Doughdrums - I have a bread maker that I have never used at home and am having some marginal results with the flour down here. The recipes call for bread flour which I can't find. Any recommendations? Thanks. - Ashley, ashley.self (-at-)
Cucaracha Cookies - Cockroaches have been thriving in the heat. Here's a tip from The Baja Survivor's Guide to help eliminate them:

To get rid of cockroaches, make Cucaracha Cookies. While these are non-toxic to humans and pets, the insoluble spicules of boric acid destroy the insects' intestinal tracts. Combine 2  cup of borax powder with 1/4 cup of flour.  Moisten with enough sweetened condensed milk to make balls.  Food coloring appropriate to the season is optional!  (Thanks to Jane Coursin)
