I’m not a particularly zealous fan of strawberry jams. When
I need to preserve fresh strawberries, I puree them in a food processor with
sugar, pour into containers and store in the freezer. However, this rich and luscious
chocolate strawberry jam is an exception.
The prawns in garlicky oil were the first recipe on my seattlecookingspree.net
website. I posted it at the very beginning of 2009 and three and half years
later it's still a big hit. Whenever and wherever I
make it. Every single time!
Remember our homemade smoked salmon I posted about here? Here’s how you can turn it into quite delectable pâté, so fast and easy to make it took more time for me to type this recipe than to actually make it.
Wednesday was my last pottery class this quarter and we had a potluck. I was thinking about bringing something easy to make, easy to transport, easy to eat even without plates and utensils and came up with these savory puff pastry squares. All you need is a package of puff pastry sheets (I use Pepperidge Farm), soft goat cheese, some vegetables and mushrooms and no more than 45 minutes of your precious time including baking.
Amazingly enough, I've only noticed a couple of days ago that I haven't been posting about my crafts for a long while now, to say the least. Well, in fact, my very first entry was about block printing and I haven't been posting about crafts ever since. Meanwhile, the name of my blog suggests that I do it more often. So here I am, hastily catching up. With glass etching this time.
These are my works from a couple of years ago. I'm planning to get back to glass etching sometime by the end of the summer after I'm done with my pottery class.
