1  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Disaster Cups on: January 20, 2011 01:18:30 PM
Does anyone here read Martha Stewart Living magazine?  I love it...but no matter how hard you try...I guarantee nothing you make will ever look as good as hers.  She must be some kind of magical creature.

Anyway, to prove my point, I tried to make homemade chocolate peanut butter cups that were mentioned in the February 2011 issue.  This is how they turned out:

I couldn't get the paper off without the cups completely falling apart.  I'm sure it would work if I made the chocolate on the sides thicker but at this point, I've lost all interest.  I'm going to use the chocolate bits to make cupcakes tomorrow.

I was frustrated...I even had to blog about this experience.  Hah.  I could post a tutorial on how to make these if you'd like...just kidding...
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Little Mirrors on: January 13, 2011 07:19:16 PM
I recently bought a magnetic makeup palette: http://uniicosmetics.com so I depotted all of my makeup (took it out of the compact).  As a result, I have lots of little makeup compact mirrors that are just too pretty to throw out.

I have about ten or so.  Most are 2-3 inches in various shapes- circle, square, oval.  I considered making a mirror collage- just arranging them all together in a frame or something- but I thought that might be a little boring.

Any ideas?  I don't mind using them all together or separately.  I can't wait to hear what you all come up with!  You are all just amazing!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Dutch Pancakes! on: January 13, 2011 02:16:35 PM
I just found out about Dutch/oven pancakes!  I can't believe I'd never heard of them!  I hear they're similar to Yorkshire pudding...but better!  They sort of taste like a cream puff....yummmmmm.....


3 eggs
2 tbsp melted butter + 1 tbsp for pan
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup millk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp lemon extract
pinch of salt

It's best to use a seasoned cast iron skillet but a cake pan or any 8-10 inch pan will work...as long as it's oven safe up for 425 degrees!

Start by preheating the oven AND the pan, greased with a little oil, to 425 degrees.  While those are heating, beat eggs until light and frothy, add milk, sugar, extract, salt and 2 tbsp butter.  Mix until combined.  Fold in flour.  The mixture will be lumpy.

When the pan is hot, remove it from the oven, melt the remaining 1 tbsp butter in it, swirling to coat the entire bottom.  Then, add batter to pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and puffy.

I have this posted on my blog.  Go there for a pretty version  Smiley
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Scrubby Bunnies! on: December 10, 2010 03:43:28 PM
Hi everyone!  I had an account on here years ago but I forgot the username so here I am with a new one!

I recently made a tutorial for "Scrubby Bunnies," sugar scrub cubes that make a great gift.  It's a play on "chubby bunnies," the game where you see how many marshmallows you can fit in your mouth and still be able to say "chubby bunnies," but no one seems to get the reference!  Oh well.

You can find the tutorial here: http://theintermissionart.blogspot.com/2010/12/scrubby-bunnies-tutorial.html

Tell me what you think!
