31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: My First Quilt (Made from my College T-shirts) on: June 14, 2012 07:00:55 PM
Thanks!  I realized that it would have been better to iron some very thin interfacing to the back of each design before cutting and sewing.  This way I could have had much nicer seams without as much headache, and then just torn the interfacing off before quilting the layers together.  Oh well... maybe next time!  (And I did really enjoy making this quilt, I just had to recover for a couple of days before I could really appreciate how much fun it all really is!)

Thanks!  I am glad that I did it that way in the end... I just was cursing the whole time I spent making it!  =)
33  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt (Made from my College T-shirts) on: June 12, 2012 11:10:07 AM

I've never made a quilt before... and I don't think I ever will again!  Dang... these things take too much time!  (And this wasn't even a hard quilt to make!)  I guess that I just don't have the patience required for these projects. 

One of the reasons that I don't think I will ever make another quilt (except maybe like a small quilt for a baby) is because I don't plan ahead well!  I just started cutting without trying to plan which shirts would go where or anything!

If I had actually planned ahead, I would have probably chosen to cut all of the shirts the same size, but I thought this would give it a cute patchwork look.  I regretted this decision once I started sewing the top layer together... but I think it ended up looking really nice with everything all different sizes.

Too bad I didn't do this in the winter when I could appreciate the warmth of a quilt... being 100 degrees outside doesn't really give me much opportunity to use it any time soon!

There are more pictures and specifics about the quilt on my blog. 
34  COOKING / Dessert / Pancake Burgers on: June 08, 2012 09:19:24 AM

For breakfast today I decided to surprise Ryan with veggie burgers!  But that's not very breakfasty... so I decided to make them out of pancakes!

After a little bit of food coloring, coco powder and an icing bag... tada!  Burgers!

We went ahead and used the syrup for "ketchup" and it was all just sooo tasty!

I think that this is going to be a new thing for me to try... pancake art!  There is some great inspiration on this site:  http://www.jimspancakes.com/

There are more pictures on my blog.

Thanks!  The figures are made out of an upside down cupcake with some cereal treats on top to give them a torso.  They are covered with modeling chocolate and their heads and arms and designs are all done with modeling chocolate. 
36  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / German Pancake on: May 21, 2012 03:05:15 PM
German Pancakes

I saw a recipe for this German Pancake in the Family Fun Magazine... it looked so good, I just HAD to try it!  Of course I don't seem to know how to follow a recipe to save my life, so I tweaked it a little bit!  They turned out really good, and it made for a great Sunday morning breakfast! 

I started off by peeling, coring and slicing two small apples.  I coated these in cinnamon and splenda ('cuz I realized that I was out of sugar).

I melted a couple tablespoons of butter by placing the butter in the glass pie pan, and putting it into the oven (which stayed at 400 degrees this whole time).  Once the butter was melted, I spread out the apple slices along the bottom. 

I baked these apple slices for about 10 mintues until the butter was bubbling and golden brown in color.  This is when I poured the pancake batter on top of the apples and baked for another 30 minutes. 

I will say that I had too many apples, or not enough batter, so a lot of the apples didn't stick to the pancake (as you can see in the top photo)... but it was still tasty!  Also, I was out of sour cream, so the batter wasn't as fluffy as I would have liked, but it was still soft on the inside with a crisp top.

The only downside, is that I feel like I could have eaten three of these... but I had to split it with Ryan since he was there when I made it!

I'm glad they worked out!  When I took them to family that year they were gone just as fast!

Thanks!  I thought it might be too cutesy... But it was valentines day so I went for it!

Haha!  That's about how excited I got when I first realized you could flavor it!  And it really is that easy, I've been making it on my own since grade school, so it can't be too hard!  There are videos online for how to make it, and it might help to watch one of those before your first go.
