Pepper nuts are a crunchy, sweet,peppery snack that you can't eat just one. They kind of look like Bellini's treats, but I promise they are for our pleasure only.
6 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1t baking powder
~mix the above ingredient's then add 1 1/2 cups of melted butter and 1 cup of cold water.
roll into snakes and freeze (they are easier to cut). Then cut(with scissors) into almond size shapes. Bake 350 until light brown. About 20-22 min. Cool on wire rack.
Hint~leave "snakes" in freezer until ready to cut.
CAUTION~~~ Pepper nuts are very time consuming but I promise they are sooooo worth it.
I dropped the Yarmulke off at my LYNS to be finished. As you can see, I changed some of the colors. You can do that you know.....
Have a great weekend!
PS...Are you wondering where we are going on this trip? TO BE CONTINUED :)

This is a belt I just finished. I took it to my local needlepoint shop, and they will send it away to the little people that do the finishing touches. In this case backed with leather and made into a belt.
I made this belt, below, for my husbands birthday in March.
On this particular belt I choose saddle brown leather and a brass buckle. The leather color options are plentiful.
It is always such a great day when you receive your belt back from the finisher.

I'm having the hardest time finishing the 2nd sock. Does this happen to you? I'm bound and determined to learn knitting on 2 circular needles. Is it hard? I really think it would be so much more fun, because the excitement is gone after I've seen the first one complete :(
The socks are knit out of Trekking XXL. (this colorway is no longer available.)
The bag is from Neiman Marcus. (free gift with purchase.) I don't shop there but my friend Jennifer does and she was sweet enough to pass it on to me.

one blender and lots of ice
1 4oz. can Minute Maid Limeade
2oz Grand Marnier
splash Triple Sec
Blend above ingredients. Serve in a salted rim glass with a wedge of lime.
Another favorite...Ina's Guacamole
4 ripe avocados
3T freshly squeezed lemon juice
8 dashes Tabasco sauce
1/2 Cup small-diced red onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1T kosher salt
1t freshly ground pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded, and small-diced
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the flesh out of their shell into a large bowl.
Immediately, add lemon juice, Tabasco, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper. (I make a couple hours ahead and chill.)
Serve with chips and salsa.
Happy Cinco De Mayo......(the 5th day in the 5th month.) Cheers!!!
