That's gorgeous. When looking at it before reading your description I thought it looked very Van Gogh-y.

Love the colours.

I tried to make this a few weeks ago and it completely failed. It didn't taste fried at all although I used quite a bit of oil. It was so disappointing. What did I do wrong- do you try not to stir it? Use a higher heat?

Thanks. (And I really want veggie sausages now!)

Apparantly the ones I remember were called FARFALLETTE and I looked up a recipe for them, but I don't think they're the ones you mean. However, this recipe doesn't look quite right for the ones I remember either and we might have a better one at home.

1/2 ts Orange flavoring
1 ts Almond flavoring
2 tb Butter, - softened
6 Eggs
3 c Flour
1 ts Salt
Oil, for frying

1/2 c Lard, softened
Oil, for frying
6 c Flour
6 Eggs
3 tb Granulated sugar
2 tb Baking powder
1/4 c Sugar
1/4 ts Salt

*Beat eggs, sugar, salt and flavorings; place flour on board, cut in butter; add eggs and knead until s smooth ball; if dough is too soft, gradually add a little flour
*divide dough into 4 pieces and roll each piece to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured board
*cut with pastry cutter into strips 6 inches long and 1 inch wide
*tie into a loose knot and deep fry until golden brown
*drain and sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

*Combine dry ingredients and mix well
*cut in lard and add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition
*knead as above; cut into strips, tie into a knot, fry and drain on paper towels
*cool and sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

They look cool but uncomfortable. You haven't lined the gusset with cotton (or another natural fibre) have you? That's something to consider for next time. But the fact of a man making these for his girlfriend is very romantic!

I like the pair with the buttons best.

What you said about pulling one end through the slit and making a funny-shaped cookie reminded me of some we made about 10 years ago! They were crisp and dipped in powdered sugar while still hot. They might have been fried first, though.
I'll try and find out what they were called and how we made them.
6  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: FINALLY MY JOLLY ROGER IS FINISHED!!! **picture heavy** on: December 10, 2009 12:56:44 PM
It is amazing. I saw it and thought "I really MUST learn to knit again and make one for my brother. And possibly myself." But then saw that it was crochet. Am really hoping this will work with knitting. (When I've finally worked through all the beginner's stages of how do you knit a shape? How do you change colours? How do you work out what size it will be?  Roll Eyes Yes ok I will go and search for basics now.)

You are inspiring.

I just made some of this- it's in the fridge right now! Had been looking for a recipe, so thanks.

Does anyone know if it would freeze well?
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: FREE FEATHERS- does anyone want some? on: August 19, 2009 04:58:39 AM
if no one wants them just remake some pillows
I'd prefer to give them to someone who could use them because I really don't need 200-and-counting pillows.

Could we compost them, do you think?
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / FREE FEATHERS- does anyone want some? on: August 18, 2009 05:40:19 AM
Does anyone want large quantities of white, slightly dusty feathers?

I'm in a performance group and one of our shows we finish with a pillow fight using slashed pillows. We end up with this:

So we have 25 pillow-fulls of feathers per show to get rid of. We're doing the show twice this week, another time in September and more after that so if you want lots of feathers, we can give them to you!  We pick the feathers off the floor so they are a bit dusty: they might not be suitable for putting back into pillows unless you can wash them.

We're based in Glasgow so I don't know if we could transport them to you if you're outside the UK.

If anyone could use some, please PM me.

Interesting. It looks kind of mouldy (like a chair left for a long time in a shed or garden would get) but then you see how perfectly white and smooth the rest of the seat is, so see that it's like that on purpose.

Did you do the same thing to the back of the chair- the curved bit?
