Dear Carmina, Thank you for the comment on my post about how to etch your name into the bottom of your glass pans… “Quick question, do you have any problems with the etching after it’s been in the oven?” I wanted to give you a Quick Answer! I wanted to tell you that “Yes! Yes! […]
Rust Converter: Outta the auto shop and into the craft store.
Spring has (mostly) sprung and I am beginning to turn my attention to my patio area. Not. Good. I have some tall hurricane lanterns that have been sitting out in the elements (if Southern California really even has elements) for 2 or 3 years, and although we had sprayed a clear sealant over them, the […]
Personalized Dishes – How to bring a casserole to a potluck… and not lose your pyrex.
I love to cook. I’m happy to bring something (or a couple of somethings) to a potluck. I am not happy when I don’t get my Pyrex back again… There is no such thing as Dish Karma. If you lose one, another doesn’t show up as a random act of dish replacement. The Land of […]
This is what a present from Santa should look like.
As Santa prepares to wrap presents for the good little boys and girls, I thought I’d share a few things I know about Santa’s gift wrapping preferences. Santa likes simplicity. His wrapping paper should be plain red or plain green. He doesn’t care for patterns or prints. He likes a simple ribbon tied in a bow. […]
Diet Tip of the Day. (Just one….that’s all I’ve got.)
Do you have that certain time of the day where you must. have. a snack? I do. It’s around 3:00 or so. That’s the time of day where I am likely to scarf down a stack of Oreos eat a block of cheese make some bad choices. I don’t know what it is about that […]
Never walk into a hardware store and say, “Hi. I’m looking for some caulk.”
Have you ever picked at a tiny piece of wallpaper that was peeling up and before you knew what was happening, you had peeled the whole room? Or on a smaller scale, chipped and peeled of your nail polish? (Very bad for your nails, by the way….) I was at the kitchen sink and I […]
What’s the best way to store celery?
You know how there are some items that are common in some people’s kitchens, but for whatever reason, it just isn’t common in yours? Celery is one of those things at my house. I buy it if I’m making stuffing or Bloody Marys. That’s about it. This celery? I bought it in mid November for […]
Fine. Clean out your clutter, but make sure your cabinets are properly stocked, OK?
All over BlogLand, there are posts going up about getting rid of clutter. About getting rid of stuff and emptying out cabinets and closets. This is not one of those posts. I am in Sunny Southern California, but Al Roker just mentioned that almost half of the country is snowed in and/or trying to operate […]
Christmas clean-up is the first step in getting ready for next year’s Christmas
I would have posted this sooner, but I was following the very advice I’m about to dispense to you. Pack up your Christmas stuff with an eye towards organization and what you are going to do next year. I understand that not everyone changes their color scheme on an annual basis (like I do), so […]
The skinny on Santa: How to tell your kids the truth about Santa Claus.
When I was a kid, I figured out the Santa thing on my own: Why does Santa have Mom’s handwriting? Why did he use the same wrapping paper as my Mom? (Even then, the idea that he wrapped presents at each house seemed terribly inefficient to me….) As an adult, I made sure when Santa […]
