I got the idea for heating pads here years ago and gave them away as gifts one Christmas (thanks guys!)
Now I'm thinking of making some pocket warmers for my friends in Canada who are freezing. I used rice in my last ones, but I know you can use other things as well.
Two questions: 1. What is the best filling for heating pads? Rice was a little prickly for me. 2. Can I use felt or something like that to make them? I want to make hearts and have them nice and soft. If not then can you recommend another soft fabric that would work? (I know they're supposed to be cotton but I don't know much about fabric)
I love Mexican Food and have been getting into more elaborate Mexican recipes. I found these two on www.allrecipes.com.
The recipe for Carnitas is pretty simple, it just takes time (1 1/2 hours to boil, 1 hour to sit, then shred, then fry). It was all worth it in the end. My boyfriend moaned a lot while he ate it.
I had never used raw tomatillos before but the guacamole was really good! It did need some salt though. Oh, and I didn't have the red onions the recipe called for so I went ahead and used green onions.
I would personally say yes its ok, but I know you asked for references and I don't have one because it's my personal opinion. Even if you use someone else's recipe, there is some skill involved- which you provide. On the other hand, if you're worried about being legal (on a totally different angle) you need to check the local laws in your area. For example in my area I cannot sell items at a farmer's market that I made in my own kitchen. I have to use a designated food prep kitchen. Plus have all sorts of certificates etc.
It almost looks similar to a hemp bracelet with beads. I have this book called It's Knot Hard and it shows how to do hemp knots and weave beads with them. You could try looking up different knot methods.
