1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Brown Sugar Cake(?) on: October 29, 2010 06:02:01 PM
brown sugar is better for you, apparently
i've been told to use brown or golden sugar as they contain stuff other than sucrose so it's healthier than super processed white sugar which your body can break down but has to use reserves of vitamins and minerals to do so. We use golden sugar as the flavour isn't as strong as brown but it's not too different in price from white (which is subsidised by most governments, odd but what you going to do)
there's not a whole lot of difference nutritionally between the two so mostly it's down to taste

That's really interesting, thank you! I have never heard of "golden sugar" before, I'll definitely have to look for it the next time I'm at the store.

well done. i always think its a shame to have identical socks.
plus if they hold up in the wash, thats really all that matters.

hahaha, they've held up thus far ;]. and i've grown quite fond of the idea of mismatched toes. i think all of my socks will fearture different ones from now on.

Something I had never had before or even thought sounded that appetizing, but my friend convinced me.

The recipe made soooo much! We had to go back out and buy mini crusts (ten!) and still had a little left over. We bought raspberries to top it with.

4  COOKING / Dessert / Brown Sugar Cake(?) on: October 23, 2010 08:10:15 AM
My friend just got her dream job in New Orleans so I made her a cake!

The cake part itself was titled "Plain Layer Cake" with whipped vanilla frosting (tinted yellow) and a lemon filling.

I found the recipe for this cake in an old cookbook I got from my mom. It's from 1968 and all the recipes call for brown sugar rather than regular white sugar. Does anyone know why that is? Was only using brown sugar a weird health thing back then?

I've knitted one sock before, but never made its pair...maybe someday I'll finish it...

I tend to make my socks a little long, hence why one sock has a different colored toe :]

I decided to stencil a shirt for my friend because he's always sending me neat little packages and I've been lacking in my replies. I got the shirt at Walmart and found the stencil on www.stencilry.org -fabulous site.

yay for crappy webcame photos :[

crappy close up of lion; i splattered black and yellow pain -and purposefully smeared the black- over it, the lion was lonely.

and my friend wearing it :]. He loves it, I'm so happy ^_^
