221  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Lulav You Eat (Acutally Asparagus) on: October 13, 2008 12:12:37 PM
This is so yummy it can be made by anyone anytime. However, I made them for the Jewish holiday that starts tonight, called Sukkot. And if you have read ny of my other recipes you know already...it is stupid easy!

Don't they look like lulav!!?? Grin

Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus

Phyllo dough (thawed)
1 lb. asparagus
2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
sea salt, fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup lemon juice
sesame oil
sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400, and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Mix together salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice and whisk.

Heat some sesame oil ni a pan, and put in cleaned asparagus, then pour over spices and lemon mixture. Saute for only a couple of minutes.

Unwrap Phyllo and cut in half length wise. Pick up two spears of asparagus, place at one end of dough and roll up. Place on cookie sheet and brush with a little sesame oil. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top, and bake for about 5 - 8 minutes.

Then eat! Dip into sesame ginger dressing* for an additional treat.

I added Key Limes on the plate to look like etrogs. lol My husband and friends know how silly I am about the details.

*Sesame Ginger Dressing

3 tablespoons ginger, grated
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
1-2 teaspoon lemon juice or rice vinegar
2 teaspoons ginger juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark toasted sesame oil
Mix all together.
222  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Breast Cancer Awareness = Image Intensity - SFW on: October 05, 2008 07:45:21 AM
A couple of years ago I did this computer case mod to help increase breast cancer awareness. It's not been posted here though.

Since it is October, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month I wanted to post it here to bring attention to breast cancer.

With the help of some other PC enthusiasts I did the mod, and put it all together. It was then auctioned on Ebay raising money for breast cancer research.

So without being long winded here are the images. I've got tons more, but these give you the idea of the project. If you have any questions please let me know. All comments welcome.


Marking the case to cut, and add handles

Front door:

The gem in the front bezel which is a 36 carat total gem weight pink stone, has a custom made circuit that comes on every 3 minutes, and then dims to show how often a person is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Thank you all for looking, and please remember to do self breast exams monthly, and have your mammograms yearly!
223  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craftster Blog on: September 12, 2008 04:26:12 AM
Been reading through the Craftster Blog, and have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

Did not know the posts go all the way back to August of 2004. I thought the blog was relatively new, but I was mistaken (cause you know I'm never wrong Wink ).

Leah has an easy writing style, and is quite witty. You all should check it. Smiley

Noticed on the home page about the Master Crafters. Just curious about the addition, and it's purpose. Smiley
225  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic Guitar: Melody in Monochrome on: August 26, 2008 01:58:45 PM
For background on this mosaic you can check here. Otherwise here is the result.

Now the finished piece.

This close up of the grout.

First time using MAC glue, and I had 0 grout bleed on this whole piece! All this glass and no grout under any. MAC glue is my new best tool in mosaics! I highly recommend it for use on indoor mosaics.

That's a wrap...or is that rap?  Smiley

Has there ever been a cooking challenge?  Smiley

Hope to post images this week of the grouted completed guitar. As always though ideas, comments, suggestions and questions always welcome.  Smiley
229  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrink Film Mask Pins on: July 30, 2008 09:56:40 AM
Needed to take a break from a mosaic project I'm working on, so I grabbed some shrink film.

Saw something like these on the net somewhere, but don't recall exactly. Thought they were eye catching, and liked the idea. So here is my take on them.

Just using colored pencils, beads and shrink film. Then added pin backs to wear them. They are about 2 inches across.

Thanks for checking them out! Smiley
230  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Falling Leaves on my Towels! on: July 23, 2008 05:18:45 PM
Hi my name is HSG, and I have a tree fetish.  Grin

This project was inspired by two things:

1. The Bloom Bathmat, by mimiw.

2. And a picture in my guest bathroom downstairs, by meArtDesign on Etsy.

Inherited loads of linens from my Grandmother (who was 96 when she passed away 3 years ago), and these 1970's green towels were amongst the linens. There are 2 large towels, 2 hand towels and 2 wash cloths. Before I would use them though I had to bring them into the current year.  Smiley


Picture used for motif and inspiration:


All the materials used were from my stash, and I am so pleased with how these turned out. Think I will have to dig out some more of the towels. Smiley

Thanks for checking it out!  Smiley
