Review and Giveaway: Sir Kensington’s Ketchup

SirK_03 (1)

**Giveaway Closed: 4/27/12**

Flying Machines. Horseless Carriages. Time Travel. Some things were thought to be unachievable. Gourmet ketchup may now be crossed off from such lists. So enjoy the fruits of innovation and the nectars of invention. Enjoy Sir Kensington’s and enjoy quality.

Diligently Yours,

Sir Kensington

Mustard has arguably had its “artisanal” moment. There are countless types of pickles. They even make Olive Oil Mayonnaise.

Until recently, though, there was no “step up” from plain old industrialized ketchup, that beloved “vegetable” of so many American cafeterias (unless you count Heinz’s special edition green EZ-squirt, with mystical power to transform …

Review and Giveaway: Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook

lodge-1

**Giveaway Closed: 4/23/2012**

With mangled hand-me-down pots and pans, minimal ingredients (or money to spend on them), and crowded kitchens, sometimes it’s easy to have a college meal go awry.

Review and Giveaway: Batten Island Gourmet Sauce

Batten Island Gourmet

My first taste of Batten Island Gourmet Sauce was pleasantly surprising. I reached for the sauce amid various other boastful hot sauce bottles one night when we were having chili. They say don’t judge a book by its cover, but I admit I may have judged this sauce by its label. On it was an alligator stirring a cauldron over an open fire. It was the only one that didn’t use the devil or the wild west to illustrate its contents.

I dabbed a bit onto my finger first, and after a taste, realized that it’s a heck of …
