5.   Biscuits

tried to make biscuit burger buns. biscuits are flaky they did not hold up well. I'm also on the hunt for the best low carb flour to make bread. I found this Jowar flour at a little Indian shop, it has 5g per 1/2 cup but has a gritty taste, it cost 2.00 . soy flour cost  7.00 for the same amount with 4g carbs also not the best taste/texture

6.   Shorts/underwear

used this tutorial

The brown pair are skin tight every where but the waist. I did 10" for the waist,12" the the body/leg, 3" inseam, 12" for the sides. I have a 33" lower waist/upper hip bone, 22" thighs . so these numbers seemed ok to me at the time. not so much. they fit like boy shorts and its hard to get up so i dont know if adding elastic to the waist is even worth it.

white pair fit great.  I did 11" for the waist,14" the the body/leg, 3" inseam, 12" for the sides, made the elastic 30" so it doesn't cut into me. I would make another pair but now I only have scraps left in my fabric box. think i need to go to jo-anns

I love my bunting Texscrapper!!!!

On new years I tried a recipe for Oven Fried Chicken Wings.  They are super buttery... Next time I may try to make them in veggie oil or something.  Mine also didn't crisp up as much as the ones in the photo on the blog

Recipe from FOODLOVERR http://foodloverr.com/oven-fried-chicken-drumsticks/

I made a new chicken marinade last night and it turned out fabulously!
I found the recipe on Pinterest from Bombshell Bling.  It's called Mama's Sweet Marinade Chicken

Link to the recipe http://www.bombshellbling.com/mamas-sweet-marinade-chicken/

FreakieGeekie, groovy archery set. Does the bow really send arrows?

Not very far. The felt weighs the thin arrows down too much.

I updated my main list, but here's a pic for those who would like to see.  Missing outfit from picture is the swimsuit

I made 3 of each outfit.  The mermaid was self designed as was the ballerina, the snowsuit and cowgirl outfit came from simplicity patterns.  The birthday girl was thrilled, and the next set of doll stuff will likely be for Easter (I fill the eggs with the doll stuff since my oldest niece isn't candy crazy but her 2 younger sisters won't eat anything but candy, so most eggs have toys/craft kits in them.


Looking for the free row by row patterns.  If you are able to get me one from your town I will paypal you $2 for postage.

I have to share this "Cheesecake" - I bought special ingredients, and it was made just to try the recipe, not because we needed it to eat, so that fits my personal requirements for calling food a project.

It came from a photo that someone shared on Facebook, 3 ingredient Cheesecake, and it called for a tart crust, a can of condensed milk, and a litre of yogurt. I'm glad I googled it first, because I changed that to half a litre, and used greek yogurt instead of normal. I don't think this quite warrants it's own post, so I'm going to share my recipe here (since I figure you'll ask for it anyway)

Stupidly easy (but impressive looking) Raspberry and White Chocolate Yogurt Tart
(Also know as the 3 ingredient Cheeseless Cheesecake)

1 x 250 g packet choc ripple biscuits, crushed
Melted butter
500 g White Chocolate & Raspberry flavoured Greek Yogurt
1 can condensed milk

Combine biscuit crumbs with melted butter.
Spread mixture in a 20 cm microwave-safe dish.
Mix the yoghurt and condensed milk together and pour into base.
Microwave the tart for 5 minutes, it will be slightly firm to the touch.
Refrigerate until the filling is set.
Decorate with white chocolate hearts if showing off to family.

Ah well, they look great and it's safer that way. Smiley

The baby socks are adorable. I love the colorful yarn you used.

That1girl, the butterfly pants are super cute. You could add a side strip of another fabric or lace to widen the flowery shorts. They are so cute, you could try to save them.
Did you try putting a bit of yeast with warm water in a bowl? If it doesn't bubble in 5/10 minutes, the yeast isn't good anymore. I found that even if the yeast still works, I have to increase the amount month after month. Usually, at one point, the bread tastes too much of yeast and doesn't "grow" a lot, and I realize I need to change the yeast.

The marinade chicken looks delicious, and I'm not even hungry right now!

The doll outfits all look good. Did you make the shoes and hat too? It's a great idea to put them in the Easter eggs. There's always more chocolate than my husband can eat at our house. He's the only one still eating chocolates once all the eggs are open.

The cheesecake is a great recipe when you only have access to a microwave.

thank you yoopidou i might try adding to the shorts later. maybe the yeast was bad ive had it for a couple years

« Reply #309 on: January 11, 2014 06:36:17 AM »

I would say the yeast was bad, if it is several years old. I suppose you use dried yeast, it can store 1-1 year, unopened. Fresh yeast stores for around 1 month in the refrigerator.

I love the doll-clothes, it makes me want to make some too. I loved dolls when I was a little girl, and my mother made a lot of lovely outfits for them. My daughter mostly played with Barbie-dolls, but it is funnier to make cloths for a little bigger dolls.
The cake looks delicious.
