Find a better bargain cutting board


A better board on a budget

The trick to buying a bargain cutting board is finding one that doesn't look like it. Ikea, with its new, limited-edition line of acacia wood cutting boards, is a good place to start. The range of sizes includes boards almost two feet long.

Gluten-free (and good!)

At long last, Tate's Bake Shop brings us gluten-free cookies worthy of being called "cookies." The crispy, scrumptious offerings substitute rice flour for wheat. I swear you won't believe they are gluten-free. Try the Double-Chocolate Chip or the Ginger Zinger with hunks of crystallized ginger baked in. - S.M.
