Remember sitting on your porch in Phoenix during August and saying, “I’ll bet I could cook a chicken out here!”?

Well, it turns out you can! This countertop Arizona summer can cook a perfect chicken,  french fries, crispy brussels sprouts, fried peaches – all of it. (Well, most of it, but I’ll save my air fryer stew story for another day.)

How does it work? THERMODYNAMIC MAGIC. It moves hot air around, which seals in the goodness and cooks things faster.

It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s waiting for you.

We have two of these so we can cook chicken and multiple veggies at the same time!

Let’s Do It!

I live in the Midwest where it gets cold in the winter. I’m happy sitting out by the fire late into the winter, but often you need supplementary heat in order to do that comfortably.

Firepit blankets  to the rescue.

I really spent a lot of time investigating the right solution here. I felt like I needed 100% wool because we were going to be using them next to the fire where those mini fireballs like to jump out at you and burn holes in whatever gets in their way. I did buy some wool blankets, but they were quite a bit more expensive. It turns out these 80/20 blend blankets do the job perfectly at a fraction of the cost. 

Big, soft, warm, works well in wet weather, and thwarts the fireballs.

If you want to keep a bunch of them in the same place and make them easier to carry around, check out the blanket basket.

No idea what that means, but I wear these every day.

Why should slippers only be for the house?

These are slippers to wear Everywhere!

At first I was a little concerned because the bottom is very rounded, but not an issue!

They are made of wool! I have a summer pair (never too hot) just like the ones above and a winter pair (keeps me warm) that are just a bit higher to keep the snow out.
