    In a cooking rut? 'Try This.'

    "The 7" is off for the holiday but we wanted to give you a heads up about the new season of "Try This" from a voice that may be familiar to you! Cristina Quinn is back with a new audio corse. This time it's a look at how to make cooking more enjoyable. She begins by outlining how identifying parts of your personality outside the kitchen can set you up for success inside the kitchen.

    Cristina teams up with the Washington Post food team to uncover tips for identifying your kitchen personality. Food and dining editor Joe Yonan, food writer and recipe developer Aaron Hutcherson and recipes editor Becky Krystal discuss how to apply personality characteristics — like a tendency to tinker or an adherence to rules — to your cooking experience. The process can make preparing a meal more personalized and therefore more pleasurable.

    Find more than 10,000 recipes – sortable by cuisine, course and time it takes to cook – in The Post’s recipe finder. Try one of Cristina’s favorites, Simple Butter Chicken.

    Paul's Big Hat of Woo

    This month we look at planetary alignments and all those crazy notions that tsunamis or weightlessness might occur if the planets are in certain alignments, or something.


    Our question this month comes from Clemens Unger in Melbourne, Australia who helpfully suggested:

    If you’re looking for a topic to chat about in the show, how about the recent well publicised case of image theft in the Astro imaging community? A chap used a Damien Peach image and presented it as his own. But, as it’s a small world, Damien saw it by chance. There seems to be so much pressure on these days to show better and better images and that seems to overtake the fun of astronomy a bit for some and peer pressure is getting to some.
