Pioneer Woman is Taking Over My Kitchen

Ree Drummond is one of my favorite Food Network stars. I started watching her in 2013. At first, I only watched Food Network Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Occasionally, I watched the history of different foods. One Saturday morning, I was up early and Ree was on. She was working on recipes you could make now... Continue Reading →

When Did Black Friday Become Black Novemeber

Not so long ago, Black Friday was a gruesome battle for savings. In the U.S., people impatiently waited for retailers to open their doors. The violent frenzy led to injury. On rare occassions, a few people passed away. The build up to the mayhem comes from marketing and a bit of luck. Ads and commercials... Continue Reading →

Ode to the Wooden Dollhouse I Never Finished

The mind is a funny thing. I was scrolling through Magnify Your Style's Pagefeed for content to like, comment, or share.

From Pocket Camp to Animal Crossing New Horizons back to Pocket Camp

Webtoon One Daily Free Episode Ensures Popular Completed Series Continue to Make Revenue for Creators

Webtoon is my favorite self care application. I enjoy reading, but I can't read like I used too. Back in grade school, I loved getting lost in a book. As an adult, I choose not to make time for that type of reading. If I do, there is a reason for it. Those reasons are... Continue Reading →

Are Digital Recipes Replacing Print Cookbooks

During the 90s, I used to flip through cookbooks to figure out what I was going to make. Sometimes, I'd cut the suggested recipes off of food packages. I didn't have a great filing system. So, they were scattered throughout the spice rack and cookbooks. In the early 2000s, I started searching the web for... Continue Reading →

Stop Making Undercooked Homefries

Have you tried to make homefries? If so, do you have trouble balancing a crispy outside with a soft center? I used to struggle with this. I tried different oils and seasoning. Whether I baked them or pan seared them, the potato always tasted raw. Turns out I was missing an important step. About five... Continue Reading →
