Did You Know You Can Make Your Own Brown Sugar?

Did you know you can make your own brown sugar? Since I have been working full time, I don't do as much baking as I used to. So tonight when I wanted to make cookies, I found I was out of brown sugar. Thinking there is no real substitute I Googled it anyway. And I was happily surprised to find that brown sugar is nothing but white sugar and molasses. I was even more happy that I had some molasses on hand!(It's been a long time, but I do like to make gingerbread.) So I poured a cup of white sugar into a bowl with 1 1/2 Tablespoons of molasses and stirred together with a fork. This make a nice, soft brown sugar that worked perfectly in my cookies!

Did You Know You Can Buy Safety Equipment Online?

Did you know you can buy safety equipment online? I like to do most of my shopping online whenever I can. I just came across supply line direct for safety equipment. It never occurred to me that you can buy safety equipment online, but they have everything to cover and protect you from head to toe: head and face protection, eye protection, clothing, gloves, safety vests and boots.

Did You Know How to Find Comfortable Pillows?

Did you know how to find comfortable pillows? A good night's sleep is important. And part of that means having a nice comfortable pillow. Even my 3 year old goddaughter woke up crying about her neck hurting the other night! If even a toddler knows it's important to have the right pillow, I think it's safe to say that it's important to find neck pillow specials! I found that you can order all kinds of different pillows online. There are the neck pillows and the travel pillows I expected but they even have contoured pillows and face pillows for those who sleep on their stomachs! Take a look today and start getting a better night's rest!
