1  I made up my own recipe! Tropical Strawberry Muffins in Recipes and Cooking Tips by KitKat84 on: June 03, 2013 06:04:12 PM
I've been trying to invent my own recipes. Normally I just follow cookbook recipes. I came up with this while trying to use up leftover things in my fridge, and I'm really proud of myself for inventing something that is not only edible but tasty! I practically ate them all in one sitting. They are a little bit sweet, I should warn you, but oh so delicious.

1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tsp rum extract
1 cup chopped strawberries


Preheat over to 400F. Fill a muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.

Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine the egg, coconut oil, pineapple juice, and rum extract. Make a well in the center of the large bowl and pour the liquid ingredients into the wet. Stir until just combined. Add the chopped strawberries, folding them into the batter.

Fill the cupcake liners about 3/4 full with the muffin batter. By now the oven should be ready. Put the tin in the oven for about 17-25 minutes. The muffins are ready with they are lightly browned on the top and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the center.

Allow to cool. Serve.

Oh yeah, I first posted this on my blog. I just want to mention that in case someone sees it there and wonders if I stole it or something!

2  Octopus Gel Candle! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by KitKat84 on: June 03, 2013 05:42:23 PM
I made this last week to give away as a gift and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I used a gluegun to secure the toy octopus to the inside of the jar before pouring in the gel wax. I made sure to put it as close to the bottom as possible, just in case the candle stops burning properly once it reaches the head which was too big and thick to keep away from the wick.

I burned it first to make sure it was working properly. This was the first gel candle that I'd made so I really hope that it works out okay! Even if it doesn't I think she'll appreciate the thought behind it. She thought it was really awesome when she saw it.

Thanks for looking Smiley
