Homemade Date Candy

Homemade Candy, yum!

I just saw this recipe from LisaLise on the forum at Crunchy Betty and it looks like it would be pretty darn good!

Chocolate Date Candy
1. Pit a handful of medjool dates and roughly chop them.
2. Work cocoa powder into them until you have a mass that resembles dough. Wrapping it with wax paper before working the dough can prevent sticky fingers.
3. Break off bits of the "dough" and roll into balls.
4. Roll the balls in shredded coconut.

It sounds like it would taste pretty awesome, for those that can try it. I'm looking for dates I can eat, and chocolate and coconut are out for me, but it's just so awesome sounding I had to put this up, anyway!

No heat, easy hair curling method

This young lady has such a clever way to create curls overnight. It looks easy, cheap, and comfortable to sleep in, as well. I have a feeling my daughter may be checking this out, although she will probably like the decorations in the room as much as she likes the curling method!

Pseudo-pickled Veggies

When I have a heavier dish, like my potato pancakes or red meat, I really enjoy a little bright flavored 'something' to eat with it. If I have some homemade pickles, that works for me, but I often don't have any pickled veggies, so here's something that can be made quickly but still give a bit of a pickled taste to some veggies.
