    Some use a wet batter that is poured into crumpet rings Some are baked in an oven rather than cooked on a skillet either partially or completely Some are cooked in a covered skillet news flash that is baking not skillet cooking Judging from reviewer comments most of the recipes lacked the large holes and sourdough flavor characteristic of English muffins A few tried to correct this problem by the addition of vinegar for the sour flavor and baking soda just before cooking to create holes That sounded like artifice to me so I continued my research and eventually discovered the authentic source of that characteristic taste and texture I tested my theory with a recipe of my own creation and the result was fantastic Here is my recipe with pictures Homemade English muffin with natural nooks and crannies Homemade English muffin nooks and crannies filled with butter Continue reading Recipe for Authentic English Muffins with Natural Nooks and Crannies Tags cast iron cooking Category Food Recipes Cooking Nutrition 45 Comments Black Rust and Cast Iron Seasoning February 2 2010 4 50 pm My previous post on the chemistry of cast iron seasoning focused on fat polymerization the transformation of an oil into a hard slick glaze After I posted that someone sent me some links that talked about two other elements in cast iron seasoning carbon and magnetite Carbon is the black stuff that s left after something is burned A certain amount of carbon gets bound up in the polymerized fat when food is cooked in the pan This may darken the pan but does it make it more nonstick Some say it does though I don t see the mechanism More interesting to me is the third element magnetite Continue reading Black Rust and Cast Iron Seasoning

    Thinkpad with built in Bluetooth At the time I was running 64 bit Vista and all was well Then I upgraded to 64 bit Windows 7 and suddenly the mouse started constantly losing connection There was no detectable pattern It would work fine for a while and then start disconnecting all the time for no apparently reason Sometimes it would not wake up after sleeping but sometimes it would quit while I was using it At first I got it going again by removing the mouse from the list of Bluetooth devices and then adding it back in That took too much time Then by accident I discovered that I could wake it up by opening my Bluetooth settings and toggling the checkbox Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer If it was off I d turn it on if it was on I d turn it off That was faster but still a pain I searched the internet and found many similar complaints but no solutions Several sites suggested upgrading your Bluetooth drivers There s no new driver for the Microsoft mouse but I updated the Thinkpad Bluetooth drivers No joy Then the other day the mouse started quitting on me every few minutes and in desperation I searched again This time I found the answer There are two separate settings that need to be changed Continue reading Bluetooth Mouse Losing Connection No More Tags Bluetooth Mouse Windows Category Technology Tips Fixes 291 Comments Control a Bose Wave Radio with a Universal Remote January 16 2010 10 35 pm The picture on my new 40 Samsung LCD HDTV is amazing but the sound not so much So I plugged the audio output of the television into the auxilliary jack for my Bose Wave Radio model AWRCC1 Much better But then I encountered a new problem When the TV audio is external the TV remote can t control it Luckily the radio has a remote otherwise I d have to walk across the room to mute the TV when the phone rings but I d rather have the TV volume on the same remote as the rest of the TV controls First I tried to set the auxilliary button on my Time Warner Cable remote to the Bose radio The cable remote instructions list these codes for Bose audio equipment 070 170 224 374 409 460 532 I tried them all but none of them worked So then I tried the scanning method holding down the channel button until the radio turns off But it never turned off I did an internet search on controlling Bose devices with universal remotes and found a plethora of contradictory information none of which solved my problem So I called Bose customer support Their products may be pricey but they sure have good customer support I got someone on the phone immediately and he was knowledgeable He explained the problem instantly and gave me the solution And now I m sharing it with you

    Streep s character I won t tell you who wins I thought the acting and direction were better than the script which was a bit predictable The acting was great everyone in it was good One very funny scene was when Streep s character tells her children about the affair with their father thanks to some inspired direction or maybe it was in the script who knows I won t spoil that for you either The movie has many funny moments one in particular is fall on the floor funny If you see it you ll know which one I mean The film consistently held my attention never dragged But it became obvious fairly early on what was going to happen so there wasn t a lot of suspense Nor was there much depth in the character development This is okay in a light comedy there just wasn t a lot to it It s a simple story with simple characters I d rate it good but not great pleasant but not profound It s a pleasant way to spend a couple hours but not the kind of movie you tell all your friends they have to see Tags Movies

    Blog button you will see that the look and feel of the blog and the rest of the site are identical This site contains much more than a blog There s a forum with a chat a newsletter various content pages sample chapters from my book a testimonials page etc How did I get the blog to look like the rest of the site The Atahualpa theme I can never remember that name What does it mean This theme gives you a menu driven interface to just about every WordPress theme option so you can make your site look exactly like you want I had no trouble at all duplicating the layout of the rest of my site and it was a lot easier to do in Atahualpa than it would have been manually It takes a little time to set up because there are so many options but none of it is hard All you need to know is a little basic CSS Now that I ve found Atahualpa I ll never use any other theme I was so enchanted with it I sent the author a donation Category Technology Tips Fixes 4 Comments Subscribe Subscribe to Sheryl s
