I am not a gadget pimp, but there are a few little items in my kitchen that make my life easier. This is part two in my series of "Go Gadget Go" posts. I may occasionally write about which gadgets got-to-go as-in, go in the trash, but for now I will be a lover, not a fighter. Ikea Knife Magnet with Silicone Tongs. I love myself a knife magnet. I especially fancy the $14.99 knife magnet from IKEA. I have installed 3 in my lifetime. I am not sure when the world assumed that a big wooden block [...]
Time flies when you're goin slow. It is already Friday and no new post from me! I am on the Big Island of Hawaii relaxing and getting in touch with my inner Aloha.

Thoughts of this pizza wake me up at night. Kinda sad. I am blessed with a neighbor and amazing friend who is also an incredible cook.
