The Sink Gets Glossy

I know there's no excuse for the long hiatus from blogging, but I promise you, I've still been pushing the kitchen contraptions. I recently ended my six month stint writing and working on the food team at 7x7 Magazine here in San Francisco. Yes, folks. I'm in a glossy and I'm not ashamed to selfishly plug it.

Jet on over to the site to see the fruits of my publishing labor and to read some damn good articles from the rest of the talented editors there.

Kitschy Goes Global

I know I've been a bit lax on my kitschy scourings, but I swear there's a good reason. I'm headed to Peru to hike to Machu Picchu and to gorge on ceviche.

In my journeys, I hope to find some culinary tools fashioned by one of the world's most ingenious civilizations. A full report with photos and details when I return.

How's it Hanging?

How many times have you stirred a beverage only to be left without a place to put your spoon? Well these clever hanging spoons bend in the handle to allow the spoon to hang on the inside or outside of the container.

Real A-peel

Changing weather=sniffles, sneezing and another cold season. Boost your immune system by soaking in all the Vitamin C goodness of oranges. But to add further "a-peel" try an Emma Orange Peeler.

Snail-shaped but incredibly functional, these designer peelers come in an assortment of colors. Orange you glad I told you?
