Make Something Everyday Six

Today we made:
 hooking angels
a giant woolly mess
our minds expand in new directions with embellishing rug loops and hooking quarter sized faces- it hurt  it hurt!
And I made these great recipes:

Ginger Brownies

350˚ F for 20 min.

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margerine.

Place in medium saucepan heat slowly until  smooth, don’t cook or boil, just let sugar melt.

Allow to cool
Add in 1 cup cut up ginger in syrup, ( available at the Bulk Barn )   crystalized ginger is not a good substitute.

Mix in 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla
Add 1 cup flour 1 tsp. baking powder, pinch of  salt

Place in ungreased 8x8 pan or mini muffin tins ( bake these for 15 min )

7 Layer Bars - Special Edition
If you don't know about this recipe you can go to this great version over on Little Cook from the Prairie.
I use a short bread crust but I add 1/4 cup of cornmeal.
1 small bag of coconut, larger cut
1 bag of white chocolate chips
1.5 cups of slivered of hand chopped almonds with skin on (not blanched ones)
1.5 cup of dried raspberries and cherries
Then just complete the recipe as called for.

I was going to try to do a tutorial once a week this December, I hope this passes for one.


  1. Oh so cute hair!! and are you wearing another of your own designed/sewed creations?? You are too clever, woman!

  2. Thank you for comments! My goodness I thought I might as well write this for the cats on the wall!!!
    My hair was good that day! No vestigial Paula Deen remains I think. Now I resemble Mika.

    Nessa came over and she said That's striking Mom! - me outfit she meant. Bless her heart she mustered the studio into shape in no time flat while she was here.
    I think I'll dress the fake Wanda in it and take a photo for the full effect so I can really show you the full business.
