1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I made up my own recipe! Tropical Strawberry Muffins 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.



Ingredients
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

Directions

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  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Octopus Gel Candle! 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
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Hemp wrapped stone necklaces! finally! on: June 03, 2013 05:31:35 PM
Beautiful. I love the use of natural stones in jewelry. I've tried making some with wire-wrapping and found it difficult. I wonder if hemp would be easier to use.

Those fish crack me up.  Cheesy I want a bunch of them even though I've no clue of what I would do with them.

That's awesome. Not sure that I'd have the patience to make my own goat cheese, but yours looks delicious.
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Homemade bagels on: June 03, 2013 05:00:40 PM
Yum. I've made my own bagels before. Sometimes I forget to sprinkle on the toppings until it is too late. That's okay they are still delicious, especially when used for sandwiches (I like to use jarred pickled eggplant and tomato with lettuce). They are sooo much better than the storebought kind!
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: APPLE CHIPS! *with tute!* on: June 03, 2013 04:52:53 PM
I love apple chips but they are so expensive to buy. I'm filing this away as an idea to try later. I'll come back and post on how they turned out after I've made some!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Dollar Store Pendant Light on: June 03, 2013 04:43:52 PM
I like this idea. I live in an apartment with no ceiling lights and I can't install anything, and I"ve been thinking of a way to hang something in the middle of the ceiling. I'll refer back to this post later to use as inspiration.
