#04 Why Didn't You Think of That?

Hello people! I'm still on hiatus from shooting, but we have some great tips for you on the show this week, regardless.

Do you dislike the smell of smoke at a party? Most people just don't allow smoking in their homes anymore, but for those of you that do just put small vessels of white vinegar around. The vinegar soaks up the smoke smell. If you leave it out over night your upholstery will smell fresh in the morning!

Vinyl records are new collectors items, now that they're obsolete. Protect your investment from dust with a natural bristle paint brush. Just run the brush along the surface from the label to the edge while the disk is spinning. 

There are many more tips here on the site. Be sure and browse through them.

#03 Now, Why Didn't You Think of That?

Hello people, time for tips, tips, tips - well, tips, tips, anyway. This week on the show I'm talking about light bulbs and irons.  

Store your light bulbs in empty cardboard drink containers. They're handy and display what you have on hand so you know when to buy more. 

Make your clothing smell pretty by adding a few drops of your favorite perfume to the steam chamber of your iron. It will infuse the garments with your scent of choice! 
I'm cooking up a new season of podcasts which should go live sometime next month. Thanks for bearing with me while I take a little time off! 
Until next week...

02-14 Pancakes with a Pedigree

Hello people and welcome to another episode! This week on the show I'm demonstrating Dina Merrill's pancake recipe. It's simple and delicious. I'm sure you'll agree! 
You'll need: 

2 tablespoons of butter
1 1/2 cups Aunt Jemima's
    Complete Pancake Mix
3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 strawberries, cut up 

Heat your griddle to 375 degrees and melt the butter in it. Combine the mix and the juice in a bowl until all the large lumps are gone. Don't over mix, however. It can toughen the pancakes. Add the strawberries and blend well. Drop about a quarter cup of batter on the griddle and let cook until you see bubbles form on the top of the pancake. Flip and cook on the other side until you can lift the edge of the pancake with a spatula. Serve with maple syrup and fresh whole strawberries for garnish.
