I had an old refrigerator with a curved top like that and lost a big bottle of Grand Marnier when it slipped right off the side. Beautiful table, but not for cocktails.

Apparently the perfect tuna salad is a very personal thing. I applaud Emma for even broaching this topic.

We've been in our 2 bdrm Noe Valley (SF) apartment for many years and currently pay $1300 a month. The same apartment upstairs (altho with new wood floors) rents for $2600. Thank you, Rent Control!

Just returned from Charleston and must say that the pimento cheese at Husk was a highlight of the trip, among many others. I'll be making some this weekend.

I loooved Peg Bracken's I Hate to Cookbook, especially the parts where she suggests getting those fabulous brownies from the corner bakery instead of making them yourself. Well, that and the martinis.

Hmmm, that waterfall console? Reminds me of an old refrigerator I had with "rounded" top edges, off of which slipped a full bottle of Grande Marnier. A terrible loss that was also a terrible mess to clean up.

Had a potato explode just the other day as I was taking it out of the oven (I had on an oven mitt, thank goodness). I salvaged most of the potato, but had to clean the oven. Ugh.

A simplified Persian Kalam Polo -- white rice layered with chopped cabbage which has been sauteed in butter. Add a little torshi (pickled veg) and sabzi khordan (fresh herb salad) on the side and it's a meal.

Just coming off a bad bug but made it through with Heidi Swanson's Baby Lima Soup with Chipotle Broth. I used some cooked flageolet beans that were on hold in my refrigerator so this was quick, easy, and spirited. I've also used canned and frozen beans. The chipotle broth is the key.

Many many years ago I saw Joan Rivers in Las Vegas and she joked about tying sponges to her infant daughter's knees, then throwing her stuffed toy across the kitchen.

One day after work feeling snffly, I picked up Moonstruck. Good think I loved it because I ended up with the worst case of flu in my life. Thankfully I was strong enough to work the remote control. Must have watched that movie 10 times. I still love it.

After a crazy commute home from work in the evening (two trains and a bus), cooking alone is my meditation. The simple act of putting on an apron and pouring a glass of wine is transformative.

Halibut simmered in a putanesca sauce is delicious. Use what's in your pantry -- chopped tomatoes, capers, black olives plus some chopped garlic and fresh parsley.

Uh oh, my heart beat is apparently slower than the beat in this piece of music. This almost makes me hyperventilate. Almost, I said.

I loved being the hired help when I was in college. It was like being a hostess but without the angst and aggravation -- or having to pick up the bill.
