The Food in My Beard

the food in the beard design logo"The Food in My Beard"  That's right, besides having the most awesome title ever, this "food lovers" blog serves up tasty recipes from the bearded one himself, Dan Whelan.  Seriously, how do you not love a cooking site that has a "Stubble" section (where Whalen focuses on basic cooking skills and dishes)? Check out the recipe for Lasagna Timpano, where Whelan gives step-by-step directions for making a mouthwatering multi-layered, "multi-flavored" lasagna.

Do you find yourself sitting at the computer thinking, "You know what would be great, an interactive website where I can draw pictures and designs composed completely of iridescent flowers, or perhaps grow my own plasma tree in a matter of seconds." Well, wait no more.  Check out two fun websites fit for the whole family at FlowerPower and PlasmaTree, both courtesy of OpenRise.com, a Swiss website management company.

Broken Glass Candles

multicolor glass jar candlesI love these broken glass candles.  The creator used simple glass containers, broken windshield glass, clear votive holders, and color changing votive lights. I've noticed that LED lights are very popular now as well, I've seen them inside candles and other light fixtures that would traditionally hold a candle. These are perfect for my house since I have a young child and do not want to have to worry about accidents and visits from the fire department.  Now, since most of us probably don't have broken windshield glass laying around, I think glass marbles would be a great alternative for the glass filling.
