Super easy to make and so delicious it should almost be criminal. This dish has the appearance that makes one think you spent hours… when in fact it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. Continue Reading →
My dad is an avid photographer from way back. Growing up, he even had a darkroom in the basement. Now, every time he and my mom visit he brings the camera and usually snaps off a couple shots of Camden – just for fun. Continue Reading →
The party is over. The house cleaned. Nicole and Greg have recovered. Mostly. Here are some early photos with more to follow we’re sure. There are a lot of photos, so be sure to check both pages. We are trying to track down some additional photos and videos – so if you have them… send them along. Continue Reading →
Finally got around to pushing into the website for this year’s BBQ. Prepping to cook a whole hog over wood on a spit gave me an idea to spin the famous line from the movie Clash of the Titans. I give you… www.releasethecracklins.com
The site contains all the information for the annual BBQ party at the end of this month. The page let me try out some new jQuery techniques and experiment with PNG24s. The sticky header and footer were easy enough to lock down but I never did get my main content DIV set up the way I had hoped. In the interest of time, I had to scramble and come up with adding thumbnails as section separators to help the box slide into proper position. I’ve still got one other navigation element to insert but its up for now.
I do think there are some issues with the top navigation elements. I think I may need to pull/copy the href attribute out the interior anchor and dupe it to the parent list item. I’ve noticed that if I click the edges the link doesn’t register. The toggleClass animation I wanted to try still works, but not the scrollTo hook. No bueno.
Created a new website to announce the date for Porkapolloza II: High on the Hog. You can check out the details over at releasethecracklins.com (moved to releasethecracklins.nicoleandgreg.net ).
My hope is to find some time to build out a quick site to post all the information on this year’s big BBQ party being held on Saturday, July 31st. Continue Reading →
Great Sunday supper dish that’s about the easiest thing in the world to make. Slow Cooker and bottle of beer. Plenty of time to drink the rest of the beer. Continue Reading →
