Wonder Box - Cooks like a crock-pot without electricity. DIY instructions on how to make one. I don't own one, but have used one made by a friend, and it was amazing!

'Epicurean' is the cutting board I've had for over 5 years. They make boards from recycled paper products, and they are magnificent! I used to use a bamboo board, but prefer this one because it does NOT absorb food odors and it is dishwasher safe. I have a smallish size, and it has served me very well! Time to get a larger board, very soon!
