  1. Those steak recipes are all too complicated imo. Season it and throw it in a cast iron skillet just at the temperature where the butter or olive oil would burn if it were not sharing space with a steak and sear it a few minutes on both sides. Rest 5-10 minutes out.
    If you’re nervous about the doneness, use a thermometer.
    If you’re super worried about doneness, sous vide to the exact temperature and then sear it in the fry pan or with a blow torch after.

  2. Loved Baguette Lamp! There’s no limit to people’s creativity!
    Thank you for this dose if inspiration, Tina!

  3. I was entranced by the baguette lamp! I splurged and bought the croissant lamp as a nightlight for my daughter. I love the creativity AND the utility!

  4. Very well said. Thanks for sharing.
