I needed to make chili for a contest. All my favorite recipes are packed in a box, somewhere. So, I looked up a recipe, which I’ve already lost the link to, to be sure I had the proportions right and winged it. I didn’t want to spend all night on it, so I parallel pipelinedContinue reading ““Hurry Up and Wait” Chili”
Bread, again Well… I tried the bread recipe from Brown-eyed Baker. As you can see, it was a bit non-standard. Having only one bread pan that’s not packed away, somewhere, I halved the recipe. Except for the water. So, I needed to double my halving of everything else. This recipe creates a LOT of breadContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch XXIII”
gogs is a “GO Git Server” that (supposedly) runs just about anywhere. It runs fine here. I wanted source control locally, and a bit more “control” than just a git init local directory. There were a few issues: I wanted the repository directory to be on a guest/host shared directory/folder (so Windows backups would getContinue reading “gogs up”
Blueberry Turnovers That is much better! I need to work on sealing – and getting them all the same size and shape. I needed at least seven; that’s just how the cutting worked out. Same dough recipe, but not halved. No extra water. No extra turns, but I did double-turn it by folding it intoContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch XXII”
Another Bread I get side-tracked on recipe sites. After finding Brown-eyed Baker, I was looking around and found a bread recipe. I still looking for something reliable and fluffy. (It can’t be me, right?) I’ll probably try it, tomorrow, but now it’s permanently linked, in case I don’t get to bread.
Strawberry Turnovers Fleet Farm sells very yummy dried strawberries. The turned biscuit experience had me thinking about pastry. Guess what! I made pastry: Strawberry turnovers. My Joy of Cooking is still packed, somewhere, so I turned to the Internet for a starting point. I found an apple turnover recipe that looked good at Brown-Eyed Baker.Continue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch”
Those count, right? Very non-stereo, but there is no room on the right side of my desk for one of those. There will be upstairs – I’m building it into the desk space; they’ll hang on each side of the monitor. As always, it was an adventure with a simple solution. Why do they alwaysContinue reading “Computer Speakers”
Pancakes count, right? I made Good Old Fashioned Pancakes (and I’m sad I’ve lost allrecipes.com, but auto-play video is unacceptable). I substituted egg nog for milk. The reason the post makes the Learning 2 Bake title is: Much as with cookies, viscosity is a key property of pancake batter! Although in reverse: One wants veryContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch”
Bread My bread collapsed, today. I think it was from having it on the stovetop while the oven preheated. I’ve had many successes with this recipe. I shorted the flour a bit for a moister dough, but it was still workable and it rose just fine before preheating the oven. We’ll see… Update: I’m changingContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch”
This is getting easier. Logstash is running and so is the Prometheus exporter for it. Kibana, on the other hand, is a nightmare. I can’t get it do anything other than spew security warnings. I made them go away – by adding “basic security” to Elasticsearch and Kibana – and it broke all the logstashes.Continue reading “Logstash Up”
