I'm having an affair with PAM.

Please, don't tell anyone, but I can't stay away from Pam.

Or her friends.

I really meant to stay loyal to the olive oil pump.

Less waste. Less propellant. Less to add to the grocery list.

But then there's Pam. Looking at me. Whispering "I'm so convenient. I work so well. Think of eggs. Think of cakes." And I find myself reaching for her. Or one of her friends that's on sale.

And the olive oil pump shuffles back to her spot in the back of the cupboard, waiting for another day, another chance to prove herself. "Later," I assure her. "When we're having sweet potato chips. You're really good at sweet potato chips."


  1. keri - it's steph from mops. i saw your blog link from fb. i love it and love hearing about your kitchen experiences! Here's a link to the pressure cooker I was talking about the other night -
    I got it for $65 at costco! I'm still learning all of it's uses, but I think I may just say goodbye to my slow cooker soon. If you're looking for a rice cooker for only occasional use, you might consider getting this since a good multiuse rice cooker can cost upwards of $100 as well (japanese brands, of course). If you're still looking for a rice cooker, here is one of our family favorites (both sides of the family - chinese and korean, have it.. I have a Tiger though...)
    Happy Cooking!

  2. Thanks for the recommendations! I'll check them out. What sounds the most fun, though, is a little hands-on tutorial...
