Red Bull Simply Cola
Red Bull Simply Cola

Cola… everyone has their favorites.  There are Pepsi people, Coke people… even RC people.  So, before I review this new take on cola (I say “new,” but I really should say “old”) let’s figure out what cola is.  According to WiseGeek: Cola brands over the years have differed in flavorings, and if one looks at a bottle of cola, one...

Salads galore
Salads galore

Over the past week I’ve tried a few different salad (and salad-like) recipes and I thought I’d share some of the winners with you. Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing Don’t let the dressing scare you off… this is a wonderful salad.  I’ve made it twice now and have decided that both grilled steak and tomatillos are good additions. ...

Would you look at that? We’re live!

Amazing, it took forever for me to stop procrastinating, but here she is: Yet another food blog for the already growing pile of them all over the Internet.  I’m sure you’re asking yourself, “Self, why do I want to be here?  Isn’t there something on TV I could be watching?”  Yes, there probably is something on TV, it’s half of the reason...

Crave – Bloomington
Crave – Bloomington

I say Tomäto
I say Tomäto

I’m always one to help out someone in need and this week I finished a new website for Tomāto Tomäto, which is a small (but growing) local business. How fancy! You can check out my design to the right (or just go to their site).  What do you think?  Not bad, eh?  I also helped them trade in their old calculator and cash register for a Quickbooks POS system by HP. ...

Garden ’09: Week 4
Garden ’09: Week 4

One month down and now the season has warmed up enough for me to finally get the rest of my crops planted and growing. I have nowhere to stand! You’ll probably notice that I once again rearranged everything.  This wasn’t really all my doing.  Jess decided it looked nicer this way and who am I to argue?  I just want them to grow up strong and tasty.  So far it...

Cooking vs. Buying
Cooking vs. Buying

Something I’ve always wondered about was whether all the cooking I was doing was really saving me any money, or if it was just a tastier and more expensive alternative.  Luckily I was recently shown an article where someone put that question to the test, you can read it here:  How cost-effective is it to make homemade pantry staples? For those of you who aren’t...
