We measure many things in the kitchen — we use scales, measuring cups, measuring spoons, liquid measuring cups, and timers all to our advantage — but one tool of measure is often overlooked in building a better tool jar: the ruler.

Now, a ruler isn’t meant to ensure that all your potato cubes are the exact same dimensions (although, good for you if you do try that); instead a nice, straight edge in the kitchen will help you make better sauces and make more consistently shaped, baked, and sliced baked goods.

I’ve eaten lunch at my desk for as long as I can remember. It’s not that I’m too busy to step away; I’ve simply fallen deep into the habit of eating as I work or scroll through the news online.

I know it’s not the best way to eat — I’m not getting much work done, nor am I enjoying my food as much as I could — but I’ve never been able to break the cycle. Until now. Maybe.

If you train for any length of time, chances are high that at some point, you will find yourself stuck. You might try increasing weight, increasing reps, working harder, and resting more. As you try various things and the inevitable frustration sets in, you find yourself wondering if there are any mental tricks to help you break through your plateau.

How spicy do you like your spicy? Do you collect hot sauce like other people collect Mason jars? Do you live to feel the burn? Well, I have a new challenge for you: Paqui chips have created the world’s deadliest tortilla chip. The chip gets its heat from the Carolina Reaper pepper, which is often thought of as the hottest pepper in the world.

success_story_contest

Calling all readers! Do you have a Primal Blueprint Success Story you’d like to share? Then I want to hear from you (and so do the rest of us)! I’ll even give you the shot at winning an awesome prize package.

Write it your story and include a photo. Including both pre-Primal and post-Primal pics is best, but not required. Don’t worry if you’re not sporting a six-pack. This isn’t a “who’s the most ripped” contest. Whether you’ve lost 100 pounds over two years of Primal living or you’ve simply managed to kick that Diet Coke habit, just tell me what going Primal has done for you. I’m looking for interesting and personal stories of all varieties.

You can include details about your health history, how you found MDA and The Primal Blueprint, what has worked and what hasn’t, what differences you’ve seen in how you look and feel, and anything else you think readers might be able to learn from (that you’re open to sharing) are welcome. It doesn’t have to be a thousand word diatribe, but more than a couple paragraphs is best. Feel free to be creative with your story format, too. Remember, good stories usually have a beginning, a middle, and an end. And of course, honesty is king.

If you’ve ever thought about sending in your story but haven’t gotten around to it, then there is no better time than now!

The entire PRIMAL KITCHEN™ product line! You’ll get to much on and cook with every product currently available from PRIMAL KITCHEN™.

I have been using the same single cutting board for several years. It is bamboo, maybe? I think it is bamboo. I am happy with it, but are my knives happy with it? Is it the best kind of cutting board? Am I secretly doing something that is ruining them in some way I do not yet know of but will live to regret?

If you have these questions, too, read on to find out what your knives want you to know about cutting boards.

20 Cooks, 20 Knives: This month, we’re taking a close look at a chef’s most important tool: her knife. We asked 20 cooks, amateurs and professionals, to share their favorite knives and the stories behind them. While chef’s knives are are featured prominently, no two are exactly alike, and there are also a few surprises.

Named one of Forbes 30 Under 30, Natasha’s architecture-meets-gourmet-ice-cream-sandwiches concept, Coolhaus, has become a hit phenomenon. Together with her partner, Freya, she isn’t afraid to concoct savory flavors such as Fried Chicken and Waffles, Fast Food, and even Peking Duck.
