Happy Halloween!

Here are 5 tips in categories to use for your halloween fun!

Games to Play With Candy:

1. Trading candy for candy
2. See how much candy you can shove into your mouth with yours friends in 1 minute
3. Open your widow and when somebody come to trick or treat throw candy at them
4. If you have too much, go outside and throw all your candy on the pavement see how long it is until everything is gone.
5. Hide your candy around the house, whenever you have an emergency suger-low you can immediately cure yourself before you die from LOC (lack of candy)

Tips for decorations

1. Be creative. I have a head on a chopping board next to a saw with a rat on top.
2. Red eyes and bats go perfectly.
3. Put decorations on assortments of levels. Hang them, put them on tables, have them scrambling on the floor etc.
4. Put things on your widow.
5. Be gory. Be disgusting. Sure kids might start screaming and have nightmares for the rest of there lives and need to go to counseling. You know what Sue says (glee) halloween IS fear! Mwah ha ha!

Halloween Party tips

1. Go old-school. Bobbing for apples is great fun
2. Put on creepy halloween techno music, it will get people away from the normal idiotic pop music.
3. Serve food in the shape of body parts.
4. Get cool napkins!
5. Wear really cool costumes

Getting into the spirt tips

1. Decorate your house. Mega. Make it the house of horror.
2. Watch Rocky Horror Picture Show!!
3. Sit down. Make it pitch black. Get a flashlight. Start telling ghost stories. The best are ones about ice cream trucks, masks, turning people into stone, axes, swinging in a playground alone, clowns and barbies.
4. Start screaming.
5. Scare people. Get yourself scared. Trust me. It feels great!

I hope this helped make your halloween spectacular!

Lime Jelly!

This is a recipe for gelatin-free lime jelly. To be perfectly honest it was supposed to come out fruit jellies but I made a few critical mistakes in the process. It ended up great, though! Just not what I expected.

I'm going to put down the recipe I tried to use, but also add in my mistakes so you can either make fruit jellies or fruit jelly. Oddly this recipe for Lime Jellies involves more applesauce then lime juice, but it still tastes quite limey!

2 1/2 cups of sugar
the juice of 4 limes
the zest of 2 limes
1 1/2 cups applesauce (it's important the applesauce you use is unsweetened.)
for jellies 2 teaspoons powdered pectin, for the jelly 4 teaspoons liquid pectin.

Now this is the voice of experience talking: Don't use the wrong pectin!!! It can seriously affect your food if you do. The hard thing is most grocery stores only sell one kind. If this is so, then DO go to the trouble of finding the right kind. And if you end up buying the wrong thing, DON'T use some stupid "pectin conversion chart" from the internet like I did. Again, voice of experience.

The rest is fairly simple, however you do need a candy thermometer. If you are like me and really enjoy cooking and candy one of these is a good investment. It's somewhat critical to the making of ALL candies.

First is simple, combine the applesauce and lime juice in a medium deep saucepan. Now in a small bowl combine 1/2 a cup of sugar and the pectin, whatever kind. Now clip on the candy thermometer and mix them together until they reach 225 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don't have one of these dealies then wait until it boils. Keep mixing! While doing so add the remaining sugar (2 cups,) and then add the lime zest. Now pour into a buttered 8x8" brownie pan and let sit for a minimum of 2 hours. (NOTE: 8x8" is what I used. But be prepared for it to come out about an inch thick.) Once solid, sprinkle A LOT of sugar on top. If you're making jelly, you're done by now! If it's the candy jellies you seek, slice it into squares, dredge in sugar, and leave on a cooling rack overnight. :(


Here comes the sun

I know it isn't spring, but I want to remind everyone, that though it it getting colder there is still a little hope of summer still here.



The black and white cover of Camilla won! YAY!


I have just recently discovered the wonderful world of GLEE! I love it sooooooooooooooooooo much, I have watched (so far) all of the season two episodes and eight of the season one. I started watching the ones that came out, but then wanted to catch up, so I bought the season two set and am working my way through all the episodes (yesterday I watched four and 1/2 glee episodes)! I am completely obsessed... I love Puck, Will, Finn, Quinn, Mercedes and, Kurt, Tina, Rachel, Sue, Emma and Arty. So basically I love all the characters. Do you like glee?

More Photos!


Hey! I just went to county fair, (a giant fair at my school) and it was so fun! I got face paint, sang in front of the whole school, won a cake on (musical squares with cake) sold trivia questions, pet rabbits, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens and goats, bought a t-shirt, donated to a charity, won candy, jumped over walls, bought a cookie and did many more marvelous and spectacular things.
I had so much fun!
