Successful Sales!

We have been very busy getting together all of our products and we have made our first sales in time for the holidays!!

It has been really exciting to receive our products and to package them with our cool labels and tags. We weren't expecting such a big response and it has been awesome. We are working towards more advertising and we are also thinking about selling our products in stores. We have a couple stores on the cape in mind but we realized we can really expand to anywhere. We are interested in hearing any suggestions anyone has.

We're advertising through facebook and digg now and also trying to generate some word-of-mouth advertising. There are so many resources out there with social networking that make it a lot easier for things like this to get around!

This month has been really exciting and fulfilling, as we turned an idea into real products.

Also, our trademark was approved!! Woohoo!

Does anyone have any suggestions, comments, or insight into owning and succeeding with your own business?

Aprons, Oven Mitts and Dishtowels, oh my!

Show your support for your bitch by wearing one of our The Bitch Stopped Cooking aprons! We are expecting delivery of aprons, oven mitts, pot holders and dishtowels in the next couple weeks. Check our order page for details. We will post here when our items are available. Our current aprons feature a high quality silk screen of our The Bitch Stopped Cooking.

Here is our father wearing the original The Bitch Stopped Cooking apron.

The Bitch Stopped Cooking

Imagine a life where you come home, pour yourself a glass of wine, put your feet up, and thirty minutes later hear "dinner's ready, lovergirl". (Either that or the sound of the kitchen smoke detector jarring you from your after-work siesta). A life where when your kid's teacher asks what you are bringing to the potluck you say "I don't know, I'll have to ask my husband." A life without the unpredictability of that old electric stove, without the frustration of allthericestickingtothewoodenspoon, without the trickle of tofu water down your sleeve after you open the container.

This is the life of a bitch that stopped cooking.


Our idea of culinary liberation is based on traditional American gender roles. Historically, women have cooked for the family. We know many families where the man does the majority of the cooking. We honor these men and thank them for the work they do for their families. For the most part, this idea, the aprons and other kitchen accessories are all in fun, but we also hope to help women who feel stuck in the kitchen. We are there for them and for the men who must now learn to cook.
