Linda, once again your recap is spot on! ;)

Anyone thought about selling their homemade dishes or pastry? Does it need any license?

And, town/municipality to town/municipality.

It's a fine needle to thread.

Williams Sonoma gift card - what would you do?

I've got several of their wonderful jacquard tablecloths that are manufactured at the Russian mill. Softer with each wash and they will be handed down to my children to use at Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.

We have a wide dining room table at 46", so I love that the width for the linens is 70".

Love them!

Top Chef Season 13 Is Heading To...

So then you missed the part where they had to take a 6x6 block of ice and, using a chainsaw, do an ice sculpture of Padma in a bikini?

Peeps!!!!!!!

How do you milk a peep?

Anyone else have an odd craving for bananas today? Just curious.

Well, if one's required to actually DO a split, I'd be in trouble.

Only if you have a Vitamix.

The Vitamix can turn bananas into truffles.

(Screeches to a halt, slowly turns and says...) Scalloped bananas? Wasn't there a recipe light years ago from the Nilla Wafer box about some kind of layered bananas?

And you all thought I was going to say "Banana Falls, slowly I turn..." :)

Just make sure the vendor wears a glove while pulling that banana off the bunch. God knows where that hand has been!

Well, this is for Linda...

Linda, do you have access to my laptop? I was watching a re-run this very afternoon about Amy's Banana Company.

Your powers are awesome.

Okay, I should have said, "Bc, you're on a roll." Har-har!

Better late.

I hate it when the "so-called expert" among friends at our table reads the banana list and proceeds to tell us all which banana we should order. I ignore the "expert" because it all depends on whether I'm in the mood for a tart green or a more mellow yellow.

Fabulous, Bc, just fabulous!

I burned bananas in my All Clad. Will BKF remove the residue or should I use oven cleaner?

(I actually didn't burn them. They were resting in the pan, and my cat turned on the burner because I let her roam around the kitchen at night.)

Would you eat bananas prepared by your neighbors? If not, how about if they went through a middleman - would you then be willing to spend good money to do so?

Could be worse. He could be washing your clothes with bananas...

AND, who left a half of a banana muffin? Who would take the hacked up second half? Looks like a crime scene.

All Clad "everyday pan"- Calling all All clad 4 qt Sauteuse owners and 3 qt Cassoulet owners

I have the 13 inch braiser, it's a monster. I first used it to make bolognese, and love it for very large gratins as well as meaty sauces.

Christmas dinner a few years ago: thinly sliced potatoes poached in milk, lifted and placed in the braiser. Milk fortified with a bit of garlic, eggs, dry sherry, nutmeg, lots of Gruyere. Poured over the layered potatoes and baked until melded together and crispy on top. The braiser is lovely, so I put it right on the table.

Still discussed to this day. Good food memories.:)

I'm the turtle at the table .

I end up sharing most of my food (my choice) and laughing so much, I never finish a meal. I don't worry about it, actually. I'm glad to be with my favorite people and if I'm the turtle that's okay with me - I'll move on to the next course when everyone else does.

Don't want to miss the sweets.

Would you like to cook like Amy from Amy's Baking Co. of Kitchen Nightmares fame?

Wow. Does she own a bakery in the dark of the woods shaped like a gingerbread house?

All Clad "everyday pan"- Calling all All clad 4 qt Sauteuse owners and 3 qt Cassoulet owners

I have the A/C 4 qt. sauteuse and love it. It's just the right size for making pasta sauce for two, small braises, shallow frying, and it can double as a casserole. The domed lid adds a little schooch room.

There were two versions, and I originally bought the one with the cheap lid, which had a narrow rim and didn't sit very well.

I can't recall where I got that one - maybe Amazon years ago? Anyway, returned it, and got the one with the heavier lid.

It's used in regular rotation in the bc kitchen.

Good luck with your search!

Why remodel a kitchen and put in an electric range?

So a good reason to put up with my old house's drafty windows - my dual fuel. I admit to leaving my oven door open after using it to add some warmth. A little give and take.

Le Creuset - Scratches and abrasions on underside of new pot after just two uses

The bottom sure does, of course, with the L/C label instead of the Cousances. Thank you for the in-depth info, alexrander. I never knew. Anyway, both of my ovens look like L/C and act like L/C.

Years ago, I had a pot with the Cousances imprint, but can't for the life of me remember what ever happened to it.

I agree, and will assume because it's Yahoo the list was created by a bunch of yahoos.

Le Creuset - Scratches and abrasions on underside of new pot after just two uses

I purchased mine from Wms-Sonoma back then, and they definitely seem to be L/C - based on the number on the bottom and name on the lid. I just took a couple pics of the smaller oven. Would they put their own name on cookware they've acquired?

Interesting.
