How to Throw Video to Your Television from Your Smartphone

Samsung Serif Throw Video to your Television

One question I’ve been asked frequently is how to throw video your television from a smartphone or tablet. Do you need special cables or a certain type of television for it to work? Do the videos need to be transferred to a different device, like a computer, before they can be viewed on a big screen? Since it’s a fairly simple process – and something most people will likely want to do at some point – I thought I’d devote a post…

Everything You Need to Know to Properly Cook With a Cast Iron Skillet

So in case you hadn’t heard, I’m currently working with the International Home & Housewares Association on a number of things— I attended the Housewares Show for the first time last year, and this year helped them create a Smart Home Pavilion at the show (which was in Chicago last month).

The Kitchen Gadget That’s Giving My Health a Reboot This Month

Juicero Fresh Pressed Juice at home

Sometimes, a little refresh is necessary… and a company that helps people sip on delicious, nutrient-packed juice pressed from fruits and veggies understands that. Just about a year after it debuted to lots of wellness-tech buzz, Juicero—often referred to as the “Keurig of cold-pressed juice” thanks to its innvoative, single-serving style—is making some changes. The biggest? Many people balked at the initial $700 price tag (for good reason!), so they’re dropping the price to $399. Not exactly a bargain, but at that price it will…

Hello, Seattle!

Smart Kitchen

Seattle is one of my favorite cities and it kills me that I have ZERO time to play while I’m here this week. I’m speaking at a really cool conference called the Smart Kitchen Summit: A gathering of some of the biggest names in both the kitchen and technology industries, all talking about how smart your future refrigerator or blender might be. Because of the work I do both with HGTV and now the International Home & Housewares Show, I’m psyched to…
