3.0 out of 5 stars Another mistake of mine, May 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I thought these would substitute for the 20-watt halogens in my range hood, but the pins were slightly too far apart. I had to return them.

3.0 out of 5 stars My mistake, May 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm sure they were fine, but I bought the wrong bulbs. These are 12-volt, so the three I tried immediately blew out in my 130-volt system (I live in Mexico). Am hoping to return them. I wanted to replace 50-watt halogen downlights, and these were a tad too large for the holders, in any case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actors good; scripts predictable, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Anything that Bill Nighy appears in is great, in my world. The first episode was the usual confusing spy stuff, but the second, with great supports like Walken, Bonham Carter, and Ryder, was a lot better.

2.0 out of 5 stars We've seen way too many exemplars of this genre..., October 23, 2014
The writing was so bad I couldn't finish it, though the chapter about the archery competition picked up the pace. This book needed cutting in half and a competent line editor to week out all the repetitive verbiage. Can't believe a reputable publishing co. picked it up. I'm just back from Montalcino, and I felt no correspondence at all between the town and the hype of this account. Yes, it's lovely, but many places are, and the author makes this the one and only. Amusing that she says in her intro that the book is not about her but rather her neighbors, because her personality comes through loud and strong and unnecessarily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Splenda More Than Sugar, March 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I enjoyed this, despite agreeing with some other reviewers that it's been done better before by others. The writing style is a tad forced to my ear, ditto the humor. Some observations are dated at this point, vide those on fashion. But the author's persona is likable—and of course for readers addicted to all things Paris, it's a must.

This is a perfect replacement for Neutrogena's Ageless Essentials Continuous Hydration (daytime), which—like all good products—seems to have been discontinued. I am relieved to find it.

We've watched this three times, now, seeing new details and appreciating the characters more every time. Great history, wonderful stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars It can recharge your "enthusiasm batteries" for cooking, October 12, 2013
I was worried that this compilation wouldn't live up to its yellow predecessor, but I now probably use them equally. The green book challenges me more, spurring me to buy new ingredients (such as pomegranate molasses) and to try unlikely-sounding combinations--so it's been responsible for a renaissance in my kitchen. I love the Grilled Dishes section (try the Grilled Eggplant with Yogurt Mint Sauce, and sauce some grilled chicken while you're at it). Yes, a lot of the recipes are time-consuming, but I think that's partly due to their ethnic origins: Third-World dishes can require a lot more massaging to bring out the flavor of humble ingredients. You just have to trust that each time you make a complex recipe it will get easier... as a new route does when you're driving or walking.

Oddly, another reviewer raved about the Spicy Chicken, whereas I had penciled next to it, "greasy, salty." You never know; every cook is different. But I'm willing to try it again based on that comment. I'd like to promise you that you'll forever treasure the Chicken Cashew Chili... but someone else will undoubtedly have nixed it in her/his copy!

A last word, about the index: it's what a cookbook index should be, and more. You can find a vaguely recalled recipe in any one of a number of ways, from ingredients to ethnic style to meal category. The cross-referencing throughout the book is likewise flawless. As a former editor and indexer, I'm delighted to see publishers' money spent on these kinds of details; too many of my formerly favorite recipes from other books have "disappeared" without adequate indexing to guide me back to them!

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, October 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was excited to find such a large litter pan but a bit dubious because of the low price. As I should have been: the gauge of plastic is thin. My pan warped quickly from urine-soaked litter, and the plastic is scratched from cleaning. Perhaps it's best used with "clumping" litter, which keeps the moisture off the pan. But I use non-clumping, for the health of my cats. It's okay, worth the money, but I wish I'd spent more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slight design flaw, October 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a handsome, strong, high-quality product. My only complaint is that it's hard to get food out of the deep basket; the twist bar blocks my fingers a bit.
