  1. For what it's worth, Rozanne Gold has written a series of 3-ingredient cookbooks.
  2. I ♥️ the Oxo side opener!!! Going around the can twice isn't a big deal—the handle is so comfortable.
  3. I liked the Dartos until they changed the design—I hate the new designs. The sides are now more squared off than sweeping. I'll stick with my 4 Mineral B pans.
  4. Starting point pretty much depends on what you plan to use as a pit.
  5. Labeling laws are to blame. I haven't done any recent research to see if anything has changed (there have been a lot of complaints) but here's one of my posts from a few years ago. "Ruhlman has got it wrong, at least partly, he insists that some packers of naturally "cured" products are trying to deceive customers. That's incorrect...they are simply following labeling laws, it's not some hoax. The link again..... http://ruhlman.com/2011/05/the-no-nitrites-added-hoax/ http://ruhlman.com/2011/02/meat-curing-safety-issues/ From the blog post above........ "It’s my belief that companies advertising their products as “nitrite-free,” are either uninformed themselves or are pandering to America’s ignorance about what is healthy and what is harmful in our foods. In other words, the term “no nitrites added” is a marketing device, not an actual health benefit." They're not uninformed, pandering or using the terms as a sneaky marketing device, they're doing what the 'rulers' at the almighty USDA tell them to do as far as labeling goes. From USDA materials..... "The USDA currently does not recognize naturally occurring nitrates as effective curing agents in meats, so if using Celery Juice Powder for products being sold to the public, the end-products must be labeled "Uncured" "Bacon can be manufactured without the use of nitrite, but must be labeled "Uncured Bacon, No Nitrates or Nitrites added" and bear the statement "Not Preserved, Keep Refrigerated Below 40 °F At All Times" — unless the final product has been dried according to USDA regulations, or if the product contains an amount of salt sufficient to achieve an internal brine concentration of 10% or more, the label does not have to carry the handle statement of "Not Preserved, Keep Refrigerated below ___" etc. Recent research studies have shown for products labeled as uncured, certain ingredients added during formulation can naturally produce small amounts of nitrates in bacon and, therefore, have to be labeled with the explanatory statement "no nitrates or nitrites added except for those naturally occurring in ingredients such as celery juice powder, parsley, cherry powder, beet powder, spinach, sea salt etc.""
  6. A pheasant flew into my friend's large bay window in their finished basement almost 40 years ago — it was tasty!
  7. Yes, but best if they're only hit in the head and it's a fresh kill. I wasted time on a MESS other than that one time and I'll never do it again. I'll spare y'all the gory details. Any roadkill is best when very fresh (obviously) and only hit in the head. ETA: We've devoured deer, turkey, grouse, pheasant, etc. that were roadkill — only (or mostly) hit in the head.
  8. I have a brand new ThermoWorks timer that's never been opened, and probably never will be — though I did use one before smart speakers. It's too easy to say "Hey Google, set a timer for 35 minutes" or "Alexa, set a timer for 35 minutes" — and walk away without touching anything. And if any entity is interested in the boredom and monotony of this household — they are a PATHETIC lot!!! We set timers or reminders several times a day.
  9. "The “father of modern bourbon,” Dr. James Crow [born in Scotland], begins experimenting at a distillery along Glenns Creek in Kentucky’s Woodford County. In freely sharing his scientific discoveries, he helps to popularize [but didn't create] the sour mash process."
  10. Yeah, placement is key. That can be an issue in this tiny house.
  11. This? Dock Socket for Google Nest Mini
  12. For what it's worth, I have wall mounts for the Google Home minis.
  13. Ruffed grouse can be one of the most difficult small game to bag. You rarely notice them when they're at rest — when they take flight, the loud noise startles you so much that they're gone before you can recompose yourself. LOL They're tasty though, when you do get lucky.
  14. For what it's worth... Chefstep's Japanese (Kewpie-Style) Mayo
  15. Alexa or Google Home (one full size and two minis) Timers Reminders Weather etc. etc. etc. Alexa User Guide: Learn What Alexa Can Do
