Cube Tube is a vertical ice cube tray that prevents you from spilling water while transporting a full tray of water to your freezer. It also provides the user better control while dropping the ice into a drink. Just fill the tube, insert the divider, seal the tube and freeze. Once it’s frozen, hit the flexible bottom against a hard surface. This will loosen up the ice to be pulled out (and probably relieve some stress). The tube is designed with a slight draft to make pulling the ice out easier.

Learn Three Techniques for Tenderizing Meat
Marc Matsumoto has a great post on tenderizing meats:
Whether it’s a tender juicy steak or a fall-off-the-bone tender rib, tenderness is often equated with the quality of the meat. But the texture of meat has a lot less to do with quality, and a lot more to do with how the meat is treated both before and after hitting the grill. To better understand this, let’s look at the three main methods of tenderizing meat: mechanical, thermal, and enzymatic.

Handcrafted Marshmallows from Wondermade
Wondermade marhmallows are made with 100% cane sugar. Cane sugar is sucrose; corn syrups are a mix of glucose and fructose in varying percentages. That means they bind to ingredients differently, they cook differently and your body processes them differently. Each marshmallow is 1″x1″, with 16 in every 4.5″x4.5″ box. There are 6 signature flavors: Gingerbread, Bourbon, Guinness, Pumpkin Pie, S’Mores and Peppermint.
The Physics of Coffee & Cream
Every Seattleite has been in this situation: On a cold, rainy December morning, you get your coffee to go from Vivace, Stumptown, or Starbucks, and then watch out the window for your bus. The bus, you know, might be a minute or two late, and you’ll have to wait a few minutes. You want to keep your coffee as hot as possible during your wait so that it’s still piping hot when you step out the door. You grab a lid for your cup, pausing at the cream. Should you add the cream to your coffee now, or will that only cool your drink faster? Maybe you should add your cream at the last minute, before you dash out the door.
The basic physics of heat provides the answer: you should go ahead and add the cream to your coffee now. Coffee with cream cools about 20% slower than black coffee, for three reasons:
Hearts are more fun than circles. Friends will love your drink creations when you serve them with the coolest party straws in the world. Great for milkshakes & smoothies, cocktails & sodas… and of course, perfect for weddings & valentines.
