"Hi, Janet! Yep, it's INTENSE. In a good way, I think—but for folks looking for the equivalent of yellow grocery store mustard, this isn't it. It's strong and spicy, more in a horseradish way than in a hot-hot way. Would be great…"

"Bill: These turned out really well. The only trick was that the dough isn't the most pliable ever, so rolling out each "snake" took a little time—and a little elbow grease. Yep, the dough rises for 30 minutes, but then it sits a…"

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for the welcome. The laundry detergent works great. It smells a lot more like traditional detergent than I thought it would. I used Fels Naptha. I think once I go through the 6 bars I bought, (I got them upstate. I haven't been able to find it in NYC.) I might try a Dr. Bronner's bar for a lighter scent. I've been putting lavender oil on the dryer balls and the clothes come out nearly wrinkle free and smelling great!

Thanks for the friendly welcome.  I've just tested out posting pictures using the "lookie what I grew" feature (nice!).  Is there a way to add embeds there?  If I had a YouTube video, for example -- it would stay on the YouTube site but be posted to your users.  Let me know.  Cheers,

Ah, nevermind... I just answered my own question -- you have a special section for posting videos or embedding videos.  Got it.  Thanks,
