Home And Garden

Feeling peckish for pesto? Don’t limit yourself to basil!

Fresh herbs are one of nature’s best low-cal flavor sources. And as the weather warms up, we’ll transition from buying herbs in cute little clamshells costing a couple bucks each to scooping large bunches of soft-leaved herbs into our carts for pennies on the dollar. Or perhaps you have an herb garden and you’ll find yourself inundated with a cilantro or parsley plant that takes over a small section of your backyard.

This Mother’s Day, let Mom have her scrambled eggs her way

As a mom, I know there’s no better gift on Mother’s Day than being served breakfast in bed, complete with the Sunday paper. So the menu I propose here is an extra-special plate of scrambled eggs tossed with sauteed wild mushrooms, a little Parmesan cheese, and perhaps a drizzle of truffle oil. It’s special, but it doesn’t require Herculean effort by the spouse (and kids) preparing it.

Ask a Designer: Create a gorgeous kitchen — within your budget

Remodeling a kitchen can be expensive and challenging, but you can make substantial cosmetic changes with just the help of a painter and electrician, says interior designer Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design in Los Angeles. And if you’re ready for even bigger changes, it’s still possible to stay on budget and create a gorgeous kitchen with a minimum of stress.

Kiwifruit: A very nutritious, easy-to-grow food

Kiwifruit, also called Chinese gooseberries, or simply kiwis, is a nutritious fruit with the vitamin C content twice that of an orange. Kiwis are an excellent and reliable fruit source between November and February. In addition, they make wonderful food gifts and are a novel topic for conversation. (If you dry the vines, you can even use them in craft projects.)

The tents are coming — no cause for alarm

Perhaps it is our fatigue, weary of the darkness of winter. Maybe it’s our eagerness to see the lush new green of spring bursting forth that fuels our disappointment (yes, and anger) over the appearance of tents in our trees. Disappointment is OK.
