A loaded baked potato with asparagus

Crockpot Baked Potatoes
Most of time, you wont need to add water to slow cookers or crockpots. Because things cook slowly, the liquids created by the food dont evaporate like the do in a hot oven or on the stovetop. After you have made a few meals, you will understand better and you...

Try some sweet cinnamon butter. Soften the butter and add your preferred sweetener (powdered sugar, honey, etc.), add cinnamon and any other spices you desire. Mix and refrigerate. I use cinnamon, nutmeg, bit of ginger, and/or pumpkin pie spice. Delicious!!

Fixing Fudge?
Not an expert but my thoughts are that you havent let the sugar melt completely (thus the grainy feeling) And not cooking it long enough (not setting up). Sometimes it takes experimenting to get a recipe just right.

Chiles Are Brown on Top Instead of Red?
Mine look kind of like that. Im in hot Arizona and I think they are getting a sunburn. We have eaten them without problems. You might take one to a plant nursery in your area and ask them if you should worry.

Cleaning Old Coins?

Making Your Own Ankle Weights?

Making Pillows Out of a Down Comforter?

Eggplant Not Setting Fruit?
You can take a flower that looks about ready to fall off or die and then rub it inside the other flowers to cross-pollinate them. Rub gently so you dont damage the existing flowers. I havent used this on eggplant but it worked with many other veggies.
