baked Lasagna

Jodi's Christmas Day LasagnaThis is a full-fat, high octane lasagna, so if you're looking for low-fat or diet, better skip this one. This was originally my mother-in-law's recipe, but I've tweaked it through the years and made it my own.


Chicken Curry With Fresh Coconut Milk and salad and rice on plate

Chicken Curry With Fresh Coconut MilkCurry dishes here on the islands are a favorite of mine and especially when I make it with fresh coconut milk. This really adds to the taste of the curry and brings out the flavor. I have made this recipe using shrimp and crab also. No matter what they are delicious and you can add any vegetable that you want. This is also good with fresh broccoli and cauliflower.

English Paper Pieced Flower Pillow - done, the buttons on the leaves can be seen here

English Paper Pieced Flower PillowMy grandson was visiting one day while I was working on some English paper pieced hexagons. He asked if I could make him a pillow. By adding several more rounds to the size I was making for a quilt top block I was able to make a flower. That part was fairly quick. Then he announced that there needed to have a stem with leaves; the project expanded in time and minor complexity.

3 Quart Instant Pot Recipes?I just got a brand new Instant Pot for $10! Now I realize that this is the mini size and there aren't a lot of specific recipes for it. I realize that I can cut the recipes in half that are designed for the more common 6 quart, but I thought I would see if any of you have a favorite recipe you like to use this for. I am a gadget freak and I will use this thing.

Singer Sewing Machine Displaying Error Code E2?I have a Singer 7258 sewing machine. When trying to wind the bobbin, it stops after just a second and shows error code E2. It looks like the needle is not disengaging. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm heartbroken. I have been waiting 3 years to start quilting for my grandchildren.

Making Plain Old Style Bread?I'm not a good baker, so I keep trying different bread recipes. The bread turns out not even close to the bread I had when I was a kid. Can't I just make bread with sugar, yeast, oil, and water? My son always eats up the bread I make, but I think it sucks! I want the plain bread that my Grandma used to make, with few ingredients and it turns out heavenly.


What Breed Is My Dog? - black and dark tan puppy

What Breed Is My Puppy?I got this puppy from a friend and I don't know if this is a German Shepherd or not. Help me figure it out please.

Reprocessing Runny Jelly?I made some jelly on Oct 14 of this year. I followed the directions and sealed my jars and let the stand for 24 hours. The mixture was runny. So I refrigerated it and I just opened the jars and poured the content in a bowl and covered it with plastic wrap.
