Nice. I had a hard time finding a scrap collecting pail that was compact enough to sit on my countertop but wide enough to scrape plates and pans into easily. Ended up going to my local restaurant supply shop and got a stainless steel steam table pan like this one: http://amzn.com/B001VZ6WGY for under $10.

Just started thinking about making my own bitters -- love the idea of blends based on cuisines, like the Creole bitters. For these types of blends, would you suggest making a separate infusion for each ingredient, then blending them, or just mixing all the ingredients and infusing them in a single batch?

I tried substituting garam masala for pumpkin pie spice one year, and never went back. It hits all the right "holiday" spice notes for me, but it's got a richer, more complex taste. Less cloyingly sweet, too — the pepper and coriander give it a nice little bite. I usually go with pre-blended mix — even the regular supermarkets seem to have it in their spice sections, though places with bulk spices tend to have fresher. Just harvested coriander from the garden, so I think I'll try blending my own and see how it turns out.

We just switched to a smaller microwave and installed it *under* the counter, in one of the lower cabinets. We used a cabinet with two drawers and a shelf, but it could also go on a shelf behind a door, if you don't want to see it when it's not in use. Just make sure you've got enough ventilation space!
