I loved my Nintendo DS. While mine was also pink, it certainly didn't look this cute, but I used to play it quite a bit when I was in high school. It was a fun way for me to wind down and relax, and I had a lot of games that required brainpower, so I was learning at the same time. by kaye

Our main priority was a fun, festive event where guests could really let their hair down. We always used to laugh at the dress codes for events when we lived in New York, so we thought it would be fun to tell people to dress “fiesta chic,” which we defined as something bright that one could have fun in. Everyone took it seriously and when put together, it was amazing! by rebecca2

MOVING TIPS!!!!  for example: When we moved last, I made a photo copy of our floor plan and shrunk it. I taped one onto each box and put a red dot in the room where the box belonged. It went SO well - we had all the boxes in the right rooms and it only took our family 30 minutes to unload us from the truck! (If only the actual unpacking went that quickly, right?!) by lynda

Chicken Parm Meatballs. Delicious. Amazing how much these tasted like a plate of chicken parmigiana. Super easy to put together, I left out fennel seeds and made my meatballs a little bit smaller (closer to golf ball size). Instructions say to bake for 15 minutes - mine took 25. Definitely a repeat dinner. ****1/2 by CrisC

Geodesic dome connector. I have only built one dome, and that was back in the youth of my carpentry career. There were three of us building it, which was a number that worked well with the project. We prefabricated all of the panels, and then assembled it. It was large, with a 20' radius. I appreciated all of the geometry, amd trigonometry that I had studied. It was fasciating as it came together and quite beautiful. McC by neva

cool fairy wings made from wire, tissue paper and resin and decided to give it a whirl.  .  They're quite simple...we just formed rough wing shapes out of thicker wire and then wrapped skinny wire around a few times. Then we used Elmer's glue to attach a bit of metallic tissue paper to the wire. When that was dry we spread some Easy Cast epoxy resin (the "mix-2-equal-parts-of-the-2-bottles-together" stuff) on them, suspended them from a little dowel and let them dry.

A believable friendship, of course, depends most of all on casting. “Benedict was the only person we offered Sherlock to,” Gatiss says. “Casting John [Watson] was much harder. Then, when we got them in the same room together, Steve [Moffat] just said to me, ‘Look, there’s the series.’ And it was absolutely true. It’s an instant chemistry, and they have it in real life as well as on screen.” by simone

Chili Soy Sauce Steamed Fish. Made this tonight and it was so good! I used Red Snapper steamed with garlic, red peppers and shaved carrots. For the sauce I used ginger powder, brown sugar instead of white and a bit of veggie broth instead of water. I wrapped the fish and sauce in tin foil and steamed it in a veggie steam basket. Only took 11-12 mins! by VoyageVisuel

French Coconut Pie.  Easiest pie I've ever made and it was a huge hit for Thanksgiving.  It literally took about 15 minutes to put it together and pop it in the oven. Trust me, there were no leftovers.  (I'll use less sugar and unsweetened coconut) :). by shopportunity
