1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / What do you call 'em & Where can I find 'em? Tiny squishy things... on: February 04, 2006 10:08:19 PM
I'm looking for some little embellishment thingys-- I have no idea what to call them so net searching is no good.  The girl at Hobby Lobby thought I was nuts.

They are small, maybe the size of a quarter usually, and made of a satiny material (acetate?) and have a thin layer of foam inside to make them squishy.  The edges are heat cut/melted together.  I've seen them in packages before, but now... nowhere.  They come in every shape-- ladybugs, hearts, flowers, happy faces, you name it.

Anyone know what to call them and/or where to find them?

EDIT: I found some here: http://cgi.ebay.com/50-STRAWBERRY-EMBELLISHMENTS-4-CARDMAKING-FREE-P-P_W0QQitemZ8255712918QQcategoryZ75572QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

But what to call them?
2  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Croissants... mmm... and easy! on: January 21, 2006 06:29:53 PM
I just have to share this recipe!  My best girlfriend let me in on the secret...

Use a can of croissants, unroll, and put one square of Special Dark chocolate inside each and roll them up to form croissants.  Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake according to the label.

Let them cool just long enough that you can hold one without being burned.  Eat!

They're not good cold, so eat 'em quick!  And they're obviously not health food, unless you count mental health...  Grin
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / US Restaurant-style Chinese sauces? Call for recipes~ on: January 19, 2006 06:43:16 PM
I need help with making chinese sauces at home... I can get the rice, meat, veggies, etc. all the way I like, but the sauces are never just right.  I don't want to use MSG, and I can't afford pricey ingredients, but there must be something I'm missing!  Also, I can't seem to get the hang of cornstarch; it always gets gooey.

What works for you?  I'm hoping to make a brown sauce (restaurants around here call it garlic sauce, sezchuwan, or mongolian) and spicy sauce like for General Tso's or sesame chicken.

One more thing... why can't you buy a good sweet and sour sauce at the grocery?!  Can you make it at home?

I don't have an ethnic store in this small town, only chains.

Thanks for any recipes or tips!
4  Texas / Texas: Coastal / Houston/Austin corridor ribbon stores? on: January 14, 2006 12:45:35 PM
I'm hoping to find a hidden treasure... a ribbon store that doesn't have exorbitant prices!

I would love to hear of any Houston-Austin area stores that sell ribbon, preferably grosgrain or novelties, that aren't the standard Hobby Lobby type place.  Wholesalers, warehouses, even thrift stores where you've found ribbon before...

Thanks a bunch!
