Scootland, of course!

Did you know that the leader of the catholic church is always thinking positive? He's a


You ever stand in the kitchen, anxious at what might be coming out of the oven?

You know, no matter how old Samuel Langhorne Clemens got, he was always twainty.

So I've watched a cooking instruction video a couple of days ago, by a canadian chef.

And it turns out that all those cuts you do to veggies? They *all* have special french names. All of those things my mum taught me when I was 8 or so, they all have names that aren't just related to the shape
