5.0 out of 5 stars FASCINATING COOKBOOK, December 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Honestly, this is more of a coffee table book than a cookbook: it's absolutely gorgeous! Fascinatingly informative in terms of how a sugar shack works, and the recipes are beautifully illustrated. The overall look and feel is very modern and graphic: not your typical boring cookbook.

Speaking of recipes, all of which include maple syrup (from tablespoons to liters, depending on the dish), you'll have to keep an open mind regarding what you might consider edible. In addition to standard desserts and roasts and sandwiches, you'll also find some unusual recipes such as squirrel sushi, accompanied by rather graphic photos regarding their preparation and eventual presentation. This book is absolutely not for vegetarians, or the squeamish. If you think meat only comes in styrofoam trays at the supermarket, you may want to stay away from this book.

The overall length of individual recipes may be off-putting, but there's a lot of technique in this cooking. Some recipes are most likely lost on home cooks who may not have access to certain ingredients, or who don't have the space or necessary equipment. But that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable reading, nevertheless. Most recipes, however, are within the realm of the average home cook's capabilities. All are clearly written and illustrated.

In all this is a solid effort, and it's obvious that Mr. Picard has a true passion for meats and, most of all, maple syrup.

Highly recommended whether you plan to cook from it or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUN GAME THAT'LL KEEP YOUR INTEREST, November 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neon Flow: Connect for Free (App)
A fun game that's not quite as easy as it looks. Challenging and definitely not boring. The only drawback is that when you've completed all the levels within one stage (from easy to difficult), the next stage begins on the easy level. That may or may not mess up your mojo, depending on how you're feeling at that particular moment.

In any case, this is absolutely a fun (and pretty!) game for both young and old. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars BORING., November 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Boring. Not sure what all the fuss is about. Loaded it, played it for about 5 minutes, then deleted it. Not worth the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD LITTLE BOOK IF YOU'RE WILLING TO PUT YOUR BIAS ASIDE, July 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a quick read. It's essentially an interview with President Obama speaking not as President, but as an average American citizen, husband and father. I found it interesting.

Btw, because it's a Kindle book, you have to buy it in order to read it (and review it). So, unless your review also states "Amazon Verified Purchase", then please be quiet and don't review something you haven't read.

4.0 out of 5 stars DOES WHAT IT SAYS, BUT DON'T PLAN ON USING IT LATE AT NIGHT, July 30, 2013
I'll keep the review brief: the product does what it says...it transforms frozen bananas and other fruits into a delicious creamy frozen dessert similar to soft-serve ice cream. I'm guessing the level of banana flavor depends on the bananas themselves and whatever other fruits or flavorings you add. But I'm pretty sure this will never get confused for soft-serve vanilla ice cream, despite what others are saying.

It's actually very easy to disassemble and clean. Don't believe the claims that you can simply rinse the washable parts under running water to clean them; you'll need soap and water. Overall, not a big deal.

What is a big deal, however, is the noise this little gadget makes. Holy smokes, is it loud! And I mean **LOUD**! This is definitely not an appliance you'll be using late at night to make yourself a quick snack while others are sleeping...you'll wake up the whole household.

It keeps freezing and shuts itself off. I deleted it and just watch directly from YouTube. Don't waste your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT 2-IN-1 PACKAGE FOR COLLECTORS, March 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fame / Remix (Audio CD)
I'm a collector of all things Gaga so, as a completist, this was a no-brainer. In and of itself, there's nothing terribly special about it --no new tracks, no previously unreleased mixes-- other than you get two CDs for one low price in a slipcase which has its own special cover. Obviously, a great way to reduce inventory and to appeal to those who don't have her previous releases. From my understanding, it's a limited quantity box set, so get it now if it's already on your must-have list.

5.0 out of 5 stars QUICK AND EASY, AND IT WORKS!, January 4, 2013
I've previously used other Command strips for smaller lighter items such as Christmas lights and calendars, and I've always been pleased. I used these heavy-duty Command strips on a couple of heavier pictures and I'm very pleased with this product.

Attaching the strips to the frame couldn't be easier: attach Velcro strips together, stick to the frame, and then stick on the wall. Voila!

Just be sure to properly prep the surface, and be sure it will accept adhesives and is strong enough.

As always, 3M made a great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!, December 22, 2012
Being a massive Lady Gaga fan, friends of mine gave me this for Christmas. When I opened it, I howled and couldn't stop laughing. The front and back covers are funny enough, but there are more hilarious photos that you can't see for the remaining months. All in all, it's very professionally done. Lay Z Gaga herself is rather cute, and there are so many adorable little touches and details to each photo. This is a gift that will indeed be very well appreciated. Literally, "Paws up, Little Monsters!"
