I'm sure everyone has this happen to them at one time or another. They bake a cake and it reminds them of their mother baking the same type of cake fifty years ago. Or the smell of barbecue ribs reminds... Continue reading

I love the crock-pot. I mean, put stuff in, flip it on, and in several hours: dinner. I realized a few things that I don't like about the crock-pot, however. For starters, raw garlic. There is something very off about... Continue reading
