    At least it's nice to have a DH who falls in love with a specific knife at Sur la Table. I agree it's important to pick your battles; my DH's way of handling such things was to talk me into getting...

    No, I never tried any. I tend not to make recipes from non-cookbooks but I'm not sure why. Maybe because by the time it occurs to me that I'd like to try one I can't remember where I saw it!

    The linen towels look very nice but are pricey. I saw these on Amazon and they look like they'd be excellent too, as well as being much less expensive. Reviews were glowing.

    Coming in late, but I have the La Rochère bee glassware in two sizes - the 12 oz. and the 8 oz. They're very sturdy and they're pretty, too. I've had them for a while now.
