    For teenagers heading off to college, it’s both a design dream and a challenge: What to do with a small, nondescript dorm room — a space you may have to share? A space that may include furniture you can neither remove nor alter?

    If you don’t have a recipe for a specific canned tomato, you could get very confused in the canned tomato aisle at the supermarket. That section takes up about one-third of the aisle and extends from the top to the bottom shelves, with so many types and brands of tomatoes.
