their whole wheat tuscan pane is $2.99 for a giant loaf and, as far as packaged sliced bread goes, is the absolute best i've found anywhere. i don't go through it too quickly, so i just keep it in the freezer to take out as needed. so delicious!

Yes, not to mention cost savings! Costco sells black box pinot noir for $17. That is $4.25 per bottle! sure came in handly when I made sangria for a crowd.

Also... do you store your salad greens in a salad spinner? That is genius- why didn't I think of that?

It is an absolutely beautiful remodel... but I do not understand why you'd go through tearing down walls and creating all this new space when you're not even going to use it. Downgrading from 4 burners to 2... and no oven? I'm baffled.

this is very interesting. i keep meaning to get some food prep gloves.

japalenos never usually bother me. poblanos, however, kill my hands- but not my husbands! it's too funny, i find poblanos to be more mild than jalapenos.

anyone know the reasoning behind this?

the most recent "challenging" thing I made was guajillo chile salsa. I then simmered cubes of pork and potato in it. served it with homemade sopes.

it wasn't hard, but it was something i've never done before and something i've never eaten before. i was watching food network (actual cooking shows were on!)- and there was a mexican show where the host made it.

it was delicious! it was a bit of a pain to find dried guajillo chiles but it was so worth it when i did :)

just recently made what i would consider the best soup to ever come out of my kitchen. it was definitely a "stone soup" type- dirt cheap. cooked up a whole bag of pinto beans w/ garlic, bay leaf, salt and rosemary, pureed half, added the bean broth to sauteed onion, carrot, celery. then added the puree and the whole beans along with farro (or barley), cooked seperately. throw pureed and diced tomatoes in there and you're good to go!

What Is Your Favorite \"Stone Soup\"?

this is timely for me. i have a similar style containers by martha stewart. i've had them for about 1.5 years and they just started leaking somehow. curry soup stinking up my lunch bag. plus, they're VERY heavy! i take the train to work and have a bit of a walk so lugging a heavy bag is no fun.

i just made a big batch of soup and had a moment of genius- a mason jar. i was hesistant to use it at first, but i did and it was wonderful. tight seal, lighter than the alternative, effective use of vertical space and CHEAP! it is the most hipster thing i've ever done but it is life changing.
