    The first time I cook a recipe I follow it to the letter, else you can't really say that you have cooked it because ... the recipe. The second time I will try some minor changes, the third and beyond I make it mine. Some of my best creations started out of someone else's recipe. I am not a...

    Sounds a lot like the batter used for a simple peach cobbler; one cup each of flour, milk, and sugar. Melt a stick of butter in a 9x13 cake pan in the oven (@350F), dump a large can of sliced peaches in heavy syrup into the butter, pour the batter over all, back at 350F until golden brown.

    Flour, egg, bread crumbs or seasoned flour. Dredge the meat in flour, then dip in beaten egg, then dredge in the bread crumbs or seasoned flour. If you want a thicker breading or better coverage repeat the egg and bread crumbs/seasoned flour steps. Unless you are looking for something like a...

    Custom build for Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit

    Microsoft technically does still support Win7m but only in special cases and it ain't free. I work with retail POS systems and they pay for the continued support but we are working on getting the stores to upgrade to 10.

    I'm paying 75 for 200/10. My ISP just doubled the DL for "free" recently, but had bumped up the price from 70 to 75 about six or seven months ago. 62 for 100/20 is a good price to me.

    It's too cold for that. But seriously, what could the governor do about it? At least at the moment? After this is over I am sure there will be some serious discussion about what went wrong and how to prevent it from happening again.

    I make mine with diced onion (cooked with the meat), ketchup, mustard, garlic powder, black pepper. Maybe some diced green pepper in with the onions if I have any on hand. I always forget the Worcestershire, and have never used brown sugar or honey in mine. I have also used crushed tomatoes...

    Rubs are just that... rubs, not pastes. Usually a rub is a mixture of dry ingredients that is rubbed or patted onto the meat. Some people use a binder, like mustard or mayo, on the meat itself to better hold the rub. As to what goes into a rub the sky is the limit. I've seen them based on brown...

    I received an email from my ISP (Spectrum) Friday. But it turned out to be good news. Our internet speed has been doubled for no additional charge, from 100 to 200. They went up $5 about six months ago so I look at it as them finally justifying it. Anyway, the email said that my current hardware...

    She will go for another test in a few days. Her symptoms are not too bad, as in no breathing difficulty and a minor cough. Hers is more body aches, fatigue, sinus congestion, and such. Apparently the asian variety.

    Graphics Card (Dual Monitor Support)?

    Yes. Almost all graphics cards have at least two outputs and all of them are capable of doing this. I even have an old PCI Matrox card in a drawer whose sole purpose is to allow two monitors.

    Definitely take a good look at the Ryzen CPUs. I will totally admit that I am an AMD guy but the Ryzen line has been awesome, and the 5000 series are even better. I am currently running a 3600X with a RX 5700 XT and wouldn't be afraid to tackle any game on the market.
