I've been to the Housewares Show at least 5 times. Very little changes from year to year. I missed it this year, but doubt I "missed" much.

I have a ridiculous amount of tea that I am trying to get through right now before any more comes in the door. My absolute favorite, though, is Dean and Deluca's Earl Grey Extra loose tea. It is to die for!

To each their own, but I do not like the "after". I thought the before looked great.

I have never cared for quinoa at all. So many tastier, textural options out there. Farro, barley, wheatberries. Guess I eat what I like, not what's trendy.

I pride myself on knowing my way around the kitchen. This was the second to worst meal I have ever made. I don't understand what I could have possible done wrong to deserve such an awful dish compared to other's experiences.

I couldn't disagree with this article more. I freeze most of this stuff all the time, especially rice and herbs.

The stigmas and stereotypes that you people have associated with these chairs are either laughable or disgusting, I can't decide. It's a chair. There isn't a certain class of people associated with the use of them. That's the same kind of thought that breeds racism, classism, and any other bigotry. My husband and I make a fine living. And we have an appreciation for design. But when a family picnic rolls around, these chairs (that came with the house) come out. Get over yourselves.

Just had my first taste of it this weekend. Not bad, but I don't know that I would make it a standby.

That scale is (was) made by Typhoon. I have it in black. They were having some financial trouble and I am not sure they are still around. Good luck!
