    Okay, I can get on here at a restaurant with wifi, so it's obviously something to do with my home setup. Sounds like I need to call Verizon! At least I've narrowed it down.

    Thanks, Gilgamesh. Is there a link for the orange-flavored beef stew recipe? It sounds a bit like boeuf bourguignon, which I've made but not in a PC. I haven't tried risotto in it but I plan to. I...

    I only used my Kuhn Rikon a couple of times. That's why I wanted the multicooker; it seemed much more user-friendly and I liked the fact that it's electric and has programmable settings. There are...

    It’s 35° here right now and going up a bit; what precipitation is falling is in the form of rain and sleet. We probably got over a foot of snow overnight and it’s heavy stuff. I had to shovel...

    I just used the buttermilk substitute for a recipe for banana bread with chocolate chips. Thanks, people!

    And Spunky, I don't think the color of the corn meal matters. Give it a try!

    That looks good but my supermarket doesn't carry organic buttermilk, so it's not something I typically have handy. I do keep organic corn meal, though.

    I had read several articles about the healthy properties of avocado pits, but I'm still not tempted. It seems like too much work for a dubious outcome.

    That bench in the garden is a great place to sit when I take breaks from weeding or cultivating or planting. It's fun to watch goldfinches and hummingbirds and monarchs flit around.

    Probably not just because it's not easy to post photos here. But this is a picture from winter a couple of years ago - four otters on the ice, seen from my diningroom window.

    I have real things. We were just watching a wood duck on the river outside my window. The males are gorgeous. I also have lots of deer; I've seen as many as six standing in my field.

    You'll have to report back if you do try it! I'd be curious to know what you think. One question, though: do you buy the gel or the liquid? I have the liquid and maybe the gel is more powerful.
