    Unusual Uses for Vaseline

    I use Vaseline for sex. If I put it on the doorknob, my kids can't get in while we're screwing ;-P(It's an old joke, I know)

    Perfect French Fries

    You might think so, but they don't. It's pretty amazing. Let me know what you think of the results.

    We have different names, too. Steak fries and shoestring.

    Matt, this is a common method, but way more work than necessary for amazing fried potatoes. America's Test Kitchen will try hundreds of methods for a single recipe until they find the best and easiest method. They used to endorse a double fry method, but without the freezing, until recently. They discovered that if you put the potatoes into the oil while it's still cold, and then bring it up to temperature, it achieves the same double fry effect. Once they're golden brown, they're soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. My great aunt Cecilia knew this 50 years ago. Way easier and faster.

    La-z-boy Reclaimed

    Damn, I wish I had thought of that! I got rid of mine last summer because the material and stuffing were failing. Having an outdoor recliner would have been so cool. If I ever come across another, I'll snag it right up!
