I saw those glittered skulls in the October 07 issue of Martha Stewart Living. Kudos to you for actually doing it!

Is it just me, or are those bookshelves crooked? Maybe it's an optical illusion from the camera angle, but my, it looks frightening with all those heavy books....

I won't get into politics here, but from a pure design perspective, I find the Obama poster a lot more visually appealing than McCain's. The choice of colors and type treatment is a lot more sophisticated.

Hm, I have to try this! I usually like to braise daikon in soy, sugar, sake, and mirin. It's even better with pork belly!

This reminds me of those turkey injector infomercials, where they squeeze all manner of fillings into poulty, cakes, donuts, etc. Kind of nauseating..

Cake Flour. I always keep it in the box, but that makes it impossible to stick a measuring cup into it. Whether I try to pour it out or take the plastic bag out of the box, it always results in a mess!

I caved in and bought an expensive dishrack too, after way too much frustration and swearing at my old one. It's one of the best purchases I've ever made! It's the Simple Human "Wave" dishrack. I like it better than the Oxo, b/c the bottom of the rack is plastic with ridges, so you don't have to worry about your dishes slipping through.

I think it's less about "collecting" and more about hoarding food. Take me to a farmer's market and I'll try to buy everything (especially if there's seasonal produce), even if it's more than I could realistically eat.

Totally agree with MelissaLeigh. Food Network gets a big, fat thumbs down from me for whoring out all of their celebuchefs. I stopped watching it when it stopped being about food and started being about who's the new Food Network "face."

Mmm my mom used to make this for quick dinners or lunches. I think she may have added a little ketchup as well. We always ate this over rice.

Uh, is "Wallpaper your kitchen walls and ceiling with nausea-inducing yellow toile" one of her tips? I would feel so claustrophobic in there.

Oh my. Those are more unremarkable (and a lot larger) than what I was expecting. Are you supposed to chop those up before throwing them into the cookie recipe?

Actually, tingting's egg oatmeal reminds me of the canned corn soup with egg my mom would make for my sister and me before school. Sort of like egg drop soup, with corn.

I'm more interested on how this friend acquired all these chairs. Did they go all out on a DWR shopping spree? In which case, yeesh. Or were they inherited/lovingly collected over the years and your friend can't bear to part with them?

My mom didn't buy a whole lot of processed foods for us, but I do remember a very indulgent dessert she'd make for picnics and social gatherings. It was Jello vanilla pudding layered with graham crackers and cherry pie filling. Mmm sweet, soggy goodness. I also have fond memories of making dumplings and other Chinese goodies with my grandma.

My favorite mug is a pretty standard shape, but it's bright yellow, with Relakkuma, a Sanrio character, all over it. The color and cute bear always cheer me up! Even my housemate has noticed that I rarely drink out of any other mug (and we have lots), so when offering me some coffee, he asked "Where's your bear mug?"

I've made a couple recipes that have called for freezing the pan; most recently for madelienes. I'm not sure why they ask for this extra step... perhaps so the batter in contact with the pan won't brown as fast?

Oooh yum! I can't see a bowl of pho and NOT want to eat it right then and there. And I just had lunch too.. Sigh.
