Thanks for sharing, this looks like a nice quick recipe for week nights... as long as I remember to marinate the tofu in advance.
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Warm Paneer, Courgette & Pepper salad. on: March 10, 2010 05:34:06 PM
Looks great! I make my own paneer, but I don't have a lot of good recipes, it usually end up in a spaghetti or in a romaine salad.

Thanks for the spices idea! I make steel-cut oats in my crock pot for time to time, it will be delicious with your recipe.
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Homemade Laundry Soap ** With Tute! ** (picture heavy) on: March 10, 2010 05:26:22 PM
I use a recipe that's quite similar, but it's a powder instead of a liquid. A liquid would be too messy for me since I go to the laundromat. A friend taught me that one and I've been using it for a least 6 months with great success.

The recipe is just mixing equal amount of finely grated soap, borax and washing soda. I usually just grate a soap bar, check the amount with a small measuring cup and add the two other ingredients. You can mix everything with a food processor if your soap flakes are too but, but I usually just mix by hand. I use two tablespoons of this mix in the big laundromat machines, so a tablespoon would probably be enough for a normal machine.

I don't know about those two in particular, but they're very expensive. You can get great hosting for 5$-10$ a month. Check out www.webhostingtalk.com for reviews.
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Selling Craft Patterns as a PDF file on: July 11, 2007 08:27:18 AM
Yes, when I buy digital download, they are usually send to my ISP address which I used for my paypal account since it's more reliave. But forget the PDF attachment there, I have tiny 2Mo mailbox and everything will bounce. Downloads are great.

Also, it's probably too expensive for you now, but if you get an high volume of sales the DLGuard script is great, I used it when I sold ebooks. You install it on a website and it will automate all that email sending as soon as the paypal payment is received, and will protect your files.

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: What's a good amount of bandwidth? on: July 02, 2007 05:33:56 PM
It would also be interesting to investigate why you went over the limit. One of my hosting client did the exact same thing last week, went over the 2GB limit and we had to raise it to 5GB. It was after a popular site picked up her free (French) pattern, so it was nice to know when it happened.

If you're like her, it may be a rare thing, and it probably doesn't justify going to a 15gb hosting. You need a little breathing space that's for sure, but I doubt it justifies going that high.

Also, I believe that already having something like that around is a good sign. It meant somebody tried and it worked, so there is space for another one that's for sure.

Narrowing it down to a specific field is probably a good idea. Also, you can have different pack categories later on if you want to expand.
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: June 20, 2007 12:19:07 PM
So I've started using my blog more to promote my etsy store, and also to update it so I can keep track of my projects and share my knitting-goodness on the internet.  I was looking at it the other day and it seems...well...clunky.  A little too cluttered.  Not cohesive enough.  I was thinking about switching back over to blogspot and totally overhauling my blog to be "lucindacknits.blogspot.com" and having my banner up top.  But I'm not sure what to do, since that would require me to re-code everything and rejoin blogrings I'm already a part of.  Opinions?

Since you're planning to move anyway, you could use Wordpress and host it yourself. Hosting is so cheap, and you could use your own domain name that would never change again. And Wordpress is a lot more flexible with all plugins out there, and you have more control on your data.
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: List of Crafty Business Books on: June 14, 2007 12:08:17 PM
I've read the Barbara Brabec books, they're good.

Also, if you're willing to branch out a little, Seth Godin writes great marketing books that could easily be applied to a craft business. Your library should at least have a copy of Purple Cow.
