The Wonderful World of Waffling (a review)

A few years ago we were shopping for a waffle iron for my mother-in-law. Along the way we ended up buying a waffle iron ourselves and I impulsively bought a cookbook to go along with it. The book in question? Will it Waffle? by Daniel Shumski. I was drawn in by the image on the cover and … Continue reading The Wonderful World of Waffling (a review)

X to G: Motorola Phone Review (ish)

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not super tech savvy. I know enough shit to be dangerous and to follow along with reviews and mostly know what the specs mean.

Review: The Chinese Takeout Cookbook

Recently we were drawn to one of our favorite cookbooks. We made recipes from it for nearly a month. The book? The Chinese Takeout Cookbook by Diana Kuan.

Don’t Get Caught Looking at Your Shoes*

When you realize it's time to retire a favorite pair of shoes it makes you reflect on everything those shoes have been through ... err ... everything that you've been through.

Take it Down to Project Town
