One good gadget
The Foldable Silicone Splatter Guard from Kuhn Rikon is designed so that you can stir and add ingredients to that skillet or saucepan and avoid the splatter on both you and the stovetop. It is microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe and oven safe up to 450 degrees. It's available in 10-inch and 12-inch sizes in green, red and black, at amazon.com and Sur La Table for $16-$20.
One good cocktail
Stir up a spookily delicious cocktail this Halloween using Malibu Black Caribbean Rum. The Malibu Black Cat is simple: 1 part Malibu Black to 3 parts ginger beer poured over ice and garnished with a lime wedge. A 750 ml bottle retails for around $15.
