1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies!!! on: November 20, 2010 02:36:24 PM

VikingBabe, you earn huge points from my husband and me for the candied bacon recipe!  How long do you cook the bacon in the oven, and at what temp usually?  I had bacon creme brulee at a local restaurant this year, and it was amazing!  It was topped with candied bacon, and there were little chunks of candied bacon in the custard itself -- pure heaven!  It was really thick, lean bacon and it was awesome once candied.  I've wondered about how to make candied bacon since then.

My TV boyfriend, Alton Brown gets all the credit for the candied bacon recipe. I just leave the pecans off the bacon.   http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/praline-bacon-recipe/index.html.
Let me add one instruction:
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR KITCHEN.  This can get very ugly, very fast.  So plan on being right there, ready to rescue your oven from, fire, smoke, etc.  Do NOT do anything else while you are candying bacon.  Trust me.

This recipe would stand up to the custard of a creme brulee.

Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies are a favorite of mine!  I candy the bacon before I make them - just bake on a cooling rack in the oven, sprinkled with brown sugar until golden and crisp, then cool, chop, etc.

Also, here it what is nasty:  Turkey Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies.  NAS.  T.

Just got here Friday!  Can't wait to visit House of 66 Cents, but should probably wait until we're out of TLF...

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Bat mitsvah ideas on: November 01, 2006 10:41:06 PM
I am in the middle of planning my daughter's Bat Mitzvah.
I think that what you and your friend need to do is sit down and have a brainstorming session.  Just write down everything you come up with and then start determining the ten best ideas.  Then, flesh out a brief idea of what each theme means (centerpieces, music, decor, etc.).  Thin them out from there.

We decided to go with a simple dance party - the only theme thing is rock and roll.  She picked colors, will have simple decorations and will be able to concentrate on having fun, not planning a big entrance and worring about whether everything is exactly perfect and on time.  It's way less stressful.

Here are a few photos of the amazing blue jean recliner!  T-Shirt pillows are this weekend's project.

I did this yesterday!  Thanks for the inspiration!  My daughter had this ratty old recliner that was ripped up on the sides and just plain ugly.  We worked on it yesterday morning and in under 2 hours we were done with a fantastic piece of furniture.  It's comfortable and adorable.  We're going to make t-shirt pillows to go with it.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Altoid Tin Themed Swap Gallery on: March 31, 2006 06:54:42 PM
Here's what I sent:
(the theme was chickens, in case you can't tell Grin)
The stuff in the tin was: a necklace with the art of Gervasio Gallardo, http://www.lavatyart.com/galleries/ggallardo/ggallardo.htm , who I adore, a felt chicken pin, 3 magnets, some buttons, and a mini-journal.

And I am a total doofus for not checking in here earlier.  Couldn't get a decent picture to save my life.

First, thank you meowari, for the amazing, stunning and adorable stuff.  The chicken pin got worn immediately.  It is my new favorite chicken, and that is saying something!

I just adore everything that you sent and have it right on my desk so that I can gaze upon its fabulousness on a daily basis.

Thank you so much for signing up to be a swap angel.  I can't tell you how much it brightened my day to receive that beautiful tin on my birthday!

A gal after my own heart!
I found 12 small cigar tins at the thrift store last week. They are 4" x 4" square.

Um, I also sort of have a collection of dishwasher metal tins (the Jetsons) which I have painted black to start storing my PrismaColors in.

And about 40 of these (http://www.adagio.com/) (the small metal tins) that I got at a craft supply swap last year.

And a few others...
I am addicted to tins.
