Pottermouth: On the shelf of my bedroom closet, next to my pjs - because after book 3, they're too big to fit under my pillow!

Patty_o: I'm totally going to make that for our LEGO team! An easy recipe with no nuts, red food coloring or high-fructose corn syrup? I'm there!

Ha!  This is awesome!  And oh so true...very hard to fit under one's pillow...unless one is lucky enough to have some audio books which fit on a slim mp3 thingy...

I am working on another tiny project though not for marking...will be working on another homework assignment soon too...I have a plan...  Grin

Awesome things in the making...the marios are great, love the idea of the shawl and yummy looking treats! And wow!  I was amazed you managed to do that plaiting on yourself, that is very clever!

Challenge: Holiday Recipe Challenge
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Herbed Beer Bread Mix in a Jar



Brief Description: This is something I enjoy both making at home, and giving as a Mix in a Jar gift at the holidays.  The recipe itself easily fits into a Mason jar, or another re-purposed jar you may have saved from the recycling bin.  Print out the directions onto pretty paper and tie them on with some scrap yarn or ribbon for a really easy and inexpensive gift.  Provided you use a vegan beer, the recipe is also vegan friendly.  Smiley

If you would prefer not to include alcohol (either you don't drink or want to cut calories), you can make it up with a can of seltzer water in place of the beer.  I have included the recipes for both the basic mix, and for the Herbed variation below.  Best part is that it can be easily altered to suit your tastes.  You could easily replace the herbs with seasonal flavors like cinnamon & nutmeg if the mood takes you.


Basic Beer Bread Mix
3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
4 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder -- See Recipe
3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt

Combine all ingredients well and store in an air-tight jar.


Herbed Beer Bread Mix
3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
4 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder -- See Recipe
3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 T dried chives
1 T dried parsley
1 T dried onions


To use either mix you will need:
1 jar of Beer Bread Mix
12 Oz. (1 can) beer, or seltzer
2 T. butter or margarine, melted (opional)

Preheat oven and grease loaf pan(s). Place Beer Bread Mix in a large bowl.  Add beer and stir with a wooden spoon.  Pour into loaf pan.  If desired, pour the melted butter or margarine over the top of the loaf and bake as follows:

1 large loaf - 350 for 1 1/4 hours
2 small loaves - 400 for 45 minutes

Class: Transfiguration - Avis Spell
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Little Birdy Badge
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
After practicing for a while I have finally achieved the Avis spell...here is my first whole birdy...lots of feathers from previous attempts, but that's okay i can use those for stuffing or something.

Project Picture:

Avis Birdy Felt badge


You can see some of the foxes and elephants I have been working on too, just because I had made some like them in the past and really wanted to make some more. 

Actually maybe I could use it for the geminio challenge...though have another idea for that too...will see...

That bread looks lovely jennieingram! Great idea for a gift too, cool.

Kiss Happy New Year HPCers! Cheesy

@CraftyLadyMJ: YAY first turn-in! Way to Go!  Your bees are adorable!

@WhistleFish: Your OWL is coming along nicely.  I would love to see it finished, but understand if you want to purpose a new OWL.

@AugustBell: Welcome Back!  Love your socks!

@FiberAlchemist: YUM!  And ~*OWL Approved*~ I cannot wait to see this wrap finished!  Sending you a pot of a super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin.

@pattyO: Lovely!  Braiding Charms are very tricky; I haven't mastered one yet!  And mmmmmm...smores

@jennie: Fab Gift & Home-Staple!  :::taking moment to reminisce about bread:::

@Foxy Sam: Well done on mastering the Avis Spell...your Bird Badge is a fab memento of this accomplishment

Class: Care of Magical Creatures + SPEW
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: 5 Squares for PRR and OWL prep
Patterns Used: Big Round & Colorful Bobbles from 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton
Brief Description: For my CoMC assignment, I have created squares which represent some of the fur variations of the kneazle, freckled, striped, spotted, and solid colored....though perhaps no in currently available fur colors, unless one has mastered the Colovaria Charm.  These squares are a prep I did for my OWL.  These didn't make my cut for OWL because I decided to focus my Advanced Studies solely on 6" squares.

@AugustBell: The socks were pretty good...until you put them on an actual toddler - sooooo adorable! I love them so much!
@jillybeans: Congrats on WotW!
@FiberAlchemist: That recipe sounds delicious! And your OWL - what a lovely shawl! I especially loved the author's little story about Doctor Who scarves from the link. Lol.
@patty_o_furniture: I can braid my own hair but I don't think there is any way I can accomplish what you've done. Haha. Lovely job! And awesome looking recipe!
@jennieingram: Beer bread! I bet that's so tasty!
@Foxy Sam: Love the little bird badge! (And the elephants and foxes in the background!)
@pinkleo: Dear! So many blocks! You've been quite busy. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite. Awesome job! (Now I have to go back and re-read what your advanced study was 'cause I don't remember. Haha.)



Challenge: Holiday Recipe Challenge
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Buffalo Chicken Dip
Brief Description:  On very special occasions when the boyfriend and I decide we like to be just a bit fatter, we make Buffalo Chicken Dip. I don't even like spicy food, but I can eat this to no end. We made some last night as a last hurrah before my diet begins. Haha. It's super easy.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb chicken breast/tenders
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 16 oz velveeta
  • 1 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 3/4 cup Ranch dressing

How to make:
  • Cook chicken in pot or crock pot, drain, shred.
  • Cut both cream cheese and velveeta into cubes so it melts quicker.
  • Combine cheeses and chicken in crock pot on high. Stir occasionally until all cheese is melted.
  • Once cheese are melted and stirred up with the chicken, add hot sauce and ranch dressing.
  • Once heated to desired temperature, turn crock pot on "warm" and enjoy with some tortilla chips.

No fancy picture from last night, just one from some my boyfriend reheated today.

An easy recipe with no nuts, red food coloring or high-fructose corn syrup? I'm there!

It has corn syrup, but you could substitute agave or honey.  Or you could omit, but I've always preferred it with because it looks smoother and it seems to hold together better.  But its been years since I've omitted, so feel free to try it out!

Class: Apparition
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Dishcloth 23
Brief Description: Simple but so useful, my handy dandy cleaning cloth, perfect for muggle and magical messes.  This is my 23rd recorded time making this pattern (meaning I took a pic and posted it either here or on Ravelry), but I've made even more...many going to family & friends.  This shall not be the last of one of this pattern; I'm working on reducing my paper towel usage....plus, for cleaning, these beat paper towels anyday!
