| Food and Drink Board|| My Foodsaver finally died - recs? - htownjeep on 8/19/14 at 12:59 pm|
Should I jump up to the Cabelas commercial grade one or remain with Foodsaver? I've had this one for over a decade now. I looked at the current models and they can get pretty fancy. Any opinions on why I shouldn't just get a comparable model to what I had and worked for what seemed like forever? ...

Has this happened to anyone else? I sprayed my entire back yard last weekend and used 1oz/gallon and followed the instructions listed under mosquito control.
This morning I walk out to check on the pool and just about dropped my coffee. My perfectly green yard has this 12" x 36" patch that is j...

Is there a good place online to buy truffle oil? And is there a particular brand that anyone recommends? Should I get white, black etc?
Any recommendations would be helpful. Was going to try and replicate some truffle fries me and the SO had not too long ago. I think she could have ate her ...

My parents have a huge deck/gazebo out at their property. Their place is way out in the sticks and they hardly get any radio reception.
I'm going to wire speakers up for them in the very near future and as of right now they only have a directv dish and a flatscreen tv out there. They do not hav...

Anyone have any recommendations for a small fridge for my bar? The built-in I currently have died and it was dated looking anyways. Looking on compactappliance.com and there's tons of different brands etc. I have a wal-mart mini fridge in my office but I want something classier than that for my g...

A/C keeps tripping the breaker. Started doing this 3 days ago and is irritating to say the least. When you flip the breaker back on it runs like a champ and cools down fine. But it trips early on in the day and it gets pretty hot in the house and takes a while to catch up at night.
Would this ...

So, we're sitting around (me and the gf (no pics a-holes)) and we decide we just want a change of scenery and get away for a few days. We threw darts at a map and ended up with 8 finalist cities and then wrote those down and drew out of a hat.
The winner was Memphis. I haven't been since I was ...

Went to this great restaurant on the water around Puget Sound a few years ago. I remember we drove off of the main road and it was a small two lane road on a hell of an incline to get there. It was pretty nice and had great seafood. The view was awesome and they had an outside area/deck but it wa...

I got a Gold late last year but have been thinking I wanted the Platinum instead for the travel benefits (I weighed the $450 fee to the benefits and figured I'd give it a try). Well, I applied thinking it would instantly replace my Gold. Wrong. Not sure why I thought that, but now I have both.
