1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Where to buy charm packs? on: January 06, 2014 12:38:46 AM
Hey guys!!! I want to make this chevron quilt for friend's bby shower. It says i need 42 5x5 squares  of each color. The person used moda bella solid charm packs.  I've been trying to google packs by other brands since i want girly colors and only moda shows up. is that a thing exclusive to this brand? the colors they have in their packs are blues, greys, and neutrals. I guess I could cut my own squares but i'm too lazy! lol can anyone suggest an online store where i would have luck? thanks! this is the link to the tutorial btw.

SunflowerSmiles - Hey! I don't know about beans but I think other nuts would definitely work. I think my friend actually used pecans so you could try that or even almonds, cashews, or brazil nuts Smiley
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Meatless Meatballs on: May 03, 2012 02:30:49 AM
I know this is probably old news to everyone but me. BUT maybe there's a poor lost soul out there living in the dark like I was. i have been a pescetarian for almost 8 years and this is the first time i have heard of making your own meatless meatballs! I had them today and ran home to google a recipe. I found one that sounded similar like the original recipe that the woman said to me and they turned out great. stupid simple and so delicious!!!



Here's the recipe the way I did it for anyone that's interested

MAKES 14
2 slices of wheat toast
1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup parmaesan
2/3 cup mozzarella
2 eggs
1.5 cups vegetable broth or water
salt, pepper, garlic powder
dried herbs to taste, I used rosemary, parsley, and basil

Put walnuts and toast in the processor until the are finely ground
Whisk eggs and cheese, add nut/bread mixture and seasonings.
Let firm up in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Spray pam on 8x8 oven safe dish
Make small 1-1.5 inch balls (i used a small ice cream scoop)
Place evenly spaced in dish and bake for 30 minutes.
Add broth and bake 30-35 min at 350 degrees and you're done!!!

Enjoy however you want them Smiley They are awesome plain or with sauce.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / use ALL the memes! pillow xmas gift on: December 28, 2011 01:02:50 AM
I have not posted on here in so long!!! I also realized I have been on craftster since I was a puny 15 year old and now i'm almost 23  Grin

so off topic but I thought that was really neat hehe. Anyway this is a pillow I made one of my best friends for christmas except I haven't given it to her yet. We're both obsessed with the website 9gag where they post these meme faces all the time but they've pretty much taken over the internet. It's just a 16x16 pillow. I was going to make it 12" and do 9 faces but when I started googling them I realized there are tons! it was so hard to pick! I did 3x3" squares and 1ish inch borders. the back is just grey.



I cut a bunch of 3.5" white squares and ironed on the faces





and the grand reveal... which looks just the same Wink


oh here are some of the runner ups I didn't use, but like i said there are tons more


Thanks for looking!
5  COOKING / Dessert / Re: 4th of july cake on: July 22, 2011 02:21:09 AM
thanks everyone! Cheesy

so i made three layers of blue cake. each layer was like a donut, 9" in diameter and had a 6" circle cut in the middle. i leveled it so they would be 3/4" high. then i made two red layers, again 9x3/4" and two smaller 6x3/4" circle.

then i just stacked them. the goal was to to have 4 red stripes and 3 frosting stripes but i somehow ended up having to add another frosting layer. i got the idea from similar cakes but instead of frosting, they added a white cake layer. that was too much cake for me that's why i used frosting instead of cake for the white Smiley

thanks again for the compliments!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / glittery heather headband on: July 15, 2011 09:55:12 PM
as rupaul says: hey squirrel friends! This headband was inspired by a group of drag queens on Rupaul's drag race. They called themselves Heather's [referencing the movie Heathers] and they were my favorite queens on the show. One of them is going to be in my city tomorrow for the pride parade and i'm going just to see her haha.

I made this head band in a pinch so i'd have something glittery and dragalicious to wear. I used glitter foam from the dollar tree and some cookie cutters. thankfully most of the letters have rotational or folding symmetry so i could stamp the wrong side of the foam, cut them out, and just flip them over. the only one i had to do on the glittery side was the R but it worked out fine. I glued them on to a piece of grosgrain ribbon and glued that to a plain black headband so i could take the letters off later.



thanks for looking Smiley
7  COOKING / Dessert / 4th of July Cake on: July 05, 2011 12:22:16 AM
Hey guys just wanted to share this cake for today.



It's boxed white cake with swiss meringue buttercream.

so i made three layers of blue cake. each layer was like a donut, 9" in diameter and had a 6" circle cut in the middle. i leveled it so they would be 3/4" high. then i made two red layers, again 9x3/4" and two smaller 6x3/4" circle.

then i just stacked them. the goal was to to have 4 red stripes and 3 frosting stripes but i somehow ended up having to add another frosting layer. i got the idea from similar cakes but instead of frosting, they added a white cake layer. that was too much cake for me that's why i used frosting instead of cake for the white Smiley

thanks again for the compliments!

the flavor was alright. I thought i would be clever and bake the cakes in a water bath to make them rise evenly and be more "moist". well, after 2 hours in the oven they were still jiggily. after about2.5 hrs i took them out. when i stuck a toothpick in, it came out dry, but the texture of the cake was super wet and it tasted not so pleasant. I made it on Friday and somehow by today it was not so bad. anyway thought i'd share my water bath woes to spare some unfortunate soul haha.

thanks for looking.

thanks everyone  Cheesy
9  COOKING / Dessert / Father's Day Cake on: June 19, 2011 12:39:16 PM
Hey everyone. I wanted to quickly share the cake I made for my dad.
I just want to preface by saying he's not an alcoholic haha. He just loves Heineken, it's his favorite beer. He is a simple guy so there aren't a ton of themes I can go with. I already made him a pink floyd cake for his bday last year so I thought this was perfect for father's day Smiley It is a lemon cake with berry cream cheese frosting. I'll upload another picture once we cut into it. Thanks for looking!

10  COOKING / Dessert / Salted Chocolate Nutella & Fluff Oreos on: June 10, 2011 03:13:11 AM
I came up with this fat idea and I could not get it out of my head. I was like how good would an Oreo be with Nutella and marshmallow fluff dipped in chocolate. Don't ask how I come up with such things because I don't even know!

I have the sweetest tooth out of anyone I know. Seriously, it's sickening, I could probably just eat straight tablespoons of sugar. With that being said, honestly one of these babies is enough. They call for a one cookie to one gallon of milk ratio. Even with the salt they are super sweet, so a little bit goes a long way.





Salted Chocolate Nutella & Fluff Oreos (that's a mouthful, no pun intended!)

    Oreos
    Nutella
    Marshmallow Creme/Fluff
    Semi sweet chocolate chips
    fleur de sel (optional)


-Split Oreos and scrape out the filling
-Using a piping bag and a round tip (I just used a Wilton coupler with no tip) pipe about a tablespoon of marshmallow creme onto one cookie
-Use a spatula to spread the other half with Nutella
-Sandwich cookies and freeze them for at least 10 minutes, you can freeze them solid if you'd like
-Melt chocolate chips and dip frozen cookies, sprinkle with fleur de sel while chocolate is still wet
-Freeze again until chocolate sets, ENJOY!
