Laundry yesterday was profitable... found a $5 bill in the washer~!!!
I ordered and received some of Todd Wilbur's rubs for beef, chicken, and fish and a bonus of "Hell Flakes". Todd is a "food hacker" and dissects famous recipes and publishes them.
Go to his site... click on the tab "What's New" and you will find a list of his 'hacked' recipes. His cookbooks are great too!
