Welcome to a new series by OnMilwaukee friend, Municipal Court Judge and Man About Town, Derek Mosley.

Although I'm not Oprah, I too have some "Favorite Things." Each day I will feature one locally made item on social media that gives me a little joy. In these times, who couldn't use some joy? 

Take & bake pizza from Sauce & Spice MKE

(3536 W. Fond du Lac Ave - Sherman Phoenix) in Milwaukee. 414.210.4478

Simple concept, great pizza. You customize, they make, you take home and bake. Fresh ingredients, prepared right in front of you, plastic wrapped and ready for your freezer or oven. Cauliflower Crust is available as well. And it's made with love! I have a few in my freezer at all times. My kids love 'em. $6 - $9. Buy Local or stop in at Sherman Phoenix, 3536 W. Fond du Lac Ave. #myfavoritethingsmke

4-pack large crystal clear ice cubes from Singular Ice

If you are particular about the brand of whiskey, bourbon or Cognac you imbibe, you should also care about the ice you use. A larger cube is going to melt slower, which slows down the dilution of your favorite drink. These crystal clear cubes, made here in Milwaukee, look great in your glass and are the perfect accompaniment to that special beverage. A great way to step up your cocktail game. Also great for your Old Fashioned. Get 'em: or found at Ray's, Otto's and Sendiks. #myfavoritethingsmke

Custom Children's Art Necklace from Foxy Ashbury

Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles love the artwork of their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. And Milwaukee based Foxy Ashbury allows you to turn their artwork into jewelry. Immortalize their first drawing with this one-of-a-kind wearable art. A perfect gift. Go here: #myfavoritethingsmke
