One of the things I like about DC is, when we get questions, "how do I cook...," we have a ton of smart people who not only explain the how? but often, the why? the science.

Just for fun, I have a hypothetical question... Will a computer/software one day be capable of producing an all original recipe - ingredients, and instructions - that tastes fantastic? And, just to make sure it's not a random fluke from a piece of pascal code that even I could probably write, could it create an entire restaurant menu's worth of successfully fantastic original recipes?
Hmmm...someone would have to teach it first, it would need an understanding of flavors.

I was good at all four of those subjects, PF. I *hated* social studies....maybe that is why I do not like hearing about grocery economics and doing dishes.

You know I like cooking and do not like baking.

Isn't it too bad that the picture in the link shows the board being used incorrectly.

I noticed. The model is obviously not OCD. It looks like the old style guillotine paper cutter I used to use.

I liked these items too:
ThinkGeek :: Good Chemistry Salt & Pepper Shakers
ThinkGeek :: Cheat Sheet Kitchen Apron
ThinkGeek :: Knuckle Pounder Meat Tenderizer

But I really really like this ThinkGeek :: Equal Measure and I'll be adding it to the Christmas/Birthday list. I also like the recipe that's on the page. One of the ingredients is
"1 large gallus domesticus ovum, separated".

LOL!!! I have the S&P shakers and just ordered the Meat Tenderizer, along with some other Geek things. I'm hopeless..., but I had to get Shrek the Guitar Pick Punch.
