I love this!

Here's a White Chocolate chip cookie recipe from allrecipes that reviewers compare to the Subway ones.

My M-I-L makes these tortilla rollup pinwheels with:

ranch cream cheese, softened (reg cream cheese mixed with powdered ranch dressing or just a tub of flavored cream cheese)
chopped red peppers and black olives

spread on flour tortilla, roll up, chill for a little bit, cut off the ends, then slice into 1/2 inch or so slices and arrange on a plate.

Quick and cheap and they are tasty too. 

Have a fun party! 
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Pasta Carbonara - without cream? on: May 08, 2007 06:25:38 AM
When I make carbonara, I usually first crisp the bacon and drain on paper towels.  Then I drain off some of the fat, saute chopped onion and sometimes peas.  Cook and drain the pasta, returning it to the pot.  Add one lightly beaten egg, mix it up til its cooked in, add the onion and pea mixture, and some warmed chicken broth.  When I serve it, I have more chicken broth on the table, the bacon to crumble on top and parmesan cheese to sprinkle on.  Sometimes I don't add an egg, and just use the chicken broth and I think its still good---I like it better than cream, and it's so good to dunk Italian bread in!
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Bringing salad to work - help! on: March 28, 2007 07:20:36 AM
If you like rice and pasta, consider making salads with one of those as a base---tiny orzo pasta, spirals, elbows, thin angel hair, whatever.  I like to do some greens, cook and cool some angel hair pasta, then toss with a mixture of honey, mustard, mayo and lemon juice and add cooked chicken, sliced peppers, mandarin orange segments, nuts, cucumbers.  I love chicken salad with cranberries or raisins and pecans and I use a little mayo and mix it with light sour cream so its not so globby.

Orzo, black olives, feta, cucumber and tomato is yummy too.  Rachael Ray has a cheeseburger salad (foodnetwork.com) that's lettuce, pickles, tomatoes and little mini cheeseburgers.  You could do something like that maybe with leftover meatloaf or burgers.

I really like Erika Knight's Knitting for Two...lots of patterns for babies and expectant mothers.
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Only Using Paypal on: January 18, 2007 05:49:55 AM
I accept paypal, check or money order, but I make it clear in my "message to buyer" that their item will be shipped only after I have received the check/MO and it has cleared.  This way, I don't risk the chance of getting shorted and sending out an item prematurely.  It does prolong the transaction a bit, but since most people use Paypal (I've only had one person use a MO), I don't mind it once in awhile.   

I have sometimes noticed some confusion about Paypal, too, where a buyer interprets the Paypal logo alongside the credit card logos as "oh, I can either pay via paypal OR give you my credit card info."  I find that explaining to the buyer that Paypal is a safe third party for buyers and sellers to use and stressing that the big plus is mediation if a transaction goes awry and that as a seller, I never have access to your credit card information helps smooth any potential leeriness about using it.

www.hemptraders.com is a great source for hemp yarns, both dyed and undyed.  If they don't have a bulky weight (I think they only have worsted), you can always hold it doubled when you knit.

This site, in addition to its free sweater pattern generator has an alphabetical database of stitch patterns from all different sources--cables, knit and purl patterns and lace patterns. Oh!  There's also a translation page with common phrases in knitting patterns in a variety of languages.

oh, pretty!  I've become obsessed with lace knitting of late myself, not that I am getting very much done with Christmas present knitting, but this is gorgeous and makes me miss my lace knitting even more--I love dark yarns in lace!
