Pallet Chair

Great video, I should make videos myself...

Sign Maker

No one told me when I was young that I could do this when I "Grew Up".

Hang on, this will blow your mind

If I don't make something like this, I officially fail as a quasi-inventor/designer.
I absolutely need to rethink this into fun gifts for friends and family.

Reclaimed Living

This is a wonderful cabin/small home built with reclaimed materials.
This is right up my alley. Well done, good use of interesting materials, not tacky.
I like the modern/recycled look. It doesn't look trashy.

Pinto Bean Pie

I made this recipe from Homesick Texan and it was great!

Pinto Bean Pie
1 1/2 cups of unseasoned cooked pinto beans (can use a one 15oz. can if you prefer)
1 cup of light brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon clove
A pinch of salt

1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a blender, cream the sugar, butter and eggs.

Add the beans, and blend until it’s thick and smooth.

Add the spices and vanilla.

Pour pie filling into an unbaked pie shell, and bake for one hour or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
