This is the cake I made, in a mug, with the microwave. (Isn't that the coolest thing ever!) The cake recipe is from http://be-it-ever-so-humble.blogspot.com/2010/02/lemon-mug-cake.html. I added a lemon glaze. I made the glaze by mixing the juice of half a lemon and about two and a half spoon fulls of powdered sugar (a regular kitchen spoon, not a table spoon, or teaspoon).
Here is another toy for my yet-to-be-born nephew. It's what I am going to call his Blankie Bear. It comes with detachable blankie. I think I am going to have to make a few more things for the little bear to hold before I mail it to my sister. Maybe even a tiny blankie bear.
I just preheated the oven and a cookie sheet to 400. Place the jars on the cookie sheet. It took about 20 min. less than this recipe normally takes. Half way through I rotated the jars. I watched until the crust was turning golden brown and the filling was bubbling.
My mom just gave me my grandmother's Singer 401A. It sews like a dream! There is only one problem, I can't get the cam out. I have done what the manual says (turn the dial off of 'special'and have the red lever in the middle position) but it just won't come out. Does anyone know any tricks to getting it out?
Last August my husband and I moved from our cozy little Arkansas town to a city in Texas for me to go to grad school. Apartment living isn't ideal, in order to make it a little more like home I built a little patch of grass for the cats (and me). Here it is! These photos were taken the day I finished the project. Two months later the little grass patch is doing great. Now I have to figure out how to mow a 2ft x 4ft lawn.
