7th February 2014  I have been so overrun with requests for the recipe for fudge ever since I tweeted a picture of the finished product earlier in the week, that I feel it is only right and proper to give it to you. In truth, I wasn't sure at first - hence the delay - as I do worry slightly about giving a recipe that involves quite so much boiling sugar. My concerns are not primarily dietary - although I wouldn't want any nutritionist to read by julia

This is one of my favorite go-to quilt patterns for a quick baby quilt. It works really well to show off a main ‘focus’ print contrasting with a variety of prints in scrappy four-patch blocks.

So if you are a 12th Man of Seattle Seahawks, you are gonna love this chair I painted yesterday! This chair was originally oak finish. I was about to paint it white when all of a sudden I thought of something unique and special! To turn it into a Seahawks 12th man chair! My husband is a HUGE fan and he is my inspiration with this one :-) Everything here is hand painted without the help of stencils! by lily22

Einstein, when he arrived in America, was shocked at how Black Americans were treated. “There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States," he said.

Crock-pot Beef Stroganoff. HATED IT. If you do try it, don't follow the comments for making it faster. Made my meat tough as rope, really needs to be low and slow. Overall though I wasn't crazy about the sauce. Most of this went in the trash. There are better recipes out there. by jean
