  1. Onions hate me; I have to stop to close and wipe my eyes probably 3-4 times during one onion, just because of the pain and profuse tearing. Unfortunately, onion goggles don't fit on my head/over my glasses. I think I need those big-n-ugly goggles from chem lab, and then to stop up any ventilation holes.
  2. Ah, where do I begin... I will preface this by saying I am a non-proselytizing ovo-lacto vegetarian, who will gladly cook meat for others - I've even hand-made sausage. My dietary "quirks" are not something I inflict upon other people. I also, like many vegetarians, expect to pick at salad, bread, and perhaps a side at a big meal and don't want anyone to go out of their way for me. However, I appreciate honesty when someone tells me what is/isn't edible for me, as I've been a vegetarian for so long that I become sick to my stomach (and often vomit) when people intentionally or unintentional
  3. A 1966 publication of Spin Cookery from Oster, which I'm sure came with the Oster blender that my mother owned until she handed it off to me when I moved into my own place in college. That blender probably gave up the ghost only 4-5 years ago, now that I think about it. Besides that, Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals and its sequel. (I haven't even cracked the covers in a couple years, I swear.) Jamie Oliver's Happy Days with the Naked Chef is in my to-be-donated box - do I have to count that?
  4. Not that many, perhaps three or four dozen (not including my brewing books, of which I have maybe a dozen), and I'm trying to pare those down as well. After a certain number, I neglect too many books. I'm going to scan recipes from some if there are a few that I return to while never touching another recipe in the book, then give away or sell those cookbooks.
  5. I have to add my voice to confirm this - please make some room in your kitchen for canning tongs if you're going to do any canning at all. Boiling hot water plus wet glass jars are just asking for trouble without them - as well as a future entry in the I Will Never Again... thread.
