the cookie itself as for the message inside.

You can make your own fortune cookies, complete with fortune, with the nifty Fortune Cookie Maker.

Want To Be Able To REALLY See What You Are Eating?

Many of us are becoming more concerned about the food we put in our mouths -- and not without good reason. From how the food is raised to how well it is cleaned to the safety of the preparation we all need to be concerned that what ends up on our plate is healthy, clean, and contaminant free. For the more paranoid among us one design team has come up with the ultimate tool for food safety checks -- the Magnifying Spoon.

Want A New Way To Crack Nuts?

It is that time of year to indulge in the enjoyment of fresh nuts and practice our skills at getting them out of the shell. There doesn't seem to have been much improvement in nutcrackers since Tchaikovsky turned one into a popular ballet -- until now. The Naomi Nut Cracker can take aim and smash your nut in seconds and it is a lot more fun than the old fashioned kind.

Fight The Cold With Booze Smuggling Mittens

Alcohol concealing wearable items are not a new trend, but they're often lacking the functionality of the original item.

This winter, a greatly innovative solution has been delivered that has seasonal benefits.
