preparamasherNothing like a good old-fashioned potato masher – but with a new design feature. The Prepara Collapsible Potato Masher has a patented quick flip head; just squeeze the handle and the masher head flips flat for convenient storage. Now you can store the potato masher in the drawer along with the other cooking utensils – and it won't jam the drawer when you try to open it. The ergonomic handle accommodates multiple gripping positions to ensure your comfort and the maximum mashing impact. Perfect for mashing potatoes, yams, vegetables and guacamole. We like to make mashed potatoes and will share one of our secrets; we add several peeled whole garlic cloves to the water – with the potatoes– and just mash them along with the potatoes. They add that special "zing."

Carol’s Club – Red Star Yeast


Sometimes simple is better.  Yes we love our digital instant read thermometer for its accuracy and speed. We use it for monitoring the temperature of meat and poultry. However, for baking we use this much simpler, traditional thermometer.

When baking bread, a thermometer is the most accurate way to determine correct temperatures.  The Carol’s Club - Red Star Yeast instant read pocket thermometer, has an easy–to–read dial,displays temperatures from 0° to 220°F, and comes with a pocket case with clip. This thermometer is an essential tool for measuring liquid temperatures when using yeast for bread making. It can also be used to take the temperature of baked breads to ensure that they are finished. (More on this below)

Yeast temperatures for Instant Yeast and Red Star Platinum Yeast:

  • In bread machine baking, liquids should be used at 80°F
  • In traditional baking, Use liquid temperatures of 120°F-130°F.

Price: $5.00 plus $3.95 S/H

There are actually several methods to determine when bread is done. A combination of all is fineespecially for the beginning baker.

  • Visually:  The more often you bake, the more you'll be able to gauge how a finished loaf of bread should look when it's nearing doneness. Usually, the crust should be dry, firm, and a deep golden brown. If the crust is pale, it likely needs a few more minutes
  • Tap the Bottom:  Take the loaf out of the oven and turn it upside down. Tap on the bottom of the loaf. The bread will sound hollow when done.
  • Take the Internal Temperature:  Insert a thermometer into center of the loaf. (Point the thermometer at an angle, or through the side or bottom, to minimize the visual hole) Most breads are finished baking when the temperature reaches about 190°- 200°. For challah, due to the addition of margarine, oil and eggs, many experts recommend a finished temperature of 195°- 200°.
