| Food and Drink Board|| I'm trying to choose granite ... do you know what yours is? - Darla Hood on 12/19/14 at 5:50 pm|
Making a final decision on granite is harder than I thought it would be. Partially because I keep getting sidetracked by falling for a particular quartzite or marble. I am trying to stick to some semblance of a budget, so I'm ruling those out.
Did you choose your stone, do you still like it, and ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Question about royal red shrimp - Darla Hood on 11/2/14 at 6:17 pm|
Several websites have said not to add salt when boiling royal reds because they are briny enough. I can't imagine not having salt in the boil seasoning. What say the FDB?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Please tell me about your kitchen appliances ... - Darla Hood on 11/1/14 at 10:11 am|
We're pretty sure we want a gas cooktop (has to be able to be converted for liquid propane) and double wall ovens, a microwave drawer and dishwasher. We're keeping the current fridge, as it's only a few years old.
I don't think I need chef level stuff. There are only two of us in the household, a...
| Movie/TV Board|| Transparent on Amazon Prime - Darla Hood on 10/18/14 at 7:52 am|
I searched for a thread and didn't see one.
Has anyone watched this series? Ten 30 minute episodes, definitely binge watchable. Jeffrey Tambor and Judith Light star. Tambor plays a man who has decided to live his life as a woman. Judith Light is his ex-wife and plays the Jewish mother role most e...

Throw all your ideas at me.
The current plan is to demo the wall between the kitchen and the den in order to enlarge the kitchen. Current kitchen will be gutted. Fireplace in den will also be removed (and chimney, etc.) Fireplace removal is really necessary for the new kitchen. It has always been...
| Food and Drink Board|| Btrtigerfan ... how'd your kitchen turn out? - Darla Hood on 8/8/14 at 9:27 pm|
In a thread from last August you mentioned quartzite for your counter tops. Is that what you went with? I am very interested in using this in our kitchen remodel.
Any pics? Or is there a thread that I missed where you posted the finished kitchen?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Looking for oldest continuous bar in Louisiana. - Darla Hood on 5/7/14 at 9:38 am|
An acquaintance is trying to visit the oldest bars in all 50 states. He wants it to be not just the oldest, but the oldest continuously run bar (open regularly since the beginning). When I Google, it points to Lafitte's Blacksmith Bar, but some have said that is not actually true. I don't think it m...
| Food and Drink Board|| Have you had any Popsicles lately? - Darla Hood on 3/29/14 at 10:14 am|
Sugar free Popsicles are often my go to sweet treat. I don't care for the tropical flavors, but I have loved the regular orange, grape, and cherry. I recently bought some after not buying any for a few months and the recipe seems to have changed! Are there any other Popsicle lovers out there who hav...

I mentioned Beef Rendang in Drew Orleans' thead. I said my recipe was from Hot Sour Salty Sweet, but actually, I used a recipe from Molly Stevens' "All About Braising."
I don't have the recipe with me, but if anyone is interested, I can get it when I get home. But surprise, surprise, I seem to ha...

Something terribly embarrassing happened a couple of weeks ago at an after funeral gathering of a dear friend.
I was showing a phone pic of our late friend to another friend, when he did something that I think NO ONE should do. He scrolled through my phone pics. How rude! But as he scrolled, he l...
