@ciddyguy-I loved City Kitchens, too....so sad that they closed. You can find these lovely teapots @ Uwajimaya! Yes, the colors are amazing. All the colors of the rainbow and then some.

Ooooo......this renovation is AWESOME. My washer/dryer in the kitchen, too. Wish my renovation 21 years ago looked like yours!

West Coast response, here. I can side with Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Vanilla,yum. Valrhona Le Noir Amer 71% Cacao dark bittersweet chocolate for baking; Valrhona cocoa powder for baking and the best hot chocolate...ever....purchased from the beloved World Spice Merchants in Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington. Bob's Red Mill for grains and flours......buy as local as you can! As for tomato paste, no salt added store brand from Fred Meyer works for me! Let the cooking and baking begin! Happy, happy holidays and a joyous New Year!

I fell in love with the shape(s) of these jars years ago, having purchased them from a local store. I use them for storage not for canning. Weck has canning supplies should one wish to use them for canning. The rubber ring keeps liquids from leaking, making transport of my salad dressings and soups for work possible. As for USDA testing.....I prefer the glass lid to traditional lids and rings. Hand wash the rubber seal and clips, pop the glass into the dishwasher! Stackable and wide mouthed, many utilize the same glass lid. I have used them to store homemade ice cream in the freezer. They make for a nice presentation...always receive positive comments about them.

query "tussie mussie" on the internet and you can find the language and meanings of herbs and flowers and create a bouquet specific to the recipient.

I love my turquoise Kikkerland timer. Occasionally, I have to tap it to get it to tick. I got mine at Anthropologie. I noticed them on the Velocity Art and Design website recently. What I'm really interested in is the dress form.....

One leftover can of pumpkin puree from Thanksgiving. 3 cups of flour sufficient; added bar of bittersweet chocolate.
After sampling TWO (texture amazing), added sprinkling of raw sugar. Just right!

Sigh....inherit one 1960 Rembrandt floor lamp from parents who were done with it...belonged to my grandmother....contained original lamp workings and not up to current standards...access fabulous lamp shop in town, have the whole thing reworked...salvage the SILK lampshade, fussing over it in the bathtub.... and voila!! en"light"ened object of family history. Worth every penny (many of them, I might add).

does anyone have a recommendation for a product to clean wood (other than just regular dusting). I have a nice stained oak piece and a REAL wood wall that I've never touched...fearful that I'd purchase the wrong product. thanks.

This recipe identical (except the addition of caraway)to my Grandmother's. I've eaten it for the last 50 years. Unfortunately, my attempts yesterday produced batter all over my oven, much to my dismay. Two loaves are now 1 1/4. Should have asked my mother to make them for me. Not enough flour or too much buttermilk and a telephone conversation does not make for a good loaf of bread. In the Celtic community, this bread is known as a railway cake. I think I'll bake it in another vessel next year. Thanks for sharing your photos.

yeah!!! thanks for including us here in Seattle. Weather's a bit cool today, bright blue sky. I'm off to collect some lids for my collection of quart jars to organize items in the pantry. I've requested the book from the local library...can't wait to get started. Organization was my New Year's resolution, minimalism my long term goal. I WILL be able to walk freely through this house!(at the end of the 8 weeks, of course).

I'm guessing '40's. "I spy" art deco pottery on the top of the cabinets that might be Abingdon Pottery, manufactured in Abingdon, Illinois, 1933-1950's. I wish the picture was clearer, too.
