241  COOKING / Dessert / Monkey Bread...YUMMY! on: June 22, 2008 11:50:28 AM
Made this for my guests Friday, and it was gone! It is so easy and looks difficult.  Smiley

Monkey Bread
    * 1/2 package of Rhodes Frozen Rolls
    * 1 cup turbinado sugar
    * 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    * 1/2 cup margarine
    * 1 cup packed brown sugar
    * 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    * 1/2 cup raisins
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray liberally bundt or tube pan.
2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
3. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Can be cut or pulled apart.


242  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Wrap Skirt and Shirt Combo on: June 16, 2008 11:50:45 AM
Love the ease of wrap skirts and cotton in the summer. So I made this wrap skirt and matching shirt for myself.


Detail of the shirt:


Added a loop onto the wrap skirt to keep the tie in place in the back.


All in all I'm pretty satisfied, but was wondering is it too Geranimalish?  Roll Eyes

All comments welcome. Smiley

243  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Slow Loading on: June 15, 2008 11:35:07 AM
The last few days Craftster seems very slow loading for me. No problems anywhere else, and have done all the usual to try to tackle problems that may be on my end.

Also a few times I've gotten this:


Notice where the ads usually are, the messages.

245  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic Ikea Lamps - Completed on: May 13, 2008 02:13:19 PM
Getting started on a new mosaic project with these two Ikea Althorn Table lamps I found at the thrift store.  Smiley

Since these will go in the same room the lamps will follow the same design as my glass on glass mosaic seen here.



Here are the lamps before:


The look like the old hair driers they used in hair salons.  Smiley

So far I've painted the bases black.


The shade designs I free handed so they are not identical, but have the same elements. Here are shots from various sides.








Comments, questions and suggestions always welcome. Hope to share more progress shots soon. Smiley
246  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / All Things Vintage: Pick Your Era on: May 06, 2008 01:29:22 AM
Disclaimer: Searched but did not find this swap idea, so if it has already been made 30 lashes with a wet noodle for me.  Cheesy

Otherwise:
A swap with vintage as the theme. Craft in your particular area of expertise. Your partner picks the era they like, but nothing post 1995.
Examples:
20's 30's - Art Deco - Art Nuevo
40's - war era
50's - silver screen
60's - Vietnam, JFK & RFK, Yo-yos, etc.
70's - hippies, Nixon, Woodstock, Desegregation,Hot Pants, etc.
80's - John Lenon Is Shot,Rubik's Cube, Sony Walkman, Reagan, etc.
90's - East and West Germany are re-united, Pre-ripped jeans, Ninja Turtles, etc.

More ideas can be dug up here.

The idea could use some refining, but you get the gist? Anyone interested?
247  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Miscellaneous Occasion/Holiday Crafting on: April 29, 2008 06:16:11 PM
Two times in the last few weeks I've had something to post in the Occasion & Holiday Forum, but with no heading for it to fit under.
#1
#2

I can understand that it would be impossible to create a section for each holiday, but to have a miscellaneous one would hold those that don't fit. Could there be a miscellaneous in the section?  Smiley
248  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Magnolia Lunch Centerpieces on: April 29, 2008 06:13:50 PM
Needed to make centerpieces for a lunch I am chairing this Shabbos for a family that is leaving our community. There will be 200 guests, and I am using white linen tableclothes with white/gold china. I wanted the centerpieces to be classic, but people be able to talk to each other without a flower in the way.

Found these white magnolias at the Dollar Tree, and liked them, but they were too white.


To age them, and make them look more real I gave them a tea bath. All 96 flowers...  Roll Eyes


This is the result


And here are all 22 centerpieces waiting for Friday table setup.




Comments or Suggestions always welcome. Smiley
249  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Matzah Lasagna on: April 24, 2008 04:13:05 PM
Yes, another Passover recipe.  Cheesy

This one is also tasty anytime of year.



Matzah Lasagna
2 eggs
1 lb. container cottage cheese
8 oz. shredded cheese
3 whole matzah
1 jar of pasta sauce
pepper, salt and oregano to taste

Beat eggs and add cotage cheese, and spices. Dampen matzah pieces with water. Don't let them get soggy. Put a small amount of sauce on the bottom of an eight inch square pan. Layer matzah, cottage cheese, sauce and cheese three times. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then cut to serve.

Surprisingly there is no taste difference between this, and using pasta. It tastes lighter though. Smiley
250  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
