Dipped Beehive Crock
The bee's knees.
As our collection of handy kitchen tools grow (yes, you do need a microplane and no, there isn’t such a thing as too many wooden spoons) we need plenty of places to put them. We like keeping them close by (for a quick taste) in these earthy stoneware crocks, available in 2 sizes. We use the larger for our rolling pins and the medium size fits oodles of stirrers and spatulas. When not employed in our kitchen, they’re stuffed with flowers! The raw stoneware is visible on the bottom, while the top half is dipped in a cool, creamy glaze. Now, stock your crock!

Our Tips & Stories
How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
Like houseplants, but better.
This is the ninth in our biweekly series from Amy Pennington – urban farmer, founder of GoGo Green Garden, and author of Urban Pantry and Apartment Gardening – on how to start growing your own food, no matter how tiny your garden-to-be is. Today: Amy gets us started on our herb gardens in outdoor beds and in pots -- with some Destiny's Child lyrics thrown in there, too. Happy May Day! I switched gears this week and decided we needed to chat about herbs instead of intensive gardening techniques. Herbs should be planted now and will really make your kitchen sing. Additionally, this is a great project for anyone with either a yard or a small balcony. Stay tuned next week when we get back on track, but for now, read on so that your kitchens are always stocked and your garden is always in bloom.
This week Margo True, editor of Sunset magazine and The Sunset Cookbook, shares with us the simplicity of fresh herbal tea.
