Recipes

Easy Preserved Lemons in jar & bowl

Easy Preserved LemonsThis is a simple way to make preserved lemons. A little drizzle of this stuff goes a long way when making salads, using as a topping, or in your marinades. It's great because it doesn't have just a lemon flavour, it's also got the taste of the dissolved lemon rind, which is amazing. There's nothing quite like it.

 

Korean Inspired Fried Rice on plate

Korean Inspired Fried RiceThis is my version of a Korean fried rice. I took inspiration from the strong and spicy flavours you find in Korean barbecue and blended it with my usual fried rice recipe. The outcome is a very punchy rice with a comforting soft egg on top. Koreans typically place a raw egg yolk on top of their meals, but I'm not so keen on that. A fried egg, slightly on the over easy side, does just the trick. This was a huge hit with my friends!

14th Birthday Party IdeasIt's my 14th birthday this year and I'm stumped on what to do for it. My birthday is in March. I want a small birthday this year, maybe 2 or 3 friends.

Value of an Antique Fainting Couch

Value of an Antique Fainting CouchI inherited a fainting couch. My parents reupholstered it 30 years ago. They replaced the straw padding with foam and replaced the tattered cloth. The only identifying mark is a stamp that reads "P.U.L." I suspect it was made in north Georgia or a surrounding state. I do not know when or exactly where. Can anyone help me?

 

Finding a Canister Lid Seal - closeup

Finding a Canister Lid SealI'm looking for a canister seal ring. Apparently, it is unusual in the replacement world in that the ring fits as a band around a part of the lid which inserts itself into the canister. I found lots that are horizontally flat or ones which fit like a washer into the lid threads. Mine is vertically flat with a flange (profile is a sideways "T" [-- shape).
