Penn Jillette’s Las Vegas Steak

On New Year’s Eve, I made this steak based on the description that Penn Jillette gave on an episode of Penn’s Sunday School. I surprised even myself when it came out so perfect and delicious! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did.

Updated site

I switched this site from Tumblr to a hosted instance of WordPress recently and I’m going to try to post a few times this year as a new year’s resolution for 2015.

Health Initiative 2015 is underway, but as a throwback to last year (before the diets of 2014) I will post a recipe for delicious steak based on Penn Jillette’s steak recipe.  Look for that in a few days.  In the mean time, please let me know if you have any questions, comments, ideas, etc. for the direction of this site.

Mac OSX 10.7 Lion problems

So when Lion came out last week, I went ahead and bought and downloaded it… I then spent 3 or 4 days trying to figure out why I couldn’t install it. I was also experiencing some problems with my installation of Snow Leopard and even trying to boot my known good Snow Leopard installer disk. The problems I was experiencing was that when booting up, it would completely freeze once everything came up and would sit like that for 5 minutes or so before I could start using it. Lion would not install stating only “An error has occurred, please run this program again later”

Only after I had been doing some searching for the errors that showed up in the installation log, I found a suggestion to try clearing the PRAM and NVRAM. I did that by turning on my Macbook Pro while holding down Option, Command, P, and R. And guess what, everything worked fine then.

So, my suggestion to any mac owners that are experiencing weird problems, reset your PRAM and NVRAM before you spend days searching for the answer like myself.
