Keep the trash safe from your nosy pets! In addition to the obvious dangers of cleaning product poisons or choking hazards, the bacteria and molds found in rotting foods can seriously endanger your furry friends . . . they can't distinguish between spoiled and fresh yums!
The millions of bacteria found in your old take-out or spoiled meat can lead to food poisoning and inflammation or bloating of the intestinal tract and abdomen (bacterial enteritis). What's more other foods like cheese, nuts, and pasta are ripe environments for a variety of molds that can produce the scary-sounding tremorgenic mycotoxins, substances that cause symptoms similar to snail bait or strychnine poisoning. If your pup has ingested these metabolites, look out for muscle tremors, spasms, seizures, and elevated temperature – it can require overnight hospital care so bring a pet to a vet if you suspect it!

This summer popsicles are all the rage. While YumSugar's been experimenting with them for weeks now, I have yet to join her on this icy adventure. The reason I haven't made popsicles is because I don't own any popsicle molds. However, I'm dying to whip up some fabulous frozen treats, so can you help me find some popsicle molds? Look for popsicle molds in any color, shape, or size. If you find some cool sticks, save those as well! Bookmark everything you find in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Popsicle Molds. Thanks for your help and happy hunting!

This weekend the Internet went wild over a new breakfast tool. Actually it's not so much a tool as it is an unnecessary accessory. If your breakfast needs a bit more bang! then check out these Gun Egg Fryers. They're stainless steel molds designed to help you shape your fried eggs. So, while you're waiting for the next Grand Theft Auto release, you can get your gun fix over breakfast.
Oh and if eggs aren't your thing, I'm sure these stainless steel gun molds can be used for pancakes too.
When I first saw this S-XL baking pan, I thought it was pretty cool. It's a silicone mold that pre shapes any cake into fifteen separate, different sized slices. It allows one person to have a small piece and another to have a large piece. Yet, the more I thought about it, the more I disliked it. It won't really work for any cake; what happens to the indentations when you frost it? Actually, with the uneven layers, can you even frost it? What do you think?
Today just about any and every food mold exists. If you want to make a cake in the shape of Super Mario, there is a mold that will get the job done. Molds are not only fun for cakes but for eggs, popsicles, and ice cubes as well. Due to the growing amount of molds that are saved in the Yum Market, it's safe to conclude that molds are an up and coming trend. I want to get my hands on these Rocket popsicle molds that krys786 saved. Can you imagine all of the fun desserts on a stick you could make with them? The possibilities are endless! Scroll the list below to check out more magnificent molds.
I've been infatuated with Valentine's Day all week and today is no different. You aided me in my romantic fascination by saving your sweetly sappy foodie finds in the Yum Market on TeamSugar. How could I not share a few of the best ones with you all???
TNgirl found the cutest heart fondue set at the reasonable price of $15. I like how it's portable and only needs a candle, excellent for the on-go-gal. Oh and the two metal fondue forks with hearts on the end are absolutely adorable.
Two more, so read more
