If you live to travel and love to walk the streets of the places you go especially in cities with cobblestone thoroughfares, you need a great shoe.  I recommend Adidas Shadow for comfort, traction and support.  They are lightweight with a hard sole and come in monochromatic colors.  I picked grey for my most recent pair and can’t wait to test them out on the hills of Scotland in September. “Lang may yer lum reek” with these on your feet.

RM stumbled on the best knife sharpener ever and for less than six bucks.  It’s called the Kitchen IQ 50009 Knife Sharpener and it really works. Goofy name but I like the product. So many sharpeners claim they do the job but leave us dissatisfied.   RM is picky about a sharp knife in the kitchen and this little tool keeps all our knives on point for chopping, dicing and mincing and its compact for storage too. Because as the saying goes, ” you gotta stay sharp when you’re cutting through the bullshit.”

Looking for the perfect dipping sauce for just about any morsel especially with snacks likes tempura and spring rolls?  Try the Thai Chili Roasted Garlic Dipping Sauce by Wild Thymes. Just the right balance of heat to sweet.  Everything is better with a tasty little sauce.

We have family members who can’t tolerate dairy in any form including chocolate.  So, so sad but thankfully there are many options now. Some better than others.  We found Enjoy Life chocolate and used it in several baking recipes with success.  It tastes great too.  Chocolate chunks is my favorite for using in brownies.  I used it in my recipe for Best Brownie, hands down

I am an avid gardener but I live in a little, urban cottage in Fort Worth with a small backyard for growing vegetables and herbs.  I use lots of containers to stretch my gardening space and love the Grow Bags for growing peppers, beans, tomatoes and eggplant.  The bags come in a variety of sizes and are designed with handles for moving around the garden if you are looking for that perfect spot.  I’ve used mine for two summer seasons and they are holding up great.  I like the black color best because they don’t show any stains from the dirt.
