Cooking with herbs is the difference between so-so and a culinary masterpiece. But dried herbs are

Cooking with herbs is the difference between so-so and a culinary masterpiece. But dried herbs are sometimes bland, and those bunches of fresh herbs at the grocery store get pricey. Why not grow your own year-round? Here’s what you need to know to create an indoor herb garden that’ll last through the winter. Not every herb likes it indoors. Some, such as dill and fennel, get humongous, so they’re not good options. Others like marjoram are more particular and don’t like a drafty windowsill. Basil can be tough, too, as it really needs temperatures in the 70s and gets droopy after a cool night or two. But sometimes the only way you’ll know what will work in your house is to give it a go! If you can beat the first frost in cold climates, dig up a little clump of thyme or chives to bring indoors. For other herbs such as mint, root a cutting in water, then plant. Many others, such as basil and parsley, can be started from seed. Herbs like light, and lots of it! This is the biggest challenge for growing herbs indoors, as most require six hours of bright light. Choose a windowsill that faces south or southwest, which will get the brightest and most hours of sunlight per day. East-...

JL Audio Introduces New 8-Inch In-Wall and In-Ceiling Subs

Go shopping for a truly uncompromising high-performance in-wall subwoofer, and you’re going to end up with a very short list of manufacturers. And JL Audio is undeniably on that very short list. But in the past, the cost of its 13.5-inch architectural subs has been an insurmountable barrier to entry for some. Especially those with smaller listening spaces.  The companys’ new 8-inch models, introduced this week, definitely help, especially given that prices start at just $2,300. JL Audio, an innovator in high-end audio solutions, now shipping an 8-inch version of their Fathom IWS in-wall subwoofer systems with additional enclosure option for in-ceiling applications. The new 8-inch Fathom IWS and ICS systems join a previous model, with a 13.5-inch driver, in the Fathom IWS lineup.  ”We are excited about the potential of the 8-inch in-wall and in-ceiling subwoofer solutions in our growing line of architectural audio solutions,” said Andy Oxenhorn, President of JL Audio. “These models have a very small, low-profile grille that will please customers looking for a visually unobtrusive solution that delivers true JL Audio sub-bass performance.” The 8...

8 Pairs of Workout Shorts That Won’t Chafe or Ride Up

It’s a glorious summer morning and you’re just itching to get out there to start your day with an uplifting jog around the neighborhood. So you grab your favorite sports bra, sneakers and headphones and rush out the door. You feel the wind on your face as your muscles start to loosen up and remember how good it feels to break a sweat. And then your thighs decide to pick a fight with one another, and you’re forced to do a weird sort of crab-walk back home so that the chafing won’t get any worse than it already is.  Don’t let angry thigh chafing get in the way of your glorious summer morning runs (or any workouts, for that matter). Here to help get you through those hot days when you just can’t even with a pair of leggings or capris are eight pairs of shorts that are long enough to prevent chafing and won’t ride up no matter how many miles you’re tackling today. The high-cut waist and ten-inch inseam guarantee nothing will be hanging out or left uncovered. On the flip side, the seamless hem at the legs won’t dig in or ride up, while the numbered sizing (0 through 14) allows you to get closer to a perfect fit than generic small/medium/large sizing ever could. With two deep side po...

Like most right-thinking omnivores, I love a hog roast – insincere apologies to any vegetarians still

Like most right-thinking omnivores, I love a hog roast – insincere apologies to any vegetarians still reading, but I’m rarely happier than when clutching a white roll overflowing with tender meat and crispy fat in my greedy paw. However, at the risk of hitting our national pride right where it hurts (the roast meat department), I prefer the Italian version. It pops up in similar places (“porchetta trucks are fixtures at every festival, fair or sagra – local fete – parked in the middle of the benign pandemonium”, as Rachel Roddy notes in her lovely book Five Quarters: Recipes and Notes from a Kitchen in Rome, while the Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi love it so much “we asked our local butcher to bring his porchetta van to our wedding”) but, while Britain has long had a reputation for plainness in matters meat, porchetta has been given the fancy Italian treatment, stuffed with garlic and herbs, generously salted and served in robustly chewy rolls. If our hog roast is great, I’m afraid theirs is utterly sublime. But, as with many classic Italian recipes, there’s very little agreement on the best way to prepare it – as one desperate reader, appetite whetted by a holiday in Rome, discov...
