Typing on my ’78 Clover 302

I love how light and portable this is. Not necessarily shown in the video, I can get some good rhythm and speed on this. I’m learning that these machines, more so than computer keyboards, really depend on the typist knowing proper typing technique to work at full speed.

Indulge those cravings

I am hooked on watching Kenji Lopez-Alt’s Youtube channel. He’s doing a series called “Kenji’s Home Cooking” where he uses a GoPro, worn on a head-mount to give an overhead perspective, as he cooks and narrates through the steps.  A few days ago he grilled bratwurst and sauerkraut, which inspired me to do the same. It’sContinue reading “Indulge those cravings”

My Clover 302, made in Korea

I picked up another typewriter. With two typewriters, I suppose I can now call myself a “collector”?

Please click through the artist’s Instagram postContinue reading “Regarding the image I used for Tuesday’s post”

This is just the (breakfast sandwich) beginning

I want to try the breakfast sandwiches from Camellia Coffee but, until then, I suppose experimenting with making my own will have to do. Earlier this week we had two brioche-style buns (leftover from weekend burgers) and inspiration hit me… While cooking two chicken-apple sausage patties, I generously buttered and toasted the buns on the same griddle. SoContinue reading “This is just the (breakfast sandwich) beginning”
