Tiny bit of news

Well, at least a bit of good news. You can now download previous episodes! However, new episodes are still on hiatus. News as I have it.

Monday, 15 July 2013


Excuse my language but, well, fuck. The computer I mainly use to upload and store the podcast on has gone bye-bye. We think it is only the internal hard drive.  Thankfully, all the podcasts are stored in the backup on an external hard drive. The flip side is that right now I have no way to share the podcast on the Internet, as we host all the files. 

Bottom line is that until the computer is up and running, the podcast is going to have to be on hiatus. Unfortunately you won't even be able to load past episodes. Argh. Will keep everyone updated as I am able.

Mods to the above recipe:
  • decreased sugar to 1/3 cup
  • omitted the paprika
  • substituted soy sauce for the worchestershire sauce
  • added salt and pepper
  • used vegetable oil
  • grated the onion very finely (like mush)
  • used an immersion blender to mix the dressing very well
  • substituted lots of toasted pecans (350F for 5-7 min on a cookie sheet) for the almonds
