1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Cast iron pans! on: November 04, 2008 06:01:14 AM
Quoted from cory: "actually, when i first got my pans, i just started cooking in them and let the seasoning accrue on its own

if you're planning on cooking some bacon any time soon, thats a great way to get it going

or frying anything. just cooking with a good bit of fat works great"

You know this makes sense. When people first started using cast iron pans, they didn't have an oven to season it with. They just started using them.  Smiley
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's for supper? on: October 15, 2008 04:37:05 PM
I love this post. It's so much fun to read.

I am going to saute chicken breasts. I rub the chicken breasts with a garlic clove. I don't know how much flavor that transfers so I insert small pieces into little pockets I cut in the breasts. (I have a lot of garlic to get rid off). I then season them with salt, pepper, and onion powder. After they're seasoned, I drizzle them with olive oil and Worcestershire sauce and give them a good rub down with the liquids. It's a super quick way to season any cut of meat. I pour in a little bit more oil in a pan and saute them right up. With practice I am able to make them slightly crispy on the outside but tender and juicy on the inside. My husband loves them! I usually add some thing very boring like pasta or rice to go along side. But my favorite would be roasted red potatoes. We love those too but don't have them tonight.  Sad
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Baked Italian dishes recipe questions on: October 15, 2008 04:07:44 PM
Does any one have any baked italian recipes they are willing to share? I am primarily looking for pasta, tomato sauce, and mozzarella chesse recipes. My favorite restaurant has great baked ziti, tortellini, and ravioli dishes that I just love. I've tried replicating it but I think I am messing up on the quantity parts.

I have one other baking question. What mozzarella cheese bakes the best? I want to replicate that gooey greasy cheese that the restaurants have mastered. But every time I use either fresh mozzarella or pre-shredded mozzarella it comes out very rubbery. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

If you have suggestions, thank you in advance.  Smiley

I've read through the posts but I can't remember if this has been talked about. Do you season it first or just start cooking with them?

You're welcome.
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Does anyone remember...? on: October 13, 2008 04:48:49 PM
What if you outfitted a big cardboard box and write "FRAGILE" on it (Wear it of course) and then made a hat that resembles the lamp shade? I can't think of a way to costume yourself as a leg covered in sexy panty hose. I googled "Christmas story leg" as images and a lot of pictures came up. Any generic lampshade that is beige in color and tapers down the bottom would be great. And then just glue gun some black beading on the bottom. Maybe find a styrofoam circle to insert at the bottom of the lampshade, cut a hole out of it, and then you could wear it comfortable as a hat. 

Hope this helps! Good luck  Smiley.

Your costumes scare the living crap out of me. Please no invite to the haunted house. I'm mostly kidding but your costume is simply amazing. It is beyond crafting. Very cool! Smiley
9  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Halloween Craft Pumpkin! on: October 13, 2008 02:39:41 PM
This is by far the best craft project I have ever seen. It is so awesome. I love everything from the mini decorations to the glitter detail around the opening. It helps that I love Halloween too! I want to make one really bad. I have the faux pumpkins but haven't gotten to a Michael's yet to check out the mini decorations.

But thank you! Thank you so much for sharing. There is no way I would have created something like this (if I manage to) on my own.  Cheesy

Was it a group project submission? You mentioned that you can't wait to see what other people do.
10  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Re: Craft Challenge #32 - DIY Halloween Costumes - Due Nov 1 - Nov 5 2008 on: October 13, 2008 02:25:44 PM
I can't wait to see the submissions for this one. My hubby and I just want to stay home and watch cheesy 80's horror movies. But maybe I will enter this next year, if there is a costume challenge.

Good luck to everybody! Smiley
