This page contains applesauce salad recipes. Applesauce can be incorporated into jello and other foods for an interesting sweet salad.
I love cilantro but if you don't, then simply substitute with Italian parsley or celery leaves.
I am looking for a cross stitch pattern for the Gamecocks from South Carolina University.
I like using sesame bagels with this flavor combination the best but plain bagels are good too. The amount of cucumber and radishes you use for this recipe will depend on how much each person likes to load their bagels ;-)
This page contains pizza dip recipes. A popular way to enjoy pizza is the addition of a tasty dip.
Do I need to amend or change out all the soil from my containers each season?
The plastic bags that cold cereals are packaged in can be cut into large squares and sewn between two pieces of cotton fabric. When finished, these are called "crinkle taggies".
I am starting to sell things on Ebay. I recently read an article that suggested reusing what we already have. From here on, my packaging material will include at least one of the bags from the cereal box.
I've decoupaged a lot of things over the years: blank premade cardboard boxes of different shapes, stools, shelves, trays, plastic eggs, a clear glass plate, and trivet.
I so miss receiving thank you notes. Here are some tips to write a short thank you note for a gift, meal, or a unexpected service done:
At the first hint of queasiness or stomach pain, I take one-half dropper of Trace Minerals from BEST Process AlkaLine. I put it in a little juice or water and drink it. It is unpleasant, but not nearly as bad as vomiting.
I have my alarm clock set all the way on the other side of the room. I have to get up and turn it off. It sure does make it more difficult to hit the snooze button when you have to walk back and forth from your bed!
I hate any kind of bugs or spiders, even ants. The solution I found was so easy, cheap and works. Cajun pepper sprinkled around doors and next to the wall gets rid of any problem without poison or finding a dead mouse in those traps.
Comforting, easy to make and tastes great. Melts in your mouth!
I have been making this for over a year now and they are just as good as the name brand wipes. I read that they would "spoil" if you made the wipes up ahead, but I have had a container in the truck for over 6 months and they have yet to spoil even in the summer time.
I use a lint roller to clean my lampshades. The roller is also great for cleaning carpeted stairs in between regular vaccuming.
Every time I cleaned my tub, I was using a scrub brush but it was slipping out of my hand. Gripping it was a pain and getting into crevices wasn't that easy. I started to notice I had quite a few of those scrubby/loofah bath gloves.
I think something you should keep in mind is the fact that just because foods are cheap (such as prepared foods) it doesn't mean they're going to be healthy.
If you can get to a library, check out the SugarBusters! weight loss book. It helped me to better understand what we should eat and why. Oats, beans, lentils, veggies and fruit (bought on sale) can help you stay healthy and lose weight.
My Mother and I both love morning glories. I sprouted one that I cut from outside in water and then replanted it where I wanted it to grow.
