CHiP Smart Cookie Oven is an Easy Bake for Cookie-Loving Adults

CHiP Smart Cookie Oven is an Easy Bake for Adults

I loved using my Easy Bake Oven as a kid. Even though the lightbulb-powered oven perpetually underbaked anything that you put inside of it, it was fun and incredibly satisfying to use. And I didn’t really mind that my cakes, cookies and other desserts were underdone at the time. If the convenience of small batch cookie baking still appeals to you enough that you want ...

Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker, reviewed

Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker, reviewed

Kitchen Shot

When I was starting to cook back in high school, I had a handful of cookbooks and a few recipe cards from my mom and my grandparents where they had jotted down some family favorites. The cookbooks were reliable, but the family recipes often left out crucial things, such as the cooking time or temperature. They were still great resources, but they left a lot ... Read More »
