Have your cake, hold the heat

In the mood for brownies, but don't want to heat up the house? This new 5-in-1 countertop appliance lets you have and eat your cake without turning on the oven.

You're my favorite deputy! Pop Art Toaster

Kids are notoriously picky eaters. I have one child who deigns to eat a few bites every third day or so. Maybe I can tempt him into more regular mealtimes with the 5-in-1 Tasty Baker from Pop Art Toasters. (If the name sounds familiar, it's because they also make a Creativity Coloring Kit .) Use it to make pancakes, waffles, muffins, quick-breads, and even brownies in fun Disney shapes kids will enjoy.

The Tasty Baker comes with a booklet full of recipes and ideas. I'd go for whole wheat and pureed veggies in the mixes to make healthier snack food for my kids to munch on. Plus, the idea of baking brownies without turning on the oven really appeals to me.

The standard Mickey molds run about $35, and there's a new Toy Story version being released now.
