Featured Images at a Blog Near You

You may not have noticed if you don’t read this website by visiting the site, but I have added featured images on the homepage. I’m here to tell you that it’s a rather large deal.

Featured Images

In fact, I think I might have solved a greater issue I’ve had with images and this website. Way back when, in 2010 when I installed WordPress as my CMS, I was happy to have a better system than my home-brew chunk of…

April Fools Prank with a Raspberry Pi

April Fools Prank with a Raspberry Pi

So I have this idea for a April Fool’s day prank using my Raspberry Pi and for the most part, it’s completely possible.

Background

I work in an open office space and everyone can see what everyone else is doing on their computers. Some people sit on Facebook in their downtime, others look at cars, and one uses Pinterist. But everyone, and I mean everyone, reads the news. For the most part, they…

Rust Magazine

I don’t think it’s much of a secret, but I’m not overly enthusiastic about the translation business. It’s not what I see myself doing for the rest of my life but for now it pays the bills. I’m okay with that.

That being said, I’m constantly looking for ways for me to advance my career in a different direction. I think of hair brained schemes, I email strangers out of the blue, creep job boards,…

Hot Yellow Pepper Casserole

Hot Yellow Pepper Casserole

I just made this awesome dish and I didn’t document it. I’m not even sure what kind of peppers I used, but damn is it good.

Sometimes things like this happen. You’re in the kitchen and you don’t really have a recipe but you know the taste you’re trying to achieve. For this one, I wanted a Mexican tasting pepper dish with a little heat. That’s exactly what I got.

I had a process in mind and I…

Pulled Pork

There comes a point in everyone’s life where they need to see if a crock pot is meant for them. Some people, myself included, relish in the idea of throwing everything into one pot and leaving it to cook for the day. Others consider that notion and debate if the result is really highbrow enough or whether it will look pretty once all the flavors have melded into a muddled version of their former…

Broccoli Cheese Patties

I used to be a lot pickier when it came to eating than I am now. I used to gag when I put mashed potatoes in my mouth and I’d reach as quickly as I could for my glass of milk to wash them down. Beets weren’t any better, but I’ve come a long way. Everything grew on my and my palate grew accustomed to the different tastes and textures and I started to look forward to dishes I once turned my nose up…
