1. in chili

2. in chocolate guinness cake, or in a milkshake (young's chocolate stout with ice cream... yum)

3. for braised meats, especially belgian beers like chimay.

i made these cookies last night as a component of a dish I made for World Nutella Day, and they were great - the texture is perfect.

The inside of the pod is vile! But god bless the people who figured out how to manipulate the cacao guts to give us chocolate.

flank-steck fajitas with peppers and onions. we just got a whole bunch of dried chiles, so i think we're going to try and making a spicy 3-chile paste for the meat.

cream biscuits with fresh sage sound *amazing*.

I also have the gas range / electric oven combo and I love it (it came with my apartment, so I just lucked out). I much prefer cooking with gas, even though electric cooktops have come a long way, and can still get the heat benefits of the electric oven. I think mine is a GE? Or maybe a Frigidaire.

Double chocolate layer cake, hands down. The batter is incredibly liquid and it bakes forever at a really low temperature, and it's the most amazing chocolate cake ever. Ever. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/101275

Second runner up: gingerbread stout cake.

I love me me some bacon, but I don't know about bacon salt. I *do* know about farro, which is my new favorite grain ever since I had the farro risotto at Perilla last month. I tried to re-create it, with mixed results...

Thanks for the great comments, everyone!

Answers to questions:

The bookshelf in the puppy reading nook is from West Elm, but I don't know if they make it anymore.

The revolving book rack in the living room was found on the street a few years ago on garbage night, rescued and cleaned up.

The lighting fixture in the living room (which we put in after doing most of the rest of the room) makes sense in context (I hope); unfortunately it's an oddly shaped room that's hard to photograph as a whole. It also gets so much light through our giant windows that a lot of the color is actually washed out in the photo.

Also, hi Robin!

As the owner of the home, thanks for all the great comments so far. I just wanted to jump in and calm everyone down about the windows over the bed. They are pretty heavy, but VERY well anchored to the walls. I hung each one with several L-brackets all around the frames so they're solidly hung, but the brackets aren't clearly visible from the room. I wouldn't worry too much about them falling on our heads. And I'm overly-cautious about everything.

Additionally, we also love to snorgle our two furbabies (one of whom did not end up in the photos).
