Kurt & Oz Making Ice Cream with Liquid Nitrogen

This afternoon Kurt and I experimented with liquid nitrogen, habanero-infused vanilla extract and coffee beans.

The video starts with the end of the coffee bean roasting. In order to get the beans to stop roasting and not get too bitter, they’re normally taken off the stove and dipped into an ice bath. Today, we poured liquid nitrogen on them. Kurt will deliver the taste test results later.

The ice cream was delicious. The habanero flavor was completely missing but the bourbon and vanilla flavors were nice.

We’re planning to do it again, folks!


Using Dummy Data in Excel. Also: Pivot Table and VLOOKUP

(It’s best to view this “Large” rather than the small default window”)

In this video we see an example of using dummy or bogus data. Often we get data sets that are hard to work with because it’s got Employee IDs, Part Numbers, or other strings of characters that aren’t easily comprehensible.

I show how I often convert data like this into names of fish. As part of the process, we see a pivot table and a VLOOKUP.

NOTE: my tutorials are still a bit crude. Hopefully they’re improving. 🙂

Oz Dragon Cookie Followup

This is follow-up to a recording that was interrupted by technical difficulties.
Just wanted to share that part of the Dragon Cookies mission is to bring maturity to the pleasure of eating the hottest peppers.

The interview can be seen at http://www.spreecast.com/events/dragon-cookies-live

There are a lot of pranksters and masochistic videos that overshadow the flavor and enjoyment of spicy foods. My invitation is that we pause and create opportunities to enjoy the gift of capsaicin. Please, Respect the Cookie.

Ghost Pepper Bourbon Infusion

This bourbon was rated as a “best value” so for $12 I got it to experiment with infusing ghost peppers.

This will sit for 48 hours and we;ll see what happens.

Stay hot, my friends
