After a fun-filled weekend with our son home from college, and after getting to bed late every night, on Sunday, when the house was so quiet, I pulled out my slow cooker.

There is no denying that I am a proud Harry Potter nerd. Honestly, Ten years or more of my life has been spent being involved in that story whether through the books or the movies so I thought I would make a tribute to the best building in the whole series: The Weasley Family home or more formally “The Burrows”.

I love it because it has an amazing DIY feel to it. Much like myself, they are on a close budget, they have to make do with things that are not perfect or they make it work somehow. Mrs. Weasley makes her family home knit sweaters for Christmas and they reuse books and clothing, just like me! In my mind that house is kept together with magic, duct tape and love. I am not an excellent cook, but I do like to bake. As I mentioned above, I did make this gingerbread house a year ago, and not knowing I would be entering it into this contest or onto instructables, I did not take the kind of photo documentation that the folks here at instructables are accustomed to.

Kbcox540September 21, 2014. - sweet road -: How to make 1 cupcake. Picking out a single dessert to indulge in (alone or with a friend!)

At a bakery almost has a romantic allure to it. Baking a batch of cupcakes or brownies at home often seems like a fun idea, but sitting alone in the kitchen with a half eaten pan of brownies and a stomach ache is not exactly my idea of a good time. Besides, desserts always taste better when you savor them, knowing that you only get one!

Famous last words, right? Now, if I was a crafting perfectionist, or blogging perfectionist, or if I’d had two more cups of coffee today, maybe I’d've tried a second time to make my vision work…but I’m not, I’m not, and I didn’t. So, instead, you get first dibs at seeing my next submission to Craft Fail, and hopefully a little inspiration to think quickly on your crafting feet before you completely scrap the next project that doesn’t turn out as it should. Supplies: candy canes- $1 for twelveold fashioned hard candies- $1starlight mints- $1 for a bag, I used just one for this particular project Unwrap the candy canes and starlight mint and arrange on a baking sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper.

Tablet's hard to describe if you haven't had a Scottish upbringing; it's like toffee, but not chewy, it's like fudge, but more grainy. It's basically a wee bit of heaven in an otherwise dreich country.

Warning Making tablet requires you to boil up a sugar-based mixture. Sugar boils at a much higher temperature than water, and any splashes stick to the skin and cause very painful burning. Do not attempt to make this if you are not confident with a large pan full of very hot liquid. The author of this web page can take no responsibility for your actions if you decide to follow these instructions. Now that's over, this is my variation on my Great-Aunt Celie's tablet. I guess you could call this recipe World Renowned. Ingredients 1kg white cane vanilla granulated sugar 1 tin (appx. 400g) sweetened condensed milk 100g unsalted butter fresh milk to damp sugar Notes on ingredients Sugar I prefer cane sugar, as beet sugar can make the tablet taste a bit like turnips.
