Recipe writers approach kitchen time with a stopwatch. The Times ' scone recipe, as written, claimed to take 45 minutes. Once you subtract out the (fictitiously shortened) onion-cooking time, the one-minute caraway-seed-toasting time, the 15-to-17 minute baking time, and the 10-minute cooling time, that leaves the cook seven to nine minutes in the middle to mix the dough (including grating frozen butter into it), shape it, cut it into scones, and lay the scones out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Oh, and somewhere in there, the onions needed to "cool completely." Isn't home baking soothing?
Hi, I recently did something very stupid. I sprayed raid in the wall around a pipe and inside a fixture attached to the wall and have had the raid smell and some VOC symptoms for 45 days now. I sprayed in my kitchen but somehow the raid fumes/odors made their way to an upstairs bedroom, how long would this off gas? I sprayed a few times not a large quantity, it feels like I am more sensitive now. I am using fans, and have had the windows open for a month now. I really dont want to break into the walls and remove the drywall where I sprayed around the drain pipe. The asbestos might be something thats in the walls so I am trying the ventilation approach first. Thanks for having a forum like this!
