Joel Said:I am a stay at home mom wanting to make my own candles. Anyone have any good oil recipes,or wholesale places?
We Answered:You can buy used candles for a good price at thrift stores, then melt them down to use the wax for your own candles.
Last week we tried dipping candles. It was fun and easy enough for the kids to do. All you do is dip a length of candlewick into a tall can of melted, colored wax and quickly pull it out of the can. Then you wait--that's the hard part. After a minute or two, when the wax looks dry you quickly dip it into the wax and immediately pull it out again. You repeat that until the candle is as fat as you want, changing colors to make stripes, if you want. That's all there is to it.
Maxine Said:CHILI OIL, recipes. please help!!!?
We Answered:I used to work in a chinese restaurant years back and it's simpler than using olive oil and such. Just take some dried chili flakes and add any vegetable, corn, canola or peanut oil to it. Stir it up and then let it sit. In a few days the oil will infuse with the chili flakes and you have your chili oil. If you don't have access to chili flakes, just ask the restaurant for some of pre-made chili oil, then as you run out of the oil, just add as you go. The oil infuses the chili flavor pretty quickly and lasts a good long while. As a matter of fact I have some right now that has lasted me well over a year!
Ron Said:What can you make with avocado oil? Recipes?
We Answered:This tasted GREAT -- try it
Pasta for two:
6 ounces (160 grams) of linguine
3 nice sized pieces of garlic - peel and diced
8 tablespoons of avocado oil
cayenne pepper or pepperoncino (2 tiny ones will do)
teaspoon of tiny salted capers (not the ones in brine or vinegar).
In a big pot put a gallon of water to boil. Dice up the garlic and put into you pan with the oil (capers and the pepperoncino optional). Flame high and turn off when the garlic starts to sizzle.
Turn the heat up again on the garlic and let sizzle and turn off.... all this to make the flavor come out of the garlic and also to not let it burn.
When the water starts a rolling boil add two table spoons of (cooking) rock salt, let come back to a boil and throw the pasta in.... wait some 30 seconds and give a stir to get all the pasta under water.
Make sure the garlic is cooked but DON'T BURN.
Take the pasta out with a slotted pasta fork (when it's at the consistency that you prefer) and put into a warmed bowl. The bowl sit on the plate which you may use for salad or fruit.
Spoon the garlic and oil over the pasta. If you haven't cooked the pepper in the oil (because your guest doesn't like it but you do then dust yours with some of the cayenne).
Wine - a chilled rosÃ¨ or while Sicilian.
