Picnicking this Labor Day weekend? Making up a batch of hot dogs or weenies? This creatively-shaped weenie roaster is one hands-off way to grill your sausages. It's just one of many from RoastMyWeenie.com, and not all are, um, so family-friendly.
I was recently given one of these Toastabags to try out. It sat in a corner of my office for weeks. To say I was skeptical of this as-seen-on-TV product would be understating it. A bag for the toaster? Please. Well, I have to eat my words. No — actually, I ate a marmalade-and-mozzarella sandwich, fresh from the toaster, and it was amazingly easy.
Q: Last summer, we bought the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment, with hopes to be churning out gourmet homemade ice creams like nobody's business. Thing is — I've tried it a number of times with absolutely NO success. Last night, I gave it one last try on my own (following The Kitchn's recipe for vanilla ice cream), and after 90 minutes, it hadn't even started to thicken or become ice cream-like.
Is there a trick to this attachment that I'm maybe missing? I have followed the directions, but am wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences?
It's probably no secret by now that we're sort of nerds around these parts. We all have our different genres that we geek out over, but in my own personal household it usually comes down to 3 categories: comics, movies and designer toys. All of those are embodied in this weeks Comic Con in San Diego and there's a few ways to bring that spirit into your kitchen — even if it's a little silly!
