Small experimental batches of Jalapeno peppers to try new flavor combination's, we love the ginger and lime with pink peppercorns the best so far... also waiting for the fig tree to finish ripening and then it will be figs for days...

I have both, but to be honest I rarely use the mortar, it has become a decorative accent on a high shelf in the pantry but my Molcajete is in daily use and is hands down my second favorite kitchen tool right behind my 10" chefs knife...

ps. try to find one without legs it make using easier and also I cut a old Mouse pad to size to fit the bottom so it does not scratch my counter tops

So often you see a story about a Designer or Architect building their "Dream Home" and then it is on the market... How can a dream have a price tag, if you want to build a spec home and experiment then do that.... but I ask is the planning and the fantasy the best part and the reality a let down ???

There is no way I would voluntarily live with out an oven... I guess life in Prison would be a place I might not need an oven I would get a job in the Kitchen... I would however do with out the TV and get a small convection oven...we would starve with out our oven well with out our 3 ovens...

We were adopted by a amazing Baby Squirrel, a couple days before Ike Hit Houston, he was very dehydrated.. My Partner Rocky called and said he "was bringing home a surprise" and to get a box and put some towels in it?

You can imagine how surprised I was when it turned out to be a baby Squirrel and not a puppy...LOL, used a new printer ink refill syringe to give him a couple drops of water he perked right up.

After a little internet research and a trip to the pet store we were ready... feedings of Esbilac for puppy's every 2 hours sure keep me busy during the Hurricane and now 7 months later Cudjo is a beloved member of our family and we could not imagine life with out him, he lives in a huge cage and is free to come and go as he wishes, he plays with the dogs and my clients are thrilled at the time they spend with him......

I store almost everything in this type of jar... I may get some flack for this but I use a piece of cling wrap on each jar and then put the lid on, it is invisible and creates the air tight seal that will prevent pests and items like cookies from going stale...

My island has to be as large as possible, have a solid wood top aka Butcher block and open storage underneath for those huge stock pots and plenty of room for baskets of potato's, onions etc... but the most important would be evenly spaced electrical outlets all the way around, never have enough and it would make entertaining so much easier

In thinking about how to answer this question I decided that we are not doing with out as much as changing the timing of major purchases. Such as, instead of the Saarinen Dining Table - 60 in with a white marble top that I have been lusting after since oh about 1968, the 6K went to a new Apple Computer for work.
