When I was using my cucumbers for salads, I just washed them with a sponge and they popped right off.

Be careful - there was a recall on the cast iron cookware with Martha's name on it because it was cheap and filled with air bubbles.

My boyfriend's mother does this but she scuffs them up with a fork instead, then roasts them in the lamb fat from the roast.

iSkin makes good stuff - i have used two of their ipod cases on an original and now on a nano ipod.

It's basically a silicon case with a hard plastic faceplate - assuming for the ipad it retains the touch sensitivity.

It's nice because the silicon is easily cleaned, and the faceplate can be Windex'd or whatever you need to keep it shiny!

Well, firstly are you sure they're FLAVORED and not SCENTED? Might be bath salts? Dunno.

I really enjoy brie, just so long as it doesn't TASTE like mildew I'm fine.

Onions, curry, heavy spices - I'm there! But head more towards gorgonzola or limburger - no thanks!

My mom used to eat this canned vegetable called SatSoy? DISGUSTING! Ew!

I have one of these from Ikea :)
It was something like $10 and it has little flowers punched out through the table itself. Cute.

I had to remove the door from my refridgerator in my apartment to get my Laundry machines installed, and it was extremely frustrating.

And yes, "smeg" always makes me giggle.

Would anyone like any toast?

See the problem with my apartment sans-microwave is that I live in Florida, and turning on the entire oven for two pieces of toast is not only time consuming but will ruin the electric bill when the AC has to kick in to cool the house back down. I have a toaster oven, but its much easier and much faster and much more economical just to put the bread in the damn toaster.

For fleas and roaches inside the home use Borax. Sprinkle it on your carpet, brush it in with a broom and let it sit for an hour or so. Then Vacuum thoroughly.

Be mindful that children or pets do not ingest this stuff though before you vacuum.

I agree. The jar looks gorgeous, but I would never eat it.

I always use heavy whipping cream and whip it until it goes to butter. Of course, the cream I get at the grocery store is crappy quality. But add a little honey after its done for honey butter - or add a little salt for salted butter.

Better yet, add herbs and make compound butter!! :D
