Oh, good! You made it. Chef Dog worked his magic.

Welcome to Here's What's Cooking on April 16, 2021!

Consider this your first installment in a new weekly source of information for your stomach, mind, and more. We'll aggregate stories or content that we think you, our readers, will find topical, helpful, or humorous.

Yes, we'll mainly stick to food. Expect to see pertinent information about recent food recalls, nutritional studies, and even some recipes from sister brands you might want to try. But also expect to see useful content about pets, holidays, kitchen products and projects, and anything else that might enrich your mind or give you the warm and fuzzies. 

And, of course, Chef Dog will be here every Friday, beckoning you with his adorable face and amazing recipes (word on the street is he studied under Remy). So there's that.

Have a great weekend!
