1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 21 Gun Salute Shells on: January 27, 2010 05:01:45 AM
Recently my great uncle passed away.  In his youth, he was in the Navy, so my family had the American Legion come out and do a 21 gun salute.

I felt compelled to get a shell from each volley, but now I don't know what to do with them.

2  COOKING / Dessert / Ladybug Ice Cream Cake for Mom's Day on: May 16, 2009 07:42:13 AM
Asked mom what she wanted for Mother's Day dinner...She responds ice cream cake!  Ugh.  Luckily for Christmas she'd gotten me one of those Betty Crocker cake pans, so I put it to get use.

I used my favorite cake recipe (below from Food Network), but after the freezings it was though the cake was too dense (but I didn't want to use the Betty Crocker [are you as surprised as I am?] mix).  I chose to stuff it with strawberry ice cream (cheapest kind I could fine as it only took 1 pint).  It was my first attempt at using the whole bag decorating thing.

This was surprisingly easy to make, but I regret not making the icing as well.






Yellow Cake:
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs and 1 yolk for the egg whites
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Bunch Bouquet on: May 01, 2009 04:34:14 PM
First post! I've been lurking and getting ideas, so I wanted to post this gift.

I got the general idea from Martha Stewart, but decided that I didn't want to use her suggested items and I didn't like her destructions.  I ended up buying a lot of clothes and just filling in some places.  As for the leaves/flowers use your judgement of what looks well.  I don't remember what exactly is in this bouquet anymore more but there's at least 3 pairs of socks, 4 bibs, and some onesies (sorry I can't remember exactly).  The flowers (for the leaves I got one big thing of leaves and cut individual leaves off...cheaper! and more fun) and strophome [sp?] cute came from Michael's and the jar (which was shipped with the lid) was found at a thrift store.

It was a huge hit!
