comment Are these coffee beans unroasted?
that's a great tip, Michael! i have resorted to roasting in my garage, but it takes a long time when it's cold for my poppers (yes, i have two i use, actually) to warm up to the roasting temperature. this might help, though -- i'll have to remember to try it.

comment Good breads for evening cooking?
sure - you mix together the flour, salt, yeast and water in a large container, and let it sit for a couple hours on your counter until it's risen to about double its original size. then, you can either use some dough right away, or (since it's easier to handle when its cold), put it in your fridge for at a day. then, on baking day, you cut off a grapefruit sized hunk, dust it with flour, quickly shape it, and let it sit while the oven preheats. then, you slash the top & bake! easy as pie. or, uh, bread.

comment Good breads for evening cooking?
yep -- came here to say that very same thing. the AB5 book changed my bread-bakin' life, lol. you can make enough dough for 4 loaves at a time. you just lop off a hunk when you need it, shape it, let it rise for about 20 mins, and bake. you can keep the dough in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, i think. it's awesome.

comment Can you put egg shells down the garbage disposal?
if you rinse them out and let them dry, i am sure someone with a compost pile would take them off your hands. i am just really leery of putting too much down a disposal, to be honest, plus they are so good for soil that it just seems silly to me to waste them that way. if you must, i would think grinding them up in a disposal would be ok.

comment What is the most effective way to extract mint flavor for a Mojito?
my recipe is rather old, and i vouch for it without question. i think potato/potahto in regards to muddling the lime or not - plenty of oils get in either way. as a clarification, i will note that the soda water added at the beginning is just a splash to help mash up the sugar & mint during muddling. by far the most soda is added at the end, as you say. fizz is important!

comment Ball Canning Jars: Use them over and over?
exactly this. i will also add that you can reuse the jars and the rings (the part that screw down) over and over, but you should always feel the rims of the jars before using them to make sure they are not chipped (which may affect the seal), and make sure the rings aren't rusty.
