12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Kitschy Pampered Chef party ideas?? on: January 11, 2007 09:06:19 PM
I'm having a Pampered Chef party and want it to be fun and a little different. If you haven't been to one, they are similiar to the old Tupperware parties but based on kitchen products.
The theme will be chocolate and the night before Valentines Day.
Any ideas on making it even more kitschy than a home product party already is?

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I Love Freecycle! on: January 03, 2007 02:19:53 PM
Yippe-skippe! I just received 25 old Martha Stewart magazines to cut up for Valentines Day crafts from www.freecycle.org. After sharing several items, I posted a "wanted" for old Martha Stewart mags and got them the same day from a crafty Mom who ends up living 6 blocks from me. Clean baby food jars and old paperbacks are other free crafty items I've received through Freecycle.
15  COOKING / Dessert / Polka Dot Squirrel Cookies! on: January 02, 2007 10:13:38 AM
Just before Christmas, I had a Holiday Cookie Exchange party at my house. I made 8 dozen of these sweet little squirrels. To keep them soft, I roll them out extra thick- about 1/2". I posted the recipe and 'how to throw your own cookie exchange' here http:///www.kitschy-koo.blogspot.com.

Favorite Big, Fat Rolled Sugar Cookies
Prep Time: 20 minutes, 1 hour to overnight to chill, 8 min baking
Yield: 60 cookies
1 1/2c butter, softened
2c sugar
4 eggs
1tsp vanilla
5c flour
2tsp baking powder
1tsp salt
1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs & vanilla, combining well after each addition. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover and chill at least one hour or overnight.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out a managable piece of dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut out shapes with cookie cutter or floured drinking glass rim. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet (use parchment paper if you have it).
3. Bake 6-8 minutes. Cool completely. Frost if you' d like.

Royal Icing
This is icing dries very hard, perfect for shipping or carrying to a cookie exchange! Can also be used as the mortar on gingerbread houses.
Yield: icing for at least 60 cookies
4 egg whites
4c pre-sifted powdered sugar
1tsp lemon extract (or vanilla)
1. Beat egg whites until frothy in a large bowl on high speed. Gradually add sugar and extract until thickened. Seperate into glass bowls to mix in food coloring. I prefer gel food coloring that retain vivid colors and don't make your icing runny.
Tips: Let each color of icing sit at least an hour to prevent colors from mixing. Use your 40% off coupon at Michael's craft store to invest in a little set of gel food coloring- mix into your pizza dough, cookies, you name it. The kids love it!
