Turn Handwritten Recipes into Family Heirlooms with These Keepsake Gifts

No one said family recipes had to stay on index cards. Transform them into memorable gifts that’ll be passed down for generations. Personalized gifts are one of the most thoughtful ways to honor your loved ones during the holidays. Whether it’s Mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies or Grandma’s flaky biscuits and gravy, the family recipe box is a great place to turn to keep family traditions alive. Shopping for unique gifts can be tough, but these personalized handwritten recipe gifts are some of the best options we found to order this holiday season. Whether you’re a professional chef or a home baker, tea towels are a kitchen staple. While a kitchen towel is usually made of terry cloth, a tea towel is known for its thin cotton or linen material, keeping dishes and silverware lint-free. Etsy seller BlueMountainBags can personalize a flour sack towel to feature your chosen handwritten recipe. Flour sack towels are sturdier tea towels (measuring 27 x 27 inches) that are made from 100% premium cotton fabric. If you’re struggling to choose just one recipe, you may want to consider getting a pack of 10, which allows up to 3 recipes per order. Recipe ...

The SEMA Show is the place to be when it comes to discovering the latest innovations

The SEMA Show is the place to be when it comes to discovering the latest innovations in automotive paint and fabrication products. We spent three days at SEMA, finding the newest products in paint, body fillers, and tools. We even checked out what’s happening in paint trends. The big news is companies are making it easier to get great results, improving products, and removing some of the Murphy’s Law influences that can affect the paint and fabrication we do in our home shops. One of the biggest uncertainties when using body filler is how long it needs to cure before sanding. Normally, the method of finding an answer is to sand a little and see if the sanding debris looks like powder. Evercoat’s new Optex fillers make it easier to tell if the product is cured — before sanding. Optex body filler and putty products change color when cured. The filler starts out pink, then turns green, letting you know the repair area is catalyzed correctly and ready to sand. Evercoat’s new Optex body filler is a premium filler that changes color once it’s fully cured. It starts out pink. Once it turns green, it’s ready to sand. This product comes in a variety of sizes: one gallon (#100135), three...

On Monday night, Nov. 18, the Mid-Coast Trolley project reached a significant milestone when crews conducted

On Monday night, Nov. 18, the Mid-Coast Trolley project reached a significant milestone when crews conducted the largest concrete pour of the project to date. 650 cubic yards of concrete were used to form the 670-foot-long deck of the future Trolley freeway overcrossing south of Nobel Drive, one of two points where the Trolley crosses Interstate 5. The work required a full freeway closure of northbound I-5 and lane reductions on southbound I-5. Crews worked steadily through the night to complete the pour ahead of schedule, allowing the freeway to reopen hours earlier than expected. Monday night’s work over I-5 was the final concrete deck pour along the elevated Trolley guideway that runs through the La Jolla and University community areas. The remaining concrete pours on the project will be much smaller in scale. The Mid-Coast Trolley project represents a $2.17 billion investment to expand the regional transit network. Funding for the project is made possible with funds from TransNet, the half-cent sales tax dedicated to transportation projects. TransNet will fund 52 percent of the project, with the remaining funding being provided by a grant from the Federal Transit Administrat...

Research at the University of Nottingham over the past decade has been inspired by a knowledge

Research at the University of Nottingham over the past decade has been inspired by a knowledge of food industry needs combined with learning from parallel industries, such as paper/pulp and textiles. For some time the food industry has been calling for ‘natural’ ‘minimally processed’ ingredients. Cellulose is the most abundant polymer on planet earth and is the major structural material in the composite structures which comprise the cell walls of land and ocean plants; it is also exuded by some bacteria. The paper/pulp industry has functionalised cellulose from such sources through innovations in processing, e.g. steam explosion or homogenisation, to create fibrous material to enhance structuring properties. The textile industry has pioneered the ‘regeneration’ of cellulose into fibres and sheets through the use of solvent/anti-solvent technologies, which are clean and green, and create pharmaceutical grade materials. The question therefore is can the food industry benefit from such insights and enable the use of a material that is ordinarily insoluble and inert? The obvious outcome would be to use cellulose to replace the structuring capabilities of highly refined h...

Surface Pro X review: A perfect PC but only in the right hands

The Microsoft Surface Pro X is the first stab at the new Windows 10 on ARM platform. While Microsoft has done Windows ARM devices before (see Surface RT), this time the company is offering a more satisfying vision. So, is the Surface Pro X a hit or a miss? Like all things, there is nuance. Built for “tech-forward mobile workers,” the Pro X is undoubtedly divisive. For the right audience, the Pro X will be everything they need in modern portable PC. For most, they are better served with Surface Pro 7. All-day battery, a slick new design, a super clever pen that hides away, large display, and always-connected 4G LTE make Surface Pro X a class all its own. But do you need one or just want one? I’ve spent the last ten days with the Surface Pro X. Here is what I like, what needs work, who should not buy it, and why I actually prefer the Surface Pro X overall. Bottom line: The Surface Pro X will be the perfect laptop for some users, but many will be better served with a Surface Pro 7. The Microsoft SQ1 ARM-based processor and GPU is faster than expected — rivaling a Core i5. The nuance around what apps work and the lack of gaming will be off-putting for some buyers, ...
