I was looking for a dish to bring to a potluck, when I stumbled upon this Leek Cheese Crumble. I've been crazy for leeks lately — they're in season right now — and pairing them with cheese sounds heavenly. The hazelnut in this dish should add an interesting flavor profile and the whole thing looks like it will come together easily.

A couple of weeks ago, I called a peanut butter and jelly spreader totally useless. However, many of you thought it was quite useful and admitted to wanting one. When I came across this batter finger — a tool that helps you lick batter from a bowl without getting your finger dirty — I immediately thought of the pb&j spreader. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about the finger; it's fun but I don't know if I want one in my kitchen. I like to lick my fingers when making a delicious cake batter. How do you feel about it? Do you love or hate the batter finger?
