Last Monday, the bulk of the KWLUG after-meeting at Zeke's was spent 
exchanging recipes.  At our end of the table, anyway.  I suspect this is 
a welcome announcement for many of the members on this list.

I heard Jeff Potter on the Science Friday podcast a few weeks ago: 
http://www.sciencefriday.com/program/archives/201008062  Fascinating 
stuff.  Did you know that the self-cleaning cycle on an oven heats it to 
about 550C, which can cook a pizza in about 45 seconds?  But you have to 
destroy the door locking mechanism to get the pizza out.
