1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / help me find this sweater pattern on: July 16, 2006 03:46:13 PM
So, i have found this great sweater online and i am really itching to get one. The unfortunate thing is, i do not have 120 dollars to spend on the beautiful, handmade one offered.

My compromise- i make it myself!

Now, i need to locate a similar pattern to this sweater (im sure they are around, it seems like a basic one)...or i could find a base sweater similar to this and just add a hood. I am hitting quite a bit of difficultly in locating one, so maybe you can help?

2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Frozen Vegan Orgasms (low fat, too!) on: June 18, 2006 11:23:01 AM
I live in massachusetts and the temperature is definately rising here; but that does not cease the intense chocolate cravings I get.

I am in the process of becoming fully vegan and I was looking for a good brownie recipe and i found this one. Suddenly, the sediment occurred to me that these can be frozen instead of baked (but understand my point of view, i make the brownies for the batter- the baked product is just an afterthought) because they lack eggs or other perishables. Plus, they are amazing on a hot day (and quite messy too). Oh, they can be baked too and be amazing (25 minutes at 350). The product, a tear inducing thing of vegan bliss as well as beauty...

Frozen Vegan Orgasm
1  cup unsweetened applesauce 
1/2  cup maple syrup
1  teaspoon vanilla 
3/4  cup unbleached white flour 
1/3  cup cocoa powder 
2  teaspoons baking powder 
1/2  teaspoon baking soda 
1/2  teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup barley sweetened chocolate chips (if you dare...)

Optional Raspberry Afterglow

around 3/4 of a cup of frozen raspberries
1 Tablespoon of maple syrup
1/2 cup of water or orange juice

-Preheat oven to 300-350 degrees

-Mix applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla in a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together.

-Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the applesauce mixture. Mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips, if you so desire to enter a new realm of richness.

- Bake for 2-3 minutes until a light layer of bake-ness forms around the edges

-Take out these browines and put them in the freezer for at least 3 hours

-(if you are making the afterglow) Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until sorbet-like consistency. Spread onto the frozen orgasms and freeze for another hour.

-Cut with a wet/warm knife into 9-16 squares

*Each square (for a nine square batch)- only 100 calories (110 with the afterglow) (without chocolate chips)!!! 4 calories from fat!!! 0.6 grams of fat!!! 1.9 grams of protein!!!*


All the more reasons to chocolate-fy your summer. I swear I had a full-on orgasm the first time i tried a bar.

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Candy Stripes Bag!!! (w/ STYLISH flap!) on: December 26, 2004 02:14:28 PM
hello all!!! i just got a digital camera for Christmas...so expect me to post x10000 more!!!

i am surprised that i am the first to post the completion of this amazing bag. it was very easy and i am uber content with the results.

why is there a flap?!
when i first saw this pattern...i was excited to see a bag pattern that didnt require a zipper...3/4 of the way done, i realized i was very wrong. being the belligerent person i am, i made a flap. how? just add 30-40 more rows with MC on the back pannel after you complete the given pattern and BO with C1.

in short. i am verrrryyyy happy.

back pannel...ignore the out of place yellow string



i hope this inspires!

peace and lots o' luv
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Henna/Mendhi Powder on: June 02, 2004 01:55:57 PM
i have a slight addiction to doing henna/medhi and i have been using Earth Henna kits ($18.00 a pop!!!) that comes with a bottle and a little booklet of designs....i have found recipes for henna paste and i think i will save sooo much money if i just bought the henna powder required for it.

now to my problem...
where would one find henna powder? i have checked Whole Foods and they only have the kits *frowns*. and how much is the powder
thank you so much!
