Hello all,  Here is the progress of my aerogarden and my chia pet cilantro.  I also have chia pet basil and marjoram.   Everything looks great, and so far I love the aerogardens.  I am waiting for the oregano, but everything else has sprouted!   Basil,… MORE

Hello everyone,  I made sourdough pretzels last night.  They were delish.  I could taste the sourness, I can't wait till it gets more of a kick to it.  It was fun watching the starter turn and seeing the pretzel dough triple in size!!  And the wonderful… MORE

Hello all you decorators,  I need your opinions.  What should I do with the area above my stove?  I was thinking about having saute pans hang across the area, but the adhesive hooks don't stick on my tile.  What do you think I can do there?  I could probably come up… MORE

My neighbor gave me about 40lbs of fresh California limes yesterday.  What to do.  Today I zested 4 cups worth of lime zest, made 2 key lime pies,  lime muffins, and lime vinaigrette.  Didn't really put a dent in the 4 bags of limes.  Planning on freezing juice… MORE

Well, over the holidays I kept it filled with sparkling cider but now what.  I drink it the wine faster than I can keep it in my cooler!  Especially the good stuff.  I'll have to hit Trader Joes for two buck chuck.  Is it still $2.00?  Hope so. MORE

I bought this window hummingbird feeder a little after Thanksgiving.  It has been out ever since with no takers.  I change the nectar every 10 days, but I haven't had one bird.  I live in the bay area in CA.  Anyone know why I'm not getting any birds?  I stuck the… MORE

I hate peeling, but with this cute little peeler it isn't that bad.  You slip it on your finger and just peel away.  Your hand is closer to what you are peeling so it is easier.  It is very handy and I find it much better that the long peelers.  I bought the peeler at… MORE

Bought new birdhouses, aren't they pretty.  Anyway, I just wanted to tell any bakers of cookies that these cookie scoops are great.  They are kind of like ice cream scoops with the release mechanism.  All the cookies are uniform and cook evenly.  I love it.  I… MORE
