1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Question for those experienced in canning/preserves on: October 22, 2011 05:13:08 PM
Hi!! Okay, I am wanting to make apple butter for my wedding favors.  I have made apple butter before but I am scared of botulism!  Do I need a pressure canner?
2  COOKING / Dessert / I FINALLY TRIED THESE!! on: March 17, 2011 07:51:44 PM
I know this is nothing new but I was so excited to FINALLY try these!! I thought it was fitting to try them on St Patty's Day with all the Leprachauns and rainbows!  I think what I'm mostly excited about is giving them to my elementary students tomorrow!! They will think this is super cool. So here's how mine turned out....




3  COOKING / Dessert / Chewy Almond Raspberry Sandwich Cookies on: December 28, 2010 11:11:04 AM
I got this recipe from the magazine Bon Appetit and they were delicious! The reviews online http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2010/12/chewy_almond_raspberry_sandwich_cookies  were not so great but they turned out SOOO good for me!!

Sorry for the cell phone pics.. I did not have my camera with me. The pics do not give the colors of the cookie justice!!






If you decide to make them, here are a couple of things I discovered 1)they were very sweet the day I made them but for some odd reason, they weren't so sweet on the 2nd day and they were perfect!   2) the recipe suggests making the cookies 2 1/2 inches long- i think because of their richness, they should be bite size so I would suggest making them about 1 inch long  3)because the dough is very soft, i did not roll them into the almonds- after squeezing the dough onto the pan with almonds, i just placed almonds on top instead of rolling the dough.  I then used a spatula to transfer the dough from the almond pan to the baking pan. YUMMMMY YUMMO!!

4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Help! Canning question.... on: December 24, 2009 06:29:34 PM
So I made homemade crockpot apple butter and it turned out fabulous!! Anyways, I canned for the very first time and planned to give the jars as gifts for my neighbors!! I followed the USDA instructions and the instructions on box the cans came in. The instructions were similar. My question is this::: I noticed there are bubbles at the bottom of my jars. Should I be worried about this? I am scared to death of poisoning people!!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beginner Embroidery on: September 20, 2009 09:31:56 PM
I made this for a swap and I thought it turned out pretty cute for a beginner- a beginner with embroidery and a beginner with felt! She received already so I thought I'd post some pics!







6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Apron on: July 18, 2009 08:45:03 AM
I made this apron for the Newbie Swap and was pleased with how it turned out even though I had trouble with the straps!  Not sure if you can tell in the pics but I added two pleats in the middle.  Next time I will add pockets!!!   I got the pattern from this tutorial:

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Destress/Relaxation Swap?!! on: June 10, 2009 09:38:15 PM
I'm a newbie and have never even done a swap but I know that with the economy (even though it's picking up) has been down, companies are still laying off people, and.... just life in general.. people are stressed. I think a destress/relaxation swap would be appropriate!!!  You could swap bath salts, a cozy knitted blanket, make a scrapbook on destress techniques or ideas, etc etc etc. How fun would that be?!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 1st post with pic!! on: June 08, 2009 07:55:12 PM
I made this tote for my friend for Christmas. This is my first post with pic ever!! How exciting!! I made this purse using the Jordy pattern. This is my 3rd purse I've ever made, with my first pocket and first snap!!! I am so proud of this purse!!

I stitched "Friends are Earth Angels" and fused it to the inside pocket. I also added a butterfly broach to the outside to add a little somthin somethin.  My friend couldn't believe I made her bag!!!
