Wallpaper is Back…but Paintable

House Beautiful weitznerlimited.com

Wallpaper slowly has been coming back.  It started with accent wall ideas and now I recently came across this article in the March 2013 House Beautiful.  I think this concept is an interesting modern spin on the traditional idea of wallpaper.  It creates texture and warmth, but it also has the option to change the room just as you can with paint!

This is awesome!  Turn your lights, TV, or any other device right from your phone via wifi!  This is the modern version of the light timer we all used when we went on vacation.  Perfect if you have a pet at  home or you want the outside light on before it gets dark.

Biena: Roasted Chicpea Snacks

Biena: Healthy Chickpea Snacks


Poorvi Patodia is the founder of Biena Foods.  The roasted chickpea snacks come in 5 different flavors.  It took around 500 batches of testing different variations of recipes until it was just right!  I haven’t tried them myself.  I just ordered the sampler pack, and I can’t wait to see how good they are!  I saw a clip of an interview that said she got her start at a Hingham, MA Whole Foods.  I’m always up for supporting local business owners.

Crunch Burger by Chef Bobby Flay

The Crunch Burger by Bobby Flay

I like recipes generally with a lot of vegetables but I saw this on Jimmy Kimmel and it does look delicious!  He added water to the pan and covered it to melt the cheese.  Nice little trick.  He also trademarked the term the “crunch burger”.

Enjoy on a day that you want a yummy greasy burger that includes potato chips!  For the recipe click on the image above.
