    For those who eat homegrown food, there’s a solid option for meat.
      Then she butchers and eats them. Terri’s a locavore, and for a growing number of city dwellers like her, raising rabbits for meat is one of the latest developments in the movement.

    Looking for the right chocolates for your sweetheart? We found them.
      A mere 11 points separated best from worst, but we had sharp differences on Hallett’s habañero caramel ($.80), which took the bottom. Jordy thought the dark chocolate went well with the habañero oil, while Leah and Luke thought it was spicy for the sake of spiciness.
