  1. I found the stems VERY hard to rehydrate well....therefore, I have been putting them into the blender to pulverize them. It will be perfect for cream of broccoli soup.
  2. If I remember correctly, just plain old chicken soup/broth doesn't help. It must have been made from the BONES because that is where the gelatinous substance comes from that actually has the healing properties in it. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
  3. Yeah - I still can't see it either, so it must not be ready yet...
  4. Have you checked to see if any of her epileptic medications cause her blood to be thinner? Does she take an aspirin daily? After you get the bleeding stopped, she needs to not blow her nose for several hours or it will start bleeding again. (You may already know these things...just thinking out loud...)
  5. One way to further cut the cost of baking bread is to bake 2 loaves at once. You're using the same amt of energy in the oven, but doubling your yield.
  6. Funky Pioneer -Did not know about the cayenne pepper - Good to know...Thanks! Snowmom - yes, reflux makes asthma worse.
  7. Also a frugal Christmas for us, and DH had to work 16 hrs today, so the rest of us drove up to his work and spent some time with him there. That was the best part - getting to be together today wherever it happened to be!
  8. Emu oil is a carrier oil that closely resembles our own cells. if you add some emu oil to the ointment, it will actually cause it to penetrate deeper and will work better on muscle aches that it would without it. Thanks for this recipe! Merry Christmas!
  9. Me either, but now I'm feeling guilty about it...
  10. http://mormonfoodstorage.blogspot.com/2008...e-your-own.html Try this one. It's much cheaper.
  11. Here are the ones I've been making. http://mormonfoodstorage.blogspot.com/2008...e-your-own.html They work great!!
  12. I have cleaned mine when cleaning the oven. It works great!
  13. Did you know that the flu is the 6th or 7th top killer of people, behind heart disease, strokes, and respiratory disease? Most people don't think it is serious, yet my oldest DS was PARALYZED when the flu attacked his spinal cord instead of settling in his lungs, like it does for most people. While the flu usually does go for the lungs, it really can attack anywhere. I have known YOUNG people who needed heart transplants because the flu attacked the heart. Most of them died waiting on a heart...
  14. Well, I would think getting sick would benefit the medical community more - a healthy, well person doesn't need a doctor, but a sick-on-death's-door one sure does...just my opinion...
  15. As we say at my house, "Ya'll just ain't right..."
  16. I just read that to my 16 yo DS - he loved it!!
  17. Ummm - how do they get pollenized? Don't you need bees for that?
  18. I made a "treasure chest" with my church kids one year. Take a plain jar or plastic container, glue beans (or macaroni, or rice, or "whatever") inside the bottom and up the sides, making it look as "real" as possible. Leave the very core hollow. Then, put the lid back on, and set it on your pantry shelf with all the other beans, rice, or "whatever". You could use buttons and put the jar in your sewing room, use cotton balls for a bathroom "safe"...
  19. Baking Soda, mixed with peppermint oil. Works great...
  20. For the bed - I heat a "rice sock" up and use that. It works on the same premise as the cherry pits. I simply took an old tube sock, filled it with plain white rice and sewed the end shut. Microwave it for 2 minutes and you're done! This works great for arthritis, too, as it is a moist heat.
  21. I think I paid $1.44 for 12 at Wal mart...
  22. If you know someone who has a Rainbow vacuum cleaner you could borrow - those things will clean anything. A Rainbow will get the sand up that is UNDER your carpet...
