This is a safe-haven group where you can share your tried and true recipes and post on any topic of conversation you wish. Our intent is to keep a peaceful drama-free group that all may enjoy. So let's keep it upbeat and use common sense when posting.

We believe in freedom of speech; however, we also feel that we can have discussions without resorting to harassment or bullying.

God is a big part of our lives. All religions, beliefs, and peaceful folks are welcome to Tried & True Recipes!

Please do not post your recipes with links to off-site blogs. Post your recipes on JAP so we can all access them from the main database.

Now, let's get to the cooking!

10 Hours Ago

Our son and his girl friend.

Chris and Heather were over this weekend--they live in Bend, OR which is 3 hours from us in Central Oregon--and they went to a Halloween party on Saturday night at some friends of Heather's. Heather made Chris's costume and he was so thrilled with it. She didn't use a pattern! Just pictures from Star Wars (for you that do not know who this character is.) I was mad at myself because I didn't take this with the light saber--yes, he has one that is so real and even makes the noise when moved.
Check out Heather's dog, Miss Ellie, wondering what the heck Heather is wearing. lol

Can You Answer These Questions

They say only about 20% of people can answer these the first time.

I'll give the answers in the reply section.

The Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT), also known as the world’s shortest IQ test, claims it only takes three questions to tell if you’re a genius.

Developed in 2005 by Princeton psychologist Shane Frederick, the quiz assesses your ability to process information slowly and rationally, rather than jumping to quick conclusions. “In order to succeed in the CRT, you must spend time reflecting on your answer and question your intuitive response,” .

Here are 14 brain exercises that can make you smarter.

Think you have what it takes?

Give it a shot!

Here are the three questions:

1. A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

2. If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?

3. In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake?
