The square are actually these http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat3089&PRODID=prd22963 in clear.

I love them for when I do scrapbooking!

That's neat!  I haven't been to a JoAnn recently, but I'll be sure to look for them the next time I go.   Smiley

I received today, from Lindyv321, and I'm so excited!  The package is great, and I can't wait to post the pictures tomorrow.  I'm so glad the package got here today, as if it took any longer it probably would've been delayed because of tropical storm Fay.  I will definitely be sending this weekend.   Grin

Thanks!  I may just have to try your recipe for vegan cupcakes.  I'm not vegan, but I always like to try something new  Smiley

For some ideas, how about:

  • Some art for the kitchen (mine has none...  Cry )
  • a mug-cozy
  • Chef Hat
... I'm running out of ideas!  I'll post more later if I can think of more.

Cool!  It looks mighty tasty  Cheesy

I'm currently trying to grow some things, but all of them have died (except for the cress and basil)....    Cry I'm hoping that if I try again, it won't wind up so badly.

Recipe #1
Spaghetti with Lemon and Basil
cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup juice from 2 lemons
2 teaspoons grated zest from 1 lemon
1 small garlic clove, minced to a paste
Salt
2 ounces parmesan cheese, grated (about 1 cup)
Ground black pepper
1 pound spaghetti
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
cup shredded fresh basil leaves

1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot.  Meanwhile, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, and teaspoon salt together in a small bowl, then stir in the parmesan cheese until thick and creamy; set aside.

2. Add 1 tablespoon salt and the spaghetti into the boiling water and cook, stirring often, until the pasta is al dente.  Reserve cup of the pasta cooking water, then drain the pasta and return to the pot.  Stir in the olive oil mixture, butter, and basil, and toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve, adding the reserved pasta cooking water as needed to loosen the sauce.

Tender Focaccia
2 cups boiling water
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
cup potato flour or 1/3 cup potato flakes
cup nonfat dry milk
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 to 3 tablespoons to grease the pan and the surface of the dough
to teaspoon kosher salt, sea salt, or fleur de sel, for topping

Put the hot water and 2 cups of the flour in a large bowl and beat for several minutes to develop a smooth batter.  If you have the time, add 1/8 teaspoon yeast once the batter has cooled to lukewarm, and set the sponge aside for several hours or overnight/ this helps develop flavor in the finished loaf, as well as the soft interior texture.

Whisk the potato flour with the remaining flour, dry milk, yeast, and salt.  Add this to the batter a little at a time, while continuing to beat.  Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Beat, by hand with a large spoon or with the paddle attachment of a mixer set at medium speed, for 8 to 10 minutes, changing to a cough hook when the dough begins to hold together.

After the dough has become smooth and shiny, put it in an oiled bowl, cover it with a damp towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise for 30 minutes.

Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a 12- or 14-inch round pan, or 1 tablespoon olive oil into each of two 8-inch round pans.  Place the dough in the oiled pan(s), gently stretching it to fit.  Let the dough rest for 30 minutes, then stretch it out a little more.  At this point you may refrigerate the dough in the pan(s), tightly covered, for up to 24 hours.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Just before baking the focaccia, dimple it with your fingers, brush it with a little olive oil, and sprinkle it with coarse salt or a few sprigs of fresh herb.  Bake the focaccia for 25 to 30 minutes, until its deep brown all over.  Remove it from the pan(s) and cool it for 15 minutes before eating.  Serve with flavored olive oil, or split for sandwiches.

Blueberry Grunt
Fruit:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice (if the berries arent tart)
1 quart blueberries (or other berries), cleaned

Dough:
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup buttermilk (When I made this, it worked fine with regular milk and a tiny amount of vinegar)

Blend the water, sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a skillet and stir in the blueberries.  Bring to a gentle boil over low heat.

While the blueberries are heating, blend the dry dough ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  Rub in the butter with your fingertips.  Quickly stir in the buttermilk.

Drop the dough in blobs over the blueberry mixture.  Cover and cook over low heat until the biscuit dough is done, about 15 minutes.  To serve, scoop up the berries and a biscuit and invert on a plate, so that the berries fall over the biscuit.  Spoon extra berry mixture over the biscuit.

I would love to join this swap!  I would put my favorite art movement rather than favorite artist (because I can't pick just one  Wink ).  I'll be able to join this swap whenever it starts.  It sounds like a lot of fun!   Grin
