I received 2 hilarious cards from pilar farmer.  She went with my 'limes drinking tequila' theme and I am so glad she did.  I can't explain how much I f'n love these cards  Grin

The limes are doing body shots in the first card and a lime appears to have passed out from too much tequila in the second card.  LOVE!!

Thank you pilar farmer  Kiss Kiss Kiss

My mailbox was full of ATCs yesterday!  I received a couple from the Halloween ATC swap as well as these awesome cards from virnsky and ENGRbyDAY.

From ENGRbyDay for my botany theme:

I really love the image she chose and the background is a watercolour by her daughter. 

From virnsky for my shooting stars theme:

She painted and stamped and glittered!  All my faves  Cheesy

Thanks for the great cards guys!   Kiss Kiss Kiss

Yay!  I received 2 great ATCs yesterday.  They are the first Halloween ATCs I've ever gotten so that makes them even better!

First up is this glittery spider on a glittery spider web from whileitisraining.  The web is hard to see in the pic but it looks pretty sweet up close!

And then this cool one from CDEeeek.  I especially love the background!

Thanks for the cards guys!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

6  Veggie Burgers in Vegetarian / Vegan by Oyhana on: August 02, 2012 04:01:20 PM
YAY!!  Food challenge!  Cheesy

This is my recipe for veggie burgers.  The patties are made with yummy and good-for-you ingredients.  You can dress them up any way you like.  This particular one was made with a roasted red pepper and basil aioli, pesto marinated mozzarella, some micro greens and a couple slices of roma tomato.  You will need a food processor to make the patties.

I use a basic recipe aioli recipe: 1 egg, 1/2 cup oil, vinegar and salt.  I add to it a red pepper that has been charred on the grill, small handful of fresh basil and a little garlic.  It gets all mixed up in a food processor.  You can use store bought mayonnaise and jarred roasted peppers if you wish.

For the pesto I use equal parts of basil & spinach, walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, & oil and whoosh it all together with a hand blender.  Mix some of the pesto and some grated mozzarella together in a bowl. 

You can use store bought buns if that is what you like; I like to make my own.  These buns were made with quinoa, oats, spelt and a little molasses for colour. 

OK!  On to the veggie patties.

You will need:

3/4 pound mushrooms
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (not packed in oil is best)
2 cups chickpeas
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
garlic salt

1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup grated beet
1/2 cup green peas
handful fresh basil
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup bran
5 eggs

1. Drain the chickpeas if you are using canned and slice up the mushrooms.  (You can use any mushrooms you like.  These burgers were made with a mix of button and portabello.)

2. Put the first set of ingredients into a big pot or pan.  Cook with occasional stirring, over medium heat until the mushrooms are sweating; about 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and let this mixture cool a little bit.

3. While the chickpea mixture is cooling you can get the veggies ready.  Rough chop the carrot and beets in a food processor.  You can do them separately if you don't want your carrots turning purple  Cheesy Put in a big bowl.

4. Chop the basil and add to the big bowl with the carrot and beet along with the peas, oats, bran and eggs.

5. Puree the cooled chickpea and mushroom mixture in the food processor.  You want the texture to be really mushy.  Add to the big bowl.

6.  Mix really well with your hands.  The mixture will be quite wet.  Now it's time to make the patties.

7.  I weigh my patties into 5 oz portions, though you can make them as big or as small as you like.  I place them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

8.  Bake your patties on low heat.  I normally do between 250 and three hundred degrees.  It takes about 20 to 30 minutes.  Check every so often.  You no longer want the pattie to be wet to the touch and they should be somewhat 'solid' 

9. You can now eat them or let them cool and store.  They freeze ok, but are better fresh. 

10.  They reheat great in the oven!  Enjoy  Grin

7  salsa recipe in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Oyhana on: July 31, 2012 05:15:30 PM
Just wanted to share my salsa recipe with you guys.  This makes a large batch and is great for canning or freezing.  Smiley

1 small diced red pepper
1 small diced green pepper
3 small diced celery hearts
1/2 cup small diced red onion
5 small diced roma tomatoes
1/4 cup garlic
2 cans (14 oz) tomato paste
7 cups water
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons coarse salt
1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon corriander (I like to use whole corrinader but ground up works good too)
juice of 2 limes

Put everything except for the lime juice in a big enough pot and simmer for half an hour.  Stir occasionally so nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot.  Squeeze in the lime juice and simmer for five minutes more.  Done!

8  V-neck dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Oyhana on: July 16, 2012 01:52:57 PM
The fab violentjayne posted this great tutorial for making your own pattern for a cute summer dress.  EllaRain shared her pretty dress here.  I love v-necks and cute casual dresses so when I saw the tutorial I was inspired to pull out my sewing machine.  I love this pattern sooo much.  It is very simple but you can play around with the length, neckline, shaping, etc...  I have a few more planned and think they will also make awesome winter dresses to pair with leggings.  Thank you so much violentjayne for sharing your tuts and great clothes with us!
