Christmas Rocks (Cookies)
I don't know how they got this name; these cookies are tender and delicious, not at all like rocks. My mother made them every Christmas, and they were a real favorite.
Na'an Bread Recipe
I love making flat breads like pita, tortillas, and na'an. This is my favorite recipe for na'an. It is soft and tender, very easy and the accompanying filling is really delicious.
I just got done making suet for the wild birds. It is cheap enough to buy, but gets even cheaper if you make your own. The following is my recipe.

When I need something I ask my friends to "ask around" for me. Most of the time someone has the item and they simply want to get it "out of the way".
Simple Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
The nice thing about making such a large amount at a time is that you can place leftover, individual scoops of the potatoes on a baking sheet, allow to freeze and then place in freezer bags.
Freezing Bell Peppers
I do not know how to dry bell peppers, but I will tell you what I do. If I purchased more than I need at the time I just cut them up (red, yellow, and green), cut up an onion, and fry them with a little olive oil.
Living in fabulous "Bay of Plenty" in New Zealand, we get heaps of cheap avocado. I mash them with sweet chilli sauce and lime juice, and either eat them or freeze them. Scrummy!
Canning Apples in a Warm Water Bath
I had always been a city girl who bought her beans and tomatoes at the grocery store. They came in cans and I had no idea how they got there. One day I made a discovery and saw beans and tomatoes and lots of other things grow right out in a field.

Brown Bag Wallpaper
I live in an old home and many times the plastered walls have cracks in them. Here is an alternative if the cracks keep showing up soon after you paint. I "papered" my walls in brown paper and rosin paper that have been painted.

To improve an old artificial Christmas tree, prepare one roll of lace ribbon and wire. Cut the ribbon into 12 inch long sections. Crumple the ribbon at the middle and tie it with a small wire. Fifteen ribbons are good for a 7 foot Christmas tree.
Recycled Christmas Bouquet
Instead of trashing those broken Christmas decorations, try to create something useful and meaningful. The leaves were a total waste because of being dirty and very old. Some of the Christmas balls were broken and not good for hanging.

Hamburg/Sausage Potato Stuffing
Had an uncle who made the most delicious potato meat stuffing for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just when he wanted it. He has gone and so did the stuffing as he made it from scratch out of his head. No record of it was ever found.

My husband is a long haul trucker and more often than not will not get home for Christmas until late Christmas Eve night and will have to leave again early on the 26th.

One windy day in my hometown of Bandon, Oregon, my husband and I hopped in the car and headed to the children's park, by our local library. Here, I had an appointment for a photo shoot with my best girlfriend and her precious miracle baby of a daughter (long story).

Hendrix and Harley are Flame Point Siamese. I got these handsome boys a little over 14 years ago. A little boy in the neighborhood was selling kittens for $10 each. I went by and picked out the one I wanted, and told the family I would return later that night to pay them and get the kitten.
Alternative to Cat Litter
It seems there was a hint for something you can get at the Farm and Feed store to use in the place of cat litter, can anyone tell me what it is?

Very good salad. Can use different flavors and colors of gelatin for different holidays to make this more festive. Very, very good!
