Do you like IKEA and their products?
My favorite is their doll beds which for some reason cats (and bunnies) really like.
Have you ever been to a Trader Joes(for those who aren't familiar with the chain, it is a grocery store that specializes in organic, fresh, and off the wall items, like a Whole Foods with a sense of humor and lower prices)?
We love their bird nests (shredded vegetables, then deep fried and frozen). Ten minutes in the oven and they are the bomb.
Have you ever been to a Tesco(think of a Safeway with a British accent)?
Laugh if you will, but I really love their instant coffee. They always have some great baking items. No shortening, though...
