    Coconut Flakes

    If you toast them, you'll have to do it lightly if you don't want them to brown. I use the sweetened ones when I decorate with them. I use them as is. Looks great on top of a white cake. The last one I made like that was solid white through and through, except for a fanned strawberry on top...

    Recipes for Halloween cookies?

    Well, if you want to make more than one variety, I had found another one that looks cute and simple. Spiderific chocolate chips: Hope you and the kiddos have lots of fun with your Halloween cookies. :)

    weird pan size??? 13"x 7"

    I would try looking at a restaurant or bakery supply store (or one online) if you hope to find the exact pan. I don't think it's something you'll find where typical sizes are sold. Here is a nice pan size conversion chart as well: Good luck!

    How to fix too soft brownies

    I like ooey gooey brownies, but these were just too mushy in the middle. I tried baking them longer, but it didn't help much. I'm thinking I must have measured the ingredients wrong. Is there a way to salvage something like this or no? Have you ever made your brownies too soft? I didn't even...

    Leek and Mushroom Quiche or Tart

    No problem. You like what you like. :) I'm sure you could make this using just the mushroom or adding other things that you enjoy. You could probably even add some meat, if desired. I don't see why not. Mushroom empanada? Sounds good to me.

    Triple Chocolate Eclairs

    Well, that's another good reason to make mini ones. Little ones can't hurt...much. Right? :) I mean, I heard there were health benefits to chocolate, so a little must be okay?

    Carrot, Apple & Cinnamon bread!

    Oh, this is cool. I'm always looking for more ways to get my kiddo to eat more fruits and especially veggies. This will work nicely. Thanks for sharing. I'm pretty sure everyone around here would like this. I'll just call it "spice bread" (like spice cake) and they'll probably have it gone in...

    Sugar, Sugar, Sugar, and More Sugar.

    There was a room mother when my kids were in school that made the very best sugar cookies. They were topped with homemade frosting, and they were so good. I tried to get her recipe, but she wouldn't share. I don't really blame her. She could win awards with those cookies. The ones pictured...

    Cashew cookies

    Yum,, that sounded so good, I went in search of a recipe. I think this one might work: It has a picture of the finished cookies too. It's from Land O Lakes, so it's real butter... that means it has to be good right? With...

    Make your own Sweetened Condensed Milk

    It's for everyone, but she came to mind first she uses a lot of it. :) I think it would come in handy for people who do a lot of holiday baking (or even make their own candies, cakes, cookies, pies, and other goodies throughout the year). Am I making you hungry yet? :p

    Make your own cake mixes and more

    Is it that you don't regularly buy flour or is it hard to get or something? I know different things in different areas are sometimes a pain to get hold of. I live in a rural area, so there are some things that I cannot get easily as well. I can always get flour though, and it's even usually...

    Recipes for Halloween cookies?

    Ha, those are quite creepy, @Roxanne G. but they do sound tasty. For something super easy, you could do some decorated krispie treats, @Clair02. I also found these: They look really fun to make (and eat)...

    Triple Chocolate Eclairs

    Oh, now you've gone and done it. I saw triple chocolate and it was like I was on auto pilot.. right straight to this page. And, I was being so good avoiding the temptation of chocolate too! :p These look so good, but I bet they are also really rich. I think I would make mini ones. I think I...

    Are There Glitter Sprinkles? Or Am I Dreaming Here?

    That's okay. You can be sparkly along with your cake. Just wear a top that coordinates with your frosting. You want everything to match. See, you just created your own theme party. :)

    Make your own cake mixes and more

    I thought it was a cool idea. I think you should totally go for it. Anything with salted caramel and/or Expresso has to be good, if you ask me. I will probably be giving the fudge cake a try as well. We have birthdays coming up.

    Leek and Mushroom Quiche or Tart

    I'm all for whatever is easier to clean, ha ha. I hear ya on that. I just use a glass pie plate for quiche, but it tends to be my "go to" because it's a little deeper. My tart pan feels too small (though I realize it's the size it's supposed to be). When I make quiche, I consider it more of an...

    Make your own cake mixes and more

    Instead of buying a box of cake mix, what if you could make your own? You can. You can also make up your own mixes for pancakes, cookies, and more. You can adapt recipes to control what goes into your finished products. How handy is this and a money saver to boot...

    Are There Glitter Sprinkles? Or Am I Dreaming Here?

    Check this out: You can buy some edible glitter and sparkly sprinkles, but you can also make your own "disco dust," as they called it on this site. There is a video tutorial there for making your own. Looks like some fun stuff.

    Pumpkin (and Squash) Recipes from Martha Stewart

    The bruleed one sounds so good. I don't happen to have a kitchen blow torch though. I don't think my husband will let me borrow his for baking. It will be fun to see his expression when I ask though, ha ha. The pumpkin muffins sound quite tasty as well. I'm not really into the pumpkin stuff...

    Leek and Mushroom Quiche or Tart

    The recipe calls it a tart, but to me it could also be considered a quiche (I tend to think of most "egg pie" type things as quiche, so don't necessarily listen to me... I don't know the strict definition, I just go with what sticks). Anyway, it sounds good to me,, and I can think of lots of...
