Do you love online shopping? I do! I love not having to battle the crowds – especially at this time of year, the convenience of shopping at home in my pajamas and the best part – receiving packages in the mail. My latest delivery is this Butter Bell Crock (and my favourite lip balm)

This handy little dish keeps butter fresh and – most importantly – spreadable! Here is an inside view –

The “bell”, underneath the lid, is filled with butter. The lid is the placed onto the bottom dish, which has a small amount of cold water added to it. The water forms an airtight seal over the butter – keeping it fresh but spreadable at room temperature.


That’s the theory – I’m hoping it works. If it does, I might just declare it “The Best Invention Ever”. It will be interesting to see what happens during the inevitable heat waves throughout summer…
I purchased my butter crock here It’s the only Australian store that I’ve found them in so far.

Welcome! I decided to start this blog so I have one place to record my recipe successes (and maybe failures) as well as other creative projects and maybe a few random things. I’ve blogged before, but never with wordpress, so it’s probably going to take me a bit of time to find my way around.
