Crispy Lemon Rosemary Chicken on plate with noodles & asparagus

Crispy Lemon Rosemary ChickenThis juicy, tender chicken has a fantastic crispy exterior. Marinating it in lemon, garlic and rosemary gives it a fantastic tart flavour throughout. If you like your chicken extra crisp like I do, pop it under the broiler for a few minutes at the end. I used my toaster oven to make these.


vegan muffins in a bowl

Vegan Carrot Banana MuffinsThis is a go-to food in my house. I make it with zero fat and virtually no sugar and it tastes terrific. I will make a ton of these and they are my breakfast. I got this from an online recipe but I adapted it by replacing the oil with aquafava, and making it into muffins. I also reduce the sugar. I also always double the recipe, so the ingredients I list (save for sugar) are twice what she recommends.


Pork Fried Rice with Duck Sauce in bowl

Pork Fried Rice with Duck SauceI had leftover pork tenderloin from dinner yesterday. So I made two cups of white rice after cleaning up my kitchen. Fried rice is best made with day old cold rice. This is an incredibly easy fast recipe! So fast, it was a bit difficult to take too many step by step pictures. I did my best.



Repairing a Shower Faucet - old and new

Repairing a Shower Faucet?I've been trying to fix my shower faucet, but have been having problems. I had to replace the stems/seat because they are very old and leaky. I ordered a new set online as I am disabled and don't have a car to drive to a hardware store. Once I tried to install it it did not fit. The new seat and stems are too wide and don't fit.

Value of a Vintage White Sewing Machine and Cabinet - black and brass vintage machine in a lovely wood cabinet

Value of a Vintage White Sewing Machine and Cabinet?I have a Vintage White rotary sewing machine in a Mt. Vernon cabinet. I inherited it about 25-30 years ago. I would like to know how much it can sell for. The motor no. is 325259, 110 volts up to 75 cycles. I have never tested the sewing machine to see if it works. I saw one like this that apparently sold in California for over $450. I am not sure the market for antiques would support that price.

Rubber on a Vintage Doll Is Breaking Down - old doll

Rubber on a Vintage Doll Is Breaking Down?I have a Sun Rubber vintage doll from the 1940s/50s and the rubber is getting hard and starting to get brittle in areas such as his hands, a spot on the back of his head, and one of his arms. I have cleaned him with soft non-abrasive soap, but I was wondering if there is some sort of emollient I could use to soften the rubber. Anyone have any ideas?
