One of the main complaints I’ve heard about pressure cookers is that they make so much food. If you are part of a nuclear family unit, this is never a problem, but an overabundance of food can create both anxiety and palate fatigue for those of us that live in households of one. I feel this the most when I make soup.

With Australians starting to think about their next holiday and airline companies increasingly trying to squeeze every last dollar out of passengers, surely there's a way to make flying at least somewhat more bearable? If you can't afford a business class upgrade (because really, who can) and aren't holding out hope for a high-speed rail system, you can — and should — make the most of the one crumb of control left to you: your choice of seat.

I am passionate about porridge. I eat it every day and it is the king of breakfasts.

It is also a malleable breakfast. It's convenient. If your office or home has a microwave you are only five minutes away from a delicious hot meal that will sustain you until lunch and beyond.

I am a porridge samurai. I've been cooking porridge in a microwave practically every working day for the past three years. During this time I have sharpened my sword. Today I would like to share with you my techniques.

When I first heard about electric bikes, they struck me as the ultimate life hack. They allow you to commute relatively speedily without the hassle of public transportation, to get exercise without getting overly sweaty, to get from point A to point B without spending money on gas. As a longtime urban cyclist who’d sworn off bike commuting after a move put a sizable hill between me and the office, I wondered if electric bikes were the answer. I decided to find out.

For many of us, the act of sex is just as important as eating food. And yet, while we constantly seek out new and varied culinary experiences, we tend to stick to the basics when it comes to sexual intercourse. This is a mistake that you should definitely rectify.

One bit of joy from Apple’s October 2018 announcement—beyond USB-C finally arriving on the iPad Pro—was the way Apple handled the event invitations. Every single invitation Apple sent out had a unique piece of Apple art, beautiful remixes of its logo that are a must-see for Apple fans. And now, you can cycle through all 350+ images as part of a gorgeous screensaver for your Mac.

'All-wheel drive' and 'four-wheel drive' are often used interchangeably. In reality, they are very different vehicles and it depends on whether power is sent to the front or rear of a vehicle. Here's a professional rally driver explaining the difference between these two ever-more confused terms.

Potato skins are the weighted blankets of the food world—warm, comforting, and just heavy enough. And yet, we seem to have forgotten the appetiser that propelled TGI Friday’s into the global consciousness three decades ago. Potato skins—the bedrock of bowling alleys and dive bars—are an endangered species.

A lot of restaurants bring out bread “for the table,” but most of those restaurants do not bring enough butter for the amount of bread that is brought. Like only serving appetisers with an odd number of edible items, it’s unclear if they skimp on butter to create strife, or if it’s out of some sort of fiscal concern, but either way I don’t like it.

If you freeze your mince meat, this hack is for you. When it comes time to defrost your mince, there are a number of methods and not all of them are quick and convenient. A simple meat packing technique might be a little revolutionary and Reddit is letting everyone in on the secret.

I’ll be the first to say that patience is not my virtue. I move quickly through the world, and I often expect everyone else to be just as proactive and efficient—whether that means responding to emails within 24 hours, or, like, putting your credit card in the card reader while the cashier is scanning your groceries. (Come on, people! It goes so much faster that way!)

The World Health Organisation declared coronavirus, now known as COVID-19, a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) back in January 2020. Since then, the tally of infected has only risen. In Australia, only 22 cases have been confirmed, including those found to be infected on a cruise ship. If you're concerned you might be affected by the virus, however, a number of hotlines have been set up in addition to websites. Here are the numbers you can call.

My phone sits in the kitchen next to my wife’s, as I play on the floor with Ella, my two-year-old. My wife is upstairs supervising bath time for Layla, our 9-year-old. I don’t notice the phone vibrating on the quartz countertop, but in the space of 25 minutes, it has rung 13 times.

Google has quietly reinstated the ability to batch-create and import multiple contacts to your Google account at once. This time-saving feature was removed when Google began switching its mobile and web apps over to the material theme design last year, and Google didn’t announce its return. That’s a shame, as it’s pretty useful if you’re looking to batch-import a bunch of people into your Google account.
