Most German apartment rentals come without much of anything in the kitchen, not even appliances or cabinets. So Sara and Mads, the owners of this Berlin kitchen, installed everything themselves and created a kitchen out of nothing. The result is a charming mix of vintage accessories and flea market discoveries. See more photos below: More
Q: My roommate is allergic to corn, which while sometimes inconvenient, has been a great motivator to get us to learn to cook our own food. However, I have some recipes I’d like to try that contain cornstarch, like puddings and stir fry recipes. Are there other starches I can substitute?

Football (American) championship season. Sports bars, beer, and spicy things that make you want to drink more beer. Darts, pool, loud conversation, an either ill-spent or well-spent youth, depending on your perspective. Once in my early twenties I happened to be in Buffalo, New York for a wedding of a dear friend. On our site-seeing day the gang of us revelers happened to drive right by the Anchor Bar, home of the “Original Buffalo Chicken Wings”. Did you know that Buffalo wings are so called because they were first invented in Buffalo, NY? I didn’t, and it had always been one of those oddities that gnawed at the back of my brain during these beer filled nights. In San Francisco we had Tommy’s Buffalo Burgers made with real buffalo meat. But buffalo wings? Hah! Mystery solved.

When you open the doors under your kitchen sink, what do you see? I have an old plastic bin of cleaning supplies and a few other random things thrown in back. I am very inspired, though, to get this dark cave cleaned up and organized thanks to Jen at IHeart Organizing — take a look at what she did to her own under-sink area! More
Q: I have a recipe that asks for four sheets of phyllo dough. However the brand I buy is frozen, and in order to get four sheets, I have to let it all thaw. Can I put it back in the freezer, or do I now have to use it up? Is there a way to just get a few sheets out of the package? Thanks!

If you have a thing for chocolate, the world is your oyster. On this very site, 86 of the just over 800 recipes boast a significant chocolate component and entire sections of bookstores will be happy to fill in any cravings I missed. If you have a thing for bacon, the internet would be overjoyed to find you places to put it, a couple. But if you have a thing for something slightly less of a prom king/queen ingredient, say, tiny white beans, well, it can be tough. It’s not there are no uses for them, it’s just that when you’re very much in love, there are never enough ways to be together. And if you’re me — someone who sometimes ups and makes a mega-pot of white beans just because you feel like it, presuming you’ll find things to do with them later — you sometimes end up scrambling, yanking down nearly every cookbook in your collection but still coming up bereft of uses outside the well-trodden soup-and-salad territory.
So tell me: What are you favorite uses for beans outside the ever-popular realm of chili, tacos, soup and salad? Really, I’m hankering for more inspiration. I ended up finding some — but never enough — in this month’s Bon Appetit, in a stack of pasta recipes you will find it impossible to choose among from Sara Jenkins of Porchetta and Porsena (and green bean salad, sigh) fame. I was so charmed by the short tubes of pasta with chickpeas, I made it almost immediately but maybe it was because I’ve overdone it on chickpeas this month, but I kept thinking it would be nice with something… daintier. And considering that it is an established fact (um, in Italy, where I suspect both my white bean and artichoke obsessions could roam free) that white beans, garlic, rosemary and olive oil are a combination sent from above, I had a hunch they’d be happy here too.
