To be honest with you, I don’t agree with all the hype around pumpkin-flavored drinks/foods/candles/etc. this time of year. It really isn’t my favorite flavor or scent. Pumpkin pie is not my dessert of choice on Thanksgiving, and I am also not a fan of PSLs (Pumpkin Spice Lattes, for those of you who don’t know).
But, I suppose I will let Pumpkin Cheesecake have its national holiday today. For those of you out there who love pumpkin, today will be a yummy day!
November, aka Movember, is quickly approaching, a month where men are encouraged to grow beards and mustaches. But before October is over, let’s celebrate on the opposite spectrum: today is No Beard Day.
The preferred shaving tool is (usually) a razor. But a very long time ago men would just settle for the knife they were carrying in their back pocket to get the job done.
Engraved Kershaw knives are definitely sharp enough to do the trick, so please trust us- take the safe route and use a regular razor!
Okay, so usually mold on food is seen as bad, right? Well, not in the land of cheese it isn’t!
Moldy cheese has a bad reputation among some, and is strongly adored by others. It is actually a key component in making these types of cheeses:
Blue cheeses: Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton, etc
Soft-ripened cheeses: Brie, Camembert, Humboldt Fog, and St. André
Personally, I don’t mind a little bit of mold on my cheese- blue cheese is a great addition to lunch salads, and the super-creamy texture of St. André is to-die-for (trust me). American-Made Cutlery has the best cheese knife out there:
The week is well underway, you’re probably knee-deep in your to-do lists and anticipating the weekend.
But have you given any thought to all of the hard-working farmers and ranchers throughout our country? This week is Farm Safety & Health Week, and those essential workers definitely deserve some recognition and thanks for working in such a dangerous field.
Did you know…
It’s the most dangerous work sector in America (23.4 deaths per 100,000)
Our farmers and ranchers truly are essential workers
2017 Census of Agriculture says there are 3.4 million agricultural producers in America
During the early days of the COVID quarantine, people were at home frantically trying to fill their time with new hobbies. One of the hobbies that quickly emerged was bread-baking. How-to’s on making your own sourdough starter was at the top of many home bakers’ search lists.
But what about sourdough’s flavorful cousin, cinnamon raisin bread? Today is the day to add this recipe to your repertoire: it’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread Day.
A little bit of flour, yeast, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins, and voila- a yummy sweet treat!
Listen, for the most part I prefer to eat low-carb on a daily basis. But when my family finally convinces me to order pizza for dinner, I like the specialty recipes—Mediterranean Chicken with feta and sundried tomatoes, or prosciutto with fig and arugula. Today just isn’t my day- it’s Cheese Pizza Day.
Cheese pizza is just a bit too plain for my liking. But it doesn’t matter: this American-made Cutlery pizza cutter doesn’t care what toppings it’s slicing through, as long as it’s a warm pizza.
