My mom found this recipe in a magazine probably thirty years ago.  This recipe is AMAZING.  I don' t know exactly what sets it apart from other hot nachos recipes, but something does.  You won't find a better dish to take to a party - this is probably the dish for which I'm most often asked for the recipe.  They're called "Supper Nachos" because they are a meal.  They're a family favorite. by Shandle Ferguson

The Epiphany onE Puck - The device, roughly the size and shape of a hockey puck, is a small Stirling engine. This type of engine generates energy from temperature differences, and it’s been in use since the early 1800s. Efficient enough to completely charge a mobile phone, iPod or any other USB-charged device that draws 1000 mA or less with a cup of hot coffee or cold drink. by kathryn
