Peanut Butter: Organic vs. Skippy

Posted in Taste Test Thursday by Jessica on November 25, 2008

Nutty Goodness

I love peanut butter. And if I know it’s good for me, even better. However, I’m not one to usually compromise taste over nutritional value. Could my childhood favorite possibly get a beat-down from a good-for-you-because-it’s-organic brand? (more…)

Next day, June 5th, (yes, a Thursday) Fernando made it (more…)

Salt and Vinegar Potato Chip Comparison

I like tangy things. I like tangy things with a light dusting of ascetic acid. And a squeeze of lemon.

What I learned: microwave kettle corn is un-delicious. It’s of no consequence
