About 8 months ago I started craving an apple oat bar.  This was weird because I don’t know if I had ever had anything like what I was actually craving.  What I wanted was something that wasn’t like a granola bar…something a bit cake-ier, but not like cake.  I wanted something that wasn’t overly sweet, […]

Post in partnership with Tristar Products Inc. I had never heard of shishito peppers, let alone taste one, until we moved to Japan for the first time in 2002.  Since then I have been making up for lost time, eating them whenever I can get my hands on them.  My favorite way to eat them […]

Why didn’t the mother potato want her daughter to marry the famous newscaster?  Because he was a commentator.  Bahahahahahaha!  Ok, sorry, I’ve got kids, remember?  I currently live in the land of corny jokes!  But in all honestly, I don’t think that “common-taters” exist.  I love all taters.  But sweet potaters do take the tater […]
