3  World's Best S'Mores in Dessert by MissingWillow on: March 18, 2015 01:06:43 PM
After being inspired at the Charleston Wine and Food Festival last weekend, I decided to offer homemade s'mores for dessert at a get together at our house.  They were so good I'm still dreaming about them! 

I had never made marshmallows before and found them to be incredibly easy to do.  I got to use the candy thermometer I haven't used in years and years and years.  I found a recipe on epicurious for bourbon vanilla bean marshmallows (heck yeah!).  Here's the link - http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/bourbon-vanilla-marshmallows-51151850

They sat overnight uncovered in a 9 by 9 inch pan.

The next day I turned it out onto a powedered sugar dusted surface and cut them into squares with an oiled and sugar-dusted sharp knife.

I offered milk and dark chocolate, traditional graham crackers and homemade chocolate chip cookies.  Nobody even tried the store bought marshmallows.  Everyone toasted their own over our fire pit in the back yard then assembled little stacks of deliciousness.  I will absolutely make these again!

6  Low Carb Peanut Butter Fluff in Dessert by MissingWillow on: February 14, 2015 07:25:35 AM
Here's a low carb treat that's sure to please.

I whipped a cup of heavy cream until it formed soft peaks.  In a separate bowl, I mixed together 8 ounces of cream cheese, 4 tsp. vanilla and 3/4 cup of peanut butter until smooth.  I then mixed the whipped cream a little at a time into the peanut butter mixture and set that aside.

I melted a Tbsp. of butter in the microwave then stirred in about a half cup of almond flour.  To that I added a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and just a pinch of stevia.  After that was stirred together, I sprinkled it onto a baking dish and put that in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes to dry it out a bit into a chocolate almond 'dust'.

A spoonful of that went into a parfait dish, then a big dollop of the peanut butter mixture.  I grated dark chocolate and sprinkled that on top. 

I think if you're not watching carbs, you could substitute sugar for the stevia and also add a bit of sugar or honey to the peanut butter mixture.  And stick a Hershey's Kiss right on top!

My turn!  I received these awesome curiosities from lindyv321.  Don't you just love these creepy baby curiosities?  They look like they want to live in spot #24...

A sea themed tin featuring a really cool skeletal mermaid.  Whatever could be inside???

A 3-D skeletal mermaid!  Very creepy cool.

And finally, the most amazing and creeptastic torso shrine.  The sewn together lips... *shudder*

Lindy, you're awesome, thank you again so much!

8  Down the Rabbit Hole Shrine in Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: February 12, 2015 11:02:33 AM
I made this Alice in Wonderland shrine for lindyv321.  She listed a few themes for me to work from and I was just completely enchanted with her 'down the rabbit hole' theme and the fact she said she'd love to receive a shrine.  Since I'm a complete sieve-brain, many thanks to her for the use of her photos as I totally forgot to take any!

Wall details include a mirror, birdcage, clock and paintings of all the creatures she'll eventually meet in Wonderland.  Bits and bobs include a tea cup and teapot, a pastry, chess pieces, a drink me potion and key.  There are red roses everywhere and Disney's Alice is falling.

I found an actual Alice in Wonderland font to use for the directional signs I placed down one side.  

To represent the area where the rabbit hole was found, I made the roof of the shrine into a garden of sorts, including a chipmunk.

I love those patronus ornaments and the wand(!)  Here's my wonderful package from our lovely organizer Mistress Jennie.

My very own silver doe shrine ornament.  I am so happy one of these came to my house!  She also included some holiday teas, a sparkly bookmark and the most amazing rosewood and calendula goats milk soap.  Thanks so much for organizing the swap and being my partner, Jennie!
