1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Iced Tea Juices? on: July 20, 2007 03:19:32 PM
I love iced tea juices, especially by Tazo.  I make iced tea all the time and was wondering what would happen if you brewed your tea with juice instead of water?  Is that asking for a disaster?  Anyone do this?  If so, any tea/juice combos you'd suggest?  Thanks!

Thanks for sharing!

My mexican rice comes from a box and it's far from good.  I'm going to try your mom's amazing rice!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Toaster Ovens on: June 20, 2007 11:41:34 AM
I love my toaster oven!  I got mine for $20 so it's probably one of the worst kinds you can get and I still think it's great. 

The only trouble I've had with mine is when I cook biscuits in it, I have to watch them close because the tops are more likely to burn.  That could be user error, though Smiley

I think everything is pretty capable of going in the toaster oven.  I've made muffins, cookies, meatloaf, chicken, etc in mine.  Just make sure the baking sheet/dish fits in before prepping your food in it  Tongue Lesson learned the hard way.

I haven't had much luck with the microwave, either.  If you get any good tips on it, I'll try to steal them.

Looks like you have tons of cookbooks to research now, but I have a little something to say!

Most cookbooks seem to aim at cooking for around 4 people and when I started cooking that made things harder on me.  So I am a huge fan of Taste of Home's Cooking for 2 Magazine.  Not only do they have recipes (with tons of pictures!), they have tips on cooking small meals.  Not a replacement for a good cookbook, but I think it's worth flipping through if you are in a magazine aisle anytime soon.  Might give you some good ideas  Smiley
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Questions About Journaling on: April 15, 2007 08:50:32 PM
I hate my handwriting too, but everyone else I show my pages to really likes that I use my own handwriting so I keep using it!

I agree with Marykz - someone will really appreciate your handwriting - no matter how bad you think it is Smiley

Sounds like this project could be fun!

Have you thought of some things this person would want to keep?  Or maybe just some thins she might have laying around - like receipts from an expensive shopping trip or a picture of a monkey from the zoo.

I don't know how long you'd want your scrapbook to be, but maybe you could do a page on partying and a page about the zoo and a page about her best friends, etc.  That way it's organized like a scrapbook.

Journaling can also be an important part of scrapbooking, so you can write little notes by all the items you put in the scrapbook that you think the character would say.

The story behind how I figured this one out is a little long and a tad bit incriminating, but I swear Oreos with some aeorsol cheese on top tastes like cheesecake.  You have to ignore the taste while chewing it up, but once you get the textures mixed together well, I swear it works.

Hmmm... I'm really too scared to try that one! Smiley

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: sweet 16! on: January 25, 2007 06:51:02 PM
I think if you start planning now, you'll find something you like!

You might want to ask people in your area for ideas on where to hold it.  Some of the weirdest places rent out (or provide for free) space for parties & events.   For example, in my town you can rent out an indoor garden at a museum or reserve a room in an art gallery for a get together.

For your party do you want to do any events or do you just hang out with friends?  That might effect where you want to hold it.

Remember your little kid parties?  I went to a lot at at pizza parlors, swimming pools, and bowling alleys that all had party space.  I know you probably want something a little (well, maybe a lot) more classy than that, but if you want to do something at your party, the space might be provided for you.

Well, we'll see what other ideas come up!  If you post more details, we might be able to help more!
