1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Pierogies and Breakfast Burritos, Oh My! on: August 14, 2011 01:35:04 PM
I love my days off!!!!

I ended up making pierogies and breakfast burritos today!

The Pierogies are filled with potato, onion, and cheese, and the Breakfast Burritos are full of hamburger, cheese, salsa, and scrambled eggs.

Oh my goodness was it worth it! I made the dough for both the tortillas and the pierogies by hand, and I made the fillings, too! Both doughs were hard to roll out (darn you small kitchen!!) but after removing everything humanly possible off the counter, I ended up with just enough room to get everything done.

Both recipes were designed for freezing and thawing, so I have plenty of foods I can cook quick, now! And considering I work late, hopefully this should streamline our late dinner time.

Recipes if you want 'em!

Thanks for looking!!
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Soybean Dip? Soybean Dip. on: August 07, 2011 06:10:51 PM
Yep! I made soybean dip!

It was originally an experimental I-really-want-a-snack recipe, but it's so gosh-darned good I've remade it twice now!

The best part about it is my husband-to-be generally avoids vegetables like the plague, and he gobbled it up! Grin

The recipe includes edamame, mayo, olive oil, cream cheese, pepper and garlic salt.

Full recipe on my blog because I really don't want to retype it Tongue

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Tea Tree oil foot treatment! on: May 12, 2009 09:23:56 AM

Sorry about the lack of pictures, but this stuff looked awful, so it's ok. I swear XD

My feet were dry right before bed, and I didn't have any lotion. But in the bathroom I had like, a smidgen of vaseline in a jar left, and a bottle of tea tree oil sitting around. Oh yeah! Easy recipe!

So in the jar I had about... oh... 2 Tablespoons of vaseline. With that, I added about 10 drops of straight tea tree oil, and mixed with a skewer. It smells aaawesome Cheesy

I spread it on my feet, stuck on some socks, and went to sleep. In the morning, my feet looked great!

Tea tree oil is a natural anti-fungal and antibacterial, so it works really well with foot treatments.

Total cost; Nothing! I had everything in my house Cheesy

EDIT; Ffffff, this needs to be moved to the discussion board, could a mod move it? ;_;

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My Revamped Didgeridoo! *Picture Obese* on: October 08, 2008 06:31:48 PM
A didgeridoo is an Austrailian aboriginal instrument that when played makes a deep droning sound. It is usually made of a Eucalyptus branch, hollowed out by termites. It can also be made of Teak, Bamboo, and PVC pipe.
So, yeah. I like the Didgeridoo, 'cept I'm poor  Embarrassed So Originally, I bought a length of PVC pipe and some beeswax, and voila! A didgeridoo is born.

After months of playing this plain white (boooooring!) Didge, I decided to give it some... pizzaz.


standing upright in my dining room...



Detail shot!

And thats my new colored didgeridoo!

8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / New Job Bunny Bento! on: July 24, 2008 11:24:55 AM
So, I'm starting a new job today, and to celebrate, made an awesome bento lunch.

-Bunny rice. Plain rice shaped like a rabbit. My favorite part!
-Heart shaped egg! That look a bit of work. I can't poach a heart-shaped egg Tongue
-Cucumber rolls. My first attempt at sushi in a very long time. I finally mastered sushi rice, and it came out ok!
-Tofu rolls. Same as cucumber rolls.
-Pan-fried tofu. Marinated overnight in a mixture of chili oil, teriaki sauce, soy sauce, and oyster sauce.
-Ikura gunkan maki. Roe filled sushi. I had some Lumpfish in a jar, and used that instead of normal salmon roe.
-Cucumber Hand roll. The first roll I made today. Tasty!
-Shrimp salad. Delicious with rice.
-Carrot chips. I was gonna pack some laughing cow cheese, but i ran out of room
-Hotdog heart. Two ends of a hotdog stuck together, in the shape of a heart. Yay!

So yeah. A ton of stuff, but in very tiny amounts. *Cheers*
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Coin Hair Wrap! on: July 20, 2008 12:28:11 PM
So, I went to a coin store where they had a big bucket of international coins, as well as tokens, things people thought were coins, but aren't, etc. And I came across a coin (I think from greece) with a hole in a middle.
   Jackpot!  Grin I've been in love with the idea of coins braided into my hair for ages. So I decided to try.
  It took me about 5 tries to get it in right, originally using clips, then trying thread, then just wood glue (useful, but eventually comes out), then I tried a small rubber band.

Stays in perfectly! But its ugly. So, I douse the loose ends in wood glue, wrap some purple embroidery thread around it, add more glue, then knot it tightly. Then to cover up the not-so-perfectly braided hair, I wrapped yellow thread up above that.

The end result?

Yay! ^_^
I swear it looks much more smooth IRL. The photo doesn't do it justice.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Ginger Syrup! *Recipe added!* on: June 15, 2008 06:33:00 PM
So, I made some ginger syrup; a classic remedy for nausea, vomiting, cramps, and fever. my favorite part was making the tags, honestly  Cheesy

Since I totally spaced, and didn't add the recipe, here it is!

Ginger Syrup
Yields two bottles (probably around two cups total)

-Two medium ginger roots, and a few small extra hunks, chopped into  1/2" coin-chunk things
-4-6 cups water
-2-3 cups honey (in the end, you're gonna want a 50/50 mix of the liquid and honey

1.) Put the ginger and water into a pot, and heat on high til simmering. Reduce heat to continue simmer.
2.) Let liquid reduce by half. Turn off heat, and remove ginger pieces. Pour liquid into one or more jars, only filling up to half of the jar/bottle
3.) Pour equal amount of honey into jar. cap/cork jar or bottle, and shake until the liquid and honey are mixed. Label and store in the refrigerator for 3-6 months.

Thanks for looking!
