  1. Sorry for your loss. She sounds like a great person.
  2. This is a combination of different recipes. You should taste the apples before adding the sugar but I don't. Also, the spice combination is what we like. Feel free to mix it up!
  3. NO!! It's so much better than apple sauce. 😆 Actually, it is cooked more but you add sugar & spices to it. We use it on bagels, waffles, toast, pancakes, etc. A couple of my kids eat it like apple sauce.
  4. I've been doing mine in the crock pot. I found a recipe this year that uses the instant pot. If you want my recipe, let me know & I can type it up.
  5. Insane! Hugs and don't go over there. It won't make anything better.
  6. Our farmhouse sink came with a rack for inside so the dishes don't sit directly on the bottom.
  7. I got 66.7%. I said that I won't fly at all but would go to the theater. We've been eating out since the restaurants reopened. The questions about doing something even if you're scared were pretty vague. It really depends on what that "something" is.
  8. You should be able to use any of the InstantPot specific recipes for your stovetop cooker as well. https://www.pressurecookingtoday.com/ https://www.hippressurecooking.com/
  9. It's actually an offensive term used by the more militant childless by choice people. The ones who hate kids. I've known about it for decades now, so nothing new.
  10. I have this issue with the grands. I put stuff on there for suggestions for my dad to get my kids but my MIL will buy ALL THE THINGS! I have to do 3 separate lists: my mom & sister, my dad, and my MIL. I have to make sure to only mention to DH what I want his mom to get otherwise she gets ALL THE THINGS! My kids can't stand it. She overbuys for birthdays too but Christmas is the worst.
  11. It's cheaper to buy a hunk of meat to make into a quick meal than it is to get fast food for our family of 6. I use our pressure cooker for pasta, chicken, pork roasts, & beef chunks (we don't really like beef roasts). One of the best sites for inexpensive meals is Budget Bytes. She has some pressure cooker meals but not all of her recipes use it. I like that she breaks the recipe down into cost per serving. That really helped me convince my DH that buying more expensive (relatively speaking) ingredients is cheaper than eating out. The pressure cooker is basically a time saver, which for w
  12. My 18 yo got Samsung Galaxy Buds+ a couple of months ago. She paid about $120 for them. She said the sound is good, they stay in the ears well, and the battery life is great.
  13. Reminds me of the Arthur episode where Francine is trying to play the drums & sing at the same time. Look it up and show it to him.
  14. One of the real estate gurus that we follow has a couple of things he does to help sort this kind of person out beforehand. He does a surprise visit at their current address to see how it looks. He always calls their references. Once he does rent to someone, he has a pest control company come out monthly to spray and report back to him on what the place looks like. That way he can catch a problem before it gets out of control. Good luck! When I was a teen, my sister & I had to help clean up an apt. I spent the whole day with a wire brush cleaning the soap scum off the shower walls and my s
