VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

i've seen a lot of talk about "rotating your greens." may have to look into it.

VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

slightly interesting turn of events. had my first check-up since my vmix purchase in october. i've been drinking a green smoothie daily since then. oddly enough, my iron levels are now too high. had a fasting blood test on tuesday. i'm guessing pounds of spinach (literally) a week probably has something to do with it.

Best Boston restaurants that are also great for kids

i took my 5 year old to a 2 hour dinner at gaslight. he ordered the 3 course prix fixe. it was great. we went on the earlier side, though.

also chinatown. just about anywhere is good for kids.

Anyone have experience with All-Clad's steamer?

yeah, i have the top part that fits into a few saucepans that i have.

our favorite is still the collapsible stainless vegetable one.

real men don't each quiche?

i don't know if this counts as a food stereotype, but when i put down my credit card at a restaurant, my husband is more often than not, given the bill folder when it comes back. He's also presented with the bill more often than i am. I'm a woman, btw.

can you post a link? i have their giant pasta pot with steamer insert and then their steamer insert for smaller sauce pans. the pasta pot is ridiculous. way too big and messy. the smaller sauce pan insert is so/so.

good point. in this instance, i know what everyone's bringing. dupe lasagne isn't an issue.

lasagne vs ziti

meat isn't an issue. i'm bringing meatballs either way. it's a family of carnivores. no dietary issues except for personal preferences. my lasagne never has meat. but the sauce i use always has meat cooked in it.

lasagne vs ziti

i was asked to bring baked ziti. i'd rather bring lasagne. i make the pasta. if you asked for a ziti and got a lasagne, would you be upset? I will call and ask when i call to inquire about available oven space (20 minute ride, 1 pm arrival time, 2 pm dinner time. If i pull it out of the oven seconds before the car ride, it will be lukewarm at best by dinner), but i'm just wondering if it's rude to ask. is it rude to ask about the oven?

QUARTZITE for kitchen countertops

i have quartzite. be careful with super white. it's actually a dolomite, i've heard. not a true quartzite. it will scratch and etch and possibly stain. i think it's a cross between a marble and a granite (i dunno...i didn't go to geology school!) i have one called wicked white that looks just like super white.

If they won't give you a sample, you should pass.

Sourdough Starter

i think it took me 9 days to grow my starter. i'd wait before making any decisions.

Why remodel a kitchen and put in an electric range?

i've never had a rental with anything other than gas. i own now. gas. i've never cooked on electric. and i lived in a lot of crappy boston rentals.
