I recently hosted a milk-and-cookies party for adults and served ginger/champagne cocktails (from allrecipes, I believe), Smitten Kitchen's milk punch, a coffee bar (with Kahlua and Bailey's available), and white and strawberry milk. Both the cocktails were big hits and went well with the sweet cookies.

If you are looking specifically for a jarred salsa that measures up, I would recommend the (Rick Bayless) Fontera salsas - few ingredients (all of which you would expect to see in a salsa). I have also had great luck with almost all of the recipes I have tried from Rick Bayless' various cookbooks (specifically, Cooking with Salsa and Mexican Every Day).

I love this space. Well done. But, did I really count at least eight fresh flower arrangements in five photos? That's some serious styling!

Brilliant. Your storage solutions make me realize that I actually could actually live in a smaller space! I am drooling over the media/storage cabinet. Well done.

I made this over the weekend and have really enjoyed it the last couple days. Not exactly like Northstar's (I assume that's the version you were trying to replicate), but really quite close. I guess that just gives me a reason to go to Northstar this week to see if I can figure out the difference and tweak the recipe next time I try it at home.

I would love it if anyone comes up with a similar recipe - the influenza sorbet is now out of stock at all three Jeni's locations (and I really could have used some this week!)

I vote for www.smittenkitchen.com. I really enjoy Deb's writing "voice," and I have had the best luck with the recipes she has featured.

I've had to talk myself down from ordering it several times already since David Lebovitz posted about it on his blog. It looks fantastic.

I have made two batches of the sour cherry frozen yogurt from David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop book, and highly recommend.

I made the vanilla the week my Food & Wine arrived. It was unbelievable - although not cheap to make with a whole vanilla bean.

Faith - This space is in the Yukon building in the Short North (the former Functional Furnishings space). It was part of last summer's Victorian Village home & garden tour.

Love this space, by the way. I've thought of it frequently (every time I consider downsizing) since seeing it on the tour last year.

I had sweet-and-sour chicken salad that I made from a recipe in Padma Lakshmi's recent cookbook, along with a slice of wheat toast and a granny smith apple.

These are fantastic and so easy to make. I took them to an informal dinner party this weekend, and they were a huge hit.

This is very similar to the trash can that was part of the Philippe Starck line for Target several years ago.
