The World Trade Organization has declared that the the USDA’s COOL (Country Of Origin Label) mandates on muscled meat products violate international trade policies.

When we relaunched the site in early March, we had lots of comments, inquires, and feedback. One of our favorite reader comments said, “Great idea for a website!

If you’ve never used a Blendtec blender before, I suggest you try it. After receiving a Blendtec blender to review in March, I’ve used it almost every day since. I’ve used it to make smoothies, sauces, hummus, nut butters, and cocktails. Blendtec is famous for their “Will It Blend?” series on YouTube which you MUST check out if you haven’t already seen it. The blender, which is made in Orem, Utah, has so many features making it my go-to, most frequently used kitchen appliance. Every time someone asks me about my Blendtec, I’m brimming with enthusiasm. What can I say? It’s just one of those things I cannot live without!
