      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Recipes to Remember

Recommended Posts

Kourtney's mom recently posted her daughter's recipe for Buttermilk Pie - and shared that since Kourtney always made this pie for her daddy....he was going to make the pie in memory of her this Thanksgiving.  Tears, then smiles, then laughs came as test tasters soon realized that her dad  had left out the sugar!  I'm including this story and their recipe to kick off a new forum topic just in time for the holidays.  Please share your recipes and memories here.

Here is one of my favorite recipes and it's so easy to make. My grandma use to always make it and now my 4 year old could probably eat the whole thing by himself.

Chocolate Eclair Cake

need:

1 box of graham crackers

1 8oz tub of cool whip

2 boxes of vanilla pudding mix (the small boxes)

2 cups of milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar

3 tb coffee

3 tb of melted butter or margarine

3 tb cocoa

Mix together the milk and pudding mix then add the cool whip

Line a 9 X 13 pan with graham crackers and put half of the mixture over the graham crackers, then put another layer of graham crackers and put the other half of the mixture over that, then top with another layer of graham crackers.

For the icing:

Mix the powdered sugar, cocoa, vanilla, melted butter, coffee together. Then pour over the graham crackers. The icing will be thin and runny but will thicken.

Refrigerate for 24 hours then enjoy!

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields

- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.

- Facebook and Twitter Integration

- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"

- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.

- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board

- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it.

- Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible.

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other.

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.

Mums pasta

 

Cook any type of pasta you like, including spaghetti. 

 

Chop up fresh tomatoes, cook them in a frying pan with some herbs, onion and garlic, (optional). 

 

Add tomatoes to the pasta and add very liberal amounts of strong cheddar cheese, mix in. 

 

Place in a backing dish and cover in cheese and melt in the over for a cheesy topping.
