I want to make a really big piece.. well really big fpor me up till now the biggest single design I have done has been abt 4 by 4 on a tea towel.
I have a very large piece that I want to try. I have looked at Q SNAP frames online ... Il ike hte look of the fllor model. Are the snaps tigh enough to hold just one layer of fabric? THey are made for quiliting, os that would suggest that they are made to hold mulitple layers. ...
Thanks for any help you can give me!!

27  COOKING / Dessert / Flour substitutions? on: August 24, 2007 11:52:41 AM
I would like to make the recipe below for mom... I did a trial run & found that it was tasty but not enough binder, lots of fruit 7A nuts but not enough to hod it together...i want to tryagain doubling the flour etc....  BUT my Mom is allergic to wheat, & oats what type of flour shuld i try? I never baked withan anyother flours tht wheaat & white....
PS .... I'm not using the bakers edge pan, but thtis where i found the recipie.

Friendship Bars
About 16 bars

Feel free to use any friendly combination of dried fruits that strikes your fancy. The dates really do make the recipe, but I've tossed in a scoop of dried sour cherries or cranberries as well with great results. Whatever you do, stick with the quanties below and no one will get hurt.

For all the folks that absolutely feel they have to change things (and you know who you are...) a handful of candied ginger, a few swipes of freshly-grated citrus zest, or some crushed anise seeds might be welcome. For those of you who are gluten-free, I imagine you could substitute another starch for the flour, but otherwise I recommend sticking pretty close to the recipe, since it's pretty perfect just as it is.

6 tablespoons (50 gr) flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons (90 gr) packed, light or dark brown sugar
2 cups walnuts, almonds, or pecans (200 gr), toasted and coarsely chopped
1 cups (170 gr) dates, pitted and quartered
1 cup (170 gr) dried apricot halves (preferably from California)
1 large egg
teaspoon vanilla extract

Line an 8-inch (20cm) square pan across the bottom and up the sides with two sheets of aluminum foil, making a big criss-cross.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees (160 C) and position the rack in the center of the oven.

In a large bowl, toss together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the brown sugar, walnuts, dates, and apricots. Use your fingers to mix the fruit, separating any pieces sticking together.

Beat the egg and vanilla in a small bowl, then mix with the fruit and nut mixture until everything's coated with the batter. Spread the mixture in the baking pan and press to even it out.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the batter is golden brown and has pulled away just-slightly from the sides of the pan. Cool the bars in the pan.

Storage: Alice says you can store the bars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, but I've never kept them around that long.

Note: I used my Baker's Edge pan, which I've fallen head-over-heels for. Because the pan is larger than the 8-inch pan the recipe calls for, you should make 1 times the recipe. You can eyeball half an egg by breaking it into a bowl and stir it with a fork. (I have complete faith and just know you can do it.) And instead of driving yourself nuts trying to line this wacky pan with foil, grease the pan lightly instead.

More tips on using the pan can be found at the Baker's Edge web site.

29  COOKING / Dessert / Doctored cake mixes? Cupcake love on: July 30, 2007 08:17:00 AM
I love making cup cakes & I want to practice my decorating skills. I am looking for the ways you guys doctor up cake mixes to make them better!!

So Far I have the following ....

I usually use applesauce for the oil. I add the same amt of applesauce  as oil that is called for then just add 2 teaspoons of oil.

I have used almond flavor oil, just a  1/2 teaspoon, I am never sure how much of the flavor oils to add.

adding sprinkles or jimmies i usually sprinkle a few into the batter when i our it in the pan then swirl them in with a tooth pick.

I'd like to try other things ....
