1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Roasted Red Pepper Tofu Dip (non-vegan) on: July 27, 2007 06:03:32 PM
I just made a really good dip/spread this evening.  I based it on a recipe I made before but I couldn't find it again, so I went by memory and winged it a little.  So, in a mostly self-serving move I'm posting it here so I can always find it.  And so all you other lovely people can try it if you're so inclined.

12-oz block lite soft silken tofu, drained (wrap in clean tea towel and squeeze as much liquid as you can from it)
4 oz 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1/2 of a 7-oz jar of roasted red peppers, roughly chopped
a tsp or so of fresh basil leaves
scant tsp chopped dried onions
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp sugar
dash ground ginger (1/8-1/4 tsp maybe)
1/2 to 1 tsp or so lime juice

Toss it all in your food processor (or blender) and process until smooth.  Refrigerate for a couple hours to let the flavors mingle, exchange phone numbers, etc.  So far I've had it with wheat thins type crackers and baby carrots, but tortilla chips, pita bread, other veggies would be good with it, too.

I didn't measure anything, so they're all approximations.  You can adjust it all to taste.

And now to hit post so I don't lose this recipe like the last one . . . (this one came out better than the one I lost, anyway, so it wasn't all bad)
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chain link bracelet--crochet style on: October 13, 2006 04:10:12 PM
My latest crochet jewelry brainstorm creation: interconnected chain of crocheted cotton loops. 

Pretty colors--kind of washed out though.  My Photoshop skills are less than nonexistent.

And the blurry action shot complete with scrawny wrist and watch tan line

Comments always make me happy . . .
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Red Tiger Rosette Earrings on: August 28, 2006 04:09:57 PM
I made these earrings over the weekend  but the sun refuses to come out so I can take good pictures.  I think they're really cute considering they're nothing but fabric and buttons, but I'm not always such a good judge of something's more universal appeal . . .

Comments, questions, welcomed.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Elegant Dreamcatcher-y Crocheted Earrings--Now with more pics! on: April 11, 2006 07:25:20 AM
This is my new favoritest earring pattern that I've come up with.  What do you think?




I've been in sort of a crafter's block lately and haven't posted anything in a while, so thought I'd share. Smiley

(and of course they're for sale; link in sig below.  The 3rd pair will be listed soon.  Y'know, just in case you're so inclined)

These are a couple new pairs I've made in the last week.  They're only 7/8" of an inch across vs 1.25" for the ones above.

Okay, so I really just rediscovered this funky little flower loom an aunt gave me a couple years ago and decided to do some stashbusting and make some pins. 



6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Templeton Turkey on: December 16, 2005 10:51:35 AM
Eeee! I'm so proud of myself--I made a turkey that looks like a turkey completely without a pattern.  So, in other words, I probably couldn't write up a pattern if I tried.  I just winged it as I went along (no pun intended).

Anyway, here he is, photographed just in time for Etsy's competition.




Ain't he cute?
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I made a bowl out of paper beads on: October 31, 2005 02:31:40 PM
I don't know what possessed me to do this--it took FOREVER.



8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Journal with crocheted cover on: October 31, 2005 02:28:00 PM
I'm not sure whether this is more appropriate here or in crochet, but it's more book than crochet, so--Anyway.  I was making this crochet square for no apparent reason, but partway through I decided to leave it as a rectangle and use it as a cover for a blank book.  I like how it came out.


9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Credit cards as blank books? on: October 30, 2005 06:48:07 AM
I've been hoarding all those fake credit cards that keep coming in the mail for months now with nothing definite in mind to make from them.  I hadn't made any books in a while, so I figured, why not make teensy little notebooks? 



With pink and purple paper, no less

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Diva Frog Amigurumi (and a lion and ephelump) on: October 30, 2005 06:41:31 AM
I went a little crazy making these animals a couple weeks ago.  The lion and elephant came out nicely, but I didn't really like the frog.  When I sewed the eyes on, the ends of the threads looked like eyelashes, so I went from there and, uh, embellished her a bit.

Mr Lion.  I didn't have any fur type yarn, so I used some of my Target fringe yarn for his mane.  I rather like how it came out.


Mr. Ephelump.  Elephants should be fatter than lions and frogs, so I expanded his body a bit to make him more rotund.


And Ms. Diva Frog.  Her dress is knit from a purple boucle yarn I had left over from a hat for my sister, her jewelry is dollar store beads, and I just sort of winged her hat.  Ain't she purty?



Can you believe my husband just rolled his eyes at me?  Grin
