Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 5:02 AM EST Dec 9, 2018 With the holiday rush under way, there's no time to ponder what's for dinner. That's why a sheet pan supper can be a big help at this time of year. If you're not familiar with the trend, allow me to introduce you. A sheet pan supper is smart and simple. You cook your main dish and veggies on one baking sheet so they're done at the same time. The key, of course, is choosing thin cuts of meat, poultry or fish and making sure that veggies are cut into small, even-sized pieces that will cook evenly. Today's sheet pan recipe is terrific for beginners. A center-cut salmon filet is cut into several individual pieces and placed to one side of a baking sheet. On the opposite side are your vegetables of choice. With this recipe, I choose zucchini and red onions. I like the way roasting both of them brings out their natural sugars and gives the dish a dash of sweetness. Of course, you can … [Read more...] about Try a sheet pan supper to reduce holiday stress
Dehydrating orange peel
Daniel Neman St. Louis Post-Dispatch Published 9:29 p.m. UTC Jul 11, 2018 It’s summer, and the sun is relentless, merciless, heartless. The air hangs heavy. Your shirt sticks to your back. Beads of sweat threaten to drip into your eyes. Air conditioning won’t help, and neither will a dip in a pool. Those cool you from the outside in, and you are so overheated you can only find sweet relief from the inside out. You need a ice pop. You can buy them at the store — that’s Popsicle with a capital P — and they are perfectly fine and you know exactly what you are getting. Or you can make an ice pop — and have something really exciting. They are easy to make, and fast; after all, all you’re doing is freezing some juice and sliding a stick into it. And when you make them yourself, you can add some yogurt or milk to give them an extra flavor boost. They are also inexpensive, although that depends on the kind of mold you use. You can get ice pop … [Read more...] about Cooling down with homemade ice pops
It seems like lately I’ve developed a habit of reviewing vehicles on the verge of being replaced by a brand new generation. And by habit, I mean one review. But it seemed fitting when the local Enterprise location handed me keys to a “Full Size” and it turned out to be the soon-to-depart, current-generation Nissan Altima. With a new Altima already unveiled, promising more/better/faster everything, is there anything to miss about the outgoing model? After a week living with one, I can definitely say there might be. Probably. Mid-trim Experience The chromed letters on the back of this particular Altima said “SV,” which puts it right in the middle of the Altima lineup. Starting with the S for just over $23,000, Altima tops out with the V6 SL trim at $33,630. An SV will set you back $25,910, though numerous options are available from both factory and dealer. This Altima had exactly one option: carpeted floor mats in the front and in the trunk ($235). Adding … [Read more...] about Rental Review: 2018 Nissan Altima SV, Farewell Thine Faithful Full-size

Posted by James Detmer on 09.06.12 Professional detailers hate the idea of imperfect paint – as they should. They see orange peel, which is quite literally when your paint is textured like the skin of an orange, and they want to correct it. This requires smoothing the surface by wet sanding through the clear coat and pigment layer. If you read our last piece on over polishing, you’ll know we’re not the biggest fans of invasive paintwork correction procedures. This article will cover how your car becomes riddled with orange peel, how to fix it, and why I don’t really consider it to be that big of a problem for the everyday car owner. What exactly is orange peel? Put simply, orange peel is a textured imperfection in a paint job. You can see it with your eye because the paint is wavy in a sense, and reflects light in different angles around the imperfection(s). The surface will appear bumpy and won’t reflect perfectly. Often times you will find orange peel … [Read more...] about What is Orange Peel? And How do You Fix it?
