Re: Cooking

Made two things tonight: 1. another pot of chili, this time using Progresso tomato soup instead of canned tomatoes because I found out I didn't have any canned tomatoes; I also added a few ounces of 100% cacao which made it amazing 2. ginger ale syrup , with cardamom and lemon and lime. I didn't use...

Re: My Life

Yeah, if 5mg of XR still has the cumulative effect problem I'll ask about trying IR. Although when that comes I'll also need to do it with a different doctor, and this is going to be supremely annoying.

Re: My Life

Before Adderall I was trying Concerta and it didn't actually do anything for my focus, it just made me irritable and unable to sleep. I think these meds have a tendency to stay in my system a lot longer than expected, too, which is probably why it took a week and a half for the BP spike to become no...

Re: My Life

I was taking 10mg/day (XR) and my blood pressure increased over time, and I noticed things were very wrong when it got up to 160/100, which is when I stopped taking it and sent a note to my doctor. The next day the nurse said that given that experience I really should have gone to the ER. :P

Re: My Life

so adderall raised my blood pressure to dangerous levels. Bleh. Gonna try a lower dose starting this week to see if that helps without nearly putting me in the hospital, but soon I need to find new doctors because I’ll be starting the new job and their health insurance options don’t include the HMO ...

Re: Cooking

I did a followup video comparing my 1800W induction hotplate against the same 1300W kettle, and this time the margin of victory was way less clear: 72zGmtNauwU The induction hotplate had a 40% power advantage but it only got a 20% time advantage, showing much more closely how inefficient induction i...

Re: Cooking

Nice. I used to have a popcorn air popper which I bought with the intention of experimenting with single-cup roasting, but I never got around to finding a source of green beans. I have a few different grinders; the two I use the most are a shitty Krups electric burr grinder (which I found at the thr...

Re: Cooking

It mostly makes the process less messy and error-prone. Coffee doesn't leak out the bottom while brewing or out the sides while extracting. It also has a reusable metal filter, which I use in tandem with the regular paper filters. It also increases the pressure very slightly which may or may not imp...

Re: Cooking

I mostly do pour-over if I'm making coffee at home, generally from freshly ground beans. We also have an aeropress and a nanopresso, but I'm lazy and there's less to wash up with pour-over so it generally wins for me. I've cut way back on coffee though because it generally makes me feel terrible if...

Re: Cooking

On the note of coffee, what's everyone's favorite brewing approach? My approaches, from most to least favored Cold brew concentrate, diluted with hot or cold water (this has the best flavor to me, but it tends to be way higher in caffeine so I have to do it sparingly) Espresso-based (when I'm at a c...

Re: Cooking

I mean in the video I posted above, I literally show my electric kettle, and how much slower it is than my stove, because kettles are 120V and stoves are 240V. Plus, Americans are more into coffee, so we tend to have drip coffee pots instead. (I do not have one of those. I love coffee but I use kett...

Anyway. I don't have Excel handy but I think I have an Office 2011 license hanging around somewhere. But I'll just be content to watch the youtube video for now.

Re: Cooking

Actually I take it back, the cooktop DOES get that loud in power boost mode. However you only rarely use that, like when making tea. Most of the time it’ll be at a much lower power level and then it’s pretty quiet.

Re: Cooking

What was the problem with picking pans up? On every induction stove I've used it only shuts off the coil while the pan is off the surface, when the burner wouldn't be heating it anyway. I guess the beep can be slightly annoying but you get used to it :)
