Belgian Waffle Maker 


Winter is barreling towards us, and for a lot of us that means we'll soon be able to draw on the ever-convenient excuse of "It's too cold to go anywhere."

Weekend mornings that were once spent going for a run in the park or checking things off your always-long to-do list can now be spent indoors in cozy pajamas. You can have long, luxurious breakfasts with your loved ones, safe in the assurance that you don't have to go anywhere or do anything from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to sleep. Thanks, winter!

You can make those gloriously lazy weekend morning breakfasts even better by making something special like homemade waffles with this Hamilton Beach Belgian waffle maker ($22, Amazon).

The machine makes light, fluffy waffles in about five minutes (two at a time), and the nonstick griddle allows for easy cleanup. Even better? It stores upright to take up less space in your cabinets.

And just like that, your weekend mornings just got a whole lot better.

Calphalon Roasting Pan

As soon as there's even the slightest chill in the air, it's just basic human nature to get a hankering for roasts. Why? Roasting is best during the fall and winter months, when you don't mind the heat that leaving your oven on at 350°F for two hours brings to the house. Hearty meals like beef stew and roast chicken with all the trimmings also taste best when it's a little cold out.

So if you're going to be making a lot of roasts this season (we bet you are!), it's a great time to upgrade your roasting gear. Consider investing in this Calphalon 16-inch roasting pan ($50, Amazon). Yes, you can put it to good use even if you're not hosting Thanksgiving! And even if you're not a meat eater, you can use this to roast, say, cauliflower.

The pan is the definition of "heavy-duty," made of sturdy hard-anodized aluminum with a nonstick coating, and has two large handles on each side for easy maneuvering in and out of the oven. Our favorite part, though, is the elevated rack, made specifically for large turkeys, chickens, hams, and beef, allowing them to cook evenly while fat drains away (and, quite deliciously, into whatever veggies you have roasting below it).

Snatch it up now and you'll be extra prepared if you happen to end up hosting Thanksgiving.

NOPE.  Trust—when America becomes the United States of Facebook, you'll be really glad you invested in this Lego Boost Set ($160, LEGO), which features over 800 pieces that your kid can use to build whatever she can think up, and a companion app that teaches basic coding that will allow her to bring her creations to life, even making them move and talk.
