sarahrae - made it before a workout tonight and it was great! with unsweetened soy milk, only 1 cup of frozen strawberries and a dash of agave the carb/sugar was fairly low. definitely a new favorite since we are also a diabetic non-dairy family, thanks so much for sharing!!!

for diabetics, any idea how may carbs are in a serving? this sounds great but i hate figuring out carb totals for new combo foods...

the oxo silicone one is phenomenal! bought it at target and it is by far the best one i've ever used for pancakes! i don't even grease the griddle and it lifts them with ease every time

i had a similar issue (wanted to put a small chandelier fixture in where there is a plug in compact florescent). even had an electrician out to see about rewiring the whole thing and he said it would be easier to just hang the fixture from some small hooks inside the can and leave the existing bulb. did it and it works great!

oh my god, i'm in love with the lights you have over the dining table! where did they come from and do you have photos of how they connect to the ceiling?

oh my god, i looked for these every where a couple of years ago when i had an apartment with a single shower stall...this would have saved me so much trouble and so many awkward positions as i attempted to shave!

i covered the seats of my dining chairs with regular weight cotton twill (fell in love with the fabric) and they've held up great so far...only been about 9 months though...

i've used lavender oil on a light bulb...just a drop...but works fantastically! maybe it's better with a natural scent than perfume.

i much prefer the thumb print ones http://www.akmelock.com/?gclid=CIH_8_HugpcCFQ89awodaksaZg or proximity locks with little electronic tags you swipe http://www.hidglobal.com/products/readers.php (had these at an old apartment and they were awesome!)

definitely paint them...love the high gloss white idea or a fun contrast color to brighten up the room (if you like that sort of thing). just make sure to sand at least enough to break the current finish, clean and primer! Kilz works great on real wood or veneer.
