1  Baby farm quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by The Moose on: November 28, 2012 09:50:30 AM
I recently made this farm quilt for my friends new baby (I got the idea here
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=411821.0). Incredibly, I had all the materials I needed at homedidnt have to buy a thing (think about what that says about my fabric collection).

Cotton quilting fabrics, cotton batting. 18 x 24.

2  Om Nom Collards & Corncakes in Vegetarian / Vegan by The Moose on: February 01, 2012 06:24:08 PM

Om Nom Collards & Corncakes

This was my dinner tonight and it was soooo tasty! Both recipes are ones I've tweaked (sometimes quite a bit) from the Veganomicon. The collards have a pretty rich, complex taste and the corncakes are delightfully buttery (despite containing no butter of any kind).


1 lb collards, stems removed & torn into pieces
2 cloves garlic (or more if desired)
1/2 red onion
1 Tbs olive or grapeseed oil
1/2 c veggie broth
2 Tbs tamari
1 Tbs red pepper flakes
1 vegan sausage, sliced or broken into chuncks (I recommend the Italian sausage from Vegan Brunch)
2 Tbs coconut milk

Saute garlic and onion in oil. Add collard pieces and saute for 2 mins. Add broth, tamari, and pepper flakes, cook for 10 mins, tossing often. Add sausage about half-way through. Once collards are tender and liquid is absorbed, add coconut milk. Serve promptly.


Make the batter for this before you start on the collards, then you can cook them on the stove simultaneously. Half the recipe if you're making these for one person, because I don't think they'll be good as leftovers.

3/4 c all purpose flour
1/2 c cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs canola oil
1 1/4 c almond milk (or other nondairy milk)
1/4 c water
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs brown rice syrup
1 tsp lemon juice

Mix together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Let sit for at 10 mins while you prepare the collards or do a kitchen dance or something. Then heat up your skillet and cook them as you would pancakes--spoon out some batter, let it cook until bubbles form on top, and flip. Pancakes should be slightly firm and lightly browned.

Share and enjoy!

I'm soon to leave Portland, a city I really love. So I made myself this little card as a reminder of my time here.

We had a craft party at my house this weekend, and we started telling silly jokes. Then these happened Smiley

5  Vegan Pomegranate Coconut Cream Scones in Vegetarian / Vegan by The Moose on: May 14, 2011 01:59:16 PM
It seems like most recipes call for either a whole can of coconut milk, or just a few tablespoons. This is a recipe I use for when I have at least half a can of coconut milk left over and I don't know what to do with it. I adapted it from the Joy of Cooking, and added a few touches of my own.

Vegan Pomegranate Coconut Cream Scones

1 3/4 c flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 c coconut milk (if you have less than this, you can always add some nondairy milk)
A few tbs pomegranate jam (or other jam of your choice)

Note:This is not a time for "low-fat" or "lite" coconut milk-- this recipe relies on the thick cream that hangs out at the top of the can.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the coconut milk. Stir until just combined-- not too much. You can carefully pat dough to 3/4" thick and cut it into shapes, or use my preferred method of just plopping out little piles of dough. Once on the cookie sheet, make a divot on the top of each scone-to-be and spoon in a bit of jam. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

Share and enjoy!

6  Tablecloth Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by The Moose on: April 10, 2011 08:31:47 PM
More aprons!

I got this cute tablecloth at a thrift store for a few bucks and decided to turn it into an apron for baking! For the ties I cut up an old cotton curtain I had.

Darts sewn in the side to make it fitted.

Plus, I have plenty of fabric left over to make more!

7  Put a bird on it! Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by The Moose on: April 10, 2011 08:21:43 PM
I picked up a nice skirt at a yard sale this summer that was too small for me and had a broken zipper, so I transformed it into an apron! I had this cute bird fabric that complimented the colors perfectly.

Put a bird on it!

8  Suitcase full of flowers in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by The Moose on: November 19, 2010 03:56:19 PM
Over the summer I amassed lots of random--but cool-- stuff from yard sales. Among these were an old suitcase (50!) and a bunch of good quality fake flowers ($2 for 20!). But I never figured out exactly what to do with them.

And then, suddenly, this happened:

9  Vegan Zucchini Bread! in Vegetarian / Vegan by The Moose on: October 17, 2010 08:26:10 PM
I veganized my old zucchini bread recipes today and it was sooo tasty! This recipe makes a lot-- two loaves, or one big bunt panful. But who ever heard of too much zucchini bread?

2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 c vegan margarine (such as earth balance) at room temp
1 1/2 c sugar
2 c grated zucchini (about 1 large zucchini)
3/4 c apple sauce
1 c chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift dry ingredients together. In another bowl, beat together margarine and sugar until blended. Beat in zucchini, then applesauce until well mixed. Stir in nuts. Add dry ingredients until just blended. Pour into two 8 1/2" pans or 1 bunt pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until done.

10  Bowtie purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by The Moose on: September 18, 2010 05:36:43 PM
The purse I made two years ago finally started to fall apart (after a of use and, also abuse), so it was time to make a new one! The design is based on my old one (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267326.msg3007393#msg3007393), though a bit bigger and with a completely different front. The fabric I used isn't that sturdy, so I used a thin quilt batting between the top and the lining.



The zipper is placed away from the front, so it's more hidden from view. This zipper was a total PITA! The bias tape saved my life.

Action shot:

I had all of the materials on hand (even the zipper), which was great, since I decided to start crafting at 10 at night. This just reinforces my addiction to quilt shops and my compulsion to collect fabric, even when I don't have any use for it-- yet!
