What I'd really like is a safe, solid 4-5% without having to worry about where interest rates are headed.... (Yes, interest rates will probably stabilize soon, but we're not looking to make interest rate predictions - We just want a fraction of our money growing at a steady rate).

You have options...

I-Bonds are currently yielding over 6%, of course the rate changes every 6 months.

5 years CD rates are up to 5% or more.

I'm sure there's other options as well. It really depends on how long you want to tie up your money.
