Cake DropsThis recipe was "developed by" Cynthia Ann Starr in Louisiana. It started out as cake mix cookies but I had forgotten the exact recipe and "thought" it was 3 eggs. These taste like cake and are soft like cake but you can pick them up like cookies. Freezes wonderfully.


Whipped Potatoes and Carrots

Whipped Potatoes and CarrotsThis is one of my kids' favorite potato dishes. I used to make this when they were babies, to get them to eat both potatoes and vegetables at the same time. I still make these because you can spice these up. What a great dish to compliment any roast or meal you are cooking!

Glue to Remove SplintersTo get out the splinter, put a drop of glue where the splinter sticks out. Let the glue dry, then peel the glue. The splinter will stick to the glue and go with the glue, right to the garbage can.

Pair Necklaces with EarringsI hang all my jewelry from hooks. Certain earrings go with the necklace. When I have the hook kind, I slip it into the chain or just use a small opened paperclip to hang them both together.

Mashed Potatoes from Oven Chips (Fries)I did this initially when I ran out of fresh potatoes, and it worked really well - you place the chips in a saucepan of water, and boil as you would potato that you'd just peeled and cut up.

Parade Float Idea?I own a small grocery store and we're having a town celebration and I need a idea for a float entry. The name of my store is Bonnie's Hometown Grocery and I also have a greenhouse called Bonnie's Bloomers. I would like to try to tie it in with some sort of song because I think a parade needs fun music.

Craftsman Lawn Tractor Won't Start?I have a Craftsman DYS-4500 (917.276906) lawn tractor with a 26HP twin cylinder Kohler engine that won't start. It was running fine up until about a week ago. While I was cutting the grass it just stopped. No loud noises, no metal clanging or anything like that.

Water to Ice Maker Freezing?i have a 2003 Kenmore side by side fridge. I recently moved and when I connected the fridge, the water freezes in the shute to go into the ice tray. I have defrosted the line and water comes back out, but gets frozen again. Water no longer comes out of the dispenser as well. What could be the problem?

Water Leaking Into Bottom Freezer?I have a Kenmore model 596.72003011 bottom mount refrigerator. There seems to be water leaking into the freezer compartment from some where? When it gets into the bottom there it forms an ice lake. After about 3 days the ice lake reaches the seal and then the units begins to leak water onto the floor.

Treating a Puppy for Worms?I just got my 6 week old puppy today and was told he needed to be dewormed. I bought him some Sentry Worm X DS. Earlier I checked his poop for worms and there were none. I gave him the medicine anyways, he didn't take it all, but when he pooped again it had about 3 or 4 long worms they were not moving.
