Not Over-the-Top Expensive Knife Set

13 June 2017 - 01:55 PM

I have one glaring weakness in my kitchen and its my knifes. I've been using crappy knives for years. Can anyone recommend a good knife for a reasonable price? I'm looking for something to last me for a very long time and that performs well for trimming before the cook and slicing after the cook. I see some sets that are over a 1K and ain't going there but am willing to pay what it takes for a nice knife.  I'd like the set to include a nice bread slicing knife as well.



Tomato Question

30 May 2017 - 11:45 AM

I have a tomato plant that got "topped" by a critter of some sort. Does this mean the only way for it grow vertically is from a sucker? The growing tip got chopped. Should I just replace it?

New Forum Ads

A few new ads are messing with the functionality of site. The black box with the little red logo makes it so my cursor moves and I can't type. I literally have to x out that ad on every single page I visit. Is there something on my end I can do to stop this? It is also affecting my scrolling. 

Compost Porn

I had neglected my worm farm for a while but finally got around to cleaning her up. This tray is loaded with vermicompost! Beautiful, rich compost....this one tray filled up a five gallon bucket more than half way. 




Feel free to post pics of your home cooked compost.

Fire Chili !!

24 October 2016 - 12:26 PM

This recipe is so tasty, but also so hot. Next time I'll tone it down on the super hots.


3 lbs ground beef, browned

2 cans kidney beans

1 can tomatoe sauce

25 oz skinned tomatoes, chopped. I used home grown tomatoes out of the freezer... or 2 cans diced tomatoes

2 cups sweet onions

5 roasted and skinned hatch chili peppers, chopped (this is what makes this recipe)

1 Carolina Reaper seeded, diced

1 Bhut Jolokia seeded, diced

2 tsp garlic powder

2 TBL chili powder


Slow cooker. One hour on high, switch to low for 5 hours. 


It's hot! Replace the super hots with a more reasonable pepper if you're serving mortals.
