Clay Roaster Recipes
I would love some good recipes to use with a clay roaster.
Gas Heat Leaving Yellow Stains on Walls
How do I remove yellow stains on walls from gas heat?
Tint Hard Boiled Eggs
To keep track of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge, add a few drops of food coloring to the boiling water. My family knows that the tinted eggs are ready for eating.
Use Layaway For Large Purchases
How about we go back to the good old-fashioned idea of LAYAWAY! It worked well when I was a kid, and I see more and more stores are offering it. I know there have always been people who have used this very clever way of getting what they want.
Sippy Cups for Sick Children
When a child gets sick and needs to sip liquids slowly, there is nothing better for this than a sippy cup. They can't wolf down the drink so it is better and gentler for their tummies. Also some of them are non-spill too.
Grouping Silverware in the Dishwasher
I have recently realized how to make fast work of putting away my silverware from the dishwasher basket when the dishes are done. That seems to be the most laborious part of the chore.
Protect Sun Visor with Shower Cap
When you stay at some motels they will give you a complimentary shower cap. After your stay, put that cap over the sun visor in your car so you don't get it dirty or finger stained over time.
Use Hot Water Bottle in Baby Bath
The next time you give baby a tub bath, partially fill a hot water bottle with lukewarm water and place it in the bottom of the tub for him to sit on. Baby will enjoy the event in greater safety and comfort.
Cover Barcodes When Reusing Envelopes
While I know that a lot of us use those return envelopes we get in our junk mail and simply place a white label over the printed address, I have been advised by my friend at the post office here to ALSO make sure that any and all barcodes be completely covered by a white label.
Making Furniture for an American Girl Doll
I have an American girl doll, but the furniture is too expensive. Any ideas on how to make some?
Making a Stuffed Bear Holding Wooden Blocks
I was recently at a bazaar and someone had a stuffed bear with blocks spelling out the child's name. There was a dowel rod put through the bear's arms and the blocks between the arms with some kind of cap on the ends of the dowel rod.
Crispy Reheated Pizza
We love pizza and usually buy the large one for just the two of us. Of coarse, we always have enough left for another meal or snack. To reheat and keep the crust crispy just heat in a non stick skillet and med-low till warm. The crust will remain crispy.
Smash Nuts for Baking
An easy way I discovered to crush the nuts is to place them on a large sheet of wax paper, fold the wax paper over the top of the nuts and use a rolling pin to crush the nuts, pushing down and rolling.
Rinse and Reuse Coffee Filters
I use the natural brown unbleached coffee filters for my electric coffee pot and the non-electric one cup cone coffee maker over and over again. These can be carefully rinsed and air-dried to reuse and still work like new.
Link: ASPCA Pet Medication Alert
Thought I should share this ASPCA ALERT regarding purchasing pet medications online! When you open the link be sure you're at item #2 for "Pet Health Alert: FDA Issues Warning on Buying Pet Drugs Online"
Lily (American Cocker Spaniel)
Lily is an 18 month old American Cocker Spaniel. I saw puppies advertised on a community bulletin board. I went to see them and fell in love with her.
Cuddles (Basset Hound)
Cuddles will be 12 this coming December 21st. She is a pure breed lovable, bossy Basset Hound. My child had always wanted one of this type of dog. So as a February 14th surprise we drove about fifty miles down to MS.
Seal Plastic Bag to Make Air Tight
Cut up a disposable water bottle and keep the neck and top, as in photo. Insert the plastic bag through the neck and screw on the top to seal.
Dog is Marking Furniture
I have a male dog who is 6 years old. He has been fixed for years and I thought that would stop him from marking on the corners of my furniture. He still has not stopped.
Tucker (Golden Doodle)
Tucker is a year and half old Golden Doodle. Tucker is a fun loving dog with the typical hyper Goldendoodle attitude.
Waldorf Pasta Salad
This is a great dish for a pot-luck. If making for a Christmas pot-luck, use tri-colored pasta and add dried cranberries to make the dish look festive. Use a combination of green and red apples too.
Jiffy Beannie Weenie Casserole
Make in a jiffy and it is cheap and yummy. Empty the cans of baked beans in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Slice the hot dogs and stir with the baked beans.
Removing Scuffs From Inside Dryer
How do I get scuff marks out of my dryer?
Permanent Marker on Wallpaper
What is good to clean permanent marker from wall paper? The Magic Eraser removes the ink from the wall paper.
Scenery: Silhouette on Lake
The sun was almost set behind our lake making the trees look like a silhouette. The reflection in the water became a silhouette too. We love sitting outside watching the sun set behind the lake.
Wildlife: Prince Charming?
After the flooding the east coast had with Nicole, this frog jumped onto my front porch and allowed us to pick him up and photograph him. He was so calm, and I could only wonder if hidden somewhere behind those eyes was my Prince Charming.
Perspiration Stains on White Clothing
I'm a nurse and I wear a white uniform. I have a problem with under arm perspiration. My uniform looks bad because of under arm stains. Please help.
Scenery: Sunset (Maine)
This is a beautiful sunset over the trees for everyone to see. It had rained all day and everything was wet. Then to make up for having to stay in the house all day, God gave us a beautiful sunset. Oh Lord, Please give me another sunset out here like that one.
My Frugal Life: The Thriftiness of Grandparents
Like so many of you, I remember my grandparents' thriftiness. They made it through the Depression, but its impact never left them. They made the most of every penny. Even when a lifetime of hard work made got them to a place of being financially "secure."
Using Copper to Kill Mold
How does copper help in killing mold?
Saving Land That is Being Washed Away
My land is being washed away in the creek bed. It is dry in the summer. I'm looking for ways to stop this, but I don't have a lot of money. I want to save my land without getting in the way of the creek.
Decorating a Pocket Calendar
How can I decorate or personalize a pocket calender?
Removing Streaks On Hardwood Floors
I cleaned my hardwood floors with Orange Glo. Now I need to remove the residue and streaks. Does Windex really work? If so, how do I apply it?
Elliptical is Squeaking
I have an elliptical that is starting to squeak like crazy whenever I'm on it. Normally I would spray some WD40 on it but I'm all out. So I figured there's got to be something else around the house I can use. Any suggestions?
Propagating Lilies From Scales
Building up a large collection of lilies in your flower garden can be an expensive and time consuming proposition-unless of course, you're willing to propagate them yourself.
Use Halloween theme papers to create a fun card, tag, and wrapped sweets. Make a 4 x 5 inch card and 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch tag from purple cardstock. Trim the edges with decorative-edge scissors.
Breaded Parmesan Chicken
I like this served over lightly lemon juice seasoned egg noodles or rice and sprinkled with a bit more Parmesan.
Spider Dip Bowl
Great for kids or adult parties! Form one loaf into a round ball for body. Place on a large cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Costume: Funny Nose
My mother has Alzheimers, but she is such a good sport. My father passed away in 2008. She grieves anew for him every day, like it is the first time. But she also has such a good sense of humor.
