How To Get The Best Sleep Of Your Life On An Airplane

“Navigating your way through clueless tourists, grabby TSA guards, and disinterested ticket counter clerks is only half the battle. Once you make it to your seat, you’ve still got an entire flight to endure. Your best airplane strategy is almost always to sleep through the entire ordeal, but how does one sleep effectively while fully clothed, sitting up, in the middle seat? It’s surprisingly easy with a bit of planning.” w/ photos

How To Make Crispy Green Beans

crispy-green-beans

When fresh green beans are cooked perfectly, you can taste their fleshiness and sweetness. I like my green beans fried in a tempura-style batter that’s light and fluffy. I use my SYD Hot rub to give it a little kick and you can serve it with some Ranch dressing on the side. This dish makes a great snack or appetizer entre. The fluffiness comes from combining cornstarch with flour and adding some baking powder to make the batter crispy. The sugar adds a very slight sweet note to enhance the flavor of the beans. The egg yolk helps to bind the ingredients together and gives the batter an appetizingly nice yellow color.” w/ photos

How To Make Light & Tender Cream Biscuits

tender-cream-biscuits

“These were the thoughts that went through my head as I entered a third round of biscuit-making and recipe testing, after first tackling flaky biscuits and drop biscuits. But my doubts about whether cream-only biscuits could measure up to their butter-rich counterparts were shattered once I took my first bite. The cream biscuits were light and tender with a rich, milky flavor. They formed a delicately thin crust that contained an almost downy-like interior. I could go on, but the biscuits are blushing.” w/ photos

“Some days are great, better than you would have expected when you rolled out of the bed in the morning. Quite a few days are just good and OK days. And then we have the other ones. The days that just wind up being bad. What do you do then? I used to let them drag me down and I often wound up having not just one but a couple of bad days because of whatever happened. Nowadays I do things a bit differently. I follow four general steps that I use to change my thoughts and how I feel if I find myself starting to have a bad day. And I’d like to share those steps today.” w/ photos

“…what’s not to adore about a heaping plate of golden brown and extra crispy potatoes? The answer is nothing. Seriously, I’ve yet to encounter anyone who truly hates hash browns, and if I ever run into such a person, I will let you all know (and properly scold them, too). Hash browns are a staple of basically all worthy American breakfast menus, from barebones diners and fast food joints to lavish breakfast buffets and continental spreads… Which raises the question: how do you make great shredded hash browns?” w/ photos

How To Make Watermelon Sticks

watermelon-sticks

An apple corer is a great kitchen tool. This Instructable applies one to a watermelon, but a corer also allows serving various other fruits or vegetables in an original way… The cumulative mass of the sticks amounts to approximately 70% of the initial weight on the watermelon slice (dependent on the space that is left in between the holes). The leftover part with the holes is perfectly fit for human consumption: don’t waste it.” w/ photos
