Twinkies may be no more....But now you can make them yourself!

Twinkie Cupcakes. And aside from all that crisco in the filling I might actually enjoy one of these every once in a while

Does anyone use Soap Nuts?

I am getting some in my Christmas stocking ...and was wondering if anyone here uses them. I love anything that is new and unusual and with this being an alternative to harsh detergents I was just excited to try them.. But do they really work?

I figured I'd use them on the sheets first because they don't get really "dirty". Reading the web site it also gives you a recipe for making a liquid which can be used for household cleaning as well.

There are a number of companies selling these soap nuts now. I bought from http://www.laundrytree.com/about-soapnuts.html only because I was Christmas shopping and had a link. You can also get them on Amazon or from a number of other providers though google.

Does anyone use Soap Nuts?

I got my order today. They are going in my Christmas Stocking so I won't be using them until December. I'm wondering if anyone here has tried them and what your experience has been. My plan is to use them first on the sheets because they really don't get dirty. Do you think they work?

There are quite a few companies that are selling them. I bought from these guys...I haven't tried them so it's not an endorsement. You can google around for them or get them off Amazon too

Oooooh...Lookie what's coming--- Chefsteps.com

This new site gives free video lessons in "Modern" and traditional Cuisine It's being started by Chris Young who is one of the authors of that 650 dollar cookbook Modernist Cuisine that the foodie world is swooning over. So far the preview seems pretty but bare bones. There are no real courses up yet but for someone like me who loves all this kind of stuff I'm looking forward to what's to come. And best yet I won't have to fork over $650 for a cookbook....Not that I would do that anyway...even if I could afford it.
