    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...

    Cheese is like wine; perhaps you have to have a nose for it. I'm never sure about my wine decisions; my husband left gallons and gallons of his red wine as well as some lovely white, but the contents...

    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!

    I thought Lunch in Paris was only so-so. I like her first book a lot better. This one didn't have as much of a trajectory because she's at a different place in her life, so although I enjoyed reading...

    I set mine at 75 or 76 when it's just me here. I mostly want it for the dehumidifying feature because it's very damp in southern NJ. But when my DS or DGD are here I set it a bit lower for them - not...

    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.

    I very much enjoyed The Shepherd's Life. We used to raise sheep ourselves so perhaps it was a bit more meaningful to me, but he was describing a way of life that's thousands of years old and it was...

    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.

    I stopped getting emails telling me that new replies had been posted to threads I was following. My settings seem to be the same and indicate that I should be getting them, but I'm not. What's up?
