I have been using "Cardio Trainer" a free app for Android (not sure if they have one for iphone or not) and I like for biking as it is also a GPS so I can map my rides and save them if I want to re-ride a route.
Glad to see that happening in some areas still.
Last year, while working our annual 3 day fish fry, for Kiwanis, at a local festival, I got bored at one point.  My wife had brought along a big bowl of mixed fruit and a Tupperware container full of pitted, fresh cherries.  With all the beer batter around, it got me to thinking so I created a cola batter, dipped the cherries in it and deep fried those bad boys!!!  They were tasty and I keep meaning to recreate those, with the addition of a rum spiked crème anglaise to dip...
I don't have any "secret" recipes.  I'll share every recipe I have, if I can.  By that I mean that many of my favorite dishes don't have an exact recipe that I follow and sometimes there are things I make, for dinner parties, etc. that are almost impossible to write a recipe for as I just wing it as I go along.   When I was in the restaurant business, I hated when people asked for recipes, not that I didn't want them to have the recipe, but those recipes were created for...
  In this day and age I'm not surprised.  In our law suit happy society I can see this as being perceived as a liability issue, which really sucks.
The culture of "service" has gotten horrendous in the last few decades.  I used to have sales reps that would jump through hoops to get my business and make sure that each and every delivery was correct.  And they made sure I got everything I needed, even if that meant that they had to run to the warehouse, pick it up, and bring it to me themselves, even if it was my fault for forgetting to order it.  Nowadays, even if it is their fault the attitude is "oh well, you'll...
What are you trying to accomplish with your website?  Is it a blog, a business site, a personal site, a large informational site such as this, forums and many contributors?  You end product will help determine what your needs are.  Wordpress is great if you are doing a blog or very simple website, but even then you have a choice between 2 different Wordpress systems, the one they host at wordpress.com or the much more robust Wordpress that you drop into your site hosted on...
I am so glad to have my Mastercook back.  I used it for years, then sometime around Microsoft Vista they seemed to stop updating it.  I eventually got it to work, somewhat, with XP, but the work-around left me unable to use many of the features.  Once I upgraded to Windows 8, it stopped working all together, and I ended up trying other software.  I was thrilled when I heard that Mastercook was doing a full overhaul of the product and bringing it up to date. I immediately...
Chris, and I bet the same chef would go ballistic if you forgot to prep something.  I always make lists.  Whether as a line dog, making a prep list, as a chef, prioritizing my day, or as an administrator trying to keep track the 101 things that need to get done, on a daily basis.  To me, lists are vital in ensuring that I get everything done and can prioritize them.  I also encourage all the young cooks that work with me to get into the habit.  It takes 5 minutes, tops, to...
I would never use it in a restaurant setting-too much chance for big problems.  As for home use-that would depend.  If I wasn't going to cook it up and serve that day, I would probably toss it.  Not necessarily because I would be concerned about a foodborne illness, but because I think the quality would start deteriorating quickly, overnight.  But if I was cooking it for myself, that same day, I would probably use it.
