These RITZ Deep Fried Pickles are a great and easy appetizer to serve for a graduation party. Replace traditional breadcrumbs with crumbled RITZ crackers to add a buttery taste and crunchy texture! Mix mayonnaise and horseradish for a side of savory dipping sauce. Yum! You can also dip in your favorite barbecue sauce for a smoky flavor. Life's Rich.

"Cinnabon homemade coffee creamer." This recipe is groundbreaking. You'll never guess the secret ingredient for that "cinnabon" taste? Oh wait, yes you will. It's cinnamon and a metric ton of sugar. This is some Sandra Lee *&%^.

Concrete Leaf Bench

The Making of a Mosaic Bird Bath GOOD TUTORIAL


I would love to try this for making hands to use in the garden. I would shape them into a curve for either planters or bird baths.

These are easy to make.....get the round concrete forms used for foundations {they're cardboard like cylinders found in Home Depot etc. and come in different diameters} Sink this form in ground enough to ensure the 'stem' will not topple, fill w/ cement. Create 'top' by useing concrete and anything that mimics the shape of a mushrm. top. Adhere together using 'block adhesive'. Birbath top is just as easy, create well in a box with sand, trowel/ pour cement into 'form' let cure, adhere to stem.

What a neat bird bath! will look good hanging in a tree where I have my fairy garden. I' going to make more than one.
