DIY Container Garden

In case you didn’t see, Pete and I are having a little spring challenge to grow the best lawn. And while I was at Lowe’s picking up the Sta-Green fertilizer to get this off the ground, I thought it might be cool to do a little container garden instead of watching my grass grow.

Build a DIY Tofu Press

I’m all for saving a few bucks. And anything to get me out in the shop making something. Often, my wife shows me a picture of something and that’s all it takes. I’m on a mission to make it myself.

I’m sure many of you out there … Continue Reading

Besides having awesome nicknames like “Rooster Sauce” and oh dear god help me “Cock Sauce”, Sriracha has awesome flavor too. The flavor is a mix of chilis, sweet, and hot, not red peppery and vinegar-y like TABASCO®. (Oh, and it’s called cock sauce because of the picture on the bottle you perv.) It’s not hot-hot but … Continue Reading

Cans of beans marketed to kids

Brand Synergy + Kids = Vegetables

With four kids, we try to maintain a relationship with each child individually, and since the middle two are twins (and innocently referred to by friends and family as a single entity), this is especially important. We’ve got some kind of cranial queue going on, keeping track of which one went with who, and where. … Continue Reading
