JACK DANIEL’S GRILLED PORK CHOPS RECIPE

VAV!/August 28, 2014/Contributed by Bobby of The Blog Chef It's time to fire up the grill again for these Jack Daniel's grilled pork chops. The pork chops are marinated in a Jack Daniel's sauce and then grilled to perfection. This recipe is perfect for summer cookouts. The marinade consists of ingredients such as Jack Daniel's whiskey, molasses, chili pepper paste and soy sauce. If you have a problem finding the chili pepper paste, a well-known brand is Gourmet Gardens and it can be commonly found in the refrigerators in the product section of Wal-Mart. For this recipe you can either use bone-in pork chops or boneless pork chops, either will work fine. If you use boneless pork chops you will only need about 2lbs. I like to reserve a little bit of the marinade before adding the pork chops to use for basting while they are on the grill. These go great served with onion rings or a cold salad. Enjoy.

 

How To Create A Fairy Garden

Pictured above:  Fairy Garden created by Ashcombes VAV!/August 25, 2014 It's time to create a magical, mystical, miniature fairy garden. Make it a place where Fairies can enjoy all the delightful moments in life, along with room to frolic in the meadow. First things first...fairies are nimble, pert, and small, so begin by thinking small. Next, you'll want to gather together a small container such as a box or basket, terrarium; an assortment of small plants that will please any fairy sensibility; and small ornaments and treasures to complete the fairies' playland. Arrange your amassed collection of plants and ornaments to form a natural landscape especially suited for fairies in mind. Remember that any fairy worthy of being called a fairy  always possesses a unique and extraordinary style!  So, let your imagination run rampant as you create walkways and secret nooks where fairies may nestle.

Doing It Right: Guardians of the Galaxy

   Pictured above:  Guardians of the Galaxy VAV!/August 23, 2014/Contributed by Stars in Her Eye Bringing superheroes to life is more than just getting the rights to vintage comic material and slapping it on ten big screens. Studios have had to walk the tight rope between tacky and tasteful when bringing superheroes to life. Movie and TV adaptions run the gambit from campy (the Adam West Batman) to thrilling (X-Men) to just plain sucky (the poor Hulk movies). Studios find success often with typical characters that have become mainstream (Batman, Superman), while also bringing lesser known characters into the everyday media fold (Iron Man). The latest trend? Ensemble movies.

 

Kotex - The First Successful Feminine Hygiene Product

Pictured above: Ad from Ladies' Home Journal 1940 via Duke Library/http://library.duke.edu/ VAV!/August 27, 2013 Hallelujah and HELLO!The first Kotex feminine hygiene products were made of celucotton, a material originally developed by Kimberly-Clark Corporation and used for surgical bandages during the First World War. Army nurses repurposed the ultra-absorbent bandages as menstrual pads and a  product was born!  Kimberly Clark then created the Cellucotton Products Company and launched Kotex  (K)Otton-like (TEX)ture! The initial  Kotex ads ran in 1921 in the Ladies' Home Journal and the Good Housekeeping magazine.  Readers of the Ladie's Home Journal were encouraged to call upon a Kimberly-Clark staff nurse, Ellen J. Buckland (also a brand ambassador), for advice and comments on the product.
