Holiday Family Favorites


Is your turkey drool worthy? Is your pumpkin pie the thing of dreams? What about your ham, is it something the pigs volunteer for? Does the smell of your Snickerdoodles make the neighbors come knocking? Do you have a dish that is something everyone talks about all year? That one special dish you only make during a holiday time? If you answered yes to any of these, then Craftster has just the challenge for you!

15  Painted Coil Bowl in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: November 09, 2015 02:02:36 PM
This is a new - to - me twist, on an old favorite. If you check the tag cloud for coil, you will see loads of bowls and other coiled creations. alwaysinmyroom taught a bunch of the mods how to make these addictive projects. Smiley

This one is created using the cotton clothes line and acrylic paints. The colors were just to try out the technique. You can also use inks, and dyes.

The paints cannot be too thick or the needle will break. More than once. Roll Eyes I thinned mine just with water, and that was good. You can also paint after the bowl has been created. Using stencils or whatever you can imagine.

I found the idea on this blog:

Thank you for looking.  Smiley

16  Zoodles, Sundried Tomatoes & Fish = Good in Recipes and Cooking Tips by HSG on: August 16, 2015 02:08:23 PM
Couldn't really come up with a better name for this recipe. Still tasty nonetheless Cheesy
Zoodle by Helen, on Flickr

4 zucchini zoodled
1 package of sundried tomatoes
1/2 jar of capers
1 - 2 cloves of minced garlic
1 tsp basil
salt & pepper to taste
2 - 4 boneless skinless fish filet, grilled ( Tilapia is what I used, but you can use what you like)
zoodle3 by Helen, on Flickr

After grilling fish filet, place zoodles in pan with garlic to warm, tossing lightly. Plate and place fish on top. Now place tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil in pan to warm all ingredients and spoon over fish and zoodles. Serve immediately. So yummy and quick.

Could even use chicken or some other simple protein if you like.

Even zoodle man agrees!

This pillow is one of the many treasured crafted items I've gotten from Craftster members. alwaysinmyroom has honored me with more than this, but this remains a favorite. I do indeed use it daily. It has worn well.


This is the one time ever, Ella has been allowed to be near it. Even she is shocked.


Thank you so much for being my angel. Smiley

18  Chia Pudding Recipe in Vegetarian / Vegan by HSG on: July 21, 2015 05:17:27 PM
Been seeing recipes for chia pudding and got curious. Now this is something that is great for breakfast, and was hopping it might be a good switch for the hubby and his oatmeal obsession. Also if you're craving something sweet, but don't want to blow your healthy habit, this is a good alternative.


Though chia seeds got are most popular for these guys:


Chia Seeds are packed with heart healthy benefits, high in fiber, high in antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids. Once you look there are loads of recipes for using them with other foods, too.


Chia Pudding Recipe
:
2/3 cup chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 tsp. real vanilla extract
1 - 2 T. light agave nectar
fresh or frozen fruit (for mine I used bananas and blueberries)

Directions:
Mix first 5 ingredients on a bowl. Dish half full into refrigerator safe cup. Place fruit on top of that layer, put in more chia mix and add fruit to top off. Cover with plastic wrap, refrigerate overnight. Eat!




This pudding is filling and yummy. There are many variations online, but this was my mix of the ones I read.  Smiley

20  Lumbar Pillows: Velvet Stamping in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by HSG on: July 12, 2015 11:02:17 AM
Friend of mine asked for help re-decorating her dining room. When I was hemming the curtains, which are grey velvet, there was enough leftover to make lumbar pillows for the head chairs.

There is an old technique I've used before called, velvet stamping. Since she has a large tree art piece I wanted to make trees on the pillows to match.

Here are some in progress and one of the chairs with the lumbar pillow.

Stamp used is about 3-4 inches, and this is how it looks when first done.


Did a random pattern on the fabric.

Chair with pillow, although hard to see trees with this picture.


The dining room turned out gorgeous, and the little touch from the velvet stamped pillows turned out to be a good accent.

Thanks for looking. Smiley
