Amazon is one of my favorite places to shop! Usually I order enough just on one order to get free shipping. It always arrives in time, too, most of the time before the expected arrival date. As a long time customer of Amazon, I have no complaints.
When I saw this email of some great deals, I wanted to share with my readers.
Here’s some great deals for the kitchen:
Calphalon Baking Set
A great price on this Calphalon Omelette Pan set
A great price on this Calphalon 7 qt Dutch Oven!
The Paula Deen Cookware set my hubby got for my birthday! :)
You know how teenagers are! My daughter loves to fix on her hair so I got her an awesome zebra striped straightener and a hair crimper for a great price. She loved them!
She is also taking piano lessons so we got her this wonderful Yamaha keyboard. It sounds great for the price and is perfect for the beginning musician!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Deals for the Season! I hope your holiday season brings you the warmth of family, friends, and wonderful memories!

This crunchy tuber has quickly become one of my favorite potato replacements!
It just satisfies that need to crunch and chew, which I love!
(Don’t these look like the real deal?!)
This crispy tuber has a hint of sweetness and resembles a turnip in appearance. A cup of jicama contains 11.5 g carbohydrates (with 6.4 g being fiber), which is about equal to a carrot. It also brings to mind water chestnuts, so it would probably work great in a stir-fry.
For my Fried Fauxtatoes recipe, I first peeled the jicama and cubed it up into small bite-size pieces. I diced up some onion and skillet fried both in bacon grease for great flavor. The jicama retained its crunch instead of softening like potatoes but it was still a very satisfying breakfast. I topped it with a fried egg.
