1  Re: 'Shipping Swap: Two hearts made one! Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Acadian Driftwood on: May 06, 2017 06:13:10 PM
I received two fantastic Harry/Draco themed items from Noxika!

A beautiful throw pillow that's living on my crafting chair right now. Love the image, and the fabric too!



And the cutest hoop, seriously look at their little faces!! Adorable.



Thank you again Noxika for the great package, I hope mine gets to you quickly and lives up to this one!

2  Mug Rug round 7? in New Swap Theme Ideas by Acadian Driftwood on: March 14, 2017 06:24:58 PM


I've made a decent number of mug rugs, and two I even kept for myself, but somehow they both found different jobs around the house. I see we haven't had a mug rug swap in almost 3 years - would anyone be interested if I organized round 7?

I'm thinking participants could choose to have one or two partners. It's a craft that can be kept simple or complicated as you like, and shipping is cheap as a small padded envelope.

Thank you Sharalee, it was very fun swapping with you!

oh wow the mystery dinner sounds really fun!

Here's a catch up post for me -

Thing 24: A craft room decorating project. I unpacked my hoopla and dotees and set them all up on my pinboard. For the past few months it's just been holding my drying hot peppers. Before and after:



Thing 25: Sewed the base for a swap dotee. Sending tomorrow so I'll just post a link - don't look Sharalee!

9  Ricotta biscuits with fresh herbs in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Acadian Driftwood on: February 25, 2017 03:23:39 PM


This is a moist and savory biscuit (slightly modified from this version) that goes fantastically with my breakfasts and soups. I love the punch it gets from all the fresh herbs!

Ingredients in this photo: flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, unsalted butter, fresh parsley, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, scallions, ricotta cheese, milk, egg, sea salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.



In a large bowl, sift together 2 & 1/4 cups of flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Grate in 5 tablespoons of frozen unsalted butter (it's very easy to mix in this way) and mix with a fork until combined.

Chop 3 scallions, a good handful of parsley, about a teaspoon of thyme, and half as much rosemary. Mix it in the the bowl with 1 cup of ricotta. Stir in 2/3 cup of milk until just combined.

Turn the bowl out onto a floured cutting surface and knead it a couple times. Press it down to about an inch high, then cut into pieces and transfer to a parchment-lined tray.

Beat 1 egg and brush it liberally onto the biscuits, and sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.



Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 425 degree oven, until the tops are golden. So so good!

10  Three C's Soup - Carrot, Celery, and Cilantro in Vegetarian / Vegan by Acadian Driftwood on: February 25, 2017 07:26:57 AM
A simple soup, and very tasty! No great pictures of this one, but here's one - the recipe made my dinner for the night and 3 lunches for the week.



Ingredients:
1 pound carrots, trimmed and peeled
3 tbsp butter
1 onion, chopped
1 celery rib, sliced, plus some leafy celery tops
1 medium potato, peeled and chopped
4 cups vegetable stock
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup milk
salt, pepper, oil

Heat 2 tbsp of the butter and a bit of oil in a large pot and saute the onion for a few minutes until it's softened. Add celery rib (not the tops) and potato, then cook for a couple minutes before adding the carrots. Cook gently for a few minutes while stirring, then reduce the heat and cover the pot.

Let the veggies sweat in the low-heat pot for 10 minutes, and shake it around a few times to make sure they're not sticking to the bottom. Add the stock and bring to a boil, then simmer half-covered for another 10 minutes until everything's good and tender.

While it's simmering, chop some of the leafy celery tops, leaving some out for garnish if you like. Melt the remaining 1 tbsp of butter in a small saucepan and add the ground coriander. Stir it around for a minute or less, then add the chopped celery tops and cilantro and cook for another minute. Remove it from the heat and stir in the milk.

When the carrots and potatoes are done cooking in the main pot, puree the soup with an immersion blender (or very carefully in a regular blender) and add the cilantro milk mixture. Season with salt and pepper and serve with a couple celery leaves on top.
