I just use a big piece of Burlap and wrap it around the entire base of the tree! Cheap and rustic.

I use ground flax seed in my homemade meatballs! I find it helps keep the mixture together and results in a tender meatball at the same time.

The Bicycle Thief here in Halifax Nova Scotia makes this amazing salad, Radicchio & Savoy cabbage, warm garlic pancetta dressing, toasted pinenuts, grated parmigiano. So, so good :)

Looks great! We just finished 2 bathroom renovations in my 58 year old house, one we completely renovated from scratch and one we updated and they both look fantastic. The updated one was way easier on the pocketbook as well :) It's nice to see people working with what they have.

For my wedding favor I made homemade soaps! We had a destination wedding and not all of our family and friends could attend. So in order to give everyone a little special gift, I made coconut/lime scented soaps, they were a big hit and smelled fantastic.

My Mother always cut the entire tomato plant off to the root and hung it upside down in a warm/dry place in the house. We always get the last few extra tomato's ripened that way. Sad to see the tomato's go!

Quinoa salad (Cranberries, chickpeas, mint, lemon zest & juice, olive oil, coriander and s&p) with a side of grilled chicken. So good for lunch at the office.

@nnb I have had the Henckels Professional S series Santoku knife for over 4 years, and mine has done exactly what you described, the hollows are near the edge after sharpening over the years. It does still work perfect though, it doesn't interfere with anything you are doing. Hope this helps.

I would go for it! I have had a dark grey bedroom and now in another house the accent wall is Black with a lighter grey on the other walls. I love the dark colors especially with all the white moldings, white bedding and accessories it really pops.
