1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Turning 25? Have a gore birthday fest!! on: March 12, 2009 09:15:00 AM
Last month I finally entered the dreaded mid 20's. Seeing as how I have a huge affinity for anything gore related, I decided to have a gore themed birthday party. Now, finding special effects makeup at the beginning of Feb was no easy feat, but I found a few items and made a lasting impression at my own party.

A busted nose, bruised head, bruised lip and a slashed arm.

The shock and gasps when I entered the room were enough of a birthday present Smiley

3  COOKING / Dessert / Super pink cherry 'mallow pops. Recipe included. on: May 08, 2008 08:05:05 AM
After some horrible first attempts at making marshmallows, I think I finally got it! These are super pink cherry marshmallows:

Some are dipped in the wonderful India Tree sugar; the others in powdered sugar, some white chocolate and a bit of sugar on top.

The basic recipe:

3 envelopes of gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cups corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or any extract of your choice)

In mixing bowl, combine gelatin and 1/2c water, let stand 10 mins.

After gelatin been allowed to sit for approx. 7-8 mins, combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and allow to rapid/hard boil for 1 whole min.

Pour syrup over gelatin, add salt and mix for 12 mins.

After 12 mins, add your extract of choice and mix till combined.

Pour marshmallow mixture in a pan that has been lined with plastic wrap and lightly oiled. Cover the mallows with an additional piece of oiled plastic wrap and allow to sit overnight.

To cut the marshmallows:
Plop the large marshmallow out of the plastic wrap and onto a cutting board that has been dusted with powdered sugar. Use the sharpest knife you've got in the drawer to cut these bad boys up. You can either dip your knife in powdered sugar before each cut, or run under hot water before each cut (my choice method). Dip your marshmallows into whatever sounds good to you: crushed nuts, sugar crystals or powdered sugar.


4  COOKING / Dessert / Sinfully Dark Chocolate Sauce on: May 08, 2008 08:00:28 AM
I decided on homemade gifts this year for Mother's Day, and what better way to spoil a mother than super dark, rich chocolate sauce? The recipe came from a CIA textbook.

I reused some old fruit jars and hand embroidered the name of the sauce on the top.

It was really yummy on a warm piece of cake Smiley
5  COOKING / Dessert / Lemony yogurt sponge cake...with extra lemony goodness on: April 20, 2008 07:10:06 PM
I do believe this cake didn't last the entire day. Very tasty, very moist, very lemony and super amazing.

Lemon yogurt sponge cake with lemon curd and lemon infused whipped cream.
