Yo! I’m Cristin, and I write this blog. I live in Seattle, but I grew up in Arizona. Here is a picture of me being fascinated by a natural body of water. By day, I’m a lawyer. By night, I anthropomorphize various kitchen utensils. I am a vegetarian. I am desperately trying to reduce my frozen food consumption. I hope that my blog will make you laugh. You can reach me at willothewhisk(at)gmail(dot)com. Please direct all complaints to The Great Guillaume Le Fouet.

::Cast of Characters::

The Great Guillaume Le Fouet is a classically trained whisk who once served as personal whisk to Karl Lagerfeld‘s personal chef. One day, Lagerfeld suddenly decided that he wanted to wear only very slim pants, and lost 92 pounds in 13 months. The chef was sacked, and poor Guillaume was out of a job. Downtrodden and rusty, he whisk-hiked from Paris to the United States. Despite his good looks and culinary skill, he ended up in the $1 utensil bin at the Ballard Goodwill in Seattle, and on a dark and stormy Saturday, Cristin brought him home. At her place, he has learned English from watching reality television, and developed an affinity for the word “frigging.” He is exasperated by the state of affairs in Cristin’s kitchen–so much so that he refers to her only as “The Girl.” He is surprisingly good at teaching people how to make French Food That Will Make Them Feel Chic and Important.

TEA-hee-hee! is a sociopathic cast-iron teapot with a Delicious Plan to take over the world, slowly but surely, using tea and treats.

@madame_instagraham is SO over the complexities of modern life, and so are 97% of her Twitter followers. She hearts DIY. Yesterday she started canning, beekeeping, and raising her three chickens, Martha, Peggy, and Dusty. Super-cute names, right?
