1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My ode to bjork's swan dress on: November 02, 2008 03:17:27 PM
I have always admired Bjork, and love her crazy style. So this year I decided to go as her in the infamous swan dress... if only I'd had time to make the egg purse!



My swan is a bit more goofy but I like it that way  Cheesy
I made the swan head out of white tights, fake eyelashes and a beak from a kid's halloween mask. The dress was a 'roman goddess' costume from a shop. I also added ostrich feathers to the dress, and wore a crinoline to get some pouf.

Here is the original:

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Olive love Valentine's gift on: February 03, 2008 11:11:28 PM
I couldn't resist when I saw this pattern. I never understood why people knit food but there is something strangely appealing about it...

This is a present for my bf for valentines. I plan to add a cheesy 'olive you baby' tag to the jar.





It's available at http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/knitted_olive, which I first found out about at my fave bloog http://blog.craftzine.com/

8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Rice Cooker burns rice! on: April 13, 2007 11:07:01 AM
maybe this is rice-criledge for those who know more, but I've noticed that a bit of fat keeps everything from sticking. My bf and I got into the habit of putting nuts in with our rice in the cooker after living in Korea where that is a very yummy addition. Try it, it's awesome. also, nothing sticks or burns due to the bit of oil. Or you could put a tiny bit of butter in the cooker.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / how to store homemade stirfry sauce (and recipe suggestions)? on: April 13, 2007 09:28:14 AM
Am I the only one who finds storebought stirfry sauce expensive and gross?
But I have yet to come across a really good basic recipe that I can make quickly when I am hungry and tired. I was trying to think of some way I could store homemade sauce after making a big batch.. freezing? or canning? I know how to can but should I worry about acidity and all that stuff..

any suggestions?
