Recipe: Raspberry Chiffon Pie

This is Grandma Schroeder's recipe.

It was difficult to make because the recipe did not list all ingredients (at least not in the ingredient list) and the instructions were very
unclear about what got mixed together.

In fact, I left out the final layer because it seemed perfect as it was, without the raw egg whites and other ingredients.

Certainly this recipe needed work and I'm not positive I'll put it in the final cookbook.

Recipe from Grandma's collection

I made this Orange Toast. I remembered it just by name. My mom remembers making it for a 4-H project, but she said that it was indeed her mother's recipe. Basically, it's frosted toast! Pretty picture, though, right?

Learning more in Photo Shop

My 14-day Photoshop tutorial is over but I had some free time today (while the boy napped for 3 hours leaning on me!). I made this using an Asian kit free from Jessica Sprague. Hope it looks nice when I get the print from Shapfish!

Photoshop class

I'm taking a photoshop class. Here's the first project - I learned to add layers. Of course if I'd known it would say "sassy" I may have chosen a different photo!

One Dog Happy (Iowa Short Fiction Award) One Dog Happy by Molly McNett

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a GREAT book of short stories. It's not, as the cover might lead you to think, a book about dog stories. I found McNett's writing compelling, engaging, and sometimes heartbreaking. You can tell why she won the Iowa Short Fiction Award. Each story was different but each one really was "wow."
