Calphalon Roasting Pan

As soon as there's even the slightest chill in the air, it's just basic human nature to get a hankering for roasts. Why? Roasting is best during the fall and winter months, when you don't mind the heat that leaving your oven on at 350°F for two hours brings to the house. Hearty meals like beef stew and roast chicken with all the trimmings also taste best when it's a little cold out.

So if you're going to be making a lot of roasts this season (we bet you are!), it's a great time to upgrade your roasting gear. Consider investing in this Calphalon 16-inch roasting pan ($50, Amazon). Yes, you can put it to good use even if you're not hosting Thanksgiving! And even if you're not a meat eater, you can use this to roast, say, cauliflower.

The pan is the definition of "heavy-duty," made of sturdy hard-anodized aluminum with a nonstick coating, and has two large handles on each side for easy maneuvering in and out of the oven. Our favorite part, though, is the elevated rack, made specifically for large turkeys, chickens, hams, and beef, allowing them to cook evenly while fat drains away (and, quite deliciously, into whatever veggies you have roasting below it).

Snatch it up now and you'll be extra prepared if you happen to end up hosting Thanksgiving.

When it comes to finding inexpensive storage solutions for your home, IKEA is a great place to start. The same is true when we're talking about pantries, specifically.

The pantry solutions at IKEA are affordably priced, smart, and not terrible to look at (should guests end up hanging out in your pantry during your next dinner party). Here are our favorites—and all of them happen to be $10 or less. Read it on The Kitchn

NOPE.  Trust—when America becomes the United States of Facebook, you'll be really glad you invested in this Lego Boost Set ($160, LEGO), which features over 800 pieces that your kid can use to build whatever she can think up, and a companion app that teaches basic coding that will allow her to bring her creations to life, even making them move and talk.

Prepare iPrep Tablet Stand

If you're a fan of cooking from online recipes, you've probably gotten your fair share of schmutz on your tablet as you pick it up to refer back to the recipe, mid-prep, without clean hands. Sure, you could stop to wash your hands each time you need to check in on your next move, but that takes up precious time — and when the garlic is starting to burn, that's just not in the cards.

 A good solution? This Prepare iPrep Tablet Stand.  Accommodating iPads, Kindles, Surfaces, and just about any other tablet device, the adjustable stand allows you to orient the gadget however you like to view it (whether vertical or horizontal), so your recipe is viewable the entire time you're cooking. The accompanying stylus pen allows you to interact with the screen without gunking it up, and the non-slip rubber grip base will keep it in place on any work surface you have.
