Nothing special here, just an easy and tasty one. I make these all the time. You can't find an easier cookie recipe, and it's a good one to have on hand for someone who's allergic to chocolate!

I made this recipe over the weekend. It reminded me of southern bread pudding from my childhood, which is not my favorite thing, but a coworker made it for a breakfast pitch-in this week and it was a huge hit at the office. She sprinkled the top with chopped pecans and dollops of cream cheese before baking. People couldn't stop talking about it.

My mom taught me to knit at age 7 in about 5-10 minutes, granted she was there in the following hours to answer questions and help me through any problems I encountered.

Sorry to scare you Buglake!

Thanks for the info Orangeisgood. I was getting really tired of using metal snaps in all my wallets and I refuse to ever use velcro (hate the sound it makes). I will now be jumping on the magnetic snap bandwagon!

aline125,
Just bought some of your yarn off Etsy. Beautiful stuff... I can't wait to get it on my needles!

Buglake,
I noticed that you used a magnetic closure for your wallet. I've read that magnets too close to credit cards can erase any information on the card, therefore making it unusable. You might want to consider an alternate form of closure.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: ideas on how to display photos? on: September 19, 2005 08:49:12 AM
I have some photo "clothes lines" on my office walls. I just stretched a length of string or thin cording between two push pins, then hang my photos from the line with mini clothes pins you can find at your local craft store. It's very cute, especially if the line droops a little. It's easy to change your pics and I always get tons of compliments.
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: eyebrows? on: September 09, 2005 12:01:55 PM
Being Asian and living in America I have often found myself jealous of the thick and sometimes bushy brows of American girls. There are so many more eyebrow options when you have more to start with. I barely pluck a few stray hairs and must painstakingly fill in my sparse brows with pencil or powder every morning. For tips and tricks to finding and creating the perfect eyebrows for your face shape, check out www.eyebrowz.com. And for those who have no eyebrows, they sell "eyebrow wigs" made with real hair. Personally, I'm considering permanent cosmetic eyebrow tattooing. Anyone had any experience with that?

Concerning the curly hair thing:

I have curly (& I mean curly) hair, and one thing I've learned is to NEVER wrap your hair in a towel after a shower. I used to wrap it up in a "turban" (as my mom would always call it) after I showered to keep it off of me, help dry it quicker, etc. NOT worth it. My hair would always be frizzy, and no matter what I did, it wouldn't smooth out. So now after I shower, I comb it until all of the knots are out (upside down, too) and squeeze it like a you would a wet towel. It dries MUCH nicer. This helps esp. in the summer. Hope this helps!


Just wanted to say THANK YOU! I have coarse/thick wavy hair and it was always frizzy, no matter what product I tried or how I styled it. Well, I always wrapped it turban style with my towel and left it that way while I applied make-up, lotion, etc... I followed your advice and stopped wrapping it period and wow! No more frizz! I don't even have to use any products on it and it's soft and shiny always! I just squeeze the water out with my hands and let it dry naturally. At first the dripping on my shoulders was annoying, but it's so worth it now that I see the results. Thank you so much for your wisdom!

Yes, it's just called a flower loom. Wrights makes one called a "Bloom Loom" which should be available in most craft stores.
