Why Handmade Is Better

July 29, 2019

While there are exceptions to every rule, overall handmade is a much better alternative when you're looking for quality-made items. Here are just some of the reasons why:

1) The artisan(s) making the item personally cares about what they're making and will take the time to make sure it's made properly.

2) The artisan making the item also cares about their customers and wants them to feel that personal connection.

3) Buying handmade helps the community. According to Mental Floss, studies have shown that locally owned independent businesses - many of which sell wares produced by hand - return a higher percentage of their revenue to their communities than chains.

4) Shopping handmade supports small business and the people who have a passion for what they're doing, which comes around full-circle to being able to buy quality-made items.

Garlic Love

Garlic Cloves

Happy National Garlic Day!

I have a cooking motto:

    "There is no such thing as too much garlic."

I love garlic. I love the flavor and the aroma.

I remember watching a cooking show and the recipe called for 30 cloves of garlic (yes, 30!). It sounded wonderful.

My mother-in-law was making a dish recently and didn't realize that the little shaker filter wasn't on her jar of garlic powder and accidentally dumped a bunch into her dish. She said it turned out being the best it's e...
