Bar towels like the ones from Cooking.com are nice and absorbent, but they are not big enough. 17x20 is just not large enough to use as a proper side towel when cooking. You want something that can fold over an apron tie and still have enough length so that you can use it to grab a pot with it (without removing it from the apron string). 20x30 is about right.

Don't overthink it. Whatever problems you uncover underneath the paint are also fixable. Just scrape the paint off and see what's under there, then you'll know what needs to be done. Plus, if the wood is rotten, your landlord will feel more obligated to fix that problem than the peeling paint.

We got the Real Good barstools from Blu Dot and they were some of the most uncomfortable things I've ever sat in. On the plus side, they accepted the return with no hassle. Also, they've since started offering pads for them, which would probably help.

Hi, I'm David, who built the racks in this post. A number of you have expressed concern about two things that we considered before building. First, we were aware that exposing the wine to the light and changing temperature was not ideal for the wine. Second, we considered the regular (though almost always very minor) earthquakes.

1. In response to the recipe posted, 180 degrees internal temperature is probably too high. By that time, it's likely that the breast meat will have completely dried out. You're looking for an internal temperature of 165 or so (but make sure the breast and the thigh have gotten to at least that temperature).
