DIY orange candle || project 6

In pinterest project on May 18, 2012 at 1:08 pm

I followed all directions and that wick did not light.  I tried this twice because I truly wanted it to work.  I’m not sure what this woman did – maybe she snuck in lighter fluid – who knows.  Anyway, splurge on candles today!  I’m a fan of Low Country Luxe candles!  They’ve got that lovely southern scent down to an art!

p.s. im totes aware i used a grapefruit & not an orange.

 I’m really enjoying this cooking thang I got going on.  This time I made a little video you for guys!  Shot with my iPhone!  wahhh!  Yah. APP : 8MMThis was really good.  It lacked a bit of taste but that’s clearly my doing – I must’ve missed a step.  I’m an apathetic chef I’ve learned. I just skim through recipe directions, oops.  All in all, not a waste of time!  And when you watch the video, please don’t judge my po-dunk pots, pans, and utensils!  Ehhhh, I’m workin’ with what I got here!

pinterest project 4 || I’m not sure what i was thinking it would taste like because I love avocado & macaroni – I guess just not together.  Gah, Get that taste out of my mouth.  The initial cheese sauce (cheddar!)  smelled and looked like heaven so it was rather painful adding in that pesky fruit (I had to look up if it was a fruit or veg btw).  I didn’t have a processor so maybe that’s the problem or maybe this traditional dish just shouldn’t be toyed with.  At least I now know how to make a very tasty mac & cheese dish (w/o the avocado)

It’s come to my attention that I happen to be in dire need of kitchen accessories all together.

This was labeled as a meal on the go but do you see the PB, bananas, and strawberries falling out?  I would cause a 10 car pile up trying to eat that and text while driving!  I also just flat out do not know how to roll wraps properly.  It was delicious though – I used PB 2 to substitute regular Peanut Butter.  Personally, this is just too sweet for morning time but a little night time snack paired with milk – makes me wish it was midnight already.

First day at the internship at mama’s sauce & it was everything I thought it would be.  A lot of people in one room with paper envy!  There’s some serious talent in there!

It’s merely day 2 but I am on a roll with these recipes!  Which makes me think one of them has to be terrible relatively soon.  The nice lady in Publix explained Quinoa to me as mini, gluten-free pasta (first time I’ve ever tried it!)  This meal made me feel like the healthiest person in the world – I even added a dash of cinnamon in the bean & corn portion.  Totes worth it!  Especially as a summer din din dish. ugh god I’m going to be so domesticated after this challenge!

crafts coming this weekend!

two tacos coming up!

In food ideas on May 13, 2012 at 8:21 pm

First day of pinterest project was a complete success.  These tacos are so good I want nine more while I’m writing this.  I even used the tube cilantro (hey i never said i was a master).  Super low calories too.  It’s just scrum-didda-lee-uptous  and it will probably be lunch tomorrow as well.  Also, I don’t know who labeled greek yogurt as yogurt but that’s sour cream to the taste – that should always be accompanied with nachos bellgrande not fruit.

the pinterest project

It was brought to my attention by my dear friend/ kinda cousin / person i stalk (amelia graves) that pinterest has this control over women these days and it can either completely empower them or make them feel inferior, useless, and might I add –  lazzzzyyyy…  and since I fall somewhere between those categories she decided it was up to me to pinterest project this situation out.  So, for the next 30 days I will be completing one pinterest recipe or DiY a day.  You can follow my pins here to see what I’ll be up to, ya know –  if you want to (puppy dog eyes)

I want to get down to the grit with these tasks and see if a regular person can re-create these beautiful pictures that merely get pinned and never put to use.  This won’t be easy, for I have very little kitchen supplies for cooking and just enough Elmer’s glue for one 3rd grade art project.  Basically I’m going to tell you if it’s complete garbage or if it’s actually worth the time and effort.
