(Image credit: Joe Lingeman)

This deceptively simple mix of cabbage, peanuts, and rice vinegar with oil is one of the easiest ways to round out a meal. It's all in how you cut the cabbage: the mix is light and feathery yet satisfying at the same time. This is my attempt to imitate it, and it's also a basic element in one of my favorite meals for a crowd, slow cooker hoisin pork wraps.

This Is the Best Episode of Barefoot Contessa — Food TV

When challenged to track down the best Barefoot Contessa episode, I was sure it would feature beach picnics, themed dinner parties, or the company of much-adored Jeffrey, sighing into pasta. I hadn't watched a new episode in years, preferring to treat Barefoot Contessa like a security blanket or comfort food.

The Most Important Step When Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets — Paint Project

With any paint project, it's all about the prep. I learned this the hard way when I tried to paint without priming, or thought I might be able to get straight edges without using painters' tape — not possible (at least for me!).

But kitchen cabinets are especially tricky because, if you really do it properly, you need to take everything apart. We're talking everything. You have to take off every single door and drawer face. And every hinge. And every drawer pull and knob.

Besides it being a time-consuming process, it's one that can go wrong quickly if you don't do this one thing: Number the doors and drawers before you take them off.
