The SCS cookbook and all the working going into is amazing! I'm trying to find the beginning of the talk about it, but there are so many posts, I keep getting lost. Big Question - have I missed it? I so want to try these ideas, good and others. The lotion has me intrigued. I've not found the original start for that yet either, so will take some time tomorrow and see if I can find it. Everyone is so great with sharing - but that's what we do - RIGHT! Cindy

Default spumoni slices

someone mentioned that the dough for this was too thin and couldn't be spread out enough. When I have made them, I use a LOAF PAN lined with plastic wrap. Pat in each colored layer on top of each other firmly in loaf pan,
cover and chill overnight then continue with the directions to cut and bake.
These are very good, very colorful, and using loaf pan makes the dough layers a satisfactory thickness. Hope this helps!

Oops, sorry wrong thread!

Well, I could start a lotion store with all the lotions I have purchased that I don't like!! Sure wish I could find some unscented stuff somewhere. Our dollar store had none, and also no Vitamin E Cream. Bought a $10 jar (8oz) at Meijers...and the scent is so unpleasant, sort of like stinking stale lilacs, so hopefully whatever lotion I put with it will overpower that stench. I really like the idea of buying my own oils and scenting the recipe that way, but it is sure an ordeal to find unscented anything!!!

Citric acid can also me purchased at bulk and health food stores. I use it to make AWESOME fizzy bath salts. It also contains baking soda, when they hit water they make a fizzy reaction just lije a bath bomb but really quick! I will post to my blog in the next week. Link in my signature line.

What a great tip I may even try this idea for my chocolate peanut butter swirl cookies. The recipe calls for rolling out the peanut butter dough like a jelly roll and then spreading on the melted chocolate over the dough. It is very hard to roll it up once the chocolate is spread on it. I think this year I will layer the peanut butter and chocolate in a loaf pan, chill and then slice. I know the flavor will still be delicious even though it is a different shape. This idea sounds a lot less stressful. Have a great holiday and TFS.

Wow, 25 pages of ideas!
I make about 70-75 cards each year, this year I had my 6 year old draw a reindeer and scanned it into the computer. I printed these off and added snowflakes and a plaid cloth scarf. Very easy compared to usual and very cute.
I also make 12 x 12 scrapbook pages and put them on a calendar for the grandmothers - each month they can just take the page off and put it in the albums I have sent marked with my boys names, so they get both a calendar and a scrapbook.
I just finished 36 boxes of Fudge... I made about 6 recipes and went down to Archivers and punched out the cute square boxes to put it in. I used the reindeer again with a message and used it as a tag for the boxes. They look pretty festive in red and green.
I also try to make an ornament for the Godparents each year, this year will be a star - wrap the thicker wire around a large star cookie cutter and roll up the ends, add thinner wire with a few beads and probably a cute ribbon. I am not done with them as they have not had my wire in stock for the past couple weeks at Michael...

This isn't a stamping craft but I am so pleased at how it turned out. Every year I try and think of a craft I can make with all my little daycare children aged 2-6, that is a reasonable price and fun to make. I was recently at the dollar store and purchased 2 pkgs of little glass votive candle holders with the candles in it and there were 3 holders in each pkg. I have a stack of old used CD's so I hot glued the bottom of the glass votive onto the center of the CD with the shiny silver side up. Next I cut out pieces of green and red felt to the bottom....the printed side of the CD so it won't mark up furniture.
The kids are gluing shiny little stars and snowflakes on CD around the candle and we will wrap them up for their parents for Christmas. They look really pretty and the shiny part of the CD is so reflective. THey are so proud of their creations and it is nice to give your mom and dad something sprecial that they made.
Easy assembly for my part too...just need a glue gun.

Vit E Cream for the Canadian girls, is in the pharmacy section of your Walmart, Superstore, or Zellers (with Eczema skin treatments and such). I've been buying it for years (great for reducing scars, it's like the cure all for all skin ailments, it seems). Just ask someone in the pharmacy section. After seeing the recipe I went and bought a couple tubs for $4 each, it was the Walmart brand (Equate). Have never looked in the dollar store....

There it it ladies! Very simple but very good! It is really thick so good for winter. I use all generic stuff. Also when I made it a few years ago, I spooned it into baby food jars and sealed it with the lids that I had painted gold/silver, and then added a sticker to the lid. Of course, you can use different jars BUT this stuff is thick so make sure you can get fingers into jar to get it out. KWIM?


I'm going tomorrow to get this stuff and put it with the lotion recipe that is on other thread with a similar title as this one, paste the recipe about (I hope), The name of the lotion is Denise's Lotion and she said that she buys all of her ingredients for it at Dollar General.
HERE IS THE LOTION RECIPE

Wow guys! I've missed pages and pages here. Everybody is getting such wonderful things done and I'm sooooo far behind!

Anyway, I have a quick question -- does anyone know a good recipe for spiced apple cider? We're having family in on Saturday!

Had this last Sat. and got my friend's recipe. Robyn's Wassail (She made this up.)
1 1/2 cans frozen apple juice, diluted per instructions
1/2 can frozen orange juice, diluted per instructions
1/2 can frozen cranberry juice, diluted per instructions
2 teabags (She used Red Zinger)
oranges studded with cloves, floated into this mixture
nutmeg and cinnamon to taste
Heat all together. She used a crock pot. Enjoy! It was wonderful!
I immediately asked for the recipe. Let me know if you try it, and how you like it.

I've been trying to focus on the baking book/doc, however, this one is larger and seems to have more items than the last document I posted for downloading. It also might help those just jumping in, so they don't have to go search through the entire thread to locate an idea or recipe, or my document. (Which is what I am having to do, page by page, from each of the two threads for the baking recipes..)

I think we've confused the system here, LOL, as I've noticed I'm missing some info here and there, and I've tried on both threads several times to do a search for a particular idea/recipe by the name alone, and I just get an error message! Well, we are at over 1000 posts on the other thread, and probably about the same here, although I didn't check the numbers!!

OK - those interested, those new, and those who might want to take another look to then provide input on the recipe book document (as I'm using the format per say from this one being posted here, for that one as well), perhaps consider downloading it? Those new, you might find something fun that you didn't notice..or from the other thread which you've not read.

Those who've already downloaded the previous one, you can toss that now, and use this, as it has more items in it!?!?!

Those who wish to help with ANY ideas and input, please download this, as it's been buttoned up a bit since the last one (at least I tried), and it might help you, should you desire, to provide any input at all...

So, here it is.....drum roll..(ha-ha) not.....
Can anybody put the document that EmptyNestMom so graciously made for us into a PDF? My Word has gone crazy and I can't open the document. EmptyNestMom, thank you so much for your hard work on this!

Hopefully this post will reach everyone who has emailed me asking for my grandma's pineapple squares and russian tea cakes. I posted it on my blog today here:
http://blog.papermonkey.org/index/20...e-recipes.html

Please do not add my grandma's pineapple squares to the SCS book though, it has a lot of meaning to me and I know I am silly but there you go. It is very old fashioned anyway and is not for everyone

Has anyone made the Peppermint Bark this year? I tried making it and my dark chocolate and white chocolate layer keep separating? I cooled my dark chocolate outside (it was freezing) and cooled down my white chocolate before layering it on, then added the peppermint. Cooled it again for about 2 hours outside and when I went to break it, the white layer and the dark layer separated in about 1/2 of the chunks?????????

I would also like to know how to keep the peppermint bark from seperating. I bought some in a tin two years ago and it was so good I decided to make some. It kept falling apart, so I gave up. Anyone have any tips for Sheila and me?

each chocolate was too cold to meld together -I have been making chocolates for more than 25 yrs - I let the first layer cool for about 10 minutes or so (room temp), than add the second layer on top - let set up a few minutes than add the peppermint candies pieces to that and than let all cool together.........I was taught to put it in the fridge to set up - if in a hurry I will put in the freezer for 5-10 mins. depending on the thicknesss but I do notice that if I put it in the freezer condensation will form on top of the pieces when it comes up to room temp.

AHHH, thank you. I was thinking that this was it last night. But EVERY recipe I read (and I read a ton of them on the web) said to cool the 1st layer (usually they said in the freezer) before adding the second layer. I'll remember this for the next batch and see how it turns out!

So, just barely let it set AND at room temperature, then add the white chocolate layer. Makes since. Now I just wish that Trader Joes's still carried their white chocolate pound plus bars!

Default Candy bark layers separating

Layers in cookies and candies sometimes separate when the upper layer has nothing to grip onto. ... Painters refer to it as "tooth" -- they sand an area of wall or woodwork or use a slightly rough primer so the final coat of paint has something to hold onto. ... In cookie and candy terms, don't make the bottom layer too smooth before cooling it slightly; the slight texture will give the top layer something to grip when it is placed on top. HTH

7x7 Prayer Journal

Here is the link to the blog where I got the 7x7 prayer journal idea from: http://audreycaroline.blogspot.com/2...ayers-day.html

Putting it together as a gift for others came from CK here on SCS. I took chipboard coasters and covered them with designer papers and embellies. I printed out the prayers onto c/s too. I used my bind-it-all and 3/4" spirals for the first time to turn them into little journals. For the journal for my SIL I replaced the general pronouns/nouns (ie child/ren, they, s/he, etc) with the names of her kids to make it more personalized. I hope that helps.
