1  UNITED STATES / New Jersey / Edison, NJ Yarn Store? on: December 19, 2005 12:58:48 PM
It seems the last post in this NJ forum was more than a month ago, but I'm not sure where else to ask this, so I'm just posting while knowing full well it could take a very long time to get a response...

I live in Edison and I've read online that there is a yarn store in my town.  I mapquested the address given (on Route 27), but I've driven up and down the street and have not even been able to find a building with the address!  I tried calling the phone number and it just rings and rings.  I would assume it closed down, but the reviews I read were fairly recent. (And even if it closed you'd think I'd be able to find a building with the address.)

Has anyone been to this store?  If so, where is it hidden?!  There aren't any other LYS within at least half an hour of my apartment and I'd love to check this one out, if only I could find it!

Thanks!   Cheesy
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / 80's Cartoon Barrettes on: June 20, 2005 03:44:08 PM
To begin with, this has nothing to do with the 80's cartoon swap that's going on.  My friend had an 80's-themed birthday party over the weekend, and I decided to make some fun barrettes to wear!  I used Leah's wonderful instructions for making marble magnets, but instead of attaching magnets to the back, I wound pink ribbon around two little barrettes, glued the marbles on, then glued little pink rhinestone hearts in the middle.  I'm so pleased with how they turned out!


Sorry for the glare in the picture, it's the best I was able to get.  In case you can't tell, the images are Rainbow Brite, a My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, and a Care Bear.
3  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Ice Cream! on: May 31, 2005 03:15:38 PM
Several years ago my favorite ice cream place served the best ice cream I've ever tasted - just once!  To this day I've been going back hoping they would again have chocolate peanut butter pretzel ice cream, but to no avail.

But a few weeks ago I got inspired: I have an ice cream maker, why not try to make it?  The results were delicious!  Here's the informal recipe as I made it:

1 recipe vanilla ice cream (I can give you a recipe if you need one)

About 1/4 cup peanut butter (I used chunky)

A few handfuls of peanut butter pretzels (I used Herr's peanut butter-filled pillow-shaped pretzels.  I imagine Combos would work too.  Worst case, use plain pretzels and add more peanut butter)

1/2 jar hot fudge sauce (unheated)

Prepare the vanilla ice cream, pour it in the ice cream maker, and let it do its thing.  (In other words, follow the instructions from the manufacturer.)  When it is about the consistency of soft-serve ice cream, add the peanut butter and pretzels and let it run about five minutes longer.  Then pour all of the ice cream into a container (make sure the ice cream doesn't come quite to the top) and freeze for 2-3 hours.  At this point, take the ice cream out of the freezer and add the fudge.  Mix gently to create a "ribbon" of fudge.  Now either put back in the freezer, or eat.

Of course, you could add the fudge when the ice cream is still in the ice cream maker, but then it gets blended in rather than being a "ribbon."  Or I suppose you can just use it as a topping too.  Whatever way, it's delicious.  Enjoy!   Smiley Smiley Smiley
