I’m doing some quick market research in the realm of the kitchen to figure out what people’s most frustrating kitchen-related experiences are.
Take a quick minute and add your opinions below:
One of the true delights about having a blog is that I can write whatever I want, and you can decide to read (or not read) whatever you want. When I began “The Cooking Dish” I wanted to blog solely about cooking and my escapades in the kitchen, which I enjoy and I hope you enjoy. Now that I’ve been blogging since March 2009, I’ve made some great new friends and even more enemies–nah, just kidding about that enemies part; XOXO, I love you all–and I’ve realized that as fun as blogging about food is, I really want to share with you a lot more about my life than my cupboard, cutting boards, and sauté pans. I want to make The Cooking Dish more personalized, fun, and well-rounded than just recipes, and so I’ve created the “Chris in Real Life” category where you can find all sorts of bizarre things from my life outside the kitchen, monkey brains included. Of course, my main focus will always be cooking, but I hope you’ll excuse and even welcome my occasional indulgence to share other parts of my life with you.
So, I consider myself to be a fairly tech savvy when it comes to computers and such. I’m not the world’s greatest genius, but I’m not a bumbling idiot either (although after this week, I’m going to have to reconsider on the latter). Here’s the scoop.
This week I decided it was finally time to do a clean install of Snow Leopard on my iMac, and so I did. My computer was running super slow, bogged down by all the extraneous programs and junk it’s collected over these past 4 years or so. It’s now running super fast and all spiffy and sleek. But I’ve now found two problems, which for some really aren’t problems, but for me they are:
Problem 1) Snow Leopard and Adobe CS2 are not compatible. Oops. Guess I should have looked into this one before doing a new install.
Problem 2) Aperture 1.5x isn’t compatible with Snow Leopard either.
Hello everybody, I’m undergoing a few changes on this site to make it a little more user friendly and to help make a few things more accessible. I’m also redesigning it… Everything should still be functional during this time… but I apologize for any inconvenience and for any bizarre color schemes you may see during this transition period. During this time, you can subscribe to my RSS feed by clicking here. By subscribing to my feed, you’ll be the first to know of any new posts.
UPDATE: Please see this post: Never Do What I Did…
I’m one of those guys who finds conversion charts really handy–mainly because I haven’t taken the time to memorize them for easy reference. I’ve had the Cooking Conversions page posted for about a week now and I’ve gotten numerous requests to make a printable PDF version of it, so for your convenience, I’ve done that too. You can find it at the bottom of this post or on the Cooking Conversions page just under the Cooking References link in the top navigation.
