I've bought the Lifeway brand and, while it's not "fizzy" like a soda, it definitely has a sort of "zingy" feeling on my tongue.

Read this book in 2010 and really, really loved it. Learned all sorts of things about cheese and cheese selection--one of the best books I read last year!!

Ok, this may be a goofy answer, but I think I never have this problem because I make sure to use the largest bowl in my kitchen. The dough rises but never reaches the cloth.

Yes--when I lived in Austria my dog's vet prescribed the same cheese treatment for his swollen back leg. Worked great.

Probably try salsa first--I've got a few peppers growing the garden and two pots on the back porch. Also would love to try and make a sort of pesto with all this arugula I have--it actually came back from last year! I've almost got an arugula hedge....

I have all wood floors in my house and most of the rugs are very complicated persian-style, central asian--having one of these rugs would be a nice visual relief and so wonderful on the feet!

I am coming back to my garden after nearly three years of living overseas--it's a train wreck. I'm busy hand digging up all of the weeds, saving what survived, but have one question. There's too many weeds to just toss them in the trash--I'm talking probably when I'm done the equivalent of 30 trash bags of weeds--so what do I do with all of this green stuff? Can I mulch it? Thanks!
