bread for friends.

Amish friendship bread... a friend gives you a starter batter, over the course of ten days you stare at it, wondering what it's going to taste like, mashing the bag every day, adding flour and milk on day 4. I was so ready to make my bread this morning and, of course, I kept getting pulled away from it. Finally, I divided up my own starters to give away, and made a mighty fine loaf of sweet Amish bread.

should I grow a long beard?

pistachios + dried cranberries = awesome

+ =

I love pistachios. I also love dried cranberries. Since I had some of both on hand this weekend and I'm experiencing a mild obsession with granola lately, I decided to try my hand at making my own pistachio cranberry granola.

my latest masterpiece... ready to put some milk on it!

meatless mondays

So tonight I had dinner with a friend and her boyfriend and became inspired to follow more blogs of people that I don't know... I also became inspired to make my apartment cuter and cleaner, but that's a whole other blog.

So I was searching around for cool blogs and I was wanting to follow a good veggie blog when I came across...

I think it's a pretty cool idea... encouraging people who wouldn't normally go vegetarian to go meatless just one day a week. Could be quite a challenge for some people.

I have an omelet problem. I don't like my omelets to be too eggy and I love to overload them with veggies, so I usually end up breaking them. Unless my friend Ashlee Jean is with me, she brings my omelets good luck. Here's my busted up veggie omelet.

I don't care if it's busted... it still tastes fantastic.

something tells me I'm into something good.

too much time has passed. I went to massage school and took a hiatus from blogging... but now I'm back. I'm just going to go with my most recent cool thing...

My friend Robbie is a hula hoop maniac. She makes and sells hula hoops and even teaches hula hoop classes. She recently attended a hula hoop workshop where she sold hoops and some other items. She asked me if I would be interested in selling my feather headbands there, so I made a few for her to sell. Here she is modeling one of my feathers...

and here are some pics of my feathers that were taken at the workshop...
