81  Vegetarian 200 Calorie English Muffin Pizza in Vegetarian / Vegan by TechnicolorAquahearts on: July 05, 2013 05:48:44 PM
I have recently been making a new attempt at getting healthy, so I have been trying to come up with fun, yummy, and creative recipes that are around 200 calories to fit my plan. Here is one of my attempts, I think it turned out pretty tasty  Smiley

The recipe is really easy:
1 English Muffin, I used a Thomas 100 calorie one.
1tbsp tomato sauce (is plenty for both pieces)
1/4 mozzarella cheese (I used Sargento and it was plenty for both pieces)
A few bits of pepper, mushroom, and morningstar farms veggie bacon.

Cut the English muffin in half and toast the two halves, place on a cookie sheet and build like pizza, then place in the oven under the broiler until the cheese is nice and bubbly. Note: these don't need a whole piece of veggie bacon, I used about 1/3 of one slice. If you eat the whole slice of veggie bacon it is slightly more than 200 calories.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
Project Name:
High Protein, High Fiber, Vegetarian, 200 calorie English Muffin pizza. Now I realize that normally some little pizzas would not be considered a complicated or dangerous craft, BUT a lot of arithmancy had to be used to make sure that these little treats were healthy enough for my newest curse breaking project: breaking the curse of diabetes. It has been seven days since I decided to try again to get healthy, and Merlin's beard has it taken a lot of wand waving and incantations to stay on track. I know I can do it though, there are many a wizard before me who have broken the curses of obesity and diabetes, so I can too. These pizzas are 200 calories for both of them and they were very tasty! I have worked hard this week to not only eat healthy, but make creative and fun recipes at the same time, so far I have had chipotle tofu fajitas, spicy hibachi broccoli, and lots more, so really turning in this recipe is just turning in an example of the more complicated work I have been doing all week.

83  Sarcastic Ceramic Plaques in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by TechnicolorAquahearts on: July 03, 2013 03:57:28 PM
I had some cookie cutters, some stamps, and some clay so this is what I came up with:

I didn't use regular glazing techniques with these, instead I fired them to bisque and then used a watercolor and varnish technique to give them a stained look. I think they turned out pretty well!

84  Biscoff Butter and Cookie truffles in Dessert by TechnicolorAquahearts on: July 03, 2013 03:41:54 PM
The very first time i tried Biscoff cookie butter I thought, hmm this would make some amazing truffles. So I finally got around to trying that idea, and man are they delicious!

They were really simple to make: First I thickened the Biscoff butter with some powdered sugar until I could make little balls with it. Then I melted some white chocolate and started the little cups in the candy mold, then I placed a little ball of the filling into the mold and finally I placed a little piece of cookie in there too for a little crunch, then I filled the mold the rest of the way with more melted white chocolate and put them in the freezer for a minute to set. Once they were set, I popped them out and dusted them with some nutmeg and cinnamon.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: June Detention
Project Name: Cookie Butter Truffles
Brief Description: These truffles taste so evily good that they had to come from a Slytherin  Wink They didn't heat up the kitchen at all because all they needed was a little zap in the microwave wave of the wand to melt the white chocolate. They are made with Biscoff cookie butter thickened with powdered sugar and a little piece of biscoff cookie to add a little crunch. The centers were enrobed in white chocolate with the help of a candy mold, and finally they truffles were dusted with some nutmeg and cinnamon.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Ceramic Punk Plaque
Brief Description: I used the Defodio charm to carve designs into some clay to make this plaque

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Divination
House: Slytherin
Project Name:Texas Diva Ceramic Plaque
Brief Description: I had to use a powerful pyromancy spell to fire the raw clay into a finished ceramic piece. This is also what happens when you give me some clay, some stamps, and a cookie cutter shaped like Texas. It was kind of like that show Chopped where contestants are given some mystery ingredients and then they have to make something delicious out of them. Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride:BEAN challenge: Rotten Eggs
Project Name: Help Me ceramic coaster/art piece
Brief Description: This project fits the rotten eggs bean challenge in more than one way, first of all I had to use the element of fire to create it's solid form, second of all it is made of clay which is the element of earth, and third the clay is made from elements on the periodic table such as:Silicon, Aluminum (found in the compound Bauxite), and carbon. Also the Orange and red stains I used contain Iron.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: BEAN - Onion
Project Name:Layered Vegetarian "Chicken" Nachos
Brief Description: Something I love when I go out to restaurants is some really good fajita nachos, but those are not good for the diet or the wallet, so I made some at home using a chicken alternative called Quorn. There are four layers to these nachos: Chip, beans, Quorn chunk, and cheese. Optionally you can add more layers like taco sauce or sour cream. I added a lot of flavor by sauteing the Quorn pieces in olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, and onion salt. The lime really makes the flavor pop.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
Project Name: Hungarian Horntail Candy Dragon Spikes

Brief Description: The hungarian Horntail is the dragon that Harry ends up fighting in The Goblet of Fire. It is a Brown colored dragon with spike like horns on its head and tail.

These playful pops are a rootbeer reminder of the fierce Hungarian beast. Look for them at honeydukes!

87  Summer Fire Orange Tribal Geometric Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TechnicolorAquahearts on: June 20, 2013 12:49:40 PM
One of my favorite mediums is Shrinky Dink because there is just so much you can do with it! This is the first time I have made something line and pattern oriented with it. I am pleased with how this project turned out. At first I was going to make more of a bib necklace with a lot more pieces, but the pieces turned out much bigger than I thought so instead of making one big necklace I got four necklaces and 3 pairs of earrings out of it.

88  Pink Cherry Salt Water Taffy in Dessert by TechnicolorAquahearts on: June 19, 2013 02:41:51 PM
I have made taffy several times now and I keep getting better at it. My first attempt was a total failure because it got to hard to pull with in seconds and I had to throw it away. This batch is almost perfect. It is still a little hard, but it softens right up after you have in your mouth for a second. I guess I will keep tweaking until I get the soft taffy that I am dreaming of Smiley but in the mean time I have this yummy batch to tide me over.

89  Peacock Tea Party Cake in Dessert by TechnicolorAquahearts on: June 19, 2013 02:36:12 PM

I made this cake small so it would be a nice center piece for a small tea party or maybe a romantic dinner for two. The peacock is made out of fondant painted with glycerin mixed with Wilton gel colors. I made the white chocolate accent pieces by putting the melted chocolate in a squeeze bottle and drawing them out on wax paper.

Here is a pic of the blue marble effect I got with the fondant I covered the cake with:

Here's a detail shot of the feathers:

And here is the finished cake:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
Project Name: Cherry Flavored Tremendous Taffy

Brief Description: While tinkering around with my potions cauldron, I was able to wave up a batch of Tremendous Taffies. They are little pieces of candy to keep with you when you are feeling meek and discouraged. Just chew on one of these and you will be feeling tremendous in no time. Of course they are rather bland to the taste so added some cherry extract to liven them up.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
Project Name: Peacock center piece cake
Brief Description: I love decorating cakes and seeing how many creative designs I can come up with, so when I read the Alchemy assignment I immediately pictured a fondant peacock. I made this cake small and square, so it would be a perfect center piece for an intimate tea party or a romantic dinner for two. The cake is pound cake because I thought a denser cake would support the structure of the design. Each feather was individually painted and it took forever. I used melted white chocolate in a squeeze bottle to make the accents.

Here's a pic of the blue marbled fondant that the cake is covered in:

Here is a detail of the tail feathers:

Here is the final cake:
