1  Re: Pumpkin Pie (makes 2 pies) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hat-and-bag-lady on: November 09, 2017 07:45:25 AM
This is a totally new pie crust recipe to me and I can't wait to try it. Thanks for the humor, too.  Cheesy
I think Mum got the recipe off of a Shortening box. (Crisco or Tenderflake)
I got the little joke off the intnet (I cant take credit for it)
(I also gleaned this one off the intnet. I cant take credit for it either)

So, off to the Purity Flour cookbook I go. (A baking mood is not to be wasted, you know.)

Sift together:
1 C. Flour
1/2 tsp. B. Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt

In a larger bowl, cream together,
1/2 C. Butter
1/2 C. White Sugar
1/4 C. Brown Sugar (Lightly packed)
Beat in,
1 Egg
1 tsp. Vanilla
Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in dry ingredients.
Fold in:
1 C. Chocolate Chips
1/2 C. Chopped nut meats (pecans or walnuts)

Drop batter by teaspoon about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

3  *Name brand* Peanut Butter Easy Cookies in Dessert by hat-and-bag-lady on: October 12, 2017 11:41:02 AM
My sister & her friend saw this several years ago, and were debating about it. They eventually decided that there was no way it could ever work. Then they said there aren't that many ingredients; let's give it a try. So they did, and it worked quite well. (And, they din't have 7 or 8 dozen cookies to bake and have eaten!)

So, this morning, due to a sudden, inexplicable urge for PB cookies, I also decided to give the "easy-peasy" recipe a try. It worked quite well.

The best part, it is supposed to only make 2 dozen. I've had 1/4 of the end result, and have had my craving satisfied.

1 C. {name brand} Peanut Butter
1 C. Sugar
1 egg.

Preheat oven to 325*F. Get out Cookie Sheet.
Mix all 3 ingredients well.
Form into 24 dough balls. Squish with fork.
Bake 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
Cool on pan on rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and continue cooling.

4  Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hat-and-bag-lady on: October 11, 2017 11:36:53 AM
I copied this from a page called "The slow roasted Italian"

2 C. Flour
1 Tblsp. B. Power
1 Tblsp. Sugar
1 Tblsp. Garlic powder

1 C. Milk
8 Oz mild Cheddar cheese, Shredded
1 tsp. dried Parsley

3/4 tsp. Kosher salt, divided
3/4 C. unsalted butter, divided
     (I used regular salt and salted butter. I don't think it made any difference)

1. Preheat oven to 450* F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (I use muffin tin, and cupcake liners)
2. Melt 1/2 C. Butter. Set aside.
3. Mix flour, B. power, sugar, garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Mix well. Add melted butter and milk; mix only until moist. Fold in shredded cheese.
4. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake 10 - 12 minutes until golden brown.
5. While biscuits are baking, melt remaining 1/4 cup butter, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and dried parsley. Stir with pastry brush.
6. When done, remove biscuits from oven, brush with parsley mixture, serve and enjoy.

Makes about a dozen.

5  "Bourne Identity" bank bag replica -- kind of in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hat-and-bag-lady on: August 08, 2017 11:19:30 PM
A few years ago when I watched the DVD of "The Bourne Identity", I thought the bag he'd carried from the bank was cool looking.
Being a seamstress, I decided that it wouldn't be that difficult to replicate.

[^these photos gleaned from the int'net. I don't know whose they are.]

Red Canvas, eyelets around the top, cord that can tie to an eyelet.
First, I found a pattern (Butterick 6678), bought the elements required, and started.

I, of course, wasn't certain how to do the black stencils around the top, so used reflective tape. Instead of the word "Brennen" (German for "Burn", I found out), I put on my last name.  Then, because I felt like it, I added an appliqu of a Coffee Cup.
I think it's a good bag. My husband snitched it and was keeping some work items in it. This one and another I'd made got really filthy. He wasn't sure if it would work, but he flung them into the washing machine. These pics are after the wash.

A photo of the front

And closed

And, the hook clipped to the eyelet

According to my sewing journal, I made this in March 2008
... 9 years ago  Shocked

I don't mind it at all. My husband is quite impressed with it, and with how well it cleaned up.

What do you think, Craftsters and guests? Feedback welcome.

6  Medical Swoon "Ethel" in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hat-and-bag-lady on: August 06, 2017 12:50:25 PM
I started this because I ... er ... located this cheerful printed Twill in my Linen Closet. (Don't remember buying it or what for. It was a remnant, by the tag on it.)

Because I am in an "Ethel" groove, I checked to see if it would work for one. I had enough, but barely.

For a bit of difference, I added Rick-Rack to the pocket.

And, 2 inside pockets, and a Key-leash.

And, an action shot.

So,  what do you think Craftsters and guests?
Feedback welcome.

7  Re: Swoon "Ethel" Tote bag -- take 2: relined in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hat-and-bag-lady on: July 31, 2017 02:17:10 PM
Thank you, Craftylittlemonkey.
I carried it today, and I'm pleased to report that it works even better now. The writing implements and paper, my Daytimer, and personal effects are corralled.
There's lots of room for the larger items, still. And there's still the outside pockets to fill.

It has definitely come together as an improvement.

I've heard it said, "Sometimes things fall apart, so better things can come together."

I have re-lined this bag, after the lining fell apart.

I'd like to think that it's now improved.

The print is a kind of foggy forest look.
I also added 2 more pockets.

What do you think, Craftsters and guests? Improved, or just alright, or same-old?

So, I've delivered this to her. She's happy with it: and she says her Mom is looking forward to receiving it.

Thank you, JS.
She seems to like both of them.

I gave a Zucchini loaf in this one (superstition says, "A bag given empty will stay empty."). And I included the recipe as well.

So, she's happy with them.
