Chefn’ Sweet Spot Ice Cream Slab Homemade ice cream is a wonderful treat, however you really need to have an ice cream maker in your kitchen arsenal in order to get the best results when you make it. There are some outstanding no-churn ice cream recipes out there, but as good as those recipes are, your ice cream options are much more limited when you don’t have an ice cream maker. There are many affordable ice cream machines out there, and there are also a number of ice cream machine alternatives that you can choose from if those traditional models don’t fit in your kitchen. One example of a non-traditional ice cream maker is the Chefn’ Sweet Spot. The slab is a very large, shallow bowl that allows you to make up to six servings of ice cream very quickly and easily, and in a very unusual manner.
The Unforgivable Pinkness of Disney Princesses It happens every time a new Disney princess movie emerges. An avalanche of articles, reviews and critiques, saying that finally we have a princess worth going to see. Finally we have a Disney character that can be a good role model for girls, because this princess isn’t entirely focussed on romance, this princess has a story and ambitions outside of her prince, this princess actually has character and strength of her own. Unlike all the princesses who came before her, she’s a Strong Female Character and worthy of our time. What utter nonsense.

An Open Door: Love At First Sight in Disney’s Frozen Last Wednesday, I wrote about Disney’s Frozen and how problematic it is to hold it up as a “feminist” Disney princess movie in contrast to all that has come before, and I stand by that post 100%. But Frozen is Disney’s 53rd animated movie since 1937, and it’s natural that, over those almost 80 years, these movies would change in sentiment and (hopefully) become more in line with modern ideals. So while the older movies from the 30s, 50s and even 80s and early 90s have played many fairy tale tropes straight, it’s definitely time to explore those (often sexist) tropes in a more critical manner. Most recent Disney movies have abandoned the “love at first sight” trope altogether by building the romantic relationship throughout the movie, and even having it develop from something more antagonistic or perfunctory (as in Tangled). And it’s not just a case of “he’s handsome and nice to me.” Hans goes out of his way to manipulate her.
