Re: Cranberry Sauce: how do you like it?

I make an old-school cranberry jello mold with crushed pineapple and walnuts. I learned it from an ex-boyfriend's mom. She gave me a lot of 70's recipes. Looks somewhat like the picture below I found online.

Do friends or family ask to try on your e-ring?

I have one family member and also one friend that always asks to try on my e-ring. I let them because I don't see them that often, and like to see what my ring looks like on other people's hands. Both of these lades keep it on for as long as 10 minutes, while the ooh and ah and pose with the ring on...

Re: murry is dying

So sorry to hear of Murray's health! I can commiserate....I had several pets growing up (while living with my parents) and also when I was single and moved out on my own. Each loss was so painful to me that I vowed never to have my kids go through it, hence, my kids have never had a dog or cat.....T...

Re: How much SHOULD this house cost?

Re: Time from acquiring a ring till the proposal?

1 hour! He actually proposed without a ring, and we went ring shopping the following weekend.

Re: Proposing with just a diamond

Maybe it's because I was proposed to in my early '30s, when most people have outgrown princess fantasies and are thinking in practical terms. The man proposed to me without a diamond or a ring. I said yes, and then we picked out the ring, together. I don't see anything wrong with that. Neither of u...

Pet Peeve: Tabloid e-ring guestimates

Does it drive you mad when a tabloid writer clearly doesn't know anything about diamonds? They throw out random numbers, gets the shape wrong, or the most frustrating thing is not know the difference between carats and karat.

Here is any example of Lauren Conrad's "3-carat honker".

Re: Post your 7 and 9 stone rings!

My 7-stone is 0.71 tcw, F-G stone is about 10 pt (all ideal cut). I got it from the Facets collection of Signed Pieces years ago. I like the 10 pointers because the band is substantial enough to wear on it's own.

My solitaire is 1.81 ct, and both rings are sized 5.5

Re: What is your favorite fish for eating?

I like fish with lots of fish oil, and has intense flavor.....mackerel, sardines, salmon etc. My hubby and kids like non-flavorful fish such as cod, halibut and tilapia. We end up eating tilapia the most due to low cost, and commonly found in standard American supermarkets.
