Crate & Barrel Recipe Divider
I have few faults. Seriously. But they’re loo-loos. Horrid spelling by the way, is one of them. The rest I’ll leave to your imagination. Well, except one other. The math. I’m not terrible, I actually enjoyed calculus (which I can’t spell – thank god for spellcheck) once I grasped the whole “homework” concept anyway. But these days, I’m a word gal. It’s just who I’d rather be dammit. But combine those few, minuscule, wee faults with the inability to adjust a recipe for single servings (yes, I’m alone – no, it’s not the faults) and things get a little chancy at best. This wheel of fortunate chefs from Crate & Barrel could save me. Find me the love of my life. At least keep twenty more pounds off my *ss, anyway.
It’s a cool conversion wheel – multiply or divide at a glance. Yeah, I know. It’s cheating. So are those rubber pants Oprah wears to make her look thinner. Ya got a problem with it? Right. Anyway, it’s got a handy-dandy magnet to stay on the fridge so it won’t get lost. You spin the laser-etched dial and bam, _ a recipe with the math done, four times the recipe for the dinner part (yeah right, like people come over and eat in my messy house), double for those dessert depression days… this isn’t going well for me today is it?
Must be the weather. In any case, I think it’s a swell invention for the numerically challenged. And it’s under ten bucks. Yeah, you have a calculator on your computer, phone, watch and probably microwave at this point – but this is sooooo much easier. Kinda like those elastic pants, eh?
