If you get some fresh from the farmers market you'll notice a much more robust flavor than the grocery store va ... More >>

    I Miss You, Restaurant Matchbooks

    There's a large glass container filled with matchbooks in my apartment. Actually they're in a big Ziploc bag because I'm too lazy to unpack them, but I used to have them out in a big glass bowl on a table in my living room.
