Hollyhock



   Hollyhock posted on Recipes  Just made my first batch of stone ground mustard. It was sooo easy. I used regular mustard seeds. I t turned out pretty hot so I didn't need the tsp of horseradish. I know my SIL and my grand son will love it. Next time I will try to find a source for the lighter mustard seed which is supposed to be milder.

   MeiDei  Waiting for you to share where you got your seed to grind & how you did it - mortar & pestle or electric grinder, salt, water or any other additive.... the works : )

   Hollyhock  I used just regular mustard seed that was purchased at the grocery store. There are three types of seeds - yellow, brown and black. I used a combination of water, white wine and white wine vinegar. After soaking and blending I ended up with a full pint.

This is where you can find the recipe.

This is one of those things I have been purchasing for years and didn't know I could make my own.

We have LOTS of favorites. We don't participate in Pinterest or any other social media. King Arthur Flour is a good one for baking.

   Escaped commieny  I probably shouldn't admit this, my favorite place is Publix Supermarket. I have some holiday special recipes from the family that I carry on, but for day to day cooking, blah. For me cooking is work, the DH is another story, when home he loves to cook, having both grandma's and his mom in the home, he was brought up with the cooking gene. I get to chop, slice, dice and KP duty.

   NotaBene  Hello MeiDei, I am OK, but many things happened, was busy, unfortunately lost my beloved 94-year old mother and now I have pneumonia. This has been a bad year. We lost 3 friends and my mother. Hope 2015 will be a better year.

   Gerty  Who knew that H.L. Mencken in 1920 would be a seer?

Woe is us!

   Hollyhock posted on Recipes  To reheat left over mashed potatoes use a double boiler. For some reason reheating them in a saucepan or microwave changes the flavor.

   Hollyhock posted on Health & Diet  Is anyone into using essential oils? I am not talking about "aroma therapy" but using them for treating common ailments. I am trying to educate myself and am trying them out. I am also learning about making soaps and lotions. Anyone else?

   Hollyhock posted on Crafts  There was a request for ideas for homemade gifts. I save ideas for later and sometimes the ideas get lost when I transfer them from my short term memory to my long term memory.

There is a paint technique using Sharpie markers and alcohol. Requires no artistic talent. Look up Sharpie and alcohol art for picture tutorials to see how easy it is. Finished items look like lovely watercolors. I am wanting to try it on dish towels or T shirts. Kids can do it.

   Surfhut  I saw a video a few months ago of a young woman who used a Sharpie to embellish her husband's car. It was beautiful!

   Hollyhock posted on Main Page The Lobby  I think this is pretty amazing about the DOJ and the media keeping silent. I hope I copied it correctly. Can be found on American Thinker.

   Gerty  You copied just fine, Hollyhock.

Reading it gives one the feeling we are not in the USA anymore. Corruption is rampant and a whole administration is out to hurt us.

What a mess!!

   MeiDei  This has been given to the 9th Circuit Courts; I don't feel reassured since historically they are over ruled 75% of the time. Perhaps this time a fair outcome will happen.
