From Fridges to Ovens, How to Choose the Right Appliances for You — Side By Side: A Guide to Appliance Shopping
Posted on Monday June 26, 2017

Are you thinking about renovating your kitchen? Do you have a refrigerator that's way (way) past its expiration date? If you're just starting your search for a new appliance (or appliances!), you'll quickly find that there are a lot more factors to consider than you may have anticipated.

Is a top freezer or a bottom freezer better for the way you store your stuff? Is a counter-depth or a built-in fridge worth the extra expense? Should you get a convection oven, or maybe you should go for that vintage range you've been eyeing for years? And what about a microwave oven? Do you need one (we say yes!), and should you go for a countertop version or a microwave drawer?

Here are your top-asked questions answered.

Posted on Monday June 26, 2017

European settlement in Lincoln, Massachusetts, dates back to 1654, and the town’s modern-day custodians are careful to honor and preserve its Colonial and agrarian roots. But it’s not a time capsule by any means. In fact, it’s also the location of Walter Gropius’ iconic 1938...

In the South, we love buttermilk for more than just biscuits and cornbread. In fact, it's one of our favorite ingredients for marinating meat — and it's not just fried chicken.

Posted on Monday June 26, 2017

My now-husband and I learned we had a lot in common when we first met, from mutual friends to a creepy knowledge of an obscure horror movie to the fact that he actually knew my brother from a random sports-card club they were in together during the eighth grade.

Posted on Monday June 26, 2017

Costco is a beacon of hope during a summer packed with neighborhood water fights (post-fight Popsicles required) and backyard barbecues. No other store helps you plan more summer camp snacks and feed crowds of pool-dwellers more economically than this big-box retailer. (Also, Costco seems to crush it when it comes to in-store air conditioning!)

While not everyone can use a mass quantity of water balloons or an 11-person inflatable raft from Costco, at least once this summer we'll all need to quickly feed a cookout crowd. Here are three of my favorite grilling shortcuts from Costco, plus two other top buys for the grill.
