The Tangle Tamer!!

Remington Tangle Tamer

Look at that beast of a comb!  When I ran across it on Amazon, I thought "Wow, that's a lot of 5 star reviews! And nothing less than 5 stars at that.  It might be worth checking out."  I ordered it and it came in a nice tidy package that had to be destroyed with scissors to get open.  I plugged in and we gave it a whirl.  It was amazing, but I didn't want to speak too soon, what if it was a temporary fluke.  Well, it's been a few weeks now and it's still amazing.  I love it, Hannah loves it, Joel thinks it's pretty neat and the cat, well, she could care less.
The only times we've had an "OW!" are when we've accidentally caught her ear (she did that to me and let me tell you it really hurts) and when I stumbled across a piece of gum in her hair.  We are still using detangler, because Hannah has what I think they call fly away hair.  It's thick, but it will be just as knotty at the end of the day as it is at the beginning.  I did take some pictures for you.  They aren't the best, I took them on the fly one morning, because I knew that I wanted to share with you all, but kept seeing the opportunity to snag a picture run by me.  So here they are...

This is the before.  I swear to you, the girl woke up and this is what it looked like, just from sleeping on it.  I didn't do anything to it prior to this picture.  You can see the amount of work ahead of us.

And the after!  It used to take us about ten to fifteen minutes with whining the entire time. Now it's under five and no whining unless there is an ear incident.  Which there did happen to be this morning and why I didn't get a picture of Hannah's beautiful face.


Go and get your own Tangle Tamer!  It may very well be the best purchase you make all year!

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
