I'm happy to share all my recipes, though I tend to follow the "a little bit of this and a little bit of that" method of cooking (and even baking). As others have written, it's nice to be able to shar ...

Hi everyone, after a few months of lurking I'm back - for a very good cause: I'm bumping this thread up because I'll be in Paris in October with a friend, and both of us are vegetarians. I figured two ...

It's been ages since I posted, but my herbs really need help. I'm growing them in window boxes and containers in a screened balcony with lots of sunshine. Over the last few months, quite a few of them ...

bainst, I know there are a lot of first-time voters this election (which is great!) but weren't the lines pretty bad in 2000 and 04, too? For me, and I imagine that for madame as well, it's a strange ...

well now..for me, the images that I find difficult to comprehend are the long long lines of voters.

KYHeirloomer, it's not really a recipe, I just improvise with what I have. This is as close as I can make it to a recipe:

I'm more of a soup and salad girl. My favorite combination is mushroom barley soup and a green salad with a lemon vinaigrette. It can be made into a real (vegetarian) meal by adding some roast potatoe ...
