This cake uses no oil or margarine which makes it healthier and plus it's very easy to make especially if you keep some chopped apples in the freezer.
Low-Calorie Spinach Dip
This is a low calorie and low cost spinach dip that can be eaten as a snack or appetizer. I like it because you can change it up a little and have a different style snack or swap a couple of ingredients and give it a whole new taste.
Pinenut Encrusted Green Beans
This wonderful aromatic dish is easy to prepare and a nice change from your family's normal vegetable routine. Perfect for holiday dinners as well.
Bathtub Cleaning Made Easy
Use liquid toilet bowl cleaner in your bathtub or shower to remove hard water stains, minerals, mildew, and soap residue. It's stronger than bathtub cleaners and does the job in no time.
The Best Present Is To Be Present
I live in Senior Housing/low income housing. I do not have a car nor do a lot of the people that live here. Although we have a marvelous Council On Aging that has a bus for different trips there are still places that we are unable to go.
Use Bottle Caps As Checkers
You can make your own checker board and use the red and black coke caps. They also make great replacements. When it it is faced down with open side up, it is not a king. To become a king, flip it over with the solid side on top.
Vinegar For Tea Stains
When a stain like this occurs, I rely on a sure fix. Apply full-strength vinegar to the stain over a sink. I use white vinegar. Then pour very hot or boiling water over the stained area. One may need to repeat the process.
Use A Chair With A Missing Seat For A Planter
I have found that the kind of chairs with the seat missing are ideal for this. They are usually found that way in bentwood chairs because the seat is round. I just bought two at an auction for $2 and gave one to my daughter-in- law.
Add More Water To Brown Rice
I use my rice cooker for brown rice all the time. I get a 10 pound bag of organic short grain from Costco. I have found that it is better if I add 1/2 a cup more than what the rice cooker instruction book says for "brown" rice.
Push Dog Through Dog Door At First
We taught ours by simply pushing them through it. They got the idea quickly and were happy with it. When other dogs came into our household, they got the idea from watching our dogs do it.
Sign Up for Local Freecycle
I sign up for the freecycle yahoo posting in our area. I received some really nice furniture this way. Also in Florida, what people don't want they put on the curb, and you are free to take it. We look at the piece to see if it is good or worth redoing.
Use Chrome Mirrored Trays For Bathroom Bottles
I still use one of the old chrome and metal mirrored bottom trays with chrome pipe sides. They are easy to clean and all the bottles, tubes and such are contained in a small area.
Tips For Removing Mascara
You could try buying the same brands of mascara and eye makeup remover. Ponds Cold Cream is what removes theatrical makeup. Apply that to lashes and rub off with facial tissue.

The most important thing to remember about sewing a great fitting and looking pair of pants is to take your measurements properly (and honestly:) and read the pattern size to make sure you have the right pattern for your measurements.

I'm making magnets to hold a child's drawings, homework, etc. I would like to personalize each one with their name with a whimsical form of writing. Any ideas, tips, etc.?
Dye Transferred in Wash Cream Coat is Now Pink
I've managed to dye my new cream coat, pink, in the washer. How do I get it back to cream? Will bleaching it turn it white?
Apollo (American Lattle Mix)
Apollo is a 7 month old American Lattle mix. He is from the pairing of our Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie and the neighboring farm's Lab/Malamute. He loves to visit the farm and play with mom, dad and brothers.
Making a Tied Trellis Yarn Necklace
I bought a trellis ribbon necklace at a craft fair that was not crocheted. It had many strands that just laid flat and the back seemed to have been secured with wrapped thread. All the patterns I can find are crocheted. Any idea how this was made?

I want to recycle last years Christmas cards to send out this year as Christmas postcards. Just one question: the fronts of all my cards have an embossed image of a tree, a package, a star, etc.
