Re: How to make a Moisturising Lotion

That's a pretty similar recipe to the one I use, and I found that to make the texture a bit nicer blitzing it with my old whiz stick was awesome! I don't use anywhere near as much beeswax though, gets really really thick if you do...I also use rosewater (the stuff you cook with ) instead of regular ...

Re: Gluten free pasta recipes?

Maybe if you just mix the flour & water into a decent stretchy dough & experiment! I've made rice noodley things like that before, & they were relatively successful! I don't know if I'd try and feed it through a pasta machine, but rolling it out flat & using a knife might be a goer... :flower: Good ...

I've visited quite a few that didn't really help me so much...as I said I'm a very remedial crochet student! I'd love to make a bl...

Re: Pregnant & Starving...but don't know what to eat!

Might get me on track...After finally getting into the groove of making a choice about what I'm going to eat, I've lost the enthusiasm again...still 6 weeks til my hubby comes back, I think being here by myself has started zapping me a bit...Right n...
