Around the Internet Kitchen: Beards!

by Nick

I’ve decided to re-grow my beard this year for a number of reasons. First, with our Italy trip looming I feel it necessary to try to fit in with the local hairy men as much as possible. Second, with our Colorado move also looming, I feel it necessary to look like a lumberjack hippie.

But you should never really need a reason to grow a beard. They are just that cool.

The jury is out on mustaches though. Sometimes those just look creepy.

On a completely different note, while I was in Atlanta last weekend I ate an absurd amount of cookies. This weekend I want to make some of my own to see if I can do better. I’ll let you pick the variety.

And a few links…

Parmesan Cones – Ok. So I’m not positive that I’m technically skilled enough to pull these guys off, but I did make a Parmesan sheet by accident once! These are really inventive though if you can master the Parmesan baking part. (@ Sugar Laws)

Keep the Zest - It always happens. I need zest for a recipe. I zest a lemon. I forget about the lemon. It hardens like a rock on my counter. This is a pretty smart way to make dried zest so you can use it for later! (@ Cupcake Project)

Potato Taquitos – I’m starting to realize that you can put leftover mashed potatoes in almost anything and it will instantly improved. Traditional Tex-Mex foods are a good example. (@ Pinch My Salt)

Daily Candy Corn – Real candy corn! Amazing and delicious looking. Also though, be sure to click on over to Daily Candy where you can vote for Homeroom (the restaurant that Local Lemons is starting) to win a small business award! Cool stuff. (@ Local Lemons)

Have a great weekend everyone!
