Originally published June 17, 2012; Reformatted Two great ideas for when the lights go out, or when you just want to play like a Redneck. The first, Cooler Corn, comes via an email from Mr. Big Food’s Dad who I think gets more emails each day than Mr. Big Food (who gets a lot). The

Three (3) crockpots in one! Unfortunately, it’s not ours. (But it’s cool!) It belongs to Rhonda who blogs at Make, Do, and Mend. She’s got the scoop on where you can find this 3′ long crockpot contraption. And she’s got a question: Why do people think homemakers must be bored?There always seems to be plenty
