I'm just wondering, what does it mean to "adapt" a recipe? This is the same, word for word, as the one in Food and Wine, which is itself adapted from a pastry chef's own recipe.

There was a stack of fence posts out on the curb in my neighborhood, and I didn't know what to do with more than one. So I took the one home and made it into a scratching post that my cat just adores. (Although it generates a little pile of wood dust every time she uses it.)

I took a panel of some kind of insulation (sorry, I'm not real well acquainted with the materials) and covered it with a panel curtain with a pretty print from Urban Outfitters. Then I nailed the panel (horizontally) to the wall.

This was pretty good. I added some green peas and strips of fresh red bell pepper. Next time I have some creme fraiche I'll try that instead of the ricotta, which was a little bland for my taste.

Delicious. It reminds me of a Swedish dish called Biff a la Lindstrom, with ground beef, chopped beets, and capers.

I added some worcestershire sauce to the mix and liked it.

Love the Anthropologie curtain, but is it still available? I can't find it on the website.

I *thought* that was a Sheila Pepe wall hanging! What a beautiful piece.

Four of the units in my building have had bedbugs since January. My upstairs neighbor has seriously lost her mind...After months of extermination, we (the condo association) just paid $5,000 to have those units heat treated - they come in with electric heaters and raise the indoor temperature to 160 degrees to kill the bugs and their eggs.

Do you live in a building with a property manager? You could ask them for a reference. Maybe the person (or company) that cleans your common spaces could take care of your apartment.

I have to take out the trash, make the bed, and do the dishes. And...lay a clean shirt on the bed. I'm superstitious!

Haven't bought plastic wrap in years. If I run out of tupperware containers, I put leftovers in a bowl and cover it with a plate or a cloth napkin. (I can see how it's useful for baked goods, but so is tinfoil.)

Another reason not to buy imported goods that you don't really need: the infestation of tree-eating beetles that is about to hit New England may have originated in a wooden crate from China. (On the other hand, for the same reason, I'm a little leery of bringing in baskets and such that I find on the street.)

Definitely the bedroom. By the time I go in there, I'm tired, and I just step out of my clothes and leave them on the floor, or maybe sling them onto the chair.

Wow - that historichouseparts has some purty hardware! Thanks!

I'm in Boston, which seems to be one of like six states that doesn't have a Hobby Lobby store.

I also love Madampince's suggestion--how come I never think of the easy solution?
