2  new old dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by WeisserRegenbogen on: November 21, 2010 03:02:31 AM
I made this dress a few years ago and it has been sitting in my wardrobe ever since, except for some photoshoots. Now, a friend of mine got it and we're going to alter it a bit to make it perfect for her (I will add the pictures of the finished version as soon as we're finished and I got my new camera from the post office tomorrow Smiley)

It's all midnight black silk satin with silk lining and trims and I love it!

6  the best cinnamon rolls you'll ever eat in Recipes and Cooking Tips by WeisserRegenbogen on: June 08, 2010 01:52:41 PM
really Cheesy

Ingredients for ca. 24-30 pieces:

    * 500 g all purpose flour
    * 75 g sugar
    * a dash of salt
    * 1 packet fresh (preferably) or dried yeast (when in doubt, go with the instructions on the packaging on how much yeast is recommended for 500 g flour)
    * 150 ml milk
    * 150 g plain yogurt
    * 75 g butter

All ingredients will work best at room temperature.

apple-cinnamon-almond sauce:

    * 1-2 apples (depending on size)
    * a few dashes of lemon juice
    * 1-2 tsp cinnamon powder (or how much you see fit)
    * 1 packet vanilla sugar
    * 2 tbsp honey
    * 2-3 tbsp minced almonds
    * 2-3 tbsp raisins
    * a few cloves if you like them
    * 2-3 tbsp apple sauce (optional)
    * some milk and butter

cinnamon roll sunscreen:

    * 1 egg yolk
    * 1 tbsp milk
    * 1 tsp sugar


dough preparation

   1. mix flour, sugar with a dash of salt in a large bowl
   2. add yeast (when using fresh yeast, it's actually recommended to make a sponge first, with yeast, flour and sugar, then letting it sit/rise for a few minutes and then mixing it all together, but in my world, it also works if you throw everything together Tongue)
   3. add milk and yogurt and knead everything until you have a nice, slightly sticky dough
   4. now add the butter and mix it in well (no discernible buttery bits, please Grin)
   5. let the dough rise in a warm place until it has roughly doubled in size (30-45 min. depending on the temperature)

sauce preparation (while the dough is rising would be a good time Cheesy)

    * peel the apples and cut them into small pieces (a size that you are comfortable with having in your pastry, the smaller, the better...), put them in a large enough mixing bowl
    * add a few dashes of lemon juice, cinnamon, almonds, cloves, vanilla sugar, honey and raisins. let sit for some minutes to get the juices flowing.
    * later, melt a generous dab of butter (1-2 tbsp) in a pot, then add the apple mixture, apple sauce and a little milk or yogurt (I cannot say how much, as I totally improvised here... ), bring to boil, then let it simmer until enough water has evaporated (this can take 15-20 minutes or more). You don't need to constantly stir it, but keep an eye on it, as burnt sugar is really nasty. When it's ready, it will be rather gooey and not run anywhere you don't want it when putting it on your dough)

shaping and baking

take the dough out of the bowl and give it a good kneading. rrr. dough likes it.

I now separated the dough into two roughly equal pieces. One I used for cinnamon rolls, the other for turnovers (which would be a german Apfeltasche... much nicer word Cheesy)

for the cinnamon rolls: roll the dough into a flat (ca. 5-7 mm / approx. 1/4" - the dough will rise!) square or rectangle, about 25-30 cm wide. Spread the filling in a thin layer, right to the edges, except for the top one — leave a few cm free here. From the bottom edge, start rolling the dough square into a nice little roll.
Cut equal slices about 2-3 cm wide ( ca. 1") and place them on a baking tray.
for the apple turnovers: take small bits of dough (maybe 3-4 cm in diameter) and roll it into balls, then flatten them until you have a circle about 10-12 cm (4-5") wide. place one tbsp of filling (a bitt too much in the picture Wink) in the middle and fold over.

Press the edges shut with a fork or your fingers.
Be sure to leave enough space between them as they will rise! Now, mix the egg yolk, milk and sugar together and brush the piecelets with the mix. This way they'll get a nice, shiny crust wit moist and tender interior.

Preheat oven to 200°C and bake for pretty much exactly 20 min.

Let them cool (at least a bit so you don't burn yourself Tongue) and enjoy with a glass of fresh, cool milk!

8  Running out of planters? Use newspaper! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by WeisserRegenbogen on: May 29, 2010 11:50:19 AM
I've long run out of plastic pots to grow my plants in, so I had to think of something else (I don't want to spend money on things like planters, and also, why should I use plastic?) and thought: newspaper! Cheap (rather... free), easy to get your hands on, easy to work with! It is temporary, yes, but that makes it great for growing the plants until they're big enough to put outside and then, you can put them in the ground with the pot, as it will soon disintegrate and make yummy compost for your little babies :3

They're totally easy to make, you just need a sheet of paper and a round something. Tutorial can be found here Smiley
