No worries CakeDiva!!!!!!! I certainly don't have an ego so big as to assume everyone knows who or "what" bakinccc is!! It did give me a chuckle though!!! icon_smile.gif

Bakinccc and Gemini - You are SO funny! Sweetdreams just PM'ed me a few days ago, asking where my avatar was. Was I perhaps waiting for the perfect trademark cookies? Get ready for this... I don't know how to do it! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Everytime I have tried, it tells me the image is too big and afte the gazillionth time, I just gave up! icon_lol.gif Sadly, I am technically challenged to resizing pics and haven't had the time to figure it out. I guess I will have to have my 13 year old do it as he surprised me and I now have a screen saver that has my cookies dancing in and out, left to right, fading, the whole bit. So I will have to set him to task on my avatar! thumbs_up.gif

As for the whole 'Forum Addict' moniker. I am mortified! Eek! I wish there was another name! icon_cry.gif Perhaps, "She Who Yaps Too Much". I even thought about not posting for a while in hopes that would cause it to go away, but I think it is not how often you do it, but your total number of yaps, I mean 'posts' that you have. "Addict', okay a bit true, but wish there was another name. icon_lol.gif Oh, boy, I wll get grief when DH sees this! icon_lol.gif Hey, at least my vice isn't shopping!

Tracy - It took me forever to get my avatar too because of the resizing issue. They someone here on cc told me about shrinkpictures.com. You can shrink your pics to avatar size on there. So.....problem solved...we expect to see an avatar by morning!!!!!!!!!

This is what I did, and NO one can be more computer illiterate than me! If you type in shrinkpictures.com and search, it will even display their avatar link. Great site!

Sure! I am just counting down the days until he can build me a website! icon_lol.gif As of this morning, all of my cookies are now in their own little folders labelled by theme and my e-mail banner is a cute pink. I need to put this kid to work! icon_lol.gif

That's a nice trick. I'll have to remember that when I can't find my bars.

I bought those bands to put on my rolling pin - love 'em!
I roll my cookies 1/4" (I know it's strange, but I DON'T like a thick cookie icon_rolleyes.gif )
I actually use two of the bands, one that's 1/4" thick and a second wrapped on top that is the thickness of the silpat that I use for rolling (I roll out on the silpat so that I can drag the dough off/on the baking sheet)

as for the avatar, I use photoshop a lot, I can give instructions on how to do it with that, just let me know!

i like the look *and* taste of thick cookies. just eliminate the baking powder (melissa's recipe, NFSC w/ no BP) to avoid spreading...you will never miss it.

Ops! icon_redface.gif I'll have to throw another vote of 1/4" as I doubled checked my thickness after reading Jen's posting as I use two rings as well and thought, hmm... I better remeasure. 1/4" it is!
