Some tips in time for those holiday woes in the kitchen...

Here is an example from the "Fact or Fiction" thread:

TRUE OR FALSE? You can keep baking soda and baking powder forever.

ANSWER: True and false. Baking soda will live to see your four-year-old get married. Baking powder has a shelf life of about a year. What is the difference? Both are leavening agents, but baking powder contains an acid that allows it to react in recipes as soon as it gets wet, giving off the carbon dioxide that makes a cake rise. Baking soda has no acid; it relies on acids in the batter to activate it. If baking powder gets wet or is stored in a humid environment, its potency is diminished. To find out if your baking powder is still good, put some in a glass of water. If it bubbles, bake away. If not, head to the store.

TRUE OR FALSE? Using shortening instead of butter produces fluffier cookies.

ANSWER: True. Butter has water in it, and water means a thinner dough, which means a flatter cookie. Shortening (Crisco is one brand) contains no water, so it produces a cookie that stands taller than one made with only butter. The trade-off is flavor, adding that even if a recipe calls for shortening alone, for more tasty results you can use half butter, half shortening.To make all-butter cookies fluffy is to beat the butter-and-sugar mixture longer (5 minutes instead of 2) to whip in more air.

Great recipes that are tried and true ( and gleefully eaten by many of our families and friends!) are also in many of the threads here. Just in time for the holiday season, too!

BookSellers Club-What's hot, what's not!

The club founder terri nc, started out as a bookseller on-line, then found I had other selling interests (glassware/pottery). However, her heart is still with selling books. Terri nc loves just to look at them on her shelves. Is that crazy or what? So, who are the hot sellers authors right now, deadwood, books to look for.....

There are a lot of good solid informational threads offered here , this is but 1 example:

How to Describe Your BOOKS Posted: Nov 21, 2004 12:21 PM

Here are the most common codes:

AN - As New. This is blindingly perfect. Almost never happens. Most books don't actually make it into a new bookstore in this condition.

F - Fine. Sorta normal perfect. No flaws of any kind. No, not even teeny ones.

NF - Near Fine. Well, ok, maybe real teeny flaws here. Like the gloss on the dust jacket is a bit off.

VG - Very Good. Pretty darned nice. Might have one or two very small flaws. A bit of rubbing on the jacket. Light shelfwear maybe. But nothing that would actually qualify as a major defect.

G - Good. A nice solid copy. This is what you would normally expect in a secondhand book. Might have a few defects, but certainly nothing missing, no severe problems.

Need to know what books sell well? Collectible? What to look for, or what authors? What everyone is reading this season?

Leather & Suede Storage & Care:

Basic tips for your leather goods.

1. Leather breaths, so allowing the leather to breath is what keeps it soft & supple so when storing your bag, keep it in its dust bag or use a pillow case. This will help protect it from dust & scratches when not in use. Always stuff your bags so it will retain its shape during storage. You can use tissue paper, old t-shirts, hand towels; anything that is 100% natural, like cotton and if possible, unhook all straps & locks when not in use to avoid indentations in the leather.

2. Never store leather in plastic bags or plastic bins, regardless if you use moisture repellents (not recommended, retains moisture & could leak & stain) or near moth balls (it can cause the canvas to crack prematurely) or potpourri/scent satchels (oils can leak through). This will also cause excessive drying & will attract mold & mildew, especially if you are in a warm humid climate. Humidity does great damage to leather in the form of peeling, cracking, & mildew. Try to store them in a cool, ventilated & dry place. Cedar chips, disks, etc. can be used for odor but never let them come into direct contact with the leather.

*NOTE* The above applies for your leather clothing as well. Never use those hanging plastic garment covers to store your leather clothing. Better to use the covers made out of cloth & if you don??????t have one on hand, just make one out of an old bed sheet & drape it over the hangers. It will protect them from dust & will not attract the mold & mildew that plastic will. Always use sturdy hangers to retain the shape of the clothing. If you use the pinch - clip type hanger for your skirts or pants, use with fabric to protect between the hanger & the garment like a bumper. If you don??????t it will leave a horrible dents in the leather & will take quite a while to iron out.
