  1. Thanks @Annie_H! It looks like I have some options. Here and here. Actually the whirlpool might be a tiny bit shorter than 66 inches which I don’t mind.
  2. 😁 that is the big problem! I tried it already, it looks there are not many options available 😅 thanks @rotuts, I will call the HomeDepot
  3. Hi guys, One year in the new house and I already had to repair this fridge twice (compressor problem) but the technician already warned me, next time you might have to replace the motherboard, he told me! I can already see ice building up in freezer. I am starting looking for a new refrigerator. Problem is the dimensions. This is a LG lsxs22423s (width 32.8, depth 35.6 and height 66.5), obviously I am thinking of another brand. I am having an hard time looking for a replacement. I like the ice maker and water function. Freezer capacity is also important as now, living on an island, it more difficult to go shopping. Any suggestions? Thanks
  4. Thanks everyone for your suggestions, at the end they are going with this option. My friend was grateful for your help, @JoNorvelleWalker I will definitely get a link to the lines when they will released them.
  5. Hi @JoNorvelleWalker, I will link this discussion to my friend and see what she says. Thank you dear 🤗

    Not really summery but if I wait for a cold night I can sit comfortably for long time before it happens 😁
  7. Thank you, guys! Passing along your suggestions.
  8. @JoNorvelleWalker she just told me she cannot share the photos for now because they are prototypes that will be presented in Frankfurt on Feb 2022.
  9. Too specific, I think. Let me ask her if she has pictures of the new line. Here is a link to the company.
  10. Hi there. I have an Italian friend which produces pans. They are launching 6 new lines of pans and they are looking for names for the new lines. We were talking about this among friends in an Italian cooking forum and I thought it would be great to ask you as well. Using Italian famous cities has been overused, so the idea was to use an adjective or name that could be associated with the most important cities. Like Rome is Eterna, Venice is Serenissima and so on. Other people made other suggestions but names of famous people for example is out of question for reason of copyrights. Any suggestion? Or thoughts? Thanks!

    @Shelby you can borrow the kids whenever you want. It was great they cooked as I was not in the mood myself 😉 I hope they feel the need more often 😂. Tonight the husband did an awesome job grilling a ribeye cap. Some Bineshii on the side and a couple vegetables and a sliced pepino melon. I couldn’t resist adding a picture from the window.

    He is going to be 14 in a week 😅 amazing growth this year! He already passed me, not a difficult task though as I am so petite. Cabinets in this house, luckily for me are not as tall as in my previous house.
  13. 😂 that’s a matter of fact. I will only stop complaining about my fruit and vegetables, for the moment
  14. Second box delivery. Wonderful. And mea culpa, I finally managed to go to the island market. Only one stand but much better than my old neighborhood. I can stop complaining 😁
  15. Despite being from Puglia my orecchiette skills are mediocre. It takes a lot of practice to make something acceptable, because it’s all in how you hold the knife, the angle and the pressure exercised. They need to come uniform, thin, no holes, not super thick hedges. I often cheat and use a cavatelli machine (on the flat side, no ridges) and open one by one to get something similar to strascinati. This seems tedious but I can assure you it is still less tedious than trying to make 4 people portions when you don’t have the hand for it. I learned to make acceptable orecchiette when I went to university and I wanted the fresh taste. Nowadays you can buy packaged fresh orecchiette in the refrigerated section of any supermarket in Italy. Still not as good as the properly made one.
  16. I just checked, also these guys have the mahachanok mango…I saw I can get the mix box, 6-8 pounds for $30. I will get next week. I am all happy now, at least fruit wise. The owner told me that they sell more vegetables in the fall. For now I got zucchini and butternut squash.
  17. I opened the mango and it was very juicy and sweet, also the goldfinger bananas super good! Thanks @weinooyour research was fruitful, for real 😁
  18. Finally my first order from Fruits ‘n Cahoots arrived. It looks promising
  19. Not at all, unfortunately I am stuck here for a while. Not now that he has found the perfect solution for the kids school. But hopefully travel is becoming easier and I can finally escape 🤣
  20. Good to know! Thank you, KennethT.
  21. 🤣 I honestly wish but my husband is all determined to stay here, let’s say that I prefer the dirty streets of Brooklyn to my tropical island, might sound crazy to some but it’s true 😁
  22. Awesome, thank you @Kenneth. Edit to add: thanks again @KennethT just joined, very interesting.
