Rice Cooker

This is my new favorite tool to have in the kitchen and for all the wrong reasons!  Have you ever had one of those cravings late at night and could do nothing about it?  You know the ones, where you want a big slice of chocolate cake (or any kind)?  I know I have and […]

A feature I am going to try to do each week (or month, we’ll see how it goes) is going to be a “featured product”. Something I’ve used and love and think others will as well.
