What lucky kids!
FYI, 180 is a bit low unless measuring in metric. 255F would be close. Now if I can just figure out which "glass" to use for the sugar. This sounds so tasty, I want to try it.
A co-worker of my husband used to steal his favorit flavor of the donuts that HE bought for himself. He injected one with Ora Gel, and the thief thought he was having a heart attack. Hubby had to come clean before 911 was called.
Guess again--there is NO WAY it will let me see a video.
every time I try to watch a You Tube video, it wants me to LOG IN. Is this some dirty trick by youtube to force everybody to register?
---anything but send it to the landfill, of course.
Lately, I just use el cheapo baking spray. It makes a foamy, moussey fluff that spreads easily and clings to the label--even on a vertical surface. Left on for 30 minutes to an hour, it loosens the adhesive quite well.
the kitty was freaked out with the paper stuck to him, and a bit sore from losing clumps of hair. Licking the buttery tasting goodness off himself calmed him down quite a bit. He was purring by the time he was all cleaned off.
Great reuse for cardboard, since the local refuse services refuse to accept it.
It sells for nearly $500. We need an instructible for a nice knockoff.
Interesting to make a pretty necklace for an Easter conversation starter.
So not a crucifix, but thought-provoking., just the same.
Great idea! I hate it when everything drifts to the bottom of my purse.
I have done this, but I opened the outside seam to make it easier to sew on the machine. Only the crotch seam is flatlocked, so the outside seam is easy to re-sew, and a zigzag over the seam allowance prevents raveling. I was 15, and my dad paid me a buck a pair to fix his fence mending Levi's. Barb wire tears up denim something fierce.
My dad's home-made stitching pony was built onto the end of a sawhorse, so his weight anchored the work. He made chaps, so he needed to be seated.
Placing a zipper on the edge gives a nice, clean look, but I realize how difficult that can be. You usually see a zipper mounted in a gusset, which is easier, and less stress on the coil. Kudos for a gutsy installation. I would have gone the easy route.
I can see something like this done on a picnic table. Cool!
I might try this, but with bakers parchment paper, which seems to be similar, and more common (and cheaper) in the US.
I have always wondered if heat shrink tubing could be used to make aglets. Awesome!
Hubby and I used this product to make a custom mirror for my brother-in-law, but BY HAND! We used ConTact paper to cut a frisket of a motorcycle he helped design. The mirror turned out amazing!
Nice lid cover, but I wish to re-create the lid itself--with threads.
I use Mason jars for almost EVERYTHING! Imagine my delight to find a carton of half pint WIDE mouth, straight sided jars! I really like straight sided jars for freezing and baking. And they are easy to clean.
i only remove the outside membrane to give the outside of the root a good grip.
The vials that once contained glucose test strips are also useful, but not for contact with consumables, due to the special lining of the vials. Flip caps never get lost.
This worked very well for valentines for my kids one year I cut out hearts, punched the holes, and turned the boys loose with colored Sharpies. After baking, we laced yarn through, and put them in folded paper envelopes. Their classmates got hand decorated necklaces from my artistic sons.
I often wonder why bread is so good when made with potato, but it is always good. My mother made sticky buns with butter and brown sugar on the bottom--ideally with lots of pecans. Pure Heaven!
Hubby would like this--he hates guac.
I have several 1/2 cup mason jelly jars. I may try this with them, as the jars are safe for canning, just not as cute as the flip top jars. Ought to turn out onto the plate quite easily.
Very cute, but my mother taught me how to REALLY sew when I was 8. Your daughter is almost ready for a real machine. Use the toy machine to teach her safe operation, and then shop for a good first machine.
My son grossified a brand new bike so well, it looked like it had been dragged out of the lake. Just permanent markers, but very convincing. The bike was bought to replace one that had been stolen from campus.
This reminds me of the bullet hole shot glasses and decanters produced by Mock King Bird Pottery in the wilderness of west central Wyoming.
This reminds me of the bullet hole shot glasses and decanters produced by Monk King Bird Pottery in the wilderness of west central Wyoming.
Butter works quite well. I know this because we had a cat that pulled down a fly paper strip, which tangled with his coat and was pulling out clumps of fur. I rubbed butter into the mess, which neutralized the adhesive. We toweled him off, leaving only a little butter, which he was content to remove himself.
This is totally awesome! Just the thing to wear at MakeFaire in 100+ degree heat.
I really like the idea of squishing out all the goodness with a French press.
Love Danny! He gives me chills.
We had a microwave spark like crazy and then quit working--FOREVER. Curious, we tore it apart and found a dead mouse trapped in the door latch.
The only good mouse is . . . Working in a laboratory.
Snipe hunting is SO last century! Do what all the cool kids do and po ke mon go.
the truth is that snipes are ugly, dirty, and have little or no usable flesh. Not worth the ammo.
Beef good. I approve.
Science of Baking
Onions have alternating fleshy layers and transparent membranes. Even though the membrane is very thin, it contributes to the onion-y flavor. Use it.
I used dental floss to hem a pair of slacks. Now I know where to keep my needle.
Wait until you do this in a WAFFLE IRON!
Styrofoam insulation.panels are sold at home stores, we used that, but corrugated cardboard made the wood stove glow bright red. Almost as scary as burning old tires!
We buy styrofoam insulation at the lumber yard. There is no corrugated cardboard insulation vecause it is extremely flammable. We had a wood stove, and burning some things made the thing GLOW. Corrugated cardboard burns VERY HOT and the stove would turn red and the cobwebs near the ceiling would catch fire.
Note, pkease do not use this for contraband. LOL
Easier yet--take a piece of paper, and fold it around a teaspoon of salt. I like to fold opposite sides into thirds over the salt, because after the second pair of sides are folded in, one end can be tucked into the other, closing the packet. Then when I need a pinch, I can open the paper and pinch away, saving the rest for later. The best part is, this is so tiny and thin, it can go anywhere. You can use gourmet seasonings any place you like
About 20 years ago, I converted a kid's soft side lunch box into a camera bag. Not only did it look nothing like a camera case, but I only needed to add a partition, as the insulation was enoigh padding outside.
Pockets! They make me happy. Warm hands, a place for my keys, and keeping my phone handy. What deviant decides to make any pants without pockets in the first place?
I believe that an item is worth nothing to you unless it gives you joy. If you choose to alter an old thing to create a beautiful piece that touches your heart, that might be preferable to leaving it in a sorry state just in case you can sell it. A collector does not own a piece if it is in YOUR possession. I choose not to give these snobs power over MY property.
3d printing filament or weedeater line. The tips can be melted round with a lighter.
This looks like the ideal way to treat the imported junk that you find at garage sales, or an el cheapo gift that cannot be returned.
Now I know what to do with that stupid shirt that was labeled the wrong size.
A nice looking project. Wood screws could be used to attach the bottom instead of brad nails for structural strength. Pre-drill to avoid splitting.
White Formica, not glued to anything, aluminum foil, any mirror--even acrylic, will work like white board. I used the front of the fridge, but had to use a white Mr. Clean sponge to get it off.
Ooh! These would be awesome with my brother's home made remoulade.
I like to heat the milk and butter in the microwave, and mix in the powder before adding to the pasta. I also add a nice, big glop of sour cream with the other additions.
Rice krispies treats?
Unless you make cream cheese icing, just eat them naked.
I prefer transparent containers. Peanut butter jars, nut or popcorn jars from Target, animal cracker jars from Sam's Club, and various sizes of Mason jars. I only buy the latter when they are reduced price. Masons can be microwaved, and are great for leftovers.
We have done the same thing--love the effect. Safety note: the shiny side is very slippery when wet, so flip the stepping stones over.
I read about a lady who made booby flasks to cheer up her sister, who had breast cancer. She and her hubby could tipple at the game, which was quite cheerful for both.
your little helper is so cute!
Some people call them "gauges".
these look so wedding-y.
I don't mind lending a coin at Aldi. The prices are awesome, and their gluten-free selection is incredible.
Why are Michael's balls so expensive? One can only guess . . .
If those cases were about an inch longer, you could put an insulin pen inside, plus swabs and pen needles. Rats!
I make ganache in my coffee cup--just enough to super-charge my coffee. I put a single layer of 60% dark chips in the bottom of my mug and pour heavy whipping cream to just about cover the chips. I then nuke it until it is steamy and stir like a maniac. Yum. Sometimes, I just skip the coffee.
My tongue says bacon. There's always room for bacon.
Save those yolks for some awesome egg noodles! Otherwise, you can feed them to your cat--they love egg yolk; and it is good for them.
Woodpeckers are carnivores. They drill through wood to get the insects inside. Baby birds would be a bigger meal for way less work.
Since beans do not cook properly if they are too old, these outdated beans will work quite well.
This method works wonderfully! I have done it to a few pants, but when I added pockets to a pair with FAKE front pockets, it was a DISASTER. Women's clothes designers SUCK! I need a vest with pockets, to wear with all my pocketless trousers.
You are such a meanie. Kitties need a nice, clean place to stretch out and snooze., and dogs can't bother them on the roof. The sooner little scratches appear, the sooner we don't go nutzo over every little ding--or summer hail storm. Life is nicer when you let it be.
Bird doo and tree sap can happen to anybody's laundry, but we lived on the route for SAC refueling practice. Jet fuel and refueling lube are nasty!
Yum. All it needs is a drizzle of heavy whipping cream, unsweetened.
MDF is OK as long as it is covered up, (unattractive) kept absolutely dry, and is not expected to withstand angular or concentrated force. Think blocks of sawdust and school glue. Know its limitations, and you can avoid disaster.
Such a beautiful "helper"!
Awesome idea to use dishwasher detergent to bleach! Using the copy machine is interesting, though expensive. We have always used the photo emulsion method to fill our screens.
We have a beautiful cat who likes to play with whatever small creatures she can catch. She plays with them until they are "broken". Nature is good.
So creative, so weird, so amazing!o
Since the nylon net is so wide, I would serge it into a tube, offsetting the corners by the width to be cut. Then I could cut the "yarn" all in one continuous strip.
These would make the cutest earmuffs!
We have a beautiful half Siamese cat who does what is in her nature. When she catches a tiny playmate, we let her outside Since she is well-fed, we do not know if any of the filthy little parasites survive her playtime, but she chooses if they may live. In any case, they are outside, away from our pantry.
This looks so COOL, I want to make a mold and force the pumpkin to grow into it.
They also have beef stock paste. Makes great gravy and punches up my meatloaf. I use some in my stroganoff, too.
As kids, my brother and I took turns cranking the churn, a gallon Mason jar with wooden paddles and a crank. Our mom later used her Mixmaster to make butter. Cream from the Brown Swiss cow made the prettiest golden butter. She was also the gentlest, most beautiful cow.
I LOVE it! Just too cute!
I love these made with shredded Parmegiano-Reggiano.
I found a recipe for sous vide dulce de leche that uses 1 cup jelly jars with canning lids.
Aw, this is so adorable!
so is this possible with sous vide?
It also grows in Ukraine, where it is called "kalina", and is an element in folk medicine--and is considered a "tonic".
Peanut butter and mayonnaise are packed in various size jars; which can be clea ed and are perfect for snacks or leftovers. The larger opening makes filling/cleaning a breeze.
I like to brown a couple pounds of ground beef, drain, and repack in zipper bags. A quarter cup added to a serving of vegetables turns it into a main dish.
My eyes BURN so painfully when cutting onions that I keep a pair of swim goggles in the kitchen--just for cutting onions. NO MORE TEARS !
