Graduation Gifts

We've got plenty of ideas for you, whether you need a gift for a high school or college graduate. 

High school grads need to get ready to go to college.  Cookware induction sets, cookbooks (such as College Cooks: Simple Ingredients, Easy Recipes, Good Tasting Food  by T.C. Stephan and Cheap and Easy Recipes for Busy College Students by Best Recipes 2Day), cookware products for the dorm room, a laptop or iPad, a digital camera, alarm clock, bike, luggage, gift cards (to stores, gas stations and restaurants near school), board games, and, of course, cash for all sorts of things, including textbooks and class fees.

College grads need to get ready for the work-a-day world.  Gift cards for a business wardrobe, fountain pen, travel charger, monogram stationery, basic and ethnic cookbooks, magazine subscription, such as Cooking Light, kitchen essentials, bike, luggage, BBQ grill, and cash for everything else. See "Sally's Recommendations" below for more suggestions.

Father's Day is another major June holiday.  See our recipe selection to the left for recipes Dad will love.



All the best in food, wine, and travel.

Happy June,


Sally Bernstein

Grill Grate

The Hottest Thing in Grilling is Not a Grill....It's a Grate! Forget about the gas versus charcoal debate- the key to better grilling is the Grate. It is, after all, where the meat meets the heat. Over the past 6 years backyard grillers, professional chefs, and competition teams have validated that Grill Grate simply grills food better, a lot better. Perfect for fish, steaks, hamburgers, vegetables and fruit.   Contact 678.361.4491 or

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas & Flavors

Host an Outdoor Patio Party: What better way to celebrate the arrival of warm weather than with an outdoor patio party? Invite friends over for a glass of Rose Sangria, then enjoy each other's company as you prepare Coconut Spiced Lemon Shrimp Skewers and end your meal with a slice of Vanilla and Lemon Farm Cake. The bright flavor notes of Nielsen-Massey vanillas and flavor extracts in these recipes will make this a summer menu that your friends will ask for again and again. For information, click here.

This summer, enjoy some wonderful spicy summer dishes. Take your favorite salsa and include some minced Whole Ghost Peppers to add some extra kick. You can also put 1/8 teaspoon of minced Whole Ghost Peppers to your hamburger meat - that will definitely heat things up! Or add some chopped Whole Ghost Peppers to your favorite pizza... the possibilities are endless. Enjoy the burn!
