1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Creating a Mexican Menu on: October 26, 2009 12:17:32 PM
I'm in a graphics class and we have to create a menu for a fictitious restaurant based on the assigned food genre our professor supplied. I was given Mexican food which is awesome since I love it dearly. My sister is a vegan so I thought I might go for a vegan/vegetarian themed menu. I was hoping you ladies and gents might have some good ideas for what kind of food I should sell.

My idea is that of a Mexican food stand type of deal. So it would have to be fast food to make or food that can stand to sit all day (such as beans or rice).

Any ideas will be welcome and I'll try to get images posted when the project is done with so you can see just what I had in mind Smiley

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Black and White Photography : Intermediate Show (rather large) on: January 12, 2009 12:13:08 PM
My intermediate black and white class had a show at the end of the fall semester. We each had a concentration and mine was tattoos. I like some more than others and there were a few I didn't get the chance to print out. Hopefully in the spring I'll get back into the darkroom.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sample of Photography: Img Obese on: October 21, 2008 06:58:00 AM
For a while I've wanted to post up some of my own photos particularly the ones I do in the darkroom, unfortunately at this time, the file size is too big when it comes to those images. So I thought I'd share some older, color photos done with film! Do any of you even use film anymore? Pretty sure everything I've seen has been digital. Poor film Sad - some of the photos seem hazy because I was a dope and used the wrong speed film. Hence the graininess.

Anyway - Photos. These will go from Most recent to Oldest starting off with my family reunion trip to Portland OR over the summer.

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies on: February 26, 2008 08:45:06 AM
So my sister and one of my co-workers are both vegan. My sister used to love my chocolate chip cookies when she was young and non-vegan. So when she came home for a week I thought I'd try my hand at a vegan cookie recipe. I don't remember were I got it but to say the least they did not turn out very good. Before baking the dough was good, but after....they were like rocks.

So I went to the grocery store, picked up some Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips (vegan) and went at it again. This time I simply modified my homemade chocolate chip recipe - only for vegans. And they tasted exactly the same. So I thought I'd share it with you incase you too were having a bit of trouble. : )

~2 sticks (equal to 1 cup) of vegan margarine
~2 "eggs" (also known as egg replacer equal to 2 eggs)
~1 tsp of vanilla
~1.5 cups of sugar
~2.5 cups of flour
~1 tsp of baking soda
~however many vegan chocolate bits you want to put in
~an oven preheated to 350F
~baking sheets
~parchment paper
~a spoon or rubber spatula
~mixing bowl

The How To:
1. You want your margarine to be room temperature so that when you mix it, its a nice soft texture. If it's been in the fridge, you can put it in the microwave for 30 to loosen it up. But don't melt it in there - if your margarine is liquidy they don't turn out as well. Also - preheat your ocen to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix in the sugar, vanilla and "eggs". The egg replacer I used was 1.5 tsps of the mix plus 2 tblspns of warm water equaled one egg. But check the packaging on yours first.
If everything is mixed right you should have a consistency that looks a little grainy (from the sugar) but it a nice yellow color and moderately thick.
3. Now you can add in the flour and baking soda. If your bowl has high walls you should be okay - but for those of you with not so high walls, be prepared for possible flour on the counter/table/floor/clothing. I tend to mix in the flour and baking soda a little first then add the chips. But thats up to you.  : ) 
4. Now with your mixture try some. Im serious - you should. It's really good.
5. Take your baking sheets and line them with the parchment paper. This will keep the cookies from sticking to the pan and not get so burnt on the bottom.
6. Once your oven has preheated itself long enough slid the trays in and wait. Now when I bake, I know my cookies are done when they smell right. I'm not big on timers. But I know some people are so try setting the timer for 10 minutes but check them before the timer goes off. I don't want you guys and gals having burnt cookies! Eventually you will find the perfect time setting and you should post it here for everyone else to go off of.

^___^ So thats it - how you will try them out and enjoy. (PS for those non-vegans out there - substitute the vegan products with dairy products and the rest is the same)
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Halloween Help on: October 28, 2007 01:39:27 PM
This year I really wasn't planning on dressing up for Halloween. However, seeing as we are allowed to at work (which suprised me) I didnt want to feel left out. ^___^ So the question becomes, what can I possibly throw together in two days.
Originally I was thinking about being a Radiacal Animal Rights Activist, but my mom thinks its too PC. Whch totally kills my desire to be it. And since I work at a bookstore, maybe its not the greatest idea.

So I needa costume that I can piece together (preferrably without much or any sewing involved) and tha'd be appropriate for every possible type of consumer. Any ideas would be loved dearly!
