According to the archives, I have not done a “crushing” edition since July 27th, which doesn’t seem completely possible, but it could be. I am totally off a publishing schedule. Trying to get back on track.
I have worked in commercial kitchens since I was 16 years old and have seen it all. Really…ask me about the knife throwing chef someday…or the starfish that lived on the bottom of a box of fish…
Anyway, with the rise of social media, there is a whole new world to be discovered for fans of just how funny kitchens can be. Labeling in storage is a non negotiable for food safety. Evidently, however, spelling is negotiable. I give you KitchenTape on Instagram.

It’s like Manuel from Fawlty Towers meets Oscar Wilde in a kitchen. Some of them are just sounded out for spelling (“Bowl in Nas for Bolognese) and some of them are really funny (“Die Kahn” for daikon, a type of radish). I haven’t seen a new post in a while so I hope whoever is behind Kitchentape continues.
Because kitchen tape doesn’t have spell check. 🍴🍔🍩😆 #kitchentape
Once upon a time in a land called California, I fell in love with an imported glass jar of Italian yogurt at my bff’s house. My love affair was short lived because the Italian beauty lived only on the store shelves in California and even then was homesick and eventually couldn’t even be found there. I whined and fretted for years until what to my wondering eyes should appear on the the crowded yogurt shelves of my local supermarche but OUI, a new yogurt by the venerable French yogurt manufacturer Yoplait.
And I can honestly say, it is superb!
And it comes in cute little glass pots that can be recycled for so many things like holding votive lights or planting little succulents or hold makeup brushes or posies from the garden. The craft world is spinning on it’s axis..
If you like Greek style, this is not it. But it is creamy and full of flavor and not too sweet, just a hint of fruit at the bottom. The absolute hands down best flavor is coconut which tastes more like a panna cotta than mass retailer yogurt, but don’t question it. Given the absence of it on store shelves in last couple of weeks at Target and more, I am hoping they up the production because I am not the only one buying it. Eight flavors including plain, vanilla, coconut, lemon, peach, blueberry, strawberry and black cherry. I would humbly petition for apricot and perhaps a mango or chocolate. Thanks Yoplait!
