@Jamie310 that's funny, but don't your veggies go limp out of the crisper?

even easier than chopping all those olives? just buy a jar of kalamata olive tapenade, and mix with mayo (bonus: it turns a pretty purple color).

@SJINSF, i totally agree on the tea leaf salad at burma superstar. but my all time favorite salad is the chopped salad from cowboy ciao in scottsdale, arizona.

pearl couscous, arugula, dried corn, diced tomatoes, toasted pepitas, dried currants, smoked salmon... and some kind of sinful, creamy dressing.

this is really cool, however, I tend to be messy in the kitchen and I'd be so afraid of accidentally splashing it with something!

also, wax paper or a good coat of cooking spray (inside the pot, on the spatula and baking sheet) will make clean-up easy.

@asmallcontempt I'm having the exact same issue: everything is still crunchy!

additionally, I think that 1 tsp of oil is not nearly enough to coat the bottom of a 4-6 qt. dutch oven.

warm the sauce, and pour it over a bowl of dulce de leche ice cream with fresh strawberries. very easy, but very fancy and decadent.

I do this as well, I have no idea why. But then again, I also eat peanuts with the shells.

I recently moved and decided that I was NOT going to bring all my old issues of Bon Appetite. I went through ALL of them and tore out the pages containing recipes that I am likely to make, and I filed them in a 3 ring binder by season. It was a simple task that I was able to do while watching tv over a couple of evenings. I'm SO glad I did it, and it felt amazing to get rid of pounds and pounds of magazines!

Wonderful art! Adorable dog!

Question: the book shelves appear to have a portrait (deer head w/ antlers) hanging OVER them... how do you rig something like that?

bikes as decor? i'm not sure about that... more like practical storage for anyone who has ever had their bike stolen while it was outside (even with a lock!). don't get me wrong, my bike is parked right here next to my desk in the home office, but not by choice.
