1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Stacked Enchiladas on: September 23, 2007 08:59:17 PM
This is basically an enchilada casserole. My mom found a recipe online a few years ago but she can't remember where now. She's been making it for so long she's kind of adapted it and made it her own.

I moved out for school last month and this is definitely the meal I miss the most. I had her email me the recipe and figured I'd share here.

I'm not sure what the exact ingredients the original recipe calls for but this is what my mom uses and I love it.

She uses one of those 3-qt. glass pryrex dishes, I think. I have a smaller one so I'll have to cut the recipe down quite a bit. Also, I use turkey meat for everything so I'll probably try this with turkey and see how it turns out.
This is kind of a 'play it by ear' recipe.  You can add as much cheese, enchilada sauce, meat or tortillas as you want.

1-1.5 lb hamburger meat
1 lb of chili meat
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
2 6oz-8oz packages of cheese (I use two cheeses either:  American, swiss, Colby, Monterrey jack or mild cheddar.  Usually it's American and another type) shredded
1-2 cans Old El Paso enchilada sauce (mild, medium or hot)
Corn tortillas (I like to use Mission tortillas because they're not as thick)

Brown both meats together and drain. Add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 tsp ground cumin and 1 tsp of salt.

Spray the bottom and sides of glass dish with whatever kind of oil you prefer.

Spread a thin layer of Old El Paso enchilada sauce on the bottom of pan.
Cut the tortillas in half and add a layer on top of enchilada sauce.
Add a layer of the meat then a layer of cheese.

Repeat process from enchilada sauce, tortillas, meat and cheese.

It's usually about 3 layers, depending on the size of the dish. On the last layer, after the meat and cheese go ahead and add one last layer of enchilada sauce.

Cook about 40-45 mins @ 400 degree.  Place closer to the bottom rack.

You'll know it is ready when the edges start bubbling and the cheese is melted.

I hope that covers everything.

Haven't sewn anything in awhile. Found this in my fabric pile, needed two more small stitches, and voila, done.

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Pressed [MAC] Pigments on: July 12, 2006 12:36:26 PM
I hope it's okay that I post this. I obviously didn't make the makeup itself. They're pigments by MAC.

Pressing pigments has been my latest obsession. It cures those late night-3am-wide awake-nothing to do blues.

So for those of you who aren't familar with MAC pigments, a pigment is "a highly concentrated loose colour powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Pigment comes in an excellent range of colours. Use to create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Pigment does not streak or cake, is easy to blend and long-lasting" - maccosmetics.com

Looks like this.

It's really somewhat of a hassle to have to deal with the loose powder, for me at least. I saw some girls had pressed them into a pan/regular eyeshadow form in the mac community on livejournal and decided to give it a try.

I don't actually own that many jars of pigments. Haha. The majority of these were samples I bought from girls in that LJ community.

But yes, it was somewhat of a trial and error process. A lot of the girls who had tried it and did mini-tutorials had varying ways of doing it so I just winged it.

Anyways, here are the pics.

As you can tell, some of them don't look at the great. They're kinda bumpy but have since been fixed, I just don't have new pics. I've also pressed a couple more, but again, no pictures.

That's it, I suppose. Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Skull Clutch for Prom on: May 13, 2006 05:22:52 PM
I basically waited until the last minute for everything for my prom. I started my dress the week before and it wasn't until two hours before that I realized I didn't have a purse/bag/anything to match. Everything I had for prom fit so well together that I had to make something to just throw it off.  Tongue

The dress: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94982.0

The bag:

It's taken at an angle, so I think that's what makes the flap look off. I didn't even have time to sew the skull on. It's just glued.

Yeah, I just threw random stuff in there for the picture.

I must have looked odd sitting in front of the sewing machine in my prom dress trying to finish this on time. Haha.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 1952 Vintage Vogue Dress- 2nd dress added 05/20 on: May 13, 2006 11:28:45 AM
Well I decided I wanted to make my dress the week before prom. Haha. I couldn't find anything spectacular without digging waaaaaaay deep in my [parents'] pockets so figured the best way to go would be to make it.
My mom did most of it, actually, because I probably couldn't follow directions to the T if my life depended on it. I'm supposed to make another for a wedding this upcoming Saturday all on my own though. That's actually what I should be doing now. Hah.

I'm pretty proud of it though. For my mom, at least. A lot of people couldn't believe that it was home-made. One of my friends even asked me if I got it from Banana Republic because he knows I've bought a dress from there before.

I don't have any full body pictures with me in it yet, but I had 3 professional photos [or whatever you want to call em] taken at prom so I'll scan those whenever they come in. And whenever I get around to it.

This is it laying out on my messy bed.

I added the tulle sash literally right before prom. While waiting for the limo, I had my mom take me to walmart in my dress to buy it. Haha. People in this town act like they've never seen a dress before.  Undecided

Not a full shot, but the bodice at least.

It was fairly easy to make, just a pain to cut out. I also went a size to big with it, so we had to take the bodice in a few times.

It was SUPER HEAVY. This next one I'm about to start working on in a bit should be much lighter though because the fabric isn't half as thick as the black stuff.

I think that's it.

My friend and I are doing a project for school in which we're starting our own online business. The website still needs some work, but here's some of the stuff we've been working on. We sold most of our stuff in person at little 'shows', I guess you could say.



(The bag is lost somewhere in my skirt. Haha)








I think some of the bags look funny. Shape-wise. But they're really not.

Senior year, is a very stressful year, but sewing makes it better.


Anywho, thanks for looking!
