21-22" countertops?

i think it would look a little stunted. do you have uppers? also, what appliances do you have? how would they look with these lowers? most appliances are at least 24 inches deep. you know that ikea does have drawer options on their lower cabs, and that they are having their kitchen sale right now....you can also get other vendors to do the fronts for the ikea cabs. just a thought.

good luck finding 25,000 people that don't side with mb and know what they're doing....also, this doesn't take into account the consumer.

i'm so pumped by how the workers are organzing

i can eyeball the proportions. i was just wondering if using tomato sauce sounded silly.

i'm looking at recipes on line, and most are garlic and onions with tomatoes and then add stock.....

any recipes you'd care to share? much appreciated.

tomato sauce + chicken stock = tomato soup?

what do you think? my basic tomato sauce with garlic, onions, plum tomatoes, crushed red pepper. puree with some chicken stock....could that be tomato soup? and with cream....cream of tomato soup? i do cook meatballs in the sauce sometimes. but how bad could it be if i used that version?

he didn't pay the salaries. malden mills paid the salaries. which eventually bankrupted the company 2 or 3 times.

that's a sure fire smoke detector setter offer! the oven needs to be immaculate, even then it's no guarantee!

the super duper uber low simmer function works by the burner turning off and on at 30 second or so intervals.

Fresh Spring/Summer Roll Recipes, please

made them last night. they were delicious. dressed the veg slightly (carrots and cukes), tossed the noodles in a teeny tiny bit of sesame oil, added shrimp. used mint and basil and did add lettuce. they were pretty. and refreshing.

i used this recipe as a very loose guide. http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-how-t...

thanks all for the help!

So weird, i was just talking about moxie this weekend when we were at a place on the cape that served it. i don't think i hate it, but i probably wouldn't seek it out. so i could probably do without. teddy ballgame liked it, right? (or at least shilled for it, iirc). it's like robitussin without the robotrip.....

Fresh Spring/Summer Roll Recipes, please

that sounds delicious. i already have the rice papers, though. it would turn that into something totally different, but probably still pretty damn tasty, no? i'd love the crepe recipe if you have it handy....
