Abt-solutely Delicious: Apple Crisp Recipe

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Is there a food that says “fall” more than the apple? It finds its way into seemingly everything in the kitchen, from desserts to drinks. And of course, autumn is peak apple pie season. But as delicious as they are, pies can take a serious dedication of time, so we suggest this recipe for an apple crisp, instead. It’s got all of the great things about apple pie—it’s sweet and crunchy and crumbly—but it’s easier to make and much harder to mess up. So grab some of your favorite type of apple, and make something sweet.

Tips to Protect Against Identity Theft

Friday, October 13th, 2017

While it’s always been important to be protective about personal information, recent events have reiterated the need for vigilance, both physically and electronically. Here’s a collection of products and tactics you can use to stay ahead of the game and keep your personal information as secure as possible.

Anything that goes in your trash and contains your personal information should be shredded to keep it out of the hands of those who could exploit it.

10,000 Cupcakes with KitchenAid

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

KitchenAid’s Cook for the Cure is one of our favorite campaigns every year, because it gives us and our friends the chance to do something meaningful in a fun way. By cooking cupcakes and sharing a photo of them on social media, each of us can raise awareness and money from the comfort of our home by doing something we enjoy. KitchenAid will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen for every cupcake photo shared, with a goal of 10,000 cupcakes. But we know that baking isn’t for everyone, so last weekend we did the legwork, providing the cupcakes—and even the pretty pink backdrop—so those of us who are more comfortable enjoying cupcakes than cooking them could still contribute to the cause. Here’s a little look at the festivities.

The New Bowers & Wilkins PX Headphones

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Achieving just the right mix of luxury and technology is no easy feat, but it’s something that Bowers & Wilkins does again and again, which is one of the reasons we love them. It’s why they’re one of the most respected home audio brands, and are trusted for use in such prestigious locations as Skywalker Sound, Abbey Road Studios, and, of course, the David Abt Theater. While most know B&W speakers as a superior brand for home audio, their line of portable audio and headphones is equally as impressive. And the new Bowers & Wilkins PX wireless noise-canceling headphones mark the brand’s most advanced headphone offering yet.
