Brooklynese Kitchenware

Before the hipster invasion, Brooklynites were known for having a way of speaking that wasn't characterized by aloofness and cryptic irony. Those from Manhattan's little brother were known for a bit of an accent that seemingly had a hard time ending any word with an "r." As an ode to those fine folks, there are these ... continue reading

Star Spangled Spatula

You wouldn't spend $65 on this patriotic spatula?? What, do you hate America or something? Okay, frankly, we aren't looking to drop that kind of cash on a spatula either, but we have to admit that the design by Jacob Riley-Wasserman is pretty sweet. Made from stainless steel and American Walnut, the Star Spangled Spatula ... continue reading

Special Sh*t Seasoning

Bull Shit. Special Shit. Aw Shit. Good Shit. Hot Shit. Dip Shit. BBQ Shit? Until that last one, we could have just as easily been talking about terms of endearment thrown around during a football game as actual, honest to goodness food seasoning. Seriously. Each of those is a seasoning or a mix about/for (in the original ... continue reading

Alps Bread Knives

Have you ever tried to cut a loaf of bread with something other than a bread knife? It's a freaking disaster. Even if you've sharpened your chef's knife, it's still like pushing down on a sponge; which is why we just eat whole loaves. If you're going to have a hard time cutting that mound of gluten anyway, might as ... continue reading

Spice Holder With Lid

Right now, we've got a wooden salt keeper on our kitchen counter and the rest of our spices on a rotating platform in a cabinet. And, while we use salt more than any other seasoning, it's annoying to always be digging out the smoked paprika and garlic powder. This Spice Holder from William Sonoma is a rustically masculine ... continue reading

Single Malt Chocolate Lollipops

We've been eating lollipops for far too long without getting hammered off them. Okay, well maybe not hammered, but our Tootsie Pops do have a severe lack of booze in them and that Dum Dum's mystery flavor has yet be "Tequila." Besides the dark chocolate in these Single Malt Chocolate Lollipops, they sport a solid kick ... continue reading

Brooklyn Butcher Blocks Brickwork Board

Even though this cutting board looks like it was ripped from the siding of a brick building in Brooklyn, it happens to be a serious piece of kitchen equipment (hence the price tag). It's designed to minimize the amount of beef juice that accumulates in the knife marks you leave by having the grain run toward you. This ... continue reading

Empire Bacon Mayonnaise

Sure you could just have someone cut you open and slather your insides with a thin lard coating, but what's the fun in that? If we're going to be going heavy on some fat, we're going to enjoy the hell out of it. Namely, we'll be slathering a healthy serving of Empire Mayonnaise Company's Bacon Mayonnaise on our next ... continue reading

Instant Regret Peanut Butter

We'll say this right now, we've never ate peanut butter and regretted it. We've always been pleased with our decision to consume some. That said, Instant Regret Offensively Hot Peanut Butter is a whole other ballgame. Clocking in at a tongue-burning 12 million Scoville heat units, Instant Regret Peanut Butter is unlike ... continue reading

Bourbon & Guinness Marshmallows

You could inject any food with liquor and we'd immediately want to eat it. Anchovy-flavored Brussels sprouts? Think I just puked a little. Anchovy-flavored Brussels sprouts with a whiskey glaze? Where's my plate? It just gets better when the food is already delicious on its own. These marshmallows are our new s'mores ... continue reading

Blueprint Placemats

We think most placemats are dumb. They're fine for fancy restaurants during those dinners you treat yourself (and someone special) to once or twice a year, but we generally don't use them at home because we: don't have McDonald's style trays we hate washing, have a quality table that can just be wiped off or we're ... continue reading

Cracker Jack’D

Do you long for the days when your old man would take you out to the ballgame and buy you some peanuts and Cracker Jacks? You'd tear into that sweet little box to get at the candy coated corn, but everyone knew what you were actually interested in--the toy. Well, if that's what you still want (hey, we can all be kids ... continue reading

Jojo’s Sriracha

For as much as we like to joke about hipsters and laugh at Portlandia, we do agree that the whole slow food movement is a good thing. You know what's also a good thing? Sriracha. So clearly, Jojo's Sriracha, which is made with locally sourced chili peppers and a whole lot of giving a fuck (Jolene from Jojo's words ... continue reading
