Instant Pot Blueberry Oatmeal

Instant Pot Blueberry OatmealSummer is here, and this is a great way to make breakfasts for a few days. Blueberries are at their peak. You can use other fruits, too. This tastes just like blueberry pie, but much healthier!


whipped cream on piece of Purple Sweet Potato Pie

Purple Sweet Potato PieI'm sure many of you have had sweet potato pie. This pie is very similar but uses purple sweet potatoes. Baking the sweet potatoes in the oven (in lieu of boiling them) gives this a beautiful creamy consistency and not at all watered down. Baking them also retains their beautiful purple colour. Purple sweet potatoes can be found in grocery stores labeled as Okinawan, Hawaiian, or purple sweet potatoes. They are packed full of potassium, B6, vitamin C, and fiber.


Kimchi in bowl

Easy Homemade KimchiAlthough it will take 2-3 days to complete the fermentation, kimchi has an excellent spicy, tangy flavor. A staple in Korea food, this side dish is easy to make and loaded with "healthy bacteria".



Making Rainbow Lollipops - lollies on sticks stuck into a piece of white foam packaging

Making Rainbow LollipopsThis is a super fun craft that doubles as a delicious treat. Use hard candies to melt into rainbows for one side of the lollipop, then create your own silver-spiked clear hard candy for the other side. The result is a beautiful lollipop that has a highly saturated rainbow side, and a pastel sparkly rainbow on the flip side. These are super gorgeous when held up to the light.

Longarm Sewing Machine Error Code?My TinLizzie18 is sick. It turns on, gives the error code "uC", and then the screen turns to the normal "start sewing" screen. When I press the foot pedal, the machine moves lightening fast. I can't make it slow down (releasing the pressure on the foot does nothing. Changing the speed does nothing.) The only way to stop it is to turn it off. The TinLizzie company has since gone out of business.

Lights Not Working After a Short?A bedroom light fitting shorted and now none of the lights work. Some of the wires were burnt so I cut out the burnt wires and stripped back.

I then isolated the live feed and it is showing a current so I hooked up a bulb to test the live feed with the neutral, but the bulb didn't light up.

Deodorizing Laundry Soap for Sensitive Skin?I used baking soda or vinegar in the past, but my clothes stink, at least to me. Maybe they stink to other people whether I use funky deodorizing laundry soap or not, or maybe only to me. I've been using Arm and Hammer with OxiClean and then Tide with Downy. Now I'm itching, ick. Luckily I'm at home, or I'd look really interesting :) Whatever it is, I need fresh-smelling laundry. What can I use?

I checked the battery, cleaned the ignition harness and wires, cleaned the brake override harness, and still nothing.
