Whiteboard Project: Best Book Series Adaptation?

With season 7 of the popular TV show Game of Thrones drawing to a close in August, we were interested in which well-known book series had produced the best film or TV adaptation. Somewhat surprisingly given all the recent hype, Game of Thrones only came in third place out of four among our voters. The Harry Potter movies came in second place, and the Lord of the Rings films were the clear favorites. The James Bond movies were the most unloved, garnering only six votes. It seems we have many Tolkien fans out there!

Whiteboard Project: Is OLD BAY® Just for Crabs?

In one of our most decisive polls yet, it is clear we have a lot of OLD BAY® fans here! Most of you do not believe this Maryland-born seasoning should only be used on steamed crabs. However, the crabs-only folks are not without some support, as the original name of OLD BAY® was “Delicious Brand Shrimp and Crab Seasoning.”¹ Those more adventurous in using the seasoning suggested french fries and pizza – any other ideas?
