Thank Mr. Naxon for slow-cooked perfection.Slow-cookers are convenient and produce consistently delicious results - it's no wonder they found their way into millions of American kitchens. But have you ever wondered how the slow-cooker came to be?

Tamara Kaslovski Nachumsohn grew up in Lithuania. Unable to work in the kitchen during the Sabbath, the family had a clever method for ensuring a hot Saturday dinner. Tamara's mother would have her drop-off uncooked cholent, a hearty stew, at the bakery on Friday afternoons. The oven wasn't used over the Sabbath, but it was hot enough to cook the meal while it slowly cooled. At sundown on Saturday, Tamara would return and pick up the warm stew.
Irving had a knack for engineering, helping to design an oxygen flow indicator for aircraft during World War II. He set about

Healthy and delicious! There's nothing better than a perfectly cooked ear of corn slathered with salty butter at a summertime party. My family waits all year long for corn season and when it hits we have corn on the cob at least once a week. My favorite way to cook corn is to grill it. Grilling it in the husk steams the corn and creates a delicious bite that bursts with sweetness. Top that warm ear of corn with a salty bright herb butter such as cilantro lime and you have the ultimate easy summer cookout side dish!Read More »from Kernel of Truth: Grilled Corn is the Perfect Summer Side

Delish!!I love Texas Sheet Cake, and not just because I live in Texas. I love that it serves a big crowd, and I really love that you don't have to wait for the cake to cool to frost it. I can't be the only person who feels too busy to wait for my cake to cool before I frost and run out the door to whatever event I'm bringing dessert to. If you're like me, this is your cake! Also, while a recipe that includes plenty of sugar and butter is never going to be considered health food, this version does use applesauce or yogurt instead of the shortening or extra stick of butter that many recipes include. Pat yourself on the back!Read More »from Don't Mess with Dessert! Texas Sheet Cake Never Disappoints

Show your colors.Here's an easy craft for the kids: fashionable flag cuffs. While I give a general design below, you can encourage kids to design their cuffs however they like using red, white and blue felt. And kids don't have to reserve these for patriotic holidays. They'd also make great super hero accessories, don't you think?Read More »from Stars and Stripes for Everyone! Easy Red, White, and Blue Cuffs for Flag Day

1. Cut a strip of white felt for the base of the cuff. You can make it as wide or thin as you'd like. Just make sure it's longer than the wrist to accommodate a button. Then cut two to three narrow strips of red for stripes, a small square out of the blue felt and a small square out of the white.
2. Glue red strips to the cuff base. I've found hot glue works best, but fabric glue will work too.
3. Glue the blue square to the center of the cuff. Then, cut a star out of the small white square of felt.
The perfect summer snack!When it comes to snack time, I always have to put my thinking cap on and present snacks in different forms to entice my 4-year-old. One of the most popular presentations is serving food on sticks. Skewers and toothpicks with the pointy tips cut off are a great way to get the kids excited about a snack. This time, I decided to surprise my son by making Mickey peanut butter pinwheel skewers with appetizer picks and adhesive-backed dimensional stickers. The snack was such a hit that I will definitely be using this presentation to serve fruit and vegetable snacks.Read More »from Stick with What Works: PB&J on Skewers

I love fun cupcakes, but I am the world's worst artist, which means if I have to free-hand something, it's likely to turn out looking like my toddler did it. If I have a stencil, though, I'm in business! This freezer paper stencil technique is really easy. Just draw or trace the design you want, cut it out and then use it on one cupcake after another. Ta-da! P.S. Freezer paper is usually located at the grocery store in the same section as aluminum foil or plastic wrap. I bought an enormous roll of it (150 feet) for $3. I'll probably be using it until I have grandchildren.Read More »from A-mousingly Adorable Mickey Beach Cupcakes
