  1. I love the cheese cracker recipe, but I would like to avoid the vegetable shortening…would you suggest an alternative?


  2. You bet – you can simply use 4 tablespoons of butter and avoid the shortening. The crackers will have more of a shortbread texture, but they’ll still taste fabulous. Or you can try a shortening brand like Spectrum, which is an organic shortening made from cold-pressed palm oil.

  3. I love your theme! Thank you for sharing its name!!
    Also, that hosting promotion is really awesome, 50 bucks down :O Are you happy with Dreamhost?

    ps. I also own a Nikon D40 SLR, I simply love it!

    • Hi, Hayley — thanks for your wonderful comments and I love your site, too. As far as your question about Dreamhost, other than one month when they seemed to be having a flurry of server issues, they’ve been great. Their prices can’t be beat, and overall I’ve been very happy. Thanks again!
      UPDATE: I switched hosting to Hostgator in 2014 after Dreamhost starting having numerous server troubles. I’ve been very happy with Hostgator.

  4. Ok I can’t believe this question is not already in the FAQ’s lol but did I read correctly that you are in your late 50’s?!?!?!?!
