    A burned up a motor...

    I kid, I kid... Just don't try to make too many loaves of bread over a pound. :D
  6. I got SPURTLES!!! There's a guy on Etsy that makes some of the prettiest darn wood utensils I've ever seen and he's so reasonably priced I actually suggested he increase his prices given that he ships for free too. I sent him a pic of the ones I have and asked if he would make me one. He made 3 for me to choose from and I bought 2. Someone must of snatched up the last one because it's not there anymore. Here are my beauties....

    Nice! I love wooden utensils....just found a craftsman here locally who makes them too.....must get....

  8. Although I am in retail - this is not a product endorsement.

    For any of you thinking about buying a bread maker... check your local Volunteers of America, Goodwill, and similar thrift shops. People buy a bread machine, complain about the small loaf size, or loose interest, then a few months later donate them to places like Goodwill. Our local thrift shops always seem to have five or six brands to choose from. I gave less than $10 for my $189 (when new) bread machine.

    For those of you wanting a cast iron pot for doing the no-knead bread recipes - plain cast iron Dutch ovens work the same and are a lot less expensive than the enameled ones. Lodge Cast Iron (US company) sells enameled cast iron Dutch Ovens. They are considerably less expensive than the French Imports. At least into the US. Not sure about Canada.

    Really? I'm much more interested in what you think of your first hot sauce experience than any of the very nice gear in this thread, to be honest!

    That's good advice for anything. A friend of mine manages a Goodwill in the Chicago area and his home is practically furnished from Goodwill finds. $1500 bicycles, $2000 audio systems, $700 sofa chairs, etc...all of it 90-95% off retail and besides being donated it all looks brand new. He says even though he knows it's a really expensive item the customers that shop there won't pay even half the price or 70% of it. He has to mark everything waaaaay down to move it. He says he has regular customers that come in and make a living off reselling their Goodwill finds. One guy buys nothing but wall art and has found art worth several thousand dollars that folks have just donated.

    All I can say is, Tabasco, where have you been all my life!

    Smells completely different than it tastes, has a vinegar smell to it, but doesn't taste like it.
    Since getting the first bottle, I now have a bottle in my locker at work, one in the car, and even went camping for a week and took another bottle with me so I didn't run out.
    Besides meats, eggs, etc it also tastes good splashed on dark chocolate :cool1
  13. When I was pregnant I ate hot sauce on everything I couldn't put wing sauce on lol. We have a huge collection of hot sauces, my husband is an addict as well. You should try Marie Sharps habanero sauce. That's some awesome stuff.

    This. Marie Sharp's is amazing. There is is only one store around me that carries it and if its not out, usually is, I'll buy 4-5 bottles at a time. Absolutely love this stuff. I find it more versatile than tabasco or sriracha.
  16. Me too! It has an amazing flavor without being too overpowering or vinegary like many hot sauces are. I get mine online at drchilepepper.com. He's got great prices, fast shipping and sells by the case and gallon lol
  17. Danny that is so funny. Your right though you forgot to mention the induction hob, debuyers in addition to the SV rig, Chamber Vac and vitamix, though I'm a Blendtec kinda guy.

    Did I mention I just got a four HP Husqvarna back pack blower? It push air over 200mph at the nozzle. Got to get yourself on of these.

  18. A couple new boards. I wanted something easy to move to sit on the counter for fruits and sandwiches so I ordered the Birdseye. He sent the walnut one as a gift :) Love my board guy.

    Bought a couple old sabs (6" and 8") to learn how to make handles. The blade is marked "The Main Course at Bloomingdale's." S1.JPG
