Soaking your seaweed: You will need to soak your dried seaweeds to soften them up. I recommend soaking the arame seaweed overnight, so it is nice and soft. The sea palm takes about 1 hour to soak. The kelp whip and dulse are a quick soak, just a minute or two. Kelp whip is not the same as kombu (thicker more dense kelp). You can use kombu however, but you will need to soak it overnight and cut it into thinner pieces. To soften the kelp noodles follow the instructions above. by nadia

Restoring teak furniture  What You Need:  Rubber Gloves  Two Brushes  Medium Grit Sandpaper  Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool  TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water  Teak Oil  Polyurethane    Instructions:    Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance.    Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible.    Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores.    Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood.    Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture.    Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood.      MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY:  How To Care For Teak Furniture by babyblu3

Hanging boot organizers! I had no idea these existed. You can either purchase them for super cheap: $11.99 via Amazon or you could easily DIY yourself up one with an upcycled comforter bag or an old sheet or some great fabric. Edit : Someone asked “These have bad reviews on amazon… Why would this be a suggestion?” My answer is simple…I find storage options and I share them. I don’t always think to read the reviews, I’m guilty of that with my own purchases. This product in particular, I didn’t think to read the reviews because I have used the shoe versions of these and they worked fine. As for the two bad reviews this one received, you could easily solve one problem with a couple clothespins to hold the sides shut. by Eva

Well, here it is... A Low Carb, High Fat Meat Pie! Let's start with the filling. Finely dice one brown onion, one carrot and 4 sticks of celery. Saute in a hot pan with 100gm diced bacon, garlic and a generous splash of olive oil until lightly browned. Next add 500gm of grassfed beef mince to the pan and brown all over. This next step you can adjust to personal taste (and carb allowance). I add a small splash of Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon of low carb (check bottle or make your own) tomato paste, a good screw of salt and pepper and a shake of dried herbs. Stir through, add 250ml of bone broth and 1/2 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum and place pan in a low oven 150ºC for an hour or two. Now, the crust. Place three cups of grated melting cheese (mozzarella, tasty etc) and 100gm diced cream-cheese into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute, stir and heat for a further minute until its full liquid. To the melted cheese mix add 1 1/2 cups almond meal, 2 eggs and a screw of pepper. Stir by hand to form a dough. COOKING TIP: Splashing a little water on your fingers makes it easier to work the dough into shape. Divide the dough into to portions about 60/40 ratio. Take the larger portion and divide that into six balls. Push these into a large muffin tin (Texas Size) if you have a pie maker all the better... use the dough to fully line the muffin cups and slightly out the top as the dough will shrink slightly on cooking. Bake in a hot oven 220ºC for 10-15mins until starting to brown. Remove from oven and spoon in a generous helping of your meat pie filling. Finally divide your smaller ball of dough into six portions, flatten into circles and place on top, firmly pushing the edges to join the lower pie shell. Prick the top with a fork and return to the hot oven until pies are golden brown.   Enjoy with some low carb, no added sugar tomato sauce. AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE! by tanisha

To have a sacred place is an absolute necessity... You must have a room or a certain hour of the day or so, where you do not know who your friends are, you don't know what you owe anybody or what they owe you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. ~Joseph Campbell by linda

FRIDAY AFTERNOONS:This term, my weekly supervisions are on a Friday at 1pm. This means that my week revolves around one hour (or usually two) of intense one-on-one contact time with my supervisor. After a supervision my brain always hurts so much, and I usually feel mentally drained but also weirdly energetic (?). I usually go to the gym straight after supervisions to release energy, but I’ve also found that the time following a supervision is great for organising the week to come. I had a brand new Moleskine delivered today (yay!), so I spent time drawing out a timetable for next week & I’m gradually filling it in. My week may seem quite empty at the moment, but I usually fill each day in as I go through the week, informed with an overall view of what I need to get done by the end of the week. It may seem unorganised to do this, but my degree is quite self-motivated with hardly any contact time or relevant lectures, so organising my days as I go along works for me. Also: some things here happen very last minute, and I wouldn’t like to tightly pack my schedule early on in the week only to have to change it later. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and would hate to scribble stuff out. But I can tell you something: most of that week from 8am-9pm will be filled in with red: WORK TIME. Thank goodness I love my degree. -Sarah by lindsay0

I have a master list, organized by bin, that I keep a sheet protector, so I can easily refer to it when packing or at the camp site.  Each bin is also labeled with a two-sided label that has the name of the bin on the front and the contents of the bin on the back. by alyssa

This is a really neat idea. Each table has a number so have everyone from that table leave you a note for your anniversary that year.  Maybe not whole books though, as it says on the thing. Perhaps a small notepad that can be easily stored, along with the others, in an old purse, and quickly decorated with stuff to make them identifiable. by matilda

Place buckwheat and nuts in two separate bowls, cover with water and let soak for minimum 1 hour or overnight. Rinse and drain. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. You can also use an immersion blender. Top with fresh berries or pomegranate, bee pollen, cacao nibs, coconut flakes and nut butter. Or whatever you have at home. Keeps for 3-4 days in the fridge. by mattie
