This little thing really works - BluApple Fresh Guard

August 02, 2017

This is how it works;


Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage.

The Bluapple® is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not "wear out", but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity. A-One Year Refill Kit rounds out the Bluapple® ethylene gas management product line, allowing consumers to reuse Bluapples® and not add them to landfills.

Cocktail Shaker

May 17, 2017

I received a message through Facebook asking what, or rather who's cocktail shaker I use.  they liked the one on my header for this page.  Well actually I have never bought one, all the ones I have were gifts.  My favorite one was the large glass one that was given to me by a good friend, but it broke when I was shaking a Martini.  The one I use now use every day is from William Sonoma, it is pictured here. 

I do own about 8 different shakers, a few glass ones which will only be used to stir on shake anything.

I know this really has nothing to do with cooking, but I love mine, it's great in taking a collection of beers to an event or party.


 The next time you’ve got to transport a six-pack, trash the flimsy cardboard and stash your bottles into this damn stylish holder. It’s made from Bay Area California Redwood reclaimed from bridges, tunnels, and barns. Load it up with some prized beers and boom: instant host gift. Or you can keep it all for yourself — we would, too.
