FOODsniffer review

Have you ever done the "does this smell funny" dance when you're preparing to fix dinner? What's that you ask? It's when you take a package of raw meat from the fridge, open it and sniff it.

I've been thinking of replacing the hodge podge collection of pans in my kitchen for quite a while, but when I check the prices of nicer cookware, I change my mind because it's tough to talk myself into paying $100 or more for one frying pan. Lucky for me, I was approached to try out [...]

Everybody knows that a peanut butter or jelly-covered knife laying on the edge of the sink means you haven't decided if you're going to make another sandwich or not.  This keeps the counter free of smears, and it keeps the knife clean - so long as it doesn't fall into the sink.  You won't have [...]

A few years ago when I was over at my brother in law's home, he asked if we wanted some fresh apple juice. He then proceeded to juice up a batch of apples for us with a new juicer he had purchased. The juice tasted great, but then he spent the next several minutes cleaning [...]

Single-serve coffee systems such as Keurig and Nespresso have become so popular nowadays that it was perhaps only a matter of time until a similar pod-based concept was applied to other foods. Flatev brings that same one-touch convenience to making tortillas. Simply place a pod containing the dough of your choice into the drawer and [...]

These ladles appear to be named after the Loch Ness Monster of the Scottish Highlands, but they remind me more of Dino the dinosaur from the Flintstones cartoons. Either way, they are cute as heck and will bring a smile to the face of anyone who uses one. Available through the Animi Causa Boutique, these [...]
