Nerd Alert!

One of my dear friends loves to chime "Nerd alert!" in the same kind of sing-songy voice that you'd say, "Yoo hoo!" Sometimes I find myself parroting her, blurting out remarks in my best soprano.

This same friend -- a total brainiac Renaissance woman if ever there was one -- happens to love all things food and cooking, and she was gracious enough to share a very cool weblink with me, Cooking For Engineers. I'm as liberal arts as it gets, but this is a really interesting site, full of geekily obsessive information and some really fun recipes that I'm dying to try (check out the one for homemade marshmallows!).

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
