I don't know about you, but I spent my night welcoming 2010 with a cutie ;)
Unfortunately, she is not my puppy, but I'll still get lots of play time with her :)
I need to thank Hilary and Domino Sugar for providing me with a gift card to create some holiday goodies!! I checked out their site and found lots of great ideas (even diy sugar scrubs!), but ended up making the Butterscotch Pecan Cookie Mix in a Jar. A very easy gift that I'm sure grandma will enjoy :) Thanks Domino! You'll see more cookies, too, later this week...
While we're on the subject of gift ideas, I can share a neat centerpiece that's good for your own home or would make a great hostess gift!
Made in any size vase, you simply put Christmas tree clippings (real or fake) in the bottom (don't be afraid to pack them in), then top with fresh cranberries and then fill with water. Set a candle on top and you have a festive centerpiece during the holiday season! You can thank my mom for this one ;)
And, courtesy of my aunt, who got me a neat game, I've got some trivia that I'll try and include at the bottom of some posts. You won't win anything but knowledge :)
What thickener will actually thin under conditions of too much heat, vigorous stirring, or a too-long cooking time?
