This is one of my favorite recipes of ALL TIME, although I have yet to try the salsa. The perfect combo of sweet and spicy and savory and cheesy.

You guys all seem smart--maybe you can help me. The dial on my water heater is set to hot and when I'm using the kitchen or bathroom sinks everything is great but my shower is awful.

I have to turn on the hot water all the way with a just a slight turn on the cold knob to start. 7 or 8 minutes later the cold is all the way off and the water coming out is chilly. However, if I turn on the hot water in my sink right after the shower it's just as hot as usual.

Any ideas? As to why this could be? I live in an apt. building so I don't know much about the plumbing.

Lestoil also works really well. Rub some into the paint as you would with any stain remover and then wash it.

You do have to wash the clothing by itself because Lestoil's so smelly, but you don't have to scrape anything so it's great for when you're dealing with a lot of paint.
