Turbo Blender Dessert Revolution!

You bought that high-RPM, high-horsepower blender for more than smoothies. You just didn't know it. We're about to revolutionize the way you make brownies, chocolate pudding, quick breads, pancakes, waffles, even layer cakes--most of the time without dirtying another bowl and sometimes (when it comes to custards and such) without ever turning on the oven or the stove.

Bruce's first knitting class! It's all about a combination technique for purling in Continental knitting that will get you knitting faster than you can believe. Here's a coupon to take the class at less than $15. You can't beat that!  

We're so proud of our pressure-cooker class, one of the most popular classes on craftsy. To get a 50% discount on the cost of the class, click here. Bruce works with a stovetop cooker; Mark, with an electric one. Along the way, they make incredible meals: glorious chicken soup, a crazy-cheesy casserole (in 5 minutes!), an Italian-inspired stew, and even (yes) cheesecake.

Do you know why you're not using your slow cooker enough? Because up to two-thirds of the recipes in any given book aren't written for your model size! But we took care of that. With over 500 recipes, we've written a book that sizes out every one for almost every size of machine. And it's not just math. We've done the testing and worked out the ratios. You gotta see it to believe it.
