AHH!! This is amazing. I was waiting for you to come out with an app but this will do nicely. Well, done you guys.

These are all great ideas!

So, if I have an oven that was made in the last ten years but isn't a super awesome one (we're renters, so it's very middle-of-the-road), do I need to crack my oven door? Of is this just something my mom tells me?

Cool idea but I would worry that my spices would end up tasting a little like the tic-tacs that previously called the container home. Anybody know if that is an issue?

I used to live in Portugal and they, too, would hang bags of water in their door frames. I thought they were crazy but not it seems I'll be joining their ranks as I try this next time I'm easting outside. Good post!

Galas...and only Galas. My wife thinks I'm an apple snob because I only eat one kind.

Ahh, Change it back! I guess to each, his/her own but it's a little too "almost southwestern.hippy" for me.

Ah, pistachios...I'm still waiting for the day when scientists discover that there is, in fact, some addictive substance in these nuts. I love them and I know they are "healty" in the right serving size but, having no self control, that line gets crossed in a matter of minutes and when I'm done it's just a dot on the horizon. There's got to be some sort of natural drug that explains this.

I love pickles (except for bread and butter/sweet ones, go figure)! I've always bought them from the store because it's easy and, as mentioned, nostalgic. The closest I've come to "homemade" pickles is putting other veggies in the leftover Vlassic brine to make Zesty Dill Whatevers. But, I've always been intrigued by these artisinal pickle makers and the flavors they produce. i think this article may have pushed me over the edge and into making my own pickles. Zesty, of course, not that sweet stuff.

I'm a huge fan of SimplyNoise. I listen online while I'm at work when I need to focus or if my brain just needs a break.

I only use their "brown noise" because a lot of the higher frequencies are cut and it sounds more comfortable over a longer perion of time.

They make a cookie like this in Portugal that I loved when I lived there. They called it "Chocolate Salami" because of the obvious resemblance. Really excited to try this one out!

I would pretty much do anything short of selling a kidney or a child to be a guest judge on Iron Chef America.

That or anything with Alton Brown.

These are awesome and way too simple (that's a good thing)! I've made these several times and am making them myself for my own birthday dinner tomorrow!

So I have a bottle of ginger ale that is in day one of fermentation and I have a rather dumb question...
Is the alcohol in the finished product negligible? Am I going to get buzzed? Is it okay for kids to try?

I recently bought myself a enameled cast iron dutch oven and it pretty much changed the way I cook. I'm a dad who loves to cook. My wife bakes and I cook, so it's a great tradeoff. My dutch over has been put into frequent weekly rotation with awesome results. If you don't have one, you can get one for less than $50 at most big retailers (that's what I did). I would have loved to drop a wad of cash on a Le Creuset but I can replace this one 4 times before I reach the price of one of those, even though they are amazing.

I dare you to buy one and cook short ribs and see if you don't feel the same way about a dutch oven. Life changing, I tell you.

Just as the picture shows...Chinese - 100%. You don't even have to warm it up. Just take it out of the fridge, grab a fork and go nuts.

Reminds me of a plush doll of Frank from Donnie Darko. Creepy and cool at the same time.

I'd hope they would be humanoid type beings so we'd have something in common before I blasted them with "Back in Black" by AC/DC. Earth don't mess around!

I've always been a fan of the Gettysburg soundtrack. Braveheart is good, too.
