We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Re: Super Bowl...OT

    I would love to see the Seahawks, however, I don't think they are consistent enough and their offense lately hasn't been doing much.

    @Cazzy, how is that for humble ;)
  • Re: New Year's Resolutions

    Funny wife, and I were just talking about that tonight. Ours was a discussion on talking and doing more things together (games, talking) with three small children it can be quite challenging to make time for your spouse.
  • Re: Ancho chili powder

    I couldn't find any so I just took dried ancho chiles found in the Hispanic section and threw them in a coffee grinder
  • Re: Smoked Ketchup

    Eh, in my opinion just get the Amaz-N-smoker, cheap, easy.
  • Re: Tablets

    I have experience on all the platforms (Android, Apple, and Windows) so I will chime in.

     

    here is what I currently have:

    Iphone 5 (me)

    Iphone 4S (wife)

    Nexus 7 (me)

    Lenovo Helix (Work/Me).

    Old Kindle 3G (no longer use)

    Had a Kindle Fire (Key word had)

    - My experience is that in regards to a table it really depends on what you want to do with it, and your personal preferences. Here are my observations below of the different systems (IOS vs Android vs Windows)

     

    1. Apple products are great for people who want ease of use and a "plug and play" type interface. Not much customization at this point. Just install an app, use it, and go.

    2. Android is great if you want to make it look, feel your own: customize your screens, change how the programs load, change which apps you see, etc. Android is great if you like the google platforms (Gmail, YouTube, etc).

    3. Windows is great for doing work. You can't really do "work" on an Apple or an Android Tablet. My helix is what I work on all day long working with documents etc. Windows is way behind in terms of apps and ease of use.

     

    If I had to do it all over again and choose a tablet for all purposes it would be the Nexus 7 version 2 they are releasing at the end of the month. Now adays it really is about the operating system, no matter what hardware you get you will be behind the times within 6 months.
