lotusmoss - that sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing. We do veggie black-eyed peas and collards in my family, too, and I'm always looking for new ideas.

I have wallpaper in the kitchen (apartment complex's idea, not mine). At least it's a fairly neutral, unobtrusive color, but I can't wait to move into my next apartment, where they actually let you paint the walls!

I love the walnut-plum - it's the best yogurt I've ever had. I get it at Whole Foods and our local co-op.

This is a beautiful mug by one of my favorite sellers. (And I don't think there's anything wrong in having a few special items in the kitchen, even if they're not multifunctional - they're what give a home character!)

The November issue of Fine Cooking has an article about persimmons with a few recipes:

This looks fantastic - I want to take a spoon to the olive salad!

I first used raw shallots in a warm chickpea salad from Orangette (by way of a few other folks) and it's just wonderful - as you said, mild but still nice and oniony.

I have a pretty charmless apartment kitchen and a window is something I just covet. Next place, maybe!

After reading this article this morning I thought I'd like to order some - lo and behold, when I went to get lunch from the local fancy food market there were bottles of Savannah Bee Company Tupelo honey for sale! I splurged and bought a 12 oz. bottle for a bit less than the web price. I can't wait to try it.

I was thinking about OCD, too, but with admiration. :) I love good organization.

These are lovely - the teapot especially. It's the mishmash of handmade items I love; that's what makes kitchens so inviting.

This kitchen is just about perfect. I love how clean and simple it is, without looking sparse or severe. And the lunch menu looks delicious!

I love toast and will eat it any time. Our local co-op has a great bakery and they make wonderful loaf breads - sunflower seed, oatmeal, and my favorite, a yeasted cornmeal. This bread is perfect with just about everything: butter, honey, apricot jam, tomato soup...

I just got this book and already have dozens of recipes I want to try! (It also spurred another big Rancho Gordo purchase...) Thanks for highlighting it; they are such a great company.

To thinkingwoman - I had the same problem when I received a friendship bread starter. I just left the pudding out altogether and it turned out fine; I think I even subbed in some whole wheat flour with no ill effects. (It's been a while since I made it so I can't remember exactly what I did!)

I used to eat them quite often, but I've been cooking with more whole foods lately and so try to avoid fake meat. That being said, I do get cravings for veggie corn dogs and Tofurky! I think they're okay as occasional treats but they don't comprise a big part of my diet.
