Stabilizing Whipped Cream

does anyone else find that when they use "whip-it" that it can sometimes make the whipped cream seem....dry? i don't know how else to explain it but it is as though it is dry like over whipping egg whites. perhaps i am just over mixing my cream.

DIY or Buy? Urban Homesteaders Weigh the Costs

over the last 5 years i have been preserving my garden and farmer's market produce. i found the biggest cost for me was buying canning least in ontario it can be pretty expensive. every year i get better at it and have more and more jars in my reserves to use. one day it will be less expensive than buying but for now, i do it for love not for cost.

what would be on the menu in the wild wild west?

hi all! so i am having a dinner party and need your expert help!

the theme is "western" in the non-historically accurate sense - so any cliche goes! i am needing to plan a menu hopefully to reflect the cliched west. obviously there will be whiskey in the saloon...but that ain't food.

luckily i have a bunch of outgoing food friends so they are pretty much open to anything. if you were hosting a wild wild west dinner party, what would you like to see on the menu?

and if you feel so inclined, any decorating ideas?

have a great day
