White? My only problem with just painting it is the rounded edges, they are what is dated. And if you mess up the distressing it can come out really bad... I would have to say white. Good luck

This is funny. My mom just decided that she wanted to start knitting?
I made a cute little crochet hat for a friends baby and I think she thought "hey that looks fun". So she explained that she wanted to learn and I needed to teach?
I taught myself from reading books how to knit, crochet, and sew. I have no idea how these things are taught other than that. I think that my great grama used to embroider, but I think that was a thing that everyone did, not considered a craft back then?
So I got my mother a book and needles and some cheap yarn and told her to go for it? OOOOPPPSSS.
Yah she wasn't so impressed. So I sat with her as she went through the book and if she had questions I answered them. In the end she has decided it is too difficult to learn and she has given up?Huh   
I think that I have gotten to be crafty cause it's fun, not because it was an inherited trait...
44  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: It's Pancake Day! Anyone got interesting recipes? on: May 23, 2007 08:04:32 PM
A friend of mine makes these outragously good apple pancakes.... The liquid in the batter is substitued with Hard Apple Cider. The yeast in it makes them rise...

Lemon curd is really easy to make......
Pineapple sounds way too good though.
I wonder if you did a bunch of fruit layers if it would turn out?

47  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Favorite Cupcake & Frosting Recipes (all kinds) on: May 23, 2007 07:56:10 PM
I just made Cupcakes for an event and they turned out well...
You can use the recipe on Epicurious.com for white cupcakes, then add stuff.

I made Mojito cupcakes, Lime, mint and rum.... Double cooking the rum.
Cosmo's, sweetend dried cranberries, vodka and vanilla.
Margarita, lemon, lime and tequila...

Then I made a basic buttercream and added flavorings.

Good Luck

Joy of Cooking
New York Times Cookbook(any year)
Anything By James Beard(the famous guy with the award thing)
I like the Frugal Gourmet?
There is a book it might be the betty crocker book? Picnic table pattern on the cover....

And Julia Childs.. She does advanced stuff but some is really easy.

Or go to the library and look at the cooking section. If any of it inspires you for more than a day go out and buy the book...
If I would have done that years ago I would have a lot less books that I don't use.....
49  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Hot Tea with Fruit in it? HELP!! on: May 23, 2007 07:39:49 PM
I am guessing that you had a fruit tea? It has very small amounts of tea leaves. And large amounts of dried fruits that are cut up very small.

You could add fruit juice to the a regular tea that you have steeped for a short amount of time?(a minute)
You could try white tea leaves?
You can try putting the oil from the rind into the tea?

You should get a sampler pack of fruit teas, then try a bunch of options.

I love trying a white tea leaf with a little orange oil....

Orange oil really easy to make. Take an orange and shave a peice of the peel off. Take that bit of peel and twist it while it is in the mug. You'll see the oil coming out of the peel. If you want drop the peel into the mug as well. There you go....

Good luck
