Let it Cook – YouTube Channel

I have almost binge-watched this guy’s videos now and I really recommend his channel to everyone who’s interested in reasonable cooking aside from “quick’n easy” recipes. He’s a super likeable person (he seems to be bavarian 🙂 ) and he’s presenting his work in an understandable, instructive and educational way. It’s german language only, but for german-speakers it’s a must-see.

Usual disclaimer: I DO NOT make any money by linking to this channel and he doesn’t pay me for this (in fact, he doesn’t even know I exist 🙂 )

KitchenAid

Yes. I’m over fourty now and slowly I every so often catch myself getting excited about… things… 🙂 I found a sale, spent some money and bought myself a new KitchenAid™  food processor! It’s made in the USA, and just like e.g. a Harley Davidson it is a heavy, sturdy and full-metal appliance.

Basically a damn drill press with a dough hook. I’m very pleased with it and I hope it’ll be one of those once-in-a-lifetime purchases.


DIY Washstand

I made a washbasin for the northern germany restroom from a very beautiful slice of walnut wood that I got hands on and some items that were left over from previous projects. Perhaps someone might draw some inspiration from it 🙂


Anti-Rust Bubble Bath

 

I’ve got a lot of rusty old tools lying around here that I thought were a reasonable winter project to clean and restore. So the first thing was to clean off the heavy “crust of rust” on them and the easiest way to do this is with an electrolysis bath. This is how it works and what you’ll need to do this by yourself. It’s cheap, easy and effective.


Blade Hardening

I’m not a professional knife maker, let alone a blacksmith, but I have read lot on the subject and I have made some knives in the past (up to now, none of them even broke or hurt anybody…) and I have gathered some experience. So here’s what I do, what worked for me and what I have an eye on.


Squirrel Feeder for the Northern Germany Refuge

I made another squirrel feeder for the nothern germany garden. The little guys must be darn hungry these days so I wanted to help them out a little.


Smol Girl on a Big Journey

So we had a 10 minute countryside drive to my sister in law’s house today… 🙂 Gattina is generally very relaxed when she’s in the car, but this time she wasn’t “trapped” in her transport basket but could wander about almost freely. She was so curious and excited by all the fascinating sights from the window!


Bevel Filing Jig

I have realised with a little dismay, that most of my knife making tools (such as for example this one or this one) are back at home in munich and that I’m not overly well equipped with the little things here at the northern germany refuge. So I made the working vise some days ago and now I finished a bevel grinding/filing jig to be mounted on my bench vise. Although they’re simple, non-complex tools, it feels very good to do things by hand again.


Simple Knife Working Vise

I have the same one at home but now I had to make another one for the northern germany refuge. It’s a simple construction, consisting of not much more than a wooden block with two holes for attaching clamps and a smaller block at the bottom so I can mount it to the bench vise. Additionally, I added two small holes on the top for a “stop-screw” that keeps verything in place when working.
