Binky Babies: For these sweet, sleepy babes, start with small round pumpkins. For each, cut the nipple from a pacifier and attach the base to the pumpkin with pins, pressing them through any holes in the pacifier. Add eyes with black marker. Top with a baby's cap or, if there's a long curly stem, tie on a ribbon bow. by charmaine

Bohemian braid tutorial. Helpful tips: Fold the bottom part of your hair forward, up and through the hole. Then pull down and through, pull out and tighten.  (Something I found that is helpful is I did a small braid in between each twist braid.) Repeat again. After the second twist braid, take out the 2nd clear hair tie, then repeat the process all the way down. by dresdenfan

Only six small spoons were recovered from the Mary Rose, three pewter and three wooden, all between 14 and 15 cm long. This small number may be due to the size of the spoons, meaning that after the sinking many simply floated away or were made of a less hardy material.    The pewter spoons would have belonged to officers, and their high tin/low lead content suggests they were made in England    The wooden spoons were made of Maple, and were used by the ordinary crew.

Wasabi Salmon Burgers.   Bring out the flavors of salmon with a Japanese-inspired infusion of ginger, sesame oil and wasabi. If you serve these patties on whole-wheat buns, consider reduced-fat mayonnaise and sliced cucumbers as condiments. Or skip the buns and set the patties atop a vinegary salad of greens, carrots, radishes and sprouts. INGREDIENTS 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce 1 1/2 teaspoons wasabi powder, (see Note) 1/2 teaspoon honey 1 pound salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) 2 scallions, finely chopped 1 egg, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil  STEPS 1. Whisk soy sauce, wasabi powder and honey in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.  2. With a large chef's knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy). Continue chopping, rotating the knife, until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add scallions, egg, ginger and oil; stir to combine. Form the mixture into 4 patties. The mixture will be moist and loose, but holds together nicely once the first side is cooked.  3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes. Turn and continue to cook until firm and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Spoon the reserved wasabi glaze evenly over the burgers and cook for 15 seconds more. Serve immediately.  TIPS Ingredient Note: Wasabi powder, when mixed with water, becomes the green paste most of us know from sushi restaurants. The powder is available in jars in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets or in almost all Asian markets. Store at room temperature for up to 1 year.  Tip: To skin a salmon fillet: Place it on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding the skin down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30 degree angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either. Or have your fishmonger do it for you.
