If you're not doing it already, lock the top part of the mixer in place using the lock on the side; the lock the allows you to lift the top part of the mixer up. Okay, I have no idea how to explain it! I'm at a loss for words! But, that lock will keep it from rocking...

I am the same way! I have all three (cc number, expiration, cvv) memorized. It blows people away, but it's so simple for me. I just wish I was that good at things in life that really matter!


Do You Know Your Mother's Phone Number?

For some reason I remember numbers from childhood friends, and pretty much any new number (after I dial it a few times), yet I can't seem to remember what I was doing 30 minutes ago!
Any way, I've long been an advocate for memorizing phone numbers. I think it's just one more way to exercise our brains (I'm a geek, I know). A tip that works for me: I put contacts in my phone and make it a point to never use my contact list. I always dial the number, but if for some reason I forget it, it's there for me. After you've dialed it enough times, without even trying, most people will be surprised that they know the number by heart! So, even if you have a contact list, give it a shot! Try dialing a number every time you text or make a call; it's pretty amazing how quickly you'll retain the number.

Have you ever tried baking with Krema peanut butter? It's fantastic! It doesn't separate, no matter what I'm using it for. Ingredients? Just peanuts. The jar says they have a special way or roasting and grinding that prevents separation. Whatever it is, it works.

This sounds lovely! I assume this simple syrup will keep for a long period of time? How should it be stored?
