Awesome Korean snacks to bring home from your trip! [Vol. 1]

In my opinion, there are two countries that seem to make packaged snack foods that go above and beyond the quality and creativity one would expect– one is Japan, and the other is South Korea. I imagine between these two countries, you will never run out of things to try. I don’t know about you, …

A review on the Breville Scraper Mixer Pro BEM800 

The Breville Scraper Mixer Pro is a real gorgeous piece of machinery even at first glance. It’s like a silver trophy you’d want to display on your kitchen counter and point out to anyone who visits.

Eat or Retreat: Baldo’s Bacon Jam in Original & With A Kick

Bacon Jam. Not a new idea to me by any means, but I have to admit I never really found myself clamouring to try it. I’m not big on bacon you see (yes my kind does exist) but I do enjoy it occasionally. When these cute little bottles of Baldo’s Bacon Jam fell into my …
