Ep 124: Crackers of Consequence

It’s the second week of Made it Myself Month and the dynamic duo are up with a review of the Life Changing Crackers … did they live up to their name? (Well, Stefin did learn a new vocabulary word, and Andrea may have developed synesthesia!) Then it’s on to a slightly less healthy, but perhaps no less crucially important homemade treat — Stefin’s 1980s PixiFood — PopTarts! Will they be better than the iconic original? Finally, whether you want to perfect your pie crust or start your...

Ep 119: History and Mystery
