This is a group where we can sit back and enjoy chatting with each other rather than on the recipes. Hopefully in return this will free up some of the recipe comment sections of unwanted chatter.

Thanks and have fun!!!

Breaking hard candy

By Rose O'Connell - Yesterday at 12:01 PM

I know there is probably a lot of baking going on this weekend. I recently discovered a new way to break up hard candy to put in cookies or other recipes. Lay them out on some parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Put in the oven at 300 for about 8 min. Let it cool and you can break it up with your hands.

gingerbread cookies

By Sandy Mika - Thursday at 11:54 AM

I made a soft gingerbread cookie dough recipe I had found online, and made one pan of the cookies to try before I baked the rest of it. They are the worst tasting cookies ever. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can try to salvage the rest of this dough? It is so over powering of cloves and molasses. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I'd really hate to throw out all that dough without try to fix it some how.

The healer

By manhal rashdan - Saturday, December 13 at 6:07 AM

An elderly couple were watching one of those television preachers on TV one night. The preacher faces the camera, and announces, "My friends, I'd like to share my healing powers with everyone watching this program. Place one hand on top of your TV & the other hand on the part of your body which ails you & I will heal you." The old woman has been having terrible stomach problems, so she places one hand on the television, and her other hand on her stomach. Meanwhile, her husband approaches the television, placing one hand on top of the TV and his other hand on his groin. With a frown his wife says, "John, he's talking about healing the sick, not raising the dead."

Yesterday I was walking back to my car and in the parking space next to my car was...a man's wedding ring. A simple design, but quite heavy. There's no inscription, except the maker's mark. I think it might be platinum, from the markings. I placed an ad online and in the paper. Maybe I can find the owner.

Funny thing is, this is the second man's wedding ring that I have found. I found one last year, at this time, in the mall parking lot. That one was chrome, inset with diamonds. Never found the owner.

What's the most interesting item you have found?
