Here's an idea for the next ChitChat cooking contest...

Pasta and biscuits prepared from scratch. No stove. No microwave. Nothing to burn.

Oh wait, except, perhaps, for the entire hotel!! Better keep Toggy away from this video!



Who needs a restaurant?!

When I was in college, we weren't allowed to have microwave ovens or hot-plates. I used an immersion heater like this one to make tea, instant coffee, soup or ramen. I had to be careful where I put it down after I was done. It was basically a 200 watt soldering iron. It could get liquids boiling quickly.

Wow! Now, I would never have thought of using an iron for a griddle.

If it falls on me and pins me underneath it, does that still count as seizing the day?

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

My college only allowed hot pots (would hold about 12 oz. of liquid) and popcorn poppers (the kind that still used oil -- air poppers and microwave packets hadn't been invented yet) in the dorm rooms. In fact, they would even sell mimeographed books for $1 with three or four dozen recipes that could be fixed in a popper: beef stew, soups, grilled minute steaks, stir-fry, etc.

I wish I had one of those recipe books because it sure would have helped while I was living on my own.

Huh, I've never seen one of those before. However, it reminds me of this funny tool I once saw in the fireplace at the birthplace of John Adams (Quincy, MA). It was an iron poker, and was among the other fireplace tools in his house. It had a coiled end which looked like it was intended to dissipate heat. I asked the ranger about it, and it was the 18th Century version of your device. The end was placed into the fire until red hot, then it was plugged into a cup of water. Presto! Hot water for tea or soup.
