    Live Edge Oak Coffee Table

    I love live edge wood and have plans for it at our house this year. Our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore has partnered with Urban Lumber and now sells slabs of live edge wood harvested from urban areas. They rescue the wood from storm damaged trees, trees removed for other reasons, and keep them out of landfills. I have a piece of walnut that will become a new window sill on each side of my living room window. Indoors it will hold plants and a few trinkets. Outside, on the covered porch, will be the larger slice with brackets for more support. It will serve as a table top. It suits our rustic (rural) home. If this works well I might do the same for my kitchen window and have room for a herb garden this winter. (They also carry live edge slices in several sizes for plaques and other sm...

My daughter made a Lazy Susan for condiments for the dinner table).

    Full English Breakfast

    The hash browns pictured on the plate are the frozen hockey pucks sold commercially. True American hash browns are home made of diced potato or coarsely shredded potato fried in bacon drippings. I would assume the HP brown sauce would be the equivalent of A1 steak sauce sold here in the States Personally, I would omit the Black Pudding (Blood Sausage ) and go for a ham or beef steak instead, but that's just me.I do agree that breakfast should be available at any time of day.

    How to Make Crepes

    You can also place a warm, fresh off the pan crepe on the back of a muffin tin and as it cools it will gently hold a cupped shape. Then fill with your choice of filling. I've used pudding, custard and pie fillings in individual crepe cups. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles for an impressive fancy dessert. Any crepes left overs can be cut into strips and used as noodles in soup. (Especially the savory crepes.) Savory crepe cups make tasty holders for a meat filling, such as stew or thick soups. Think of crepe cups as a variation of a bread bowl or an open pot pie.

  • Finger-Licking Brussels (for People Who Hate Brussels)

    I've fried up some bacon, then sautéed the sprouts with the drippings and butter, added French fried onions to the sprouts and served with a white creamed sauce topped with crumbled bacon bits.

  • 5 Things You Can Make From Leftover Silicone

    If table & chair legs are dipped in the leftover silicone, would they stop leaving marks on light colored bamboo flooring? Will silicone stick to ceramic tableware that is rough on the bottom and scratches glass top tables? I though of gluing on felt, but then washing those pieces would soon destroy the felt.
