OK, before we get into today's post, I'd just like to take my hat off in solemn remembrance of my point-and-shoot camera that finally died about a week ago. What you're about to see represents one of its last efforts in catching images of edible beauty. Lesson learned: don't keep a digital camera in your shorts pocket while you're digging out the sand on a playground. Sand and electronics don't mix!
So, as those of you who are "Dude, Cook!" regulars already know, I recently moved in to a rather lovely apartment with my girlfriend Kari. One of the selling points of the place was its huge open-concept kitchen.
