MAKE HOMEMADE SCIENCE TOYS AND PROJECTS Blandito Is A Giant Pillow/Mattress Burrito We can't tell how comfortable (or uncomfortable) the Blandito is, but I have to say: it looks awesome.

Created by Oradaria Design, it's billed as a "transformable pad for lazy living." The Blandito starts out life as a round and cushy mat that lies flat on the floor. Unfortunately, the Blandito is only listed as "coming soon" on the Italian outfit's website, without much details and specifics. Check It Out

I Believe I Can Fry: Reconditioning & Re-Seasoning Cast Iron Cookware I LOVE cooking with cast iron. As more reports come out about the dangers of nonstick pans and the toxins that they can emit, I appreciate my cast iron cookware more and more. They distribute heat evenly, can stand up to almost any abuse, and will last for many years - some of the pieces in my collection are around 100 years old! Most people I know think that cast iron skillets are solely for making cornbread or for frying. I seek out older cast iron pieces, made back when the pieces were machine polished to a smooth glassy surface after casting. Greg has a great restoration tutorial over on his Black Iron Blog.

All that is needed for the reconditioning process are a few inexpensive, readily available items: Heavy-duty Oven Cleaner (I used Easy-Off)* Steel Wool (#0000)*EDIT 05/2012* This post has become VERY popular recently thanks to Pinterest! This is where patience comes in.
