I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

  • How to Plant Water Saver RTF Grass Seed

    Thanks for letting us know. Hopefully it did not damage the baby grass. Enjoy your new lawn~ sunshiine~

    Hello, I have not seen anything like this before. I would suggest contacting the company and send them these pictures explaining what you are experiencing. There are so many different factors in determining what might cause this in my opinion. I am sure the company will assist you. I had great success calling and asking to speak to someone in the company who has a lot of knowledge about their water saver grass. They may offer to send you replacement seed depending on what is causing this. I wish you the best and thanks for stopping by. https://www.barusa.com/consumer-products/water-saversunshiine~

    Hey Caitlin27, That is a very good question and thanks for asking. The mixture and balloons should be made shortly before serving. The balloons should be filled with air and served immediately. I would suggest making these until you get the hang of it before . . . . any special event. I had to make several batches because I did not have a fool proof recipe and had to make adjustments over a couple of days with about the same weather conditions, with that said, different weather conditions. may make a difference in how long the balloons will stay inflated but I am not sure. I do not recommend making these in advance because the balloons do begin to dry out which could cause them to shatter even though they look fine.

They seemed to hold up and were pliable for two to three hours after filling them, but they are kind of delicate. I will make these again because they were so much fun, however, I will say . . . I have only made these one time over a couple of days. Unfortunately, I have not had company to serve them to, so I have not made them again. I hope this information helps you. There was one person who made these and loved the experience and did not have any trouble with the information I shared here. Thanks again and do have a splendorous summer~ sunshiine~

    How to Remove Grease Splatter and Gunk

    I often use straight vinegar and let it soak for a while. Baked on grease is hard especially on baking dishes and pans. You might give Dr Bronners a try, I used it straight on the refrigerator a while back that had some type of residue left from a message board I had stuck to the fridge. I tried a lot of things and the Dr Bronners liquid soap did a great job. If I think of something else I will leave a comment~ Have a safe and happy spring~sunshiine~

    How to Remove Grease Splatter and Gunk

    Hi Bonkelray, You might try white vinegar. I use it for my pots and pans when there is baked on food and give them time to soak. If plain vinegar won't cut it add some dish soap to the mixture and try it again. A tooth brush or non scratch pad might be useful. If all else fails I might be tempted to use oven cleaner depending on the type of surface. Hope this helps~sunshiine~

  • Cultivate Wild Yeast to Make Almond Flour Sourdough Biscuits From Scratch

    Thank-you! Oh how I wished I had paid more attention in science class! I was very tempted to bake a loaf rather than biscuits and spray the oven but decided to avoid making too many changes in the early stages of development. I am fairly sure a person could achieve good results baking a larger batch and spraying the oven, although extra egg whites might be needed. I was tempted to add a little water to the mixture in my last batch but decided not to. If you look at the tops of the first batches I made, you will notice the tops are smoother although the rise was not sufficient. That is why I decided to use a large muffin tin, thinking that the pan would provide walls to support a higher rise and add egg whites to increase the rise. The tops of the first batch were smoother because I roll...

That is why I decided to use a large muffin tin, thinking that the pan would provide walls to support a higher rise and add egg whites to increase the rise. The tops of the first batch were smoother because I rolled them out. I noticed the muffin tin biscuits had a texture on top and I had to decide if I should add water to the batter or an extra egg white to make a thinner batter that would form a smoother top but decided the uneven top might brown beautifully. I was happy with the decision. I will be giving these methods a try and hopefully share them on instructables. Thank you for your comment audreyobscura and do have a safe and happy 2019~sunshiine~

  • Cultivate Wild Yeast to Make Almond Flour Sourdough Biscuits From Scratch

    Hi Sue,I was surprised how much research was required to develop a recipe with (yes) ingredients. Not to mention understanding how imitation flours like almond flour will react to wild yeast. I appreciate your suggestions for alternative flours I might try. I will probably have to order the ones you suggested because stores here have a limited variety to choose from.This journey has been a very challenging one! Thank you so much for the comment, it made my day~sunshiine~

    The brain octane oil is processed differently than the organic coconut oil; which makes it taste better.Perhaps they use the same process (idea) as the coffee to remove or reduce toxins?. The grass fed cows butter has more nutrients and the chlorophyll makes the butter very yellow, I am guessing the butter has a lot more natural vitamin D.The organic butter sold in America is nothing compared to what I tasted as a child. The butter I remember had way more flavor and of course- a brighter yellow color, even more than the red feather brand. Maybe I was tasting raw butter, I don't know. This coffee is pretty amazing.I have never liked coffee and after tasting this coffee I actually liked the flavor.

We ran into 4 people around town at different times and places; who have mentioned they go to one of the doctors at our clinic because of serious health issues and are doing much better now because of the keto diet and drinking this coffee. Their stories were amazing. From what I understand the MCT oil has different benefits than the brain Octane oil but haven't figured out why it does (yet). I am thrilled my husband is feeling and looking better and has a whole lot more energy. Thanks for stopping by Jessy! Oh yeah, try the butter it taste soooooooooo good~Sunshiine~

    Your art work caught my attention because my adult daughter has an exotic bird refuge and she provides a home for birds who have been abused or neglected. Your picture reminded me of her purpose. I shared your instructable with her. Her refuge is cage free. I wish you the very best with your art work! Keep up the beautiful work~sunshiine~

    Thanks for the compliment~ although challenging I had great fun trying to figure out how to make it work~ Apparently one chef spent 5 years trying to figure out how Alinea did it. He makes and sells them locally in Canada if I recall. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek AzureOzma and for commenting! Have a safe and happy spring~sunshiine~

    jtiii, All I can say is the balloons sure cheered him up a bit being so sick with the flu~ I got it after he did and whew it was bad!Mike Begale's decision to make Green apple helium balloons was a great choice! Although I did not juice my own, the tart and sweet together was a nice balance. We had a great time testing the balloons. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at the helium balloons and taking the time to post a comment~ I really like the looks of your screen name! Hope your day shines~sunshiine~

    The video shows customers biting into the balloon and sucking in the air and yes it changes their voice OR the string has a sharp tool to poke the balloon and then eat it after it has deflated. Thanks for commenting and do have a nice week~ sunshiine~
