Review: ‘OMG Pancakes!’ by Jim Belosic

Ask any typical father the kind of breakfast he enjoys cooking for his kids and pancakes will come up in the conversation. Let’s be honest – pancakes are awesome. First of all, they’re cake that you eat for breakfast. And actually, there’s no second point – they’re cake you eat for breakfast!

But most people make the same old blah pancakes for their kids – big circles, smaller circles. And if you really want to look like a hero in front of your kids, you make the old Mickey Mouse pancake – one big circle, two smaller circle ears. WTG, bro. Well, Jim Belosic’s got you beat. I mean, unless you’ve made The Golden Gate Bridge out of pancake, then maybe you’re on his level. Oh, you haven’t? Then shut your hole and read the review of his new book, “OMG Pancakes!”

Review & Giveaway! Easy Lunchboxes

Review & Giveaway! Easy Lunchboxes

When I first started talking to Kelly Lester about her “Easy Lunchboxes,” she suggested that I use catch-phrases like:

  • “eco-friendly!”
  • “waste-free lunches!”
  • “bento lunch box!”

But I insisted that since this is a father’s website, that, no offense to the charm of her products, dudes like me think in a different way. That’s why I’m proud to announce these features of Easy Lunchboxes:

  • Fits a full pork chop!
  • Strong plastic!
  • Fits a full pork chop!

No matter whether you think like me or Kelly, however, I’ve got to say, these Easy Lunchboxes are big winners. Really. Everyone – man, woman and child – have something to use these things for. And despite some very minor details, these containers are one of the more useful tupperware-type things you can use for a toddler’s food and snacks. Okay, that’s over-stating it a little, but Easy Lunchboxes are awesome. And I love them.

Also – 8BitDad and Kelly Lester also wants to GIVE YOU a set for free! Find out how at the end of the review!

Review: ‘Man With a Pan’ by John Donohue

Review: ‘Man With a Pan’ by John Donohue

Back in February, we shoveled you over to a Time interview with John Donohue, the “Stay at Stove Dad.” Donohue’s back with a book out that’s a great read for kitchen-savvy fathers, called “Man With a Pan.” I don’t want to tell you how to live your life, but if your dad’s into cooking, this would be a great Father’s Day gift.

John was nice enough to send a copy out to 8BitDad, and unfortunately, reading it took me longer than expected. I was planning on giving it a skim and letting you guys know it was a “wonderful jaunt through food and fatherhood.” But then I started reading it and, well hell, if this book isn’t one of the most easy-to-read, interesting fatherhood AND food books, I don’t know what is.
