homemade watercolor paints, they're solid
Combine 3 tablespoons each of the baking soda, cornstarch and vinegar and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the corn syrup/sugar substitute. Allow the fizzing to subside and mix completely. Pour the mixture into whatever you'd like to use to hold your paints. I bought a $2 paint tray at Michaels, but you can also use a plastic egg carton. Add the food coloring to create your desired palette and leave out to harden for three hours. Make sure you add the food coloring relatively quickly; the mixture actually starts to solidify almost right away. by helene

Delicious food + great friends = good times. That’s what the holidays are all about to me. I love to make over-the-top appetizers. But let’s face it, this time of year is crazy-busy. You can impress, even if time is short, with these super-fast, eye-catching starters that won’t break the bank. Have Andouille With Smoked Paprika and Red Wine ready in a snap for last-minute company. Or for an almost spontaneous party, make our entire selection of recipes in less than two hours. by Debra Bryfogle

Rock Candy:  2 cups water, 1 cup white corn syrup, 3 1/2 cups sugar, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar. Then I added: 1/4 tsp vanilla extract,  3 drops of blue gel food coloring. I boiled the mixture and then continued stirring it on the heat until it reached 300 degrees F (used a candy thermometer to measure the temp). At that point, I poured it into a tray to cool. It hardened up in about an hour and then I smashed it to pieces. by sarajuan

How To Clean Burnt Pans

 1 cup of vinegar
2 tablespoons of baking soda
1 cup of water (give or take depending on the size of your pan)
A burnt stainless steel pan that was left empty and unattended on a heated hot plate. oops!.
A scourer

1. Fill the bottom of the pan with a layer of water.
2. Add the vinegar.
3. Bring the pan to the boil. It should be looking a bit cleaner already.
4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the baking soda. Expect fizz!
5. Empty the pan and scour as normal, if necessary add an extra bit of dry baking soda.
6. If there are any super stubborn marks that don't come off with scouring, make a paste of baking soda and a couple of drops of water. Leave the paste on the marks for a while and return to clean as normal.
7. Tad-ah! Now you can put your feet up and enjoy the many hours you saved yourself standing over the sink. by Colorado.Mary.S

description from baker: I just used box white cake mixes - 10 of them that I bought on sale. I had 6 6x6 cake pans and I mixed and baked 2 cake mixes at a time, divided them into 6 bowls and mixed in Wilton gel food coloring bought at JoAnns. It's not that hard to do. The hardest part was actually mixing all the icing up (it was a cream cheese frosting) - I had to do it in 4 batches because it just wouldn't all fit in my KitchenAid (powdered sugar everywhere). by lawanda
