And we, unsolicited, narrate the whole charade.
Sep 19, 2014 10:00 am

Le Creuset, the cast-iron cookware royalty that governs all others, just released this stop-motion video for its new Wine & Cheese Collection. For normal folk, it's simply an eye-catching few moments of appetizer porn. For me, however, it's an epic battle to the death, because it's Friday.

Instead, I load my potato skins with creamy homemade spinach feta dip, sprinkle with parmesan and broil 'til crispy on top. That way you can eat more of them.
