Disclosure: Thanks to Crafts Direct for sponsoring this post!
Growing up in central Minnesota, anytime someone talks about crafts or scrapbooks, the Crafts Direct name comes up! Crafts Direct is a locally owned store here in St Cloud, Minnesota and it happens to be one of my very favorites! This store is so much more than craft items. You can also find cute home decor items, a kitchen section, seasonal items, and even a cafe! They also offer various classes, and donate to many organizations in the community!
Today I'm sharing a new product at Crafts Direct! These Mini Baker Round Stonewares are so colorful and functional! They are perfect for any kitchen! You can find 9 colors available, and what's best, these Mini Bakers are oven, microwave and dishwasher safe! The handles stay cool in the microwave and the cover is so handy to prevent microwave messes.
I love using them to make individual sized meals, like the amazing Egg, Hashbrown and Sausage Breakfast Bakes below. I also love them for storing leftovers and serving dips! They make perfect gifts for the upcoming holiday season, especially for college students and families. Each one measures 6.25" wide x 3.5" high - 4.5" wide x 2" high inside and holds approximately 2 cups! 100% stoneware!
I have great news! Crafts Direct opened their website to ordering recently, and they have some fun kitchen stuff available, including these Mini Bakers Stoneware! Even better, from now until October 25th Hot Eats and Cool Reads Readers get 20% off when ordering by using the promo code HECR! Head over to their website and start your holiday shopping early!
Crafts Direct can also be found on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and their Blog! Their store can be found at: 620 Sundial Dr, Waite Park, MN 56387.
When your Mini Bakers get delivered, make sure you stop back and give this lovely breakfast recipe a try! It was a crowd pleaser, even for my picky 7 year old! You can use any vegetable or meat combo! It's super easy to switch up and so hearty and filling!
