The Future of Food  Watch it for free!

FOOD INC.  If you really don’t want to know about your food – where it comes from and what happens to it – don’t watch this. I recommend it though. :D

Food Magazines

Favorite Kitchen Stores

My Spice Sage   

  • Love this herb and spice company! Shop by cuisine- Indian, Spanish, Greek, etc.  And you know what? They give you a free sample in every order. Cool!

West Elm

  • Love, Love LOVE this store. I was so sad to find that the measuring cups (header for my blog) are no longer available to buy. :(

Kitchen Gadgets and Accessories

The best rubber spatula EVER – no seams for gunk and bacteria to get into.

Epicurean cutting board – wish I could get one of everything they make.
