The Man's Kitchen & the Real Scoop on Lactose Intolerance

This Time Last Year

This time a year ago we were talking about keeping cool (see: Cajun lemonade, cucumber ice pops, brownie ice cream sandwiches...) and showing you some really gorgeous kitchens. We were also talking about some lesser-known berries, giving you the facts on lactose intolerance, and discussing the best knife for cutting tomatoes. Plus: 5 favorite old-fashioned kitchen gadgets, exotic foods we'd like to try (and ones we'd rather avoid), and the best granola ever. Read on for these posts plus lots more from this week a year ago.
