While this article doesn't tell a lot of the things horehound is supposed to be good for, if you're interested in horehound sci...read more

in Dill
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I got some organic dill seeds a while ago. I decided I wanted them in powder form to make them easier to use at a moments' notice for a wider variety of purposes. So, I blended them up, and now they look kind of like peat moss, but workable. The freshly blended up seeds smelled like menthol, ...read more

Scoring potatoes with a knife instead of poking them with a fork

in Potato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, a few months ago, or so, I got the idea that it would be easier, prior to baking, just to score my potatoes with a knife than to poke them with a fork. Knifes are easier to wash, and it takes less effort to score than to poke. So, I did it, and the potatoes cooked a lot more nicely, too. ...read more

I haven't experimented terribly with creating chicken sandwiches. So, I decided it's about time to start. I live with a relative who likes plain, unseasoned, unadorned baked chicken. No seasonings.
