Melting cheese

Who doesn’t like melted cheese? 🙂 Here’s a useful chart.


Slow cooker conversions – Update

Here’s an update to my former slow cooker conversion chart. Unlike the old one it also mentions oven-time vs. the applicable slow cooker times. Loads of recipes there, too.


Product Review: Soil tester

I like bullshitting around about hatching seedlings and grow various plants indoors and in my garden. But the one with the real green thumb in this house is my wife. So I, for my part, have to rely on technical utilities in order not to either drown or dry out my windowsill greens.

This is what I use (available on amazon). It can tell you the soil’s moisture (cool and important), the ph-value (who cares?) and the amount of sunlight (couldn’t care less) for your plants.

Note: I don’t have any affiliate-link or something the like to Amazon (I suppose they would laugh out loud if I came up to them with that). I post this here simply because it’s useful to me and that’s where I got it from.


At least I’m trying…

And for someone like me, this is exhausting…


Product Review: Garlic Grinder

So I got myself this new little Garlic-Grinding-Machine-Application-Thingy. Works absolutely great! I like garlic a lot and this really comes in very handy, since it makes cool minced garlic in no time, is easy to use and easy to clean. No mess, no smelly hands and almost no work.


Kitchen Conversions

This is the kitchen cheat sheet that I often use. Since I’m used to the metric system this comes in handy for me. I don’t know anymore where I got this from.


My standard meat curing formula (Recipe)

So here’s my standard recipe for curing meat that I mostly use. It can be adjusted to personal needs in terms of herbs and spices, but I strongly recommend to stick to the directions concerning the curing salt.

Recipe (per kg of meat):
30-40 g curing salt (rule of thumb: 3-4%)
10 g brown sugar
1 tsp. freshly and coarsely ground black pepper
1 tsp. dried rosemary


How to reasonably load your fridge

Found an intersting article in the german Newspaper Die Welt on how to reasonably store your goods in your refrigerator according to the different temperature zones. I’ve taken the liberty of translating it.


How to store Mushrooms?

Day #6

Im ending my field test today, because a.) I’m hungry and b.) I won’t be storing mushrooms longer than 5-6 days anyway.


How to store Mushrooms?

Day #4

Almost no recognizable difference. They’re all a little dried, but none of them are spoiled in any sense. One Thing seems to be that you have to store them uncovered and on newspaper or kitchen towel. Let’s give ’em another few days.
