  1. My take is that Edward is a man, albeit juvenile in his thinking. Jacob is a boy with raging hormones and immaturity. Neither of them were good, nor were either of them bad. They both have tempers and both have passion. I think they are two sides of the same coin.
  2. I learned my lesson about water and Pyrex about 20 years ago. I had to go to the store and had left my EX-dh in charge of putting the chicken in to bake. I had asked him to put 1/4 inch of water in the bottom so I could catch the juices and make gravy, since he insisted on rice and gravy every night of the week. I got home and the chicken was dutifully in the oven, without the water. My ex-dh said it'd only been in there for about 5 minutes. I very stupidly ran hot water from the tap into a large measuring cup, opened the door, poured and had an explosion! Glass hit my foot and I must sa
  3. My daughter was a huge Twilight junkie; to the point that we bought her a $50 charm bracelet to mirror Jacob's gift to Bella. I have read and re-read the entire series. I don't think it is necessarily written for teenagers, though that's admittedly the mind set of the author. I was captivated, yet disappointed with the books. You will understand why once you've completed the series. I do recommend that you see the movie once you've finished and I will withhold comment about that for now.
  4. If you take Baking Soda and add enough water to work into a paste, it works like a charm against hard to remove stains. At least.... it does for me.
  5. Angela, I used to be plagued with panic attacks about 10 years ago. They lasted about 5 years. The trick I learned with mine was to try.. you've got to TRY to focus on a picture in your mind. For me it was a waterfall.... so beautiful, so peaceful. It streams and falls gracefully to the pool in the bottom. The rocks are a myriad of colors. The water laps and splashes playfully. It's late at night and the moon is out. The moon is so bright, so full of light. The crickets sing in beautiful harmony with one another. There is a soft fluttering breeze against my face. Concentrate.
  6. I would purchase bulk rice and bulk beans. Beans are loaded in nutrients and are very low cost. Being down in the south we eat a lot of beans... lima, butter beans, red beans, split peas. All of these can be made with or without a meat additive. If you'd like a couple of recipes, let me know and I'll pm 'em to ya.
  7. Mascarpone Cheese 1 quart light cream 1/4 teaspoon tartaric acid Heat cream to 180F (82 C). Stir for about 10-15 minutes The cream should thicken with small flecks of curd. Using a DOUBLE layer of FINE cheesecloth in a strainer, pour off the whey and let it drain for about an hour. Put the strainer in a bowl and place it in the refrigerator to drain overnight (or 12 hours). In the morning, scoop out the cheese and put into an airtight container. *Note: If you aren't sure what kind of cheese this is, it is used to make Tiramisu.

  10. Lebanese Cheese 1 quart of plain yogurt 1 tablespoon of salt paper towels sieve 2 bowls 1 spoon Scoop yogurt into the first bowl. Add salt. Stir very well. Line your sieve with paper towels (the better brands) and place it over the second bowl. Dump and scoop / scrape the yogurt/ salt combination into the sieve. Leave alone for 24 hours in your kitchen. Remove the soft cheese from the paper towel and place into a container into your refrigerator. Serve with lots of olive oil and Lebanese seasonings.
  11. Creole Cream Cheese 2 Quarts Skim Milk 1/4 Cup Buttermilk 8 drops Liquid Rennet or 2 tablets Cheesecloth Combine the skim and buttermilk in a good sized saucepan. Over medium heat bring the mixture to 110 degrees F, stirring occasionally. Pour the heated mixture into a large, non-metal bowl. Add the rennet, stir and cover with cheesecloth. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours. After a few hours there should be curds and whey. Line a colander with a double layer of cheesecloth, then spoon the curds into the colander, try to keep them intact. Let this drain for 1 hour or
  12. You're my soulmate, my wife, my lover, my best friend, my loyal companion, and trusted advisor. Without your beauty, wisdom, compassion, understanding, and allure in my life, my existence would be so very colorless. You light up my life and you help me see the colors in Nature all around me. I love you with all that I am, and all that I am is because you love me.

  13. I think I'm one of the few who somehow knew this. I think I have been present at exactly the right time, enough times in the shoutbox to learn it! But thank you for sharing, Stephanie.
  14. I actually have two! I'll post them to ya in PM's so I don't hijack this thread.
