12  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Aroma jems?? on: February 19, 2007 01:21:33 AM
I went to a local swap meet today and came across something that completely blew my mind. They were these hard, dissolvable little colored rocks of salt that were fragrant and well... colored.  Cheesy  The woman was selling them for $6 and the little bag was about 2"x3". She said she made them herself. They were amazing  ((and SO fragrant!! We were out doors and I smelled them from about 20 yards away   Shocked  )) but being me, I have to find out how things are made and she smiled and told me its an old family secret.

Now its killing me.

They were so cool and I was wondering, since all of you are so wonderful and innovative... can someone help me figure this out?

Here's her link

She's based out of southern California. Even if no one can help me figure it out, at least you have a link to an awesome product. 
13  COOKING / Dessert / Green Tea Cupcakes~? on: January 16, 2007 03:13:46 PM
I'm quite interested in this. Has anyone tried these? I read that you would need matcha powder. We have a bunch of Asian markets in my area so buying the stuff wouldn't be a big deal. HOWEVER... I have 2 big containers of the Lipton Green Tea with honey and lemon powder to use...

::taps chin::

Anyone want to try this with me and share their results?

Green Tea Cupcakes
Makes 12

1 stick butter/ margarine
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup green tea
~ 1 tablespoon green tea powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 350F
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs. Mix. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and green tea powder together. Mix flour with the butter mixture, alternating with the tea and milk. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Stick into oven and bake 25 minutes

Whipped Cream Topping
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon water
Powdered sugar
Green tea powder

In saucepan, mix gelatin with water. When gelatin is soft, stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved. Let cool, but don't let it harden!

Whip cream with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Pour in gelatin slowly while still whipping it. This stabilizes the cream. Add sugar and tea powder to taste. If you want the color but not all the taste of the tea, add 1 drop green food coloring, 2 drops yellow.

This is the pic of the results online
14  COOKING / Dessert / Homemade fudge Question on: January 16, 2007 02:01:34 PM
I made two batches of fudge on Christmas eve.
Ususally in my house, sweets dont last but they were lost in the mix of leftovers and such. They surfaced and know I have my questions.
I have them stored in zip locks in the fridge. How long before they go bad? How would I know.

Thanks for reading
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help from new mommies on: November 30, 2006 10:44:12 PM
Soooo.... my friend is having a baby girl and I want to make her these adorable booties... for the baby that it.

I don't know what size to make the booties for the baby. I was wondering if any of you new mommies can perhaps measure the length of your baby's foot so I can get an average foot size of a new born baby.
Am I making things too difficult??       I'm going to make the bootie for a baby size 3 months anyhow, but is that still going to be too small?  I'm just making sure and I'm covering my behind.

I know we're all crafty ladies. We all have a tape measure around.     

Thank you for being patient with me.

16  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / New to this topic. Pomegranate ideas anyone??? on: November 29, 2006 03:42:58 PM
Huh   Huh  Huh  Huh  Huh  Huh  Huh My kitchen floor looks like I got in a bloody fight... that's not the point.

I used my citrus juicer to extract pomegranate juice . It works really well. I wanted the juice so I can add it to iced green tea. The problem is that the process leaves a lot of pulp. I have maybe 4 cups of pulp.
I really don't want to toss it, but is there anything I can use it for??
I was thinking about blending it with a bit if the juice and making a cake, but I didn't want to leave any of the bits of seed in the cake. Will this work? Any ideas??

Help, anyone??

Comments appreciated
