Chili

Published by under Cooking,Recipes

I recently found out the beauty of making food and then freezing it. One of my favorites to do this with is chili. I found this recipe called It’s Chili by George!! on All Recipes and modified it to my liking.

Hollah if you love challah

Published by under Cooking,Food,Recipes

Every Friday night I try to make challah for me and hubby. Some weeks are just too busy, but I do make an effort. I make a whole loaf (about 1.5 lbs), but it usually only lasts us the weekend since hubby loves it and we use extra to make french toast. The recipe I […]

Yoga pants

Published by under Sewing

I was inspired by this Threadbanger video on how to make your own yoga pants to copy a pair of my favorite dance pants. I did it a bit more ad hoc, laying the tracing paper over the pants and tracing that way rather than using a tracing wheel, but I’m quite pleased with how […]

Swirl curtains

Published by under Sewing

I desperately needed some curtains for my office. So I decided to make some super simple ones. Of course it’s never that simple with me. I decided on a great pink fabric with swirlies. Love it. But I didn’t want bright fuchsia to show from the street so I decided to line the curtains with […]

Planting Update

Published by under Garden

Some updates on how things are growing. Overall, great! Everything is really perking up. Except the berries. We’ll have to see how they do. Above is the sage which is growing quite nicely. Need to make something with those nice leaves. More pictures after the break.

Angel Food Cake . . . Cupcakes

Published by under Cooking,Food,Recipes

Some friends were coming over for BBQ and I wanted to have strawberry shortcake. But I wanted individual ones so I figured I would use my minibunt pan to make little angel food cakes. I put all the extra into cupcake containers. Turns out the cupcakes worked much better since it was insanely hard to […]

More planting

Published by under Garden

Planted some new items in my herb garden last weekend. Kicking off the bunch are some strawberries. Each little pocket (there are 6 of them) has a strawberry plant. You can already see some delicious berries forming. I tried one today. Yum 🙂 More pictures after the break.

Melon Cream Soda

Published by under Food

Found the coolest drink at a sushi place the other night: melon cream soda. Tastes like cream soda, but also totally has a melon flavor to it. Quite tasty!

Some fun dim sum

Published by under Food

For my husband’s birthday we were going to go to his favorite Indian spot, but they were unfortunately closed (for “inventory” — we hear they’re switching management unfortunately). So instead I got to choose and we decided to go to a Chinese restaurant called Fu Lam Mum which had pretty good reviews on Yelp.

Green cakey thing

Published by under Food

Some random food posts coming up. Tried this cakey appetizer at a local Persian restaurant. No, I didn’t know it was green before I ordered it. Can’t remember what it was but it was all vegetarian and didn’t have much taste. I’m sure if I saw the name I would remember. But I won’t be […]
