Make Your Own Watermelon Keg :)

What you need from the hardware store:

Hose Bibb, Quarter Turn (that’s the tap) 

-Faucet Lock Nuts (those black circles) 

-Brass Pipe Nipple 1/2” (the piece with threads on both ends) 

-Coupling 1/2” (what looks like a hex nut) 

-drill bit (optional) 

Cut off the top and scoop out the middle.  Punch a hole using a drill (or a corkscrew, paring knife, etc…).   Gently screw the faucet into the hole (not as easy as it sounds, but doable).

Assemble the faucet on both sides of the watermelon.  Before you screw on the tap: Put a small piece of plastic wrap over the coupling, it’ll help prevent leaks.

Easy way to cut up some Glass Bottles!

1. Wrap the cotton yarn around your bottle 5-6 times, tie and cut ends. You can also braid three pieces together and tie that around the bottle. I actually had better results using the braided yarn.

2. Slide yarn off of the bottle.
3. Dip yarn in nail polish remover. I filled a bowl with nail polish remover and let the yarn sit in it for a few seconds to make sure it was fully saturated.
4. Slide the wet yarn back onto the bottle. NOTE: The bottle will be cut wherever you place the yarn, so make sure it is as straight as possible.
5. Holding the bottle sideways from the mouth, light the yarn on fire.  ****Please please be careful!**** Only the wet yarn will be lit on fire and the flame is very well controlled.
6. Rotate the bottle in circles as the yarn is on fire for 20-30 seconds so that all parts of the bottle warm evenly.
7. Holding each end of the bottle, submerge in cold water and watch the bottle parts separate.
8. Use sand paper to smooth rough edges

Easy way to store a 12 pack… 6 packs at a time!

Easier to store the 12 pack… 6 packs at a time ;)

I know a lot of folks have seen the “Bacon Cups” around the internet.  Now most of the pictures you see involve a King Muffin Pan and 4 strips of bacon.  However, most of us have regular sized Muffin Tins. - So here’s a brief tutorial on making the regular pan and 2 bacon strips :)

1. Cut your bacon strips in half, lengthwise, and “width” wise - not sure what the term is for that lol.

2. Flip your muffin pan upside down cover with foil and mist with cooking spray - make sure your pan has a lip so it can catch the grease.

3. Cross the two “width” strips over the cups.

4. Lift the BOTTOM strips edges over the top.

5. With the bottom edges still up - Wrap one of the “length” strips around  the cup.

6. Bring the edges back down over the cup, and wrap the OTHER “length” strip around the cup.

 7. Bake at 425 for at least 12 minutes (depending on how crispy you like)

8.  Let them cool completely so they can crisp up a little.  If you move them while they’re hot, they’ll kind of “limp apart”.

- if any of them don’t come out perfect, don’t worry… no such thing as “failing” this project - they still can be flattened and put on your sandwiches :)
