1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my new favorite mediums: vinyl and magazines on: April 03, 2007 04:39:01 PM
I made a new bag for school out of canvas.  The detailing is pictures from magazines sandwiched between vinyl.

2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / my specialty: Christmas Quiche on: March 26, 2007 08:08:06 PM


I'm famous for it!  It even has a song to go along with it:

O Christmas quiche, O Christmas quiche,
How lovely are your colors!
O Christmas quiche, O Christmas quiche,
How lovely are your colors!
You're filled with egg and lots of cheese,
tomatoes, onions, broccoli.
O Christmas quiche, O Christmas quiche,
How lovely are your colors!

annnnd here's the recipe.  mind you, cooking's more of an art than a science for me, so amounts aren't exactly exact.

you'll need:
pie crust dough from your own recipe
swiss cheese
onions
broccoli
tomatoes
3 eggs
1 can evaporated milk

1. First, put the crust in a pie pan, prick it with a fork and bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees F. 

2. While that's baking, steam the broccoli, saut the onions, and grate a bunch of cheese.

3. When the crust is done baking,  place the cheese in the warm shell and let it melt.  layer the onions and broccoli on top of that.
 
4. Next, beat the eggs and evaporated milk together and pour into the pie shell on top of everything else. 

5. Then, slice the tomatoes cross-wise so that it makes cool-looking rings.  cover the top of the quiche in a single layer of the tomatoes.

6. Bake for about 45 minutes at 375 degrees F, or until the middle doesn't slosh around too much when you jiggle it.  Remove from the oven (wear oven mitts, of course) and let cool for about 10 minutes.

In honor of spring, I made this dress with some thrifted fabric and the ever-so-popular Simplicity 3882 pattern.  I love it!
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / nudie woman and a peach [food painting] on: March 20, 2007 10:14:52 AM
This isn't the most brilliant painting I've ever done, but I like it nonetheless.

it's painted with food
strawberry jam & lemon juice for the background
peanut butter & cinnamon for the branch
white frosting & strawberry jam for the peach
& pepper for the lady's outline
so it all smells relatively good together.
This is the picture/t-shirt I used as inspiration

I found this transistor radio at an antiques store for $12 and just couldn't pass it up.

You could open up the back & see all the electrical parts inside.
