1  COOKING / Dessert / Mini-Monkey Brains on: September 18, 2008 02:57:28 PM
I went searching for a cinnamon roll recipe this morning, and found a Sticky Monkey Brain recipe. I'd never heard of Monkey Brains before, but I thought the kids would enjoy partaking in such a delicacy without the risk of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. Smiley

3 packages refrigerated biscuit dough
1/3 c white sugar
2 ts ground cinnamon
1/2 melted butter
1/2 brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F/156 C.

Mix together the white sugar and cinnamon, set that aside. Cut up the biscuits into smallish pieces.

Roll the pieces of dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture, then smoosh them into the mini bundt pans.

Mix together the butter and brown sugar, then spoon the mixture over the dough. To make it easier on yourself, put all the mini bundt plans onto a cookie sheet and then stick 'em in the oven.

Bake for twenty minutes.


The original recipe called for pecans as well, but I'm not a fan, so I skipped those. The recipe will work if you use one large bundt pan, six medium sized ones or a dozen super mini ones (I took this route).

All of them together, I didn't quite expect them to explode like they did.

A macro shot, because they're my favorite. Smiley

The nice, ready to eat shot.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Back Zipper to Side Zipper? on: November 20, 2007 10:52:12 AM
I just bought Simplicity 3673, a rereleased 1950's Retro pattern and was wanting to do the full skirt version. As I was reading some stuff online, I found out that the original version had a side zipper- something I'd very much prefer. Is there a way to (easily...) put a side zipper in instead of the very obvious middle of the back zipper, or should I see if I could find the original?
At the same time I purchased the pattern, I bought some goooorgeous deep blue crepe-back satin and am so excited about making this. It should be fantastic.

I'm working on Butterick 5026, view B (http://www.butterick.com/item/B5026.htm?search=5026&page=1) and everything had been going swimmingly, even though I'd forgotten some things in my several year sewing hiatus, but then I got to sewing the bodice. (Haha, they say do that first, but I was intimidated and did the skirt before the bodice) The top of the bodice fits fine, but right under the biggest part of my boobs it sticks out and just doesn't look very nice and I have no idea how to fix that. I've looked at some of the FBA things that people have posted, but have just been confused, could someone explain to me in layman's terms how to fix everything so it fits right?
Also, if I decided to skip the boning would that really impact the fit of the dress?
Thanks for your help!
