1  COOKING / Dessert / Jam filled butter cookies! on: January 14, 2012 06:32:06 PM
Today I made jam filled butter cookies... from scratch. It was actually really easy and they turned out great! I got the recipe from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/jam-filled-butter-cookies/ and filled them with raspberry preserves.

3  COOKING / Dessert / Cake in a Mug. Cooked in the Microwave. Awesome! on: January 06, 2012 07:16:26 PM
This is the cake I made, in a mug, with the microwave. (Isn't that the coolest thing ever!) The cake recipe is from http://be-it-ever-so-humble.blogspot.com/2010/02/lemon-mug-cake.html. I added a lemon glaze. I made the glaze by mixing the juice of half a lemon and about two and a half spoon fulls of powdered sugar (a regular kitchen spoon, not a table spoon, or teaspoon).

Here it is with the glaze and a garnish.

Here is the cake before it came out of the mug.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blankie Bear on: August 17, 2011 03:14:39 PM
Here is another toy for my yet-to-be-born nephew. It's what I am going to call his Blankie Bear.
It comes with detachable blankie. I think I am going to have to make a few more things for the little bear to hold before I mail it to my sister. Maybe even a tiny blankie bear.

It's fine as ling as you use canning jars. They are made to withstand heat.

Thanks for the tip! Where do you store them, for how long, and how  did you reheat them?

Thanks! It is so easy. This is my first batch, but I'm sure they will only get better the more I do it. I forgot to tell you guys one thing. Instead of rolling out the dough I pushed it into the jar (except for the top). It seemed a better way to do it than rolling it out. I guess you could roll it out and cut out narrow triangles so that there wouldn't be a bunch of extra dough in places. I hope that makes since...
9  COOKING / Dessert / Jar Pies, Pies in Jars, 16 oz of Pie Goodness! on: July 02, 2011 05:43:50 PM
Today I was inspired by http://blogs.babble.com/family-kitchen/2011/06/20/cherry-and-blueberry-star-pies-in-jars/
I took my regular apple pie recipe, divided it into thirds, and made PIES IN JARS!
I used 16 oz canning jars.

I just preheated the oven and a cookie sheet to 400. Place the jars on the cookie sheet. It took about 20 min. less than this recipe normally takes. Half way through I rotated the jars. I watched until the crust was turning golden brown and the filling was bubbling.

I agree! I'm about to finish my first dress on this machine and it has been a great sewing experience. It's so nice to sew on a machine that I don't have to fight all of the time!
