Remember when you were four years old and you thought that your mom making farting noises on your stomach was comedic gold? These days, it probably takes something a little more than just blowing a raspberry on your tummy to elicit a laugh.
People are ordering kits that teach you how to make gourmet dishes, complete with pre-packaged ingredients sealed for freshness. It's a concept that seems so simple, and yet has revolutionized the way that people do dinner.
