Learning new things...

Posted by Louise Meyers on

I am constantly learning from our Pryde’s customers to approach things in a different light. Today, “Richard” was in seeking a grapefruit spoon for his butternut squash. What a simply brilliant alternative to the slow-stranding fork. He expertly said, “butter, garlic and a little parmesan and you are set!” I would have NEVER thought of a grapefruit spoon for such a simple task. Perhaps that is why I don’t bake squash more often even though I have a terrific recipe that I will share below. Last month it was a useful tip from “Carol” about Kansas City’s own Vain vanilla.

Jim's Retirement & Pryde's 50th Anniversary

Posted by Louise Meyers on

It was a sweet afternoon of current and former employees sprinkling him with love and well wishes.  Jim came to us by way of his son,  my high school friend, Blake Fries.

The v-prep slices potatoes thick or thin, juliennes or makes the perfect french fry. It is safe and easy...

Cake, Mosser Glass and Summertime Memories

Posted by Customer Support on

Dear Friends, One of my favorite things to do in the summertime is to make a Hummingbird Cake. I channel the vivid memory of my Grandmother Anna’s cheery oilcloth covered kitchen table simply set with a beautiful cake stand and colored glass cake plates. I am constantly using my own beautiful Mosser Glass cake stands not only for memory-making cakes but for displaying fresh market vegetables or to make an abundant cheese tray more interesting and multi-leveled.  The Mosser Glass Company  in Cambridge Ohio produces some of the finest American classic cake stands, glassware and dinnerware reminiscent of a simpler...
