re: Anyone one have an induction cooktop? - TigerTaco
[quote]I think you mean induction. I have one and love it for its precise heat adjustment and immediate responsiveness. It’s also easy to clean and looks nice in a modern kitchen. Warning, you better own cast iron or stainless steel pots or plan to buy them.[/quote] You are right. Induction. I ...

re: Garden planning - TigerTaco
[quote]I do Shishitos most years, including this one. I found they produce heavily early and taper off when the real heat kicks in. Enjoy early and often.[/quote] You were right about the Shishitos. They were done by August. They were great while they lasted. The Padrons are still going and I ...

re: Camera recomendations - TigerTaco
Check out the Sony A6000 and the Sony 28mm F2 lens for autofocus or the Rokinon 12mm F2 lens for manual focus. I've used them for astro shots, but I've never been in a location for the northern lights. I can't see why it wouldn't work. The below was using the 28mm lens. The pic could be better with ...

We had a great lunch at U Medvidku in the old town area. If you go, I hope you like a lot of meat, dumplings and gravy. Prices are cheap and you will be stuffed. The restaurant dates from 1466....

re: Parents Going On River Cruise-Berlin/Wittenberg to Prague(Elbe Riv.), Any Must Do's? - TigerTaco
I stayed two nights at the Hilton Prague this past summer. One good thing is the Hilton has it's own crew of drivers with fixed rates that are competitive with taxis. First thing in the morning, we took a car to the palace and worked our way down back to the city. The driver gave us his card to c...

re: Cooking Flounder in a Salt Crust - TigerTaco
Yes, flounder works. I split it open and stuff with crab and shrimp. I place a bit of parchment paper over the opening so salt doesn't get into it when covering. You don't have to add it, but egg whites added to kosher salt makes it adhere together better so it stays on the fish....

re: Honeymoon in Spain and France - TigerTaco
In that area, I've been to Aix-en-Provence, Cassis, Nice and a small town in the mountains. I drove in that area picking up the car in Aix and it wasn't much of a problem other than trying to find the car rental return at the airport in Nice. GPS routed me to the wrong terminal. Even though drivi...
