Tea for Two

Despite past squabbles with our brethren across the pond, we still enjoy a cup of tea every now and then. Tea kettles, however, are another story. Actually, they’re pretty easy to use, aren’t they?

Look, if you have a tea kettle, you should probably just keep using it. Environmentally-conscious and whatnot. However, if you’re in the market for a water-boiler of some kind, we highly recommend the Hamilton Beach Cordless Electric Kettle. It heats up water fast – we’re not actually sure how fast, so we glanced at a few reviews per Amazon and it looks like the consensus is about 4 minutes (thanks “Jack” from Saint Paul, MN and “Avid Reviewer ‘A Music Fan'” from San Jose, CA). 

In that brief amount of time, you can publish a poorly-written blog post, hypothetically speaking. Nah – we take at least 8 minutes with these kind of things. And other things.  Kidding, ladies! We’ll be here all week, tip your waiter.

We’re not sure how to end this post now, so we’re just going to go. Do you have any tea kettle recommendations? Tell us in the comments.


Let’s Talk Turkey

roast turkeyYeah, yeah, it’s not Thanksgiving. Also, we didn’t make this, nor did we take the picture. But in true [corporate] American fashion, we are going to take all the credit, and it’s going to be awesome.

Maybe you’re still turkey’ed out from the holidays, but this recipe works just as well with chicken, duck and all things fowl. The trick to juicy bird meat? Cook it breast side down. You’ll need: Read more…


A little information about us: by day, we are just two guys working in graphic design, editing, animation and other glamorous Hollywood-type stuff, but at night…well, that’s when the magic happens.

Jesse likes making pastas, soups, casseroles and other recipes from the 1950’s your grandparents may have enjoyed. He is also an avid fan of dogs, Skyrim and social encounters of all kinds. He maintains a svelte 31″ waistline.

Patrick is the baker of the two. He’s been the proud parent of an active yeast culture for the past few years, and hopes it will go off to a good college and get a nice job as a doctor, or maybe one of those banker-types, someday. He makes killer cinnamon rolls.

Please join us in our adventures in cooking, baking, roasting, frying, and every other type of -ing you can think of (food-related, please, this is a family blog)!
