America’s Test Kitchen Chili Recipe

http://www.panix.com/~clay/cookbook/ In Clay’s Kitchen introduced me to an important source of Cooking Knowledge. America’s Test Kitchen. And it was from this one little recipe that a whole world opened for me.

Now I have invested in expensive bits of cookware, a Le Creuset dutch oven, an All Clad Fry pan. The rest the say is history.

I have been reading Michael Geoghagen’s book Podcast Solutions in the early […]

Since I’m testing this WordPress blog, I thought I would devote a few entries to interoperability of the new Contribute and WordPress. So […]

Test no. 3

Since I first fired up this Blog to tryout WP2.0 I haven't tried very hard to put it through its paces. Some things like plug-ins are what I find most facinating about WP2.0. I know some big bloggin websites that have relied heavily on plug-ins for their functionality. What plug-ins do you think are the […]

Photo Blue Shuttle

Shuttle PC Every so often, Shuttle tries to compete directly with Apple. I’m sure that now when Apple has started its migration to the dual core Intel machines, they really will have to turn up the heat. If I ever buy a PC for the home, I’ll be torn between a Dell and Shuttle PC. […]
