Store shelves can only hold so much. With such a wide variety of tastes out there, it is no wonder that options to fill the larder continue to grow. But a well-stocked pantry only goes so far. Even in a world where Amazon is expanding its grocery delivery service, fluid fanatics may still have a hard time obtaining the flavor of their fantasy. Luckily, for those who crave soda, there are plenty of options to create their own fizzy flavors at home.
Stainless steel just belongs in the kitchen. It resonates in a certain way beyond its mere culinary capabilities. Bang it around enough and you can almost hear echoes of meals past.

Once upon a time, microwave ovens were only a concept. Now, freezers everywhere can be stocked with frozen food as easily as taking a trip to the local market. But it still requires a trip to the store.

But what about freshly-made convenience food?
There exists a gap between microwaveable meals and restaurant delivery. While some might say, "yes, that is called 'cooking,'" others might ask "how many … Read more
Leftovers. There are always leftovers. Obviously, dealing with leftovers is a nice problem to have. With a quick peek into the fridge, yesterday's meal can quickly become today's snack.
