Slam Dunk

If you love dunking sandwich cookies in milk, this is the kitchen tool for you! The Dipr ($2.99, thedipr.com) is "the ultimate cookie spoon."

By holding onto the frosting of cookies, which doesn't disintegrate in liquids as quickly, you can dunk longer and with less mess. Plus, it's kid-friendly: The Dipr is made of flexible medical-grade plastic.

Flower Power

A cute gift for the little chef in your life, Kizmos' Flower Pot Tool Set ($29.99, lifetimebrands.com/kizmos) is a collection of kitchen gadgets — a turner, slotted spoon, ladle, spoon, and masher — designed to look like flowers, housed in a ceramic vase.

Holy Guacamole

Avocados can be slippery little buggers, which makes slicing them tricky — and potentially unsafe.

To the rescue: The OXO 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer (in white or green, $9.99, oxo.com) lets you split, pit, and slice avocados with one tool.

Shake It Out

The BlenderBottle SportMixer ($14.99 for 28oz and $12.99 for 20oz, amazon.com) is popular for blending up protein shakes — but when put to the test, the manufacturer claims it can also whip cream in two minutes.

Made from Eastman Tritan plastic so it won't retain scents, the shaker couldn't be easier to use: Insert ingredients for anything from pancakes to smoothies, drop in the BlenderBall, then shake.

Line It Up

If you like things just so, then this is the cutting board of your dreams. Fred & Friends' The Obsessive Chef cutting board ($26, amazon.com) is laid out with a grid so you can julienne as precisely as possible. Get chopping!

This silicone tool is designed to help avoid burning the bottom of food and make sure that your meal doesn't mix with any greasy drippings. Plus you can use it as a trivet, for a little extra style on your table!

    • Got a Craving? Here's What Your Body Actually Wants You to Eat (9 photos)

      Ever find yourself rummaging through the fridge or kitchen cabinets for that delicious, satisfying something --except nothing seems to fill that void? Maybe you know what you're craving, but would actually have to leave the house to go and buy it (who wants to do that?), or your craving is so ambiguous that even browsing the supermarket aisles might leave you stuck. Turns out, there's more to your hankering than just hunger. "Often a food 'search' can arise when you're in need of a break from work or sitting, so by nature you get up and stir around," explains Lisa Cohn, RD, a New York City-based nutritionist. "Other times a quest can be triggered by an emotional or physical reaction that leaves us feeling frozen or out of control, and the act of searching for something to eat gives us a determination to take control." VIDEO: How to Make Banana Blueberry Overnight Oats While there are several other potential reasons for sudden cravings, including a nutrient deficiency, sleep deprivation, and low blood sugar, there are healthy and satisfying snack choices you can make to quench a craving until your next meal.

    • Darrelle Revis' attorneys believe TMZ video shows their client is innocent

      TMZ released a video over the weekend of two unconscious men, saying it was video of the aftermath of the altercation that led to New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis being charged with four felonies in Pittsburgh. The video seems to be a positive for Revis’ lawyers though, because they believe it helps them show their client is innocent. The voice on the video – it’s a short clip, and whoever is speaking is not shown – brags about knocking both men out and he tells someone, “Shut up before I knock your [expletive] out next.” Revis’ lawyers claim the voice isn’t of the Jets cornerback.

Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible." But what, exactly, happened in Sweden "last night" was unclear. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Catarina Axelsson told The Associated Press that the government didn't know of any "terror-linked major incidents." The country's government asked the State Department for clarifications on the meaning of Trump's comments. On Sunday, Trump took to Twitter to explain that his statement was relating to a
