Silpat® Non-Stick Baking Mats are made of fiberglass and food grade silicone. Silpat® products are completely food safe. They also are FDA, NSF® and Kosher certified.

Can I tell you how much I totally love this? It is awesome. It is saving my cookie sheets. I have made everything from cookies to breaksticks to fish on here. I am just as impressed with it every time I use it! The fact that all I have to do is wipe it down after I’m finished has made me fall in love. This is an awesome product and you should be in your kitchen right now!!

BK Crown Program #Giveaway!

Have you been to Burger King lately? If not, they have made some huge changes that you should be aware of.

The BK CROWN Program comes in a fully interactive Kids Meal box. Sitting atop each box is a newly redesigned BURGER KING® crown, because every kid deserves to be treated like royalty at BURGER KING®! With crowns on their heads, kids can dive into the box, taking it apart, playing fun games and activities that challenge their minds, inspire their imagination and engage with the whole family.

Also, Burger King invites kids to tell them what matters to them most, and they have established a fund to help support the Wildlife Conservation Society, National Parks Conservation Association, and Have It Your Way™ Foundation. By visiting, kids learn how BKC’s charitable partners make a difference. Upon entering BK CROWN Codes and clicking on their favorite cause, each kid’s vote helps BK® choose which charity to give back to! You can also find more games, win prizes and enjoy interactive play there too!

Also for just $9.99, your family can enjoy the “BK™ Family Bundle” which includes a WHOPPER® sandwich, WHOPPER JR. sandwich, two small fries, two small soft drinks and a Kids Meal. Now that’s a deal worth getting together for! Limited time only.

Since my kids loved their BK Kids Meals and the BK Crown Program, I have arranged for one of my lucky readers to get $25 BURGER KING® Crown Card to purchase a kids meal featuring the BK CROWN Program! Here’s what you need to do:…continue reading
