I had limited success, but I probably just needed to use more bread a la this.

Really lovely...the cabinetry, the marble countertops, lighting ...but that FLOOR!!! *heart skips a beat* The hand-scraped wide plank hardwood floor is the real beauty for me

Was there a worthwhile comment you wanted to share, username26? Or was the only point to assert some ideology?

Nevermind, indeed. You should've taken it somewehere else. The post was not about food politics.

Croque Monsieur and Foie Gras Macarons

I would loooooove a croque monsieur right about now.

Macarons...exquisite! Foie gras...sublime (with a rustic artisanal bread, cornichons, and don't forget the wine). Together? Oh hell no. Meats do not make dessert in my book.

The side table appears to be very similiar to, if not the same as, the Byron Twig Table from Jayson Home and Garden

I didn't particularly feel like cooking one night so after glancing in my (at that time, nearly empty) fridge, I spied a few things to throw together. It was an hors d'oeuvres dinner: whole grain cracker rounds spread with mascarpone cheese, topped with a dab of homemade fig jam and a touch of fleur du sel.

I can see myself forgetting to swivel it back up against the wall. Later, as I round the corner, I'll get smacked in the face by the artwork.

I'm crushing on all of the designs, but especially the dining room in #1.

Hinke, thanks for posting that link. It's exactly what I've be looking for!

omg, beets...any time, any way, any place! A summer favorite is cold beet soup, with diced cooked beets, hard boiled eggs, pickles, and minced dill in a buttermilk base. Sounds kinda odd, I know, but my family's eastern european (lithuanian/estonian) so we have all sorts of seemingly odd dishes. Serve the soup with piping hot boiled potatoes. Mmmmn. That's bliss right there.

Another mess that originated from the kitchen....I was asked to carry a large serving bowl of mashed potatoes to the dining room table. Not surprisingly, I managed to trip over absolutely nothing which sent the bowl in a whirl, emptying its contents onto the walls and ceiling with a Jackson Pollock-esque splatter effect.

Ummm, yeah. That's a definite "no" to the bed.

oops, sorry 'bout that. I saw the word "tufted" and just went into one-track mind mode. You were looking for something with straight arms.

Another tufted sofa from Macy's is the Chloe (I have it in granite). Bought it on sale back in April. Besides the tufted back, the sloped-arms totally reeled me. :)
