I'm sorry, too, guys. It's also been a long day here, even though it was supposed
to be my day off.foodpump:
I can certainly see why the imperial measuring would be frustrating for you, since you're in Canada. Not so much of an issue here, of course. I usually "guesstimate" my measurements anyway, except when baking. That's pretty much the Southern way of cooking, lol.
I think my main reason for liking CI is that they don't take advertising, so I tend to trust their reviews and reporting. I also like their approach of deconstructing a recipe to see what really does and doesn't work. I don't always agree with them, of course, especially when it comes to Texas, Southwestern, and Mexican cuisines. Actually, now that I think of it, I usually find them most valuable and trustworthy when it comes to cuisines other
than those three. I'm completely self-taught, so there's a few blank spaces in my food knowledge.PeteMcCracken:
First, I apologize for the "stupid" remark. I honestly thought you guys were trolling the new guy. Still, no excuse for being that rude.
That said, since you do have an iPhone, please tell me you're not neglecting to take advantage of the fact that you have the entire internet
sitting in your pocket!
What I've been doing is using my smartphone (an HTC with Android) to do things like check market prices on-the-fly, communicate with customers and vendors, and look stuff up on Wikipedia and Google immediately instead of trusting myself to remember it when I get back to my PC. I also decided last year to go back to school full-time (working just on the weekends now) to finally complete my degree, so of course it's an invaluable resource there, too.
This will probably sound silly, but I honestly don't know how I ever survived without my smartphone. Once I learned how to use the thing, it has become incredibly efficient to be able to access the internet right where I am instead of having to run to the office or break out the laptop. It's so valuable, in fact, that I'm probably going to get a tablet now that Asus has jumped into the game.
Okay, I have to get some sleep. Cheers, fellas. And Peace.
