  2. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Cruise ship breakfast. Anchored off Portofino, Italy.
  3. Today's breakfast back in the cheap seats. LA - London on American. Everything was icy cold, as was I
  4. I don't think it's avoidance of truth but more a love for abbreviations and acronyms , and not just by our government in the US - this is a European-based naming convention. International Numbering System for Food Additives And yes, 385 is indeed calcium disodium EDTA, itself an abbreviation for ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid
  5. I recommend a location close to the sputter coater you'll need for your SEM so you can save space by figuring a way to use the same vacuum pump for both applications.
  6. What's the best Craft Brewery in LA?

    The US brewers assoc does have a definition for an American craft brewery that it be small, independent and traditional, with specified standards for each of the 3 criteria. This past summer, the association launched a rather ugly seal that qualified brewers can use on their products. Sorry for the late response. Not sure it helps the OP's request but my local fave is Ladyface.
  7. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    I can't, in good conscience, click "Like" on those barely singed slices of soft-looking bread masquerading as "toast" but you've got me thinking about sardine/toast variations more to my own, admittedly odd, tastes. For that, I offer you my thanks!
  8. I just can't cook __________!

    Head down, I'm shuffling over to join the pie crust group. I'm just grateful the doughboy has our backs!
  9. The Fruitcake Topic

    I found the same recipe in a few places. One of the respondents to a Food52 query (I am looking for a fruitcake recipe...) credits it to a caterer from Detroit who had recipes published in Gourmet. A blogger, (Miles in Between) remembers seeing it in an old Gourmet post.

  14. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Another tuna pasta dinner. This recipe with Calabrese chili peppers was found on the Eataly site. I used the same oil-poached tuna I made for yesterday's Zuni Café recipe but the spicy chili peppers gave this version a very different flavor profile.
  15. Scanning or TEM? And what do you want to examine with it?
