Something in your kitchen design that irritates you!

My kitchen is tiny (4x4) and I'm running out of room for things as I accumulate more and more stuff :-/ The most annoying thing is emptying out a carefully stacked cupboard so I can get to whatever's in the back.

Poll: Ice Cream, Gelato, or Frozen Custard?

Frozen yogurt!!! A shop recently opened a block from my apartment and now that I am hooked, ice cream just doesn't hold the same appeal to me as it used to. But if I can't have frozen yogurt, gelato is a close second.

Weekend Cook and Tell: You Ate Where?

On a recent Caribbean cruise, I did a van tour of St. Lucia. At the end of the day, we stopped at a bakery in a village, our guide got out and came back with bags of bread and cheese. The bread was piping hot, crunchy on the outside, and oh so soft on the inside. The cheese got all melty and gooey and delicious stuffed inside the bread. One of the simplest meals ever (and eaten in a van) but so amazing!

burned out on lunch sandwiches

I'm a grad student who takes my lunch to work every day, and typically I take a sandwich of some kind: turkey, egg salad, tuna, etc. As you can imagine, this gets pretty old. Does anyone have ideas for sprucing up lunchtime, either ways to jazz up sandwiches or other quick, cheap things to pack? What kinds of things do you pack in your lunch?
