Prewetts Ground Flaxseed
Flax Seeds are truly a wonder food: they are rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, lignans (natural antioxidants) Omega 3 and other fatty acids (namely, Omega 6 and Omega 9) and can help lower cholesterol, aid digestion and provide both energy and vitality. It really is no wonder that those in the health know swear by them as an essential part of a healthy diet. It is fortunate then that flaxseed, or more specifically, ground flaxseed has a lovely, mellow and nutty flavour. It is subtle enough not to overpower anything it may be in, but adds a delicate, malty flavour to baking. It is worth noting that the flavour of flaxseed is much more subtle when eaten whole, and really only comes through when eaten in its ground form. The beauty of Prewetts Ground Flaxseed is both its instant results (no grinding necessary) and that it keeps incredibly well, lasting for up to six months if stored properly that is, away from direct light in a sealed container in a cool, dark space.
When kept dry, ground flax has a soft and powdery texture; the moment you add water, the flax becomes porous, absorbing any liquid around it and swelling to a gummy paste. If you were to use flax as simply something to sprinkle over your morning cereal, or to add to a smoothie, then there is little to note. But the reason I think so highly of the stuff is that it makes the most wonderful egg replacer in biscuits and baking. chocolate brownies, cookies, pecan pies, chocolate cakes or fruit slices etc. If a lighter egg replacement or binder is needed then I tend to use Orgran Egg Replacer.
I am very partial to using ground flaxseed as an egg replacer, partly as it is so good for you - adding nutritional content to your food - but also because it is an excellent binder for baking allergy-friendly puddings. What it may lack in powers, it makes up for in its ability to hold together other gluten and dairy-free ingredients. Proportions are key when using ground flax: my rule of thumb for baking with flax is to use 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed plus 1/8 of a teaspoon of gluten free baking powder, blended with 3 tablespoons of water for each egg that you want to replace. Mix the three things together, until you have a liquid paste and then leave for a moment or two. In that time the flax will suck up most of the moisture and become very thick and dense, it is now ready to use. Please note though, there are times when using flax as an egg replacement is not suitable and that, essentially, is in any savoury dish. Flax can only really be used in sweet baking as its texture is too dense for any other type of cooking.
100% Organic Ground Flaxseed
You can buy Prewetts Organic Ground Flaxseed in nearly all health food shops. It is also available from a number of online stores. You can find it at the following locations:

Giving a Wedding Speeches Toast That Rocks the Wedding
Being asked to give a toast at a wedding is certainly an honor, yet requires proper planning and rehearsal in order to deliver it just right. When planning your wedding speeches toast, be sure to take notes so that you can keep your thoughts in order. After all, everyone's eyes will be on you while you give the toast.
When starting off the wedding toast, make sure you introduce yourself to the crowd. Even at small weddings this is beneficial, as it allows people to connect with your speech when they know who are in the bride or groom's life. Then offer a brief acknowledgment to the hosts of the wedding. If it is not known who's sporting the bill for the wedding, offer gratitude to the bride and groom for inviting you and the guests to such a memorable event.
While the bride or groom is without a doubt a very important person to you, try to keep your wedding speeches toast less than five minutes. It may be tempting to reminisce about all the fun you two once had, but doing so will result in the guests becoming bored and sidetracked. Instead, highlight a few positive and memorable moments you and the bride or groom shared.
If a bit of humor is in your element, feel free to share some lighthearted jokes during the wedding toast. Otherwise, you can add quotations about love or marriage, or simply keep your toast your own. Whichever tone you choose to set for the wedding toast, make sure that it is positive and direct and refrains from rambling.
Now that you've successfully delivered one of the best wedding toasts ever, with a few chuckles in between, you must end the toast on a good note. Keep positive and wish the bride and groom well with their future life together. Ask all the wedding guests to join in a toast by lifting their glasses of wine or champagne.

jewelry display suggestions
There's a store in Chelsea that sells jewely, and they have a large branch with lots of twiggy parts in their front window with various necklaces, earrings and bracelets hanging on it. It's very pretty, and practical. You would just need to find something to fit your space.

Do you have space for a mannequin in your home? I once sublet an apartment with a decked-out mannequin in the living room, and I think it's a great way to show off a button collection. You can layer the arms with hair bands, too. Just stick a classy dress or big tee-shirt on her first -- naked mannequins can be creepy.
If that's too out-there, another good option is a pegboard -- you can paint it a nice color, hang it on the wall, and attach some S-hooks to hang things on. Architheque recently posted a semi-tutorial on making a pegboard for jewelry. You could also cover a bulletin board with contrasting felt to attach your buttons onto, if you have the time. I think all you'd need is a heavy-duty stapler for that.

It isn't very creative, but I love shallow baskets for display. I keep a couple on my dresser to hold hair bands and clips.
So overplayed, but or apothecary jars always look nice.

I have a corkboard which I've covered in awesome fabric and have nails sticking out of (get nails with some sort of coating or plastic covering so that they don't corrode your fixtures). The nails work well for hanging necklaces, bracelets, and other rounded things. I also have some crosshatched wire on part of it for hanging earrings and stuff - it also works well for hair clips and such. It is great because it doesn't take up any floor space and keeps all accessories at arms length.

You could get a hawthorn branch, clear away any leaves and such and use the long thorns as hangers. I suspect that several, banded together (or maybe woven) could have a pretty neat look.

You could try using a bunch of antique trays and filling them with sand or little pebbles. Or a mini-zen garden.

I recently bought some black velvet covered jewelry display racks from a seller on ebay. They are the kind that boutiques use to display jewelry. I've got my whole bakelite bracelet collection on this 3 rung display rack now and it looks amazing. I also have several wooden framed boxes lined with black velvet that I have jewelry arranged in them. I hang necklaces on a vintage 50s children's toy gun rack that has pegs sticking out of it. I saw this in a Martha Stewart magazine. It looks neat and keeps the earrings with their mates.

-- it's basically a grid of little pegs sticking up. Look for the wooden ones and you can store rings, bracelets, and necklaces on them.
posted by orangemiles at 7:09 PM on September 18, 2007
You could get an antique picture frame (the kind that has a base so it stands up on its own) remove the glass, cover the part where the picture goes with velvet, and use stright pins to hang necklaces and earrings and whatever else. Mine took about 5 minutes to make. A photo of mine is in my flickr stream here
