Sharpening Knives with a Bench Grinder - GarmischTiger
Any F&D types down with this? I’m losing my edge (punny) with the stone and steel, and other methods are equally time-consuming. And it’s always 5 or 6 knives to sharpen. I’ve been looking at the following and wonder if anyone here has direct experience with these products: [link=(http://w...

Grew up in Ascension Parish and moved away after graduating LSU in early 90s. Sporadic visits through '03, then family popped smoke. My connection to the area since that time has been LSU football, TD, and contact with a few friends. One’s getting married in BR in January and I just pulled the st...

How hard is re-installing Windows (8.0)? - GarmischTiger
Perhaps a better question is, can a non-tech savvy guy like me do it without cursing and throwing things? Our > one-year-old laptop (HP Pavilion) has started misbehaving.

Streaming Classical Music - GarmischTiger
I’ve started doing this at work to have something slightly soothing that’s not too distracting fill the silence and random office clatter. My public radio station has two-hour classical sets on Monday and Friday which are great, and I’ve been using Pandora to fill the void. After two weeks it’s cl...

Homemade Pot Pie Question: Crust - GarmischTiger
Well, mostly homemade - I bought the crust (Pillsbury roll & bake), which leads to my question: should I pre-bake the bottom crust, and if so for how long? It's been a long time since I've made one of these and I don't remember what I've done in the past. Any help would be appreciated - ...

Recommended roasting time for stuffed pork (loin chop) - GarmischTiger
I've got two thick 12-oz loin chops that I've butterflied, slathered with a sesame-apricot preparation, rolled (lengthwise) and trussed. Almost exactly like two miniature stuffed pork loins. I know my cooking time and temp for doing a whole stuffed loin (250 until 140; ~ 4 hours). Looking for a ba...
