Chefspecs: See Clearly In The Kitchen

Chefspecs Reading Glasses With Case

Clearly, it is important to see be able to see clearly in the kitchen when handling hot objects and sharp implements. For a start there are the Chefspecs Reading Glasses With Case. The cheaters come in a range of magnification, from +1.25 to +3.00, and make it easy to read recipes, deal with gadgets or just look stylish while cooking.

The reading glasses come with a magnetic case that can be attached to the fridge for easy access. That little spoon logo on the side of the glasses is pretty sharp too. And speaking of clearly, the glasses come with an anti-fog cleaning gel and cloth.

Twinkies Tell The Truth

Twinkies: "The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever"

Twinkies are back and this time they mean it. It is being reported that the iconic snack cake will have a shelf life of 45 days. Hostess Brands recently went through reorganization and it appeared that the fabled snack was in trouble. But you can’t keep a good sponge cake down. Or let it expire.

Somehow, without changing much (or any) of the 37 ingredients that go into a Twinkie, the shelf life has been increased from 26 days to 45 days. The new Hostess company says they still won’t last forever, but… yeah, right.

To participate in “The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever” just visit your local grocery store. Twinkies are set to reappear on July 15th.

Happy Fourth Of July!

2008 Topps Allen and Ginter # 109 Joey Chestnut (Hot Dog Eating Champion) MLB Baseball Card

What better way to celebrate America than with a 2008 Topps Allen and Ginter # 109 Joey Chestnut (Hot Dog Eating Champion) MLB Baseball Card? Keep it in your wallet so you remember how many hot dogs you’ll have to eat to break the record!

Hint (from Wikipedia):

In the 2012 contest, Chestnut won his sixth consecutive title by consuming a record-tying 68 hot dogs and buns (HDBs) in ten minutes.

Yikes. Hmm, maybe you’re better off not trying to pretend like your backyard BBQ is the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. In fact, I’m sure you are!

Rice Cube Squared

Rice Cube

Rice goes with everything. The plain white grain (okay, okay; brown too) can be used in dishes originating from anywhere across the globe. But that doesn’t mean it has to stick to being mounded together into a hemisphere. In fact, for those seeking to mold rice into cubes, there exists at least two choices.

Above, the Rice Cube is a fun geometrical puzzle that comes together to make rice cubes. Below, the Kotobuki Mini Cube Rice Mold gives rice fans a similar option.

Either way, use the rice molds to transform rice into whimsical cubes that can be used for sushi or whatever else one can dream up. Or stack up as the case may be.

Caffeinated Owls

Caffeinated Owls Art Print by Dave Mottram

Who needs a cup of coffee? The answer apparently, is owls. No wonder they stay up so late! Especially that double espresso caffeinated owl up there. He looks like he needs a biscotti to peck at.
