Honestly, I'd love to feed ME on $2 a day! We spend far too much on dining out. Having picky people in your household doesn't help either. But you gotta do, what you gotta do. I give a lot of props to this woman for making sure her children had full tummies. I remember having powdered milk when my parents could not afford to buy groceries. It sucks but we were fed!

How is the most important children's book not listed or mentioned? "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein is so gorgeous. The selflessness of giving out of love - there is no better lesson.

And "Quick as a Cricket" - LOVED that book!

Totally agree with @discerning.
Cake pops while cute taste terrible. They are too sweet and wet-ish. Love the idea of donut holes! I don't even need the icing. Let's toss the overhyped pops and just eat the delicious donut holes!

I really don't see what the fascination is with Pumpkin Spice. I happen to not like it at all. It might be worth a try in a latte, but a word of advice, do NOT put it in scrambled eggs. I had a guy do that for me once. GROSS.

I think it's very interesting how we have become such a paranoid society and wonder if it is our overly cautious attitude towards disease that have actually made us sick. My mom like so many here, used to, and still does, make soup that she leaves out over night or even a few days. Each time we wanted to eat, we would reheat the soup. No, just because we did not get sick does not mean it was good for us, but does not mean it was harmful either.

@akay, thank you very much for your insight. That is great information for those of us unfamiliar with dealing with cancer in a direct way. Much appreciated and am holding good thoughts.

Cleaning EVERY DAY? No thanks. I'll take my one hour on the weekend while the coffee is brewing or something. Sorry but if you are not eating off of it, it doesnt need to be spotless.

I think you missed a step.

The recipe went from the rising for one hour, to cutting and rolling in balls, then butter and cinnamon/sugar, then baking.

When does the caramel get added? The recipe says "when the top is golden brown or the caramel is bubbling" - so when was the caramel added.

I think its nice that we can say what we wish others would do at the table... but take a moment to think about what YOU do.

@Trish1980 - dont you think that is a little rude in itself? To think of a topic that EVERYONE will enjoy? Its a party! Let people talk and enjoy! That's actually one of my pet peeves - my "MIL" can't stand not being part of every conversation at the table, so then she ends up being the only one talking! How lame is that?! seriously - if the men want to talk sports or business go ahead! If the women want to talk politics and hair care fine! Why do we have to find ONE topic? Then you have less people enjoying themselves because not everyone likes the same things. And then people might feel left out because they don't know enough about the topic to feel involved.

Also - I happen to not enjoy being served my food. I may not like everything and having to give my order to the host seems rude. I'd rather pick and choose what I want to try and how much. Which leads to another point, as a host, dont keep food for left overs until everyone is done eating! If you made enough for everyone, serve it! How uncomfortable it is for not only your guests who now have to ask for seconds, but then you as the host have to leave the table. Why must there be etiquette among family? its family! just enjoy the company sheesh!!

We literally wait ALL year for it to be cold enough in LA to drink hot cider. Some of us were just not meant for this much heat.

What is the trick here? do you use warmed sparkling cider or apple cider juice? or make apple cider and then add the tea?

@fegmelk - Agreed! Soy milk does not taste good in steamed form. I drink vanilla silk soy milk (we call it Smilk hehe!) in my hot coffee daily. The coffee is hot, fresh pressed, and the smilk straight out of the fridge - no curdling. It does however, curdle as the beverage cools and everything becomes room temp. A good shake (if you have a travel mug) or stir of the coffee and the curdling goes away. I think the key is the chilled smilk and the immediate shaking.
