221  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Toffee Matzah! on: April 24, 2008 08:52:14 AM
These are some yummy yummers (for those who get the Sesame Street  Swedish Chef reference) !



Chocolate Toffee Matzah
Ingredients
1/2 lb matzos
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
8 ounces chocolate chips
almonds chopped (optional)
Directions
Line a cookie sheet with foil and lay matzah on pan. Melt brown sugar with butter in saucepan; boil until mixture coats a spoon. Drizzle matzah with brown sugar mixture.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 3-4 minutes (watch it will burn easily!!!) until it starts to bubble. Take out of oven, and cover with chocolate chips.

Put back in the oven until the chips start to melt, and take back out. Spread the chocolate to cover the matzah. Freeze until hard, then break into pieces. Nuts can be added on top of melted chocolate if you like.

Hubby is so busted!


Easy and good! Takes about 30 minutes total. Smiley

Thanks for looking. Smiley
223  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Matzah Mitts on: April 15, 2008 11:17:35 AM
Made oven mitts for people who are having us for meals in their home during Pesach (Passover), instead of making more food. Goodness knows I'm doing enough cooking already, and I know they all are, too.  Roll Eyes

The fabric looks like matzah so closely it is amazing! Even made myself an apron out of the fabric. Ended up making 8 sets of the square ones, and so far only one of the fingertip mitts. Hope to make more of those, but running short on time.

Overall:

These were fun to make. Smiley


(PS - Mods: I looked for a Passover section in the Holiday & Occasion, but alas there was not one. So I posted here, hope it is okay. )
224  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Hey, Look what I found! Uhmm...what did I find? on: April 06, 2008 12:06:02 PM
Found 2 3 lb. bags of these pieces of Lucite at the TS, and could not resist. There are loads in these two bags!

Now I'm trying to decide if I should use them for mosaic (and use resin for grout), or what. Jewelry? Ideas? Thoughts? Anyone know the possible origin of these pieces?

The pieces are smooth and solid with no holes or any thing.



Some samples of shapes, sizes and colors:






Here I was laying out some of the pieces just to play with them a bit.


Please, any ideas? Smiley

PS - Yes, thrift stores are like crack for me.  Grin
225  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Photography Challenge? on: April 05, 2008 06:54:36 PM
We obviously have lots of people who do photography, so why not do a challenge?

For me it would not necessarily have to have a prize, but that is just me.

Anyone else be interested or think this is a good idea?

Some possible Themes:
Closed (places that are old, closed or otherwise unoccupied)
Green (or any other colors would do)
smile (capture a smile)
old & new
fabric

Any other ideas are completely welcome. Smiley

Dollar store challenge entry had to made for under $10.00, and mine took $7.00.

Made from 1 - 10 inch melamine plate, 1 bag blue squiggles, 3 mirrors for candles, 1 bag blue glass gems and 1 bag clear glass gems.

When I was all done it reminded me of the "Blue Man Group". Had fun making this mosaic, so here is my entry for the Dollar Store Challenge.

228  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Just Zigzag or Serger? on: March 24, 2008 06:13:08 AM
Is this done with a serger or just a zigzag stitch?



If it is a serger could it be done with zigzag on a regular machine? Guess I'm not real clear on the point of a serger. Huh

Thanks for any help. Smiley

230  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / When Do Reminders Become Annoying? on: March 13, 2008 03:55:30 AM
When sending reminders, follow-ups or information requests on swap progress...at what point does it become annoying or harassing?

By this I am speaking of PM/email being sent when someone is not doing as they should in the swap (late, no communication, no follow through on communication consistently). Do you just try to keep getting the person on track?
