Make Your Own Counter

I have the Parsons coffee table and end tables with travertine marble tops. They are great!

Ice, Ice Baby

I have these. They're a little hard to get out of the tray, but look really cool in drinks.

Campfire Trout with Herbs and Bacon

I made this (on the grill) and it didn't stick. Why bother criticizing a recipe without first making it?

Slap It Up

Simmer down, Atomica. It's suggested for the kitchen, and I'd say that's at least peripherally related to food.

The Microwave Turns Forty Amid Mixed Reviews

Once you get used to warming up your leftovers in the oven or on the stove, you'll never go back to microwaves. They are completely inferior and the extra 10 minutes it takes to use regular kitchen equipment is well worth it. (10 minutes is not a long time...)

Tasty mid-range in Ft. Worth?

I'll be in Ft. Worth next week on business and would like a sligtly offbeat, but really good place to take a client to lunch. Pretty much anywhere in central Ft. Worth area is fine. ISO something different and tasty, but not too expensive. Any ideas?

Visiting Austin...

Go to the Salt Lick if you can--if you stay in town, Green Mesquite is a good choice or Ruby's.

Definitley go to Las Manitas because they are supposedly closing down. It's a real Austin institution.

Also, I really like Tamale House #2 on Airport Blvd. Only open in the AM though.

Also, I suggest Polvo's.

Bistecca Fiorentina

It is a very common MYTH that salting meat befor cooking will dry it out--but it is indeed a myth, proven false many times over by chefs and food scientists. (Incidentally, Pelligrini Artusi died in 1911, which explains why he might have had things wrong.) Also I see no reason why putting olive oil on a steak after grilling it would give it a tallow-like taste.
