I feel like late at night, at the time when I should be asleep, I come up with the most brilliant ideas. I am in college, trying to figure out how to hang things using the LEAST amount of push-pins and nails. This was probably the most brilliant think I've ever come up with! I was trying to glue a regular white plastic hanger onto the top of my mirror. My friend suggested I try to do that with a metal hanger so that it would stay better. (Super gluing plastic on cheaper plastic doesn't work so well- FYI.) Then I saw in my closet that I had a hanger with cheap little clamps on the bottom end. Like for hanging up jeans or something. It was PERFECT! I clipped it onto the top of my mirror and I only put ONE hold in the wall and wa-la! :)
Here is my finished project!
Genius. Who would have thought. Why pay $3.00 for a box of 5 or 6 bags of popcorn smothered in preservatives and butter, when you could buy your own pack of brown bags (50 for $1.00), and a large back of unpopped popcorn for about $2.25 and make 10 times more "bags" of microwave popcorn! Way healthier and cheaper! SUCCESS
A) I didn't want to be stuck mixing and melting sugar and stuff all afternoon in the kitchen, and B) "No-bake," sounds promising, right? :) I put it to the test to see how WELL it would taste! The recipe looked easy. So I ran to the store, bought a couple ingredients that I didn't have right off the bat, and began mixing away! 5 minutes later it was done! Holy Crap! That's too good to be true! Mine turned out just as good as the Pinterest picture:
But to be honest, I wasn't a fan. I tried about a quarter inch slice, and wasn't satisfied. I wanted a fudge that I would want to eat the whole pan of! I wanted it THAT GOOD. And it just wasn't that appetizing to me. In fact, I just didn't like it.. AT ALL. I will never make this again. It was too light and powdery tasting. But if you're into that, you'd love it!!! Oh well. Lesson learned!
I cooked the eggs in a muffin pan first, with a little bit of garlic. Then I crisped my English muffins up a tad bit and then started creating my sandwich. I put a cooked egg, 4 slices of ham, and a slice of cheese on a cut-open English muffin. Then I put them in the freezer so that they could be convenient! (I wrapped them in a napkin first, and then putt 6 of them in a Gallon sized Ziplock bag. My reasoning behind the napkin part, is so that the night before, when I put one in the fridge so that it would be thawed in the morning I could just put it straight into the microwave since it had a napkin wrapped around it, I wouldn't have to get out a plan and all that jazz.) Brilliant idea! But man, I didn't like the taste at all... I don't know how McDonald's does it, but I haven't tasted a breakfast sandwich as good as theirs in a while! Congrats McD's. You Win.
I keep finding a lot of pins about Coconut Oil and reading about how great it is for cooking, so I decided to put it to the test!
I cut up some zucchini, yellow squash, a medium onion, and some asparagus and cooked it in a pan with a tablespoon of Coconut Oil and let me tell you... It was DELICIOUS! It added a very slight sweet taste, but yet tasted very fresh and healthy! I will definitely try cooking with more Coconut Oil in the near future!
TEST #19 Graham Cracker Crust This was one of the most delicious crusts. Something about graham crackers, sugar, and butter makes my mouth water. I had to make more crust because I ate so much of it! I tasted it to make sure that it would make a yummy crust.. and then I tasted some more.. and then one more bite.. then one more bite.. then just ONE more bite... then a half a bite.. hahahaha. Then, I had to crush some more graham crackers because I didn't have enough to make the whole crust! OOPS!
