French Toast

French Toast

French toast is one of those yummy guilty pleasures that I, personally, don’t indulge in nearly enough. On top of that, it’s easy (and economical) as heck to make. As I do with everything I cook, I make mine gluten free so my wife can enjoy it. Otherwise, well, she’d […]

Spinners Cafe

Spinners Cafe

Spinners Cafe is a cozy little breakfast and lunch joint in Waianae that has good food at good prices. After my wife and I finished exploring Ka’ena Point, we decided to grab some lunch on the way home. As Jan was scoping out the map while I was driving the […]

Instant Pot Popcorn

Why, yes, you can make Instant Pot popcorn! It’s a thing, and it’s also incredibly easy to make. Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks, and is relatively healthy, to boot. Unfortunately, a lot of folks have had trouble making popcorn in their Instant Pots. So I’m going to show […]

Instant Pot Glass Lid

Instant Pot Glass Lid

So, the Instant Pot Glass Lid isn’t necessarily an absolute must have in your Instant Pot accessories list, but it sure can be handy. There are more than a few times when you need to check on what’s going on in the ol’ Instant Pot when it’s not under pressure. […]

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet

If I could only have two “appliances” to cook with, one would definitely by my Instant Pot. The other would have to be my Cast Iron Skillet by Lodge. A cast iron skillet is one of the most versatile pieces of cookware you can own. Those made by Lodge are […]

Heat Resistant Gloves

Heat Resistant Gloves

One of THE best investments you can make in the kitchen is a good pair of heat resistant gloves. THEY WORK. And they’ll keep you from getting burned (unless you’re a complete nincompoop). I tossed my old oven mitts away after I got a pair of these things. After using […]
