Shop Savvy with Lulu the Baker

Melissa Bahen blogs about food, family, and farm life at Lulu the Baker. She’s currently putting her keen shopping skills to the test building a dream home (check our Style Spotters blog to see her progress).

Melissa's Picks: She counts Home Goods as a favorite, as well as Pottery Barn and Barn Light Electric. Her tip to keep costs down? Be patient and flexible: Scour the sale sections and look for a coupon code before you buy. Melissa keeps costs in check by splurging on small indulgences like high-quality chocolate, but save by freshening up outdated furniture with a coat of paint and new hardware.

But let's not forget about the food! Melissa calls the Pretzel-Crusted Banana Split Ice Cream Pie filled with hot fudge and caramel sauces, Nutella, and two flavors of ice cream that's topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries a real winner, as well as the Drop Sugar Cookies (which require no chilling or rolling). And she credits the Carmelitas, a recipe from her little sister, as the recipe that really made her blog take off!

Le Creuset’s iconic French oven is the perfect choice for slow cooking, simmering soups and stews, roasting meats and much, much m...ore. This French oven’s unmatched versatility and superior cooking performance make it an addition to your kitchen that you’ll use every day. Suitable for all heat sources: electric, gas, halogen, and induction. Note: The 1 qt. and 2 qt. ship from the vendor and incur an additional shipping charge of $7.50. Includes: French oven and lid Use: Broiler, freezer, stovetop and oven-safe to 500°F Material: Enameled cast iron Care: Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended Warranty: Limited lifetime warranty Made in France HANDCRAFTED IN FRANCE At the Le Creuset foundry in northern France, molten iron is sand-cast from a single mold that’s destroyed after use, explaining why no two pieces are exactly alike. Le Creuset legendary cast-iron French ovens are sand-cast, polished and finished by hand, then sprayed with two coats of enamel and fired twice. No other procedure yields cookware that performs as well. EVENLY CONDUCTS AND RETAINS HEAT Since Le Creuset’s enameled cast-iron cookware evenly distributes heat, the French oven is perfect for slow cooking everything from soups and sauces to chili and chowder. You can also use your French oven for braising meat, roasting whole chickens, making classics like beef bourguignon and cassoulet, or even baking a cake! THE BEST MATERIALS FOR A LIFETIME OF USE The smooth, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking, while the durable interior sand enamel is engineered to resist staining and dulling. With a wide range of sizes and vibrant colors, you’re sure to find just the right one. DESIGNED TO MAKE COOKING AND SERVING EASIER A re-engineered lid makes sure it stays more securely in place and locks in more flavors and aromas. Built-in lid stabilizers create a no-slide fit, and the slip-resistant composite knob is heat resistant to 500°F. Oversized handles (now 45% larger) provide even weight distribution and a secure grip. read more
