1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: Tiramisu from Cake Patterns + stripes for the first time on: October 22, 2014 07:54:46 AM
Very nice, and flattering! I'll have to look online for this company!
2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dyeing newbie-dumb question on: September 05, 2014 08:38:32 AM
My first adventure in yarn dyeing and have just one question before making a final decision on method: has anyone tried using a tie-dye kit?

I will be dyeing a lace weight 100% alpaca, so any advise would be welcome!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Soft Pretzels on: November 02, 2012 06:14:15 PM
Oh no!!! Now I'm hungry for crab pretzels.  Before our daughter was born DH and I used to make soft pretzels (and variants) several times a year.  Not difficult to do, just time consuming.

Oh, my! Don't let my 6 y.o. see this!!! It's bad enough I'm making a Tangled costume for Halloween. She's systematically working on Disney characters. I've been doing it for 3 years, but I'm not 'brave' enough to try one without a pattern.

5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: what foods are appetizing when pureed? on: January 09, 2012 07:02:59 PM
Way back in the day (we were teenagers then) my sister had jaw surgery, and one thing she seemed to like was macaroni and cheese in the blender.  Since it's been the best part of 30 yrs, I can't remember much else... sorry!
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Traditional cooking? on: January 09, 2012 06:50:28 PM
This is from my grandmother who is in her late 80's...chicken noodles and mashed potatoes.  It's an all-out carb fest, but yummy!  You cook egg noodles (I like the kluski style) in chicken broth with meat, kind of like for soup, but lots more noodles than for soup; then serve them over mashed potatoes in a bowl. 

Umm...I might have to make this for dinner this week. Now that I'm older, I at least make an attempt at being healthy by adding a salad  Grin
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you organize your fabric? on: October 17, 2011 06:45:11 PM
  Right now there is no organizing my stash.  I am sharing my "sewing studio" with my 5 y.o. that I am cyberschooling. When things get displaced, it kind of stays that way because so much time is taken up with the educational process. 

  Man, I miss the loads of time I had before she came along!  (Love her dearly, but...)
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Any good rose (petal) recipes on: June 08, 2011 06:38:35 PM
  Two weeks ago I finally got brave enough to try cooking/baking with petals from my very fragrant antique roses.  The resulting pound cake was outstanding! Now I'm ready for more more adventures, but personally, I'm not very inventive.  Does anyone have a recipe to share?
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Your favorite tip/trick/ingredient? on: May 15, 2011 12:18:35 PM
My favorite things are, unfortunately (sp?) more expensive than I am willing to buy right now in this economic tight spot.  But for sake of argument they are:

1. Vanilla "Paste"- this has a thick syrup consistancy.  Fabulous deep vanilla flavor and has the little seeds in it.  I used it for all manner of baked goods, ice cream and more!

2. Smoked sea salt (flake type)- Yummy on fish, eggs and Mac'n' Cheese! Use as a garnish on these dishes, not as the main flavoring agent.
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is a walking foot necessary? on: May 15, 2011 12:00:12 PM
I'm with BethieB!  Walking foot is fine, as long as you want a straight line.  I like to use handquilting templates when machine quilting- I just like figural designs more.  So, I spray baste and pin like mad, as well as scrunch and push and pull.  BUT I get the motif I want instead of compromising (or spending $$$$ on a long arm machine).
