The Keurig 2.0 Is An Environmental Disaster

(Note - this is the most popular post in the 9 year history of my blog. I received a lot of flack from product reviewers for not appreciating the freebie. So I wrote a follow up post detailing why a product review is not a freebie at all.)...more

The new Vue machine does more than the standard Keurig.  Its touchscreen is easy to use, and...more

My Personal History of Coffee (and a Keurig Review)

I'm not gonna lie. I hope this post attracts lots and lots of attention. I hope beyond hope that somehow, someway, Keurig sees it, and like any other great food blogger, I'll be contacted and offered mucho free product to review for them.
