    Dunhill Tobaccos Rebranded as Peterson

    Found Some Mason Jars That Claim to Block 99% of UV Light. Worth the Extra Cost?

    Alright, Serious Question of The Day: Do You Toast Your Bagel, Or Not?

    The boiling of bagels is most often done in an alkaline solution (industrially lye, home kitchen most often baking soda), which promotes browning while baking. Same routine with pretzels. Pennsylvania does this best. Toasted always with cream cheese.
