Chef Sleeve

I just saw this Chef Sleeve over on swissmiss and my heart skipped a beat. Just slide it over your iPad and then recycle it after it's gotten messy. Now my iPad won't get so dirty!

$19.99 for 25 sleeves over at Amazon.

All-Pie Thanksgiving: I'm in heaven

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Jade sent me this article over at Serious Eats about the All-Pie Thanksgiving feast they had. On the menu:

Turkey and Cranberry Pie » like a regular turkey pot pie but with a layer of cranberries at the bottom

  • Green Bean Casserole Pie » like the infamous green bean casserole, with the fried shallots worked into the crust
  • Mashed Potato and Gravy Pie » mounds of mashed potatoes with little pools of gravy baked with a crust on top - carb heaven
  • Stuffing Pie » stuffing with sausage
  • and they had their favorite sweet pies shipped from all over the country: Cherry Crumble from Grand Traverse Pie Co. in Michigan, Triple Coconut Pie from Tom Douglas in Seattle, Apple-Rhubarb Pie from Coffee Cup Cafe in Sully, Iowa, and a Pear-Apple with Pecan Streusel from Hoosier Mama (Chicago).

    I didn't know that Ed Levine, the Serious Eats founder, was such a pie fanatic. It makes me like the website that much more. I am tempted to order these pies that he thinks are the best in the country, and to make that turkey pie.

    A Brief History of Food Blogs

    There's an interesting small timeline over at Saveur on the history of food blogs. (I tried to post this the other night but Blogger, ironically, was unavailable).

    What are the food blogs that you read? Ever since scouring the comments section on A Cup of Jo post, I've been reading The Wednesday Chef, 101 Cookbooks, Kitchenist, Orangette and Lottie and Doof. Before I had only been reading Smitten Kitchen and occasionally Chocolate and Zucchini. All of these blogs have such beautiful pictures. The Wednesday Chef inspired me to make bagels a few weeks back!
