I'm not in any form of culinary work, resturant owning, bake shop running, nor any of the numerous other occupations out there. I am, however, owner of a fairly large business concern, now retired. He's my take on your situation.   Although it would be nice to think that we've come farther along in our development as people, the fact remains we are judged by our appearance in every catagory of life, everyday. Opinons are formed in the first few seconds of meeting...
This just popped up on MSN. Found it very interesting. It also made me wishful that I could be that creative in the kitchen!   http://www.delish.com/entertaining-ideas/holidays/christmas/gingerbread-house-pictures-fw2010?GT1=47009
Any recipe that has the term "preheat the oven" drives me nuts.
Thank goodness for internet radio and/or YouTube!   I am sitting at my computer over here in Switzerland on a a very cold winter day. Even the snowmen (sorry...snowpersons for those politically correct individuals out there ) are asking to come inside to warm up. Anyway, have my iTunes program open on one of the Christmas radio programs and am doing a bit of work while listening, humming, and occasionally breaking (breaking is exactly what it sounds like) into song....
Came across some interesting recipes (at least to me) while looking up some info at the American Ancestors website. Thought maybe some of you would be interested. Sorry if I placed it in the wrong forum.   http://www.americanancestors.org/holiday-family-recipes/

That's the one lyniebeck! No matter what I typed in any of my search engines, nothing would come up. Thanks ever so much. You just made my Christmas!

I remember there were crispy Chinese noodles, peanut butter (or maybe it was peanut butter chips) in the recipe but don't remember any other ing. Anyone know what I'm talking about? :)
I think the thing I'd like to do most before I die is find a way to stay alive...
We're in the midst of the third day of snow fall but we still don't have as much snow as you have back home. But we are probably beating a few with the temperature. This morning when I checked the temp I had to rub my eyes and look again. It was -15°F. I've lived here for almost five years and have never had it that cold in the city. In the mountains? Sure. But not in the city! I wish I knew how to attach pictures to comments like oldschool1982 did. That's such a beautiful...
