Happy Holidays! :)

Hello everyone. Happy holidays! I'm KC and I live in the United States. I've done this at my journal before but never here. I don't think I realized it was here until this year. I'm 29, I work at a library and am currently attempting to finish my four-year degree.

001. Bookmarks, new or old. I don't care.

002. I would love if someone would send me a hand-me-down cookbook that you no longer use/want that has some good recipes. OR You could even just type up a couple of your favorite recipes and send them along. I'd love to try them! Bonus points for anything healthy (yet tasty) and anything I can make in a slow cooker. (Nothing spicy.)

003. A fanmix for any of my favorite characters/pairings. (A not-quite-definitive list of pairings can be found here.)

004. Fanfic for any of my favorite pairings.

005. Something you made! Whether it be foodie or crafty. Cookies, a scarf, any craft, a pretty photo you've taken, yummy treats or healthy ones, whatever!

006. Anything from my amazon wishlist. (Used items welcomed/encouraged!)

007. Small gift certificates are always nice. Any place would be great, livejournal, Amazon, or the classic Visa.

008. Again with the hand-me-downs. Anything you have at home that you don't want anymore that you think I'd like. An old board game, a cool trinket, something nifty looking.

009. A surprise!

010. Fulfill someone else's wish, donate to a charity, or volunteer over the holidays.

Comment, e-mail, or private message me for my address if you need it! :)

For really yummy slow cooker recipes, try the community what_a_crock. They were in the spotlight a few weeks ago which is where i heard about them :)

I'd love to make you a 6/33 fanmix or write a short fanfic. Right now I'm working on some stuff for the FNL Secret Santa, but if you don't mind waiting a while I'll totally think of something.
I so do and I would LOVE a fanmix for them if and when you could get it done. I will happily wait!

Thank you! :)
I have some songs in mind already and I've been meaning to make one for months now. This will be the right occasion to actually put it together. :)

(LOVE your icon!)
Just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about the fanmix. It's probably gonna be done by the end of the week. Sorry for making you wait do long.
Oh wow, really? That is awesome. No worries or rush at all! I can't believe you even remembered. What a treat!
Hello there! I have a recipe for you! It's called Christo's pan.

(four servings)
one pound potatoes, sliced
one can chopped tomatoes
one onion, chopped
three cloves of garlic, crushed or finely chopped
one tablespoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
four chicken fillets

Mix together everything except the chicken and sliced potatoes. Coat an ovenproof dish with either butter or oil and place all the ingredients in the dish with the chicken at the bottom and the potato slices at the top. Sprinkle generously with olive oil. Roast in oven at 175 degrees Celsius (347 degrees Fahrenheit) for 45-50 minutes.

Hope you like it. :D
Ohh that sounds really good. I've written it down on a recipe card and I'll try it soon! Thank you!
I'll can write you a fic. We share several fandoms, so if you could give me some idea of a few pairings you'd most like me to write about it, that would be helpful.

Also, let me know what you like/hate in a fic. :)
I have a pairing list here, would that help? Or do you want me to narrow it down?

I guess I'm not really a fan of anything way too fluffy or anything PWP/non-con/etc. I dig angst with a mixture of hopefulness the best. But anything would be great!
I can send you a couple handmade bookmarks. :) I'll email you for your address.
I just want to say thank you SO MUCH for those awesome bookmarks. They have already been put to good use! They seem fun to make, I may try them sometime.
You're welcome! :) I did have a lot of fun making them. At first it was a frustrating trial and error process but once I got going on them I didnt want to stop. lol
For a slow cooker if you like chicken you can easily make Salsa Chicken. It takes about 6-8 hours to cook. (depending on the chicken pieces and how many and stuff like that)

All you need is boneless, skinless chicken
2 jars of your fave salsa (any spice and type)

Start out with putting enough salsa in the slow cooker to fill the bottom. Once the bottom is covered add the chicken that you want.

Then cover the chicken with the rest of the salsa. No need to add water, the salsa will thin as it cooks.

Turn on high at first and wait until it starts to boil. Once it boils turn to low and cook for about 7 hours. You only need to stir a couple times- to make sure the chicken isn't sticking.

To test the chicken just pull out a piece and break open the thickest part, it should not be pink.

If as it cooks if you need more salsa to cover the chicken just add as needed.

When done pull the chicken out. The salsa you cooked in can be used as a dipping sauce for the chicken.
