    I will definitely check out the artichoke hearts and the mango sauce. I could potentially see using the mango on grilled fish, chicken or pork.

    These have become a staple in my pantry. I love them with pasta and sausage. Or, even mixed in with roasted potatoes or other veggies. Very versatile. The tomatoes, too.

    Corner cabinets -- help me hate mine less

    I would gladly trade mine for yours! We have the worst cabinetry lay-out I have ever seen. In our corner area, the stove is next to it, so the cabinet doesn't make an L--just goes way long with no way to get back into the depths of it. I put stuff in there 10 years ago when we moved in and haven't seen it since. Then, we have another one that goes back over the sink, which is set in a corner. To get into that one, I literally have to climb up onto the counter to reach the top shelf. And no, I am not short. I could go on and on, but trust me on this. I'd rather have yours!

    The Butter Toffee Pretzels are officially an obsession of mine now. Butter Toffee Pretzels
  6. What a great idea! I may need to see if I can do something like this, but am not sure the small design of our fireplace would work.

    I am becoming addicted to this stuff. If I was making it, I'd put fewer cheese rockets. Way too many of them in the can I bought.

    Restaurant flatware thoughts

    I do have arthritis and skinny handles do not work for me at all.

    Old cookbooks

    That is so cute, but I wouldn't dream of buying one until I unpack all my boxes of old cookbooks. It looks familiar enough to me that there is a very good chance I've already got a copy.

    Oh, man! I hope mine still has it in a couple of weeks when I get back!

    I can't believe the lines to get in!! 😮
  12. Exactly! I am actually happy when my British friends tell me they made my corn pudding that they had at our house one Thanksgiving and always think of us when they have it. And the same for when I make my friend's Shepherd's Pie recipe. Brings me happy memories to remember when she made it for us when we were there for their daughter's wedding. Just like food, recipes are meant for sharing. JMHO P.S. I am not a big "recipe cook"but rather wing it as I go, using a recipe as a general guideline. It can be difficult for me to tell someone exactly how I made something when every time I make it, it is a little different.
  13. Steak Pizzaiola as made by a friend's Sicilian mother. She wouldn't share the recipe and now she's gone.

    Recommendations for flameless candles?

    The most realistic ones I've seen are Luminara brand--various sizes/colors. But they are pricey. https://www.amazon.com/Luminara-Flameless-Halloween-Christmas-Wedding/dp/B01AI1A7JE/ref=sr_1_7?s=furniture&ie=UTF8&qid=1532182141&sr=1-7&keywords=luminara+flameless+candles
