The May 2008 issue of Esquire magazine had a great article by Tom Chiarella bout the power of the word “No”. It got me thinking about how I sometimes feel the need to explain myself when all I really need to do is say “No” and shut up.
Check it out & let me know your thoughts.
Most of my friends know one of my passions is cooking. Well, actually it’s food in general. Some people eat to live, but I live to eat. I really enjoy learning new techniques and cooking for friends and family.
One of my favorite kitchen tools is an 8″ chefs knife from a Japanese company called Global. A great knife makes all the difference when it comes to prepping a great meal. The Global line of knives features a one-piece design that not only makes it very to clean, it feels great in the hand after a lot of use.
A sharp knife is a safe knife, so I make sure to use a honing steel before each use as well as take advantage of affordable sharpening services from the local gourmet store at least twice a year.
If you’re in the market for a new set of kitchen knives or you’re looking for a perfect gift for the cook in your family, I really recommend you check out Global knives (available at fine kitchen stores and on-line).
WOW, what a great movie! Juno had me from the very beginning. Great cast, great story & quirky music that was very appealing.
