Here's the scoop...

You know you are falling apart when you strain your neck getting dressed. I am writing to all of you from my couch. I can't move my neck more than a couple millimeters in any direction. Damn hooded sweatshirts! My eyeballs are beginning to feel sore from doing all the work. The muffins I was planning to make will have to wait until tomorrow. I did want to tell you about a couple great kitchen utensils I love though. They are the Oxo Good Grips Medium Cookie Scoop and the Oxo Good Grips Large Cookie Scoop.

The medium holds 1 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough while the large holds 3 tablespoons. You get perfectly round, uniform cookies every time. The release lever means you don't have to use your fingers to get dough out. I have never used the large scoop for cookies yet but they hold the perfect amount of batter for muffins and cupcakes. The medium scoop is ideal for mini-muffins. They are also decent ice cream scoops. I use the medium scoop to make little ice cream balls sometimes. They look pretty cute.

I'm hoping to wake up tomorrow with some neck movement. Not a great way to spend the first day of 2010. I'm thinking it can only get better from here though. Happy New Year!


  1. So sorry to hear about your neck! That is a huge bummer. I love using the scoops for cookie dough, too-- mine isn't as fancy with the rubber handles, so I might have to get on that! Hope you feel better soon!
